NH Ski Area Discounts

As the lake begins to freeze over right before our eyes, we are thrilled to jump into some winter sports and activities! Soon enough visitors will be out ice skating, snowshoeing and snowmobiling just beyond our very own beachfront. While waiting for the ice to thicken, guests are welcome to take advantage of other great snow sports in the area with hugely discounted skiing and snowboarding tickets from our partner ski areas: Gunstock, Waterville Valley and Loon Mountain.

Gunstock Mountain, located in the neighboring town of Gilford, is a short 30-minute drive away. Guests taking advantage of our Gunstock Ski and Stay package enjoy 20% off the accommodations of their choice and 25% off tickets to Gunstock which can be used for downhill skiing, snowboarding, tubing, or cross-country skiing. One of the closest large ski mountains near Boston, you can appreciate the beauty of Gunstock’s panoramic views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the surrounding Belknap Mountain range from the summit. Once you finish your runs at the mountain, make your way back to the Inn and into our four-season outdoor hot tub, while enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee locally roasted by Wayfarer Coffee Roasters. You cannot go wrong choosing us for your Gunstock Lodging.

If you are planning to head a bit further north into the White Mountain National Forest, there are two more excellent ski areas that we offer discounts for. Located 45 minutes away in Lincoln, New Hampshire, Loon Mountain is a perfect choice for riders of any age and skill level. Keep an eye on their website for exciting upcoming events at the mountain!

Get a great night’s rest and in the morning head down to the front office and check out all of our ski discounts while enjoying our continental breakfast to get you fueled up for another amazing day on the slopes.
