2018 Year in Review!

As we close out 2018, we want to reflect and thank all our wonderful guests that stayed with us this past year.  We strive to make your stay better and better each year. This was our busiest year in 26 years!  More people than ever came through our doors this year than ever before.  Thank you!

We also want to give shout-outs to the following:

  • Joe & Bev for all the help and support you give us year in and year out.  You are the BEST!
  • Frank – for helping us keep all our lights on!
  • Dave Blake – the best “dirt” guy in the Lakes Region – he builds our stone walls and makes our place look beautiful
  • To Suzanne – well – what can I say…. she knows… <3
  • To our staff – Ashley, Gena, Amanda, George, Monica, Tatum, Pamela & Desi – who keep this place running, keep it clean and make our guests happy!  We can’t do it without you!
  • to our family for their support, guidance and love… and for listening!
  • to the beautiful Lakes Region of NH where we live – every day is beautiful!
  • and to Owen – our new grandson – he’s a fighter.  God bless him.

We wish you all the best for 2019 and look forward to seeing you!  Thank you!

Super Sunday!

We are all about Super Bowl Sunday as we are excited about our New England Patriots once again vying for title! Let’s Go!!

The Groundhog saw his shadow – doesn’t he every year?? so that means another six weeks of winter.  No mind, it ends eventually and that brings Spring and flowers.

We are making our plans for the upcoming season and want to give you an update on our accommodations –

95th Laconia Motorcycle Rally – we are filled up for the second weekend but have openings for the first weekend and mid-week.

Bank of NH Pavilion – they are going to have some great shows this summer.  Already announced:

  • Dave Matthews Band – June 12& 13 – smack dab in the middle of the Motorcycle Rally – good news is we still have some openings so if you are looking for lodging – contact us! We are just 3 miles from the venue!
  • Keith Urban – July 5 & 6!  He’ll be closing out the July 4th holiday! If you have tickets plan on coming July 3rd so that you can see the Weirs Beach July 4th Spectacular Fireworks show that sets off at 12:01 AM on July 4!
  • Chris Stapleton is coming back on August 24 – he has been packing them in so book early.

More shows are being announced and we will keep you updated.

Soulfest & Nascar- we still have openings for both events.  This year seems to be a “reunion” year as we have several booked for this summer.  If you are planning one – come join us!

Hope you all enjoy today’s game and we look forward to the Summer!  Your chair awaits!

March Time!

March has come roaring in like a lion! The sun is out but the winds are howling! The snow has melted very fast and we are itching to get going on our Spring projects. I just had my first Spring Shopping Spree at HomeGoods and was able to pick up some new end tables and other fixtures for the rooms. This is the first of many shopping trips…. it’s my “rite of Spring!”

Lakeside Avenue is undergoing a major renovation. The sidewalks have been dug up, the utiltity wires are getting buried underground and the road will be all new. Along with that we have new owners at the Winnipesaukee Pier – East Coast Flightcraft Boat dealers – so there will be changes there as well! So you can expect to see a new and improved Weirs Beach this year!

Time to say “Thank you”

We had the best season in the 24 seasons we have been innkeeping. We cannot thank our wonderful guests enough for staying with us. Those who have been coming years and those that just discovered us this year. We are humbled for your patronage. We are grateful, too, for our wonderful staff – Ashley, Genavieve, Mandy, Kristopher, Amanda, Paula, Sam & Bea – who always give us their best. We could not do this without them! Thank you!

With that, we wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

Let the Summer fun begin!

Memorial Day weekend was a record-setter! The weather on Saturday was prime for sun and fun! We are optimistic that the weather for the summer will continue this trend. With that said, have you made your vacation plans yet? We still have some openings in our most popular units – Cottages 1, 4, 15, and 16 as well as the Captain’s Suite.  We only have a few openings for event weekends – Nascar, Soulfest and Ironman and some mid-week openings during Laconia Motorcycle Week. Bank of NH Pavilion has scheduled some great shows this year.  Have you seen the roster? Florida Georgia Line, Ringo Starr, Keith Urban, Dave Matthews, Rod Stewart to name a few. With all this going on, you can’t miss out. Contact us so we can assist you with making your vacation plans.

It’s January – can Spring be far behind??

Hi – well, we are almost through the first month of the New Year… we’ve not had much snow so far and the lake isn’t frozen.  Currently the Mid-Atlantic states are getting pounded by a blizzard. We’re not. Just this morning there is the first sign of some lake hardening in Weirs Bay. The Pond Hockey Tournament has changed its location from Meredith Bay to Lake Waukewan where the ice is thicker. What a difference a year makes when at this time last year we were buried in snow!

When snow storms come, that’s when we get an influx of inquiries and reservations for the summer. Snow is outside the window = summer vacation! We’re all for that kind of thinking!  We have already sat around the kitchen table and made our list of upgrades for this year. It’s kind of our “annual” event – like a rite of passage into Spring. We figure out when we can start and that just makes it seem like Spring is almost here. Well, if you look at the calendar, Spring is only two months away!!

In the interim of when we can get started, we are going to look forward to hearing from you – make your summer vacation plans, book your Laconia Motorcycle week cottage, get an update on your Ironman training, and/or meet some new folks that will be joining us for the first time!  We’ll enjoy some Pond Hockey, check out the Ice Fishing Derby and of course watch the Superbowl! Think Spring!!

Thinking 2016!

We haven’t yet closed up for the 2015 season – which by the way, was our best EVER!!! Thanks to all of YOU!

We’re already looking ahead to next year.

We’ve started to take reservations for the special events – Laconia Motorcycle Rally, July Nascar and The Soulfest. Some folks have already booked their summer vacations! Time to start thinking about it. Now is time to book the prime units.

For the first time in I honestly don’t know how many years, Cottage 1 – our popular 3 bedroom cottage – is available for the 2016 Laconia Motorcycle Week! Some lucky group is gonna snap this up!

We’re here 24/7/365 so don’t hesitate to contact us anytime – well, we do sleep. 😉
