This B&B is in SUCH a pretty, peaceful setting, and the B&B itself is SO lovely! Loved the drive getting to it, as well, as it's very much up in the mountains. The room was INCREDIBLE..large and very well done...in all the places we stayed, NO one had a room as nice as this place did. I could have stayed there a week, it was SO nice and comfortable!! The hosts were also very hospitable...we greatly enjoyed visiting with them. The only two things that could have been better about the place were: 1) We were given for the main course at breakfast, a choice between blueberry pancakes, or scrambled eggs and bacon. The other places we stayed at served several main entrees, so we were a bit surprised we had to choose just one. So while the food was delicious, it was limited compared to other places. 2) Around 10 pm or so, they put their tea bags and hot water container up from downstairs...the other places we stayed at, left such out all night, so that a person could have hot tea or hot instant coffee anytime in the evening. So that part was a bit disappointing, as I was still wanting tea in the evening, and we found everything had been removed for the night. Other than that, the place was not lacking in anything, and we definitely want to go back there, and for a longer time, as well. Overall, this B&B was 5 star!

Inn on Golden Pond Elegant, well maintained, Inn near Little Squam Lake This was a difficult review to write. The inn is extremely well kept and very comfortable. Not quite on the lake it is only a couple of minutes away. We had the Mallard’s Cove room which was very nice indeed, and in fact one of the few inns to provide two comfortable chairs in the room. The surrounding area is very beautiful with great mountain drives and stunning lakes all within easy reach. We have stayed in very many quality B&Bs both in the USA and at home in England. This was the first ever occasion that we did not get on with the owners. First the hot drinks machine was being put away in the evening when we had not yet got our coffees. No problem except that when I joked with Bill that he could not put it away yet I was told in no uncertain terms that he was the boss round here! (I don’t think he was joking). Next morning I was told off for taking tea mugs from the cupboard instead of from the breakfast tables. Bonny said “..if everyone took mugs there wouldn’t be enough to go around..” !! Bonny.....get more mugs. It didn’t seem to get any better...my wife was told off for taking milk at breakfast from one container rather than the other. Both contained the same kind of milk but clearly there were rules to be obeyed. I won’t even go into the Spanish Inquistion about who left the dirty breakfast plate on the side table! All very odd because we have never come across this style before in a B&B and the many five star ratings suggest that no-else either notices. Bryan and Ann D UK

The place was so beautiful and very clean. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We had a room w/ a jaccuzi and fireplace which really made the vacation. It was a very cold weekend. The place was so charming. The food was great too. can't wait to go back!!

Husband and I stayed for only one night...on the way to Maine. The hosts were so nice and friendly. It was a cozy, warm and hospitable stay. Sat and talked with other guests and the hosts during breakfast the next morning...which was yummy. In a pretty location and away from the big cities. Highly recommend it to all going to that area.

The innkeepers could not make you feel more at home. A puzzle by the fire and chatting with friends to break up the dreary winter.

My husband and I have been repeat guests at Inn on Golden Pond for the past 5 years. Our love of New Hampshire coupled with the friendship of the innkeepers Bonnie and Bill and other repeat guests, who have become friends, keep us coming back to this specific Inn. The Inn is centrally located so the mountain, lake and outlet shopping areas are within an easy 1 hour drive. We have stayed in almost every room the Inn has to offer and each one has its own unique decor and comforts. Rooms facing the backyard offer a more quiet atmosphere without the occasional traffic noise as well as the opportunity to catch a glimpse of deer or moose. This Inn offers special seasonal getaway packages such as candlelight dinners in March, Valentines Day weekend in February and our favorite, New Years Eve. Bonnie loves to make scrumptous desserts for New Years Eve for all to enjoy capped off with a Champagne Toast at Midnight. Bonnie and Bill treat guests like old friends and family members and offer recommendations for the best seasonal activites their area has to offer. One of the favorite features is the puzzle table. Many friendships are made building the puzzles together. Having stayed in other Bed and Breakfasts in New Hampshire, we always recommend this one to friends, family and acquaintances.
