For over two years, The Inns and Spa at Mill Falls have been pet-friendly, offering rooms at two of their Inns to guests who prefer to travel with their pets rather than leave them behind on vacations. But it’s not only guests and their pets who benefit from this service—animals at The New Hampshire Humane Society do, too!
Pet-Friendly accommodations at Church Landing and the Inn at Mill Falls are available for an additional $25 fee per pet, which covers a portion of the additional cleaning costs and amenities such as pet beds, blankets, food dishes, and treats. The Inns then set aside $10 of this fee for the NHHS in appreciation for all the good work they do, and so far have donated over $4,000 to this worthy cause!
The Inns also offer pet sitting services to allow guests some time to go out to dinner or shopping, while knowing that their loved ones are safe and happy! On site are special pet walking and play areas, and there are lots of open spaces and several doggie waste stations throughout Meredith.
When planning your next trip to Lake Winnipesaukee, don’t worry about what to do with your pets… bring them along—Meredith is a pet-friendly town!

As a new part of their Green Initiative, The Inns and Spa at Mill Falls have created designated parking spaces for environmentally friendly cars. The “preferred parking” spots are being tested at Church Landing and the Inn at Mill Falls, where there is one space at each location to start.
“Our Green Team came up with the idea,” says Gail Batstone, General Manager of the Inns. “Our green team includes members from each department within the hotel. The team’s intention, in respect to signifying these spaces, is to increase consumer awareness and encourage guests to use lower emission transportation.”
Ms. Batstone adds that the Inns wanted to build upon their current Green Mission Statement, which describes several ways the company is making environmental efforts in all areas of operation. According to the initiative, “We continually seek improvements and initiatives to lessen the impact on the local and global environment.”
The Inns plan to add more designated hybrid spaces if the project proves successful. Meanwhile, the management is looking forward to guest feedback. Feel free to share your thoughts!Carrie Reed The Mill Falls Blogging Team
