We had a wonderful stay in cottage 3. We had two bedrooms with comfortable beds, warm and cozy. There were lots of good restaurants very close by. Mary in the office graciously answered all my questions.

We spent the weekend at Cottage Place with our two daughters and two Newfoundland dogs. It is rare we are able to vacation with our dogs. What a wonderful experience! Everyone on the property was extremely friendly and helpful, from the owner to the caretaker and his girlfriend. We stayed in one of the cabins and we loved it! Two...

This was the perfect location to get away from it all! The rustic cabin was just enough for my husband and myself to enjoy a quite vacation. Cell service was very limited (mostly none at all), but we didn't want to be glued to our phones when there was so much beauty to look at! The cottages are within driving...

My husband and I wanted a cozy, rustic cabin for a fall getaway weekend, one that would accommodate our two large labs. Cottage Place on Squam Lake was just what we were looking for! The cottage had a large stone fireplace, well equipped kitchen, grill, and a cozy feel. Although the weather was dismal we enjoyed hiking on nearby trails...

What a beautiful place to wake up, cozy wood paneled cottage, walking my dog on the beach watching the mist billow over the water like a fairytale. Fire pit ablaze at night, we sent Chinese lanterns soaring into the star strewn sky. A blissful reunion/memorial where a family of 20 could find privacy in togetherness. Thank you for it.

My family has stayed here twice now. We enjoyed it! The staff is super friendly and the beach is nice. The water is so clear! The only reason why I didn't give 5 stars is because there is a sewage smell that comes in waves every once in awhile. And the outlets in the cottages are loose and 2 pronged...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am concerned about the existence of a sewage smell as we just installed a brand new $150,000 septic system in April of 2014. I am hoping that it is not one of our neighbors. Our manager lives on the property and she did not understand this comment either, as she...

This beautiful quaint property is lovingly kept by the owner, Susan Smith.

My husband booked us a weekend away with the couples package they offer. It was perfect! We stayed in cottage 6 and loved that it had a wood burning fireplace. The decor was mismatched vintage furniture which made it feel homey and romantic. The bed wasn't as comfortable as I would have liked, but the quaintness of the cottage allowed...

Thank you so much for your review of our property and specifically Cottage #6 - this is one of our most romantic cottages as it is an open concept with a fireplace.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review.

Our cottages are rustic, however, meant to offer everything one would need - a small kitchen and a...
