A diamond of a find

4.6 on March 01, 2015

We had an exceptional experience at the Ballard House Inn. Lynn and Brian are attentive and thoughtful hosts. The Inn is immaculate. Bedding is melt in your mouth comfy, and no there is no stone left unturned in conveniences. Highly recommend.


Wonderful visit from Beijing

Brian and Lynn have done, and are doing, an amazing thing with this beautiful home. There hospitality and graciousness is warm and engaging. The breakfasts they serve are fantastic! Their dog Newton is, as any visitor will see, the size of a small lion. While I am very familiar with the Winnipesaukee area, this was my first time in a B & B there. I hope to stay there again in the future.


Fabulous B&B

4.8 on February 09, 2015

We can't say enough good things about our 2 day stay at The Ballard House. From the warm welcome, the beautifully appointed and immaculate rooms, the mountain views to the inviting common rooms. Brian and Lynn are fabulous hosts and full of local knowledge. We would highly recommend the inn and hopefully will be back for another stay in the near future.


A Romantic Getaway

5 on January 24, 2015

The Ballard House Inn was so far the best B&B we have stayed in to date. The hosts were gracious and professional. We lacked nothing and they made sure we were well fed and comfortable our entire stay. We highly recommend the Ballard House Inn for anyone looking for the very best in hospitality and ambience.


Ballard House Excels

We love to stay in this lovely and convenient guest home. Lynn and Brian offer a beautiful property. It is immaculate, warm and inviting. And don't get me started about the tasty breakfasts! Comfortable beds, nice linens and daily amenities will make you feel as welcome as you are!


Wonderful friendly hosts

5 on January 01, 2015

Can't recommend enough. Lynn and Brian were so welcoming and we were probably spoilt a little being the only guests at the time. The house is beautifully kept and Brian will charm you with his facts about the house and it's history. Breakfast was exceptional - above and beyond what you might expect from a B&B. We wish we could have stayed longer than one night, not only to enjoy the area but to spend more time at Ballard House Inn


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!

5 on October 31, 2014

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

5 on October 15, 2014

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

4.8 on October 14, 2014

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.
