Great lakeside stay
Great little property has everything you need - little beach, dock, grill, fire pit, screened-in porch, even fishing poles! Pea Porridge Pond is quiet and peaceful - many mornings there was even a loon on the pond. Very conveniently located to lots of hiking, inside and outside the white mountains. Property was clean and communication with the rental company was easy. Recommended.

Lovely lakeside escape
Awesome house, totally private dock on lake and secluded location. Loved it! Grill was a little tricky to light- not all pilot lights worked but were able to light manually and literally everything else was A+

Labor Day Weekend
We had a lovely time at this property for the Labor Day weekend. It was a perfect spot for our kids to play, swim, and fish!

“We enjoyed a quiet week on the lake. The place is cozy and offers basic accommodations, but the location was incredible and there were plenty of amenities and thoughtful touches. We took advantage of the private beach and dock as well as watercraft. Fishing poles, life jackets, and floatation devices were also available. We enjoyed dinner each evening in the screened porch listening to the frogs and birds and watching the sun set over the lake. Would definitely come back here.”

Perfect location and clean property
There is nothing better than being right on the water! My kids loved walking down to the sandy beach area and swimming at the dock. The kayak and canoe were easy to access and use. The entire home was well appointed and very clean. We couldn't be happier with our stay.

Perfect cottage in the perfect location
Had a great vacation, perfect weather at the perfect cottage. Everything about this place was great. The home was clean and in great shape with everything you could need. The AC and wifi worked well. The screened in porch is where we ate our meals and hung out every day and evening. Having the private beach with the dock, kayaks and canoe really made this the perfect vacation for my family. I can't wait to go again. We had one small question and Pinkham Realty was quickly responsive and helpful. 5 stars

Go there. Just go there. It's a beautiful property and so quiet. The description on the website didn't do the property justice, it was excellent. Shame we couldn't have stayed longer then 2 nights.

We loved this little cottage. It was perfect for what we were looking for. It was clean, had all necessities for cooking ect. We used the horse shoe pit, fire pit, canoe and dock every day. My kids (5yo and 7yo) caught fish and frogs at the waters edge and rode bikes on the quiet dirt road. A small beach is right next to the property and the larger beach with a raft just minutes down the road. It was quiet and relaxing, and we enjoyed the screened in porch in the evening when the bugs were out. Some may want water shoes for the beach at the property as it’s muddy in the water (sandy little area to sit) but we didn’t mind. We didn’t use the TV but it is there if you want it. The bedroom doors are louvered to allow airflow as the AC is in the living room so we had to be sure to keep quiet once the kids were in bed as the doors didn’t keep out much noise. We went to the Polar Caves, Diana’s baths, Glenn Ellis Falls, Conway and rode the railway. It was close enough to all the activities we enjoyed. All in all a wonderful little cottage to stay at!

nice place. Nothing fancy, but perfect for our needs. The the rental was right next to the Association beach which was bigger. we had a lot of fun and made good use of the canoe and kayaks. Great value for the price.

Beautiful pond
Great get away for our family. Use of the kayaks and canoe was a plus. Comfortable place to stay for the 4 of us. Would stay there again. The Association beach was next door if we want a larger sandy area.
