The house is on a peninsula and surrounded by water on three sides. Most rooms include water views. There is a sandy beach that includes a dock.

      Beautiful getaway!

      We loved Deb's home- it was well equipped, comfortable, and in a great location. We enjoyed both fire pits, a quick swim, and lots of moments taking in the scenic view. Deb was very accommodating and quick to email or call in response to any of our questions. Thanks very much for having us!

          Long weekend getaway

          Nice relaxing atmosphere by a pond. Lots of privacy and amazing views. Property was very clean. We will definitely come back.

            Great location! But maintenance/safety concerns...

            PROS: We really enjoyed our stay. It was nice to be so close to the water, and the water was so warm! Even on days in the high 60s we could go swimming. Great views and so idyllic. Every day we watched a white swan swim back and forth across the lake. The lily pads and flowers are beautiful. Convenient location for visiting central Mass. House was very spacious and well stocked with toilet paper, towels, etc. CONS: We had a long list of maintenance problems--some cosmetic while others impacted our convenience or safety. For example, there were *** zero working smoke detectors *** in the entire house. I contacted the property owner as soon as I realized this; one was installed that day and another four the next day. As for the other issues (e.g., no batteries in remote, broken ladder on dock, unsafe swing set, stairs to beach not stable, bedroom blinds wont open, musty basement, etc.), we didn’t request a fix since the person who handles them is just an unpaid neighbor; had there been a property manager we might have raised some of them. There was also a weird experience with an unfriendly lady who showed up with her grandsons, one of which was hired to mow the property's lawn. The lady (and one of the kids) hung out around the property for an hour while the lawn was being mowed, talking on her cellphone and hanging out at the property's private beach. It was a little weird. When I asked the property owner about it, she offered to ask them to leave, but I felt bad kicking an old lady out. But it was still weird. _ Again, we did enjoy our stay and would want to return in the future. But I do think steps need to be taken to proactively keep the property SAFE (smoke alarms are part of fire code!) and well-maintained. A paid property manager would be able to do that. We did send the owner a long list of about 25 maintenance/safety recommendations, so hopefully future renters don't have any trouble.

            4/5 Good

              Great time.

              Loved the place and location. Brought back memories with Nan of her days on the farm. Had friends and relatives over for fire pit parties. Got lots of exercise walking between rooms and up and down stairs. The only problem we had was lack of bureau and closet space in master bedroom as well as problems with lighting. We did enjoy the large shower though. We may be in our late 70s but we are not dead yet. We will contact you concerning a visit next year as soon as possible. Wish we could have met cause you sound like a hot s**t. Warm regards, Bill & Nancy Roberts
