Glad I read the reviews on this website because that is why I chose Fireside. The price was right and the readers' comments convinced me. It is a beautiful venue with large rooms and a very friendly staff. They provided the best Continental breakfast I had during our week-long foliage tour------lots of choices! Located only 7 miles from Weirs Beach so it is an ideal place to stay if you want to take the lake cruise. Weirs Beach did not seem very attractive for anyone over 25! If you book here and choose a second floor room, you will have a nice balcony on which to relax.
While I probably won't be doing another foliage tour in the near future, I will certainly be staying at Fireside when I do.

My husband, 2 children ( 12,10) and I were looking for a place to stay for one night over Labor Day weekend. We called Fireside on Saturday morning, and they said they could accommodate us and that our room would be waiting when we arrived ( even if before check-in time). We reserved a King Suite.
Upon arrival, noted that the grounds are very well-kept. Friendly check-in staff, and who doesn't love a free Whoppie Pie! This Inn is located on a fairly busy intersection ( busy by NH standards...), but we never heard any traffic noise. We did note that there was a path down to the Lake ( and staff told us there is a beach, but it is not staffed by a lifeguard)- we never made it down to check it out, as our stay was only 24 hours.
Room was more than adequate for 4 people. We did bring along an air mattress, and there was PLENTY of space to set it up. Everything was clean, and we had a first level room which made access in/out super easy.
Patrick's Pub, across the street is a great spot- we have been a few times through the years.
We did not take advantage of the complimentary breakfast, other than grabbing some quick juice, but it seemed more than a standard Continental Breakfast.
Oh, how could I forget- the pool and the fountain soda machine- those were our kids favorites!
Overall, great, well-kept resort. Looking forward to coming back in the winter for a quick weekend at Gunstock!

Pet friendly :) Treated my dog awesome. Gave me a dog bowl with woofie pies which look like mini whoopie pies,which they give to humans on check in too.Pool was warm,jacuzzi has a waterfall,most places deliver there and it is close to everything.Very clean rooms and a nice free breakfast too. Definitely staying again and as a matter of fact I got a room for 2 nights on their site cheaper than any other "discount travel sites" which I checked them first.

Hi my family and have come here 1-2 times a year for the last 10 years . Man are they always consistent. The pool and grounds are always manicured like a golf course , very relaxing. This place has 2 outdoor gas grills for your use. Nothing like steak tips and a beer after a long day. They have a awesome continental breakfast which served warm and hearty pancakes and waffles. My kids really dig this every year. They have a relaxing hot tub and 2 nice pool with the indoor heated to comfortable temp. Candy and Lydia made my morning with their nice personality s and hard work to please The front desk also was very helpfull with my questions. Like Cheryl and all of them are sweethearts and professional. Please stay there you will not go wrong. My only complaint is that the pullout couch in the suite can be uncomfortable. But most are. Thanks again fireside inn you are truly committed to excellence.

Once Again Another Great Vacation !!!!! I just got back from a 2 week stay at the Fireside Inn. Their has been significant up grades thru out the years and more to come all for the good of the customer. I am a repeat Customer to this Resort For the following reasons the Resort has a very friendly atmosphere and a lot to offer. Indoor & outdoor pool breakfast,every morning, popcorn and soda everyday all you want no charge. I had the pleasure of meeting Ray Head of Maintenance always stop to say Hi and see how my day was going... thanks Ray. Also like to mention the cleaning ladies Candy & Molly and others every morning ask me if I needed anything .... With a smile :) thanks. There are others I just don't know everyone name sorry about that. Thumbs up to the front desk always helpful. Thanks ! I have also talk with the General Manger Frank Tuscano very helpful explaining what taking place now and what they are going to do in the future. Overall I find this a Great place to stay centrally located near everything. I will be returning again next year.

I stayed for one night July 26, 2013 to attend a concert. I called to confirm my reservation a few days prior to my stay I wish I gotten the name of the lady I spoke to on the phone she was very helpful and cheerful.She took the time to answer all my questions. The same lady checked me in. She was very dedicated and focused on creating overall guest satisfaction. The lobby area was beautiful stone fireplace and seating area. The indoor pool was glassed in and looked well cared for. My room was on second floor upon entering the room it had everything I needed. a small fridge, a microwave, a/c unit. Furniture was well cared for and it even had a fireplace in the room. The balcony was fabulous had 2 chairs to sit and it overlooked the outdoor pool which was mighty inviting. The grounds were well cared for. It was awesome!!! I could walk to the concert. It doesn't take long to walk to the concert but, once on concert grounds it does seem like a hike. Overall this is the place to stay for any reason lots of natural beauty..I loved it and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms that overlook outside pool area are the best!
