About Peter Worthington
Celebrating over 'thirty-six" years of marriage we love sharing our home with other families and individuals that need a rest, or looking to make cherished memories.
Peter Worthington purchased this Cottage in 1991
Why Peter Worthington chose Ashland
As a child, our family spent many years vacationing on Squam, later my wife and I chose to spend our 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 sentiment shared by many local residents.
What makes this Cottage unique
If you prefer clean, comfortable and private 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 for the variety of the wildlife observed daily and watching you own family having good-old-fashion-fun by exploring the waterfront or just catching some rays on the dock! Simple/fun activities become the priority and the laughter is contagious! In winter, ski-mobile trails link from our backdoor while cross-country skiing on the lake and XC trail systems are everywhere. NH's best ski resorts, fine dining and country-pubs are just minutes away.

Peaceful, relaxing getaway
Stillwater provided a peaceful and relaxing getaway for our family of 4, including two boys (ages 12 & 10). The property is not large, but it need not be during the summer months when most time is spent outdoors. The two single kayaks were a nice perk and allowed us to venture out onto Little Squam River. The dock provided for a nice fishing spot and let us pull up our pontoon boat rental for easy loading/unloading. The home itself is tastefully decorated. While A/C isn't a necessity up here in the NH woods, it's nice that it's provided to take that edge of heat and humidity off! The location is nicely situated between most of the activities one would want to do - hiking, water sports, tourist attractions, restaurants, etc.
Thanks to Peter and Sarah for allowing our family to experience this little slice of heaven!
Stillwater Cottage was Adorable and Peaceful
This property was in immaculate condition when we arrived. The owners Sara and Peter were available to help with any questions or concerns but everything was perfect & ready! We even had fresh flowers on our arrival. The property is even better than illustrated on VBRO with a wonderful dock and very easy access with kayaks. The house was clean and well organized with all the amenities of home. We really enjoyed our stay and certainly want to return!
Dear Sharon and Kurt-

We had a great time at the cottage. Comfortable and beautiful view. We would love to go this summer.
Had a great camp fire. Kids enjoyed themselves. Everything we needed was there.
Dear Laurie S. and family,
Thanks for taking the time for the guest review - its invaluable to our prospective guests and an honest confirmation of your satisfaction!
So glad it worked out for you. Wth a few snow events during your stay - skiing must have been great! (did you know skimobile trails run just in front of our property too - bring the sleds!)
We would love to hear from you this year for that "Summer Experience" - the Squam Lakes and Squam Range offers the best of NH and our cottage awaits your family!

Relaxing getaway in an amazing location!
We could not have been happier with our stay at Stillwater! Peter and Sara were wonderful hosts. They truly went above and beyond to make our stay special. My whole family had a relaxing time unplugging and enjoying nature - but still with the comforts of home when we needed them (AC and WiFi). We went kayaking almost daily and enjoyed sitting on the dock. Stillwater is close enough to attractions, restaurants, and the highway - but when at the house, we felt like we were a million miles away. We found the house in pristine condition - evidence of the love that Peter and Sara put into it. We felt very much at home and comfortable during our stay. We highly recommend staying at Stillwater!
Very well kept. Owners very friendly and accomodating
river view with easy access to Little Squam
Thank you for your positive review on our property! I know the weather was less than accommodating the last week of July.
But hopefully you were able to make lots of fond memories just the same with your family and close friends.
Little Slice of Heaven
I have been coming to this property for a number of years now to enjoy the fishing on Squam Lake. The home is so well kept and cozy, the surroundings so beautiful, and the fishing so good that it's tough to leave. Pete and his wife are wonderful people and we now feel like family. The word "stress" does not exist here!
Thanks so much for the great review and especially your kind words. I think it's year three for you? We are so glad to when our friends return and enjoy the comfortable setting we are intentional to offer. Squam Lake is one of America's best and we love sharing our home and waterfront access to its pristine waters.
See you again in June 2019!
