    Fall Colors at the Inn

    Located only minutes from the lively Weirs Beach area, Meredith and the Gunstock ski area, was attentively built in 1939 by shipbuilder Byron Hedblom, who brought the Mount Washington cruise ship to Lake Winnipesaukee. Mr. Hedblom's fascination with boats and the sea was carried forward when three working lighthouses were placed on the property. The welcoming glow from the 15-foot-high lighthouses will guide you home each night along with the 60-foot-high mast used as a flagpole.

    Skiers View Atop Gunstock

    Each of our five cozy guest rooms has a private bath and fireplace, and is named after a well-known New England lighthouse. The inn itself sits on five acres of grassy fields and forest on a colorful, tree-lined country road that provides quiet lodging one block from beautiful Winnipesaukee, the centerpiece for fun in central New Hampshire, and close to all of the Lakes Region activities.
