“A fun place to stay on the lake and a great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

This was a great place to stay. It’s minutes away from everything and a great value. We can’t wait to go back. It’s especially great if you bring your boat or rent one on the lake as they have a dock you can use for free. Be sure to call early enough to get a room with a balcony on the water or a cottage on the water. We ate breakfast on the balcony overlooking the lake: beautiful. The rooms are small but cute, clean, and dry with no musty smell at all (which is a concern you need to think about with many of these lake places). The Nazbar restaurant is right on the water too. It’s fun and serves good food too (remember it’s Laconia, not a 5 start resort area, so good is relative). You can walk over and get an ice cream right next door (or take your boat over). If you’re not bringing a boat and want to rent one there’s a half dozen places within a stones throw. The staff is super friendly and helpful, so just call ahead and ask them. This will become a yearly trip for us.

Room Tip: Call early enough to get a room with a balcony on the water or a cottage on the water. The views are...

My friends and I rented a 2BR cottage at this resort, and I must say this place is fantastic. The cottage was just the right size for all four of us with a kitchen and screened in deck. The kitchen was small, not much room for more than one person, but it had everything you needed. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly, even the housekeeping staff went out of their way to accommodate a few questions we had. Overall, the NASWA was a great place to stay, and we would definitely come back!!

I have been going to NASWA since I was a young(er) adult! I used to bring my girls (starting at ages 2 & 6) every summer and they just loved it!!
It is situated on Paugus Bay and has a little beach bar that is outstanding!! Yummy drinks, sunshine and lots of fun people!
The boats pull up to the docks and stop by for lunch or cocktails. It is great to see all the different styles of boats come and go!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place! I live in California now and still fly back every summer so I can go to the NASWA!
They have cabins and hotel rooms, some on the water and the Inn across the street. All the rooms are clean and tidy. Since the cabins have been there for some years, they are very cozy and homey.
Although the drinks (at the beach bar) are a bit pricey, there is still something fun about drinking out of the fun shaped plastic cups, that you also get to take home with you.
You can also put your chair in the water and sit in the lake while the waitstaff delivers your drinks/food to you!
Best place to stay on the Lake!!

Room Tip: If you want a cottage, reserve early! They sell out fast. The best 'value' would be the &q...

I love staying at the NASWA; especially in a beach front room; a little pricey for the room as it is quite small and retro looking but clean. The rooms need to be updated somewhat but it is comfortable and I love the balcony. The beach bar is great; staff friendly and their restaurant is great for breakfast or dinner.

Where to begin...the beach bar is incredible! Whether you want to take a dip in beautiful Lake Winnipausakee or simply just hang out, and catch some rays. This is a great place to go cocktailing (yes it is a verb here) because there is action a plenty, and good times are there to be had! Prices are reasonable and the staff always goes out of the way to make you feel welcome. The food...the restaurant has a fabulos chef...you have to try the Lobster Ravioli...the Chicken Parm is also to die for...save room for desert...they are homemade daily...if they have the Tommy Bahama cake...it is to die for...also the carrot cake is out of this world...did I mention the flourless Soufle? When coming to New Hampshire's Lake's Region put The Naswa on your list...you will not ne dissappointed!

This place is WAY over priced for what they offer. It is nothing more then a place for people to go show off their money. Big boys and their big toys. The beach bar is overpriced for the quality and portions that you get. If you want to go to a place where the so called "beautiful" people go to show off and flaunt their money then this is the place for you. As for me,,,, being there makes me sick. All the wanna bees and posers, hanging out and leaching off the rich lonely people is a joke. Pleanty of beautiful places on Lake WINNI to stay without being subjected to that kind of BS.

We stayed in one of the cottages right on the beach. It was absolutely perfect, nothing fancy just what you needed. We had a small kitchenette, dining table, even a screened in porch! What was best was being right on the beach of the lake. It was so peaceful just to sit outside and enjoy the view. Liked it so much we are returning in the spring!

Room Tip: You have to call to rent cottages, can't rent them on line.
