About

This gracious lake-front Inn was built in the early 1800's by the Pillsbury family as a 'summer retreat' on Lake Winnisquam. The outstanding location commands a panoramic view of the lake and mountains. Enjoy romantic moments in the gazebo or hammock or join other guests for conversation on our 60 ft front porch. The 10 guest rooms with private baths are individually decorated. You will love our comfortable ambiance, delectable breakfasts and warm hospitality.

Peace in NH

We had a wonderful night here on Veteran's day. The house has an old world charm to it with modern updates. There were so many nice touches throughout but even with the welcome gifts in the room. The bed was comfortable and the bedding was very nice. Although chilly, the front porch had a lovely view of the lake. The Owner's were very friendly. They treated you like old friends. There was coffee/Tea available all the time as well as delicious cookies. The breakfast was the best we have ever had at a bed and breakfast.


Very relaxing escape on Lake WInnesquam

3.4 on July 27, 2014

We loved the kayaks, they were awesome and gave the B&B an advantage over other Inns. The rooms being air conditioned was very much a plus! Not all of rooms say air conditioned, so unsure if they are or aren't. The rooms were very clean and the Inn generally very well kept. The breakfasts very decadent, but would have appreciated a choice or even a heads up as to menu. One day there were three courses, the next day two. The site says they have a peddle boat. We were very disappointed there seemed to be knowledge that the peddle boat was not working properly, yet it remained in the water and several guests had bailed it out and sunk shortly off shore in just this past week. " The homemade brownies, or cookies are available all day and night for your enjoyment", weren't . We found they were out for a few hours each day, but if you didn't get one by a certain hour, they were gone. We were disappointed in a four day visit, they never changed. We appreciated the owners were fairly new to the area, but the knowledge of the area seems limited. Telling us the menu book isn't up to date or unsure distance on the lake to areas you were suggesting seemed like things you should be able to share with guests. We depended more on trip adviser, yelp, and other guests. The mosquitoes were challenging to enjoy the porch evenings on a summer evening, bring bug spray!


Lakeside Elegance! Unrivalled...

5 on May 03, 2013

We stayed here in summer 2012 during our motorcycling tour of NE. We'd travelled from Europe and wanted to stay somewhere with a lake view. NOTHING prepared us for how lovely the house is, or how friendly the owners were. With tastefully decorated rooms, magnificent views of the lake, and endless coffee and home-made cookies on offer, we were reluctant to leave- so reluctant that we re-scheduled the latter part of our tour to return! John and Cindy have got the balance just right- friendly, helpful but never intrusive. Worth every cent to step back in time to a gentler age, but with all modern amenities. Try it or you'll regret it. Not today, or tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your life....


Great Lakeside Bed & Breakfast

Warm and friendly Innkeepers John and Cindy Becker and family. Beautiful spot on Lake Winnisquam. We had a chance to tour the Inn and loved the hardwood floors, warmly painted walls, lots of windows and views of mountains and the lake from all over. We heard loons as we woke up and sat beside the lake with our morning coffee watching birds and boats. We enjoyed John's great breakfast and Cindy and Libby's help in the learning about the area. We'll be back!


Lovely inn

We truly enjoyed our stay. There are beautiful viewsof the lake from most rooms. Each room is unique and lovingly cared for. John and Ciny Becker are perfect hosts and made us feel most welcome. John's breakfasts are hardy and delicious!


Great Stay.

Joe and Cindy greeted us with great friendliness and charm. They were extremely helpful and we were wecolmed with a glass of warm cider (not alcoholic). The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. We chose a lake view room and were rewarded with a beautiful sunrise over the lake in the mornings. Breakfast was delicious and sufficient to last all day, so were able to sightsee without needing to stop for food. Joe and Cindy even accepted our staying in their cosy living room all evening - we could have taken in a snack meal if needed. Highly recommended to anyone. Brian and Sue Wells, London, Old England


Fourth of July Wedding

5 on September 14, 2011

The Ferry Point House Bed and Breakfast was a great choice for us for an overnight stay on July 3rd. My husband and I were attending his nephew's wedding on July 4th in New Hampshire. Everything was just perfect. After a comfortable nights sleep and a wonderful breakfast at the Inn, we were off to celebrate a beautiful wedding. Joe and Cindy are the perfect hosts. We stayed at the Inn before this last visit and would definitely stay there again.


Home Away From Home

What a wonderful Inn. Everything was just perfect and yes, indeed, the breakfast was outstanding. We stayed for one night and the Innkeepers could not have been any nicer. The whole family was so warm and welcoming. They make you feel like you are visiting with family. We will be back again. Thanks for a job well done.
