Fabulous spot. Perfect for family vacation. Sara and her family are wonderful hosts!
awesome views, easy access to the lake, local amenities, and other venues such as hiking.
takes you away from the demands of every day life
We had a fun week.
The dock is big enough for both of our boats while leaving plenty of room for jumping into the water. The float beyond it makes a nice destination for swimming. We enjoyed the fire pit, with all the chairs around it, for making s'mores. The cottage provided everything we needed, even a fan in each bedroom and plenty of extra blankets.(nights on the lake can be chilly even though the day is hot) The kitchen is well equipped. It all contributed to an easy going week.
Nice outdoor property right on the lake, we had a lovely week
We had a great week overall. We loved the location, although prefer Big Squam to Little Squam, however the house does have an amazing site on the water's edge. The house suited us fine, but overall I would say the house is a bit run-down --- it fits a lot of people so that is a plus, but the beds/mattresses are old, and the furniture is weathered/old, and the kitchen is small. The nicest room is the porch but it is overcrowded with too many old couches that feel worn/dusty. I would say the house was moderately clean.
Great location! Large enough to fit our whole family!
We had a great vacation on Squam Lake! The location was ideal! We rented a pontoon boat and were able to boat, fish, and tube. The kids had a blast! There are some great restaurants nearby but we did most of our meals at the house. We have 7 kids and they all were able to have their own space! The house is 1970's decor that makes it very comfortable! The Blenkhorn's were great and very responsive to any question or problem we had. I would highly recommend this vacation home!
Perfect lakeside vacation!
We had a great week at the lake house. The house was comfortable for our group of 4 adults and 3 kids, with rooms to spare. The location is superb - quiet enough for the loons to pop by for a surprise visit, yet just a quick drive away from the town where we could get our fill of espresso drinks, great baked goods, and pretty much anything else we needed. There are plenty of activities in the area suitable for all ages. We would highly recommend the Loon Tour which goes out on the lake every Monday and Friday afternoon - reserve your tickets at the nature center. The kitchen is well stocked - we had dinner at the house every night. Except for a couple of rainy days, we enjoyed sitting outside by the fire pit watching the beautiful sunsets and the occasional fireworks from across the lake. Sara and her father were extremely responsive to any question we had and a pleasure to deal with. I don't think you can ask for more - we will be back!
