FAMILY-FRIENDLY HOME ON SQUAM LAKE WITH LARGE PRIVATE BEACH

Squam Lake House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, bonus room, large childrens room, sleeps 12

The 4+-bedroom house, fully insulated and heated for year-round usage, was designed by local architect Bill Mead. It has 1800 inside square feet, plus two porches, one a 12x18 screened porch, and two garages. It comprises a Master Bedroom with queen-size bed and full bath and walk-in closet, a Guest Room with twin beds, a Small Bedroom with queen bed, a Big Room with a four twin beds (perfect for kids), a Study/Bonus Room with a sleep sofa; as well as a Living Room with fireplace, Kitchen, Dining Area, and Screened Porch. The house can accommodate 10 adults or 8 adults and several children.

The beach, at 250 feet, is arguably the largest on Squam Lake. Located facing Great and Bowman Islands, just outside Great Island Narrows, it is both private and easily accessible to the entire lake. The beach is about 200 feet from the back porch, mostly across a board walkway.

The house was built in the 1970s and has not been updated, so don’t expect granite counters, modern appliances or brightly finished hard woods. Besides the master bath, there is a bathroom upstairs, quite small though with a tub/shower combo; and a half bath on the first floor under the stairs. Carpeting, paint, furniture, and kitchen appliances are relatively old, but functional.

Three Generations of Our Family Had a Great Time

  • 5 of 5
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.

Great Lake House for Families w/ kids!

  • 4 of 5
The house and beach were exactly as described, with plenty of room for a big family group. The beds were made and the house was clean. The sandy beach was perfect for young kids, the dock was new, and all other features were as promised. The old canoe was patched, but still floated. The kayak was in better shape, and I used it every day. I even saw a loon -- from a respectful distance! -- when kayaking in the cove one morning. A magical experience, floating sliently and watching the loon, before paddling quietly away. We heard the loons calling in the mornng as well. We also saw deer, the loud chipmunk who owns the patio, and too many birds to count. (Also a raccoon or bear determined to get into the trash.) There were blueberry bushes to provide a snack at the beach. We enjoyed eating on the screen porch, walking and jogging up the road, and heading over to Center Harbor for dinner at Canoe's. The kids loved getting ice-cream at the local ice-cream parlor in Center Harbor, which was super family friendly as well (I think it was Dewey's).

The owners were easily available by phone ahead of time. They answered all my questions promptly. They were very nice.

We only had two issues. One was that the boardwalk path down to the beach was overgrown, and the sandy beach was covered in leaves and pine needles when we arrived. We had to do a lot of loping off of braches and clearing of cobwebs before the boardwalk path was clear. We had some windy and rainy days, and our painstakingly cleared beach was soon covered again in leaves in pine needles. (Must be its natural state.)

The wireless internet worked very well, but I would recommend bringing your own laptop, since the computer at the house is pretty slow.

We are stilll awaiting the return of our security deposit, but it hasn't been a week since we left yet.

All in all, we had a great time and we have very happy memories. We would go back again and recommend the property.
