In Barnstead, NH, Located in Private Locke Lake Colony, in the midst of New Hampshire's Lakes Region, on cozy grounds and hidden among the trees you will find your peaceful and private retreat. Relax, unwind, and enjoy yourself in our brand new 3-bedroom home. Plan your day's activities over a hearty breakfast. The fully complemented kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and even coffee. If on Sunday you want to leave the cooking to someone else, there are some great area breakfast places.
Which onsite activity should you choose? Swimming at one of the two pools (lifeguards on duty), horsing around at the playground, relaxing on one of the eight sandy beaches near the house, playing some tennis, golfing a few rounds, or maybe taking the canoe out for some fishing or site seeing. Whether you decide to try one or all of the activities, we provide the passes and the equipment that you will need. (Fishing requires a NH license)
If you venture outside of the colony, the list of things to do is almost endless; Skiing at Gunstock, NASCAR Races at NH Speedway, Shopping in Historic Wolfeboro, Cruises on Lake Winnipesaukee (Alton Bay), Hiking at Mount Major, apple picking at one of the nearby farms, and much more. Back at the house, listen to some music, enjoy the surroundings from the deck, or if you are hungry fire up the gas barbeque grill.
Are you tired yet? If not, then head on downstairs to the game room. Pool, foosball, darts, Play Station, and plenty of board games await you. If you can't get the kids, big or small, to come back up, there is futon that converts to both a full and twin bed. If you still have a little energy left, turn on the big screen, pop in one of the DVDs in our collection, grab some popcorn from the cupboards, and enjoy the show. Finally, if you are tired, enjoy a soothing Jacuzzi bath followed by some quality time relaxing by a warm fire.
When it is time to turn in, lie back on the fresh linens and listen to the soothing sounds of the stream behind the house. The master bedroom has a queen bed, warm comforter, lots of closet space, and a clock radio to make sure you get up in time for another fun filled day.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Our family loves getting away New Hampshire any chance we get. In the summer of 2004, we decided to take a relaxing drive and explore the area around where we were staying. Towards the end of our trip we came upon Locke Lake Colony in the Town of Barnstead. The lake was beautiful and all you could hear were the sounds of kids playing on the beach and the pool. We fell in love with the area on first site!
Why the Owner Chose Barnstead: A short walk from the beach and hidden among the trees was a beautiful little area with a running stream behind it. All that existed existed was a cement foundation. We added our inspiration and ideas to create our perfect getaway.
