The kids had fun making their own sundaes. The staff were friendly and helpful. We bought some unique stocking gifts as well.

This is a VERY nice, quaint combination of Swiss/German Gift Shop, Local Chocolate Candy making of numerous varieties: Chocolate, Maple, Fudge, etc. etc. Home made Ice Cream is also available. along with other foods. You can hear a old fashion Player Piano for just 25 ¢. The variety of gifts/souvenirs available will meet any need you want. You will regret... More

After spending time on a cruise of one of the area Lakes, my wife decided we needed to stop by for some ice cream. We did the ice cream smorgasbord. You simply pick out the size of ice cream you want, and whether or not you want toppings. Choose your flavors (a nice variety) then go crazy with toppings. I... More

We were on a Starr Bus Tour. This was a stop after the Boat Trip on the lake. The ice cream was average and there were far more tacky souvenirs than candy. You had to look really hard to find the cheese. found a cute moose toy but it had a ribbon printed with the word Canada on it. I... More

Sad....loved this place in the 70's and looked forward to it on every visit to Winnipesaukee. We stopped for ice cream on Saturday and have to agree with several other reviews - rude service, horrible and the vanilla ice cream was yucky! How is that even possible? Shop still cute, chocolates looked good but we didn't try them. Very disappointed... More

Stopped by on an August evening to have ice cream with our kids. Their ordering system is confusing to say the least. You have to pick your size, pay and then pick your flavor and toppings after. My husband ordered a root beer float and had to pick his own soda. He was then reprimanded when he wanted chocolate syrup... More

I have been going to Kellerhuas whenever I am in the area... a tradition that started 45 years ago when I was a child and one that continues today with my son. God bless us all that more generations will know its charm. The ice cream bar with sweet toppings and little American flags makes me happy every time I... More
