Simply an outstanding venue! Beyond the sumptuous cuisine, your evening... is an experience! From the warm, friendly greeting upon arrival, to the personal service level attention, the evening flows seamlessly and intuitively. Based on a Prix Fixe Menu, one arrives approx. 30-45 minutes prior to the 7:00 Dinner for cocktails, a welcoming fire, and a splendid musical and vocal interlude... More

We enjoy the Inn and have only enjoyable times there. Their front porch overlooks Newfound Lake and the sun just sparkles off the lake. The Inn is of a vintage age but is quite lovely. When we go, we will sit on the porch and order drinks and appetizers. Either way, you will not be unhappy. It's quiet and lazy.... More

We're not sure this review was intended for our property as we are on Pleasant Lake, in New London, NH. We do offer a lovely porch with an incredible view over Pleasant Lake and across to Mt.

A charming inn, fantastic food. Chef makes a presentation about the menu choices. Quality of the food is outstanding. Tenderloin was delicious and sword fish fresh with a nice sauce. Squash soup was a real hit with everyone. My guests were impressed with the food and enjoyed their meal.

So glad everyone enjoyed their meal and the experience at the Inn. Chef is very fond of cooking "in season" and the squash soup has indeed been very popular. It is just one more way he strives for the freshest experience focused on peak flavors. More

We dined here recently and while we didn't stay here, those who did stay there raved about the inn. As far as the dining was concerned, it was excellent. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, the service accommodating, and the food wonderful. We had one dinner of tenderloin and another of scallops. Both were prepared beautifully. The salads were tasty,... More

Our dinner was excellent! Meeting the chef, Brian Leary, hearing the details and care he and his team put into making our scrumptious dinner prepared from local farms, was an added bonus. I ordered a white wine spritzer of sorts, which was made with local strawberries. Fabulous!
