We stayed in the Churchill Room with a nice view of the mountains and part of the lake off in a distance. Meghan, Maryellen, Brian and chef Jeff were all very hospitable. I had a great massage by Kathi during my stay and wished she was closer to where I live. Small pub opens at 5;00 and is open during dinner. The food was very good. Honestly, I thought the room we stayed in could use some sprucing up but it must be a huge undertaking to upkeep a huge, fantastic property like this one. I would definitely return there again because everyone so nice and helpful and the location is great.

happy customers

Beautiful location, spectacular views of Squam Lake, attentive service, and outstanding restaurant. Exceptionally well-maintained historic building. Great (and included) breakfast every day. Room cleaned daily, and turn-down service with house-made cookies. Jacuzzi in room.

Excellent hotel and stay

Stayed for 2 nights at this beautiful hotel as part of our New England Road trip - couple from UK.

Outstanding service and nothing was too much trouble. Brian who owns the hotel was very hands-on and attentive and gave us some great information about the area and booked tickets for the Squarm Lake cruise for us.

We ate dinner on first night which was delicious.

Afternoon tea is served in library 4-5pm free of charge.

We stayed in the Windsor room with great views of the Lake.
