Lakeside Cottages, Lodges, Cabins and more!

Our 60 cottages and cabins at Rockywold Deephaven Camps accommodate from 2 to 14 people and are tucked discreetly amidst the natural beauty of 1.5 miles of Squam Lake shorefront forest and granite outcroppings. Built in the early part of the previous century, each cottage has twin beds, a fireplace, a screened-in porch, a private dock and an antique ice box where ice harvested from Squam Lake is delivered, as is firewood, daily.

Within our two lodge facilities, guests can rent double and single bedrooms on a daily basis. Each lodge has a large common area with a fireplace and a spacious porch overlooking the Squam Lake.

All accommodations are serviced daily by housekeeping and outside crew, and most are equipped with free WiFi.

Buffum is a wonderful cottage overlooking Squam Lake. The living room is well proportioned and feels very cozy. I read that it is one of the cottages actually built by a family who were frequent visitors which may account for some of its nice feel and special touches. I love the high ceilings, sliding doors and roomy hallway.
