My wife and I (small dog too), spent 3 nights at Cottage Place in a first floor suite. We chose this place based on location in the NH lakes region and Trip Advisor reviews. It met our needs including a view of Little Squam Lake, easy access to a private beach (a walk across a well traveled road), cleanliness and... More

I had been going here when the place was called "Black Horse" and when these owners bought it- they really spruced it up. Everything is fantastic. The beach is great- although you do have to cross a busy road- in the 18 years i had been going there- this has never been an issue. Its really not that busy. We... More

My boyfriend and I just stayed here for our first time at Squam Lake. The cottage was adorable and simple. We were in Cottage One which had a direct view of the lake from our porch. They had just put tables on the beach when we got there so we were able to eat dinner on the beach which was... More

My husband and I recently spent two nights in the main building. Sue was very, very pleasant and helpful during our stay. The vibe was very relaxed- no muss, no fuss. The facilities are across the street from the lake which was fine for adults (but would, of course), require caution and supervision when traveling with children. Our room was... More

We recently spent two nights with our little girl at Cottage Place. Our cottage was lovely, really cute and traditional but with all the things that was needed. Loved sitting out on the porch on an evening and there are some nice things to do nearby. Our little girl loved the swing slide set and the proximity and access to... More

In the cottage tradition, clean and slightly eclectic, that's the cottage part. I stay there for a week each summer while I teach a boatbuilding class in the area. I always look forward to the stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the kitchen has everything I need to get an early breakfast on the table. I've not stayed... More

To make a long story short, my wife and I were at the lakes region to spend an anniversary get away at our family's cabin near Cottage Place. A miscommunication meant the cabin was occupied by a family member! We left our cabin in search of a place to stay. Our first, and last stop was at Cotten Place. My... More

Just got back from Cottage Place after spending beautiful, relaxing week. If you are looking for five star hotels and five star restaurants, this is not a place, but if you are looking for quiet charm, cozy atmosphere, beautiful lake beach, nice hiking and biking trails and nice little NH towns of Ashland and Holderness (again, no five stars, but...

We had the most wonderful week...hated to leave. Loved opening our cottage door and walking out to a beautiful beach. We swam every day of our stay; our son loved the floating raft. The view is absolutely beautiful, and it's so peaceful, sitting on the porch, watching the loons "fish" for their lunch. We'll definitely return next summer, and I'm... More
