Barnstead House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8+

Enjoy a getaway with family or friends on beautiful Locke Lake! This waterfront home has 3 bedrooms which sleeps 8 (but can accommodate additional children with an inflatable mattress), 2 full baths, full sized kitchen with new appliances, comfortable livingroom with satellite TV and a walkout basement with an air hockey table. There is a sandy play area for the kids out back and the sandy bottomed lake is perfect for children. Explore the lake with the 5-person paddle boat, 2 person kayak or canoe provided free of charge to enjoy during your stay or bring your fishing poles and fish right from the dock.

If you want a change from lake swimming, passes are provided for you to use the

2 life-guarded pools, tennis courts and 9-hole golf course.

This property is located in the Locke Lake Colony on beautiful Locke Lake in the town of Barnstead. 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. Locke Lake Colony is a year round community where homes surround the tranquil waters of Locke Lake and Half Moon Lake. 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.

We're coming back!

We're coming back!

We had such a great week at this lake house that we've already booked it again for next year. This is our fourth year vacationing with our relatives and their family and our fourth different lake and home and this is the first time we've truly wanted to return. For your reference, there were 4 adults, 6 children (ages 17, 16, 11, 7, 4 and 1) and 3 large dogs (2 huskies, 1 boxer/bulldog).

The lake is quiet and clean. The beachfront is perfect for the kids to play and build sand castles. The kayak was great to be able to go for a spin around the lake. We did not utilize the paddle boat or the canoe, but next year I will be bringing my fishing pole and will likely use the canoe (there is some great fishing out there). The owners have literally thought of everything. Had we paid closer attention (or asked), we would've known we didn't need to bring a pack and play or a high chair for the baby - they had both. They had water bowls for the dogs, gates for the deck for the dogs, a runner on the beach and places to attach tie-outs. They had all the cleaning supplies you could hope for which made keeping up with it easier with all those people. There was a crockpot and a KitchenAid mixer, a griddle, plenty of pots and pans. We did end up buying one sharper knife to use while we were there and left it as well as a new spatula since the one that was there looked like it had been left on something too hot and it was ruined, but all of the other kitchen appliances/plates/utensils were fantastic.

The trash was not an issue at all. They had several barrels right outside clearly labeled and we did not fill anything up all the way before it was picked up. There is a Hannaford not far at all that we frequented (and the ever-important Dunkin Donuts). There were bikes that the guys took for a spin to check out the area (and one with a baby seat). Plenty of sand toys, life vests of all sizes, games inside, coloring books and crayons, books to read for the kids. You really don't need to bring anything but your clothes - they even had beach towels and bath towels.

AMAZING vacation. Can't wait to go back next year.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5
We had the best family vacation here recently. The beach is fantastic for the little ones, and the guys went fishing daily. We always ended our day with smores by the fire. Denise was great to work with and we are already talking about coming back next year. Would highly recommend this family friendly "slice of heaven" to anyone.

Great house for families!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week at this wonderful house. It is well kept, spacious, comfortable and modern. There was ample space for 4 adults and 4 children plus extra room for guests. The owner and rental agent were very attentive and a pleasure to work with. The house is stocked with just about everything you will need or may have forgotten. There are lots of inside and outside toys for the kids and also many items to make the stay fun for the dogs.

In reference to an older review that mentioned an issue with the trash, it seems that this has been remedied. There are large, labeled containers for each type of recyclable material as well as mid week pick up. We did not experience any of the problems (flies, odor) that were mentioned in that review. A great perk is that Locke Lake is private so therefore the boat traffic is minimal which made going out in the kayak/canoe/paddle boat very relaxing.

Overall, this is a wonderful place for a family vacation and a great value compared to what you would pay at one of the larger lakes for a similar property. We had planned some possible outings but due to absolutely perfect weather and being quite comfortable where we were, stayed put all week and that was just fine.

Great house to rent with kids!

  • 5 of 5
What a great week we had with our family! This is such a convenient location to go to with children. We had our own private beach with a canoe, kayak and paddle boat as well as plenty of things inside for the kids to use. The bedrooms were plenty big and the house was somewhat private.

We would definitely go back!

Lovely Family Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5
The house was just as described and better than the pictures. I would definitely recommend this rental to a friend, especially one with children. The beach and shallow water were perfect for my toddler to play on and she loved running around in the grass. The family room was perfect for lounging, the bedrooms were roomy and comfortable and the table sat our whole family (which is rare in a lake rental.) Found the home clean and well stocked with towels, linens, etc. We hope to rent again in the future!!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
My family had the best vacation at this house. It is very spacious and clean. The HUGE beach is great for laying out, kids playing in the sand, fishing, having a nice fire at night, or just about anything you could think of. I was very impressed with all the toys and games they had there for the kids. Next year I can pack a lot less! Having 3 kids, I loved the fact that there was a vacuum, mop, and cleaning supplies on hand. I will definitely be going back for years to come!
