Our beach water is shallow enough for young children to enjoy a clean, sandy bottom, with a gentle slope into the deeper water which is just past the dock for the adults to swim and boat in. Included with your rental are 2 paddleboards, 2 single person kayaks, 3 person canoe, 2 person kayak, and 5 person paddleboat and lifejackets, as well as 2 adult bicycles (one with a child carrier) and 3 children's bicycles. Bring your fishing gear! Fishing is plentiful on Locke Lake with large, fresh water bass, trout, perch, and minnows swimming around on our shoreline (NH fishing license required for anyone 16 years or older). Pack lightly! We are well stocked with sand toys and beach towels, indoor toys and board games to keep the kids entertained, as well as a full size air hockey table and video game console. We have three spacious bedrooms, each with air conditioning and wall mounted TVs. Two of the bedrooms have queen sized beds and the third bedroom has a double sized mattress bunk bed. There are two twin mattresses suitable for children to use on a floor. The walkout basement is unfinished but can be used for recreation and sleeping. Linens, pillows and blankets are provided for each of the beds at no additional charge. The first floor bathroom is next to the master bedroom and has a shower stall. The second floor bathroom has a full size shower and bath tub. Bath towels and hand soaps are provided. The eat in kitchen is stocked with cleaning supplies, dish soap, spices, and a full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, dining utensils and cookware. Need more refrigeration space? Bring a couple of bags of ice along and use the large, 7 day cooler provided. From the French doors in the living room, walk out onto the deck where you can relax on the patio furniture and enjoy your coffee watching the morning sunrise on the lake. Later on in the day, spark up the grill and have your lunch and dinner on the deck, or on the picnic table on the beach, while enjoying the beautiful sunsets on the lake. No need to leave the furry family members behind! We allow up to 3 friendly, housebroken dogs with an additional pet fee of $75/dog and increased security deposit. We will consider an indoor house cat with the same guidelines. As a courtesy to our guests, we provide Locke Lake Colony passes that allow you to use the two seasonal outdoor swimming pools (mid June - Labor Day) with life guards. The pass also includes access to the 6 hole golf course which is within walking distance from our home, as well as a brand new tennis court (we provide tennis rackets) for the duration of your stay. We stay at our vacation home several times a year, and are always making updates to this home for our guests to enjoy. We are proud to be entering our 9th year of summer rentals and welcome the opportunity to accommodate your family's vacation needs.More
