Went for a great little cruise across the lake and saw moose crossing the lake swimming to a private island. Kids had a snack in the boat that offered souvenirs and food if wanted. A bar located on top floor of boat and a great overall family time. Will definitely come back see you soon.

I took a trip on the Mount Washington one afternoon. The staff on the ship were friendly and gracious and seemed concerned about the safety of the passengers. There were always several staff members on the ramp when people were getting on and off the ship. The ship seems reasonably well maintained and a guy came and cleaned the tables... More

The Monday evening swing cruise with Angie and the Orphans was a terrific take. The dinner was OK and the band was wonderful. It was a fun evening cruise on Lake Winnipesaukee.

My husband & I were visiting with family & friends in Laconia, camping at Paugus Bay Campground-a really GREAT place to camp. We saw an ad in 1 of the papers & decided to do the Sunday brunch which was absolutely marvelous:great food, scenery & a wonderful cruise!! I'd do it again in a heartbeat :-)

We were only in town for the night and read good reviews about this trip. It was a Monday and we didn't know that it was senior night. It was Elvis tribute night as well. So we were probably close to the youngest folks there and we are in our mid fifties . The older crowd sprinted to the buffet... More

We took the morning cruise from Weirs Beach to Wolfeboro and back. The weather was beautiful, and visibility of the vast lake was good. There was not a lot of description to what we were seeing, and the announcements were not particularly clear. The cruise itself was calm and tranquil. There were some activities for the young children taking place... More

Hey All, I live in New Hampshire about 45 min away from Gilford and use tripadvisor.com all the time. I try to be as honest in my reviews as I can. We liked a lot about the cruise (music, dancing, scenery) but also had a few things that we didn't like or enjoy. Dinner on the cruise got a 6... More

It was a wonderful night of prime rib and maitais. Had to teach the bar tender how to make a maitais but he picked it up quickly and I'll have to come back soon, great atmosphere and great friends to experience it with.

Every time we visit the lakes area, we try to take a trip on either the M/S Mount Washington or one of the smaller boats. In some ways it's funny to think of a 200 foot boat being on a lake. The route the boat takes varies depending on the day. We like the one that goes to Wolfeboro or... More
