We just had our daughter's wedding at the Inn and it was fabulous! We could not have asked for anything better. The view is to die for and the accomodations were wonderful. We had the whole place to ourselves and the staff was very attentive and we never wanted for anything. Breakfast was delicious. Atmosphere is cozy. I would highly recommend Dexter's Inn for a wedding or any other occasion! Going to find time to visit again next summer to relax and take in that breathtaking view!

Although the inn is in a beautiful setting, it is in need of a good facelift and cleaning... there were spider webs everywhere. From the entrance area which was dark and dingsy, to the dining room where the dark vinyl table clothes felt like we were at a take out resturaunt. The overgrown shrubs blocked the view of the mountains at breakfast and the fruit salad was not fresh and was served both days. Our bathroom tub seemed to have dryed spilled paint in it and the bedspread was soiled with face makeup.

Dexter's Inn has a beautiful location on top of a hill overlooking the lake. The grounds are lovely and there are trails through the woods for walking. The gardens are really pretty too. The service was excellent. John was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The room was large, comfortable and clean. We just wish we had time to enjoy another night on our tour of New England.

We greatly enjoyed our stay. John and his crew are terrific hosts and there are ample opportunities just to sit back and relax in a beautiful setting. Breakfast is terrific.

I was not disappointed - at all. A perfectly lovely location, comfortable room, excellent breakfasts to begin each day - I recommend the fantastic blueberry pancakes. Just the right amount of activities-nice pool, tennis, and playing shuffelboard is great fun. Many trails to hike. A perfect vacation for our family of 12 to relax and loosen -up and have fun together. Leigh J. Luedtke

My family had a family vaca at Dexter's Inn this past week. It was perfect for all ages. The kids and adults played tennis, croquet, shuffleboard. The breakfasts are divine. Order the blueberry pancakes if you're there when Blueberries are in season. John, the innkeeper is extremely accomodating. Beautiful grounds. I may go back this winter for cross country skiing!

We just got home from a week at Dexter's Inn. Our first Family Reunion! It was absolutely the perfect place for all of us. There were 12 of us - 8 adults and 4 children. We rented the large 2 bedroom house which is where the "families" with children stayed. It became our central gathering and eating place! We grilled everyday, sandwiched and salads for lunch, dined outside on the tables and chairs provided and enjoyed wine and company. We rented three of the smaller rooms in the buiilding with the gameroom barn. We only left Dexter's two times in a week! We enjoyed the lake dinner cruise and also late night ice cream downtown. The breakfast every morning was a highlight! Rolph is a fabulous cook and server and has a great personality. We looked forward to him every morning as well as our blueberry pancakes et al. !!! John was a very good host - never hovered but always there when we needed a sewing kit, map, large serving bowls and utensils from the Inn's kitchen! The pool, tennis courts, shuffle board, croquet, hiking trails and gardens were wonderful. The reading room in the main Inn had alot of great books if that's what you're into. The complimentary soaps and bathsalts and lotion were really high quality...that reminds me...I want to contact John and get some more! We met another couple with thir son from Switzerland and invited them to eat with us. Much fun. Then an older retired English Professor from Mass. joined us with his bottle of bourbon one night for cocktails! Everyone in our group enjoyed the entire stay and everything that Dexter's had to offer. We hope to go again. It was a true vacation...and a true joy. (if you're looking for high speed internet connection - forget about it! - but we didn't miss it a bit)

Beautiful view of the mountains. Close to the serenity of Sunapee. Huge grounds at the Inn. Terrific food, especially seafood. Very old, private chapel on site (ask for the key, it's worth a visit).
