SmarterTravel Spotlight: Mill Falls at the Lake

Tucked away on the shores of New Hampshire’s pristine Lake Winnipesaukee, Mill Falls at the Lake offers the quintessential New England vacation experience. With multiple dining and accommodation options, a bustling town square, and a prime waterfront location, Mill Falls at the Lake is a true destination resort for everything from family trips to romantic getaways. 

Mill Falls at the Lake offers four distinct accommodation options: Church Landing, Bay Point, Chase House, and the Inn at Mill Falls. 

We stayed at Church Landing, an Adirondack-style inn boasting lake views in an elegant setting. 

The Location

Mill Falls at the Lake is set on the northwestern shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, New Hampshire. The resort is within steps of charming downtown Meredith, as well as The Marketplace, Mill Falls’ lively outdoor mall featuring local restaurants and boutique shops. 

Looking for some outdoor adventure? Mill Falls at the Lake is just 15 minutes from Gunstock Mountain, which offers skiing, hiking, ziplining, a mountain coaster, and more.


With an on-site activity center, EKAL, guests at Mill Falls at the Lake will never be bored. EKAL (lake spelled backward) offers a variety of ways to get out on the water, including pontoon boat charters, stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, and even aqua cycles—unique boats you can peddle on the water the same way you’d peddle a bike on land.

Back onshore, guests can rent bikes, play lawn games, roast s’mores, go on a guided hike, or take a yoga class.

Church Landing

For the ultimate Lake Winnipesaukee vacation, you can’t beat one of the rooms on the lower level of Church Landing. These luxuriously spacious guestrooms offer walk-out access to the lake, along with private covered patios from which to admire the view.

Kids (and adults looking for some comfort food) will love the nostalgic summer camp-style offerings at Camp. In addition to old classics like clam chowder and nachos, there are upgraded options like lobster corn dogs or bacon-wrapped jalapenos. 

Giuseppe’s Pizzeria & Ristorante

Book a table at Lago for the right time of night, and you’ll be rewarded with a stunning sunset view at this elegant waterfront restaurant—the spacious patio is the place to be on warm summer nights.
