FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. Is the map on VRBO accurate?

answer: Not entirely. The suite is on the same side of the road as the lake and Mirror Lake is closer to the house than it appears on the map. It is less than a minute walk from the house to the edge of the water. Mirror Lake is a fresh water lake in the White Mountains. Please note that while we are on the lake, we are also on a main road and you may hear road noise while staying at the house.

2. Can we swim, kayak, or fish in the lake?

answer: yes, yes, & yes!

3. Is the property lake front?

answer: Yes & there is a row of cottages closer to the lake.

4. What do you mean by shared property?

answer: Our suite is part of the Lakeside Condominium Association. It sits on 2.65 acres which is shared with other cabins. You have privacy in the condo and screened-in porch. You also often meet some great people (or have playmates for children) when you want to be more social.

5. With other cabins on the property, will we have privacy?

For the most part, yes. There are times when there are more and less people staying on the property. Weekdays tend to be quieter on the lake.

7. Are there other children on the property?

Usually there are other children there. Our children enjoy playing in the water with the other children, making smores by the bonfire, or playing a game of kickball.

8. During ski/snowmobiling season, who is responsible for snow removal?

We have someone who plows the driveway if there is more than a few inches of snow. We have shovels and salt available to clear paths. It is the responsibility of guests to remove snow & ice from pathways.

9. Is there a coffee maker? Yes there is a traditional 12 cup coffee maker. We try to keep coffee filters in stock and we recommend that you bring your favorite coffee with you. There are also several local businesses nearby where you can grab a coffee.

About Heather

I grew up in a small MA town that bordered New Hampshire. There were no stores or restaurants within walking or even biking distance from my home. There was however, a piggery behind my house and a farm at the top of my street and around the corner. I spent much of my childhood playing outside and exploring the woods. I went to college in Boston and fell in love with the city (& my husband)! After finishing school and living in Hawaii for a few years, we returned back to the city where we met. We live in Boston with our two daughters and our dog, Bruno. We both teach within Boston Public Schools. We enjoy spending time with our girls, traveling, kayaking, jogging, enthusiastically cheering on our New England sports teams, and getting away to the lake whenever possible.

Heather purchased this condo in 2017

Why Heather chose Whitefield

It is a great place to make memories with family and friends. It is a small lake that allows for wonderful kayaking and views.

What makes this condo unique

We have a private setting and there are wonderful, friendly neighbors nearby. It is ideal, we get our quiet time and there are often playmates ready to explore the lake with our girls. If you are traveling with extended family or friends, we also have a three bedroom house on the same property.

We spent two nights at Herb's Getaway and it was the perfect place after spending our days hiking in the White Mountains. Many great trails were only 30 minutes away. Everything was clean, the kitchen had everything we needed and the big couch and TV with Netflix was perfect for relaxing after climbing a couple of moutains. It was a bit too cold (it was late October) to enjoy the porch and the lake but it made for a great peaceful setting. The owner was very helpful and communicated with us right after we made our reservation to provide a list of local accomodations.

Highly recommended!

Herb's Hideaway

I had a great weekend. The room was spacious and modernized with a beautiful deck. Also, it was conveniently located next to little towns and hiking trails. My kids also enjoyed the experience stating, "this place is a paradise." Our family will definite visit again.

Etna, NH

Just what we'd hoped for.

  • 5 of 5

Low-key, quiet, self-serve - Walking in the door was so natural we felt we'd just walked into our own place. We brought kayaks for a sunset paddle, fired up grilled for supper, sat around fire pit and followed spooky flashlight wandering around on the island, which morning revealed was likely NOT supernatural after all. Headed up to Weeks Park for surprising view from tower, and took an unplanned route through Crawford Notch which was spectacular, its cascade easy to explore from the road pullout. Thank you!

Wonderful home away from home

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay here in NH. Clean and well-appointed, with amenities. The bed is a memory foam and comfortable. It was so nice to sit on the covered porch and not be bothered by the bugs. Area attraction pamphlets are provided in a binder, which was very helpful. Very nice stay.

The perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was is the place to stay!!! I picked this place because we were planning on visiting Santa Village. It was about a 15 minute drive from the cabin. The cabin was extremely clean and very accommodating. The contract Heather always responded quickly with questions I had. The cabin a little of everything if you forgot something such as q-tips. The fire pit was fabulous! We made friends with another family visiting and our kids played all night in the big field. Over all my family and I had a wonderful stay. We can't wait to go back.

Mirror Lake location with killer views

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing lakeside condo on mirror lake in Whitefield. It's newly renovated inside and out and boosts a modern lake decor. Herb's hideaway is perfect for someone that wants to get away from the city, enjoy all that the white mountains offers and still have the conveniences of been close to small NH towns, like we did.

We got to meet some of the condo community owners who were super friendly-tons of ownership pride. They invited us to hung out on the adirondack chairs in the common lawn area and we had the best sunsets. We also got to enjoy some smores around the fire at night time.

My family and i enjoyed the stay and wish we had more time, i would have loved to go golfing at the Mountain view golf course or the Bethlehem Country Club. We'll definitely be back.

Mirror Lake a peaceful and fun location within the White Mountains. Kayaking, swimming, and fishing are steps away from your door. Fantastic hiking and views at Weeks State Forest just 4 miles away. Go golfing, have a nice dinner, or just enjoy the views at the Mountain Grand View Resort less than a mile away. Santa's Village is within 15 minutes of the home. Clarke's Trading Posting and Whalestale Water Park are approximately 40 minutes away while Storyland is about an hour away. The Weathervane Theatre is nearby and in addition to having regular summer performances, they also have a great children's theatre camp in July & August. The Rialto Theatre, located a few miles down the road in Lancaster, has family movies every Tuesday morning, new releases, live plays, and movie festivals. The local libraries are fantastic. The Whitefield library is a few miles away- small but cute. The Lancaster library is located next to the farmers market and it has a fabulous children's room. Whitefield has free weekly movies in the during the summer.
