About Dave Barr
MB & I live in Newburyport, MA with our Golden Retrievers, Mini & Biker. 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 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 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.

Fun-filled Stay at Great East Lake Lodge!
Our family of 4 (including two little ones, ages 4 and 8) just returned from a one week stay in the Dylan cottage. The cabin was adorably decorated and fans kept it cool and comfortable. The boys were thrilled to sleep in the loft (keep in mind if you have little ones, you may also find yourself going up and down that ladder)! To kick off our stay, Dave and MB were kind enough to invite us, and the guests from the other cottages on the property, for welcome drinks on the lake. The lake is AMAZING! Crystal clear and calm. We made good use of kayaks, SUPs, snorkels and floats available in the boathouse. When we weren't on the lake or exploring off property, we enjoyed playing basketball and soccer on the court, ping pong and foosball in the game room above the boathouse or lazing about in our cabin with a DVD or game from their collection. We were friendly with the other guests but often had the amenities completely to ourselves. You do not have to step foot off the property to have a good time BUT if you do, you couldn't have a better location from which to explore. The White Mountains, Lake Winnipesaukee, Portsmouth, and coastal attractions of New Hampshire and Maine are all easily accessible. Locally, there was a small supermarket with great meat and baked goods, several cute places to grab a bite to eat, as well as a few antique and specialty stores. In summary, this is a perfect place to spend your vacation!
Slice of Pure New England Magic
Dave and MB keep up a wonderful mini-resort on the shore of a stunning lake. The water was unusually clear, warm, and scum-free, and we wished we booked more time to explore it with the paddle-boards, kayaks, boats, etc they provide. Cottage was clean and quaint - charmingly classic, yet refreshingly updated. Best of all, hosts were helpful, hospitable, and chill. Highly recommend to anyone. We will be staying here again.
We are so glad your enjoyed your stay at the lake. It was great to meet you and we look forward to seeing you again.
This cottage was adorable, decorated just right, the screened in porch was so nice, especially at night! The owner's couldn't have been any sweeter or any friendlier. The whole property is amazing!! We would highly recommend staying here!
Thanks for your review - hope you enjoy the rest of your Summer.
Wonderful - couldn't be better !!!
Our cottage was clean and equipped with everything we needed. We really enjoyed the kayaks, SUPs, ping pong, playing pool, swimming, watching the sunsets and just relaxing. It was great to have indoor activities for when the weather wasn't exactly perfect as well as the evenings. The owners were very accommodating and helpful. Our only problem was a week was too short of a stay - thinking about two weeks next year.
Thanks for taking time to write your review. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Peace Tranquility and Nature
The attention to detail at this location is stunning. The cottage is worthy of a magazine spread as you will note in the pictures. From the sparkling clear lake endless water toys and morning kayak trips to our evening tour of the lake ( compliments of Dave) when we spied an amazing rainbow this property did not disappoint.
If you are looking to relax, retreat or reconnect with your family this location has all the ingredients. We saw numerous loons and heard their calls as well as an owl.
Thank you MB and Dave we will be back.
Debbie and Bill Boatwright
Thanks for your kind words. One of the joys of the lake is meeting new friends and sharing the whole lake experience. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Love this place!
Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids aged 9 &14) spent a week at Dylan Cottage 2 summers in a row. We LOVED it! The cabin is so comfortable with everything you could possibly need. It's a quick walk down to the lake and all the lake toys - kayaks, SUPs, small sailboats, floats, etc. The boathouse with pool, ping pong, foosball, etc is fun for the kids, too. The tiki bar and adirondack chairs are fun for the adults. The water is warm and clear. The owners, Dave and MB, are awesome people - warm, friendly and welcoming! My daughter adored spending time with their 2 friendly and adorable dogs :) We are taking a break for a vacation out West next summer, but know we will be back to Dylan Cottage again one day!
We have enjoyed sharing lake time with your family and hope to see you again. Mini keeps waiting outside your cottage for Avery to come play. All the Best !!!!
