Great place! The food was especially first class and the location to Squam Lake was ideal; you could walk to the boat tour and get the "On Golden Pond" experience. Perfect for a quiet getaway. Check this out in summer or autumn.

My boyfriend and I came from NYC to spend Labor Day at Squam and the Inn did not disappoint! The location was great, the staff friendly and helpful, and the restaurant was amazing - such a gem for breakfast, dinner, and apps/drinks.

We stayed here the night after our wedding and were happy to stay in such a charming and relaxing room after such a fun and busy day.

I have lived in the Lakes Region for many years and I did not discover this hidden gem till about 2 years ago. It started by visiting their restaurant and from there they got me hooked. From the service to dining environment to quality of the food. Never have I tasted food so delicious and fresh. I did not want...

If you want to stay put after a day of touring or traveling, then this is the spot. We were greeted warmly upon check-in. After freshening up, we walked steps to the dining room where we were presented with glasses of sparkling wine to mark our anniversary (a special occasion I noted when prompted by the online reservation system).N.B.: Make...

Squam Lake Inn was very nice. Staying in a quaint part of a small town near Squam Lake was just what we were looking for. Based on past reviews, we had high expectations. The Chocorua deluxe room was comfortable and homey, just as pictured on the website. And little touches were lovely, such as local caramels in the room and...

Picked this hotel due to the excellent location. Stayed here for two days and would certainly recommend it. Greeted by Rae, who was extremely, pleasant and helpful. We stayed in the Loon room and it was decorated and cleaned to a high standard. Breakfast was excellent, as were the staff who were in attendance. Sadly, the restaurant is closed on...

The inn was clean and bed was very comfortable. The food was exceptional. Friendly and very helpful staff. It's just a short walk to the lake but keep in mind this inn is "in town." It is also convenient. I would advise to pay a little more and ask for one of the larger rooms, and ask about the bathroom....

We spent 2 nights at Squam Lake Inn recently and had a very good experience. The inn is pretty and cozy ... a large house on a pretty lot near Little Squam Lake (although there are no views of the lake). Our room was upstairs and although on the small side, it was pretty, decorated nicely, and had plenty of...
