Pearly Lake or Pearly Pond is a 192-acre (0.8 km2) water body in the town of Rindge, Cheshire County, southwestern New Hampshire, United States. Formerly known as Tarbell Pond, named for Revolutionary War Minuteman Lieut. Samuel Tarbell (1744-1828) who settled here, the lake is one of the headwaters of Tarbell Brook, a tributary of the Millers River, which flows southwest to the Connecticut River at Millers Falls, Massachusetts.
The undergraduate campus of Franklin Pierce University is located on the northeast shore of the lake.
