Why Karen Avallon chose Seacoast New Hampshire

We became familiar with the Barrington area when our son and daughter attended the University of NH. We enjoy going to Portsmouth and Maine and we are continually discovering more and more things we love about the area!

What makes this house unique

The peace, serenity and constantly changing views of the lake are what we love the most. The lake activities throughout the year always provides something to do. We look forward to the changes that come with each season.

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect in every way. The owners thought of everything when furnishing this beautiful home. Our family had a wonderful week of relaxation by the lake, along with 2 road trips to Portsmouth and Mt Washington. The location is private but still close to stores, shopping, and restaurants and the wildlife and nature of the lake made for a very enjoyable week. Can't wait to return.

What a Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home for a week and were thrilled with our experience. Our adult children and spouses each had their own rooms and baths and there was platy of space for everyone to find a restful spot to relax. The waterfront was beautiful, sandy and warm with kayaks to use to paddle around pristine Swain's Lake. The house had all of the comforts of home to make the stay easy and comfortable. We left knowing we will return each year. The owners were very professional and pleasant to work with. They should be very proud of their wonderful home.

Beautiful and peaceful lake retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a serene setting. The house is amazing with many different spaces to relax and enjoy. The owners have thought of everything! We enjoyed sitting by the lake listening to the loons calling to each other, kayaking, and roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. Didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back.

Amazing lake home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the beautiful lake home in barrington for 5 nights, and let me tell you I was depressed the day I was leaving! The owners of the home were great, very nice people. You hear loons on the lake every day and you can kayak within 10 feet of them. Swains lake is very peaceful and quiet. Our family and the other family we went with might just have to make it are vacation spot every year! Oh yeah did I mention the house was amazing.
