I stayed here for two nights with my mom & sister in one of their motel rooms (2 queen beds). Nice experience. If you are hoping for a big hotel 5 star experience, this place isn't for you. If you are like me and want to be lakefront on Squam (this is actually on Little Squam but connects to big Squam - and Little Squam, 2 miles long, is sizable) and have that summer lodge experience then this is for you. Decent sized rooms, clean, a cute screened in area that overlooks the lake. Continental breakfast was good (nice assortment of fruit and muffins). Kayaks available (no extra cost). Sandy swimming beach with swim platform. Nice campy atmosphere - this place blends in nice with the lake, lots of trees. Seemed like a great family place - and we met a couple families who come for a week and have been doing so for a while. My mom and I did the Loon tour (Fridays and Mondays only) on Big Squam and that was a good experience. If you can find/make a friend with a boat, we highly recommend the church service on Chocorua Island (very unique experience, they have a pump organ in a shed, pews in the woods, and the church service itself was very very good). Will return!
