We enjoyed our weekend stay here as a last minute get away from the city heat. Our room which was #1, was plenty big and very clean. The linens were spotless and fresh, and the bath towels nice and fluffy. Bathroom was clean and tiny. The mattress in this room really should be replaced. It is very squeaky and every... More

The inn itself was beautiful and well kept. Because of the view that was so breathtaking, you could feel yourself relaxing within minutes of arriving. There were so many great places to sit outside including a small private beach. The innkeepers were very friendly and did everything to make your stay great. Many wonderful places to eat and a few...

As you take the winding road down into the cove where the Inn is located, you'll realize that you're in a quiet, secluded location. The Inn is a lovely place to enjoy your stay on Lake Winnipesaukee. Your hosts, Bob and Maria, are a friendly and FUN pair. They welcome you as though you are guests to their home (which... More

The inn is located right on Smith Cove on New Hampshire's best lake, Lake Winnipesaukee. It is peaceful, quiet, and exceptionally clean. I particularly enjoy sitting on the gazebo (located right over the lake) and enjoying the evening breeze. The innkeepers are always very friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make you feel at home. While... More

Lovely Victorian guest house sitting right onthe edge of the lake. So peaceful sitting in the gazebo watching the boats go slowly by. The room was nicely decorated and spotless. However disappointed at poor provision of breakfast (a piece of cake and a coffee out of a thermos in a polystyrene cup!) and it would have been nice to have... More

We found this Inn while looking for a quaint place to stay the night after a late concert at the Meadowbrook pavilion in Gilford. We traveled up early in the day and had a delious dinner a walk's away from the Inn. The owners are very friendly and the quality and care that goes into making one's stay here is... More

We found this spot though a family member native to the area and it is packed with local charm. It's hard on a picturesque cove where you can sit under a covered roost and watch boats go in and out of the cove off Lake Winnipesaukee - a large inland lake with water clear down beyond 20 feet deep. There... More

Bob and his wife have done a wonderful job rebuilding an old Victorian Home into a small Inn right on Smith Cove on Lake Winnipesaukee. In addition to the main Inn, there is a delightful two story lighthouse with a spiral staircase to the bathroom and jacuzzi tub on the second floor and a small cottage with room for three... More

Stayed 2 nights in June 2013. Great location--we were catching a show at Meadowbrook and the Inn is maybe 7-10 minutes away. Clean rooms, management was nice, but breakfast was as other reviews had said, pretty lame...I can't say I was expecting a lot but it was some cut up squares of stale cake and some coffee...that was it. Rooms... More

This Inn is beautifully located and the managers are nice people. We have stayed here twice. However the service is remote as the managers live in a separate home. There are no in room coffee facilities or such a facility available in the common area. Breakfast was a muffin. Beds are small and hard. So much could be done to... More
