From the moment we arrived at the Inn at Pleasant Lake until the moment we left we felt at peace. The property is beautiful and well maintained, the scenery is magical and the experience provided by an attentive staff, gracious host(s) and first class chef was memorable. The rooms are surprisingly large for an Inn with historical pravenance dating back...

This was our second time at the Inn at Pleasant Lake and new owners Jennifer & Scott Reid have managed to retain everything that makes this New Hampshire's preeminent country inn while adding their own personable, comfortable style. New chef, Bryan Leary, had some big shoes to fill but proved to us that he is every bit as capable as...

My son and I went on a bonding trip...a road trip during the holidays and visited The Inn @ Pleasant Lake to spend a day there.

We had heard great things about the Inn from people who knew the restaurant. The Inn was very welcoming - great people as other reviews say - but the room was pretty disappointing in many ways.

Thank you for your feedback. We are so disappointed that you did not thoroughly enjoy your stay with us and hope that we might have the opportunity to provide a better experience in the future.

I stayed at the Inn for a business trip, but I will definitely be back with my husband for a long weekend during the summer months. This Inn is so quaint and the hospitality is exceptional.

We can't wait to welcome you back too! You certainly had a well timed visit to catch the incredible fall foliage this season. Great that you had the opportunity to enjoy our dining experience as well. As you noted, Chef Bryan puts a tremendous effort into creating a very unique dining experience based on fresh sourced ingredients.

My girlfriend and I recently spent a Saturday night at the inn and we were blown away. The owners were incredibly friendly and accommodating.

Absolutely beautiful Inn- despite rain and cloudy weather, we were lucky enough to have a wonderful hostess, a sneak peak of the mountain over the gorgeous lake, luxurious night sleep, and a delicious breakfast. Can't say enough how well kept and beautiful the property is... and all the little treasures inside to keep you busy if the weather doesn't cooperate!
