“Peaceful paradise on Squam Lake”
Reviewed 27 April 2010

What can I say? This place has been a vacation spot for me since I am three years old. Almost every summer we went there as a family. Now, with a family of my own (husband and 3 kids ages 11, 9 and 6) we have been there every summer (except one) for over 12 years! Rustic, yet clean cabins right on the lake...we bring our small motorized boat so we can enjoy fishing, waterskiing, tubing...or sometimes we just hang out at the beach. It's an instant playdate for my kids who always find friends to play with. Susan and Terry Goss are great hosts and are carrying on the tradition of the Goss family. Its relatively inexpensive for what you get...and just plain beautiful! So peaceful with clean, crisp air...wooded pines..clean fresh water to swim in...and the lake is rather quiet so you won't find huge crowds and lots of "touristy" things here. The kids can swim, play ping pong, hunt for crayfish, and play "Manhunt" at night! It's great to know that my kids are making the same memories I did growing up here every summer. It does have free wireless internet, but don't expect a phone, a TV or air conditioning...and you won't miss any of them!

These rustic cabins (while clean and basic) are absolute paradise. Location is a 10+ in a beautiful deepwater cove on the most beautiful lake in New Hampshire. The beach is incredible for little ones, and the little bigger ones love the swim raft, canoes, kayaks, and paddle boat that are available first come. The hosts Terry and Susan are incredible and make this a wonderful, affordable, perfect vacation on a charming lake. Bring your marshmallows & waterskiis, and leave your stress south of Concord!
