Centrally located motel near Weir Beach, Holderness, and Center Harbor. On White Oak Pond and we could hear the loons during the evening. Our room was very clean and adequately appointed.

Our family of four (including two teenage boys) stayed here for 5 nights in July. We stayed in Poolside Cottage #2. The front door of the cottage opened into a fairly large room with a queen size bed, TV, and Lazy-Boy. There was a separate bedroom with a double bed and a twin bed. The kitchen was adequately outfitted with a refrigerator, gas stove, sink, coffee maker, toaster, and microwave. A small dining table could just about seat four but the weather was nice enough that we ate most of our meals outside at the picnic table. The cottage was very clean and suited us just fine for the 5 days. It is a two minute walk to the lake which has a nice sandy beach and boats available for a small fee. The swimming pool was well maintained and was conveniently located in front of our cottage. There was only one negative about our stay. There was no air conditioning in Cottage #2. This is a small, family owned business and they are making improvements as they can afford them. The owners mentioned that Cottage #2 was next on the list to get an air conditioner. The weather was on the hot and humid side so it was a little uncomfortable a couple of the nights. Other than this, our stay was quite enjoyable and I would stay here again if I was in the area.

Three generations of my family look forward to coming here every August. We are a large group and take up four hotel rooms and two cottages. Although the accommodations aren't new, they are comfortable and family friendly. We feel safe letting our kids, (ages 11 to 21) run around the property while enjoying the clean, quiet and breathtakingly beautiful lake and immaculate pool. I don't know how they always have such a clean pool! Carol does everything in her power to make our stay pleasant and we always feel welcome. I love going there and watching the kids including my nieces and nephews grow up with such great memories of family vacations. It's a family run business run for families like ours, and we love it! Thanks to the McHugh family, keep up the good work so we have a great place to bring our families every August.

We love this place and the owners. Carol, is always so friendly and helpful. She also makes sure the place is kept very clean, which is the most important thing to me. We always feel at home there, and enjoy every minute of our stay.

We've been vacationing at the White Oak Motel & Cottages for many years now. The location is perfect - central New Hampshire close to the Lakes region and the White Mountains. The motel rooms and cottages are always clean and ready to provide a perfect "home-away-from-home" The "pond" is huge and beautiful, with clean, clear water. Carol, John and the rest of the White Oak team are cordial and helpful at all times. We would highly recommend this to anyone interested in swimming, boating, and hiking in one of the most beautiful places in New England.

Went on a fishing extended weekend with a friend and
found the place to be very clean, propietors very pleasant,
and location very convenient as we were fishing on lake
Winnispesaukee. As it had been raining for most of our
stay at White Oak, Carol even offered us a free nights
stay on top of what we paid for! Nice touch, I thought.
My friend an I plan to return to White Oak on our next
trip in 2012 and we are sure we will be equally pleased.
