It's the perfect spot for a family vacation, a romantic getaway for two, a fishing trip, snowmobiling or just to get away with some friends for the weekend.

The owners have a canoe at the property for their guests to use to enjoy the lake.
The town of Barnstead is situated just south of the lakes region in New Hampshire and is immediately surrounded by the towns of Gilmanton, Alton, Strafford, and Pittsfield with easy access to Laconia, Rochester and Portsmouth. The city of Concord is less than an hour’s drive away as are the recreational areas of the White Mountains, Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, the Hampton seacoast and Maine’s tourist areas. Gunstock Ski Resort is a mere 20 minute drive from the property.
Locke Lake offers 160 acres of fun including swimming, fishing, and boating. The main beach is just minutes away complete with an in-ground swimming pool, a playground for the kids, and tables under a pavilion for a picnic. Bring your boat, canoe, or kayak to enjoy on this private lake. Locke Lake offers an additional in-ground swimming pool, a six-hole golf course, and tennis courts.
In addition to the amenities Locke Lake offers, there are many activities for your enjoyment. For a romantic dinner for two, the nearby Crystal Quail Restaurant offers a unique 6-course meal in an intimate setting. Take a cruise aboard the Mount Washington on Lake Winnipesaukee from nearby Alton Bay or car racing at the New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon. For the adventurous, take a day trip to the White Mountains, or the rocky coastline of Maine, or to the heart of downtown Boston or enjoy breathtaking fall foliage as you drive through the New Hampshire countryside.
