Property description

A tranquil water-front cottage know as 'Stillwater'. A truly comfortable home on the river to Squam Lakes, providing easy lake access for power boats, kayaks or canoes! The perfect family retreat or destination for a romantic get-away.

Magnificent natural views are just out the front door of this cottage and we can boast as being one of the annual nesting spots of a Loon pair just yards away. Bald Eagles are known to fish at our waterfront too! Superior hiking trails abound in the Squam Mountain Range nearby for all abilities. In winter - Skimobile trails link from the back door!

Relax and read a book, or listen to the buzz of a hummingbird or the splash of a kingfisher, as you watch a quiet parade of boats making their way to and from a day on the lake. Canoe the quiet and pristine estuaries of the river or spawning brook waters which provides some of the best large/small mouth bass fishing in the USA ! (According to Field & Stream Magazine) Rainbow's, Salmon are common to our waters. (anglers visit: www.squamlakes.org for a complete list)

Stillwater Cottage provides the casual comfort as you make family memories or entertain good friends on the screened-in porch where there is always a breeze. Later retreat to the centrally air-conditioned and unexpected comforts of a home with most of today's modern amenities. On warm summer nights that air conditioning is so welcome and so refreshing.

Stillwater is such a unique blessing to all who come to discover NH's Squam Lakes!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Celebrating over 'thirty-four years' of marriage, we love sharing our home with other families that need a rest, or looking to make cherished memories.

Why the Owner Chose Ashland, NH, USA:
As a child, our family spent many years vacationing on Squam, later my wife and I chose to spend our quality time at a place that tugged on our hearts all week. We admire the unspoiled natural beauty that is unique to Squam Lakes area. Once you have been here. . . you'll understand the saying 'Forever Squam.' A feeling shared by the local inhabitants.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
If you prefer clean and comfortable then Stillwater Cottage is the place for you! The close proximity to the water's edge is especially unique and allows the observation of nature at it's best. Being on Squam River is incredibly entertaining of both the variety of the wildlife observed daily and watching family having good old fashion fun by exploring the waterfront or just catching some rays on the dock! Simple and fun activities become the priority and laughter is contagious! In winter, ski-mobile trails link from our backdoor and cross-country skiing on the lake and trail systems is very popular. NH's best ski resorts, fine dining and pubs are just minutes away.
