Waterfront lodging in the Lakes Region? Of course, and plenty of it, too, from cabins to resorts

This is not rocket science: Waterfront lodging in the Lakes Region is everywhere! Stay in a charming inn and relax on a sun deck at water’s edge or in a hot tub overlooking the lake. Book a cottage with a screened porch practically on the lake, or rent a boat and cast off from your cottage’s private dock. Stay in an apartment with a full-service marina and sandy beach or a fully equipped condo with lake views. Book a suite in a resort with a sandy beach or a private lake for pedal-boating and fishing. Grab a drink at a beach bar or on-site restaurant with spectacular water views. Watch the stars come out at night over the water from your private balcony.

Resort’s location right on the lake has drawn happy visitors for decades

What’s the point of going on a lake vacation if you’re not right on the water? That’s not a problem at the NASWA Resort, where guests have been enjoying, for decades, its location right on lovely Lake Winnipesaukee. That means days spent watching the kids frolic in the lake while you sip a beverage from the NazBar. Or launching a resort kayak or paddle board, or bringing your own boat right up to the resort’s dock. Many rooms, suites and cottages have lake views from private balconies or porches. You can also enjoy those views from your table at the Blue Bistro, where you’ll find everything from fresh seafood to fine steaks. Area attractions include trails, arts venues, golf, shopping, arcades – and Storyland!
