HANDCRAFTED NEW ENGLAND CAPE, PRIVATE GROUNDS, PERFECT FAMILY RETREAT, WORC10MIN

Worcester Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Charming Five Bedroom, Spacious, Beautiful Grounds, Bring the Family

Sarah’s Haven is a Nelson Phipps beautifully handcrafted Cape in the heart of Massachusetts built in 1953 from the lumber milled from the land. All the walls are original pine board walls, handcrafted cabinetry, red oak floors, with a huge central stone fireplace gracing the living room. It has nine rooms, five bedrooms, and can sleep 10-11.

Sarah’s Haven sits on over four acres of pristine privacy overlooking it’s own pond. Daffodils, irises, and lilies abound in the spring, while azaleas, butterfly bushes, orange blossoms, and trumpet vines follow all summer.

Bask in the summer warmth or swing on the rope swing, hike trails, or just enjoy the tranquility and natural beauty surrounding this home. Huge picture windows look out over the pond and the acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. It's the perfect hide-a-way for the whole family.

All this is within ten minutes of downtown Worcester attractions: theaters, colleges, medical facilities, DCU events, and museums.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

  • 4 of 5
plenty of room in this house lovely surroundings and area good and safe .the only real issue was the meeting with the owner right at the start of the holiday she was ok but walking through to the kitchen we were greeted by several members of her family as well .not wanted or needed after travelling most of the day .

Owner's Response: I am so sorry this guest was upset by meeting some family members. When I am waiting for guests to arrive, occasionally my elderly Aunt and a cousin come and keep me company. When guests arrive, they promptly get up and leave, greeting the incoming guests on their way out. Then I show the guests the property. I'm sorry this inconvienced this guest and can understand their feelings after a long day of travelling.

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5
I don't know what could have been better about this house. It was beautiful, very roomy, well-appointed, and comfortable. Large backyard and fishing pond was great fun for the kids. The house is located in a very private, wooded area, which we found very relaxing and enjoyable. We started as a group of 4 adults and 4 children and traveled to Massachussets because the kids were participating in an ice skating competition in Marlborough. Due to an emergency, we ended up with 2 extra people sleeping over, and the house comfortably accommodated us all.

Perfectly located; nestled in the woods!

  • 5 of 5
My writing group rented Sarah's Haven for a week of workshopping manuscripts and to visit literary places in MA. We found the house charming and comfortable, with plenty of mod cons and rooms, a lovely yard where we worked outside at times and a large indoor table, too. On those days we went for visits, we were perfectly central between Amherst and Concord, roughly an hour in each direction, for day trips out to literary haunts. A wonderful home with a ton of history and loving charm oozing from its pores. The house was hand built by Nelson Phipps for his wife Sarah and their children and its a bounty of wood hewn from the land, organization and storage. We would highly recommend this with its large yard for any large gathering.

Very comfortable home away

  • 5 of 5
My extended family really enjoyed this wonderfull home as our base camp for gradation festivities at WPI. Seeing the wood working craftsmanship was worth the trip for me. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen was very well equiped. Bird watching was great too. We would definitely stay at Sarah's again if we are back in the area.

Just Like Home

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful cozy home. My family and I were attending a conference in Worcester and needed a place to house us all. Sarah met me promptly at 4 pm and gave me the key. What more can I say. It was a pleasure to stay in such a lovely home. We definitely will come back again.
