Cottage Place is nice, don't get me wrong. The cottage was equipped with the basics of things we needed. We stayed in April 2016 for two nights. It's certainly cottage-y --don't expect a luxe get away, and we didn't. My main complaint is that it's across the street from the lake and isn't tucked away like I had hoped, right...

We do describe our property as a great vacation get away for people who enjoy nature and the simple things, therefore, we are glad that you did not expect LUXE as that is not our market at all.

Cottage Place was perfect! Friends from as far as Oregon, Virginia, Long Island, NJ, MA, VT, and NH enjoyed our reunion on Little Squam Lake. The cottages & rooms are great. They rent canoes & kayaks.

Sometimes the best time to make a review is when you're still there. Booked in to a cottage for a cozy winter stay on the long weekend and it didn't disappoint! We're writing this review on a Sunday morning with a roaring fire going while enjoying the view of the frozen lake in the sunshine. Need more than that? OK...

We were looking for another location for our Girls' Weekend, which was more difficult because of being late in the season. We found the Cottage Place and will probably not look anywhere else no matter what season it is! We had a Very quaint, comfortable cottage. The grounds are kept up nice and Squam Lake is right across the road,...

What a fantastic place to spend the weekend!! The owner, Sue, is just amazing and her entire staff is made up of the nicest people you could imagine. The cottages are warm, cozy, and everything about the place is designed to make you feel like you're at home. We stayed in cottage 3 and woke up to the most beautiful...

The cottage we stayed in had plenty of room for my husband and I and two large Newfoundland dogs, plus an extra bedroom we did not use. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, glasses, pots and pans, so no need to go out to eat. Our cottage had a great view of the lake and a cozy fireplace. In addition...

When staying anywhere, cleanliness is the most important factor to me and the Cottage Place suite we stayed in was very clean and tidy. This is especially wonderful because it is dog friendly and wonderful to have it super clean AND allow our dogs! It was very spacious and quaint and the little kitchen was great to have, even though...

We had a wonderful stay in cottage 3. We had two bedrooms with comfortable beds, warm and cozy. There were lots of good restaurants very close by. Mary in the office graciously answered all my questions.

We spent the weekend at Cottage Place with our two daughters and two Newfoundland dogs. It is rare we are able to vacation with our dogs. What a wonderful experience! Everyone on the property was extremely friendly and helpful, from the owner to the caretaker and his girlfriend. We stayed in one of the cabins and we loved it! Two...

This was the perfect location to get away from it all! The rustic cabin was just enough for my husband and myself to enjoy a quite vacation. Cell service was very limited (mostly none at all), but we didn't want to be glued to our phones when there was so much beauty to look at! The cottages are within driving...
