We stayed here in July of 2016 for a family reunion and had a terrific time. The staff are sweet and helpful, great gift shop, the beach is steps from the cottages and truly used only by guests at the Cottage so you really feel like it's yours. Great boat dock off the beach, and platform a short swim from... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We hosted 5 family reunions this past summer and do consider ourselves one of the best locations for families that want to spend a week vacationing together at the lake. Our cottages are rustic, however, meant to offer everything one would need - a small kitchen and a... More

We, all 21 of us plus Amélie the dog, are back for our traditional family reunion. A slight change as this year we are using 2 suites, cottage 7 and the Lodge. This was our 3rd year at what we refer to as 'Squamport,' the first years were in Rockport, MA (1989-2013) with the move here in 2014, from Ocean... More

I went here for a weekend with my sons (14 and 20) at the end of August 2016. It was the perfect getaway. The private beach is right across the street. It included a floating dock and the water was great. They also had kayaks that you could use for free. It was calm and peaceful. This area is not... More

Thank you so much for such a great review. There may have been a miscommunication about our kayaks and canoes as we do have a nominal fee. We understand that it might be confusing as they are kept on our frontage - we do keep our life jackets and paddles up by the office so they remain safe and kept... More

We (couple + 3 y/o toddler) stayed at Cottage #2 for 2 nights on an August weekend. The area is beautiful, the lake is charming, the water was very clear and fun to swim in this time of the year. The cottages area is well maintained with plenty of sitting areas - it's clear that the owners care about the... More

Well it is always disheartening to have this kind of review. Let me address the things that we can immediately investigate and improve upon. After 15 years in this industry, the biggest mystery to me is how to satisfy every guests individual need for comfortable beds - too hard, too soft, firm but not hard enough, soft but not soft...

We stayed for several weeks just before the peak season while waiting for our house to close. The owners and staff made us feel like part of the family. The location has a beautiful view of Little Squam Lake that can be enjoyed from a comfy chair by the open fire in the evening. We aslo had access to kayaks... More

My husband and I escaped here this month after weeks of surgical recovery. It has been incredible. The accommodations are simple and warm-kinda like camp at Grammy's. You can bring your float and float to your hearts content in the beautiful "Golden Pond." We also rented kayaks and went fishing today. Water temp was 80's. Caught 3 fish, no Walter(for... More

Just here for one night but everything was very nice...very clean and comfortable cottage. We were in #4, a 2-bedroom for three of us and one dog. We used the big fan in a window because it was exceptionally warm during our visit. The beach is also very clean and the water was about perfect for hours of swimming. The... More

Thanks so much for your repeat business! Love that Cottage #6 works for you. It is one of our favorite "couple rentals" - all one room with a fireplace! The lake frontage is such a great place to relax and enjoy the purity of Squam Lake. More

This was our second visit with Sue and her incredible staff. You really feel so welcomed. The cabins and main house are adorable and comfortable. Short drive to the favorite kiddie attractions in the area. Stellar lake access for board sports (we brought our sup) canoeing and more. My girls shouted as we drove away ... Goodbye cottage place.
