The Silver Sands Motel and Marina is an excellent place to enjoy Lake Winnepesaukee. The pool, beach and Marina are excellent. Meadowbrook is an entertainment facility across the street with top rate talent like Willy Nelson and others coming to play. I keep two boats there.

Quaint, retro 50's styles. Love the 50's style umbrellas on the beach and at the pool. We stayed in a motel room for 4 nights. Everything is very clean and very peaceful (except for concerts at Meadowbrook). Our room had a refrigerator and a 2 burner stove, just right for making little breakfasts and lunches, then we ate out at... More

I've been coming here for one week each summer for for close to 20 years, my wife since childhood. It's a great spot with the lake right in the backyard and a pool in the front yard. Very relaxing and low stress. Not too many frills. Nothing fancy. Just comfortable enough, really for a casual vacation. Free wifi, that works.... More

We stayed here because our friend keeps his boat at the adjacent marina. Not too much good to say about this place. It's very busy and sold out in the summer because of it's great location on the lake. Don't bother asking anyone for anything or complaining about anything they could care less. The cottages and rooms are old with... More

We stayed in White Sands Cottage 2 years in a row and will probably go back. We had a secluded beach where we could bring our kayaks. There is also a heated pool. The owner is on site, so there is no chance of having you stay ruined by any rowdy people. They have books, games and puzzles in the... More

Fun retro 50's (I could be off on the decade) flashback style. I loved how the back of our room had a sliding glass door the size of the whole wall. It opened up to the lawn near the pool. Really nice private beach on the lake also. Flat screen TV, fridge and microwave were nice. I didn't realize it... More

I rented a room here this past weekend and when I brought it to the front desk's attention that they had charged me nearly 50% more than the cost their website indicated for that room for that night I was told that they were aware of the issues and that the manager would call or stop by my room shortly....

Great place for kids and adults alike...there was a group of 40 of us and the motel staff was very accomodating and friendly....It's clean, there's places to park your boat, niuce beach...ya we're going back again... Right across the street from Meadowbrook, so if the breeze is right, you can hear some of your favorite artsists...
