We just spent the night at Squam Lake Inn, and cannot wait to visit again. If i owned an Inn this is exactly what i would create. The 9 rooms are decorated uniquely. We stayed in the Lilac Room. The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were the softest i've slept on. The staff was welcoming, courteous and so... More

Small but nice. Bathroom in the standard room a little tight, with only shower and no counter. Breakfast delicious, but no choices. Free wifi. Overall recommended if you want a small quiet place walking distance to Little Squam Lake.

my wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in the Chucorua room (actually more of a suite because it had a nice little sitting area) in early October 2014 Very comfortable room and bed in a charming inn - not at all 'chintzy' - which is very close to Squam Lake and within 5 minutes walk to the small...

Really enjoyed our overnight stay in the Winnipesaukee Room at Squam Lake Inn last week. The room was cozy but didn't feel too small. We appreciated the incredibly comfortable king size bed and the gluten free cookies available for guests. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious, and breakfast the next morning was even better: french toast with an amazing orange... More

The hotel is nice but what drives my 5 star rating is the disarmingly nice service. Everybody was nice in an effortless way, they did not even se to try: the just are this way and because of that THANK YOU! We stayed in the Holderness room which has the benefit of a shared front porch but whose proximity with... More

We spent 3 nights at Squam Lake Inn at the end of June and it was wonderful! In-laws joined us for the 2nd & 3rd nights and they agreed it was terrific. We had the Squam room on the 2nd floor which was comfortably large with a super comfortable bed, 2 soft arm chairs, a ceiling fan with lightand a... More

We decided to visit Squam Lake, New Hampshire. We selected Squam Lake Inn as our accommodation in the area and were delighted with our two night stay. It has great WIFI, comfortable beds, smallish but stylish rooms, and spotlessly clean. Every staff member we came across was very friendly and always willing to assist. The Inn is a wonderful old...

This little piece of heaven is a great place to stay while driving New England. Every element from the way we where greeted upon arrival (hot tea, warm cookies) to the decor, the cleanliness and the kindness of the staff was beyond exceptional. The restaurant is amazing and the food is flavorful. The only small drawbacks were the size of... More

WE recently spent 3 nights at Squam Lake Inn and wished we could have stayed longer. Molly and the team were very welcoming, nothing was too much, all done with calm efficiency, friendliness and a laugh. On arrival in late afternoon there was cookies and hot apple cider available (OK, this is NOT done every day..) and was just what... More
