My husband and I came to the lovely lake area to see the Dave Matthews Band at nearby Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion and came a few days early to make a mini vacation of the visit. The Inn at Smith Cove was perfect! Beautifully situated on the lake with its own little beach area and gazebo. The property is lovingly maintained by Bob, the owner. The rooms are quaint and functional, our room, the Kelley Room had a super lake view. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing, just what we were hoping for. Thanks for a great stay, Bob!

We are frequent guests at the Inn and it is wonderful. The inn is clean the grounds are well maintained. The beaches are great, plenty of room to dig in the sand or float on a raft. The inn keepers Bob and Maria treat you like your family, and the staff could not be more friendly. The location is perfect if your spending time on the big lake and families are always welcomed.

Room Tip: The little House in the cove has lots of privacy. Room 4 corner room nice view of the lake

We stayed in the DeFalco room for 4 nights. This room is small, but has all the necessities-bathroom, air conditioner, tv, wifi. It was spotless which is important to me. Big fluffy towels each day and beautiful views of the cove. Coffee is provided in the morning as well as some pastries. The owners, Bob and Maria, are on site and very friendly and accommodating, as was the room staff. My one suggestion would be to put a lamp on each side of the bed, as it was impossible to read without one. Also, another clothes hook in the bathroom would help. Overall, we had a wonderful stay, the mattress and pillows were very comfortable and we slept very well. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Great views from most rooms. Very quiet.

We enjoyed our weekend stay here as a last minute get away from the city heat. Our room which was #1, was plenty big and very clean. The linens were spotless and fresh, and the bath towels nice and fluffy. Bathroom was clean and tiny. The mattress in this room really should be replaced. It is very squeaky and every time either one of us turned over it woke the other up. Not exactly the R&R we had planned. Also, there is not really any breakfast provided here at all. There's coffee (no decaf) and some sort of store bought baked goods covered up on a plate. This really should be stepped up. Somebody in this area has to be doing home baked pastries that could be ordered in fresh along with some fruit. Most B&B or Inn type of places also have soft toilet paper! They are cutting some corners here. The wraparound porch is a very relaxing place to sit and read or play a game, and there's a little dock where if you're a boater you can tie up for $30 a day. There is technically a "beach" but it is TINY and between two boat docks. This corner of Smith Cove is very much marina oriented with many power boats around. We did not find it noisy or smelly. Decor is spare. In our room there was an antique-ish lamp and an antique-looking doll, as well as a sign saying if you take anything your card will be charged. How hospitable! The inn keeper(s) were not around. If you are traveling with no car (we have a small airplane) you will want to either bring your bikes along, be prepared to walk, or take a car service everywhere because other than The Lyon's Den there is nothing close to here at all. This area is a quiet summer resort and people seem to mostly grill out and prepare their own food.

The inn itself was beautiful and well kept. Because of the view that was so breathtaking, you could feel yourself relaxing within minutes of arriving. There were so many great places to sit outside including a small private beach. The innkeepers were very friendly and did everything to make your stay great. Many wonderful places to eat and a few offered discounts because you were staying at the inn. There were places nearby to rent boats, go for a boat ride on the lake or just to visit for shopping. There was always tea, coffee and a fresh baked good waiting for you in the living room when you woke up.

Room Tip: just pick one of the front rooms, so you have a great view of the inlet from your room.
