Charming Squam Cabin

  • 4 of 5
Great cabin - clean, spacious and only a short walk to the beach! We were fortunate enough to meet the owners, who could not have been more friendly. We had a great week with beautiful weather, fabulous hikes and wonderful food - can't wait to go back!

Book now and treat yourself

  • 5 of 5
Like many people I work alot amidst lots of distractions. If you are seeking a place in which you can hear your own voice and relax, the cottage at Squam Lake is the place to go.The cottage's charm and the beauty of the area cannot be captured by the pictures. It is the perfect get-away! This summer was my third summer at this "jewel" and I am returning this fall as a "special treat" to myself. The degree of privacy is excpetional. The cottage is extremely comfortable, spotless and has all the supplies one could need and or want. Kitchen is well supplied, living area comfortable, lighting great in each room for reading. All amenities are even better than described. Shower is new and large with great water pressure.Most enjoyed the boat ride on Squam Lake to learn its history
Make a reservation, treat yourself to a piece of "heaven"

A perfect week at the Guest Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I just returned home from an early July vacation for a week at the Guest Cottage with my husband and our toddler daughter. We had an absolutely perfect week. The cottage was clean, charming, and comfortable with easy access and a small, shady beach (just across a dirt road) to Squam Lake. We were able to walk our daughter all the way out to the floating swimming dock which was great as she cannot swim yet, but was able to enjoy the dock with us. We loved canoeing around the quiet cove also. We were frequently visited by a loon and a family of mergansers and could hear the loon calls on Squam every night. We stumbled upon many frogs and salamanders at the shoreline to the delight of our daughter. There are several walking trails in the area for exploring and great kid-friendly hikes close by. With a wonderful farm stand just down the road we were set for the week with everything we needed. I highly recommend the cottage for a quiet vacation for a couple or a small family looking to get away. Our contact for the listing was extremely helpful and an onsite contact was also very welcoming.

Secluded Paradise on Squam Lake

  • 5 of 5
We (my husband, I and our dog) stayed in the Squam Lake Cottage Sept 21 through 25th. The cottage was exactly what we were looking for…away from it all and surrounded by beautiful nature. As we came to New Hampshire in late September we were expecting it to be a bit chilly. Lower temperatures at night made sitting by the fire and getting into the warm bed at night all that much more exciting and cozy. The firewood in the house was a bit damp, but we got a fire log which solved the problem immediately. The cottage was spacious and afforded a beautiful view of green trees from all four sides.

James, the owner of the cottage, was very responsive, flexible and accommodating with all our requests and questions…and we had quite a few. He was very quick to help us with an Internet issue we were having, make recommendations as to what to explore in the area, allowed us an early check in and late check out at no additional charge, as no new renters were arriving on the day of our departure.

The surrounding areas of the cottage are breathtaking. During our stay we went boating (canoe use was included in the rental price), biking, visited local antique stores and went on a few amazing hikes. I would highly recommend doing the Basin-Cascades trail in the White Mountains. There was so much more that we wanted to do but ran out of time. Overall it was a super relaxing and pleasant stay.

Perfect getaway in the woods

  • 5 of 5
We had a great weekend staying at cottage. We arrived at night and luckily the owner had given us a map and thorough directions, because the cottage really is tucked away from civilization off a dirt road the runs straight into Squam Lake. When we woke up in the morning, we were amazed at our luck. The cottage itself is very charming, with huge screened windows looking out into the woods and a large spiraling stone fireplace. The lake is a two minute walk away, and there is a canoe and private beach for guests to enjoy. We met the onsite manager, who stopped by to make sure everything was ok and let us know where to reach her if we needed anything. During the day we hiked at nearby Mt. Cardigan, and we hope to return to explore other areas in the vicinity like Franconia Notch. We cooked all of our meals in the cabin, which was well equipped. There is a general store for supplies in the small town about 10 minutes drive down the road. The firewood directly behind the cabin was running low (and was quite damp due to recent rains) as another reviewer noticed, but there was a large firewood bin just a short walk down the road by the parking area. We made a fire at night and found it to be plenty warm (it was early Sept) and quite cozy. Overall, we had the perfect weekend and look forward to staying again. Highly recommended!!!

Would not go back

  • 2 of 5
This cottage was more like a fort. Not insulated, so at night we froze! The firewood provided would not burn so we couldnt start a fire. I dont like complaining but we were not offered any money back for the stay. Was looking forward to a lovely weekend but was very disappointed!

Owner's Response: As detailed in the listing, the cottage, similar to many cottages in the Lakes Region, does not have heat or insulation. You are correct; the firewood was depleted by tenants the prior weekend. It is unfortunate that this was not brought to our attention until after your departure as we had provided contact information in advance (in the Sub-Lease Agreement) as well as in the cottage. Had we known, firewood, and any other necessities, would have been made immediately available. We are sorry to hear of your disappointment and hope you reconsider coming back at a future date.
