Barnstead’s Allure Extends Beyond the Waterfront
If your ideal destination boasts small town charm to go along with all of the exciting recreational pursuits of the Lakes Region, then look no further than the quaint community of Barnstead, New Hampshire.
Since Barnstead lies just south of the Lakes Region, it is only a short drive from Laconia and the countless activities that abound on Lake Winnipesaukee. However, Barnstead vacation rentals are surrounded by the area’s more than nine lakes and ponds, meaning a few steps out your back door can open up worlds of excitement.
Renting a home in Locke Lake Colony is an ideal option for water sports enthusiasts since it is convenient to the calm and inviting waters of Halfmoon Lake and Locke Lake. Boating, canoeing, and swimming are just a few of the relaxing activities that are waiting for you outside vacation rentals in this area, but be sure to add fishing to the top of your itinerary if you want to reel in some bass, rainbow trout and horned pout.
As the Suncook River winds through town and invites you to the picturesque shores of the Upper and Lower Suncook Lakes, don’t forget about all of the local entertainment that lies away from the waterfront. Center Barnstead boasts historic Main Street and the vintage homes of the Barnstead Parade, while the Old Home Day celebrations and the Summer Concert Series ensure you always feel welcome in this classic New England town.
