This was our first trip to the Squam Lake Inn. The staff was wonderful. They waited for us to arrive and we were greeted with warmth and friendliness. Our room was quiet and tucked away. Although the bedroom was small, it was nicely done and the bathroom was roomy. We loved having coffee on the front porch in the morning.... More

The Squam Lake Inn has been a family favorite for years. But this July, the food was just average---and expensive. The location, the staff and the surroundings are so great that "OK" food is a real insult.

We stayed for 2 nights in july. The squam lake inn is a very average b & b. They do have a nice restaurant. However, on our first night told us the only available reservation was for 5 pm which we made. No one was at dinner but one other couple! We stayed in the winnepesauke. Its super-small. We tripped...

My husband and I decided to travel to the NE to escape the heat of summer. We truly enjoyed our stay at Squam Lake Inn, our first stop. Our room was beautifully decorated and we loved the barn door to the private bathroom. The breakfast was included and the food was outstanding. One night we decided to eat in the... More

This Inn nailed it! It is decorated beautifully, comfortable, food was exquisite! Enjoyed coffee on the wrap around porch and wine at the Inn's bar. Breakfast was amazing and enjoyed the atmosphere and open air or outdoor seating.

My husband and I stayed in the Lake Winni room over the 4th of July weekend. This was our first time staying though we've enjoyed the restaurant (lunch and dinner) many times. The room is cozy and clean. Nice bed linens, updated bathroom - wonderful. Nothing better though than the food and the service. Breakfast each morning was beautifully prepared... More

This is a "must visit" if you're looking for a great place in NH! We had the pleasure of staying here an entire week. While not on the lake, it's a short, 5 minute walk away. The Inn is beautifully decorated and pristinely clean! We loved the soft sheets and towels as well as the room amenities and conservation efforts.... More

We love staying at this gem. And return every summer. While not on the lake, it is close by and offers other charms. The inn keepers and their staff are lovely and welcoming. We were offered sangria on the porch and a stunning local cheese plate that we nibbled as we took in the garden breezes. Breakfast comes with the... More

The Squam Lake Inn was the perfect combination of casual relaxation and professionalism that more B & B's should provide. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the service... be sure to make reservations for dinner. Being within walking distance to the Lake was a plus too.
