About Dave Barr
MB & I live in Newburyport, MA with our Golden Retrievers, Mini and Biker. We enjoy entertaining, spending time with friends and traveling. MB loves her triathlons and trains whenever possible.
Dave Barr purchased this Lodge in 2008
Why Dave Barr chose Sanbornville
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.

The place is beautiful and we had such a great time. Dave, his wife and all his guest in the properties around us was amazing. We went for a quick getaway and I believe we made friends for life. He was generous enough to take us on a boat ride and just the entire set-up was an unique experience. The water and sunset views were precious, the water toys abundant. My friends and family enjoyed it very much and we hope to be back next summer!!
We had the best time with your crew and are so glad you enjoyed your lake experience. Looking forward to seeing you again.
Biker and Mini miss you ... they were so sad to see you drive away (we were too) !!!
Terrific stay at serene Great East Lake
Our extended family were warmly welcomed by Dave as soon as we arrived. We received a great overview of the property and its many amenities. The house is historic and decorated beautifully, yet not so particular that we felt uncomfortable with four kids in the house. Beds were comfy. Kids loved the bunk room. Best thing about the house (aside from the resident Golden Retrievers) is the beautiful lake and the amenities that come with the house, Never short of kayaks, paddle boards, noodles, floaties, you name it. The house has a lovely deck where one could easily pass hours reading a book and enjoying the sounds of the lapping lake waves. Not to mention the sunsets! The owners are consummate hosts, making everyone from the youngest (8) to the oldest (88) feel at ease, safe and happy. A wonderful getaway for an extended family.
We really enjoyed meeting your family and are so glad you enjoyed the lake.
Many Thanks as Biker & Mini are still loving their special treats.
We hope you will visit with us again.
All the Best,
Biker, Mini, MB & Dave
We rented Dave’s property for my husband’s 60th birthday. We had 6 adults, a 2 1/2 yr old and an 8 month old. The space was perfect. Plenty of space to gather all together and also space if you wanted quiet time. Every room was beautifully decorated with attention to detail! The kitchen had all the things you needed to cook and serve. There are extra pots if needed. Everyone left feeling relaxed and that it was a “real” vacation! Dave has a boat shed with SUP and kayaks that can be used. If you’re looking for a fun and relaxing vacation where you can hear the loons calling to each other, this is the place. Dave, MB, Mini and Biker couldn’t have been more gracious host! We all loved it!!!
One of our favorite things about renting our lake house is meeting nice folks like your family. We feel so humbled that you chose our property for your vacation and hope you return soon.
Just the Best !!!
Wonderful experience - wish we could have stayed longer..
Glad you enjoyed your lake vacation - please come back and see us.
Excellent Lake Vacation!
The house was everything we were hoping and more! We had a fabulous time right on the lake and look forward to coming back!
Thanks for taking such good care of our lake house. Glad to hear all your friends enjoyed their time at the lake. Your crew is welcome back anytime !!!
Our family really enjoyed the lake house. Extremely clean and the decorations were just amazing. There were activities for every age group but simply not enough time to do everything. We plan to stay longer next time.
Thanks for your review. It is such a pleasure to meet nice folks like you. We look forward to seeing you next year.
