Our experience was much like the others listed here. We spent a week leading up to Labor Day, 2011. The house is comfortable, the view is beautiful and relaxing, with an assortment of birds. Everything was accessible. The owners were very nice and helpful. The water is just out the back. Sturbridge is close by and Old Sturbridge Village is a fun place to visit and learn a little history. We enjoyed the pedal boat and I made a first attempt at using the Kayak. It's a quiet, private place.
I should warn you that the land line phone is not connected, so you will need your cell phone. I had good reception (Verizon) and it was not a problem.
