Bed & breakfast in Sanbornton offers a little R & R to military couples

SANBORNTON — The Lake House at Ferry Point Bed and Breakfast is once again marking Veteran's Day by offering active and retired military couples a complementary night at the Inn.

"Last year we opened the entire Inn to veterans to enjoy the night on us, and it was so popular that we could have filled the Inn ten times over" said John Becker, Owner/Innkeeper of the Lake House. John and Cindy Becker, who purchased the Inn on November 1, 2011, are joining nearly 250 innkeepers across the United States, and hundreds of Canadian innkeepers to honor veterans on November 11th in the Annual B&B for Vets celebration.

Active and retired military couples will be treated to a complimentary overnight stay on Veteran's Day followed by the Lake House's renown full, multi course breakfast. This year, the Lake House is teaming up with Cindy O'Leary at Experience Squam, to offer complementary "On Golden Pond" boat tours of Squam Lake for the Veterans staying at the Lake House. During the tour, guests will be treated to stops at all of the movie locations, including the Cottage, the secret fishing holes, and "Purgatory Cove," all made famous in the movie.

"We are excited to join with the Lake House to make B&B for Vets even more special,." Said O'Leary." "It is our way of giving back, and saying 'thank you' for your service to our Country."

John and Cindy both have a strong family history of military service. "My father and John's served in the Army during Korea, and both of my Uncles served, one in the Army, the other in the Marines, and John Served in the Navy," said Cindy. We honor the service of our military men and women, both retired and active, and are glad to be able to do our small part in recognizing their sacrifices."
