Secluded Paradise on Squam Lake
Submitted: October 19, 2011

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.
