We just returned from 10 days in Maine and New Hampshire, with 2 nights at the Squam Lake Inn. This place is great! The inn is situated within easy walking distance of Holderness and access to Squam Lake and Little Squam. There is no direct access to the lake from the inn, but that appeared rare everywhere. Holderness doesn't have... More

My wife and I just stayed at Squam Lake Inn for the weekend while in town for a wedding nearby. It was a perfect place to stay! The staff there couldn't be nicer and tried to help with any request. The check in and check out were as smooth as could be. The rooms were very comfortable, although with the... More

We went after our bad lodging experience at Cottages on Squam Lake and after being gouged $12 for wine spritzers that were house white with sparkling water, my wife ordered the $16 50-50 burger medium & got a totally burned, black dried up piece of meat, big thumbs down to Squam Lake Inn 8/14/15

This restaurant is a jewel in the Squam Lake region. My husband and I recently visited the area and we so happy that we found this restaurant. We sat on their quaint little patio and were greeted immediately. The waitress was extremely busy but that did not affect her efficiency. The food...delicious! We are from the Boston area and know...

We have been dining here since Rae and Cindy opened for business, and have always enjoyed the experience. The food never disappoints, the wait staff are always friendly and helpful, and the owners as well. Most recently, we had lunch here on July 17, 2015. The claim chowder is always a favorite and the sandwiches are hearty and delicious. I... More

Can't thank Molly enough for arranging the wonderful dinner we had with my family July 11th. The food definitely lived up to it's reputation (recommended by a dear friend) and the staff couldn't have been nicer, especially our outstanding waitress. The scallops were absolutely perfect, following the cheese platters which I would highly recommend. My husband also loved the salmon... More

The good: This place is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, and the staff are very friendly. The Sense toiletries are a far cut above the usual detergent-based Bath and Body Works dreck you usually find in B&Bs, I bring my own soap, shampoo, etc., but decided to use theirs because they smelled so wonderful and didn't contain sulfites or other stuff...

I wanted to write this review as soon as I got home... my family and wedding party stayed at Squam Lake Inn this past weekend for my wedding. Everything was absolutely top notch! We booked the entire Inn and the lakeside apartment. The staff was welcoming and always had a smile on their faces from check-in to check-out. They went... More

We were a very large group for dinner. The service was amazing. Very friendly and helpful wait staff. Nice atmosphere. Very good food. Cheese plate and rolls to start were very tasty. Mains were delicious. Would highly recommend for large functions.

I wanted someplace small and quaint to hang out for the 4th. Have always loved the town of Holderness, NH. My research led me to Squam Lake Inn. The setting is green and lush. There is a large red barn that has been turned into a gift shop. A beautiful porch wraps in an L with comfortable sitting areas for... More
