Tom and Shannon have created a perfect retreat on Lake Winnipesaukee to bring a family, group or a number of couples. My wife and I have come to the Olde Orchard Inn for years when it was a bed and breakfast. This was the first year we rented the entire house. We had 8 couples (some with kids) come up to Lake Winnipesaukee for four nights. The bedrooms were immaculate, comfortable and cozy each with private bathrooms. It has a beautiful country kitchen with all the modern conveniences. We used the updated barn to come together and socialize as a group. The fire pit was fantastic to have a beer, make smores for the kids and catch-up with our friends. They also have a number of areas on the property inside and out to walk or read or just hang out. Our group has already booked next years trip to Lake Winnipesaukee and the Olde Orchard Inn!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A rambling 18th century farmhouse situated in an apple orchard in the New Hampshire Lakes Region, just a mile down the lane from Lake Winnipesaukee and two miles from Castle in the Clouds. Formerly a B&B, the farmhouse is now available as a whole-house vacation rental, offering over 5500 square feet of accommodation with 11 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, three dining rooms, and three living rooms. The house combines the charm of New England -- exposed brick and timbers, painted floorboards, featherdown duvets -- with mod cons such as high speed wi-fi throughout. A peaceful setting for your wedding guests, family reunion or retreat. ... more less
