We stayed for a few days at Weirs Beach to take a trip on the M/S Mount Washington around Lake Winnipesaukee as it was not only my birthday, but also the 25th wedding anniversary of a couple in our group who were married on the ship. We stayed at the hotel overlooking the booking station and lake.

My partner had a word with the Purser prior to our boarding and we were given a shout out over the tannoy system and personal attention the the Purser on arriving and disembarking.

Halfway through the tour we stopped at Wolfebay for a walk around the town and a meal.

Wheelchair friendly. Helpful staff.. Hated to leave but half the town had closed due to the end of season.. Didn't have the chance to go on the train but certainly would next time.

Lovely cruise on this huge lake in the sunshine. Food very plentiful and two glasses of Bucks Fizz included. Full bar onboard and beautiful scenery.
Well worth the price and just make sure that when you park you have plenty of time on your ticket.

The M/S Mount Washington cruises on lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire and is a grand old girl. The lake is surrounded by scenic mountains and dotted with islands and this little boat sails along giving a commentary on all you can see. You can sit inside or on the top deck and marvel at the scenery. Beer and drinks are available also food if you want. There is complimentary tea and coffee. Overall it was a pleasant experience sailing along looking at the spectacular scenery surrounded by the lake.

Thank you so much to the staff for making a trip on the Mount Washington possible for my mother; she uses a walker and was not sure she would be able to get down the walkway. A very nice young man assisted her in a wheelchair both down then up a fairly steep walkway. All of the staff and crew were friendly and polite.
Thank you again wonderful trip around Lake Winnipesaukee!

We celebrated our 25th anniversary the weekend of our visit. We chose the very reasonably priced 3 hour dinner and dancing at sunset cruise. It was gorgeous! The prime rib and stuffed haddock and all the fixings were very good. The band was fun and the dance floor was crowded. What a great way to enjoy the lake!
