Cindy and Steve are wonderful hosts! Their small business is run from the heart. This "motel" has the feel of a bed and breakfast, with more privacy! For 4 days, The Lake Inn felt like home. From our first contact, the Peterson's were friendly, helpful and accommodating. The hotel is quiet and well situated on the lake with views that...

Visited area with my mom for a pre reunion visit to her college, Colby - sawyer! Very quaint motel that feels like B&B. The owners were so nice, rooms clean and the lake views were great. This was a great location for fall leaf drives. Thanks to Steve and family for a great stay!

The Inn is cozy, quiet and quaint with a spectacular view of Lake Sunapee. The room was small, clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the screened in porch with chairs and table. I often sat out there to eat lunch and just relax.I really liked the king size bed with those big, fluffy body pillows. The room also had a small...

Great view of lake sunapee! There was a nice balcony, but there was a mosquito net which made it a bit hard to take photos from the room. You can go down to the fire pit and see the view as well. Room had a comfy king sized bed, HD tv, microwave and mini fridge. Fridge didn't appear to work...

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...

Thank you for your review. Your wife's reaction is not uncommon; many guests are unsure when first approaching the property. But that old saying "don't judge a book by its cover" is true for our property. Once inside the rooms are clean and comfortable and the view is unbeatable. Thank you again for your review.

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...

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...
