This is a clean and friendly Inn. Beautiful view of the lake from our screened in porch. Very quiet although close to road there was not a lot of traffic. The continental breakfast was simple and a good start to our day. Our bed was a bit firm but I realize that I prefer a soft bed.

Thank you for your review of our motel. Cleanliness and comfort are very important to us and we are glad you found the rooms as such. We know that sometimes the pillows are too lofty for some and we do have extra smaller pillows available. When you are in the area again, please ask and we will get softer pillows... More

Minutes from Mt. Sunapee, great restaurants and hiking trails, this is a perfect location for a spring family trip. We enjoyed the hospitality and the clean rooms. The owners were helpful in helping us pick restaurants and local attractions to visit. We will definetly return.

A classic family run roadside motel within easy reach of Mount Sunapee Ski Resort & Lake Sunapee State Beach. Accommodations are dated & meager, but the prices are reasonable for the vicinity. The Motel has two levels of rooms, all with an elevated view of Lake Sunapee. Our room, well in this travelers experience, 2 double beds belong in a... More

Thank you for your review. Keeping our prices affordable is important to us. We are dissappointed you felt that the beds belong in a museum; the mattresses and box springs are only a few years old. We only have 2 rooms on our upper level that have 2 double beds mainly because 2 queens will not fit in that room... More

My young son, boyfriend and I recently stayed here. We took advantage of their Sunapee ski & stay package. I checked around and they had the best discount as a bundle: ski with stay. (You receive ski vouchers and then need to exchange them for a ticket.) We stayed in Room 9 which is on the bottom level. First, it... More

The Inn was maintained very nicely. My kids thought that it was really cool that they could see the lake from their deck. Plenty of parking with easy accessibility to the room. Affordable and clean. The continental breakfast was ok. The inn was run by a nice family!

We were in town for a quick 2 night stay to visit family and really felt lucky to have found this place online. Our room was pristine and all of the litttle touches really made a difference. From the bedding to the vase of pretty faux flowers to the samples of vitamin C it made for a nice experience. There... More

My wife and I booked one night on our way up to Morningside. The next morning we liked the place so much we booked a second night. This is an older property, but the room was clean, the beds comfortable and the bathroom clean and functional. Overall, there were no problems with our upper level room. The motel has no... More

This motel has some decent reviews and I was shocked at the condition of our room. Yes, the owners are nice and friendly, but that's not a reason to give the motel good reviews. I stayed with my granddaughter. My room had 2 double beds with the bed posts broken and rattling around. I thought that was kind of dangerous... More

Thank you, we value the opinions of all of our guests. Our goal is to provide our guests a relaxing escape in the mountains of NH that also mimics the rustic environment in which we reside, not mirroring the façade of a city hotel. Being that you are a senior contributor on Trip Advisor, we would hope you would bring... More
