We really loved the views of the Lake from the main level screened in porch. The ability to open up the "porch dividers" and make our three rooms, one room was great. The entire group was able to sit on the porch, laugh, drink and take in the views. The Lake Inn was a very cozy and clean place to... More

What a great place to enjoy the view. Very Friendly and clean. Would stay there again..... The owners are doing a great job. Reasonably priced. If you like a small inn experience and are in the area of Mt. Sunapee stay there. It made a great weekend.

I'm normally not one for the 'motor inn' looking places, but this is a very efficient, well run, clean and solid choice for staying in the area. Views of the Lake from a screened in porch. Quiet, and very clean. No hesitations if you need a simple place to spend the night.Minutes from the Sunapee resort. Well cared for.

Thank you for your review. We have been diligently working over the past 5 years to bring this motel back to life. Most of the renovations i.e. furnace, water heater, etc. were not seen and we are just now getting to the things guests do see. Next week the install of the new draperies on the new windows will begin.... More

Immaculate room! Pet friendly, but make sure on your reservations. 2 pet rooms available. Nice owners- family run. Well maintained property with excellent view. Nearby eating establishments are great! You can tell the owners take pride in their business by the details. This place has put 90% of other places I've stayed at to shame, including the big hotel chains.

Thank you for your review. Yes, we only have 2 pet friendly rooms and reservations in advance are required unless 1 of the rooms happens to be available when you stop in. We do take pride in our rooms and strive for clean and comfort for an enjoyable stay for all. More

Our family of five stayed here for a quick overnight then skiing the next day. Proximity to Mt. Sunapee was great. The room was nice and clean, but a little crowded for five. The breakfast in the morning included homemade bread made by the owners. Just what we needed and wanted for the price.

Thank you for your review. Clean and comfortable is very important to us. Families with small children can usually fit 5 in a room, but the rooms are set up for 4 people comfortably in 2 beds. We hope you will be back. More

I visited with a last minute reservation and paid $100/night. The bed and linens were soooooo much nicer than a motel. The view of people ice fishing was perfect and the proximity to mt sunapee was ideal. The room was fine. Owners were very nice.
