Squam Lake has movie star attraction

The star location of the movie "On Golden Pond", Squam Lake forms part of New Hampshire's spectacular Lakes Region. Over the years, the area has become a mecca for bird lovers, who come to spot the resident feathered friends, such as bald eagles, common loons, and great blue herons. A waterfront Squam Lake vacation rental makes a great base for various outdoor activities, including fishing, sailing, and the hiking trails of Rattlesnake Mountain. Don't miss the bobcats and mountain lions in the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, or a sunset boat cruise from the main town of Holderness.

Things to do

Bear-ing up on Squam Lake's nature

Opened in 1966, the Squam Lake Natural Science Center in Holderness is an educational and fun nature center. A major family attraction in the Lakes Region, the nature center is open from May to November and offers varied attractions. Follow the Gephart Trail through mature forests and marshland where you may spot black bear, mountain lion, and bobcat. Or take a Squam Lake cruise to spot river otters and raptors. Don't miss an hour or so in the center's attractive Kirkwood Gardens, which has a cafe and an art gallery.

Activities

Old-fashioned fun in New Hampshire's Lakes Region

The New Hampshire Lakes Region is popular with the active set. Famed for its hiking trails up Rattlesnake Mountain, or the scenic shoreline walks around the lake, the area is especially popular during the colorful fall period when the trees look spectacular. Book a Squam Lake vacation rental right on the beach and have full access to the region's lake adventures, including sailing and fishing. If you're more into science than sailboats, head to Holderness, the lake's main town, and the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center. After dark, dine out in one of Holderness' restaurants or kick back with a brew from a local craft brewery.

Weather

Ice, ice baby - Squam Lake is a year-round adventure

New Hampshire's Lakes Region attracts a loyal band of visitors all year round. The warm summer months are naturally the most popular, when endless days of sunshine and balmy temperatures last from June until September. Fall is the next most popular season to visit. The fall foliage is some of the prettiest in the state and Squam Lake vacation rentals can get booked up quickly. In winter, temperatures drop rapidly, the lake freezes over in parts, and snowfall is more than likely, so pack warm layers.

Natural features

Rattlesnake Mountain has a real bite

Located a 2-hour drive north of Boston, and just south of the White Mountain National Forest, Squam Lake is part of New Hampshire's beautiful Lakes Region. A big draw for hikers is West Rattlesnake Mountain, which boasts a variety of rugged trails for every level of hiker, many with sweeping scenic views of Squam Lake. Old Bridle Path is one of the most popular hiking routes. Lined with pine forests and wildflowers, hikers may spot moose and black bears, as American bald eagles soar overhead.
