Amazing. Remote with no distractions. Our room had a large soaking tub and a fireplace. Very romantic with no kids.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a very nice stay and regretted that we didn't have more time to enjoy the pool and tennis courts at the Inn. They were both in very nice condition and lovely. The breakfast was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I visited the Manor on Golden Pond for our anniversary. We were just thrilled and will go back again soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyable Romantic Weekend Getaway"
This is a great place to "get away from it all." We had a room with a jacuzzi and fireplace, so it was a perfect way to spend a quiet evening. The comfortable robes and champagne the staff left in our room didn't hurt either! Meals were good and consistent throughout our stay. The cost for the room is expensive, but we felt the luxury was there to warrant […] the price. We also loved the shaded tennis courts for a morning round. The only challenge was that restaurants, bars and shops closed very early (around 8p-9p) and we felt there were limited activities in the surrounding area. But we would recommend The Manor to friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous views, incredible complimentary breakfast"
Amazing stay. The only complaint that I have is that I didnt stay at the Manor longer. We were in town to see a concert during Laconia Bike Week and unbeknown to us most of the hotels were sold out. We had no idea what a gorgeous property we were getting when we booked so we did not spend a lot of time here but we did enjoy a wonderful breakfast the […] next morning and walked the beautiful grounds before checking out. The inn keeper was lovely and really made us feel welcomed. I cannot wait to go back for a visit with my husband when we can spend some quality time on the property.

"Relaxing Inn & Outstanding Squam Lake Area Location"
10/17/14 Beatthedrum Itasca, Illinois
Stayed here while visiting the New Hampshire/Vermont areas in Fall for an anniversary trip & great choice. The staff also very friendly. If a fan of the movie classic "On Golden Pond", this is an outstanding inn to stay to check out Squam Lake area. Our room (Avon) comfortable, roomy & great views. They have a great pub for pre-dinner drink & food selections excellent. Only negative: Bit pricey. And you have to cross a road to get to Squam Lake. But be sure to take advantage of their canoes that they make available for guests.
"Amazing lodge surrounded by spectacular views"
10/16/14 fercho29 Miami, Florida
We felt in love with this Bed & Breakfast with my wife as soon as we arrived. We were coming from a bad motel in Weirs Beach, so this was day and night. The property is located in a wonderful location, and I did not find that it was not well preserved, as some other reviewers think. I mean, it is an old mansion, surrounded by woods and lakes, in a place where snows half of the year, so it will not look as new, but we found that the old vintage style fits perfectly well. We got the Canterbury room in the second Floor, which was huge, with a King Bed (actually there were two twins together). The view from our window was awesome, you cannot ask for a nicer view of lake and mountains. We arrived when tea time was finishing, but they waited for us to serve a cup of tea and eat some finger sandwiches before they took out the service. There was an expresso machine inside the room, so we had some coffee before going for a walk to the lake. What an amazing walk! We arrive to the shores of Squam Lake right when the sun was coming down through the mountains, so it was REALLY the Golden Pond we saw in the movies. I could not stop taking pictures. The hot water for the shower was perfect, and they provide good L'Occitane soap and shampoo products, as well as a basket in the corridor with toothpaste, shaving cream and everything else, just in case you forgot something. We got dinner at their restaurant. Although it is a bit expensive, it is really worth it every penny. I am a duck lover and like to try duck every time it is available. The smoked duck I got there was one of the best I ever tried. The same for the dessert, a chocolate soufflé with caramelized cherries, it was yummy. My wife also had great food, everything was perfect. Beds were very comfortable, we slept so well that it was hard to get out the next day and leave :-) The breakfast was very tasty too, and everybody in service very polite. I got some crepes filled with sweet cream chess and pineapple, a very interesting combination. We are really planning to get back to the Manor in the future. They offer some cooking two days package, which my wife would love to do while I will be hiking the many trails around and taking thousands of pictures :-)
"Good but needs an update"
09/20/14 Tugwood London
First point to make is that although you can see the lake from the hotel, it is not actually on the lake. It is set well-back with a road in between. There is no reception as such, we just called hello and the receptionist came out from the office. She asked us in to the office to check-in which was ok. She told us where everything was and then took us to our room. We stayed in ‘Yorkshire’, a very nice room, large, with a seating area with wood-burning fireplace, Jacuzzi and separate bedroom. There were towels on the bed rolled into the shape of two loons, which was sweet. The sitting area looks out over the lawns and down to the trees around the lake. The bedroom, with comfortable bed, had the same view, but a little to the side with a better view of the lake. The only gripe was that if people were walking across the lawn or on the drive, they could see straight into the rooms. There are two tv’s but the reception is poor (no digital). However, I appreciate this is not a problem for many as you don’t really come to this area to watch tv! There is also a video player, and a CD player in the bedroom. Turndown service in the evening, and they leave you a little packet of cookies on the bed. The bathroom was nice – stand-alone shower, with L’Occitane toiletries. The Jacuzzi was between the bedroom and sitting area and worked well. The lounge area of the hotel is nice, with jigsaw puzzles, chess and books for guests. Breakfast is included in the price – cereals, fruit and a menu if you wanted something hot. We had dinner in the Restaurant, which was lovely. Excellent food and a lovely waitress (Katie). A goat cheese mousse amuse bouche started the meal, (have added some pictures of the food – it paints a thousand words!). However, the hotel itself feels a little tired. This is just cosmetic and could be righted with a few little touches. Replacing the towels in the bathrooms as they were frayed around the edges, replacing a few carpets (ours had a lot of burn marks on it from the fireplace), that sort of thing. Maybe slatted blinds in the rooms so that you can have daylight coming in, but retain your privacy. Also, I think having a carpet in the corridor would be a good idea. The wood floor looks nice but it does mean you hear everyone going past your room. Maybe consider having an i-pod dock in the room, rather than a CD player. It seems like the owners have a couple of interns from the UK each year, to either learn the trade or get some experience of running a business. This is great, they were very nice and you get a competent check-in, but you don’t get that bonhomie and welcome that you would expect from a hotel such as this. We had booked a table for dinner and within two hours of arriving we were asked by the same lady who checked us in whether we had a dinner reservation and our name! This hotel has so much going for it, but it just needs that extra bit to make it outstanding.
