We enjoyed our stay in New Hampshire and the more peaceful Lake Squam was mirrored by the quiet and comfortable Squam Lake Inn with its verandah and welcoming and helpful staff. We had a lovely meal at the inn and appreciated the complementary tea and coffee after a day exploring the area. Recommend boating on the lake ( we hadn't... More

We got a last minute room (Chororua) on a weeknight. The room was clean and nice. This place isn't on the water but it's close by (and it has an excellent restaurant). The staff is right on top of everything. It's noticeable in both the Inn and restaurant- they clearly hold themselves to a high standard...polite, efficient and genuinely friendly.

My husband and I had a wonderful July stay at the Squam Lake Inn. All of the staff were helpful, courteous, and friendly. The breakfasts were very tasty and lunch and dinner at the attached restaurant were equally delicious. Our room was quite spacious and nicely decorated. The location of the Inn is just a few steps from the lake... More

Return each year for a comfortable place to stay during camp parent's weekend. Staff is friendly, beds comfortable, and takeout from The Squam Lake Market down the street is excellent when the Inn's restaurant isn't open.

First time trip with my mister plus a big birthday: pressure was on for boutique digs without any foolishness that might cancel out the rustic/rural vibe. Lovely/swell luck to have shambled onto the Squam Lake Inn...pitch perfect start to finish! These guys continue to best themselves and they totally have it down: dovetailing sublime service and quality into the quietude... More

Clean, efficient service...truly delicious dinners! Make a reservation. Loved the little library full of local helpful information. Quite nearby to great canoing. I would encourage a re-do of the walking directions given to us to get to a lake on college avenue...it didn't say how many paths there were to,follow or how long it would take to get there. However... More

If you need something, anything at all, just ask. They will provide! This place is awesome and everyone was very willing to make certain that our experience here rivaled that of staying with family. I cannot say enough good things!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there and the staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful with a few extra treats thrown in. Thanks! I would highly recommend staying there. The food there is great also both Breakfast and dinner.

Sarah is a fantastic bartender. Breakfasts are incredible. Owners are wonderful. Manager Molly is super accommodating and sweet. Can't recommend this place any higher -- book early and make sure you take to the trails and kayak on the lakes. Fabulous trip.
