“The Lake House at Ferry Point”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

As residents of Boston, it was so great to find such a tranquil place right outside the city. And we had an amazing time! Cynthia and John, the owners, are such nice folks -- he is an excellent cook and the house is lovely.

Lots to do in the area. My boyfriend and I are in our mid-twenties so we were definitely in the mood for some excitement. Some great hikes (I recommend Mount Major!) and outlet shopping. We raided the NH liquor store and enjoyed several bottles of wine on the porch, listening to John and Cynthia tell the story of how they met (ask them -- it's a riot!).

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Get the one with the two-person jacuzzi! The others are quieter but this one rocks.

The Lake House at Ferry Point in Sunbornton, NH was a pleasant stay for us. The owners John and Cindy Becker have all the right stuff to make you feel welcome and comfortable. for us, it felt like a home away from home. Since John and Cindy's relocation from Wisconsin just last November, my wife and I were surprised to find ourselves their first bed-and-breakfast guests ever.

The 10+ room B&B, under a similar name, had been run by a couple since the early 1980's. The Inn has a beautiful lake front view over more than 180 degrees with a small point of land and a swimable shorline under a well-aged Norway pine at the water's edge. Under the tree is a granite bench dedicated to someone's memory. I sat there for a time and was easily reminded about who, and therefor what, was most important in my own life.

The house has had many sound additions and renovations since around the turn of the century - when I envision it must have been built. The Beckers made some changes as well, to bring the finishes current I think. We were told that when the house changed hands many furnishings remained. What remains is pleasant and simple, except for the fireplace, which I will leave as a surprise.

Whether after a mid-life career change or early retirement, John seemed to delight in the family's new endeavor at bed-and-breakfasting. In his previous life, he was an attorney. I envisioned that many weary years of battle on the fronts of labor and management relations helped John realize his nascent talent for cooking and hospitality. Cindy's humorous stories from life as a teacher reminded us of our own fun conversation topics. We had a good time.

Yes, a pleasant stay. We hope you enjoy as well.
