This 1894 Victorian Inn offers lakefront accommodations, many with water views, and seasonal vacation rentals on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH's largest lake and just minutes from the Bank of NH Pavillion. ...More Choose a guest room, suite or cottage, all non-smoking and all with a queen bed, private bath, air conditioning, TV, FREE WiFi, alarm clock, hair dryer, and many with lake views. The Inn is located in a no-wake area on the lake, so boats pass quietly. Enjoy our private beach, relax in our lakefront gazebo or settle into one of the comfy seats on our wraparound porch to watch the boats pass by or listen to the loons. Boat rentals available at area marinas or bring your own canoe or kayak. Winter visitors will enjoy ice fishing on the lake, snowmobiling from the inn or cross country or downhill skiing at nearby Gunstock Mountain. Just a short drive to Weirs Beach attractions, the Winnipesaukee Playhouse and many area restaurants. Less
