The word "unassuming" comes to mind when I think of Cotton Cove Cottages. The simple, well-maintained 1950's-era cottages, the pocket beach on a quiet cove, the easy access to necessary provisions in nearby villages, and the homey guests---many of whom have been coming year after year for 40 years or more, make this a special place. If you have a boat, that will add immeasurable pleasures to your stay as you explore the islands and coves with the backdrop of the Whie Mountains rising above the sparkle of clean, crystal- clear, cool water, enjoy great fishing, and water sports. Docks are available for renting. I had my first stay this July after hearing about CCCs for more than 30 years. I am glad we finally got there. I intend to go again and again, . . . if I can book a cottage. They are in high demand from a repeat crowd!

I've been coming to Cotton Cove Cottages for 40 years. The cottages are rustic - but in a good way. Each cottage has two bedrooms, a living room/dining room with a futon couch for additional sleepers, and a great, fully-screened patio with another table/chairs for outdoor dining, a bathroom with a shower stall, a fully stocked kitchen with stove/oven/micro/toaster/coffee maker/pots/pans/full size fridge and every cup/plate/serving utensil you could need. If your cabin doesn't have it - check with the office and they will get it for you. The cabins have crank out windows and a heater that keeps it toasty on those cooler nights. The linens that are provided are soft and clean but you need to bring your own beach towels. There is also wi-fi so you can stay just as connected to reality as you want.

The property itself is amazing with tall trees and an enormous amount of shore line. There are boats to rent, rowboats/paddleboats/canoes for use, a rope swing and play area for...

Squam Lake is a lake located in central New Hampshire, USA, south of the White Mountains, straddling the borders of Grafton, Carroll, and Belknap counties. The largest town center on the lake is Holderness. Golfing, sightseeing and tons of attractions are all within short driving distance.

We have 330 feet of lake front property. Additionally we have dock space for 8 boats. We also have 25 and 35 boats for daily or weekly rent. A floating deck sits in the lake and is an easy swim for you and your kids. Paddle boats, canoes and row boats are free for your use.
