We had the most amazing wedding at Cottage place on Squam Lake. Used the lodge for the weekend and everyone had a great time in this rustic yet beautiful place. Great memories made here! Beautiful scenery and extra friendly staff.

Perfect class reunion spot! We all gathered in the lodge to reconnect and ended up making amazing new memories! With cozy cottages for guests, the firepit and the beautiful lake (few early morning chilly dips) we could not have asked for a better place to all share our past, present and future! Thank, Sue!!

Thanks TT for submitting a recap of the Class of 1977 Reunion from Plymouth Regional High School - it was so great to share our property and to have such a great casual social time for the 40th Reunion. Appreciate the time you took to write a review.

I spent the past four days at my PRHS Class Reunion surrounded by nature and rustic charm at Cottage Place on Squam Lake. A number of friends occupied the six bedroom, two bath lodge which accommodates 14 plus overnight guests and easily accommodated 45+ day guests. The comfy leather furniture and the massive stone fireplace along with the gas heater...

I love the Class of 1977! They rocked the destination weekend April 21.22.23, 2017 - it was casual and heartwarming and precious to watch them have time together again after so many years. Our property offers an excellent venue for a casual gathering in a picturesque setting. Our Lodge does sleep 15 people and it does have all new mattresses...

Cottage Place is nice, don't get me wrong. The cottage was equipped with the basics of things we needed. We stayed in April 2016 for two nights. It's certainly cottage-y --don't expect a luxe get away, and we didn't. My main complaint is that it's across the street from the lake and isn't tucked away like I had hoped, right...

Sometimes the best time to make a review is when you're still there. Booked in to a cottage for a cozy winter stay on the long weekend and it didn't disappoint! We're writing this review on a Sunday morning with a roaring fire going while enjoying the view of the frozen lake in the sunshine. Need more than that? OK...

We were looking for another location for our Girls' Weekend, which was more difficult because of being late in the season. We found the Cottage Place and will probably not look anywhere else no matter what season it is! We had a Very quaint, comfortable cottage.

The cottage we stayed in had plenty of room for my husband and I and two large Newfoundland dogs, plus an extra bedroom we did not use. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, glasses, pots and pans, so no need to go out to eat. Our cottage had a great view of the lake and a cozy fireplace. In addition...
