Squam Lake is the place!
Post by Bette Miller of Roche Realty Group, email@example.com
Squam is a pristine, crystal clear lake and very special to those of us who live and work here. When out on the lake look in almost any direction and you will see mountains, Red Hill, the Sandwich Range, Rattlesnake Mountain and more. In fall, with the changing color of the leaves, it is spectacular.
Come explore our extensive hiking trails and gorgeous views from our mountain tops. There are beaches you can hike into and take a swim! In spring, summer, and fall enjoy kayaking, canoeing, sailing, water skiing, fishing and swimming on Squam. In winter enjoy cross country skiing on the many trails throughout the area. Downhill skiing is a short drive to Waterville Valley, Cannon and Gunstock.
In winter you can even get your fresh fish from the lake by ice fishing (don’t forget your fishing license). You can see ice boats, if weather conditions are right, on Squam and surrounding lakes and ponds.
There are many attractions to visit such as Clark’s Bears in Lincoln, Funspot and Monkey Trunks in Weirs Beach. The Squam Lake Natural Science Center has many of New Hampshire’s native animals in residence. The Squam Lake Natural Science Center offers boat tours on Squam Lake throughout the season; you’ll boat past the island where the eagles nest. You’ll see loons diving and hear them calling to each other on the lake. A boat tour is the best way to get a true feel for Squam Lake. Experience Squam Boat Tours, in Holderness, has extensive knowledge of the lake and will take you to some of the locations where the movie On Golden Pond was filmed.
There are beautiful art galleries, quaint shops, antique shops, theaters and fine restaurants to visit. Stay at one of the B&B’s, cottages or rent a lake front home.
Visiting or living here offers a more relaxed life style where nature abounds.
