About Dave Barr

MB & I live in Newburyport, MA with our Golden Retrievers, Sushi and Mini. We enjoy entertaining, spending time with friends and traveling.

Dave Barr purchased this lodge in 2008

Why Dave Barr chose Great East Lake

It's hard to describe ..... that feeling when you know something is just right !!! Sounds crazy that we bought lake property in February but it felt so right and has been even better than we dreamed.

What makes this lodge unique

The Lodge was built in 1889 and the Cottages were added in the early 1950's so there is yesterday's rustic charm with today's conveniences. The sunsets, clear water, stars above the fire pit and the loons make us all warm and fuzzy.

Comfortable Rustic Elegance

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay in as many summers. We can't stop coming back. After the initial amazement on how beautiful this place is inside and out, it then feels like a comfortable vacation home that has been in your family for generations. The setting is idyllic. The lake is clean and cool enough to be refreshing but warm enough to stay in for as long as you like. The lodge is well equipped and decorated with rustic elegance. With the other cottages and the boathouse full of toys, there is a sense of community and you can make friends. But there is plenty of space and privacy as well. MB and Dave are excellent hosts. You couldn't ask for nicer people. They make sure that your stay is fun and memorable.
Hoping to get back there soon.

Amazing. Simply amazing.

  • 5 of 5
What a spectacular time my family and I had this past July at this gorgeous home on Great East Lake. We had a full house in our party, friends and family, including my 4 year old and 19 month old. Having stayed at a number of homes on various lakes in New Hampshire, I must say that the Great East Lodge has surpassed all previous experiences. This is a truly special home.

The house is well maintained and furnished beautifully (having access to wifi was a huge plus in my book too!) The main floor has a great kitchen that includes and incredible antique oven, a very comfortable living room area with an HDTV and DVD player, and the dining room with the most ceiling fixture I have ever seen. Upstairs, the bedrooms were all very comfortable and clean. The view from the lakeside bedrooms in the morning is breathtaking. There really is nothing like waking up to the sound of water lapping on the shore. The tub upstairs was great for bathing my children, who also loved the bunkroom.

As for outside, the large deck area was perfect for taking in sunset lit dinners. Having access to a both a smoker and gas grill in the BBQ area was a big convenience. The back porch abuts the volleyball/basketball/badminton court, with big comfy cushioned couches and chairs perfect for reading in the shade. For reading in the sun there was always the tiered deck area with Adirondack chairs, looking out on the lake (right next to the tiki bar!)

Not to mention all that was there to occupy your time. When I was finally able to get my little girls off of the swing set, we made use of the paddleboards, pedal boat, noodles, swimming float, and more. There was even a private dock that we made use of when we rented a pontoon boat from a local boatyard. We were very lucky with the weather during our stay, but even if it had rained, there were a ton of activities to do. The game room had both billiards and Ping-Pong tables, in addition to puzzles, DVDs, books, and games.

I can’t recommend this property enough. Having so much to do in one place was wonderful. We were a big party and felt very accommodated by the owners, who were always very helpful and very friendly. The location and lake are scenic and awe inspiring. Great East Lake had the cleanest water I have ever seen in New Hampshire. Not to mention, you are near to area attractions like Laconia, but don’t have any of the hassles or noise of staying on a bigger lake. Don’t miss out out. Great East Lodge is a true gem.

Five Stars for Everything

  • 5 of 5
Our experience was exceptional. The location is perfect and the lodge is beautiful. Our group enjoyed every aspect of the property-the boat house, water toys and tikki bar were some of our favorites. We also enjoyed the deck for large family meals. There was also plenty of room in the lodge on the day it rained for playing games. The owners were the best. We had an issue with the refrigerator on the 4th of July holiday and there was someone there to fix it quickly. It is obvious they take good care of the property and their guests. We will definitely be back.

There is not ohter way to say this: These folks state what they will deliver and then exceed what they say they will provide. The house is wonderfully decorated and my gran kids loved the water toys. Great place.

Beautiful house on a beautiful lake!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to the area. We rented the lodge for a group of nine. The accommodations and location were perfect! The beds were comfortable, the furnishings were beautiful, the kitchen was well equipped, and the property was in great condition. Prior to our trip we thought we might take daytrips to surrounding towns, but once we arrived we didn’t leave. We spent every day kayaking, swimming, paddle boarding, playing games, sitting on the deck, and socializing. Many mornings we were the only people on the lake. The local grocery store had everything that we needed, and we had a great dinner at the Wakefield Inn. A major and unexpected plus was the minimal number of biting insects. The owners were very accommodating and worked hard to make us feel welcome. We had a great time, and we hope to return soon.

Our Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our first family trip to this location. We used the Lodge and the Charlotte cottage for our group of 12. The accomodations were perfect. Everyone had their own space and the beds were very comfortable. Plenty of room for meals etc. The property has all the amenities for a great lakeside vacation. If you don't have fun here it's your fault. The owners, Dave and MB, were very gracious and have worked hard to make this property work for their renters. We hope to have the opportunity to return soon.
