Guestbook comments from the owner
I'm happy to report that my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay (twice!) in your vacation home. You had redone the kitchen since the last time we were there and everything was in good condition. I think it is a special property because of its location and
the decks, etc.
Our great great great grandfather purchased land on Squam Lake in 1890 which consisted of a seasonal fishing camp and an abandoned farmstead. We built this vacation home on part of that land in 1974. Our family vacations here each year, and we welcome all feedback on how to continuously improve the property for our guests
