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.
