Cozy Cottage on Quiet White Oak Pond

Bedrooms 3
Space 750 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

White Oak Pond is a beautiful 290 acre quiet lake nestled in the picturesque village of Holderness, New Hampshire. The pond has limited development with only 30 properties around the 3-mile shoreline. There is a 7.5 HP motor limit on the lake, which makes it ideal for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, paddle-boarding or just plain gazing at the ever-changing lake, listening for the call of the loons or watching a sunset.

The cottage is located two miles east of Holderness Village and 7 miles from Exit 24 (Ashland) off I-93.

This cozy cottage with two bedrooms in the main cottage and an additional bedroom in the attached studio is just right for a relaxing family vacation. It sleeps 6 with its two double beds and a set of bunk beds. There is a bath with tub in the main cottage plus a powder room and separate shower in the studio. The kitchen is equipped with stove and refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, and cooking equipment. There is internet service in the cottage. There is a screened porch as well as a patio, picnic table and grill. This is a self-catering cottage so guests supply their own linens (though linen arrangements may be made) and are expected to leave the cottage clean and ready for the next guests. Pets will be considered on an individual basis.

The cottage is 250 feet from White Oak pond where there is a private beach for your personal use. The water is shallow near the beach, making it great for small children. There are a dock and a raft which are shared with the owners when they are in residence. Two canoes are available for your use and kayaks can usually be borrowed from the owners. There is a marina with a launch nearby on Squam Lake and boats may be rented there.

There are many nearby attractions from the Squam Lakes Science Center to the White Mountains and shopping in nearby Meredith. Clark's Trading Post, Ruggles Mine and Polar Caves are a few attractions which are a short drive away.

Cozy Cottage on Quiet White Oak Pond

Lovely week!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at this sweet cottage! White Oak Pond is quiet & beautiful. Saw many loons & heard them as I fell asleep. Location is perfect, the cottage is very well equipped & so nice & clean. Dinner on the screened porch was a treat & the nice grill made dinner prep easy. The beach is comfortable & would be perfect for small kids. Nice dock & rafts to swim to, (water was the perfect temperature for swimming.) We did use the kayaks, such a nice Pond for that. Overall, it was a perfect place to spend a quiet week with family!! Many thanks to the Ulhers!

The owners, Mimzie & Roger, were terrific. The rental was cozy and comfortable. Beautiful location, merridith, holderness, and center harbor were all the same distance away, about 10 min so great choices for what to do. Also, great hiking trails abounded. The private beach we had was clean, plenty of comfortable beach chairs provided, and use of kayaks, canoe, and paddle board made enjoying the pond even more wonderful. The beach was a 3 min walk to get to from our rental without crossing any roads. Our dog truly enjoyed swimming in the pond, with or without us. Also, there was a floating dock about 100 ft from shore for our use to do serious sun soaking. Overall it was just a great experience and our good fortune to find such a gem to stay at. We truly thank Mimzie and Roger for the care and amenities that they have provided.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at this wonderful little paradise. I could not be happier with our stay. The cottage is clean and orderly and the private beach is fantastic! Our two boys (8 &5) had the time of their lives swimming & catching fish. The view from the beach is majestic! Wish we could've stayed longer.

Great little camp with a screen porch and a short path to a private beach on white oak pond

  • 5 of 5

Clean, all the basics, a/c in bedroom, generous sized screen porch and plenty of parking. Fun for 1 person, a couple or small family. Dog friendly on super clean lake! Canoes on the beach and a swim raft afloat. Would definitely return and recommend đź‘Ť?

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our time there beyond belief. We made full use of the private beach / kayaking / canoeing on the wonderful lake. Our two young boys had so much fun playing in the water and my oldest son (7) caught his first fish. The Uhler's are wonderful hosts. We are looking forward to spending another week there next year!
