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

We had a wonderful two night get away to celebrate my birthday. Lynn and Brian are the perfect hosts. They have great information to share about what to do , see and eat in the area. They will even make reservations in restaurants for you. The inn is immaculate! It is obvious how much both of them enjoy what they... More

My wife and myself stayed at the Ballard House for two nights. Lynn and Brian are "The Best"! The food was outstanding, the Inn is extremely clean, and the rooms are very comfortable.

So glad you visited and had a great time. It was a good group with lively conversation the whole weekend! Next time chasing the little white ball and a shop-a-thon will be the priorities. Tell Ramona her bed will be waiting! More

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review and for your complimentary comments. It is true that the house seems empty when we have a good group, like yours', leave us. People laugh but its sad when people who have really enjoyed themselves check out. Please consider visiting us again, we would welcome a return visit! More

I've stayed at a lot of hotels, but never at a B&B. This Inn really set the bar high. My husband & I never want to stay at another B&B. We can't wait to go back next year! Before we left, we were already planning our next trip to return. When we arrived, the owners were so friendly. They immediately... More

What an interesting building, great views and fantastic hosts Brian and Lynn. Lovely room perfectly clean and very generous snacks, drinks etc. Information about restaurants and places to vist was perfect. we like to walk in the evening and have aquiet drink with a meal but it was necessary to drive. Otherwise the location was great.

We always have great fun hosting folks from the UK. We hope we helped make your holiday memorable. Yes, the Inn is less than a 5 minute drive to town, but the views and sunsets from the back porch while enjoying a complimentary beverage are a worthy trade off! Many thanks for submitting your feedback. More

Wow! What a great time at the Ballard house. Brian and Lynn are awesome, accommodating and authentic people. The house is absolutely in amazing shape and the cleanest place I've ever stayed. We will definitely stay here when visiting Meredith again.

If I could possibly rate them higher than a 5, I would. Brian & Lynn are the ideal hosts in every way.
