We really enjoyed our stay and the cottage was very well maintained and located right on the waterfront. There was plenty of dock space with two docks and the waterfront was great for wading or swimming with stairs that lead right into the water. This is a very convenient location to the small, quaint downtown area and we walked there most mornings for coffee and exceptionally good breakfast sandwiches. Marinas are very close so boat rental was a breeze. Bass fishing was exceptional and this is an absolutely beautiful lake with many large bays. The owner (Jeffrey) was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating. Would certainly recommend this as a nice "getaway".
Spacious Just enough modern conveniences but still charming so you felt you were at a lake house . The hardwood floors throughout were great everyone loved their beds .We were able to have cookout every night which enabled us to enjoy the splendor of the lake A real charm can't wait to come back. Also loved that we could walk to the general store and museum all an extra plus !
We really enjoyed our time on Squam Lake this year in this perfectly situated cottage. We have been going to Squam for 8 years and this cottage gave us everything we could ask for. Steps to the water, a view looking right down Big Squam and it was just redone inside. Waking up in the morning and having our coffee on the edge of the lake is a great way to start the day. Judy made it easy to rent the cottage and everything was as it was stated. We will return!
Lot's of sleeping room for guests. Great as a home base for outdoors activities. Less room for hanging in front of the tv or reading, but we were there during the winter when the porch and front yard was was out of commission. Interior is new and very clean. :)
As overseas visitors, we were a bit nervous that the lake and house wouldn't live up to expectations (and there was the "On Golden Pond" pilgramage element too!). But from the moment we arrived and saw the steps down into the lake, we fell in love. The children spent most of the time in the kayaks, swimming or reading in the swing chair. I spent a fair bit of time toasting myself on the swimming platform, and my husband gave us plenty of video material with his paddle board attempts. We also went to the White Mountains and did the Rattlesnake walk.
The house is comfortable and very well equipped and you are in easy access of the town (and I was delighted that I was able to source my essential daily cappuccino). As another reviewer has said, the owners were very helpful and responsive.
Will always remember the magical still mornings, especially the one when I had the pleasure of being joined by two loons during my swim.
What a wonderful house on Squam Lake. Literally right on the water - parents of littles should keep this in mind for safety reasons. The home is spotless. Walking distance to the Nature Center and shopping/boat rental area. We look forward to returning.
