My wife & I celebrated our 50th anniversary with a trip to Squam Lake. After researching several inns in the area, we decided The Manor on Golden Pond looked like the perfect place to stay for this occasion. We were not disappointed. The manor is beautiful once you walk in the door. The inn keepers, Mary Ellen & Brian were wonderful hosts. The waitstaff, Lynne could not have been more accommodating at meal time. Breakfast each morning was plentiful and delicious. We ate dinner at the manor on the night of our anniversary. The dining room was warm and inviting with beautiful architecture dating back decades. We both chose the tenderloin beef as our entre. The tenderloin was perfect and beyond our expectations. The chef's presentation was exquisite. Mashed creamy potatoes carefully arranged on the plate, with our vegetable placed to complement the dinner plate. We both agreed it was one of the best meals we've had. It was the perfect dinner for our 50th anniversary. Appetizers & dessert were equally wonderful. Our room was another treat. King size bed with jacuzzi and a deck off the room to sit and enjoy the sunrise over coffee. The interior of the manor is well kept. Spotless inside, but the exterior of the manor and grounds are in need of maintenance. The pool was not vacuumed, nor the tennis courts. The lawn was in need of mowing as well. To be fair, hiring help has been a significant challenge for the inn keepers during & following the pandemic. This probably contributes to the difficulty of maintaining the grounds and the exterior of the building. We sincerely wish Mary Ellen & Brian the very best in 2021 and beyond. They own a precious manor with a long history in the Squam Lake region. We hope it continues to serve guests with all the warmth & hospitality of years past.

We stayed at the Manor to celebrate an anniversary and birthday. We had high expectations considering the price point of the rooms and that the Inn promotes itself as having world class service and refined decor. I agree with previous posters that the inn and property are in definite need of updating and refresh. The staff were responsive to requests, but you did not get the sense that they were happy you were there or that they would go out of their way to be accommodating. Although the Inn was notified we were staying to celebrate - except for a printed note card at dinner with congratulations, there was no effort on the Inns behalf to make the stay feel special or celebratory. We always traveled for this weekend and our hosts have ensured we had amazing experiences, this was not the case here. On the up side, the location of the Inn is great for touring the local lake region, and the White mountains. The crown jewel of the Inn is the food - the chef was amazing and our meals both nights were outstanding. The Inn was underwhelming, but the food was fabulous. I would not go out of my way to stay here again, but would definitely go back to dine.

Like other reviewers, we also found the room very dated. We could hear the plumbing from the room next to us. The signs requesting no smoking were yellow with time and age. We had afternoon tea delivered to the room- a nice touch and we enjoyed the fire each night we were there. The bed, linens and towels were all fresh and clean. The property itself needs some landscaping and attention. To be called a Manor - some fall flowers and basic mowing and weeding would go a long way. I know it’s COVID times, but these details are important when you don’t get the pub or gym.

We just returned from a wonderful weekend from The Manor on Golden Pond. Where do I begin? We felt so safe and relaxed with the Covid precautions. Brian - the co owner with his wife - was informative. Professional and went beyond my expectations. Our room had an amazing view. It was sparkling clean upon arrival with first class amenities. The breakfast, tea time , evening home made cookies were delicious. We very much enjoyed our dinner . The location is ideal. Thank you - we will return-

Nice B&B overlooking Squam Lake. Rooms were clean and modern. Breakfast was good. Brian was very helpful on hikes, restaurants and other suggested activities. Within walking distance of a couple restaurants and a marina. Had a pool. If you are looking for a quiet, well run B&B, The Manor should be on your list.
