You have your choice of lodgings here: relaxing Church Landing and Bay Point are on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee, and convivial Mill Falls is across the street, with a swimming pool and a 19th-century mill that's now a lively shopping area with more than a dozen unique shops. Also across the street is Chase House, which has 21 rooms, all with fireplaces and lake views. Which to choose? Well, Bay Point has waterfront rooms with private balconies, but the star of the
show is Church Landing, an Adirondack-style lodge where lush rooms have dramatic water views. The on-site Cascade Spa is one of the nicest in the state, with a heated pool that crosses from indoors to outdoors.
