When the stable was converted to living space a bathroom was added along with a bedroom and wood stove. Upstairs is a loft with two additional rooms. Much of the barn wood was retained and painted giving the space a real cottage feel. From the exterior you can see a sliding barn door adding originality to the structure. Just a short walk down the path you reach the 300' feet of Squam Lake waterfront. One of the great attributes of this location is that it is on a no wake zone between the mainland and Hoag Island. This means that you are well protected from wave activity and winds. For those who long for old Squam feel or a location to build your dream home then look no further.
