About the property

"When movie makers went looking for a place to be their GOLDEN POND, they found everything they wanted right here." That's how Yankee Magazine described Squam Lakes. Squam Lakes have been preserved for many years and its property owners have a sense of obligation to maintain the uniqueness Squam has to offer.

New Hampshire's second largest lakes, they are the perfect destination for the outdoorsman, the nature lover, or just a family that needs a break from the every day life, needs to find each other, and learn who each have become. Life travels so fast now a days, we are a distinct break from the ordinary, slow down, sit back, and relax, let the loons sing you to sleep in our lakefront hammock. Enjoy the fresh air, the aroma of pine, or cherry blossom in the air.

This property offers the best of both worlds... we are close to MANY attractions yet far enough away to enjoy a relaxing vacation! In spring, Squam Lakes offer great fishing (trout, bass, salmon) and beautiful scents and colors. During the summer months go for a boat ride and welcome the Bald Eagles and watch their hatchling grow.

Foliage season - the views are breathtaking, the air, crisp. The winter months, skiing is fantastic and you are centrally located to nearly a dozen ski resorts! Snowmachine trails , easily accessed from the property. We welcome you to love and enjoy our home and make family memories that will last a lifetime!

About The Owner

We are a family of 6, we own an automobile dealership in Laconia 20 minutes away, this home is our getaway home. This home is not strictly a rental, therefore, the quality and cleanliness can not be beat! Owners, with others, actually clean the home to be certain cleanliness is optimum! We have chosen to share our home with others when we have obligations pulling us elsewhere. It is such a great spot, we are certain all will enjoy as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Holderness

Squam Lakes have always been a favorite spot for us, being lucky enough to grow up in The Lakes Region of NH, we are fortunate to know the pros and cons of each vacation area. Squam Lakes are greatly preserved, nature is respected on Squam, and we hope to help keep it the unique destination it is. If you are looking to get away from the city, or just "normal everyday life", Squam is perfect! The scenery can not be beat, the lake is patroled so that you still may canoe and kayak and not be run over by a 70' cigarette boat. If you are looking to show off what path in life you have taken, and all you have accumulated, this area is not for you. Here, pack a picnic lunch, explore the islands and coves of Squam, and bring some ben gay because here on Squam we are happy to have you and we will wave to you out on the lake, be prepared! We believe "On Golden Pond" was a great potrayal of what Squam is, an era, thought to have, gone by but it is here alive and well! Sit back, relax and remember vacation times when family was the most important thing in your life. That's what we get out of the property.

What makes this house unique

There is a 100 ft sandy beach 500 ft down the property, you may choose to join other guests at the beach or wade in the crystal waters right off the dock at the end of the deck. A dock could be arranged for a small fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home is truly as beautiful as depicted! The deck is amazing! What a view. We held a family reunion at this lake house and have decided to make it a yearly tradition, the property is so expansive and the beach was lovely, although we liked the option to swim and jump from the dock. We have always loved The Squam Lakes and are so happy to have found a great place to call our home for a week during our treasured family reunion. Thank you to Joe and Lisa for keeping up a superb property and making us feel so welcome.
