JOIN US FOR DINING WITH A VIEW!
Guests are always awed by our panoramic vistas the first time they visit. In season, we’re open daily for lunch and have special dinner music nights from June through August.
The Carriage House Restaurant has received rave reviews from critics and guests alike. Our unique mountain top setting provides a dining experience unlike any other. This bistro style cafe offers an eclectic variety of original recipes, classics and new twists on old favorites.
Because we frequently update our menu to provide a variety of satisfying meals to our guests throughout the changing New Hampshire seasons, they are subject to change. You’ll find they include a collection of both original & classic recipes that suit all tastes!
“Love the carriage house and the fact it’s now open in the winter Sat & Sun for lunch!!! It’s our go to place to take our friends and family when they come to visit. The view is amazing. The food is delicious! Bloody Mary’s aren’t too shabby either 🙂 definitely worth it!”

In our summer season, our lunch menu offers options ranging from soups and salads to sandwiches and full entrees, with several vegetarian options as well as items that can be made gluten free. We’ve received rave reviews for everything from our grilled cheese to our lobster roll! Available on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from June 25 – August 23, our dinner menu highlights some of the luncheon favorites, along with a few heartier options for guests to enjoy while listening to music on the terrace.
Outdoor seating on our terrace offers views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the surrounding mountains. There are few other restaurants in the Lakes Region that offer the views comparable to those you’ll find from our Terrace. And if the weather isn’t ideal for outdoor seating, rest assured – we have tables inside as well! The interior of the building has remained relatively untouched and guests can dine indoors, in what were once the original horse stalls.
OTHER DINING OPTIONS ON SITE
If you’re not quite looking for a full meal, stop by Cones in the Clouds by Shannon Pond. We serve Gifford’s Ice Cream, bottled beverages, snacks, and light lunch items such as hot dogs and wraps. Cones in the Clouds is open 11:30am-5:00pm seasonally and depending on the weather.
The Carriage House is a high-volume restaurant and during our busy season (August & Fall Foliage) we can have a wait-list of up to an hour. We do not take reservations for lunch, so we highly suggest arriving early, especially if you have a large party.
