We spent a two night getaway at the Ballard House and couldn't have made a better choice. The inn itself is beautifully restored and maintained. The rooms are quiet, nicely furnished, well decorated and immaculate. Gourmet breakfasts with items such as spinach, caramelized onion and gruyere strata, caramelized bacon, sausage, french toast, baked cinnamon apples, etc. made the mornings truly... More

Our stay two weekends ago at the Ballard House Inn was just perfect--we've been to numerous bed and breakfasts before, but none like this. What distinguishes the Ballard House is her hosts. Lynn and Brian are so warm and welcoming! And, the atmosphere they set seems to be contagious among the guests--we found ourselves chatting, laughing and sharing stories with... More

Brian & Lynn were wonderful hosts. The property was immaculately clean and breakfast was delicious. More importantly, they truly wanted us to enjoy everything their home had to offer. I enjoy the many conversations I had with Brian as well as the spectacular view.

We stayed at the Ballard Inn for 3 nights and honestly wished we could have stayed longer. Our hosts, Brian and Lynn, could not have been more helpful, professional and friendly. Our accommodation was beautiful and spotless and our breakfasts were a treat to be remembered as the best we had in our New England Tour. Meredith and the lake... More

We appreciate the time you took to write such a candid review about our Inn. You are spot on, an inn is bricks and mortar, it is the people who run it that make the difference. From our travel experience, we can remember those folks who went above and beyond with offering suggestions and adding special touches to make our... More

This was our second visit to this inn and it was just as nice as our first visit. We spent 3 nights there while we did some sight seeing, boating on Lake Winnipesaukee, leaf peeping, went to the Loudon NASCAR race and the Highland Games on Loon Mountain. It was a busy 4 days. The inn was located centrally for... More
