We spent a week at this comfortable and welcoming family home. We came for a family gathering of our adult children and their families and friends and this rental had everything we needed. The house was lived-in, grandchild-friendly, dog-friendly, and sensibly equipped. The last paragraph of the description on the listing nicely describes the feeling of the house.
The second refrigerator came in very handy given the changing numbers for meals and the house is located close enough to a wonderful farm stand and the best local market so going out for more groceries was never a problem. The large screened-in porch served as a great dining room with plenty of room for everyone.
On rainy days, there was room enough for small groups to be doing totally separate things in the house or on the porch without any sense of being cramped or bothering someone who might be napping.
Open beach or sandy shallows are relatively rare on Squam. The beach here was unusually large and shallow enough for youngsters to get in and out of the water with ease. Even if the lake is high, leaving no uncovered sandy beach to sit on, the large area of sandy shallows is there for playing in the water and the dock is always there for sitting by the water with an outstanding view and sunsets. Several houses on this family property share the beach, and our family and the owner’s family members used the beach at the same time on occasion without any problem.
All of the bedrooms, but one over the kitchen, were quiet and the beds were comfortable. Earplugs solved any noise issues with that one bedroom. The second floor shower is cramped, but was hardly an issue.
Our family had a wonderful vacation at this property and we would recommend it for anyone looking for a comfortable and spacious place on the lake.
