The Boulders Motel & Cottages is Squam Lakes' only direct lakefront motel. Being centrally located, we are the perfect destination for your NH get away, there are many NH attractions nearby. We offer motel rooms, suites and Cottages, all of which offer their own private screened porch over looking the lake. The Boulders was named after the unique terrain on which our units are perched, our units are situated on granite ledge therefore, they all have a wonderful lake view. The Boulders is proudly the largest & oldest resort on New Hampshire’s beautiful Squam Lakes, we take great pride in preserving its charm. Situated on 600 feet of “Golden Pond" it is the quintessential lake get away. Our 100 ft of sandy beach can be the highlight of your trip, just lounging in one of our many beach chairs watching the family build sand castles and memories. Sunning on the beach, lakeside barbeques, (picnic tables and charcoal grills are scattered throughout the property), traveling via complimentary canoe, kayak, or row boat to see the loons, eagles, or to cast a line for that elusive "Walter". In the evening, gather around our beach side fire pit - toast marshmallows, make s’mores, share stories, and maybe break out into a good old fashioned sing-a-long. Located in the town of Holderness, Nestled in the lakes region, there are many entertainment options ... hike Rattlesnake Mountain for miles of spectacular views!(10 mins away) Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, walk the quaint village, pop into the library, sandwiches at the country store, great meal at Walter's Basin, cruise the lake on the pontoon tour or charter Experience Squam crew. Stay at The Boulders and you will surely ~"Make memories that will last a lifetime

My family decided to take a weekend away. We had never been there before and figured we'd give it a try. I have to say my favorite part of our motel room was the screened in porch overlooking the lake!! The new owner was fantastic, friendly and made it feel like we were family!
