May seem a little pricey at first glance but it is a great way to see the lake. Although we live right near Lake Winni and have had many a boat on the Lake, we go on the Mount as locals call it, once a year. We typically take it from the Weirs and get off in Wolfeboro. We then... More

We took "the Mount" after we rode the scenic train from up the road (Meredith, NH) to pierside. The ride down from the train station ("Rail & Sail") was enjoyable and made the vehicle parking very easy, compared with what we would have faced trying to park in the Weir's Beach area. The lake ride was good as was the... More

The Mount is a great way to enjoy the lake and see the beautiful scenery around the lake. Relaxing and well worth the morning or afternoon that you spend aboard for a fall foliage cruise. The fall foliage colors of the lake's region are really outstanding when seen from the Mount on a sunny fall afternoon during the early October... More

We enjoyed going on this boat with our 3 young children. We were free to bring our food/drink on board and sit in the covered area w/ them. It is a tad bit too long for young kids, but for adults it is fine. Just buy your kid an ice cream 2/3 of the way through and you'll be fine.... More

First of all, the weather was perfect. Crisp, cool, sun shining and the water SOooooo blue! Now is this the setting for a perfect cruise or what? We cruised on a Sunday for the champagne brunch. While we don't drink alcohol, we throughly enjoyed the coded, tea, hot chocolate, juice or sodas! The cuisine was amazing. There were so many... More

We really enjoyed our "motor ship" ride around the lake.The loading and unloading of passengers was well organized and user friendly. The captain of the ship made several announcements throughout the trip, informing us of landmarks etc we were passing. They had free coffee and food and drinks for purchase.

There is so much to do in this area, from hiking to sailing etc. the scenery is beautiful,. We went on Lake Squam (which is where Katherine Hepburn filmed "On Golden Pond".) It was so beautiful and very tranquil. We claimed up Rattlesnake Mountain (a steep climb about 30mins) and viewed the lake from above, great views. We also visited... More

Very enjoyable and good narrative from the captain. Food and beverages available too! What's not to like? We did wonder how crowded it would feel if it had a capacity passenger list.

While visiting New Hampshire, we decided to try out the cruise to see the area lake. It was a quiet, beautiful fall day, and we had a wonderful time. The ship arrived on time, and the crew was friendly and helpful. We went during the week, so there plenty of seats. I also had the opportunity to walk around the... More
