When arriving at The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls, guests immediately feel a sense of calm and relaxation. Of course, stepping into one of the four Inns or cottages marks the beginning of a true getaway, and the friendly, professional hospitality helps guests feel well cared for, but the ambiance of each space creates an undercurrent of tranquility that brings all the elements of a NH vacation together: simplicity, comfort, beauty, and a connection with the natural surroundings—nothing too much and nothing missing. This subtle balance was achieved by interior designer Patricia Sava, a true artist with a keen sense for creating just the right mood for every space she helps design.
“I have been fortunate to have had design projects all over the country since I started Sava Designs, LLC in 1976,” says Pat. “Projects run the gamut from mid-mountain cafeterias and dining facilities in Vail and Beaver Creek CO, interval-ownership condominiums in Stowe, VT, Loon Mt, Lincoln NH, and Breckenridge CO, boutique hotels in Meredith and Lakeport NH, Breckenridge, and Telluride CO, and an assisted living and rehab center in Meredith, NH, to golf clubs in Beaver Creek, CO and Melvin Village, NH. My own houses in Waterville Valley, NH, Breckenridge, CO, Merida Mexico, and a houseboat in Sausalito, CA have been fun projects as well.” Read the rest of this entry »

Last Thursday, this lakeside resort broke ground for its latest project—an expansion that will bring 13 new deluxe lake-view rooms and suites, as well as 186 feet of additional lake frontage, to its most popular destination: Church Landing.
The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls has officially begun construction on Phase II of its Church Landing expansion, which will add two new buildings, The Birch Lodge and The Boathouse Lodge, to the south end of the property. The new buildings are being constructed on either side of the existing Lake Shore Cottage, which was recently renovated to include two unique suites overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee. All three buildings will be attached to Church Landing via a covered cedar walkway, and all rooms will offer spectacular lake views, balconies, and screened porches. In addition, each room will have luxury amenities, including a fieldstone fireplace, wet bar, whirlpool bath, double glass and tile shower, and a bathroom LCD TV.
“We are thrilled to begin construction on this part of our expansion project,” says Rusty McLear, President and CEO of The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls. “Church Landing at Mill Falls continues to be enjoyed by tourists and residents alike, and these additions will certainly enhance our guests’ experience.”
The expansion will also feature a new lobby and game area, a second indoor/outdoor infinity pool with two Jacuzzis, an outdoor fire-pit and grille station for summer BBQs, a large sundeck with food and beverage service, and several new boat docks.
“We have a vast number of guests who regularly stay with us, and it’s exciting that each time they visit, we are adding more facilities and more options to consider, while keeping our focus on our core mission – unforgettable customer service,” says Gail Batstone, General Manager of The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls. Adds Michelle Brown, Director of Marketing at The Inns, “Church Landing is our most reserved property and on many occasions it is sold out.”
The expansion will be able to accommodate more fans of the Inns as early as next July, when construction on the project is expected to be completed. Phase I of the project was finished this past May, converting the carport at Church Landing into additional event space and dining areas. The new facility, called “The Carriage House,” now boasts 1,700 square feet of meeting space, an expanded lobby area with fourteen-foot ceilings, and sweeping views of Lake Winnipesaukee.
The Church Landing expansion promises to enrich the experience of visitors to Meredith as well as locals who enjoy events and spa services at Church Landing. It’s all part of the Inns’ mission to continually improve its facilities. As Ms. Batstone explains, “We often hear the comment, ‘so, what are you adding this year?!”

If you’re looking for a place to stay for you and your family that offers a somewhat different experience than one of the Inns’ more traditional hotel rooms, but would still like all the great services and amenities provided by the Inns, look no further. The Inns are now offering a quaint little cottage for just that purpose. It’s right across the street from Lake Winnipesaukee, only a stone’s throw away from Church Landing, and a short walk to downtown Meredith.
Although I have not personally spent a night in the cottage, I can certainly imagine myself doing so. From every room in the cottage, one can look out onto a spectacular view of Lake Winnipesaukee. The large windows also allow for copious light to brighten up your day!
Occupying two floors with over 1000 square feet of living space, there are three bedrooms – two with queen beds and one with bunk beds for the kids – and two full baths. There is a spacious living room with a large fireplace to warm your nights, and a well-equipped full kitchen. As with any guest room in the hotel, the cottage is tied into all the Inns’ services, including phone, complimentary WIFI, continental breakfast, pool, beach, fitness center, and much more.
Try something new at The Inns and Spa at Mill Falls. The rates start at $439 per night for up to 4 people, with $20.00 per additional person during Spirited Season, and just $389 per night during Serenity Season. A ten percent discount is offered for stays of over five nights, as well as a twenty percent discount for seven nights or more. Call the Inns for more information: (603) 279-7006.
