  • Authentic Squam Lake Camp Lodge and Schoolhouse

    "Penowee is one of the original, authentic Squam Lake camps built around the turn of the century. Since it was constructed as a summer camp for a private school, the main lodge is located directly on Big Squam waterfront, literally ten feet from the lake. In addition to the main lodge, which has three bedrooms, a large living room, a kitchen, bathroom and a beautiful front porch, the property also includes a schoolhouse with many bedrooms upstairs (including a full bathroom with shower) and a large game room downstairs, which is perfect for guests and for teenage kids who enjoy having their own space, etc. Given its age, Penowee is in very good condition, and while rustic, it is very comfortable and includes all of the basic amenities for a summer stay on the lake. The owners are very helpful and there is a caretaker for the property who is readily available in case of any issues. The setting is pretty private, on a very nice cove for swimming, fishing, and other water sports. The location is close enough to town to be convenient, and far enough away to be a bit out in the woods, with full sun during most of the day. The property is set back enough to be shady on a warm summer day and we spent a great deal of time on the amazing porch for meals and family time together. The main house and schoolhouse can accommodate a large group or family easily and is perfect for a family reunion or family vacation with the kids and grandparents. This property is also dog friendly, and we were able to bring our dogs, which was a great plus and a rare thing on Squam, where many properties are not pet friendly. The kitchen includes all of the basic amenities, wide variety of cooking gear, and the largest frying pan you will ever see. There are two bathrooms in the property, including one in the main house and one in the schoolhouse that includes a shower--hot water was plentiful and there is also a washer/dryer. The dock out front is great and very convenient for swimming, sunning, or just reading or chilling by the water. There is a float with at diving ladder as well, and we docked our rental motorboat there with no issues. Fishing on the cove is very good and kids can catch fish from the dock. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. Good place to go for a real On Golden Pond experience where you can disconnect from the real world and really take advantage of what Squam Lake has to offer. We enjoyed our week long stay and hope to return."

  • Perfect for large families!

    "Our stay was 8/6-8/13/2016. There were 8 adults and 7 children from 6 to 12 and we were never crowded or under foot. The property is divided into a large (Bear) cabin and a smaller (little bear) cabin, they were decorated adorably . Our family get along and we were all looking forward to this time to visit , relax, and have some adventures. The location is beautiful and the proximity to the water was great.Can't say enough about the clear lake water and mountain views. Best sunsets were down at the beach. The house s were well set up with everything you need , linens( of course) you bring yourself. There is a small store (JoJos) a short trip away so what you forget you can find. 20-25 min away is a large grocery for major supplies. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms spotless and you will get the hang of the water temperature adjustments in the showers. We are grilling folks and thankfully our sons brought theirs because one gas grill just won't feed our 15. We ate all meals outside except breakfast as this is a treat. The smell of the pines is heavenly and 2 very long picnic tables accommodated our crew with comfort. We ended our evening with a gathering around the fire pit. Highly recommend this experience to all. Madelyn Mitton was a dream to talk to and was very accessible for any questions. WiFi on the property worked well. Thanks again Mr and Mrs Mitton."

  • RECHARGED

    "Knotty Pine Retreat was the perfect place to recharge the batteries. Location is less than 5 min to Main St. North Conway and it is moments away from a nice relaxing float in the Saco River. If you are planning a float, make sure you call around to the Saco float companies and check water flow. For the hiker/climber it's minutes from Cathedral Ledge and Diana's bath. Far enough away from all the chaos and tourism of North Conway to really make you feel like you are on vacation. Bedrooms and Bathrooms are in good condition and for those who don't want to eat out every night, the kitchen is in great cooking order. Overall, if you are looking for a place to relax that has the comforts of home and access to all the adventures that N. Conway has to offer, then this is the place. Owners are great to work with and very accommodating. Thank you for letting us enjoy your house on our long weekend! We will definitely be back and hopefully soon."

  • The Perfect Moutain Getaway

    "Our family of four just spent the past week in Lori's unit and loved it! Everything we could have possibly needed was all right within arms reach. When we arrived, the unit was immaculate, with fresh towels and bed linens at the ready. The girls had their own room that they immediately made their own with the boatload of toys and stuffies that made the trip. Mom and Dad were equally thrilled to have a large master suite with a full bathroom. The unit itself was spacious, nicely laid out and well stocked. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and more. The air condititioning was more than adequate and a God send after a day at Story Land. There were also fans in every room for those night when the air conditioning was a bit too much. The Club House had a lot of downtime activities to keep the girls busy, including a hot tub and heating pool. The playground nestled behind the Club House was a nice quiet little oasis for the girls to burn off some steam. The Staff, both at the Club House and around the grounds, were always cheery and helpful. Location wise, it was close to everything. Story Land and Cranmore Mountain were just minutes away, as was Echo Lake and plenty of places to eat. We pretty much had the Margherita Grill on speed dial ... Given the chance to stay in Lori's unit again, we'd do so without hesitation. Everything went without a hitch and that made our vacation that much more enjoyable."
