    Barnstead is waiting for you

    The friendly folks in Barnstead, many of whom have been here for generations, have long welcomed visitors into their little town, whose historic main street is lined with pretty colonial houses. It's perhaps perfectly placed, roughly halfway between the mountains and the seaside and nearby there is a fine selection of gorgeous lakes. On one day you could be sunning yourself on the East Coast beaches and, on the next, hiking in the wilderness trails of the White Mountain National Forest. So, what are you waiting for? Barnstead vacation rentals are ready and waiting for you.

    Let the kids run amok

    This part of New Hampshire is kid-friendly, so bring the whole family to a Barnstead vacation rental for a mountain break, away from the bustle of the city. When you're there, take them up to the Gunstock Mountain Resort in Gilford, where they can run amok along the aerial obstacle course, the biggest in New England. Afterwards, you can all step aboard one of the paddleboats for an afternoon on the sunny lake or lace up the boots for a hike along the winding forested trails. Winter brings with it a whole host of snowy activities, including snowmobiling.

    Like a kid in a candy store

    It's not just the activities that the kids will love. You know the old idiom about being like a kid in a candy store? Well, now you can take them to Kellerhaus, the oldest sweet shop in the state. Don't miss their famous ice-cream sundae buffet. Suitably sugared up, it's time to drive north to Lake Winnipesaukee where you can ride the exciting Hobo Railroad. For something decidedly more adult, the fascinating Laconia's Belknap Mill is the oldest unchanged textile mill in the US and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You'll never tire of Barnstead.

    Book early for summer

    If you're planning to take the kids away on a summer break, be sure to book up your Barnstead vacation rental early to avoid disappointment. Long, sunny days exploring this beautiful part of the world with the family will surely create memories not easily forgotten. The shoulder months can also be a wonderful time to visit. For some, the slightly cooler weather and fewer vacationers to contend with, by the lake and along the trails, is preferable. If you come in the winter, expect deep snow and powdery nearby slopes, slopes which just beg to be skied.

    An island for every day of the year

    Just 10 miles north of your Barnstead vacation rental is the huge Lake Winnipesaukee. You'll find plenty of secluded spaces along its 240 miles of shoreline. If you don't, cross over to one of the 365 little islands that dot its center – one for every day of the year. For wildlife spotters, this is the place to be. A hike along the banks of the lake can reveal everything from playful otters to bounding deer. Look a little harder and you may spot a muskrat or mink and, if you're lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a coyote.
