We just got back two days ago from a wonderful stay at the White Oak motel. We could not have been more pleased. Everything you could need for a cottage stay was at your disposal, including a camp fire at night. We were able to take our dog Chester on the private beach and he loved the water. The owners...

We have stayed here several times in the past 35 years. Sometimes in the motel rooms, other times in the cottages. The area is nice and quiet, the pond is wonderful to swim in and relax by. There are lots of sights to see in the area.

This is the place to be to visit anywhere in the state. It's close to the regions larger lakes and a short drive to New Hampshire's white mountains. The cabins (with many types to choose from) are rustic but well kept and clean. There is a nice in ground swimming pool and a sandy beach for swimming. Several types of... More

While lying on the beach this year it dawned on me that I have been coming to White Oak since 1966. 49 years is a long time by any measure. It has and continues to be such a large part of my life and that of my family's to consider an alternate vacation spot is somewhat unfathomable (to be fair,... More

This was our 3rd year at the White Oak. The cottages are all clean and well taken care of. It's like living in a quaint little hotel for a week. The people there are friendly; especially Carol; one of the owners. Helpful, helpful would be a great word for Carol. From the moment we checked in until we left; Carol... More

We stayed at White Oak for five nights May 2015, for fishing and sightseeing. This was our third time there and every trip has been terrific. A great location, clean,comfortable cabins (we stayed in cabin #14), reasonable prices and friendly, helpful owners all add up to a great vacation. We will be back there again for sure.

We came to visit NH and stayed in cabin #18. This place is great, very friendly hostess who was always eager to help us with anything in town we had questions about. This place is very quiet. The cottage we stayed in was very clean and had an amazing view of the lake. There is a nice porch where you... More

Came down from Nova Scotia for bike week and had a great time at this place. When there was not enough room for all of us to stay the owners helped get a place to stay across the street for our friends and then did not mind them hanging out with us. Enjoyed the pool a couple different times and... More
