Our stay was fine, but at $200 a night, it should be more than fine. We were in the rooms across the street from the main hotel, so not quite on the lake. The room was outdated and we had no hot water for one of the three days we visited. The towels and sheets were like sandpaper. The beach... More

It is saddening to learn that a guest has left the NASWA disappointed. In the true spirit of hospitality we have contacted this guest privately to address their concerns. We appreciate this guest bringing their dissatisfaction to our attention. Sincerely, Cynthia Makris President NASWA Resort & Restaurants More

The location is great. My kids enjoyed the paddle boats and kayak that's available to the guest. We like the fact that you can bring your boat or jet ski and park it right there. The rooms were clean but very small. Some updates would be nice, but overall, I would stay there again. We had a great time. The... More

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We are happy to learn that you had a great time and intend to return. The NASWA Resort will celebrate its 80th season in 2015. We do agree that some of our rooms in the resort are smaller than others and it would be nice if they could be made larger.... More

We have stayed the NASWA several times but have also frequented the beach bar since the 80's, having friends with boats in the area. It's always a good time, the bar is a great place to have a pina colada and watch the sunset with you feet in the water and boat/people watch. We have stayed in the main hotel... More

Thanks for sharing your past experiences with others on TripAdvisor. The Beach Bar has grown and had many improvements since the 80's and it is wonderful to have you as a returning guest. Next season will be our 80th year! Watch for a BIG celebration! See you again, Cynthia Makris Owner NASWA Resort & NazBar More

We have stayed several times and will certainly return. The NASWA has many things to do and two great options for meals. You can eat at the beach bar while watching boats pass by in the channel or eat at the Blue Bistro. Both have excellent food (especially the Bistro). There is often music, so it is a fun place...

We are thrilled to be your "best spot on the lake"! We are happy you have enjoyed the food at both the NazBar and the Blue Bistro, both offering great food in different but delightful settings. Did you know the Blue Bistro menu is available at the NazBar upon request? We are happy to bring your favorite Blue Bistro menu... More

We have been going to the Naswa for a few years now. Love it! This last time we stayed in one of the AquaVista rooms. This was my favorite! Loved having the great view of the lake. Service was great. I am counting the days until next summer to go up again.

Thanks Lisa D for being a loyal guest of the NASWA. The AquaVista Rooms offer great views of the lake and passing boats in the channel. What fun it is to relax on your deck and people and boat watch!! We look forward to seeing you again next summer! Sincerely, Cynthia Makris Owner NASWA Resort More

My wife and I are pretty picky about where we stay, so we were nervous about staying at a cabin. We were planning a one-nighter just to get away. We had some things planned and knew we wouldn't be spending a lot of time in the room anyway, so we went for it. We were pleasantly surprised! It exceeded our... More

Glad to hear you enjoyed our lakeside cottages. Early September is a wonderful time of year with summer like weather and less crowds and discounted rates. While you wont find our restaurants open during the week you will still find many things to see and do in the area. Our beach is always open and the complimentary boats, kayaks and... More

I wanted a place to stay to enjoy Lake Winnepesaukee and we certainly found it. Naswa is a very lively place to be. My seven grandchildren had an absolute ball! All day on the beach with the Kayaks and paddleboats and of course, the swimming. But sadly, at night, we had to return to our beachfont rooms. The rooms had... More

Thanks for sharing your NASWA experience with other travelers. It is wonderful to hear that your seven grandchildren had a ball!!

We have stayed at the Naswa before, so we knew what to expect. Although, check in time was for 3PM, we didn't get into our room until 5:30. We kept checking the front desk, finally I asked the housekeeping staff, they check the room, the room had been ready for awhile, little miss communication flaw that day. I was given... More

We stayed for a weekend and had a wounderful experience. We have been staying here every August for 10 years and every year they are doing upgrades and adding more specialty weekend theme's. I only wish we had more time during the summer to enjoy more weekends at the hotel.
