Get Out on the Water in the Lakes Region this Summer!Posted on June 10th, 2011 No comments
Whether it’s kayaking, touring on a cruiser, or jet skiing, there are many different ways to enjoy boating on Lake Winnipesaukee, and visitors to Meredith, NH can easily find the right watercraft to fit every mood thanks to this Lakes Region hotel.
The Inns and Spa at Mill Falls have partnered with some great local boating sources to offer guests an unforgettable lake experience. With Wake Up and Ride, visitors can take advantage of a chartered Malibu Wakesetter, which seats 10 – 12 people comfortably for water skiing, wake- or knee-boarding, and sightseeing cruises. According to the company’s website, “If you haven’t experienced wakeboarding, you have been sleeping. We are here to get you to Wake UP and Ride!”
Also available through the Inns are group lake tours and private charter cruises on Latitude 43’s “Down East Cruiser.” This custom-built luxury boat is large enough for 10 guests, but small enough to explore many areas of Lake Winnipesaukee that are not accessible to larger vessels. A private cruise is flexible, allowing for course changes and stops in various ports around the lake for shopping or dining. Picnics are welcome onboard, too! What a great way to spend the day with family and friends! For either the scheduled group tours or the private charters, guest boarding is available at the Church Landing Docks.
Nearby Squam Lake is beautiful, too, and guests are encouraged to visit this charming place where On Golden Pond was filmed, just seven miles from Meredith. Experience Squam offers private excursions aboard a 23′ Sea Ray Bow-Rider, and guests can customize their adventures with a variety of options, including swimming stops, movie site tours, and sunset and stargazing cruises. Visitors can even stroll through a swamp along a boardwalk to see some wildlife or pick native blueberries when they are in season!
For those who like to take the helm themselves, boat and jet-ski rentals are available through Meredith Marina, right next door to Church Landing. Meredith Marina has one of the largest boat rental ﬂeets on Lake Winnipesaukee, with 19’ Stingray Bow-Riders, 19’ deck boats from Hurricane, pontoon boats, jet skis, and canoes. Don’t forget the water toys—Meredith Marina has skis, tubes, and boards, too! They rent for any time period that fits guests’ needs, including half-day, full-day, multi-day, or multi-week, with discounts for early reservations and longer-term rentals, as well as a Mill Falls guest discount!
Looking for something quieter? The Inns at Mill Falls have kayaks available for rent daily from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. There is no better way to feel at one with the lake and get up close to nature than in a solo kayak! Relax and rejuvenate!
Whatever your preference in boating, the Inns and Spa at Mill Falls have you covered! For most outings, reservations can be made at the front desk at Church Landing. When booking your stay, don’t forget to reserve your boat or tour to make the most of your summer getaway!
