“Inn By the Bandstand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2006

We just returned from a stay at the Inn by the Bandstand. We were hoping to stay the entire weekend but because of family obligations, we could only stay one night. My husband, young daughter and I really enjoyed our stay. Our room was Lakeheath Lodge, on the third floor, and was decorated like a rustic lodge. It has beautiful wood beams that are original to construction of the house in the 1800's. It also had a small kitchenette hidden behind a curtain. The bathroom was kind of small, but remodeled with modern conveniences. The innkeeper, Susan, was very cordial and helpful. Our daughter loved the two Goldens, Emma and Zach! They are very sweet! The breakfast was delicious. My husband has vowed to stay there each time we return to NH! It was a very relaxing and homey stay!

I have stayed at this inn several times - in the Kensington and Williamsburg rooms. It's charming and cozy. The innkeeper is helpful and friendly, as is the golden retriever. I would certainly recommend it.
