The staff was gracious and willing to accommodate. Since we had to leave very early the morning of our final day and would miss breakfast, Diane, the chef, stopped en... More

I recently stayed three nights at the Squam Lake Inn, a very well-run nine-room B&B in a nicely renovated farmhouse, conveniently located to Big and Little Squam Lakes. The innkeepers, Cindy and Rae, also operate a small restaurant and a gift shop on the same property, as well as a nearby market. A handful of other restaurants, shops, and marinas... More

As soon as you drive up and see the lovely gardens, the outdoor cafe and the many comfortable porches, the stress just melts away. The innkeepers have found the perfect balance between friendliness and giving you space to relax and enjoy some quiet... More

We stayed at SLI in May 2012 and liked it so much that we returned with friends in October 2012. Stayed in two different rooms. Both were comfortable and quite.
