Boy am I perplexed by this one. This property is supposedly a Small Luxury Hotel - when was the last time they reviewed the property?
As you drive up the drive you see a large building - and upon closer inspection it is in need of tlc. We were greeted by a very friendly person who showed us the property - lounge where tea is served in the afternoon along with snacks, the bar, restaurant (there are 2, one of which breakfast is served) and then took us to our room which was in the main house (2nd floor). She told us we were upgraded (that is a stretch) and were shown to our room (Canterbury). What can I say, old, outdated and in bad need of updating. Here is an example - the tv is 10-12" with a vcr attached on the bottom (anyone remember those - of course not they are about 15-20 years old).
We had a partial view of lake - from what I can tell all rooms have partial views as there is only a partial view of the lake from the property. Secondly, it was made partial by the fact that an air conditioner is in one window - and it would be a bit helpful if they would clear the cobwebs off the outside windows as well.
As for the bathroom - can I say motel quality - the shower is one of those plastic drop ins. The only good thing was nice soaps/shampoos.
Have I talked price - seriously way way over priced. It may be an slh but they should just leave out the "l".
We had breakfast which was just fine - never at the at restaurants because the "fancy" one is $75 price fix (seriously).
Here is my recommendation - don't stay here - across the street is the Inn at Squam Lake where we had dinner which was great. They also own the local general store and given the quality of that, their restaurant and other store - stay there!
