“I become nostalgic writing this”
Reviewed January 9, 2011

Stayed at Highland Lake Inn last October with Sally. Recalling that trip and writing this note makes me want to return. Pecco and Gail were so gracious and interesting, you couldn't imagine better hosts. The old house was beautiful, with just the right amount of modern upgrades to make it very comfortable without losing any of its original charm. Besides wonderful breakfasts, there was the optional dinner courtesy of Pecco, trained as a chef in Europe. Delicious, with interesting dinner companions from many distant locations. Rural New Hampshire is like another (better) planet. It was just starting to get cold, and we new the beautiful first snowfall was coming soon, but we had to leave. Highly recommended.

Gail's schedule permitted only a few, but warm moments. Pecco, on the otherhand, was not only welcoming but completely committed to our stay and chatty! He was a delight to talk to and made our stay even more pleasant -- including a perfect reservation at a solid local restaurant. The room was very comfortable highlighted by Pecco's weak spot for superior bed linens -- extremely soft and fresh! Breakfast was good -- Pecco has some chef credentials but everyone only wanted scrambled eggs, so I don't think we gave him a deserving challenge. Next time! Middle October in NH; you can imagine the color of the leaves and the inn sits at the top of a small hill on MAPLE lane -- which of course you take when you leave the inn, completely bathed in the brilliance of reds and oranges highlighted by the morning sun. Excellent. Good stop!

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing and beautiful getaway to enjoy the fall colors in NH this October, and we were really glad to have stayed at The Highland Lake Inn B&B in Andover. Pecco and Gail are charming hosts, helping us right from directions from the freeway where we were stuck on Friday evening - the alternate route was so much faster! (Bad GPS, bad bad GPS!) They also made sure we were comfortable throughout, as well as providing great tips on where to drive to see the best foliage and where to Shop! The dogs Niki and Jeter are an absolute joy, very friendly and well behaved- if you, like me, enjoy petting and playing with dogs, you are in for a treat!

Do not miss driving up the road on Maple street from the Inn for great views of the lake as well as foliage, depending on what time of year you travel. The White Mountains are a short drive away and there are hike trails to enjoy around.

We would highly recommend a stay here, and look forward to going back ourselves.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the at Highland Lake Inn. The creature comforts of accomodation and good food easily met with our approval. What impressed most though, were the endearing and lively personalities of the hosts, Gail and Pecco. Very professional, and the table conversations were always so interesting, with an added slice of humor. A wonderful vacation experience.

Thank you Pecco and Gail for a warm welcome and comfortable stay. We really felt at home from home, but with really well ironed sheets! Lovely beach and lake swimming, generous and informative hosts.

We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted with smiles and suggestions for activities around the area. But the view of the channel at Highland Lake made us abandon any thoughts of traveling around that afternoon. Instead we walked along the channel to the beach at the lake and spent a most enjoyable afternoon swimming and relaxing while enjoying the magnificent view. On our way back we were offered a glass of delicious ice tea and good conversation.
What a great experience. It is easy to just stay put at the Inn and in the immediate surroundings. The bedding makes for a very good night sleep and the inn's furnishings and art work make us feel like we were enjoying the comforts of home.

Spent 3 nights at Pecco and Gail's so my husband could get some relaxation before and after participating in the Mooseman 70.3. Nothing was too much trouble. Several other guests were staying for the same event, and Pecco was up at 4.30a.m. on Sunday to serve breakfast for the athletes and their supporters. The area is beautiful, and Pecco offered the use of his kayak to paddle in the Highland Lake just across the road from the Inn. Now if they could only guarantee the weather.....!
