A Relaxing and Fun Adventure for the Entire Family

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked into the spacious, immaculate residence, it felt as if we were coming home. Every conceivable amenity was available from comfortable beds, baths, and a fully-equipped kitchen to the sparkling, blue pool in the expansive yard. The grandchildren loved popping in the Jacuzzi at night with its colored lights after swimming all day. We value our privacy, and this home is surrounded by nature making it entirely private. The landscaped grounds are beautifully maintained, and it's just a short jaunt into town for superlative seafood, a delightful private beach, and whale watching. The owners have thought of everything, right down to a fully-stocked game room for the children and a huge outdoor playground and basketball court. I loved reading on the huge deck, watching the swan and herons on Niles Pond, and watching the sailboats on the glittering Atlantic Ocean just beyond that. My daughter and her husband caught the nearby train to Boston several times to enjoy the town's nightlife, while the kids and Grammy were tucked into bed dreaming of the next day's adventures. I highly recommend this outstanding residence for a family getaway you'll all enjoy and always remember fondly!

A HOME FOR ALL SEASONS!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a long weekend (Presidents' Day) mini- family reunion at this comfortable Home! We had a Wonderful Time despite the frigid New England weather - the Home was cozy & warm! We braved the Cold and enjoyed many walks around the Lovely neighborhood! The two car garage was most helpful with the bone chilling Cold, too!

From the beginning, with my questions and concerns, the Owner worked with me and was helpful and accommodating.

The Owner also has two wonderful individuals near the Home to assist with any problems or concerns.

We were a party of nine with our canine child also joining us! From the Tall to the Small to the Fury- the Home accommodates everyone!

The views of Niles Pond and the Atlantic Ocean are terrific at all times of the day- You have one of the best views by the kitchen sink! So even those assigned to meal prep/clean-up can enjoy the view!

Linens and towels are provided which is a huge help and the kitchen is stocked with pans & dishes. Also, the grocery stores are not too far away.

The lower level of the Home is wonderful with a large playroom/family room, a full bathroom and two bedrooms. It was perfect for my daughter, son-in-law and 18mos. Grandson to afford them some private space. However, we all enjoyed the Billiard Table!!

The Home affords plenty of private space & plenty of family together space- the wonderful dining room table!

Also, if you like to read or love books, the Owner has an Amazing selection of books for all ages! Just checking out the book shelves is so interesting!!

This Home was an Amazing Retreat for our Mid-Winter Family Gathering! I can only imagine ( & hope to experience!) this Home in another season too!

The Acker Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

Easily accessible, very responsive with answers to our questions. Loved the view and peaceful view. It is a very large home. The main floor accommodated the 14 people in our group very nicely. We did not use the pool as the weather was a little chilly.

Amazing Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this incredible house for the second year in a row and have never regretted our decision. Amazing property, spacious, located on the shore of a beautiful pond, short drive from Boston and walking distance away from a convenience store - this house is perfect for a short weekend getaway or and extended vacation stay! It has everything that is advertised and much more. The owners and management are very helpful, responsive and a pleasure to work with overall. Everyone who stayed with us at this house can't wait to book it for next year! If you are looking for a perfect getaway look no further!
