WATERFRONT COTTAGE, SCREENED PORCH, DOCK, SQUAM LAKE

Squam Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Well-equipped Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, Loft w/Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, Sleeps 6+

A tranquil water-front cottage know as 'Stillwater'. A truly comfortable home on the river to Squam Lakes, providing easy lake access for power boats, kayaks or canoes! The perfect family retreat or destination for a romantic get-away.

Magnificent natural views are just out the front door of this cottage and we can boast as being one of the annual nesting spots of a Loon pair just yards away. Bald Eagles are known to fish at our waterfront too! Superior hiking trails abound in the Squam Mountain Range nearby for all abilities. In winter - Skimobile trails link from the back door!

Relax and read a book, or listen to the buzz of a hummingbird or the splash of a kingfisher, as you watch a quiet parade of boats making their way to and from a day on the lake. Canoe the quiet and pristine estuaries of the river or spawning brook waters which provides some of the best large/small mouth bass fishing in the USA ! (According to Field & Stream Magazine) Rainbow's, Salmon, Wallaby are common to our waters.

Stillwater Cottage provides the casual comfort as you make family memories or entertain good friends on the screened-in porch where there is always a breeze. Later retreat to the centrally air-conditioned and unexpected comforts of a home with most of today's modern amenities. On warm summer nights that air conditioning is so welcome and so refreshing.

Stillwater is such a unique blessing to all who come to discover NH's Squam Lakes!

About The Owner

Celebrating over 'thirty-three years' of marriage, we love sharing our home with other families that need a rest, or looking to make cherished memories.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1991

Why The Owner chose Squam Lake

As a child, I spent many years with my family vacationing on Squam, later my wife and I chose to spend quality time at a place that tugged on our hearts all week. We admire the unspoiled natural beauty that is unique to Squam Lakes area. Once you have been here. . . you'll understand the saying 'Forever Squam.' A feeling shared by the local inhabitants.

What makes this cottage unique

If you prefer clean and comfortable then Stillwater Cottage is the place for you! The close proximity to the water's edge is especially unique and allows the observation of nature at it's best. Being on Squam River is incredibly entertaining of both the variety of the wildlife observed daily and watching family having good old fashion fun by exploring or just catching some rays! Simple and fun activities abound and laughter is contagious! In winter, ski-mobile trails link from our backdoor. NH's best ski mountains are minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a wonderful week! Your lovely house is fresh and clean and is the best equipped we've ever rented - right down to the kitchen utensils,clothes-pins and Scotch-tape. . .yours is the first place I've been that has everything! We'll be in contact for another week!

Awesome location, and great cabin!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was really fantastic. The owner was very responsive to questions and very professional. It was good that there was a home phone and wifi since no one had service, but it's such a tranquil little spot. It's just a few minutes to get onto little Squam Lake and we rented a pontoon to really enjoy the lakes. Thanks for such a wonderful stay!!

Our kayaking outing for 2014

  • 5 of 5
Our group of kayakers used this property as our home base for visiting area ponds, lakes and rivers, of which there are many. We found that the cottage more than met our
needs. It was clean throughout and provided comfortable sleeping quarters for the four
of us. We very much enjoyed the screened in porch for afternoon gatherings and dinners. The honking geese, quacking ducks, chirping chickadees and hummingbirds
all added to the enjoyment. We did have dinner one evening at the Common Man which
the owners had recommended. Interesting items on the menu, fair prices, and half price
wine the night we went!
We would certainly return to "Stillwater Cottage" for another summer kayaking adventure!

Comfy Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Feels just like your own cabin. Beautiful setting on the river with convenient launch point for kayaks. Easy paddling on the river (one hour to dam and back) and around Little Squam Lake (two hours to circumnavigate). Big Squam Lake is also accessible from the canal from Little Squam. Picturesque covered bridge at the entrance from the river to Little Squam. Cabin is well equipped. Plenty of space in the bedroom and comfortable bed. WiFi worked well. Good instructions, lots of tourist info. Peter, the owner, was very responsive, helpful and considerate of our needs. Very quick to get to other nearby sights / trails / restaurants. Late May in NH was like the Spring we had in the south in March, with the trees fresh, bright green. Overall it was a restorative and relaxing getaway for the two of us.

Charming and cozy Squam cottage, perfect for quiet retreat and family time!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during our stay at Stillwater cottage. Peter and Sara were such warm, welcoming and generous hosts - they assisted with anything we needed during our stay and had wonderful recommendations for the area as well as tons of printed material in the house for things to do. We loved the house and space, well equipped and cozy. Our favorite spot was definitely the screened-in porch overlooking a beautiful view onto Squam River. Perfect for birdwatching, reading, having meals together or just enjoying the scenery. The house was incredibly well stocked - the kitchen had everything we needed and more, there were board games (we had a fierce game of scrabble), a TV and DVD player so we could even have movie nights together in the cozy sitting room upstairs and a gas grill on the patio. The river is also easily accessible from the house for kayaking or boating. Thanks again Sara and Peter! We had a wonderful time!!
