Just returned from our yearly retreat and have to say once again White Oak has met our expectations. Along with the pond, the beach, the pool, and the peace and quiet the family staff was always there when needed. Carol goes out of her way to help and the cabins have all of the amenities required to spend quality time... More

Last year in june we stayed in the motel portion of the property. It was very clean and comfortable. This year we stayed in one of the cabins. It was clean confortable and had a beautiful view of the lake. We plan to go back next year.

It is a beautiful location, the water is nice, the loons sing but the accommodations are lacking. Beds are not very comfy, furnishings are second hand and minimal cell service. I would recommend for day use as it is so pretty there but you won't be getting a good night sleep. Not overly friendly.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that your stay was not pleasant. Our cottages are rustic, but we have added many new Serta beds and are working to improve. We do not have control over cell service . More

White Oaks Pond is a gorgeous small lake, much more secluded than Squam and Winnipesaukee lakes, though nearby, and also convenient to the White Mountains. The cabins were rustic (read: thin walls), but clean, with cute kitchens, lovely little screen porches, good mattresses and plenty of heat and hot water. Check out Google Earth (it's better) -- grills, picnic tables... More

We stayed 3 nights in one of the cabins by the lakeside. It was very comfortable and warm with a lovely view of the lake. The high point was seeing a moose swimming from one side to the other. The woman running the motel was very friendly and helpful. Definitely provides good value for money.We would certainly recommend this accommodation.

We recently stayed in one of the lakefront cottages. They were a little more rustic than we'd expected. The lake is definitely beautiful and had we been there in warmer weather I'm sure we would have enjoyed their canoes or paddle boat on the lake. We had reserved the cottage for 2 nights but chose to leave after only one... More

A marvelous motel and cottages. Complete with a beach, boat access to White Oak Pond. And fishing! The cottages are basic and clean. A great "base of operations" for a week of exploring! Reliable housekeeping services. Tip: pick up your groceries on the way if you're planning to fix some meals in the cottages' kitchens. All in all, a great... More

White Oaks Pond is what I would call a lake. A beautiful piece of nature. We had cottages 14 and 15—one right on the lake, another back in the trees. The nearby beach was excellent for our grandsons to play in, and other guests were warm and welcoming, as was the staff. We took a paddle boat out, and it... More

This is a fabulous little motel. Extremely friendly and right on the lake. We stayed in one of the motel rooms but there are also the cottages that look right onto the lake. Facilities were amongst the best we have seen and rooms are large. We were lucky enough to see a (Belted) Kingfisher skim the water as we paddled... More
