About the Property

House-3 Bedrooms/1.5 bathrooms:Guesthouse-2 bedrooms:Sleeps 8 (All Non-Smoking).

The original family dating back to before 1914 still owns this charming, house, guest cottage, and screened in sitting porch right on Squam Lake. You’ll want to return year after year (as many of our guests do) to this peaceful, woodland, waterfront, get-away with spectacular views of Squam Lake and unparalleled privacy. The focal point of this single-level, “L” shaped house is a warm and comfortable living room with fireplace for which firewood is furnished. For bedrooms, there is a master bedroom with a queen bed and single bed; a back bedroom with two double beds, and a second small back bedroom with two single beds. Both bathrooms are in the house. Steps away from the house, right next to the shore is the guest cottage with two small rooms each containing a double bed and a single bed. You will enjoy a screened in lakeside sitting porch, screened in porch off cabin, deck, and dock. The water is clean and great for fishing, swimming and boating. We furnish pillows and blankets, and require that you bring your own linens and towels.

Property Description: We are nestled in a cove with a view of Great Island. The edge of the shore is shallow and sandy – a perfect way for new swimmers and young children to enjoy the Lake. You can canoe about 1.5 miles to Heron Cove in Chamberlain-Reynolds Memorial Forest. It offers several beaches and about 4 miles of hiking trails perfect for adults and children to enjoy. The Chamberlain-Reynolds Memorial Forest is also accessible by car - a 5 minute drive. Bowman and Moon Islands are a 1 mile paddle and have small beaches. Adults need a NH fishing license to fish in the lake. There are many restaurants in Holderness and in Meredith, and stores in Holderness, Meredith and Center Harbor.

Lake Description: Squam is where the movie 'On Golden Pond' starring Henry Fonda and Jane Fonda and Katherine Hepburn was filmed. Our house is a short kayak or canoe paddle from the island where the movie was filmed. The lake is quite beautiful and interesting to explore. If you are motor boating, watch out for the rocks - they are well marked, but plentiful. A vessel powered by 25 horsepower or more does require the operator to have a Safe Boater Education Certificate. You can launch larger boats across the street from the Science Center in Holderness, smaller boats from a launch on the property, and canoes and very small boats can be rolled off our dock. The best view of the whole lake is from the top of Rattlesnake Mountain which is 25 minute drive.

Other Attractions: There are lots of mountains in the area which are great to climb or ski within a short drive (Waterville Valley ~30 miles). There are easy hikes such as Rattlesnake, and challenging ones like Mt. Washington. Rattlesnake has a spectacular view of Squam Lake, and takes the average adult 30 minutes to climb and offers the best view for the effort. Other favorites are: the Welsh-Dicky Loop Trail; Mount Morgan and Mount Percival which are a bit more difficult. Kids love the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center in Holderness which features animal and educational exhibits. Families will also enjoy the Meredith Children’s Museum which has a pretend play store, giant bubble maker, play castle, and more. If you need pampering, a thirty mile drive takes you to Lincoln, New Hampshire to the Mountain Club on Loon which features a full service spa and health club with pool, jacuzzi and steam room – day passes are available. If yoga calls you, North Sandwich (15 miles) offers the Dragonfly Yoga Barn.
