This place is disgusting! We were so disgusted, we turned right around and drove 3 hrs. back home. We checked in and when we entered Cottage #1 there were ants on the ceiling and floor. The place was very dirty. When I went and complained about the ants, the Manager apologized and told me there were no other cottages available. The groundsman, who was standing there, said " I put some poison down yesterday , do you want me to put some more". We had our dog with us for God's Sake, he would have been tied up right outside where they were to put the poison. When I told her that we wanted our money back, the Manager agreed and voided the charge I made upon check-in but my deposit was made before they changed their credit card system so they would mail me a check. Needless to say I have not received that check and have contacted them and they have no intention of sending it. They accused us of exagerating the ant problem. Please people, you read some of the other reviews with the same problem. On their website they make Cottage #1 appear to be a "Doll House", what we saw was an "Outhouse". Check out their website. Also, it looks like the cottages are right on the beach, WRONG! The beach was across busy Rte. 3. Do yourself a favor, DO NOT CONSIDER THE COTTAGE PLACE AT SQUAM LAKE !!
