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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

My husband and I wanted a cozy, rustic cabin for a fall getaway weekend, one that would accommodate our two large labs. Cottage Place on Squam Lake was just what we were looking for! The cottage had a large stone fireplace, well equipped kitchen, grill, and a cozy feel. Although the weather was dismal we enjoyed hiking on nearby trails... More

What a beautiful place to wake up, cozy wood paneled cottage, walking my dog on the beach watching the mist billow over the water like a fairytale. Fire pit ablaze at night, we sent Chinese lanterns soaring into the star strewn sky. A blissful reunion/memorial where a family of 20 could find privacy in togetherness. Thank you for it.

My family has stayed here twice now. We enjoyed it! The staff is super friendly and the beach is nice. The water is so clear! The only reason why I didn't give 5 stars is because there is a sewage smell that comes in waves every once in awhile. And the outlets in the cottages are loose and 2 pronged... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am concerned about the existence of a sewage smell as we just installed a brand new $150,000 septic system in April of 2014. I am hoping that it is not one of our neighbors. Our manager lives on the property and she did not understand this comment either, as she... More
