We got a room that had a balcony thought it would be on the water. Nothing ever saying it was not. Was supposed to have a room with 2 queen beds got a room with 2 doubles. The room was across the street. Which is a pain to leave registration to get over there. Room was clean like a standard... More

What a wonderful experience we had starting with our check in to our check out. We had a wonderful room, clean & spacious. Bathroom was newer with hair dryer and plenty of towels.

This was a one night in and out, but is was easy to see what a fun place this would be to stay for a longer period during high season. In September, we were unable to avail ourselves of the free kayaks and paddle boats, but there was plenty of clean sand and loungers. Having read some of the negative... More

I went there with a few friends for breakfast one morning while staying at a different resort. We arrived and they told us it would be a few minutes while they made us a table, 15 mins later they told us the same thing, 10 mins later we got a table. We waited for 20 minutes for someone to come... More

New Hampshire has always been a special place for my family. I go up there every summer and have recently been trying out different hotels. The Naswa beach bar has always been a fun spot to grab a drink. So my husband and I figured it must be a great place to stay as well.... Oh boy were we wrong!... More

It is extremely troubling and disappointing as the Owner of the NASWA to have a guest leave our property and post a horrible review. Normally all disgruntled guests are contacted privately and we do our best to address their concerns and right any mistakes which may have happened. This review is filled with untruths, made by a guest who became... More

My husband and I had a clean, comfortable room in the main building with a wonderful view of the lake. Staff was very helpful and informative, especially when pointing out a good jogging route. We visit friends in the area every year and would be happy to stay at the Naswa resort again.

The location of the Naswa Resort was great, the outside bar and beach was great. The staff was friendly. The room was very disappointing. It was dark, not super clean, tiny and VERY outdated. The beadspread on top of the bed was DIRTY, as in food or something on the underside of it. For $250.00 a night, some of the... More

We regret that this guest's stay did not meet their expectations. The one room lakeside Queen cottage is a favorite of many guests and has recently been remodeled with NH made furniture and new flooring. The bedspread, though clean and laundered,did have a suntan oil stain which mistakenly was not noticed by housekeeping. Once brought to our attention it was... More

NASWA is really one of those exceptions to a family owned business. I stayed with my son, my husband, and my service dog for 5 nights and felt that I should write a review. First of all, this is a lake resort and has everything you need. We chose to stay in a cottage and I'm so happy that we... More

We meet up with friends on Labor Day weekend to go to a concert at Meadowbrook. We booked a 3 bedroom suite as we were on our way to the venue. We had a blast at the resort! Great location, great staff, very clean and friendly.

Awesome location and fabulous staff, especially the Jamaicans! (Cornelia & Shoshonna at the restaurant, are the friendliest people you'll ever meet!) :) Talia and Peter? (tall bearded guy) at the beach bar were great! We had a great time, and look forward to going again!
