Stayed for a long weekend at the end of September and it was fabulous. The bar, dining and entertainment option still available at the end of the season were awesome. Walking distance to Weir's Beach also a plus. Nearby State parks and glass museum to visit. Can't wait to go b

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
We stayed here for one night while on a road trip. The room had a small private balcony that overlooked the lake, long beach as well as marina. I suspect it could be noisy “in season” but we enjoyed a quiet evening. The room was immaculate, bed comfortable, bathroom roomy and to

First off, the pictures of the resort are very misleading, as it appears the accommodations are on the lake. We were put in a room in a building across the street from the lake, and although it had a balcony with a view of the lake, there was a busy highway between. Additionally,

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize if you felt that our pictures are misleading. The resort is on both sides of the road and if a request is made to stay on the lake side of the resort we will do our best to fulfill it. We do apologize for the disturbance in the night and unfortunately the whole state is dealing with the same issue. We have been working steadily to improve all of the resort a little at a time and appreciate your feedback about the conditions of your room. We are very happy to hear that you took advantage of the opportunity to dine in the Blue Bistro. We do hope you will stay with us again and please be sure to request a room on the lake side of the resort! In the Spirit of Hospitality, Cynthia Makris Owner NASWA Resort and Restaurants

The hotel staff was amazing and even upgraded our room for mine and my husband’s wedding anniversary. The view was amazing and the accommodations were on point. Best place I’ve ever stayed in Laconia, NH!

How dog friendly is the Naswa? Are they allowed to swim in the lake as long as we keep them off the beach area? Are there any dog friendly outdoor restaurants close by where you can bring your pet? Planning a trip in two weeks so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Hello, Thank you for contacting The NASWA Resort. We are a pet-friendly resort with select units that accommodate dogs. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed at the beach or in the swim areas. As for the outside dining with your dog, I would suggest checking with The Boardwalk Bar & Grill, or Harts Turkey Farm. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Hello, thinking of booking for a mid week trip. Any suggestions on a cottage versus a motel room on the water for two adults Leaning towards the cottage, never stayed here before but great reviews and property looks very inviting !
Hello, Thank you for contacting The NASWA Resort. Our cottages and beachfront rooms are very popular. Depending on the dates, we may have a one-room cottage with a queen bed, screened in porch with a view of the lake. Please phone reservations, so we may better assist you with your stay. We look forward to speaking with you soon!
