Dog friendly lodging

We had the most amazing wedding at Cottage place on Squam Lake. Used the lodge for the weekend and everyone had a great time in this rustic yet beautiful place. Great memories made here! Beautiful scenery and extra friendly staff.

“Perfect place for a wedding!”

All the ambiance of a perfect NH experience . Incredible location surrounded by the beauty of little Squam. Hospitality at its best. Wonderful Mothers day weekend with the family. Excellent local dining, kayaking, boating , fishing, and Science Center. Even a wedding ceremony.


Perfect class reunion spot! We all gathered in the lodge to reconnect and ended up making amazing new memories! With cozy cottages for guests, the firepit and the beautiful lake (few early morning chilly dips) we could not have asked for a better place to all share our past, present and future! Thank, Sue!!

“Best Place for Friends and Family to Gather”

The property is well cared for, clean and includes a gift shop with a vast inventory. Plan to spend a lot of time shopping in a place that will not break your wallet. The proprietor, Sue Smith and her team at Cottage Place are gracious, kind, well trained and very accommodating.

“Rustic Lodge Comfort at Cottage Place on Squam Lake”

The staff are so nice and ready to make your stay everything you want it to be. Thank you! Its simply delightful. I’ve added a cup of tea to my scenario so now I’ll get back to gazing out at the view.
