Wonderful Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Locke Lake cabin for two nights and it was wonderful! The cabin is right on Locke Lake with a great beach and dock and in such a beautiful area of NH. Our kids loved the game room and we all loved the screened in porch and large outdoor area. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great house with everything you could possibly need!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I were looking to get away for the weekend and found this gem. The house is situated on a nice, quiet lake and has everything you could possibly need, from essentials to entertainment. It has three spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, large living area upstairs, game room downstairs, sun room, deck, dock, great backyard, fire pit with plenty of fire wood, and kayaks available for rent. It's also a short drive to Lake Winnipesaukee, so there's still plenty to do. Or, you can just stay and enjoy the serenity of Locke Lake. We will definitely be back next year and may even bring the kids. Sue was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.

Hard to imagine a summer of not renting this home!

  • 5 of 5

We love how accommodating and comfortable this home is. There is space for everyone to relax both indoors and outdoors. We've come back 3 years in a row and though we enjoy discovering new places, it's difficult to imagine a summer of not returning to this house. The water is clean and clear - with a sandy bottom for the first several yards. The lake is wonderful for swimming, floating, kayaking and fishing. We would definitely recommend this location to others!

Amazing Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this rental. It was quiet, clean and very nice. Pictures are exactly what the house looks like. The owner is very sweet and came to the house to rake the beach from the seaweed. Our 6 and 3 year old loved the playroom full of toys! The lake is clean and the beach was perfect for playing on. We fished everyday off the dock and the kids caught sunfish almost every time. We had a fire every night and just watched the sunsets from the dock. Overall, this house is a tremendous value and well worth the price. We will absolutely be coming back in future years. This was the best family vacation!

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This spotless home has everything you'll need, even a portacrib, highchair, etc. if requested. There is so much room to spread out to read, watch tv, play and relax. The lake is perfect for little ones, clear and shallow with a nice sandy beach. Perfect to get on a float and watch the ducks. I was wishing for a paddleboat for this calm, small lake. We used the kayaks every day. The 10 month old could crawl around the playroom safely and enjoy the toys with her big sister. With the beach, the pool, and such a great house, you won't want to leave to do anything else. We did take the 3 year-old to Castle in the Clouds for the annual Princess Day. She loved it. We went to Wolfboro and had breakfast at the Strawberry Patch on the day we left. It was great.
