Historic Squam Lake Summer Cottage

This lovely house accommodated our three generation family reunion beautifully. The view from the screened porch, large spaces for dining and many activities, and the peaceful Squam Lake dock/ swimming cove a mile away were all unique. We kept our kayaks down at the boathouse all week.

The house is well-equipped and the many beds are comfortable. The host was welcoming and responsive to our arrangements and questions. We knew Squam Lake well already, but he would be very helpful to folks who are not familiar with the area.

My family with small children and extended family rented this home for a last minute trip July 4th week. We really loved the home and the area. Every time I walked thru the living room and dining room I made sure to take in the amazing view of the mountains. The screened in porch was our favorite afternoon spot. The dining room is perfect for large family dinners with the view and sunsets you will dine for hours. We had lovely dinners out in the area, delicious upscale picnic food from the squam lake store, organic veggies every day from Owens Farm, local hikes and hikes just a short drive to the Franconia Notch area, tennis in the mornings and a couple days of peaceful boat rides. It is such a peaceful lake compared to many in the area. The homes are built back from the water to blend with the landscape. True natural beauty.

The owners were extremely helpful with all information regarding the home and area prior to the visit. The home is very special place. Not for someone looking for a modern home or one that is not free of an occasional summer bug or two.

Highly recommended!!
