Towns with Squam Real Estate For Sale, Holderness, Sandwich, Ashland, Center Harbor, Moultonborough, NH

Squam Lake is the second largest lake in New Hampshire  with a total area of over 6,700 acres. The 1981 film On Golden Pond  was filmed on Squam Lake and the Squam Lake Science Center is located in Holderness.  I have fond memories of the Squam Lake Science Center. Every year our family  would hike up Rattlesnake Mountain in Sandwich and then head over to the Squam Lake Science Center and tour the native animals in their natural settings .  Salmon Fishing rocks on this lake ( big salmon ).   Unlike most of the lakes, Squam Lake is not home to a shoreline packed with cottages. You will find open shorelines with large family estates and an occasional Moose walking the shoreline.   A State Boat Ramp is located in Holderness next to the Science Center with easy access to Big Squam Lake and Little Squam.

Ashland, at the southern end Little Squam ( 408 acres ) , Little Squam lake feeds directly into big Squam.  Small downtown area with restaurants, groceries and a hardware store.

Holderness is located with access to  Big Squam Lake and Little Squam Lake, Little Squam is the place to be in the winter months, they plow a air strip to land your plane and plow a path around the entire lake for skating.  Holderness has a small downtown with a restaurant,  great sandwich shop and the only marina on the lake.

Sandwich is one of the largest towns in Carroll County. Along with having miles of shoreline you have an active artist community in the center of town and is home to the Sandwich Fair.  Historic buildings and plenty of open space.

Center Harbor, quiet New England town, the village area is location on the shores of Winnipesaukee.

Moultonborough, my favorite hiking trail is the Red Hill or at Castle in Clouds where you can enjoy lunch at the famed castle.  The center of town is located off Route 25.
