About Derrick Peterson

The Notch has been in our family since its birth in 1959. Over the years our family has enjoyed several generations having fun and getting in touch with nature. In Jan, 2015 My Mother, Roni turned the home over to me (Derrick) to continue keeping the home in our family. We will be working on the cabin throughout 2015 and beyond, but we love our rustic cabin so if your looking for a place, on a lake, just to get away and enjoy family, then you have found your home.

Derrick Peterson purchased this cabin in 1959

Why Derrick Peterson chose White Mountains

A great place to get back to nature, quiet, isolated. Forget the stresses of modern life and take a step back to a simpler time.

What makes this cabin unique

Beautiful views from a cute cottage on Lake Armington in Piermont, New Hampshire. Lake Armington is located approximately 30 miles north of Hanover (home to Dartmouth College). The surrounding area to the Northeast is part of the White Mountain National Forest. A beautiful scenic trip of approximately 22 miles take you to Lincoln NH, a peaceful town, home to Loon mountain Ski Resort and the entrance to Franconia Notch. Great shops and outdoor activities abound in the summer months. If you wish to explore further, continue through Lincoln and you will find the Kancamagus Highway one of Americas most scenic highways. After the drive you will arrive in Conway, and North Conway. A great area of small shops and restaurants. Continue North on Rt. 302 and find yourself in the Heart of the White Mountains, home of Mount Washington, and the presidential range. Breathtaking scenery and plenty of trails to explore.

If you are an avid hiker, this is the perfect spot as The Appalachian Trail crosses the area within a half-mile of the cottage! Aside from just soaking up the beautiful views, outdoor amenities include: dock, canoe, and row boat. And if you are an avid angler, Lake Armington is home to many fish species including Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Pickerel, and Horned Pout.

Beautiful Little Piece of Property

  • 5 of 5

The Notch, as the cabin is called, sits on a quiet and beautiful little piece of property right on one of the cleanest lakes in New Hampshire, Lake Armington. The beauty of the lake and the hills across the water invite you to sit on the dock and enjoy the quiet and sunshine of this little secluded property. The cabin is neat and has everything. We enjoyed out stay and felt restored.

  • 5 of 5

Second summer at the Notch and it keeps getting better! Perfect location Lake Armington is beautiful and great for swimming and fishing. Views are amazing. Loons and a sky full of stars lull you to sleep at night. 5 minutes to Moose Scoops ice cream shop, 15 minutes to Fairlee drive in theatre, Grocery Store, Polar Caves. 20 minutes to Woodstock and Lincoln. 30 minutes to Clark's Trading Post. Pet and kid friendly. Owner is awesome to work with.

Place is perfect and we plan on coming back as long as theyll' let us!

A perfect fall getaway

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the cottage. The cottage was comfy, cozy and well equipped while still offering a rustic feel. It was great to have the fireplace with wood provided to take the chill off after kayaking on your lovely lake. The foliage was absolutely perfect and we were greeted each day by two loons who were happy to share the lake with us. All in all a great time, we only wish we could have stayed longer!!

Lovely three days in the house of Derrick!

Riding in a canoe, mushroom picking, fireplace, cozy interior and the complete silence!

One of the best of our cottages in 30 years of traveling around the world!
