This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home is the great place for a family getaway. The 4th bedroom above the garage has a full size bed and pull out sofa. It contains a TV with DVD's of many popular movies. The house is wifi enabled but the cell reception is weak. Sometimes a blessing! The private sandy beach is a great place to play or relax on a beautiful summer day. Jump off the diving board, wade into the river, or take one of the 2 canoes out for an adventure. For the boating enthusiasts we have a secure dock. The Squam River leads directly to Little Squam lake and then Big Squam for a day on the water. The long driveway is paved and perfect for bikes and trikes for the toddlers. The spacious gardens provide additional space for outdoor games or to shoot hoops in the driveway. The big wrap around porch is a great place to enjoy the views or have an outdoor family dinner.
4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with private beach, large deck, and dock on Squam River

great location, quiet
Enjoyed our stay. Place was clean. We ate our meals outside on the deck - it was so nice out there. Great location, would be great if we had a boat, but we loved being away from things but close enough to enjoy a quick outing for a nice meal or to get supplies.
This is a great place to get away.
This is a nice house to stay in. It was clean and has a nice kitchen with everything we needed to prepare a meal. The upstairs room over the garage was great for watching movies. Good location. It's on the river so it takes about 10 minutes to get out to Little Squam but it's nice & quite there. Fishing was really great near Potato Island on Big Squam and there was an abundant number of small fish off the dock. Fishing bait was close to the house, just down the road. The house has a nice sandy beach plus the public beach is within walking distance. We would definitely consider staying here again. Thank you to the Sharkey's for sharing your lovely house with us. We had a great time.
Rest & relaxation
Our group has rented houses in this area for four years and this was by far the best. The house was well set up for two couples and their teenage children. We could relax and enjoy the scenery, take a ride on the one family's boat to Big or Little Squam, or take an easy drive to the area attractions. The small beach is ideal for watching the area wildlife. Several restaurants are just a short drive away and we visited most of our favorites during the week-The Common Man, The Mug, Biedermans and Walter's Basin. Best of all was feeling months of stress just melt away. The owners are great about keeping in touch both before and during the stay. We hope to come back next year.
The beautiful lakes region of NH is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts year round. This waterfront property provides a great summer getaway for those looking to relax as well as those looking for more adventure. In the summer enjoy boating on Little and Big Squam lakes, canoeing on Squam River, hiking, and swimming. In the winter, get on the snow in under an hour at any of three major NH ski areas. After enjoying the sun or snow have dinner and drinks at The Common Man restaurant minutes away in the center of Ashland.
