Good - as stated great location with a lakeside gazebo and seemed to be clean. Cons: Not a B&B - Bed but no breakfast - but I knew that when I booked. At check in Bob the owner seemed like he had other more pressing things to attend to rather than us. No interest in what we were doing or...

My adult daughter and I spent 2 nights here while attending performances in nearby Meredith where my son was performing with Interlakes Theater. It was perfect for us! The inn is charming, the room clean& comfy and the innkeepers lovely! We enjoyed a take out dinner on the dock and the day lakeside watching the boats pass by. Nothing better...

My husband and I came to the lovely lake area to see the Dave Matthews Band at nearby Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion and came a few days early to make a mini vacation of the visit. The Inn at Smith Cove was perfect! Beautifully situated on the lake with its own little beach area and gazebo. The property is...

We are frequent guests at the Inn and it is wonderful. The inn is clean the grounds are well maintained. The beaches are great, plenty of room to dig in the sand or float on a raft. The inn keepers Bob and Maria treat you like your family, and the staff could not be more friendly. The location is perfect...

We stayed in the DeFalco room for 4 nights. This room is small, but has all the necessities-bathroom, air conditioner, tv, wifi. It was spotless which is important to me. Big fluffy towels each day and beautiful views of the cove. Coffee is provided in the morning as well as some pastries. The owners, Bob and Maria, are on site...

We enjoyed our weekend stay here as a last minute get away from the city heat. Our room which was #1, was plenty big and very clean. The linens were spotless and fresh, and the bath towels nice and fluffy. Bathroom was clean and tiny. The mattress in this room really should be replaced. It is very squeaky and every...

The inn itself was beautiful and well kept. Because of the view that was so breathtaking, you could feel yourself relaxing within minutes of arriving. There were so many great places to sit outside including a small private beach. The innkeepers were very friendly and did everything to make your stay great. Many wonderful places to eat and a few...

As you take the winding road down into the cove where the Inn is located, you'll realize that you're in a quiet, secluded location. The Inn is a lovely place to enjoy your stay on Lake Winnipesaukee. Your hosts, Bob and Maria, are a friendly and FUN pair. They welcome you as though you are guests to their home (which...

The inn is located right on Smith Cove on New Hampshire's best lake, Lake Winnipesaukee. It is peaceful, quiet, and exceptionally clean. I particularly enjoy sitting on the gazebo (located right over the lake) and enjoying the evening breeze. The innkeepers are always very friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make you feel at home. While...

Lovely Victorian guest house sitting right onthe edge of the lake. So peaceful sitting in the gazebo watching the boats go slowly by. The room was nicely decorated and spotless. However disappointed at poor provision of breakfast (a piece of cake and a coffee out of a thermos in a polystyrene cup!) and it would have been nice to have...
