“A wonderful surprise!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We were at Squam Lake for a family gathering, and this was recommended to us. We now strongly recommend it to others!!! When we first approached the inn, we thought it may be "old"....well, yes, "old", but in a very good way! It has been up-dated very tastefully and is very modern in all the comfort-factors!! It was very clean, warm, hospitable, comfortable, and welcoming. We were warmly greeted by Bill & Bonnie, yet also had the feeling of privacy! The breakfast was presented so beautifuuly , we felt very "cared-for". We particularly enjoyed the suite called "Porcupine Hollow." We would definitely like to return! It may be important to note that although the surrounding land is beautifully kept, it is not directly on the lake.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the "Porcupine Hollow".

We were going to stay in Meredith but there was a motorbike convention on so everywhere was full. Found this place and was not disappointed. Bill and Bonnie were very friendly and the breakfast was very good. The room was spacious and clean.

Brilliant stopover on our way back to Rhode Island from Canada. The name of the Inn is a definite plus for us old enough to enjoy fond memories of the famous film. Our hosts really live up to their reputation as being warm and hospitable. Lovely lounge. Many decorations thoughtfully placed around the house. The only drawback is that the Inn is not on the lakeside. The Shakers' Village (40 minutes drive) is great to visit.

We recently took a motorcycle trip into Laconia for bike week...Lucky for us that we could not find a place to stay until we came upon the Inn on Golden Pond. We have never stayed at a B&B before. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends & family. The only thing I would do is to make sure we have a room first. :)

Room Tip: Room was large and shower was nice and hot..Outstanding place to stay!!

I had a great stay at the Inn on Golden Pond this past weekend. The rooms were clean and tidy and the breakfast was out of this world. The Inn keeper Bill took an hour out of his day to talk to us about the inn.
I would highly recommend staying here if you ever find yourself in Holderness N.H.

I am currently staying at the INN ON GOLDEN POND/Holderness NH for my niece's graduation from Plymouth State. I initally booked based on Trip advisor and tour book on NH.

I am so glad I did, the INN ON GOLDEN POND is warm, cozy, friendly but most of all it is so very clean, especially the bathrooms. I came on this trip with my Aunt and cousin, he is so relaxed and we are all enjoying our stay.

The INN owners Bill and Bonnie are friendly warm and try and meet every guest's needs. Bonnie's breakfast is so scrumptious, especially her home bread, rhubard preserves and she makes the best blueberry pancakes. In the early morning before breakfast the coffee is hot and ready for any early morning guests who prefer not to sleep in.

I would highly recommend this INN to anyone who comes up to the Plymouth/Holderness/Ashland are. You will not be dissapointed.

We recently enjoyed a great stay at a perfect New England inn, the Inn on Golden Pond. The inn stikes the right balance of historic charm, yet with modern conveniences such as wifi and AC, and it Is impeccably maintained. We stayed in Owls Nest, a lovely room/small suite on the third floor. There was a nice little sitting area with tv and a few chairs, separate from the sleeping area. It was more than enough space. The bathroom was in great condition, Either recently redone or just impeccably cleaned and maintained. The grounds were very pretty and must be a great place to relax with a book on a summer afternoon.

The innkeepers, Bill and Bonnie, were fantastic. They had plenty of tips and advice in terms of sites to see, things to do, and most importantly, where to eat. What really comes through is how much they genuinely enjoy their life as innkeepers. They welcomed us almost like we were family! Make sure you try Bonnie's homemade rhubarb jam, it's the best I've ever had!

In all, it was a great stay - great location, great people, beautiful inn and room, and a reasonable rate. We can't wait to go back!
