I booked the Lodge, which accommodated the 12 family members quite nicely. The rooms aren't enormous, but the beds have new mattresses and most of us slept wonderfully well. The kitchen is small, but was perfectly adequate for managing breakfasts, which is always about 2...More

When you stay at Cottage Place on Squam you can expect these things: -Rustic, reasonably-priced, affordable suites or cabins. These cabins are all clean and well-kept. But maybe some of the furniture isn't in band new condition. Go elsewhere if you're looking for 5-star amenities. -Owners and staff who are genuine, friendly, helpful, patient and ready to help you enjoy a relaxing stay at their place. -Every weather-friendly evening, count on a fire by the Adirondacks set up in a circle. Meet the other guests. Occasionally, people will show up with guitars, bongos and enthusiastic singing voices. -Across the street a nice beach with a swim raft, kayaks and boat docks. -Dog friendly! I've read some of the less favorable reviews, and I wanted to offer that, in my opinion, most of the complainers missed the point entirely. Cottage Place is relaxing and fun. If some of the amenities aren't brand new or first-class, I'm totally OK with it. I don't want a hotel experience that leaves me feeling like I'm at my aunt's house with the plastic sofa coverings being told not to touch anything!
