COMFORTABLE WATERFRONT HOUSE, PERFECT FOR A RELAXING, LAKESIDE FAMILY GETAWAY!

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.

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!

GOOD SPACE FOR THE PRICE

  • 3 of 5
We found this house in good condition, no problems with that. The three bedrooms give you plenty of space for sleeping, we fit 6 adults and 4 small (under 5 years old) children with out a problem. The bathrooms were in good condition as was the rest of the house

The beach was great, some snail and it could get a little stinky because of the ducks, but over all it was really nice, and the water was super warm.

Only 2 problems with the rental, first was the trash issue:
The trash has to be separated for recycling purposes or you would be fined...this isn't a problem, I recycle at home but there wasn't adequate containers or space to do all this recycling and separating. So you end up with bag hanging around the small kitchen area. Second trash issue is that there isn't any trash pickup, so the basement stinks of trash (because you are instructed that you can't leave it in the yard) and there aren't any barrels to leave the trash in...flys end up being a major issue

the second problem, which isn't as big is that you have to notice that there is no dishwasher...it becomes a little bit of an issue with a house this size.

Overall a great property, but and worth the money (as long as they fix the trash issue, because you can get the trash picked up, the truck drove by)

WELL KEPT RENTAL!!!

  • 4 of 5
Rented weekend of September 19th 2009. The cottage was perfectly situated for what we were looking for. Two rooms upstairs, one downstairs and a pull-out couch. Would return to this cottage, the only negative would be the tv needs to be updated.
