Condo-Style Suites near Lake Winnipesaukee
Encompassing more than 180 miles of winding shoreline, Lake Winnipesaukee is easily the biggest lake in New Hampshire. Dozens of sandy beaches hug the shore and lead to the lake's crystal-clear waters, and by boat, visitors can explore its secluded coves and tiny islands. A half a mile from the water's edge, the Summit Resort provides easy access to all of these seasonal activities.
The hotel plays host to aquatic action of its own inside its 25,000-square-foot amenities center replete with a large heated pool, a slide, and a stone waterfall grotto that gives way to an enormous roman spa and sauna. For a quick workout, adults can head to the fitness center's racquetball courts, and kids can lasso tetherballs on the children's playground.
The resort's two-bedroom suites recall home with a full kitchen, an in-room washer and dryer, a private furnished balcony, and poorly wrought refrigerator art. Guests can cozy up to the red brick fireplace or watch a movie on the TV.
Laconia, New Hampshire: Bustling Boardwalk and Mountain Activities
Laconia is the largest town along Lake Winnipesaukee, and it sits in central New Hampshire in the heart of the Lakes Region. The town has been a vacation destination for more than a century due to its laid-back boating culture and family-friendly attractions, such as a three-story arcade and bumper carpool lanes. Weirs Beach, located 1 mile from the hotel, is fronted by a bustling boardwalk lined with open-air bars, ice-cream parlors, and souvenir shops.
The snowcapped peaks of the Ossipee Mountains, one of three ranges surrounding Laconia, hover above Lake Winnipesaukee. Eight miles from the hotel, Gunstock Mountain is crisscrossed with biking and hiking trails and an adventure park where visitors can zipline through tree canopies and hop aboard segways to explore.
