Barnstead House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Trusted Rental on HomeAway for 10+ years

Enjoy two acres of privacy with:

Screened porch, Swim area on property with 40' dock and swim raft,

Two kayaks and rowboat

BBQ and Hottub, Wireless Internet and Cable,

Large firepit surrounded by adirondack chairs

Keurig coffee maker (in addition to drip), iphone compatible docking station, flat screen TV for master bedroom,

10' picnic table, hammock and basketball court

Cape on the Lake sits on beautiful upper Suncook lake with breathtaking view of the lake and forest preserve (The entire western side of Suncook lake is forest preserve). Cape on the Lake offers TWO ACRES of privacy. We are far removed from the crowds, traffic and McMansions on Lake Winnipesaukee.

During the day enjoy Cape on the Lake's private beach area with over 250 feet of waterfront, . Dock and raft are placed in lake by June 1st and removed October 1st.

In the evenings, enjoy the crystal clear skies by the large firepit (permits included along with plenty of seasoned wood).

Watch loons, boats from multiple adirondack chairs overlooking the lake. Fish from the private dock, swim, bring a boat, a jet ski, enjoy the property's kayak, basically anything you would ever want to do on a lake, you can do at Cape On The Lake. Public beach is a short 15 minute walk away through the Suncook Lake forest preserve.

The property is over 2 private acres and if you have children, they will love the freedom to roam and explore. You will love the perennials and natural New Hampshire flora. Deer can be seen on the property in the early morning along with other wildlife. This is 100% grade A New Hampshire.

The house has been completely renovated since it was purchased five years ago. It has 2 bedrooms, renovated kitchen, renovated bath, living room and separate dining area. Kitchen and dining areas have new wide pine floors.

An oversized, screened-in porch, which will accommodate several people for dining. And after that long day of swimming and your big long dinner, jump right into your private hot tub.

100% satisfaction.

Cabin is professionally cleaned after each rental. Trash service provided weekly in addition to week landscaping. The property will be looking its best and always clean.

Manager lives across the street so all problems/questions are addressed immediately.

About Mike Kirk

Family of 3 including 10 year old who loves to swim, fish, hike, boat and sit in the hot tub (and now water ski)

Mike Kirk purchased this house in 2005

Why Mike Kirk chose Lakes Region

We love the lake in New Hampshire. Great weather, warm weather and lots of outdoor activities. We wanted our son to experience the outdoors. Suncook Lake is much quieter than Lake Winnipesaukee but has all the benefits without the crowds.

What makes this house unique

The lake! Swimming, watersking, kayaking, fishing and playing on the beach. The property also has acres of grass for soccer, baseball etc...

The size of the property ensures privacy for guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Welcoming Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A glorious late September weekend here! Ideally situated - picture perfect views of the lake, loon serenades by morning and evening, owls, bald eagles, star-gazing from the dock, and everything we needed at this lovely cottage. It's welcoming, well-appointed, and made for relaxation and simplicity. The owners are local and very helpful.

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Secluded, well kept property with plenty of space. Wife and I and our 2 dogs had a most relaxing long weekend here. Brought my own little fishing boat. Docks are sturdy and well placed. House has all the amenities-(felt like home having a Keureg)-gas grill, big screen HD tv, pre-cut and seasoned wood onsite for fires. Caretaker across street couldn't have been nicer-did not need them-but was comforting knowing they would be available and approachable if we did. Smooth transactions with owner, good communication. Will return if we can get away again. Dogs loved it!!, lots of room to run!

Lakefront Bliss

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful spot! I don't think i could find another rental to match the lakefront of this property, at least not in my price range. It was absolutely beautiful and peaceful. It was good to see our little urban dog not on a leash as she ran across the yard - she was like a kid at Disney World! While I am used to more amenities (two bathrooms, washer & dryer, etc.), I reminded myself that this was a rustic vacation and the house has more amenities than a camp site and I settled in to enjoy the week. The owner's family across the road were quite helpful. There were days we didn't want to leave the property because we enjoyed the lakefront so much. Highly recommend this rental.

We had a great time at Cape on the Lake. The location was perfect away from the traffic of Lake Winnipesaukee but close enough that you could be there in about 30 minutes. We would definitely be interested in returning for another trip.

Excellent honeymoon spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I honeymooned here in October of '13. Was delightfully secluded, comfortable, close enough to groceries and restaurants, and well priced. We can't wait to be able to come back again!

Fantastic Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The Cape on the Lake is a home my family and I have returned to again and again. Set on a large property, there is plenty of room for children to run around and play. The lake is beautifully serene and wonderful for swimming, boating or sitting next to it on the dock or fire pit area when just looking to unwind and relax. They will consider pets, which is a huge plus for us! Our fuzzy family members enjoy it as much as we do. The hot tub is a huge benefit, overlooking picturesque Suncook Lake. The cabin is cozy and includes modern conveniences such as a Keurig and Wifi. Town is not too far off and there are lots of little great spots to take a day trip if you choose to leave the property (you might not ;) ) I highly recommend this location for your next family vacation!
