Okay so this is the type of place you go if want a last minute get-away that won't cost you an arm and a leg. This property is located on Squam Lake and has a nice beachfront with a dock that the kids can swim to and jump off. All the rooms in the motel have 2 double beds, small fridge, small desk, 3 drawer dresser and a TV. Some of tv's actually had dials on them but ours did get cable. What makes the room extra special is a small screened in porch overlooking Squam Lake. The beach itself has plenty of chairs to lounge in. There is a small swingset overlooking the beach. There are also 3 goodsized grills and picnic tables to utilize. This place is as basic as it gets. I don't even think the sheets could qualify for a thread count and there certainly aren't any free shampoo bottles. Despite the lack of frills, the place is clean and a great location to pontoon rentals to enjoy the natural beauty of Squam Lake. We would go back again for 3 days to see the Science center, Hike RattleSnake, take the 15 minute drive to see Polar Caves and enjoy a pontoon rental again.
