They cancelled the day of the reservation. First they said they had overbooked, then acted surprised that they were listed as pet friendly. We stayed nearby at cottage place which was a definite upgrade!

Thank you taking the time to write a review. We have 4 pet friendly units. The other units we keep for people with allergies.

This motel is situated on the main road on the outskirts of Holderness. It has its own beach frontage on Squam Lake. Great views of the Lake and the surrounding mountains. We were originally given a room next to a noisy heating unit but were quickly moved when we asked to. Good value for money and friendly staff.
