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...

We were lucky to spend 3 nights at Squam Lake Inn, we felt so relaxed from the moment we got there. The Inn is charming, beautiful decor. Molly was so visible throughout our stay, from checkin to check out. We booked the Loon room, not the largest room we stayed in during our trip but by far the nicest, the...

Website photos were misleading. Our room was tiny, bathroom/shower extremely small. Bathroom door did not close. Shades did not block exterior lighting at night...close to a busy road with all that entails. Room we chose appeared to be large in photo, extremely small in reality. Bathroom had no surface to set anything down. On the plus side, bed was comfortable....

Hi Helen, We are so sorry that our Inn was not what you expected. Our rooms however small are comfortable, clean, and provide ample storage space. It is the original lay out of our 19th century bed and breakfast and we find that to be part of the charm! We offer a set breakfast to our guests that changes everyday...

This is one of the best Inn's I have stayed at in some time. It is tastefully done with many really personal touches and attention to detail. The Grounds and Gardens are beautiful and every room has it's own ambiance. The breakfast is healthy and delicious and the farm to table focused restaurant is excellent. Most of all the staff...
