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

I enjoyed a very relaxing weekend at this lovely full-service B&B in Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Would definitely book there again!! The staff is fabulous and the Inn is maintained very well. The beds are so comfortable and the breakfast is delicious. We also enjoyed an amazing dinner one evening at the Inn Kitchen and Bar.

We stayed at this Inn, along with my brother and his wife stayed this past weekend at the Inn. This Inn is set in a fantastic location, away from the hustle and bustle of the Lake Winnepasaukee traffic yet it is located right in the beautiful lake area. We walked to Lake Squam in 5 minutes and the scenery is... More

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.
