The whole bridal party spent the weekend in Meredith for a wedding at Church Landing. We booked the whole inn! Brian and Lynn were unbelievably accommodating of our large group. The historic property is beautifully maintained and the rooms are extremely comfortable, clean, and updated. There were always fresh homemade cookies, snacks and drinks on hand and the breakfasts were... More

The Ballard House is in my five top B&B's of New England. Lynn and Brian made you feel like family. Breakfasts were to die for and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The scenery on the back porch is wonderfully New England. It is also a great launching point for other destinations in the area.

As a very experienced traveler, I must share my pleasant surprise about just how positive our stay at the Ballard House was this past week. Not only were our room immaculately clean, extremely comfortable and smartly appointed, but all of this paled in comparison to the effort the proprietors took to ensure visitors' every comfort. Throw in spectacular mountain and... More

We had a fantastic stay at the Ballard House in Meredith, NH. The house is a very, very well maintained period property built in 1786. It is lovingly looked after by Brian and Lynn ...the owners and proprietors. The house is beautiful, clean and wonderfully furnished .....and Lynn and Brian couldn't be nicer people or better hosts. For example, Lynn... More

Having recently sold our vacation property in Laconia, NH, my wife and I decided to revisit our old stomping grounds. We had driven by the Ballard House many times when we vacationed in the Lakes Region so we decided to give it a try. From the moment we walked in, we realized that this would be one of the best...

Two nights in NH and we chose the The Ballard House Inn an excellent decision. Owners, Lynn and Brian, are first rate inn keepers. Every detail is wonderful, from home made fresh bread, a delicious breakfast, elegant table settings to lovely decorated rooms. Evening complimentary refreshments included wine and beer, nice touch! They are friendly and helpful and very knowledgable... More

We stayed for two nights for a wedding, and could not have asked for a more perfect experience. The rooms are gorgeous, the owners are so friendly and generous, and their dog is wonderful, too. The breakfast every morning and cookie of the day were amazing. Views of the mountains and lake were breathtaking. Thanks Brian and Lynn!!

The room was excellent and incredibly clean. The breakfasts were great in terms of setting, food (amazing) and congeniality. The 24/7 access to snacks was unusually generous and the fresh baked goods were an added bonus. The location is great and accessible to everything in the area. And if you need information on anything, Brian and Lynn will let you... More

Wonderful BnB with gracious hosts, comfy beds, delicious breakfast, and a gorgeous view. The hosts are more than happy to help with everything. I traveled with my mother, but it would be ideal for couples. Highly recommended :) :) :) :) :) :)
