My wife and I spent a night at the Inn on Golden Pond on a trip to see family in New England. We stayed one night and absolutely adored the place. The home is beautiful, tucked away in the woods. The rooms are spacious and inviting. Bill and Bonnie were exceptional hosts who made us feel welcome throughout our stay.... More

We actually stayed in August. Such a nice place all around. Super friendly owners, great breakfast, nice common space, ample and quiet rooms, good location, you don't have to eat with others unless you'd want.to, not stuffy like one of the more "luxurious" inns where we stayed nearby the year prior. Had planned to return in 2016 but had to... More

When we arrived on Friday, we were welcomed by innkeeper, Bill Webb, and shown to our room, The Rabbit Hole. The room was just what we were looking for, cozy and comfortable. Breakfast was made each morning by Bill's wife, Bonnie, and we enjoyed... More

Bonnie was a great hostess. Bill was rarely seen. The B & B seems worn and old - needing an upgrade. The breakfast was one of worst we have had at an B & B. It is buffet style with boxes of cereals. The coffee was absolutely awful. For these prices you expect a much better breakfast. It is centrally... More

Legendary radio commentator Paul Harvey was famous for telling “the rest of the story.” It seems like a fitting moment to emulate Mr. Harvey. Only twice in our 32 year innkeeping career have we needed to knock on a guest’s door late in the evening to ask them to lower their voices because their volume was so loud that they... More

Our host Bonnie and Bill were wonderful offering many insights to the area, like the covered bridge down the road. The Inn on Golden Pond is a charming B&B, very welcoming and comfortable home. We enjoyed exploring the trail behind the house and leaf peeping. Coming back from dinner we experienced the warm and comfort of the living room as... More

Very welcoming, homely, clean and comfortable. An ideal base from which to explore the Squam Lake area. Bill and Bonnie are excellent hosts and more than happy to provide very useful information and insights to travellers new to the area. Highly recommended.
