An inn for those who love the water, this inn is somewhat dated but stylishly decorated with modern furniture. Many rooms include stunning views of Crescent Lake, a quiet and pristine body of water next door to the much larger and more active Lake Winnipesaukee. The inn has its own beach a short walk down a grassy lawn, and even better provides free canoes and kayaks for guests to get out onto the water as much as they want.
The rooms include many with two queens and a view of the lake; they include microwave, fridge, and toaster, and can also be combined with king rooms to make a family suite. In addition, the inn has one family suite with a full kitchen (though no view); it includes two queens and a sleep-sofa. Wolfeboro is the quieter side of Lake Winni, offering a real small-town field far from the frenetic crowds and speedboats of Weirs Beach and Laconia. It is still, however, within easy drive of all of the Lake District’s many kid-friendly attractions of the Lake District.

The Crescent Lake Inn doesn't look like much when you pull in but go on the other side of the Inn and it is beautifully situated on the lake! There is a large grass area and then the lake with kayaks to use and a small beach for the warmer weather. The fall colors were amazing! It is just a short distance from downtown Wolfeboro.
The room was very clean and large with everything you would need for an extended stay.
I would recommend the Crescent Lake Inn!
Very clean and updated rooms. Excellent service. Very scenic and pristine area on Crescent Lake. Close to downtown Wolfeboro where you can find nice restaurants, cafes and tours. Nice place to have a vacation and see rural New England. Highly recommend this establishment.
