Another great experience. Brian and Lynn and wonderful people and their inn is a great experience every time. Clean and comfortable. Great breakfast. This inn is great for any event, rent out all the rooms for a special experience with friends and family.

Thank you too inn keepers/owners Lynn and Brian. We have driven by the Ballard House many times and always thought what a beautiful B&B. We finally took the time to go and we were not disappointed.

We stayed at the Ballard House Inn for NYE and had an amazing experience. The inn keepers (Brian & Lynne) were beyond welcoming and provided exceptional service throughout the stay. The reservation also included beer, wine, and a delicious country breakfast for less than $200 per night! The location is perfect too as it sits minutes away from downtown Meredith... More

In the summer I took my small office to the Ballard House Inn for a team building night away- we stayed in the Suites on the top floor, which have an incredibly beautiful view. Everything was perfect! Brian and Lynn are friendly, helpful, accommodating, and had wonderful suggestions on how my group could enjoy the surrounding area. This visit was... More

Brian and Lynn are fantastic hosts and made us feel completely at home. Simple yet well-appointed rooms in their lovely old home are warm and comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and provided us a tasty breakfast the next morning and regaled with some interesting stories and provided us with useful input for details on our next...

This was my second visit to the Ballard House Inn, and definitely not my last. We had our office Christmas party there last night and all I can say is WOW! Lynn & Brian are amazing. Brian met my husband Tim and myself in the driveway with a great big smile and a helping hand. I am sure Lynn would... More

We had a delightful 4 night stay at the Ballard House Inn the last week of September! Brian greeted us just as we parked as if we were family and indeed, it only took a few minutes before we felt like family. Brian insisted on carrying in our luggage and soon we were settling in for our stay. He and... More

Stayed here in August while attending a wedding. Loved the location, off the beaten path, yet close enough for dinner and activities. The innkeepers were wonderful. They were informative and interested in what we were doing and helped us have a marvelous stay! Would stay again!

We had an amazing stay at the Ballard House Inn. The guest house is beautifully maintained with lovely wood floors, intricate carpentry and very tasteful decor and furnishings throughout. However, the real gem of Ballard House are the owners and hosts. They maintain a perfect balance of hospitable, helpful and friendly without ever being overly intrusive. Nothing was too much...
