The weather this month has been a bit damp and grey. I am looking forward to July and anticipate a shift in the weather pattern. Bring the summer season on! On the upside, our gardens have enjoyed the rain and our thriving. We have been using our cilantro in salsas and our tangy mexican caesar dressing for a couple of weeks. Last week our arugula was used extensively on our menu items. I think it is so cool to step out the kitchen door and grab a handful of herbs for an omelette. Our guests enjoyed a breakfast this morning with a variety of herbs and greens 100% from our garden. Our lettuce will be harvested this week and utilized in our tasty salads.
Squam Lake Inn got a mention in this month’s issue of Boston Magazine as being a “charm-laden B&B” and a place to stay when visiting Squam! Check out the article using the link attached!
We searched out the best lake destinations within driving distance of Boston. They came back with these nine freshwater gems, and, for each, an itinerary for the perfect stay.
I am excited for our fish monger’s delivery tomorrow. Our dinner menu will feature a parmesan and herb crusted halibut filet, blackened swordfish and our traditional New England baked haddock dish. We are hopeful to secure some wild Alaska sockeye salmon for next weekends dinner service.
If seafood is not your thing…don’t worry, we got you covered. Stop in on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

This is the spectacular view of Squam & Lake Winnipesaukee from atop Mt. Morgan. The trail head is located 10 minutes from the inn. It is an great hike, with some challenging terrain. We turned a 3 hour hike into a 5 hour expedition! We know where we went wrong and we will most certainly pass along our error to future hikers! I am anxious to do this hike again this summer. This photo was taken on April 25, 2009. There was still some snow at the top of the mountains.
We have expanded our gardens this season. We installed raised beds in early May (thanks Dad!) and some arugula and lettuce seed went in about 2 weeks ago. Tomato, peppers and a variety of herbs were planted today. We are excited to start utilizing the herbs in our dressings, marinades and salsas.
Today is the day that we “go live” with our blog! We set up our wordpress account in January and have put it on the back burner, we finally realized that you just have to go for it. Over the past 6 months we have had experiences that have prompted us to say, “that would be great for the blog!” There is a lot to share as we are always shaking things up! Our lives of innkeepers, retailers and restaurateurs can be entertaining! Many are envious, but most just think we are nuts! We are anxious to see where this goes. So join us from the The Squam Lake Inn located in beautiful Holderness, NH.
