Our Suggestions for a Perfect Day on Squaw Cove: Wake to the sunrise and the mist rising over the narrows. Take a morning dip in the crystal clear water. Sip your morning coffee on the dock and enjoy the vista of the Squam Range. Fish unlimited wooded shoreline, spend the day on the lake or up a nearby mountain. Take a leisurely afternoon nap in the hammock at the waters edge. Bbq on the deck within steps of the waters edge. Take an early evening kayak to the far side of the cove to hear loons and maybe see a moose. Finish the day with a good book, puzzles or family games. If this is your view of a perfect day, you will fall in love with this place as we have.

Our Favorite Excursions: Walk to trailhead of East Rattlesnake Lookout trail. Short drive to trailhead for Mt. Morgan and Mt. Percival. Breakfast at Mocha Rising Internet Cafe.

Located next to conservation land on secluded Squaw Cove, this property is one of the most private you will find. Your neighbors in the cove are Loon, Moose, Blue Heron and an occasional kayaker or fisherman. Through no wake zone and 2 sets of narrows, boaters can access the many islands, coves and public beaches of Squam lake. A short walk leads to the trailhead of the less traveled Butterworth Trail up East Rattlesnake Mountain, to a beautiful overlook of Squam lake.

A short drive to Center Sandwich: a village from the past... small cafe, tennis courts, and fairgrounds - home of the renowned Sandwich Fair... also has a library with wireless i-net service, the 'Industries' a trading post for local artisans, several other galleries/ antique shoppes, and the Corner House restaurant.

To the west are the Squam Lakes Science Center, a modern public boat launch, the quaint village of Holderness, the local golf course, and waterfront dining at Walter's Basin.

Other Activities: canoeing, kayaking, powerboating, wildlife, birding
