Just up the hill from Weirs Beach - Clean, Comfortable, Affordable...
We're located in the heart of the Lakes Region
New Hampshire's 1848 Inn and Resort is an easy walk to Weirs Beach, and minutes away from shopping and dining opportunities in lovely Meredith, NH. We are within two hours of Boston, the White Mountains, and the Atlantic coast.
Stay at the 1848, enjoy unrivaled hospitality, and wake to the soft sound of the breeze in the surrounding pines. Enjoy your complementary, fresh-brewed, morning coffee before setting out to enjoy all the area has to offer. All units have picnic and barbecue areas, and share a kiddie area with a swing and slide. Older children will enjoy the game room and basketball hoop, while children of all ages will gravitate to the large pool. We're across the street from Kellerhaus, a renowned ice cream/gift shop, and within walking distance of the Weirs Beach Water Slide, the Drive-In Theater, Mini-Golf Course, Winnipesaukee Playhouse, and the Weirs Boardwalk.
The 1848 is a local landmark rich in history… while for the past 50 years the 1848 has provided rental units (currently 23 units) as a favorite vacation destination, the 1848 was originally built (per its name…) in the year 1848 as a small inn and carriage stop. The original owners were active abolitionists who hid runaway slaves bound for Canada in a secret room at the 1848. The small dirt-floored room used to harbor these slaves still exists today hidden away in an undisclosed location on the 1848 property. During its first 100 years, the 1848 also served as a functioning cow farm and was tied to all the land that currently lies between Route 3 and Parade Road. During the grand hotel era, the 1848 was known as the Batchelder Farm, owned by a branch of the same family who owned much of the land along New Hampshire's seacoast.
