My brother and sisters and I rented the lodge for our families over the 4th of July weekend. The accommodations were perfect for our large group! Plenty of bedrooms/dining areas! The lake is beautiful, the playground is right next door and the owners are amazing!

We loved this place. It was exactly what we wanted and had all the right amenities: close to the water, close to old friends and that quaint New Hampshire feel. Mary is quite the host. We stayed in one of the one-room cabins.

My wife and I have stayed at The Cottage Place many times. We enjoy the quaint, rustic setting on one of the most beautiful lakes in the Northeast. My wife especially likes the beach, landscaping, and the gift shop on the property. I like the boating and fishing the most. The owner and staff have always been friendly and helpful....

What a beautiful spot right on Little Squam Lake at Cottage Place! Comfortable and homey! The folks who run Cottage Place could not have been nicer or more accommodating! I will be back next year for year 2 of Kayak University with Tim Moore and the crew!!

This was a quaint 1950s vintage cottage setting. We stayed in the motel-like suites instead of an individual cottage which are also a possibility. The suite had plenty of room, but most of our time was spent outside using the picnic tables and grill, private beach, rental kayak on the lake, fire-pit, and flamingo-pink Adirondack chairs. The staff is friendly...

Thank you so much for your review of our property. So glad you enjoyed our Cottage Suites which are two room family apartments. Many of our guests spend very little time inside as there are so many great outdoor spaces! Lake, gardens, picnic areas, beach,kayaks,outside camp fire - so glad you enjoyed it all!

Clean and comfortable accommodations, wonderful people, and a most beautiful setting. Mary and Sue always go above and beyond to make my stay better than I expected. They treat me like family. There is no place else I would stay for a visit to beautiful Squam Lake.

This is an older cottage , well kept and clean. The kitchen had limited equipment, a new kettle, large fry pan, large saucepan without lid. There was no pan to put in the oven. The beach was sandy with a gentle slope to the water which was great for a three year old. It's unfortunate your had to cross busy...

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. The age of our cottages (built in 1957) is what is most appealing to our visitors. They are pine paneled and exube a vintage feel from the minute you arrive. Thank you for mentioning that they are well kept and clean as we work hard to maintain them. I wish...
