Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, Sleeps 6

This lake home is all about location. Sited broadly on the east side of White Pond (43ac), perfect for the early riser who wants to see the sun peek over the mountain edge or glide silently across the water to watch the loons play. Tranquil beauty barely describes the location of this camp. From the moment you leave the pavement an over whelming feeling of peace and relaxation is in the air. Water quality is the best possible – weed free and crystal clear. Perfect for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and sailing. Horseback riding rentals nearby with great trails. Nice sandy beach too! The stargazing at night is spectacular. This cottage is unpretentious and low maintenance for the discriminating lake house renter who is looking for serenity with drop dead gorgeous views. Very private too! Originally built in 1957 and remodeled in 1986. Call 203-834-9595 for more information.

Beautiful and relaxing spot in rustic cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great place for kids, I came with my son, and we swam every day, really enjoyed the dock and raft, paddled on canoe and kayaks, fished, and soaked in the peaceful calm of White Pond. Cottage is great, small but cozy, great deck. Kids' room has 2 twins, games and puzzles. Living room is comfortable, kitchen is small but serviceable. We didn't mind the outdoor shower, although it may not be for everyone. If you want to be out in nature, have a quiet, spot right on the lake, then I certainly recommend it.

Beautiful location, cute and basic.

  • 4 of 5

We were absolutely blown away when we arrived as the cottage is in the most fantastic setting and the lake is amazing. We had use of canoes and the pontoon gets sun for most of the day with amazing sun sets.

It is quiet, very quiet except when the Loons are courting or the local kids camp is in session.

My criticisms, no welcome pack and it was unfortunate that one of the beds had evidently not had the bedding changed and the soap in the loo was black which highlighted the general grubby nature of the place.

Loved our stay and Daryl was very flexible and helpful.

We would recommend it and Tookey Mills pub in Hillsboro was great to eat out.

Wonderful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful tranquil time! Would recommend it to anyone who is seeking relaxation. The people were very helpful at the various stores. Very good antiquing, great fishing and an awesome fireworks display. I don't think that I would change anything, it depends upon what you are looking for and this was exactly what I was. Thank you again!

Lakefront Gem

  • 5 of 5

My stay was everything I was hoping for at a New Hampshire lakefront cabin. It is truly a very special place for reflecting on and enjoying nature. The lake draws you out to kayak and swim as well as offering quiet observation of this woodland gem. I particularly took advantage of the hiking as I am an avid birder. There are hikes for all abilities with many challenging trails nearby. Ending the day watching the sunset while sitting on the dock was the perfect way to close out a peaceful and relaxing day.

loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most beautiful, sweet, carefree place we've ever stayed in. Our three kids loved the lake and the freedom the kayaks gave each of us. The cottage itself was so perfect for our family of 5 and the deck and raft were where we spent most of our time from the moment we woke up. The pond is the cleanest we've ever swam in. This is a gem of a place and the sweet pond we will miss so much. Thank you to the Hawk family for letting us have a week of peace fishing, kayaking, picnicking, hiking and enjoying everything around us!