"Resturant Was Wonderful"
09/16/14 BETHANY D POMFRET CENTER
This lovely old inn was a wonderful treat for a evening meal! The food was outstanding, with great presentation and amazing taste! My husband I were totally happy with our meals. The dinning room is beautiful over looking the lake. The service was relaxed and very good! The food is high priced but worth every penny! We did not stay here this time but probably would. It looks like they are trying to do some work to up date the building.
"Wonderful Setting - Disappointing Hotel"
08/21/14 Marcia G Miami, Florida
This hotel is ideally situated upon a hill on an expansive grounds overlooking Squam Lake and the surrounding mountains. It has all the potential to be an exquisite and charming country getaway, but it misses the mark mostly due to neglect. One did not have to look hard for signs of deferred maintenance. The hotel and grounds only vaguely resemble the glossy photos on the website. In reality it is tired and drab and the garden is bleak and unkept. Some fresh paint and flowers would go a long way to enlivening this place. The staff for the most part were in keeping with this theme, despite sincere effort on their part. They just did not seem proud of the place. The much talked about afternoon tea was just sad and uninviting, again for lack of effort. While there were some nice antique furniture pieces, the overall sense of the decor was old and cheap rather than classic. The room even smelled old. This place is well overdue for a refresh. The saving grace was the included breakfast which offered many nice options, served in the charming and original dining area.
"Said we'd never go back but we did..."
08/12/14 tikitambu boston, MA
And I gotta tell you they have really improved. First of all the austere atmosphere is more relaxed-you can wear jeans or whatever and I think they must have found a new chef. Our dinners were excellent, the service friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere old manor resort. Drinks in the bar can be taken outside where the view is breath-taking; a table in front of the fire in the old billiard room is about as charming as you can get and the mixture of out of towers and out for a night locals lends a friendly buzz to the restaurant. It's moved from bottom to top of our list and my recommendation (this is dining only-have never stayed there but the rooms look beautiful) has changed from yikes to yippee. Not to miss it if you're up in these parts. Right on Manor.

If you are looking to celebrate your wedding anniversary, or just looking for a weekend get away. this place is absolutely ideal. YOu will not have anyone knocking at your door, the rooms are far a part, and when you go out to dinner, the room will be cleaned without any disturbance of your privacy. Each room is decorated with a different theme. Its an amazing place. The food its mouth watering.
"Romantic, Peaceful, Luxurious Inn"
07/14/14 Montrealbuddy montreal
This Manor is a beautiful Inn, upon entering the building you know that you are somewhere very special, very spacious and beautiful sitting area with amazing hardwood floors where you can sit and enjoy a magazines or photo albums by the fireplace. We were greeted by a very pleasant young englishman who was finishing an internship in hotel management and returning to England in the following days. Our room was overlooking the pond, we had a spectacular view and a nice balcony where we could sit and enjoy it all. The room was great with natural fireplace and jacuzzi and very comfortable bed. The diner and breakfast were excellent and we had great service. The employees were all very pleasant and professional. A wonderful place to stay when you are in the area of Holderness.
"Doesn't Get Much Better"
05/19/14 shuarjefe Maine
The Manor touts itself as a small luxury hotel, which it certainly is. Off season, it feels more like the perfectly run B & B. It is a lovely 1900-ish home overlooking Squam Lake. It has be exquisitely restored and maintained. Brian and Mary Ellen who own it do a terrific job. No request is too small or to difficult. They know the area and where to go. I would suggest trying to book either the Windsor or the larger Churchill rooms that have glorious views of the lake. Do try the restaurant one evening during your stay. The food is superb and the wine list excellent. It is pricey but well worth it. We have stayed at everything from nice B & B's to some of the best luxury hotels in the world. This ranks with the best we have seen. It is definitely on the "GO-BACK-TO" list.
"Amazing Service, Cozy B&B"
05/14/14 AngyB_Athens Boston, Massachusetts
We loved our stay at the Manor on Golden Pond. The rooms were very clean and the service was fantastic. There are many nice hikes near by and beautiful views of the lake. Breakfast is included and it's quite good. They also have a nice dinner menu offering that is on the high end. If you're looking for something low-key there are a couples pubs down the street. Overall, a nice relaxing experience.
