Excellent B & B in this beautiful area. Gracious hosts, comfortable and well appointed rooms, and common spaces that are spacious and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent. Also had dinner there which was terrific. Would definitely stay here again.

The Inn is beautifully decorated, the rooms are quaint and comfortable, and the free breakfast was delicious. Molly was so very welcoming and truly seemed to enjoy helping the guests in whatever was needed. Everyone at the Squam Lake Inn was more than happy to offer advice and suggestions on things to do in the area, and the location is... More

I and my wife recently stayed three nights at the Squam Lake Inn on short notice. We were delightfully impressed by the exceptionally caring and helpful staff including the owners. They would always take time to offer advice and suggestions on things to do in the area. For a renovated farmhouse, they maintain it quite well. The breakfasts were large... More

My wife and I stayed in the Squam Room the nights of July15-18, 2013. It features a pleasant sitting area looking out the front window as well as a fireplace. The staff was gracious and willing to accommodate. Since we had to leave very early the morning of our final day and would miss breakfast, Diane, the chef, stopped en... More

I recently stayed three nights at the Squam Lake Inn, a very well-run nine-room B&B in a nicely renovated farmhouse, conveniently located to Big and Little Squam Lakes. The innkeepers, Cindy and Rae, also operate a small restaurant and a gift shop on the same property, as well as a nearby market. A handful of other restaurants, shops, and marinas... More

We just got back from several nights at the Squam Lake Inn. It was a wonderful experience. As soon as you drive up and see the lovely gardens, the outdoor cafe and the many comfortable porches, the stress just melts away. The innkeepers have found the perfect balance between friendliness and giving you space to relax and enjoy some quiet... More

My husband and I stayed at Squam Lake Inn for 3 nights in May before the season got busy. We were impressed by the hospitality, cleanliness and overall charm of the inn. Every detail is attended to; our room was clean and comfortable. Our breakfasts were great with fresh flowers on our plates each morning. The restaurant was excellent. Steve... More

I had a business trip to Boston and last minute I decided to spend the weekend near Rumney to rock climb. I always stay in the nearby hostel but this time wanted to check out Squam Lake area. This inn was #2, but I read through all the comments and read a similar theme, how nice and friendly the staff... More

We stayed at SLI in May 2012 and liked it so much that we returned with friends in October 2012. Stayed in two different rooms. Both were comfortable and quite. Cindy, Rae, and Molly help you instantly feel like you are at home. They are creative and share their insights on places to go and see. The Inn is comfortable,... More

My husband and I traveled from NYS to NH on a regular basis for 5 years, until we finally moved to NH a couple of months ago. We have always stayed at the Squam Lake Inn and highly recommend this wonderful Inn. The owners, Cindy and Rae, are amazing for their hospitality, creative ideas, delicious gourmet meals, and lovely accommodations.... More
