GREAT FAMILY GET AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the cottage for a week in July. We could not have been more pleased. Dan and Tina are wonderful; Tina was always around to help out or supply odds and ends when needed. We fished nightly, had a campfire, went out in the canoe several times and just relaxed. My girls were at a camp in Sturbridge for the week and this was a great place to come home to every night. We hope to be able to come back next summer!

THE LOCATION OF THIS COTTAGE IS FANTASTIC.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I travel back to New England each year for a family reunion. This cottage was perfect. The fishing off of the private pier was amazing. Our family would gather every night and fish, cook on the campfire, kayak and just enjoy the beautiful lake view. Dan and Tina could not have been more accommodating. We look forward to returning next year.

PERFECT SPOT TO SPEND A NEW ENGLAND FALL WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Douglas Cottage with three friends while we were in town for activities in Worcester. Dan and Tina were super accommodating and the house had everything we needed. The outdoor space is ideal for an afternoon BBQ with the lake as an amazing backdrop. I will definitely look up Dan and Tina next time I'm in town. Thanks!

A LOVELY WEEK IN JUNE...

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Dan and Tina's Douglas Cottage with our two 27-month old boys for a week in June and had a great time. Dan was very understanding about our need to "toddler-proof" the house and grounds and immediately addressed our safety concerns so that all four of us could securely enjoy our week.

And a lovely week it was! There was a small cove for our boys to wade and splash around in that Dan keeps replenished with fresh sand, and we took our meals at a table near the dock looking out over the quiet, beautiful lake. The boys loved the fish and frogs and birds that were all around.

The grounds are very well-kept and there are a number of different "mini-terrains" -- from the gazebo to a woodsy area -- for our toddlers to explore and enjoy. We also took the boys across the causeway to the national park right across the lake to walk the trails and see the beaver dam -- all very close and convenient. If we had wanted to go out on the lake (we didn't because the boys are still too small), there were boats and all the necessary gear (including lifejackets) for enjoying the water that way.

The cottage itself is very comfortable and clean, and well-stocked with appliances and so forth for making meals and relaxing after the boys were asleep. There's a nice sunroom-style enclosed porch where we spent a lot of time.

Stores and farm stands to stock up on supplies are within easy reach by car. Dan and Tina were always available to help but also respected our privacy; they are relaxed folks, and Tina is one the sweetest people you will ever have the good fortune to meet.

As you can tell, we enjoyed our stay and hope we can come back and do it again next summer!

GREAT FUN WITH LITTLE KIDS!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here with our 1 year old & 3 year old and had a really nice time. It's a small house on a very clean reservoir. Because you are next to the causeway on one side and a little patch of trees on the other, it feels much more private than some other lake houses which are right next to one another.

There is a sandy, shallow swimming spot that is nicely shaded; a dock with a ladder into waist-deep water; a canoe and paddles and lifejackets. There is a patio, table and grill, a spot for a fire outside and a gazebo to sit in. We canoed and fished and swam. I have very happy summer memories of this place.

The reservoir allows motors, so this would be an especially good spot for a someone looking for a low-key place to dock a boat.

You are just steps away from a park with walking trails which is nice. It's also about 10 minutes from grocery stores and KMart, WalMart, etc so it's easy to stock up when you have to.


The house itself is exactly as appears in the photos - not fancy, but comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the owners provide linens and bath towels. They live one house away and are extremely responsive and pleasant. We had to go to them mid-week for a small house-related problem which they resolved immediately & to our complete satisfaction. They're good people who really want their guests to have a positive experience -- but still stay out of your way. They were very easy to communicate with when setting up the rental, and promptly refunded my security deposit afterward. I truly couldn't ask for better hosts.
