A Historic New Hampshire Inn

Inn at Pleasant Lake was built as a private residence in 1790 by Caleb Segur. He farmed over 400 acres of pasturelands in the lake valley. It was here, close to the shores of Pleasant Lake where he built his Cape style farmhouse and barn.

The property was later purchased by retired Union officer Colonel William Messer and opened as an Inn in 1868. He added a second story and a row of deep gables and named his summer resort The Red Gables Inn. It has remained a destination for hospitality for over 150 years. Read more about our history and this significant anniversary at our 150th Anniversary Blog.

The tradition of hospitality continues today at Inn at Pleasant Lake. Our restaurant, Oak & Grain, named as a tribute to our founder, continues to offer the finest locally sourced food in a warm, welcoming ambiance. The gables, the lake, the food, and the views remain, waiting to welcome you.

Join us for a memorable romantic getaway in New Hampshire.

Chef: Bryan Leary

Chef Leary grew up in New Hampshire. From an early age he was inspired by his grandmothers, one from New England and one from North Carolina, who both appreciated building meals from scratch.  He explored these culinary interests, eventually attending Johnson and Wales University and graduating at the top of his class.  There he found energy in the creativity and problem-solving that was the job of chef.  Chef Bryan’s professional influences came while working under Chef Douglas Luf at The Red Lion Inn in the Berkshires and Chef Reed Groban at the Scottsdale Fairmont Resort in Arizona.  He was particularly inspired by his work with Todd Jurich at Todd Jurich’s Bistro in Norfolk, Virginia.  These diverse experiences resulted in a cooking style rich in southwest, traditional American, and Pacific Rim, and a passion to deliver the highest quality cuisine in an intimate setting.

Back in Concord, Bryan immersed himself in simply made, high-end Korean cuisine at Sunny’s Kitchen.  At The Grill Room in Portland, ME, Chef Bryan established relationships with local vendors and farmers to incorporate how food was grown, harvested, and distributed.  In New London, Bryan has been able to indulge his interests in the local food movement working with local farmers and purveyors to bring his diners authentic freshness and creative flavors true to the seasons.

Chef Bryan Leary is a true asset for our community, and he is enthusiastic to meet you in the dining room.
