Lakeside location makes this inn a perfect getaway four seasons of the year

It’s all about location at the Center Harbor Inn, tucked into the northwest shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. With sixteen dock slips and eight moorings, the inn is a welcome vacation spot for boaters. But even landlubbers can enjoy the lake access by taking advantage of paddle boards, kayaks and pedal boats or plunking an umbrella down on the 200-foot sandy beach. (In the winter, there’s ice fishing!) It’s a short walk to Center Harbor, a quiet lake town, with many dining and shopping options and nearby hiking and snowmobile trails. Marvel at the mountain and lake views from your comfy room, suite or cottage or relax in the four-season outdoor hot tub overlooking Winnipesaukee’s beauty.
