We arrived @ DEXTER'S INN (BED & BREAKFAST) on a sweet, tree lined, dirt road. The main house is magnificent and where you go for breakfast. We found out that they only serve dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. We were there from Monday - Friday, so we only had breakfast there.
The room was big enough for the tree of us, and we had a large glass window that looked out at beautiful Mount Sunapee! My husband and I shared a cute canopy bed, that I will show in my attached photos. Our son (age 16) had a bed in the corner which was fine. We also had a small frig in the room to keep drinks and snacks cold.
I took an immediate dip in the pool and caught some rays after our 2 1/2 hour ride from Connecticut. There were some people there waiting for the rest of their "family reunion" to arrive. Apparently, they accommodate many of these reunions, so if you do not like a crowd, then ask ahead if this will be what you arrive too.
We had no problem with this.
The ride to Dewey Beach was literally 5 minutes away. Ask the manager for a FREE pass to get into this family oriented beach. I have been coming here since I was 8 years old and am passing this legacy on to my son. They have free kayaking, sunfish sail boats, swings for the kids, basketball hoops, and a game of baseball was going on with some local kids.
We parked our blanket and chairs, under a tree so my husband could read in the shade. You can actually buy an ice cream here for a dollar. All the staff and life guards are VERY friendly.
We ate at ONE MILE WEST (2) of the nights as we have been there years before. Best food and service, and again, a 5 minute ride from Dexters Inn.
The breakfast time is 7:30-9:30AM. They have cook to order anything you want! I had a lovely omelette, one day, blueberry pancakes (2) days and french toast another. All the breakfasts are mouth watering and delightful. Really great service!
Take a ride to LAKE SUNAPPEE, and enjoy the Lake Boat ride that leaves @ 2PM for 1 1/2 hours, all around the lake. You will even go by a certain rock stars RED HOME, with a "DREAM ON" effect as the top of the home has a remote, so you can sleep looking at the stars.....Guess Who?
I would go back here again, because of the million dollar views, the spacious grounds, with tennis and shuffle board, indoor games so families interact. There is a flat screen tv in the common room in the main house. We stayed across the street in the Annex part. I will say this. If you have small children, DO NOT STAY in the ANNEX house as the dirt road is 4 feet from your door and certain times of the days, cars do drive by a bit fast. Other than that, it is very quiet and peaceful.
