This is a difficult review I have to deal with. On one hand, its located off the beaten path and driving to it at night could be difficult. Once we reached there, we found five old and unimpressive rooms in a row that will not score anything over 2 stars. My wife simply exploded at the parking lot and questioned...

It was clean and comfortable for three people and our dog. The views were nice. One night we ate dinner at the picnic benches overlooking the lake. It was a perfect setting. The owners were very nice and very helpful. We would definitely stay again, we felt at home.

It's not a fancy place to stay, but it's very quaint and charming, and the rooms have a lovely screened- in porch that overlooks the lake. The owners were friendly and helpful when I asked about restaurants in the area. They also were very accommodating when I requested an extra hour for check-out.

Clean and up to date. I've been in lots of places and this, for a motel, is excellent. Close to the state beach, where we swam and cooled off. Close to Sunapee harbor and with a restaurant in walking distance. Room was cool when we walked in (it was very hot outside) which was welcome. Outside screened in private porch...

Thank you for your review. Our aim is for our rooms to be clean and comfortable so our guests are relaxed and happy. We do realize that the bathrooms and bathtubs are in need of work. That is on the list to begin in the fall. We hope you will stay again.

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...

Thank you for your review. Our goal is to have rooms that are clean and comfortable so you can enjoy your time away from home. We have been consistently working since we bought the Inn 5 years ago to improve the guest experience and we appreciate you noticing our efforts. We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks again.

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....

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.

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.

Stayed on a Thursday night mid February with a friend for a two day ski trip. Husband/wife owners live on site and are very attentive. The location is so close to Mt.
