Wonderful hosts - wonderful Inn

4.2 on November 08, 2014

We spent 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The Inn was the perfect base for us to visit the area. Close to everything but in a quiet place. We stayed in the Sunapee Room but for sure every room is just as comfy and clean. Breakfast was delicious and the room has a big window with a great view - just as sitting at the back porch. It was fun to chat with the other guests in the familiar atmosphere. Brian keeps the property and your laugh muscles in good condition. Lynn has cookies and other sweet and salty nibbles ready for you all day and night. The coffeemaker and the well-stocked fridge with sodas, beer, water and wine are very convenient. Brian and Lynn are not just good hosts, they are outstanding, with a good sense of humor and full of suggestions for activities and restaurants. They’ve made us feel so welcome and we absolutely recommend this lovely Inn.


Simply Amazing!

The Ballard House Inn is simply amazing. Brian and Lynn were destined to be innkeepers and will not disappoint! From the moment I called the Inn to the time we parted ways, we were treated with the highest level of hospitality. The Inn itself is incredibly beautiful, well-cared for and exceptionally clean. You will not find a better place to stay and I encourage you to look no further. We cannot wait to go back! Thank you Lynn and Brian! You two are simply amazing!


Great place with great people

This was our first experience at a bed and breakfast. I must say that Brian and Lynn really set the bar high. From the moment we arrived and they greeted us on the front porch we felt like we were visiting old friends. They were genuinely concerned with us having a good time, not just at their inn but during our entire visit, and were more than willing to share their knowledge of the region and dinning suggestions. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. We were in NH to enjoy the fall color, and the views from our room and the breakfast table were some of the best views we saw the entire time we were in NH. Hanging out with Newton (the gentle giant) on the porch swing out back while we enjoyed a beer or a glass of wine at sunset was about as relaxing as you an get. We're from Arkansas and another couple we met from Georgia may have put it best. They simply said "southern hospitality is alive here" Thanks Brian and Lynn. We look forward to visiting again Nathan and Hilary


Autumn Perfection

Brian and Lynn were the most outgoing hosts . They were always ready to assist us with our needs and travel advise. The home is beautiful, and detailed care to keep it in clean and feel like you are home. The views are unsurpassed over the rolling yard ,seeing the trees in their glorious Fall colors. Breakfast was most a beautiful presentation with breads , juice, and breakfast entrees. We hope to return.


EXCEPTIONAL! The Ballard House Inn

5 on September 29, 2014

I stayed at The Ballard House Inn while on business. I stay in hotels and felt i needed a night of homey comfort. I received more than what I expected. My hosts Lynn and Brian made me feel like this was my home. The accommodations were very clean and very nice and tastefully decorated - I felt at home. In the morning Lynn and Brian prepared a very delicious two-course breakfast. It was a definite departure from the typical hotel and certainly a bed and breakfast that is worth going back to!


Anniversary trip

Brian and Lynn made us feel right at home, a very nice couple, who go above and beyond to provide extras not found at other B&B's.


Great view.

Traffic was particularly noisy and we are not used to a soft bed. Wonderful dinner recommendation, very helpful with our continued travels.


Review of Ballard House Stay Week of September 7th, 2014

This was a quaint bed and breakfast. The entire facility was clean and inviting. Brian and Lynn were very nice and offered good suggestions for local attractions. The breakfasts were fantastic! Will recommend to friends and family.


Best B&B Experience Ever!

5 on September 11, 2014

Lynn and Brian exude hospitality -- they are charming, witty, caring and attentive. The House itself is a history lesson you can sleep in -- with a view that alone is worth the price of admission. Everything was immaculate -- obviously the result of a great attention to detail. Snacks and drinks are ever-present, and the breakfast was wonderful and relaxed --and I noticed that they cater to all of their guests 21st century dietary requirements. Let them direct you to nearby Rattlesnake Mountain. A 20-30 minute hike will give you a view that just may make you decide to settle down in New Hampshire.
