We had a fun week.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location! Large enough to fit our whole family!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Nice outdoor property right on the lake, we had a lovely week

  • 3 of 5

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.

Excellent location. Beautiful views of the lake. The lake is pristine. Great dock for hanging out.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time on little squam.

Basically went from the screened in porch to the dock for 7 days.

Swam and fished off the dock. The house was very clean & comfortable. The owners are extremely gracious.

Would highly recommend a stay.

If you bring a boat put in at "Babes" at the covered bridge.
