My husband and I spent two wonderful nights at the Ballard House Inn with Lynn and Brian as the perfect hosts. The Inn is beautiful, our room was great with an extremely comfortable bed and the softest sheets ever. The inn is immaculate and breakfasts were wonderful and filling.

This place was fantastic! We, too, based our choice on all of the great reviews, and we are so glad we did! Lynn and Brian were wonderful hosts, the Inn was beautiful, the rooms were spotlessly clean, the bed, bedding, and even the towels were amazingly soft and comfortable. We were greeted with a glass of wine upon our arrival... More

When we arrived at the Ballard House we were greeted at the door by Lynn, the hostess. She was very cordial and helpful, making us feel welcome immediately. She was joined by her husband, Brian (a fun guy) who carried our bags to our room. The Inn was as equally impressive as was our greeting. The cleanliness was beyond belief... More

There is little I can add to the other outstanding reviews of the Ballard House Inn. What cannot be seen from the pictures is the magnificent view from the back of the Inn which overlooks the lake and mountains. We look forward to returning!

Thank you for your review, we always appreciate the feedback and what different perspectives our guests provide. We tend to take for granted the outstanding views of the mountains and lake from the back of the house, however, having just returned from traveling ourselves, really stopped and took in how fortunate we are! Please do come back to see the... More

Once again, a fabulous weekend at Ballard House! It was as lovely as I remembered from the previous year. Everything in the home is charming to see, and thoughtful touches abound. Brian and Lynn even invited us to take a run in their snow saucer on the substantial backyard hill. We were very convenient to Gunstock Mountain or could have... More

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast prepared by them each morning and wonderful snacks, beer, and wine. Our room was gorgeous and extremely cozy with the fire place. We loved... More
