This is a magical place, next to Kezar Lake. I stayed there on Friday night, and this was my fourth time. Denis Swords, the innkeeper, is a wizard in the kitchen, concocting all sorts of delectable treats for breakfast (and for sumptuous dinners, should you have a large enough group and request dinner..). There are paddleboats and kayaks in the... More

As youngsters, we used to come to the Follansbee Inn when the Connors owned it. 40 years later we returned and found an awesome B&B! Owner Denis is such an awesome cook as our Breakfast today include a Frittata made of leeks, goat cheese and prosciutto (yum), seasoned roasted potatoes and "better than Krispy Kreme" homemade donuts, and fresh strawberries...

Quality remains top offering at this New Hampshire Inn. One hundred years ago, my father and his parents travelled from 1915-25 to spend summers here in what began as a farm house with food supplied by adjoining farm. 40-50 visitors would come with children to swim, boat, and play . Our recent visit finds a fabulous opportunity to eat fabulous... More

This is a lovely old B&B right on small Kezar Lake. The owner Denis is more than accommodating, providing wonderful hot breakfasts and advice and directions to nearby site seeing. We took advantage of the free bikes to ride around the lake the second morning. With the leaves coming into full color it was wonderful. We liked our rooms and... More

Never thought it could happen but .... a holiday hotel/inn/B&B with no gripes or even nit-picks! Owner Denis the sort of host you always hope get, but rarely do. His individualistic breakfast dishes were superbly crafted, with option of fruit or cereals if you didn't fancy it. Room: spotless, comfortable. Bathroom: all you need, with great, easy to operate shower.... More

My wife and I decided last minute to find a stayover/ B and B when we attended a wedding last weekend. Denis was quick to respond to our request for a family suite. Price was reasonable.

It is a warm and comfortable Inn. Food is excellent. The dining room is beautiful. Bed was very comfortable and the room relaxing. Beautiful Lake. Plenty to do around the Inn. We will be going back when we can enjoy the lake. Loved our stay.

A charming casual inn on a beautiful quiet clean lake in New Hampshire. Close to New London, Lake Sunapee and many good hiking areas. Step back into a more timeless era with no room phones or tvs. Many of the rooms overlook the lake which is so calm that you can hear loons and whipporwills. Dennis Sword, the owner makes... More
