Our stay at Squam was an amazing start to our trip. The Inn was welcoming, comfortable and well appointed rooms, and the home- cooked food was awesome. Great location, the trip across the lake was well worth doing, and only a short trip to explore the White Mountains - stunning autumnal colours, and we had fabulous weather given the time...

My boyfriend and I came from NYC to spend Labor Day at Squam and the Inn did not disappoint! The location was great, the staff friendly and helpful, and the restaurant was amazing - such a gem for breakfast, dinner, and apps/drinks.

We loved our time spent at the Inn. Our room was beautifully decorated in the old New England style. We had a suer modern bathroom. There is lots to see and do in the surrounding area. The food was so good that we ate there every night. Breakfasts were delicious and novel with a new something every day. The owners...

The Squam Lake Inn was perfect. The location, the staff, the rooms and the restaurant. On our New England Fall trip we ate all our meals at the inns where were staying. This saved time looking for a place to eat and was very convenient at the end of the day. Squam Lake had wonderful gourmet food. I can't imagine...

Cozy and comfortable. The rooms are impeccably furnished and the breakfast was delicious. We weren't sure if we would be comfortable in a bed & breakfast due to privacy, but that wasn't a problem. Room and building were both quiet and warm.

There is no place so comfortable and relaxing as this Inn, the Kitchen restaurant, the town and the owners Marketplace down the road. If you are from outside the US and want to experience the hospital of rural INNs this is the best place to stay

It's been a long time coming for me to (Finally) write this review. In a way, I didn't want to write a review for fear this quaint little place would be taken over by tourists, but sometimes a secret like this place shouldn't be held.

My husband stayed at Squam Lake in for a few nights. The beds were comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were great. The inn staff was wonderful. We took a tour of the lake and did some hiking. It is a wonderful area to stay and a wonderful inn to stay at.

We spent a couple of nights at the Squam Lake Inn. The hosts were very nice and helpful, the breakfast was just right each morning and it was very convenient.
