Nice stay at The Manor on golden Pond
Abby B

I stayed in the Kent recently and it was a very nice stay. The Manor itself is a lovely old building and very welcoming, as are the staff. The breakfasts were excellent and the one dinner we had was delicious. The Kent was in a separate building and it was very quiet and secluded. My 13 year old son was with me and he wanted to hang out in the room and just read. The jacuzzi was huge which he got a kick out of. But it was the staff who made the difference - they were so friendly and accommodating.

Great inn on Squam Lake

My wife and I decided to try the Manor as we had not been to lakes region in many years . It did not disappoint. Our room was ready early and delightful with small private deck, and king bed and jacuzzi tub . The innkeepers could not have been more helpful or nicer. Breakfast was included and choice of 8 hot entrees. Dinner at the inn was excellent as well . I especially liked the duck. We took two recommendations on hikes and a drive around the area .

Definite "luxury" feel at this small historic manor.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Manor On Golden Pond. The building, grounds and location are charming. Every staff person we met was friendly, helpful and did their jobs well. Our request for a first floor room was accommodated even as we were upgraded to a beautiful room in the main Manor with a view of Squam Lake. Our room was spotless and the housekeeper was pleasant and accommodating in a quiet, professional manner. We especially appreciate the attention to fine detail. The bed linens and towels are high quality. Clearly written instructions on how to use everything are provided and placed near the items (fireplace, phone, shower, etc) to make it easy. In addition to fine dining breakfast and dinner experiences, beverages are available in the main entrance room all day and afternoon tea and snacks are served at 4pm in the library. The Manor is charming and comfortable with many fine pictures and pieces of furniture and art. Each guest room is decorated tastefully with a different color scheme and theme. The pool is large with plenty of lounge chairs and an area with tables and chairs, as well. The manor is located very close to Squam Lake, local attractions and many great outdoor activities.
