We found this via the internet. great surprise. When we drove up front, the Christmas tree was lit, fireplace was aglow, it looked so inviting, when we walked in you could smell the popcorn. The stall was great, everyone was so friendly .Can not wait to go their again. Rooms were very clean and breakfast was an added treat. We didn't use the pool but looked very inviting,
Thank you for great memories

We landed at the Laconia NH airport ahead of schedule due to weather, and without reservations anywhere. The Fireside Inn was recommended by the people at the FBO. We were driven there, treated to warm popcorn, hot chocolate, and one of the nicest hotel rooms at a completely reasonable price. Complete with very comfortable king bed and fireplace. Breakfast the next day was outstanding. Service - so far beyond the call of duty that one would think they didn't have a full house (but they did!) The employees treated you like a B & B guest. Lovely location, great restaurant within walking distance (Patricks pub) and quiet. We traveled around NH for a week and had not planned to come back to Gilford/Laconia for the last night, but couldn't resist another nite at this place before flying back to Maryland. One little issue (no elevator) so it's carry your gear up a flight of stairs to a second floor room. However, they volunteered to do the carrying!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a fireplace, if you want that. Ask for first floor room if you don't want to carry your bags upstairs. They have a masseuse who works there only part time, so if you want that, you need to call and book ahead.

We used to go to the Gunstock Inn, until they closed up, and loved the family atmosphere. We found the Fireside Inn via the internet, and had no idea what to expect. We LOVED IT!!

1) It is FAMILY Friendly = the staff was so nice to all of us - loved the atmosphere!
2) The staff is super (reference above). They genuinely seemed to have a good time, were fun, accommodating, and made the customer seem like family! Cheryl and Elaine and Shannon were excellent - they are true gems, and we hope they are there next year!!
3) They have an INDOOR POOL, just like the Gunstock Inn used to (although a tad smaller, but it is clean, warm, and family friendly!)
4) Breakfast every AM - and tasty too! Friendly staff in there as well!
5) Clean hotel, nicely maintained.
6) Refridge in at least some of the rooms = very helpful for a family!
7) Fireplace in the lobby, and popcorn as well during the late afternoon = we loved it! We put our feet up on the recliners, snacked on some popcorn, and had relaxed for a bit, before dinner.
8) Frank the GM - younger fellow - helpful, accommodating, a real asset to their staff!

Bottom line -- we loved it! Especially great for families -- actually everyone would love it! We will of course be going back next season again, and hope it will be an annual family vacation!

Stayed at the Fireside after Thanksgiving while visiting family and it was a nice place to stay. It is in need of a little updating, but the suite we stayed in was clean and had everything we needed. The suite has a bedroom with a king size bed (and plenty of pillows), a living room with a sofa bed and a couple chairs. There was also a kitchenette - but we didn't use it so I can't tell you how that was, except that the frig was full size - not a mini - so it was good for keeping lots of beverages cold. Also, it was nice that you didn't have to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom, so if you have someone sleeping on the sofa bed that is not your child, they do not have to walk through your room while you are sleeping to use the bathroom. We didn't use the indoor pool, but it must have been pleasant enough because when I was in the lobby, I could see that a lot of kids were using it. The staff was extremely friendly and nice. All in all, it was a really nice place to stay. I rated it high, not because it is a Hilton, but it is nice for what it is.

My husband and I had banked a week from our timeshare which was about to expire. We went online to find a destination which was not too far from our home so we chose Fireside Inn which was about four hours away. We were very happy when we got here because the suites had been recently upgraded and were very clean and comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and go out of their way to accommodate guests. The lobby has a fireplace which is on at all times as well as a snack area where hot and cold beverages are available 24/7, hot popcorn from from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm daily and hot dogs from 5:00 to 7:00 Monday- Thursday. Complimentary breakfast is served daily, which includes cereal, waffles, pancakes, fruit and a variety of breads and bagels. The hotel is located on Lake Winnipesaukee and there is a beach nearby. Since we were here in November we were content to walk on the beach and around the surrounding neighborhood. There is a state park three miles away with trails for hiking. The Tanger Outlets in Tilton are a twenty minute drive away and a shoppers paradise. We highly recommend the Fireside Inn and Suites especially in November when rates are reduced.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms provide a beautiful view from the large windows.
