The Lantern Inn B&B - "Where friendships are made and memories are cherished." Located in the beautiful Lakes Region of NH, the Lantern Inn B&B is a delightful year-round retreat situated on 5 beautiful More acres, just minutes from Weirs Beach, Lake Winnipesaukee. It was built as a family summer home in WWII by shipbuilder Byron Hedblom, who navigated the Mount Washington cruise ship to the lake. The Lantern Inn delivers an easygoing charm with an accent on comfort and genuine hospitality. It offers 5 cozy guestrooms each with an en suite bathroom. Every guestroom has been carefully decorated to radiate its own unique style and make you feel as if you have stepped into a tranquil haven. Your comfort is our top priority. The Lantern Inn is an ideal escape for couples and traveling companions who wish to unwind and enjoy a serene atmosphere, but yet still be close enough to enjoy all the amenities that Weirs Beach and the surrounding area has to offer. We are less than 5 miles from major banks, grocery stores, shopping and Meadowbrook Pavilion – which hosts numerous concerts throughout the summer! Funspot – a gigantic arcade, and Monkey Trunks – a zip lining course are less than a mile up the road! For all you NASCAR fans, we are less than 20 miles away from NH Motor Speedway! Summer Soulfest is less than 10 miles away at Gunstock Mountain Resort! The Lantern Inn is also the perfect place for intimate wedding events (The owner is a Justice of the Peace), small family gatherings, holiday parties, girl’s getaways, knitter’s or quilter’s retreats, scrap-booking get-togethers, or other special occasions or celebrations. Come enjoy the simple pleasures in life! Less
