BEAUTIFUL HOME ON THE LAKE AND A WONDERFUL OWNER!

  • 5 of 5
I want to start this off by saying I am not the type of leave reviews as I just never have the time or normally forget to do so. However, this experience deserves a 5 star review. I will start by saying that the Owner Diana is a wonderful person who is very accommodating. I even forgot 2 of my expensive pans at the home, and she kindly allowed me to retrieve them. The house is gorgeous! The pictures do not do it justice. We celebrated our daughters 1st Birthday party here and it was amazing! The kitchen is nicely designed, and the living room is so large and nicely designed as well. The fireplace is gorgeous to watch while you look outside at the beautiful lake view.

The bedrooms are all good sized. The linens were FRESHLY cleaned, and had that crisp hotel feeling. Every inch of the house was spotless. The owner has obviously put attention to detail on her list when it comes to designing her home to make it feel, "like home" for sure. Our party guests were so pleased with the look of the house, that a few ladies have saved this house as a possible rental for a 40th Birthday party.

If you are looking for a place to just kick back and relax, this house has everything you need. If you are throwing a small birthday party, this house is perfect as it is not cluttered, and can be designed so easily with decorations. I put up a 25 foot balloon arch over the fireplace, and it looked gorgeous.

Overall, I will definitely return to this home. It is gorgeous!! You will be pleased in every way.

Thanks Diana for allowing me to enjoy this home for my daughters 1st Birthday. Don't be surprised if we come back in the spring again :)

Regards,
The B Family

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
This house was amazing! Impeccably kept, beautifully situated, and with plenty of room for everyone in our party. The owner was very professional and friendly, and the property has been perfectly represented in the listing.

We did get to take a spin on the kayaks, which was super fun, but we were really in town for the Brimfield antiques shows (to which the house is very close), so come kayak time every day we were a bit beat.

I would absolutely recommend this property to a friend, but they might have to fight me for it in May, July, and September!

WONDERFUL HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this house. The kitchen and both bathrooms are brand new. The house has 3 good sized bedrooms (listing states 2 bedrooms) and a sofa bed in the walk out basement which worked so well for a family of 4 and a guest. The house was spacious and clean and the owner was very helpful and accommodating, and even included complementary soaps and shampoos. The property is very private and on a beautiful pristine lake, but the walk down is pretty steep. We used the 2 kayaks and tubes everyday and we fished in the lake, but didn't catch anything over 6", although we heard there are some big fish in there. The deck is ideal for relaxing with a beautiful view. Sturbridge is an easy 15 minute drive and we all enjoyed the village and the shops.

There is no land line and while our guest had no problem using his cell phone, we could not get a signal. We had a bad storm one evening and used the fireplace, which made for a cozy evening.

We would definitely return. We had a great time and really loved the house!
