Why The Owner chose Holderness

We vacationed in the Squam Lake area for many years before buying property. We returned here to retire because of the quiet beauty of the area. In 2000, we found this property on White Oak Pond, a short walk to Squam Lake. We are away visiting family at some times of the year, but when we are in NH, we stay at our house which is adjacent to this property.

What makes this house unique

Guests staying here have marveled at the serenity of the Pond. Motors on boats are limited to 7.5 hp, making this an ideal place for canoes, kayaks, and small sailboats. A boat launch on Squam Lake for 25 hp motor boats or less is a short drive, and a public launch for larger boats, located on the Squam River, is 10 minutes from the property.

Idyllic retreat - great for kids

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed in the farmhouse over a two week period this summer, and absolutely loved the property and the pond. (A note about the "pond": it is a beautiful small lake in itself, more peaceful than Squam, and with more abundant wildlife such as nesting loons.) The historic house is large and spacious, beautifully furnished and thoughtfully supplied. The large flat lawn, sandy beach, play set and fire circle make it more kid-friendly than any lake property we've seen before. We enthusiastically recommend it.

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for a week to vacation with our three young kids and we could not have been more pleased with the house and the location. The house is large, clean and comfortable with beautiful gardens and plenty of activities for everyone - especially the kids. The location in Holderness is very convenient to many of the Lakes Region attractions. White Oak Pond is so peaceful and quiet and we really enjoyed seeing the Loon family, swimming, kayaking and fishing. The owners of this home are very friendly and extremely helpful. We hope to return again soon!
