Squam Lake

The 1981 film On Golden Pond was filmed on Squam Lake.

Squam Lake is a lake located in central New Hampshire south of the White Mountains, straddling the borders of Grafton, Carroll, and Belknap Counties. The largest town on the lake is Holderness. The lake is located northwest of much larger Lake Winnipesaukee.

It drains via a short natural channel into Little Squam Lake, and then through a dam at the head of the short Squam River into the Pemigewasset at Ashland. Covering 6,791 acres (27.5 km²)[1], Squam is the second-largest lake located entirely in New Hampshire.

Squam Lake was originally called Keeseenunknipee, which meant "the goose lake in the highlands". The white settlers that followed shortened the name to Casumpa, Kusumpy and/or Kesumpe around 1779. In the early 1800s, the lake was given another Abenaki name, Asquam, which means "water". Finally, in the early 1900s, Asquam was shortened to its present version, Squam.

The two seasonal cottages that were built around the turn of the 20th century are reminiscent of a by-gone era at the lake. Set at the water's edge, the cottages are currently used for seasonal rental income. Both are constructed from rough sawn timbers and wide pine planking. And with three docks and a swim float, there is plenty of room to accommodate several boats and all your water toys.
