“A great place to enjoy Lake Winnipesaukee, NH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

My husband and I visit Belknap Point Motel every year at least once or twice. We love it there. It is the best view on the lake. We enjoy staying at one of the efficiency units that are right on the water. The rooms are comfortable with a small kitchens and you are so close to the lake that you can hear the water lapping on the rocks. Its peaceful and quiet and Harry and Elaine the owners are great hosts. We enjoy sitting on the beach looking at the beautiful view of the Ossipee Mountain Range and on clear days Mt. Washington. Its a great place to relax and unwind.

We had the most amazing stay at this motel. As others have said, the hotel is on two levels, one level above the road and the other right down at the lakefront. We chose an efficiency down at the lakefront and are we glad we did. As others have said, you are RIGHT down at the water and experience falling asleep with the sound of the lake lapping up against the rocks right below you.

Looking out the living room window, all you can see is "lake" as if you are on a boat. Right outside your door is a small man-made sandy beach. We watched a sailboat race and the antics of ducks from the lounge chairs on the beach.

It should be noted that if you're used to staying only at the chain motels, this is NOT a Hampton Inn. It actually was a really nice change. The rooms are small and rustic, but very clean and the shower was great. It has a real New England style about it and we loved staying here. The Blinns were great hosts and are happy to answer any questions you have about the area.

Room Tip: Here's a secret. Ask if room 8 is available. it's an end unit with kitchen right down at th...

My wife and I stayed here last summer and truly found it to be a wonderful hotel. It is right on the water with an amazing view. It is only 5 minutes from the hustle of Wiers Beach but offers you a quiet and peaceful environment. Rooms on the water offer a rustic New Hampshire experience with a small kitchen and AC. Owners are cheerful and welcoming. Great swimming.

The motel rooms have spectacular views and are open all winter. Great price, too, at about $80 per night including taxes.! Lots of good restaurants around. Great for a weekend and you can't beat the price.

The upper part is less expensive, and is on the other side of the road and is where you will go to check in regardless of where you are booked. It sits very high in elevation and has three levels, all facing the lake. And as it sits quite high, it offered great lake views from the common deck. It seemd to have very good views from at least the upper two levels, if not all three.

We chose to stay in the lower building, which consisted of only 8 or 10 units, all one story, lined in a row facing the lake. This low slung building was across the road, on the lake side. And when I say on the lake side, I mean it- it was as close to the water as one can get; you literally cannot physically get any closer to the lake without being in it!

The room was compact but had plenty of proportional space. It had a kitchette, a dining table in front of windows which faced the lake, two twin beds which we pushed together to combine into one larger bed, a clean bathroom, and a fantastic front porch that ran the legnth of the building, with chairs in front of each unit.

We chose to stay here because we wanted something quiet on the water with great lake views. This place was just ideal, and we loved it! It was cute and homey, and the views were simply fantastic.

There is a small man made beach head with sand for lounging, a floating raft to swim out to, a private dock that we took our chairs out onto to enjoy the morning sun, and a harbor entrance to the left that provided plenty of boat traffic to watch.

Please understand that this is an old timey building, and a bit rustic. But that is perfectly fitting with the lake area; it was just right for the setting.

Several people I talked to were repeat customers, and I would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Book into the lower building, it's worth the extra money. Also the two end units below had extra...

The views are beautiful . The hosts were friendly. The rooms were small but clean. I would definitely come back. The efficiency units on the waterfront have great views. I would highly recommend this place.

This was our second stay here, we love it! The place could use some updating, but the view is nothing short of wonderful! Cute and cozy room,we could have stayed for weeks! We even had an unexpected fireworks display across the lake that was great.
We will definately come again, but would like to stay longer...always great weather on the day we leave!
