We stayed for several weeks just before the peak season while waiting for our house to close. The owners and staff made us feel like part of the family. The location has a beautiful view of Little Squam Lake that can be enjoyed from a comfy chair by the open fire in the evening. We aslo had access to kayaks...

Thank you so much for this review. Our property does serve as a long term weekly solution for the right people. We will offer weekly stays for a limited amount of time while you wait for a more permanent residence. Our property is best for professional people on work assignments, folks who have sold and are searching for a new...

My husband and I escaped here this month after weeks of surgical recovery. It has been incredible. The accommodations are simple and warm-kinda like camp at Grammy's. You can bring your float and float to your hearts content in the beautiful "Golden Pond." We also rented kayaks and went fishing today. Water temp was 80's. Caught 3 fish, no Walter(for...

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit a review and most importantly for making a promise to return. Once again, mattress comfort is so individual (hard, soft, firm, not firm) it is a good recommendation to bring your own pillows and mattress topper if you have very specific needs with sleeping. Our cottages are meant to feel like...

Just here for one night but everything was very nice...very clean and comfortable cottage. We were in #4, a 2-bedroom for three of us and one dog. We used the big fan in a window because it was exceptionally warm during our visit. The beach is also very clean and the water was about perfect for hours of swimming. The...

Thanks for you 5 star review. Yes, the road is a concern for pets and children, however, the visibility is 1/4 mile each way. I think wherever you go you should have your pet and your children under your complete control. My children were 4,6, and 9 when we purchased this 1957 Cottage Colony and motel. I was relieved that...

Thanks so much for your repeat business! Love that Cottage #6 works for you. It is one of our favorite "couple rentals" - all one room with a fireplace! The lake frontage is such a great place to relax and enjoy the purity of Squam Lake.

My family and I just returned from a mid-week overnight stay at Cottage Place on Squam Lake. We stayed in cottage #7 which is a 1 bedroom cottage with a very nice partial view of the lake - great for sitting outside on the Adirondack chairs on the porch and enjoying our morning coffee! Our stay was brief but quite...

This was our second visit with Sue and her incredible staff. You really feel so welcomed. The cabins and main house are adorable and comfortable. Short drive to the favorite kiddie attractions in the area. Stellar lake access for board sports (we brought our sup) canoeing and more. My girls shouted as we drove away ... Goodbye cottage place.

Special thanks for taking the time to write this review....right back at you girls " we love you and see you next year" - Come back in the fall if you can! The foliage on Squam Lake is gorgeous!

The cottages and the lodge have lots of charm, and have everything you need. If not, a quick trip to the office and the owners/employees are always able to find it for you. There is lots of space for people to gather on the grounds and on the beach. Relaxed, informal, and friendly atmosphere.

Arriving with our family for a few days, we immediately felt welcome. The owners genuinely care that guests have fun; the property is dotted with groups of happy families. And it's a small enough place that you get to know those around you but not in an overbearing way. The beach across the street has a raft for jumping and...

Wonderful overnite accommodations. Great family spot & dog friendly. Busy road, but noise was a minimum. Unfortunately you need to cross the busy road to enjoy the beach....Clean & safe beach. Convenient location for visiting the many area attractions. We hope to rent 3 cottages next year for the whole family to come & enjoy!!!!
