Sturbridge Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Three Bedrooms, Lower Level Bunk Bed, One Bath, Sleeps Six

A year round cottage situated on a quiet private lake where you can fish, canoe and boat. Enjoy the serenity of being by the lake, quiet, peaceful and relaxing! This three bedroom cottage is situated on Beaver Lake with its own deck, patio, beach, dock and floating dock. There is a paddle boat, row boat and canoe for your use. There are bikes that will allow you to explore the surrounding area. Enjoy an outside fire in the Chiminea on the deck, sip coffee in the Adirondack chairs on the dock and watch the geese and ducks on the water. Relax near the water in a comfortable, cozy well equipped cottage. Life jackets for boating and some helmets for biking are available.

If it rains play fooseball or bumper pool, games or cards or sit outside on the sheltered patio and read.

Relax with family and friends.

Canoe, row or swim. The lake has a horse power limit so noise and waves are kept to a minimum. Fish or bird watch, play games or do puzzles.

The tall pines, the calm lake water and the view make this a relaxing and enjoyable place to be!

About Peter

We enjoy the outdoors, boating, swimming, hiking and bike riding. We find the quiet at the lake cottage, after a busy week, refreshing and relaxing.

Peter purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Peter chose Sturbridge

The quiet location, the pleasant view from this cottage situated on a private lake was the place we wanted to go to relax and enjoy active leisure time on the lake.

What makes this cottage unique

The view from the patio door and picture window along with the large deck and cozy feeling of this lake side cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect family spot for family

  • 5 of 5
"Mommy -- its a kitchen living room" exclaimed my 4 year old and we entered the main living space. An extended kitchen counter abuts the combined dining/living area, with view stunning lake views. But what I liked best was that I could see the kids playing in the beach/dock area from the main living space and outside deck. I could thus be connected with multiple aspects of the family at the same time.

I appreciated the three 'upstairs' bedrooms (main floor) adjacent to each other; and then the downstairs extra room (also game room) in the finished basement. The lovely thing about the finished basement was that it opened onto a patio sitting area, that also faced the lake. We had a lot of fun with the paddle boat (good for young kids); didn't get around to using the other boats but look to doing that on another trip. I also liked how many toys and games were available for children, both inside toys, and beach toys. Plus there were bikes!

And finally -- easy hikes / walks at the nearby Quabbin reservoir. I sent this note to a friend:

"The reservoir is huge and breathtaking. Fun trails crossing the many little streams that feed the dammed basin. Lot of discussion with the kids about how we can't swim in it because it is drinking water -- the boys then proceeded to lap the water kitty-style, pronouncing it delicious. That and dozen more funny moments."

Beaver Lakeside stay a hit!

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay lakeside at Beaver Lake. The property was very clean, well provisioned, comfortable beds, and perfect for a graduation weekend. Quite roomy for 5; much added bonus was the extensive boating options, beach and back porch lakeside. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Comfortable, nice view, relaxing

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our 5-day stay at this lovely house as part of our trip to visit family in Amherst. It was comfortable, well-stocked with all the things you'd need to enjoy a vacation on a lake. We used the paddleboat a few times, and the canoe once. We swam in the lake every day and enjoyed watching the water and wildlife. Peter was a wonderful host and very accommodating with some unique needs we had. We'd recommend the place to others who have plans to be in central Massachusetts.

Great Lake House

  • 4 of 5
This little lake house is all about location. As you approach the home the first thing you see is the lake. It was a very quiet and peaceful stay. Very accurate description, property was clean (was a little musty because of a lot of rain before we arrived). Amazing ammenities for outdoor and indoor fun. Extremely friendly and accomodating homeowner which made our stay that much more enjoyable.

Would reccomend this propery for people looking for an lrelaxing ake experience.

Also 20 min drive to Brimfield flea.

Relaxing Sailing and Boating!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect cottage for a quiet getaway. The lake is amazing, a great view and nice to swim and boat in. The deck was a lot of fun, we grilled and had a fire in the outdoor fire place. The house is nice, it is modern and has everything you could need. We cooked some great meals and had fun watching movies and playing games. Peter was very nice and answered all of our questions. I would recommend this property to my friends!
