This was our first trip bringing our small dog on, and the cottage place was exactly what we were looking for for a little escape. Near some nice hiking, directly across from the lake. We stayed in one of the small cottages. Nothing super fancy but clean and everything you needed. With the grill outside as well, you never even need to leave! We would definitely consider heading back here some day.

I stayed with my husband, daughter and her Bichon Frise at this serene and picturesque place over the Memorial Day weekend. The Cottage Place was even more inviting and hospitable than we had anticipated. The owner, Sue Smith, along with her incredible staff (e.g., Karen, James and Peter), made all of us feel so very welcomed and at home. Their charming gift shop had so many treasures at very reasonable cost and the staff went out of their way to make sure that we felt very attended to and comfortable. We took several long walks that included views of a gorgeous property front lake, small-town buildings such as the town hall, an ice cream shop, and the Natural Science Center. The local grocery store, Bob’s Shur-Fine Market, was just a short five-minute drive away and had everything we needed. Our tidy and cozy cottage suite included a kitchen where we had all of our meals, gazing at a view of the beautiful Squam Lake. My family was so taken with the area that we spent a lot of time on simple and homey activities like working with pastels and water colors, playing cards, sitting by an outside fire across from the lake, and writing. We left feeling very refreshed and fortunate to have experienced a bit of heaven in this incredibly quaint and lovely place.

I stayed in a cottage here for one night while on a business trip. The cottage was spotless and very homey. The beds were very comfortable and covered with beautiful vintage quilts. The property has lake frontage and my room had a beautiful view of Squam Lake. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and look forward to visiting here again.

Room Tip: I'm not sure you could make a mistake with a room/cottage here. Maybe make sure you do have a lake view.

My wife & I visited this charming lake side resort in late September to celebrate her birthday. We stayed in cabin 1, which in person far exceeds the high expectations we had from the picture. The owners could not have been more friendly or helpful. The cabin cleanliness was exceptional and the beach on the lake was also in perfect condition. There is a fire pit aflame in the evening and multiple outdoor grills (gas & charcoal) to use. This is not a fancy place which is good to limit the number of prima-donnas from ruining what is the best kept secret in the lakes region. We will definitely be returning to Cottage Place, only next time for a longer stay.

From the owner (Sue) to the operations manager (Karen) to the handyman (Jim) - the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. They did everything in their power to insure that we had the best possible vacation. The rooms were clean, basic efficiency style decorated to match the New England surroundings. The grounds were equally charming and well maintained. Cottage Place has a beautiful private sand beach on a quiet cove of Little Squam Lake. In addition there is a play area for children, shuffle board, and a grill as well as nightly bonfires and picnic tables. Minutes from Ashland and Holderness we had access to a variety of eating establishments, craft shops, boating and tour options as well as the NH Science Center. We had a wonderful time and did not want to leave. My wife only agreed to get in the car if I promised we would return!!!

Room Tip: Cottages and corner suites are larger, however all of the rooms are more than adequate.
