We set off on our cruise in appalling weather and very quickly the boat was shipping water through many "orifices". We were soon moved to a drier part of the boat!! Didn't really see anything of the lake as it poured down all the time. So perhaps my 3* rating may be a bit harsh!

We took end boat trip on the Mount Washington. The weather was chilly and a bit blowy but bright sunshine. The scenery was terrific the the trees in great colour. A really pleasant trip and I would recommend it. The boat fine and stable. The only annoying part was when the pier hand insisted on searching bags. I don't think... More

We had a lovely ride around the lake. We were with a touring group so also had the buffet, which was very good.

The two and half hour cruise was absolutely worth the time! We even got an AAA discount for our tickets. Sights were beautiful with million dollar mansions lining the shore. I would highly recommend this boat trip.

We go to this area every September. It is a beautiful time of the year and not many tourists. Most of the restaurants are open and all the shops! If you've never visited New Hampshire, it's a great place. Weirs Beach and its shops/restaurants are still opened as well! Awesome!

I grew up vacationing here and so it is magical to me! Understated and sort of like a hidden treasure, being from NY this is a much more relaxed way of life and it is great to get to experience even if just for a vacation!

Each year I begin my Farewell-to-Summer Tour about mid-August, visiting new or favorite summer places that are either closed or miserable in the winter. Lake Winnipesaukee is a longstanding favorite place. It’s a great place for relaxing, casual entertaining, and water sports. It’s a clear, clean glacial lake that is 21 miles long and up to 9 miles wide. It... More

We have been coming to Lake Winnipesaukee every summer since 2004. If you love boating, it is a fabulous place to spend a week or two with the family. Whether you trailer your boat or rent (there are plenty of marinas on the lake- I recommend Goodhue & Hawkins in Wolfeboro) the lake is breathtaking with plenty to see and... More

We went to a place called Oliver Lodge for Memorial weekend. It is multiple houses grouped together, however, you choose and rent just one of them to stay there. The lake was beautiful, however was cold but the kids didn't care. It's one of the largest lakes in the area and is crystal clear to the bottom, so hard to... More
