I've gone and read some other reviews for this Inn. They go into such great detail I don't believe I need to recapture what they've said. So, I will just say; do not think twice about where to say if you are going to this region ! The place is beautiful, inside and out. The enormous porch overlooking the lake... More

In truth we must admit this: we stayed in October. At peak foliage. On a sun splashed, but cool weekend. Brian and company were hitting on all cylinders, but this would be a lovely weekend in November--or March...everything conspires to make it so. An idyllic location on a (well...) pleasant lake, with a gracious, charming, elegantly (but invitingly) furnished old... More

Other B&B owners in the United States, take note! This is the way to do it. The Inn at Pleasant Lake has it all, without the song and dance of fiddly breakfast and ornaments everywhere. A perfect location with a view through the trees to a tree-lined lake; generous rooms with plenty of light; infomed staff who smile and keep... More

My wife and I stayed at this inn because we were attending a wedding in a nearby town. It turned out to be a good choice. The facility is a pleasant blend of a classic summer vacation house and a New England Inn. In the good ole days, this might have been the type of inn that the Blue Bloods... More

Thank you for your thoughtful review. Thank you also for mentioning the elements of not only being inside but also enjoying the atmosphere of the incredible outdoors.

We were half way through our holiday on the East coast and headed inland to New Hampshire for some "leaf peeping", this being October. We were captivated by the calm beauty of this B & B. The room was quite small but perfectly well equipped with a wonderful view of Lake Pleasant. The hotel boasts several cosy communal areas as... More

Historic B&B in countryside New London. Fall is the best time to visit. Incredible 7 course meal. Chef made a presentation of the meal and was very entertaining. He is from Columbus, Ms. Food had a southern flair to it. Inn is truly breathtaking in the fall.

Thank your for finding us all the way from Alabama. Thank you also for taking time to review the inn. If ever back in New England, please stop by again for some Northern (Southern) hospitality. Summers are spectacular on the lake, winter skiing is fabulous (especially midweek) and fall colors always make my jaw drop. Thanks again, Brian MacKenzie Chef... More

A very special Inn for special occations. The food here is exceptional and and the atmosphere very unique. Even during the wintrer a lovey place to just get away and sit by a cozy fireplace. Have been here twice and both times really enjoyed my stay.

Thank you for your kind words. We do love that the inn can adapt to both the winter and summer season so well. The atmosphere in the winter focuses around the comfort of the rooms and common rooms while summer tends to pull everyone outside to the lake and outdoor patio.

The entire area around Pleasant Lake provides an idyllic setting for this excellant B&B. The view from the beautiful landscaped patio on a hill overlooks the magnificent lake with a mountain in the background. The full breakfast, which is included in the room rate, varies each day & was delicious. The highlight of the evening was the explanation that Chef... More
