  • Perfect

    "This vacation rental is perfect in so many ways. It is undoubtedly situated on the best piece of real estate on the lake. The property juts out a bit, so you have more than 180 degree water views. The property is private and large enough for lots of great playing – whether with your children or your dogs. The screened porch is the perfect spot for relaxing while listening to the loons. I did not use the hot tub, but with the lake view, it seems like it would be very romantic place to relax with your loved one. It is an easy drive to the Seacoast or the White Mountains, with so much to see and do in between. Mike and Kathy are both excellent communicators and made my stay well worth the 10-hour trip to get there. My dogs loved swimming in the lake and running in the yard, and I love that my dogs were so welcome. There is no doubt, I will be back."

  • A Wonderful Vacation

    "We were two families sharing this house for the week and we had a fantastic time, brought our boat with us. loved having the dock right there. Fishing was fantastic. Loved having the grill on porch and the fire pit for smores. Owner was very nice to deal with, answered all our questions and returned my deposit back promptly. House was very clean, AC in Master bedroom. Only down side was the association beach not kept up - weeds. Pool was great. Would highly recommend the Lake House to others."

  • Best week of our summer!

    "This was by far one of the most relaxing vacations my family has had . This chateau style home was even more impressive in person. I would have to say that the pictures capture the overall feel but the home is more beautiful and spacious in person. The location on a quiet cul du sac was perfect. We all got some very good nights sleep. The ceiling fans were just the right amount of cooling during the day when the weather was a little bit warm and the house remained comfortable at night after soaking in the late day sun. The home was clean and came with all the amenities needed for a wonderful week of fun and relaxation (paddle boat, kayaks, canoe, outdoor fire area, large deck with screened gazebo, grill). We especially enjoyed the open floor plan and large kitchen space. The beds were very comfortable and the 2 full bathrooms were a nice surprise. The outdoor space was also a nice surprise, located at one end of Locke Lake, there was not too much boat traffic to contend with. The fishing was great and that was right off the dock! The owner was very easy to deal with and was very quick to reply with answers to all my questions. I would recommend this rental to anyone. Most importantly, for my family, was that our 4-legged family member "Daisy" was able to join us. There are so few rentals that are pet friendly and we think she was right at home, she especially enjoyed lounging on the deck in the sun. For a pet friendly property it has been maintained very well and is very clean. There is a "pick your own" blueberry patch just yards away, a major grocery store and country store in opposite directions but within a 10-15 minute ride, several local restaurants, and many other activities. For the past few years our family has vacationed on Locke Lake. We are now up to 12 people and 2 rentals properties! Next year the 4 of us would like to stay for 2 weeks. We may just never leave!!! Glad we stumbled across this property and Paul."

  • Guestbook Comment

    "My family and I traveled from RI to have a quiet weekend away. We arrived in under three hours. For my kids it was love at first sight. The video games, foosball table, pooltable and big screen tv complete with movies was exactly what they wanted to see. The home is very comfortable and relaxing. The deck was very comfortable to eat on and there is no traffic as you are at the very end of a dead end road. The lake is gorgeous and BIG! It was fun to explore the different shops and parks on route 28. Peace and quiet with the relaxing sound of running water ushered us to sleep each night. You can't go wrong!!"
