I stayed 1night in Oct. My room was a large cottage. It was clean and large room. It has microwave, refrigerator, and coffee machine. It was little bit not good drain in the kitchen. Bed was clean. One problem, Room was so cold! I saw an air-conditioner, but I couldn't find a heater.

Trying to find reasonably priced lodging around the lake is challenging. We found a small cabin for $140 a night. It reminded me of the movie, Summer of 42. It was probably built in the 30's or 40's and was nice with two double beds, a kitchenette, and small bathroom. It also had a nice screened in front porch and...

My wife and I stayed at Half Moon over the Columbus Day weekend before taking a brunch cruise on the Mt Washington. The location is excellent as you can walk about 100 yards to the boat launch area. We stayed in one of the cottages and pleased overall. The inside of the cottage was a mix of new and quite...

My wife and I stayed 1 night on our annual leaf tour. Nice view of the lake from our motel room. The room was very spacious, clean and included coffee maker, fridge and microwave. Beds were very comfortable too. The shower was more than adequate (strong actually) and the only thing I would change to the bathroom would be to...

We were there over the Columbus day weekend and this was the only place available when we finally decided to take this trip. Woman at the front desk was helpful and pleasant. The cottages are older, but clean and certainly big enough. The shower was rather small, but clean. Nice sized refrigerator and could cook if you so choose to...

Very relaxing & refreshing!:) The beds could be newer & the showers & bathrooms are so small you couldn't bathe an ant in it... But the rest... Fabulous! Marvelous pool, mountain and lake view, right across from Weirs beach, Mt. Washington cruise & the railroad around the lake. Perfect location & Excellent staff!!

Last minute, one night booking. Great location - only a quick walk to taverns, beach and restaurants. A throw-back motel. Very clean, nice staff. A good place for a night or two. A good budget stop. I'm not sure I would spend a week there
