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. MB loves her triathlons and trains whenever possible.

Dave Barr purchased this lodge in 2008

Why Dave Barr chose Lakes Region

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.

Family Fun, Natural Beauty, and a Wonderful Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation to Great East Lake Lodge was quite simply PERFECT! The Lodge is beautifully decorated - it is comfortable, stylish, well maintained, and very clean. The views of the lake from the Lodge are AMAZING! While the photos of the house and lake are wonderful - both are even more beautiful in person. MB and Dave were exceptional hosts, and we felt immediately welcomed and at home with all of our new friends. Adults and children alike had the best time - enjoying the basketball court, the waterfront, all of the water toys/equipment, the game room, the tiki hut, and the fire pit. Several in our group also enjoyed wonderful fishing - catching both small and largemouth bass right from the dock at the Lodge. From listening to the loons at sunrise to enjoying sunset cruises on the water, each moment of our stay was magical. This place is truly special! We simply cannot wait to return!

Best lake vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time on our first lake vacation. We stayed at the big house right on the lake and loved it. Decorated beautifully and enjoyed sitting on deck watching sunsets. Dave, MB and dogs Mini and Sushi were great hosts. Dave went out of his way to show us a good time on pontoon boat sightseeing around the lake and tubing. Was so much to do without ever leaving the lake - kayaking, paddle boards or just swimming in the lake.

A perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

In a nutshell, we would echo all of the positive reviews that have gone before. We rented the main house for a week which just flew by too quickly. Too many activities, too little time! As others have said, Dave and MB were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble - particularly when it came to guiding/driving/dragging us round the lake on/in/behind the various water-based vehicles. Kids loved the tubing, water-skiing, kayaking, paddle-boarding etc. Big plus for us was the temperature of the lake - it really was the perfect temperature, refreshing but not at all cold.

Although plenty to occupy us at the lake, we also tried jet-skiing at Wolfeboro and river tubing on the Saco River from Conway (Tip - only go if it has rained recently and the river has some water in it! A very 'lazy river' otherwise as we discovered.)

Would definitely recommend this property to others and would love to return ourselves.

Great vacation rental on Great East Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed on and off on Great East Lake since the 1950's. This was our first time at the Lodge and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful and the access to the lake, the amenities and especially getting to know Dave, MB and the others who were staying in the cottages was a real treat. We will definitely plan to come back sooner rather than later.

Making new memories

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property within sight of the house my husbands parents built many years ago. We brought our family to the lake to fulfill a promise to my in laws that after their death we would return with them to the lake where they spent so many happy years! The Lodge was amazing, Dave and MB could not have been more helpful, taking the kids out on the boat to go tubing as well as providing all the water based activities we could have wished for! Mini promptly adopted my son and they were inseparable all week.

We could not have asked for a more perfect vacation for our family. We enjoyed day trips plus the obligatory lunch at Poor People's Pub!!

I would recommend GEL to anyone wanting a lake vacation house that lives up to its promises.....and beyond.

Perfect weekend at the most beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We visited the lake for a friend's bachelorette weekend. There were 14 of us total so we ended up renting the main house as well as one of the cottages. The location was absolutely perfect. Everything about the house is beautiful, not just because of the location (which is amazing), but the decor as well. They have done such a wonderful job.

We couldn't have asked for more from the weekend. There are so many things to do without ever leaving the property- kayaing, paddle boarding, swimming, lounging on the raft/dock, or just hanging on the incredible deck overlooking the lake. We had such a great time, and appreciated the hospitality of Dave and MB. We especially loved the company of their two dogs, Mini & Sushi. Mini (the MOST adorable golden retriever you have ever seen), ended up spending most of the day with us on Saturday. For a group of dog lovers, this was an added treat to an already perfect trip.
