About Cliff & Cindy Leinonen

Cliff and Cindy are local real estate experts in the Brookfields and surrounding towns. We own our own real estate office and have been in the business since 2000. We have been a couple for 17+ years and got married in 2009. We have lived in the area our entire lives. Cliff graduated from UMass Lowell and Cindy graduated from Quinsigamond Community College. Both with degrees in Business Management.

Cliff & Cindy Leinonen purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Cliff & Cindy Leinonen chose East Brookfield

We bought this property because we love to travel and unwind. This home provided us an opportunity to be close to everything and run our business from home, being it is a downtown location, while having the luxury of lakeside living. We enjoy having restaurants next door and across the street as well as a small bar that plays live music. There are also churches, golf, bowling, grocery stores, farmers market, etc within minutes of our home. It was the perfect location for us.

What makes this apartment unique

Our home directly overhangs the water. You don't have to walk far to be relaxing by the beach. You can walk to local restaurants and bars which are across the street and next door. You can also walk to the town beach which is less than a mile away.

Sitting out on the deck in the evening with a nice glass of wine watching the sunset is always a favorite of ours and our guests. The views are amazing!

We do have a beach to sit and relax on and put your toes in the water if you don't want to swim. A lot of houses on the lake do not have an actual sandy area. We do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pure pleasure to be here. Felt cared for and respected. Great luck with future real estate. Hope to see you again soon!

This home is not baby proofed. Children over the age of 6 preferred due to high stone walls and safety. Internet is for entertainment purposes only. It is reliable, but not guaranteed. While we strive to have everything in running order, unfortunately equipment failures do happen and cannot always be controlled. If this happens we will work to have it up and running and soon as possible.

The lake was beautiful. Cindy and Cliff were very friendly and helpful.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the view of lake, kayaking was fun. Being on main street was a downfall. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed, except for the no stick frying pan we bought for them which is a must. I would brighten up the kitchen area, rather than have it so dark. Just suggestions to better the visual part of it as we enjoyed our stay but some things,could be changed to better the stay for guests. Rooms were good sizes, but lighter colors would really change the character of the cottage . Anne & John

We can highly recommend the appartment. The kitchen has all you need for cooking, the beds are comfortable. The appartment is very clean and we loved it to be there. All the time we went to the windows for to look over the lake. It was so beautiful. And if you like to swim, it is perfect. Only a few steps and you are in the water.

Thanks so much, Cindy and Cliff. If it would be possible in the future we will come back.

Did not stay, but the interaction says it all

  • 5 of 5

My grandmother was put on hospice, and I got a call from my mother than she'd flown to Mass to be by her mother's side. She asked me to come, and I needed to quickly locate a house so that she could stay with me. I left a message for Cindy, she returned my call promptly, and I was able to book. Later that afternoon, my grandmother passed away. My mother called and told me not to come, that they would be holding a service for her, but not until later in the year. At this point I thought for sure I'd be out the money I paid for the house, but Cindy returned my message and let me know that they would be refunding it to me. I was shocked, and extremely happy. They made an already stressful and difficult time so much less difficult. I do look forward to staying with them in the future, but in the mean time, I cannot say enough about their generosity.

Our Waterfront rental is located in a beautiful sunny spot. Perfect for viewing the amazing sunsets on our large 30' x 10' deck. You will love the magnificent views of the lake. This is a 293 acre, full recreational lake. There is a public boat ramp and we have a dock to moor at. The fall is also a beautiful time to visit for the foliage, apple picking, and antique fair in Brimfield. There is a man who does hot air balloon rides over the lake, too. We have 3 kayaks for renter use. We are also close to the Brimfield Antique Show if you are looking for lodging. Bring your boat, jet ski, fishing boat, whatever and have a blast!! We are also located in the downtown which is a quaint area with a breakfast/lunch spot next door, a pizza place across the street and a bar with live music on some nights across the street and a waterfront restaurant with an outdoor eating area just a few doors east of us. The town beach is less than 1 mile from the house if want a larger beach area than what is at the house. Golfing and bowling are close by as well as apple orchards and shopping.

Other Activities: Brimfield Flea Market, Apple picking, Boating,

Golf: Baypath Golf Course is right around the corner on Rte 67 heading towards North Brookfield. There is also Leicester Country Club in Leicester.
