About this listing

High Orchard is a charming 2,550 sq ft summer lake house situated on top of a hill overlooking the white mountains and Squam Lake with a private red clay tennis court on the property and access to a private beach and dock on Squam Lake. Five spacious bedrooms, two fireplaces, and a lovely screened-in porch. Great for relaxing at the house or on the lake, boating, fishing, tennis, hiking, biking, and plenty of other outdoor activities. Perfect summer week get-away.

The space

Old fashioned turn of the century charm, this house is located in Holderness, New Hampshire on top of Shepherd Hill. With five bedrooms and two fireplaces, an airy living living room, dining room and wonderful screened porch, the house commands fabulous views of Squam Lake, White Oak Pond, the Rattlesnake mountains, the Squam range, Mt. Chocorua, and Red Hill.

Red clay tennis court on property. Access to a beach and swimming area in a private cove on Squam lake which is less than a mile from the house. The cove is shared by handful of other houses on Shepherd Hill, but is never particularly crowded. Great for kids. Terrific boating and fishing on Squam. Nearby marina and boat rental opportunities. Wonderful hiking in the area.

Great local restaurants in Meredith, Holderness, Ashland, and Plymouth. Amusement parks, mini golf etc. in Laconia. Mountain resort Golf courses nearby. Science center in Holderness has great exhibits and programs for kids and adults.

Additional photographs of the house, lake access, tennis court, and views are available upon request.

This is a very gracious home with beautiful touches. Our host was really nice to work with, gave us lots of info about the area and was helpful with our arrival, making sure we had what we needed, like sending over a new tea kettle within 30 minutes of our asking if there was one. The house is well stocked with plenty of linens and we just loved our family dinners in the comfortable and large dining room. The private beach area is fabulous tho' one should note in the event one plans to meet up with friends or family staying elsewhere, that there is an 8 person limit. The tennis court is also a real treat.

My family and I had a great time at Teddy's cottage. The house is old but its creaky floors add to its character and charm-- we truly felt at home there. We particularly loved having plenty of bedrooms for our family (and a baby) so everyone could have privacy when needed. Morning coffee on the screen porch was magical, and we loved having lake access despite it being a short drive away. Would definitely visit again.

The Desloge house is old and wonderfully charming, with a lovely view out over the New Hampshire hills. It is very well equipped, with most everything on hand that a renter could need. The surrounding Lakes Region is beautiful, with no end of things to do and see. Highly recommended!

We very much enjoyed our stay at Squam Lake Summer Cottage. When entering the house, there is a very pleasant relaxing athmosphere which makes it a joy to stay in the house. Everything needed is there. The view from the house is wide and beautiful. We enjoyed days at the lake and rented canoes and stand up paddle boards. Our children enjoyed the ziplines at gunstock mountain resort, a 30 minute drive from the house. Thank you Steve for your help and hospitality!

Fantastic home. Gorgeous location, great for a relaxing weekend (or week) away. House was spotless and clearly well cared for. Kitchen is fully stocked with anything you'd need. A short drive to a few local restaurants. Very comfortable beds and seating areas. Don't miss the sunrise out on the porch and the private dock.
