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.

Reminiscent of the classic quintessential Squam Lake retreat, this charming four bedroom, one and one half bath seasonal cottage is set just 30 feet from the water's edge. Whether it's storytelling in front of the fieldstone fireplace, gathering in the country kitchen to prepare a meal, enjoying dinner in the waterside dining room or listening to the call of the loons from the screened-in porch, this is the place where lifelong memories have been made of times spent at the lake. Situated just outside of town, the cottage is set on a private lot boasting 275 feet of sandy bottomed waterfront and southerly views across the lake. Enjoy the property as the current owner has done for generations or use the footprint of the cottage and build your own dream home to carry on the tradition.

This newly created 5 acre lot on Bennett Cove, Squam Lake is private and wonderful! Lovely wooded property gently sloping down to the lake, with a gorgeous setting looking out beyond the Cove to the Islands and West Rattlesnake to the left. There is a roughed in road access, serving this lot and one other. Owner has put a restriction as to where the building should be placed on the property in order to insure privacy for this lot and the abutters. These parcels seldom come on the market, in a very desirable location!

A rare chance to own almost an acre of paradise on the Squam River, just 3/4 mile from Little Squam Lake and a quarter mile from the public boat launch, with direct boating access to Little and Big Squam Lakes. You won't have to lift a paintbrush because the home has seen extensive updates, renovations, and expansion over the past six years, making it just as beautiful as its natural surroundings. A spacious kitchen and dining area with a surprising amount of cabinet space provide a venue for family cookie-baking or festive meals, and the expansive living room with vaulted ceiling & picture window looking toward the river is a great spot for game night or contemplative rocking. Or why not hang out on the grand deck, sipping sangria by day and watching the stars by night? There's a huge primary bedroom with direct access to the deck, and a second bedroom with double walk-in closets. The double dock is your gateway to the region's watery playground, or enjoy terrestrial activities--volleyball? gardening?--on the broad expanse of lawn. The more industrious will love the insulated workshop, the barn, and chicken coop (currently serving as storage for lumber & fishing gear). There's also a full concrete, auto-open garage underneath the house, and a "secret" rec room where youngsters can hang out away from the bossy adults! The home is on town water and sewer as well. If you crave an escape from congested towns, or have just always dreamed of waterfront living, here's your chance!
