6.     Are you on the Lake? Not directly, we are across the street from the lake but we do have two docks and a small beach across the street that you are welcome to enjoy.  If we were lakeside our rates would be much higher, so you can enjoy the lake without the higher rates.

17.   Why are you $5 more than so and so up the road? You usually get what you pay for, maybe it is the heated pool, the access to the lake, the availability of the Recreation room and grill area, the morning coffee or the fact that we tend the help better so you get a cleaner room.

Customer Testimonials

A surprising treat

We were late trying to get a place to stay for Bike Week 2007. Weren’t expecting much of a place when we booked at Birch Knoll, being one of a few available at the time. Upon arrival we were so surprised to find this place to be very pleasing, close to Weirs beach, clean, with a beach across the street, heated outside pool, rec room, ice machine, pad for bike kick stand, Grills, benches all around decks, and great maid service. Had most all the comforts of home and the people were so friendly. While we were there we had already talked about staying there again soon. Told all our friends about this place. This is one of Laconia’s best kept secrets.
