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.

Up until the 1980's the focal point of Little Squam Lake was "Camp Wachusett", a boy's camp where young men learned valuable lessons of life and built friendships that have lasted a lifetime. Since then the camp's operations have been moved to Vermont, but many memories and most of the original buildings remain here in Holderness. The property being offered was part of the original camp and features a main house once known as "Kiowa" which served as the camp directors quarters, a seasonal cabin and a detached garage, that was referred to as "Club 8", since it originally accommodated eight campers. Completely renovated in 2000, the main level of the home features a gourmet kitchen, living room with brick fireplace, large screened-in porch, Master bedroom, three quarter bathroom, half bath and laundry room. The second floor is accessed from the original stairway that was built in 1929 and leads to a sitting area, two additional bedrooms and a half bath. A large family room, bedroom, full bath, utility room and plenty of storage are on the lower level. The home retains many of the original features including Wainscot walls, open beams and built-ins. The seasonal cabin features two bedrooms, a living room with fireplace and a screened-in porch. The detached garage allows ample room for the storage of vehicles or boats. It's a sweet offering on over a half acre with 181' of waterfront and is ready for someone new to carry on the tradition of making lifelong memories at the lake.
