Lakeview House & Cottages
Reviewed 25 August 2010

The Cozy's catchphrase says it all: if you want to relax, it's "where you belong". If you want to have a breathtaking view, it's "where you belong". If you want to stay in a place that's central to all sorts of different activities, it's "where you belong". If you want to take a dip in a crystal clear pool, it's "where you belong".
My family and I just spent yet another idyllic week in Cottage 15. Clean, neat, a slice of Heaven...my "home away from home". The cottage had everything we needed, and if we thought of something we didn't have, all we had to do was ask; Dyan and Joe Driscoll are right on top of things to assist their guests.
This year we took advantage of the Cozy's kayaks; wish we had done THAT before!! Lake Winnipesaukee is absolutely beautiful and spending the day kayaking was a treat and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys the world's natural beauty. The Lake provides plenty of that!!
I attach a great deal of significance to the word "home"; Dyan and Joe's hospitality makes me feel very much "at home" in The Weirs.
If you're looking for a beautiful, relaxing experience, Cozy Inn, Lakeview House and Cottages is "Where You Belong".

This summer we spent our family vacation at the Cozy Inn at Weirs Beach and we could have been happier! We were looking for a fun, family friendly, affordable vaca spot and we found it. When we arrived, we were personally greeted and shown directly to our
accomadations which were ready before check-in time. We stayed in the
Captain's Suite and it was PERFECT for our family - 3 children (13 yrs, 11 yrs,
10 months). The suite was spotless and exactly as described on the website. The
kitchenette had everything we need and with a TV in each of the 2 bedrooms plus
the living room, everyone was happy. We could walk to the beach, the arcades, and
lots of attractions right down the hill. The pools are small but clean and perfect for cooling off after playing all afternoon. Also excellent for little kids, very safe. The view of the lake from the Captain's Suite is AMAZING! Keep in mind the suite is on the second floor so if you don't like stairs, this might not be a good match for you. Prior to arriving, I had lots of questions to plan a head for our infant son and older children. Dyan was wonderful as she promptly answered all my questions and has been nothing but wonderfully accomadating to us. The price is on the higher side per night but if you compare the size the space in this suite to other's around, the price is a great value especially for a whole family. You can tell the people here will do just about anything to make your stay enjoyable. Thank you!

We stayed in Cottage 8 and it was a terrible experience. The cottage looks like it is going to fall down at any time. The furnishings are old and worn out...and not nice quality antiques but cheap and tacky. You turn on many of the lights with dirty pull strings attached to a chain on the light, even in the bathroom. The fan in one of our bedrooms was broken, and the remote for the TV did not work. There was peeling wallpaper and vinyl flooring curled up and damaged in the kitchen and bathroom. To be honest, we could not wait to leave. We originally planned to stay 5 nights and stayed only 2 nights! Stay away!

We are always dismayed when visitors are unhappy with their experience here as no good can come of it.

In response– if you are unhappy with your accommodations – please say something, perhaps something can be done. Without voicing one’s concerns they cannot be addressed. How is the management to know you are unsatisfied unless you tell them? Give the owner or management the opportunity to address your concerns.

Cottage 8 is a 19th century farm outbuilding that has functioned for decades as a seasonal beach cottage. It most certainly is rustic, our most rustic offering in fact. Yes it may have some curling old linoleum and such, but its charm to its many fans is its age and casual atmosphere. Most folks are able to really relax in cottage 8. New England cottage vacationing is basically upscale camping or camping with a roof a bed and a bathroom. Most visitors emphasize outdoor activity – they go to the beach, enjoy the boardwalk, go out in boats, go hiking, cook outside and sleep with the windows open.

Our cottage business doesn’t pretend to be anything it isn’t. It is bad business to misrepresent one’s product whatever it is and we go to great pains to clearly describe our location, our facilities, and our capabilities. We are not a resort hotel or luxury condominium complex. We are a little mom and pop cottage colony in historic Weirs Beach NH. We offer casual cottage accommodations at competitive prices.

That occasionally a misunderstanding occurs is part of living in an imperfect world. It disappoints us when people don’t enjoy their stay. It’s also a shame when rather than voicing one’s concerns on the spot when something can possibly be done people choose to wait and until it’s too late go home and give a poor web review. Management was on duty within 200 feet of cottage 8 the entire duration of this visitation and no concerns were voiced. Whatever business you are in I’m confident that most feel it fair to at least have the opportunity to rectify a situation before it’s turned into an internet nightmare.

We stayed in Cottage 1 for a few days inbetween bike week and Nascar weekend. It is a great week to visit up there because it is not that busy. The cottage was nice and looked like the pictures. It had a grill and picnic table outside. There were 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and liviing room/dining area & a screened in porch.

The bedroom sizes were ok, a little small and the claw tub shower was small too. The side of this cottage is right next to a busy street that connects Weirs Beach boulevard to Route 3, so it was somewhat busier than we expected.

The cottage had AC and everything you would need in the kitchen. You can walk to the boardwalk and the view from the cottage is nice.

I would recommend Cozy Inn & Cottages.

As has been the case for 6 years in a row now, my family was welcomed again to the Cozy Inn, Lakeview House and Cottages. We are nearly as familiar with Weirs Beach as we are our own town, and the nearby attractions (such as Dynamic Ceramics, Winni's Animals, the shops along the Boardwalk, Pirate's Cove Mini-Golf, The Castle in the Clouds) are just that: NEARBY. Simple, fun things to do as a family, but not a long ride to any. The cool thing is, The Weirs is central to all of it. The view from the Lakeview House & cottages is second to none. And it's uphill from the Boardwalk, far enough that you don't hear the commotion, but close enough that if you want, you can participate in the commotion.
Our cottage was spotless and obviously well-kept. The cottages sport new roofs this year! Dyan and Joe Driscoll have been actively updating and re-creating the "old New England charm" that the Lakeview House represents without forgetting that it is indeed a gem of an Inn. And once again I thank them for a wonderful stay; I only wish it could have been longer. But at least I got my "Lakeview fix"!

We just returned from another great trip at the Cozy Inn & Cottages. This was our third year staying in cottage 6. The owners and employees are very nice and welcome us every year. The cottage we stay in has one bedroom and has everything in it you would need. There is always something new every year. This year it was a new table in the kitchen. There was also a gas grill and a nice picnic area, which was new from previous years.

The location of the Cozy Inn is great. It is a short walk to the beach area, and even shorter to the boardwalk. I would highly recommend the Cozy Inn & Cottages for familys and couples. It is a nice, relaxing place to stay.

My wife and I syayed here on a tour of new England. We syayrd in No. 4. Admittedly the cootages are basic in construction but have everything you need - spacious,king size bed, full kitchen, aircon and a powerful gas heater whivh we needed as it was a cold night Outside is a barbecue and picnic table and good views of the lake
The owner was very helpful and drew us a map of the local restaurants and was most apologetic that I could not get imto my alloted parking space - I easily parked across the street at one of their other properties
It is hard to be critical of this place as it is onlyUSD120/night and our cottage would in fact sleep four. However the shower needs replacing - there comes a point as we all know when you cannot shift the mould! Putting in one of those all in one plastic showers would be a great improvement
