Overview

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

Wonderful home.

  • 5 of 5
This is a most wonderful property.
Our family and friends enjoyed our stay more than we can say.
The house is simply charming, the grounds are lovely and the location is very private but still close to Worcester.
Rebecca (home owner / property manager) was a delight and when I realized I forgot my purse and laptop behind she went out of her way to meet me and return them.
Whew.
We hope to return again for years to come.

Great Place for a Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we stepped into the house, it felt like "home". Our two adult children and their families joined my husband and I to celebrate his 70th birthday. The bedrooms were a perfect set up for us. The parents had a bedroom with the children's rooms next to theirs. My husband, a light sleeper, chose the room away from all the giggling. The wood work in the house was wonderful (especially the locks!!!). My husband's hobby is woodworking and even he was impressed (we have similar paneling and "natural" tables and lamps in our home). We played soccer until dark in the large yard, and the adults also enjoyed the rope swing. The nearby trails were a bonus for early morning walks. Thanks for sharing your home with our family and helping make more great memories.

Beautiful Home With Lots of Character

  • 5 of 5
This was the most beautiful home we have ever rented through this site. There were six adults and one child staying in the home and it accomodated us nicely. The beds were comfortable, everything we needed was provided and the swings and rope swing provided for hours of fun. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to friends that were going to be in that area.

  • 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.
