Squam Lake house description

Welcome to the lakefront vacation house known affectionatly as “Camp Kusumpy. This spacious 6 bedroom home on the shores of Squam Lake offers an ideal setting for a family or group vacation. The house sits just steps from the shoreline, and offers views of the lake and mountain from most rooms, from the expansive deck and screened in porch in front of the house, and from the 50' long dock. The house comes equipped with 5 kayaks for your enjoyment.

Four reasons why the house is popular among vacationers:

1) Waterfront location in a quiet cove with 300+ yards of private shoreline, with a long dock for swimming, a swimming raft, boating and fishing.
2) Accommodates large groups with ease - with four bedrooms for couples, plus two large bunk rooms with four beds each - perfect for kids!
3) Entertaining mix of modern amenities (WIFI, Dish TV , 6 burner/2 oven gas stove), old classics (collection of board games, bumper pool table), plus a private tennis court and rustic charm
4) Offer great space, privacy and value for big groups vs comparable options. Lots of indoor and outdoor space to spread out in

The house has something for everyone in your group. Whether you are enjoying coffee on the dock as the mist rises off the lake, having lunch on the picnic table on the lakefront deck, taking a swim, playing a round of tennis on the private har-tru clay court, taking an afternoon nap in the hidden hammock, playing one of many board games or bumper pool with the kids, sitting on the porch at sunset, or gathering around the fireplace after dinner, this is the place where you and your family will enjoy a memorable vacation together.

This lakefront house is an outstanding location for your vacation. It sits in a calm, protected cove on Squam Lake, with a long dock that will accommodate power boats, a small fleet of kayaks for your enjoyment, and a raft to swim to.

Its location on Squam Lake's southeastern shore provides easy access to a number of attractions and activities nearby. The Squam Range offers mountain hiking trails, and fast moving rivers and brooks. Shopping and restaurants can be found in Sandwich and Center Harbor, both just 4 miles away. There is a golf course in nearby Meredith, a Science Center in Holderness, and quaint country villages all within easy reach.

Squam Lake is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, waterskiing and fishing. A wealth of coves and islands can be explored by kayak. For hikers, the Squam Range, White mountains and Presidential Range offer trails ranging from 30 minutes to all-day excursions. The Koenig Wildlife Reserve down the road and Loon Center are perfect for bird enthusiasts, while the Squam Lakes Science Center's collection of raptors, otters, bobcats, bears, and even mountain lions is a great spot for the whole family.

Should it rain during your vacation, the house is well stocked with board games, books, a bumper pool table and other diversions. There is a movie theater 15 minutes away in Meredith, and Fun Park and Arcade Games at Wiers Beach in Laconia to keep everyone happy. If you don't feel like cooking, the nearby town of Center Harbor has an upscale restaurant, pizzerias, Chinese food and diners. Further afield you can find scores of activities and dining options in Meredith, Laconia, and Conway.

We provide a comprehensive activities guide to all renters.
