I was surprising my boyfriend with a 2 night getaway for his birthday. I had emailed the Inn and been very specific with my questions and expectations. I was assured that the Inn was everything I was looking for.... well, it Definitely was not! The lobby and the Inn itself is very nicely decorated and has a welcoming feel, however they do quite the sell job on the website. The pictures and descriptions are very deceiving. The website says they have a private beach area for swimming, one of the main reasons I chose this place. It turned out to be a boat slip with a ferry, not just a boat, parked in it. They said you could still swim there. Where? Around the ferry? The room I booked was a King Mini-suite and was supposed to have a water view from the balcony. I paid extra to get this feature. The view was of the parking lot and if you moved to the other renters side, (it was a shared balcony) you could see a little water through the trees. When we first walked into our room, the whole place smelled like cheap plastic from the new shower curtain liner. You couldn't open any windows to air it out because the bugs would come in. Of course, there weren't any screens on the windows. We tried to make the best of it the first night and sat on our balcony to have dinner. We ended up going back inside because the Tavern at the Inn is apparantly a local hangout for anyone in town that wants to go drinking. Loud trucks were driving in and out of the parking lot (which, remember, is our view) with people yelling and swearing back and forth to each other from the Tavern deck. When we finally went to bed, the air conditioner didn't seem very cold, so we turned it up to high... or so we tried. It operated on the same low setting whether you had it on low or high. It never got cool enough in the room to be comfortable and then the air conditioner would shut itself off, only to loudly come back on later with a bang. We slept a total of about 2 1/2 hours. For the price the Inn was charging me for my "water-view mini- suite" I went downstairs and cancelled the 2nd night. Thankfully, after that, we had a great couple of days enjoying NH. As far as this Inn is concerned, the best thing we did was check out!
