Beautiful setting! We were up in the dead of winter and had prob with the heat which they did fix after several freezing hours. Not enough blankets! We’d love to go back when it’s warmer.

Roomy cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has a great living room space with comfy couches, a fireplace and a large window looking out at the lake. It also has a great outdoor area for hanging out or engaging in sports activities. We took advantage of the kayaks to paddle out onto the lake to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage view of the mountains surrounding the lake. There are also plenty of great hiking opportunities within a short driving distance.

3 night get away!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at Squam Lake! It was nice that we could bring our dog! She loved it!

Did some fishing, we weren't very successful! Kinda bummed about that. The water was probably too cold!

The place was very nice! I can't imagine that you can use much more than what they have provided!

We we're able to get the tv to work. Tom did tell us to call, we chose not to!

Maybe some simple tv instructions, left at the cottage, would be helpful!

Would go again!

Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5

Overall the experience was very good, some wild swings in the weather during the week, certainly not the owners fault, we picked the week. Location was convenient, plenty of room in the cottage and well equipped, great for boaters. Could use better water pressure in the shower.

Still a 5 star locale for our purposes.

Heavenly Squam

  • 5 of 5

My Wife Debbe and I loved our second visit to this Squam lake retreat. The peaceful quiet of the area at this time of year was what we had returned for. The fishing for smallmouth bass was pretty good too! Our stay of three weeks only made us to want to stay longer. We hope to return soon.
