Finding a place to stay

Having a hard time finding a place to stay?  Yeah, I figured.  Now through late April is the best time to secure a room, and since there aren’t many hotel rooms left in the Weirs area anymore due to condo conversions, finding vacancy for the dates you want can take quite a bit of effort.

This time of year, a lot of places are closed any might not even be answering the phones on a consistent basis, so using the internet is the best way.  Don’t throw in the towel.  First go through my page of bike week lodging which will link you to the google information page for various properties, where you’ll get direct links to hotel websites and property reviews.

Also handy to know is that the Laconia chamber of commerce keeps a listing of places that currently have openings for bike week.  Not all members participate, and the information is usually a few days old, but it’s a good start. Click here to access the latest information.

Archived Bike Week Cam from 2004

Thought you might enjoy a timelapse video from the cam showing portions of route three 1/2 mile south of Weirs Beach during the 2004 Laconia Bike Week. I have other days from past years archived, I’ll hopefully post more soon.
