Located on Weirs Beach in Laconia, New Hampshire, Half Moon Motel & Cottages is a lovely place for families to stay during their visit to scenic Lake Winnipesaukee. The hotel offers standard guestrooms, as well as cottages. Cottages are especially perfect for families, providing more space and kitchenettes for preparing small meals and snacks. Some of the cottages also have screened-in porches from which you and the kids can enjoy views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the White Mountains.
Other perks at Half Moon Motel & Cottages include a large, outdoor swimming pool and free Wi-Fi.
The hotel is located close to everything, too — just two minutes from Weirs Beach Boardwalk, and about 10 minutes from Weirs Beach Drive-In Theatre.

We stayed here for our honeymoon 20 years ago. Returning 20 years later just seemed to make sense. The place seems to be stuck in a time bubble as it has not aged at all. The little cottage is clean as you could want and has all the amenities you need. It even has a TV although I don't know if it worked since we never turned it on. It has an amazing porch with comfortable chairs overlooking a million dollar view of the lake. Parking is right in front and very convenient. At the end of September it was as quiet as you could ask for. Great place!

Cleab motel with a great view. Be aware that the cabins are very rustic. The shower was tiny. It was very cean but we thought it was overpriced. We paid $130 in the off season for one night and we thought it was worth about $80, due to the lack of updating and general accomodation. The room we had was pet firendly and the room was quiet...........although there were ony a few guests staying at this time.
