|Property type||chateau / country house|
This 'like new' house is centrally located for any day trip you might want to make or is comfortable enough to not want to leave for the entire week. Very MODERN with all amenities of home but with the serenity of being in solitude. Just steps to the water and PLENTY of large mouth Bass.
Bring your boat, jet ski, canoe,(paddle boat and floatation devices provided) and have a ball on this quiet but expansive lake. You can also venture off and play a few rounds of golf on the private six hole par three course, swim in one of two pools, relax at one of the many beaches in the colony. (passes provided to renters)
In the winter enjoy snowmobiling from the house to the state trail system for endless miles of riding. Gunstock ski slope is only 30 minutes away for skiing and tubing.
AT night stoke the outdoor fireplace and nestle up to the roaring fire and tell tales, count the ENDLESS amount of stars until it is time to turn in and dream of the days happenings.
This is truly a great getaway and is an easy commute from Boston as it is less then 100 miles away.
Keywords: This 'like new' house is centrally located but is nestled in a quiet six house dead end street with all amenities.
We have never rented this house since building it in 1997 and have made the decision to start this season. We have modestly priced the rental weeks bearing in mind the downturn in the economy.
The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 1997
My family vacationed here in Locke Lake when i was growing up and i was attracted to the ease of the destination and the fact that it is very peaceful yet in striking distance to any attraction in the Lakes Region that you desire.
Like new house. Close to everything, Peaceful, tranquil, RELAXING!
This was by far one of the most relaxing vacations my family has had . This chateau style home was even more impressive in person. I would have to say that the pictures capture the overall feel but the home is more beautiful and spacious in person. The location on a quiet cul du sac was perfect. We all got some very good nights sleep. The ceiling fans were just the right amount of cooling during the day when the weather was a little bit warm and the house remained comfortable at night after soaking in the late day sun. The home was clean and came with all the amenities needed for a wonderful week of fun and relaxation (paddle boat, kayaks, canoe, outdoor fire area, large deck with screened gazebo, grill). We especially enjoyed the open floor plan and large kitchen space. The beds were very comfortable and the 2 full bathrooms were a nice surprise. The outdoor space was also a nice surprise, located at one end of Locke Lake, there was not too much boat traffic to contend with. The fishing was great and that was right off the dock! The owner was very easy to deal with and was very quick to reply with answers to all my questions. I would recommend this rental to anyone. Most importantly, for my family, was that our 4-legged family member "Daisy" was able to join us. There are so few rentals that are pet friendly and we think she was right at home, she especially enjoyed lounging on the deck in the sun. For a pet friendly property it has been maintained very well and is very clean. There is a "pick your own" blueberry patch just yards away, a major grocery store and country store in opposite directions but within a 10-15 minute ride, several local restaurants, and many other activities. For the past few years our family has vacationed on Locke Lake. We are now up to 12 people and 2 rentals properties! Next year the 4 of us would like to stay for 2 weeks. We may just never leave!!! Glad we stumbled across this property and Paul.
For the second year, my family had a wonderful time. House is spacious and clean. We enjoyed kayaking and paddleboating during the day and star gazing while roasting marshmallows in the fire pit by night. Owners are very responsive to any questions and you can tell that this is a home that they take pride in. Looking forward to going back next year!
We enjoyed our stay. House was great and centrally located for visit to mountains and coast. Owner great to work with.
This house was a fanastic get away for our family of 5 plus dog, our daughter is 13 and twin boys are 10. The house is very clean with plenty of amenities and the owners are very easy to work with and answered all our questions. We did some boating, fishing (caught some large-mouth bass!) and lots of nearby hikes. Also just hung out in the lakeside backyard or deck with our novels, very tranquil. The kitchen is well stocked; we like to cook (not to be too fussy, but could use a lobster pot maybe?) and prepared our own meals all week. The specialty food store named Johnsons (I believe ?) is recommended for foodies and craft beer lovers. Overall this place is highly recommended!
This is our second time renting this home. (Third time if we count my husband's Memorial Day Weekend trip) It is by far the most relaxing setting. Property is surrounded by trees with the dock and lake right out the back door. The owners really make this the easiest and most relaxing vacation. So pleasant to work with, responsive to all our inquiries and are really concerned that their renters have a wonderful vacation.
The fishing is awesome, my husband caught several bass 3+ lbs and 1 that was well over 5 lbs. He just loves this place. We check in on Saturday and my husband doesn't leave the property until check out on the next Saturday.
Really convenient to shopping, etc. Spent a day in Alton and also drove to Weirs Beach for a few hours.
Thanks again, see ya next year
A beautiful home in a beautiful setting. The house is steps from the water and as peaceful as can be. I spent every day of my week vacation fishing off the dock and caught large and small mouth bass and pickerel. My children spent theirs days catching toads and fishing and their nights hand catching catfish and bullfrogs. The pool in Locke Lake Colony is clean and safe. I felt very comfortable because the pool is staffed with 2 lifeguards. My children also swam in the lake and had a great time. This is our second stay and will definitely come back again and again. Love it..... 5 stars
