This home is unique in that it is two houses connected so each house has adequate space to spread out and have privacy yet big enough for all to congregate to share meals and play games.

Overall, we had a wonderful time at this vacation home. The location was great and everyone we met at the beach was very friendly and accommodating. There was plenty of room in the house for everyone and we were all very comfortable. The owners were responsive to all of our questions and extremely helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
The houses are great! We had 14 of us and kids and adults. The rules can be a little challenging but in all honesty - we have rented for 5 years now. Every year we practically have the beach to ourselves Mon-Fri. It is an amazing place! Linens and house are clean, well stocked, and comfortable. Lawn and fire pit are level and safe for our kids and elderly grandmother. The deck and screen porches are a great places to enjoy the evening.
Overall, my family had a wonderful experience up on the Lake. The house was certainly large enough to deal with 9 adults and 4 children. The lake is a short distance down the road and there is a nice beach owned by the community in which the house resides. On the negative side, the house was not well maintained. there was a disturbing amount of garbage under the porch, that had been left for quite a long time that created a vile smell. Also, the neighbors clearly have a problem with renters. It was obvious from the moment we arrived that they did not want us there. They followed us to the beach and made remarks about allowing our kids on the dock and raking sand castles. It was annoying. With that said, the neighbors are just neighbors and can be easily ignored.
My extended family (parents, cousins, siblings and spouses) spent a week at this property and had a great time. The owner is very easy to reach and answered all my questions. The houses are clean and have all the amenities listed. The porches are perfect for chilling and the beach is just a hop skip and a jump away. No need to drive it is right there! We played games on the front lawn and there was plenty of seating for us during meals. The screen porches are welcoming and relaxing. The bedrooms were nice and big. We are planning on coming back again next year because we had so much fun and everyone really loved the house! - Some fun things that we did were: Polar Caves, Squam Lake Nature Science center, Monkey Trunks, Drive-in theater and the West Rattlesnake Mt Eagle Cliff Train in Squam lake (I would recommend all the above as well :-))
This house was amazing. We rented the main house and there was more than enough room for the 8 of us. We didn't cook a lot at the house but the kitchen is fully equipped. We would have loved to have stayed the entire week rather than just the weekend. We would definitely recommend staying here. Contrary to the previous comment, we didn't have any issues with the other people on the beach at the lake.
The description of this vacation rental does not give in details, the VERY strict rules that the homeowners who live on this lake have for "visitors". The lake is owned by an association, and according to the people who own homes there, this is the only rental property on this part of the lake. The people who lived on this association did NOT welcome us. We were even asked to move (we were 3 mothers and 2 babies) to the left side of the beachfront because the homeowners get the middle and the right. If we had known about these rules, we would never had rented here. The home was not worth the money or the aggravation that the neighbors gave us, and we were not a rowdy group! I would not recommend this rental property and if you do rent here please ask for a specific list of all the rules that you must follow if you do!
