Beautiful cruise on a really beautiful lake. In spite of its name (which should be the title of a Bill Murray movie) it's sports some fantastic views. And the boat itself, what a beautiful old girl. Friendly staff.

Took the train tour from Meredith ( bonus free parking ) didn't have it but they offer a "hobo lunch" $12 the people who did seemed to like it also a guy on the train making balloon animals for the kids. Went around the lake and telling us about it bringing us to Weirs beach to board the Mount Washington,... More

Since moving to the lakes region we have made an annual trip around the lake on the M/S Mount Washington. The Scenery is wonderful and we enjoy seeing the islands, sailboats and people on the lake. Crew is very friendly and accommodating.

We enjoyed our ride on the boat a lot, the views of the homes are amazing and then you dock in Wolfeboro and can get a glimpse of the town there. The ride was around 2 or 2.5 hours and very nice.

We very much enjoyed the prime rib buffet offered during our evening cruise. $55 pp was reasonable for a great evening. There was entertainment on two levels. We settled in the lower level and danced the night away to live rock and roll music played by a great band!

It was raining hard when we got up so our expectations were low as to how much we would enjoy the experience. However, the rain stopped and the food on the boat was good so by the time we were ready to go outside the sun was on it's way out. We had a lovely time, being nosey at beachside... More

What a great way to experience the lake! The food was average, but the mimosas were good. You get to see amazing homes that you wouldn't be able to see otherwise. I feel it was definitely worth the money.

A classic experience on a grand ship with much history, excellent way to see large portions of Lake Winnipesauke,. There is a limited amount of narration to highlight points of interest The "cottages" on Governor's Island are magnificent. The ship sails very smoothly over the water, nice way to get respite from a hot summer day. Food on board is... More

The food was great. The bands were great. The cruise relaxing, but a bit tame. Hardly knew I was moving, and, unless I looked out at the tree-lined shore, had no sensation of going anywhere. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Probably a bit expensive for dinner and music, but, heck, it was the fourth of July, and they... More
