great location by the lake. The rooms needs some TLC, the room furniture and decoration are old. The bathroom is small and not cleaned to high standard. You can hear the footsteps of your neighbours. Over whole it is good escape place if you don't have high expectations.
the place has small private beach which is great.

Room Tip: there are rooms on the lake, ask for these ones and not the main building

We stayed here on the way to the White Mts.Based on the glowing reviews, were we disapointed. We only saw the owner at check in. They are closed until check out at 10:00 a.m. We stayed in a room on the hill as the water rooms were booked. The photos on the web site make it look like the hill rooms are right behind the water rooms. They are not. There is a looong road to drive to get to the water. The rooms are tiny, beds, about 100 years old, no coffee, and a teeeny bathroom.Have to agree with the post about spiders. Webs were in and out of the room. Views were quite nice, but probably wouldn't return

My boyfriend and I had been looking for a place to call our home away from home on the lake and we found it at the Belknap Point Motel. It was our first vacation together in six years and it was absolutely fabulous. If you are looking for a relaxing time away from all the noise (it is very quiet!) but still just a 10 minute drive to Weirs Beach, and the shops in Meredith definitely give the Belknap a try. The pictures online do not do it justice. The views are stunning, the beach is small but perfect since it is never crowded and the rooms are cozy. We stayed in the motel the first two nights which was nice a quiet and then moved to an efficiency unit for the last few days (they were full the first two nights). The efficiency units are so close to the water you will feel like you are looking out the window of a cruise ship! The owners, Harry and Elaine were two of the nicest people we have met and were more than accommodating, they went above and beyond for us. We love it and look forward to staying again next Summer! This is a perfect place for busy couples looking to relax, I am sad we had to leave!

I wanted to take my boyfriend to Lake Winnipesaukee for his birthday but was on a tight budget. I read about the Belknap Point Motel on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try-- I'm so glad we did! It is certainly a no-frills motel, but the rooms were perfectly clean, the folks that run the motel are extremely kind and helpful (they referred us to a great restaurant for dinner), and the view cannot be beat. If you're looking for a luxurious stay I would recommend looking elsewhere, but the Belknap Point Motel offers far more than the price would indicate.

My wife and I have just completed our 4th. annual mini vacation at Belknap Point. We are both in the tourist related industry on Cape Cod and after dealing with the entitled ?
all summer we look forward to our Labor Day vacation with Harry and Elaine at Belknap Point. We return each year because we find peace and relaxation on the shores of the
BIG lake. I am a big person and find the accomodations of the units easy to get around in and they are clean and comfortable. Belknap's location offers easy and enjoyable trips
to most locations and as we have found ,many fine restaurants in the area add to the
total enjoyment. We would not return if we found accomodations to be not clean or
the owners not hospitable. Harry and Elaine are gracioius hosts and be assured we will
be back next year, same time same location.

Truly a beautiful place to spend 2 weeks of our summer vacation. We have been constant visitors to BPM and have never been disappointed with its beauty and quietness. Where else can one look across a beautiful lake and see Mt. Washington 65 miles away. The Blinns have always been warm and welconing to my wife and I. They consistently provide us a clean and welcoming residence for our 2 week vacation. It's location is nicely out of the hustle/bustle of downtown, yet is very close to some of the finest restaurants and shopping. The Blinns are very responsive to the needs of their residents and have proven that for the many years we have been their guests.

A warm relaxing place to enjoy, and take in the beauty of the lake and mountains right outside your room.
