About the property

New Hampshire Vacation Cottage. Cozy, 2 BR, 1 BA, Lake Home. Private Patio

Thank you for considering 'Our Home' for your vacation. We hope you'll find this information helpful in planning your perfect getaway!

Welcome to The'White'Cottage on Newfound Lake. In the early 1940's,the original owners (The White's) started here with the simple idea of camping by the lake. After falling in love with Newfound Lake & the gorgeous mountain views, they eventually built this cozy cottage and made it a spacious 2 bedroom, 1 bath home. Mrs.White, formally an artist, filled this home with hand-painted scenic artwork which still decorates the walls today. Her love for antiques and homemade quilts is also evident in the array of eclectic home furnishings.

The beautiful, clean and clear waters of Newfound Lake are just steps away from this charming home that is filled with the comforts of today while still offering the charm of yesteryear.

You'll love the oeverzied deck for lounging or grilling, the screened in porch with glider, and the private patio for resting and watching the sunset.

Knotty pine walls throughout, offer a unique look of warmth and charm. Enjoy your meals in the country sized kitchen with seating for all. In the family room you can relax on one of the 2 couches (w/recliners) and enjoy a boardgame with your family.

If hiking the White Mountains or just boating on one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in the Northeast is your pleasure, than this is the place to be. There are many attractions that will appeal to all in this area of Newfound Lake.

Peace and Serenity Found!

  • 5 of 5

We found the best of both worlds. The quaint, yet spacious cottage is set back from the lake giving privacy. The lakefront area is a short walk from the cottage. It has a patio, dock, and swimming platform. We rented a boat at a nearby marina and was able to dock it at the cottage for lunch. It was also a great spot to launch our kayaks and canoe. The owners were very easy to work with. This cottage was the perfect place for a family vacation.

"White Family" Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful "family" cottage that was owned by the White family since it was initially built by my great grandfather until 2003 when the present owner acquired it. Unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to stay there again since Paulette has owned it. I am glad to see all of my grandparents furnishings and collections are still in the cottage. This truly gives it a unique feel. Many memories were made here playing games around the dining room table, swimming and boating in the lake and spending time with the ones you love. It is a shame though that many of the trees surrounding the cottage were cut down and there is not as much privacy as there once was. I recommend a stay at this cottage and hope anyone who does stay here creates as many memories as my family did.

Great Cottage & Beautiful Lake

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cottage a couple times and it's fully equipped with everything you need. There is plenty of space to move about and it's filled with charm. Newfound Lake speaks for's beautiful, clean and surrounded by mountains. The dock is comfortable and offers a great place to sit and relax, read a book or catch some sun. There is no sandy beach area which wan't a problem for us since we do not have small children. The cottage does not sit right on the water but it's right across the road and can be seen from the front deck of the cottage (it's really only a few steps away!!).
