About Dave Barr

MB & I live in Newburyport, MA with our Golden Retrievers, Sushi & Mini. We enjoy entertaining, spending time with friends and traveling. MB's triathlons require lots of training but there is still time to watch the sunsets.

Dave Barr purchased this cottage 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 good and has been even better than we dreamed.

What makes this cottage 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 & fuzzy.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

I contacted Dave back in February of this year about the availability of the Dylan Cottage for two nights in June when we were planning to attend my nephew's wedding. He was not only prompt and helpful in getting back to me, but he was also very funny as he periodically regaled me with stories through e-mail about getting through one of the worst winters ever experienced in New England. Dave and his wife MaryBeth are not only some of the nicest and gracious people we have ever met, but the whole complex is a real gem. They have obviously put a lot of thought into the entire set-up, and being located on Great East Lake is a bonus as the water is very clear and clean. We loved staying in the Dylan Cottage. It was tastefully decorated, very comfortable, and clean and had everything we needed. Plus we loved the screened-in porch! The cottage and property are well cared for, and we highly recommend staying here as it's such a relaxing and enjoyable place. We do have two regrets: the first is that because we were so busy with wedding activities, we did not have the time to take advantage of the kayaks and SUPs (and the boat ride with Dave); and the second is that we did not stay longer. However, the good news is that when we come back to visit my brother and his wife, we have a wonderful place to stay!

Beautiful lake, lots of loon and a full moon!

  • 5 of 5

A great place from moment one! We were greeted by David and Golden Retrievers Sushi and Mini. David made sure to introduce us to other guests, making us feel like part of the family. We were shown into our lovely and cozy cabin. Cabin was very clean and beautifully done with lots of nice touches - extra fuzzy throw blankets, raccoon and bunny slippers, a s'mores kit and monogrammed tote bag to take home! Then a tour of the complex including boat house, beach front and tiki bar. Lots of wonderful shared amenities.

David and MB were often around to chat, check on our stay and offer tourism advise and directions. Mini and Sushi gave us our dog fix!

The loons sang us to sleep most nights. We had multiple sightings of a mother and father loon with their chick.

Highly recommend booking when a full moon is due. Paddling in the moon light is spectacular, especially when the loons are calling.

Great spot for families, retirees, couples - anyone! We'd love to visit again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the lodge and this cottage for a week. In a word everything was "perfect". The cottage was comfortable and very clean. It is obvious the owners put some thought into how the cottage was decorated as well as making all their guests comfortable. The amenities they provide for playing in the water and on land were much appreciated. We agreed early in our stay that we could not leave before we confirmed that we would be back.

Simply charming and totally relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our 2 children (ages 5 & 8) and had a lovely week exploring the lake and enjoying all of the kayaks, paddle boards, and floats. The cottage is cozy, clean, and charming. The kids enjoyed the little loft sleeping area and the screened in porch was a great place to relax. The owners are lovely, generous and helpful and we all enjoyed visiting with their friendly golden retrievers. I would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives and we hope to return for another week next summer.

So glad to be back at Great East Lake !

  • 5 of 5

Loving the warm welcome from our hosts, Dave and MaryBeth, and the family-friendly atmosphere. Having grown up spending Summers in a VERY rustic cabin on the lake, I'm loving the amenities for the cabin plus all the support for swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing, and just generally relaxing while enjoying the loons and the water - day or night. So sorry to have to leave here early for a family event, but you know I'll be back. Thanks so much for having us !

My second visit to the cottage was amazing

  • 5 of 5

My second year in the cottage was everything I hoped for!! The pristine lake, the fantastic owners, the homey cottage as well as the great outdoors of the area! Couldn't ask for anything more. Already booked my stay for next year.
