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

We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the Lighthouse and the wood workmanship on it was very nice, it was a very unique choice the views of the lake we're just beautiful.The owners were very hospitable and polite. The grounds are very nicely kept and they have two private beaches. It's a great place to go if you have... More

We were greeted in our 10x15ish room with a dead bug and didn't think much of it until its friends arrived throughout our 12-hour stay. In this short time, we killed three large flies, two spiders, two moths, a bee and a wasp. We also thought we heard the pitter patter of an animal in the wall behind the bed... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Inn Friday and Saturday of the weekend of July 4th. When we arrived we were greeted by Bob (the owner), he was very nice. Our room was the "De Falco" and it was perfect, clean, the bed was comfortable, lots of windows and great views. The owner lives in the house right next... More
