Squam (On Golden Pond)

 

 

Squam Lake (The On Golden Pond Lake ) is a lake located in central New HampshireUSA, south of the White Mountains, straddling the borders of GraftonCarroll, 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 1981 film On Golden Pond was filmed on Squam Lake. There are two tour boat outfits on the lake, both based in Holderness, that will show visitors where all the filming locations are situated.

Here is an opportunity to get on Squam Lake for an affordable price! Year- round 3 bedroom, 3 bath home overlooking Little Squam with your own docking for 2 boats, plus beach and common areas shared with 4 other owners. Seller began the renovation process and has opened up the floor plan to update the home, but it remains incomplete. Here is an opportunity to finish the home your way, so bring your ideas! New spray foam insulation, new wiring, new plumbing. Hardwood floors. Cherry kitchen being installed with stainless appliances. This home was part of what once was a family-owned cottage community, made up of this home, plus 4 rental cottages. This association of sorts is now formally a Corporation, and shares are transferred to new owners upon sale of property. Each home has its own boat docking, and they share the beach and common areas, across the street on Evans Cove. Shared fees $200/month, which cover common land maintenance, snow removal, trash removal, and water. Beautiful lake views. Would make a great vacation home, with plenty of boating, swimming, fishing and other summer recreational opportunities. Just as much to do in the winter, including skiing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing. Close to I-93 for commuting from Boston and points south, and north to some of the best ski areas.
