Why Katrina Ringer chose Central Massachusetts

Golf at the Reese Jones Blackstone National Golf Course - 10 minutes, Brimfield Flea Market-May/July/Sept - 40 minutes, Newport Mansions - 1hr. Horseback riding, beaches, hiking and biking in the Douglas State Forest - next door. We are in southern Worcester county bordering Ct. and RI. Great location as it is near Rt146, RT. 395, RT. 290, and 10min. to the Mass. Pike. We are located on Lake Manchaug in Douglas. The lake is approx. 7 miles around.

There are many vineyards nearby - Taylor Brook to name just one and we are very close to a wonderful section of Ct. Woodstock, Pomfret and Putnam which are full of antique shops. Go ahead... use Google to find your own local attractions... we did.

Douglas and the lake area is like being in Maine without the long drive and the traffic.

Gorgeous Relaxing Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying in this beautiful location. We spent 2 wonderful weeks swimming, boating, and entertaining family and friends. The house is clean and well maintained and also has central air! The yard is huge! There are plenty of areas to "get away" from everything. Love it here!

Wonderful and Private Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

What a great place - very private, quiet and the lake views are amazing from everywhere on the property This part of Massachusetts is beautiful and the lake is much quieter than some of the lakes in New Hampshire or Maine, without a lot of speed boats, especially during the week. The yard is quite large with plenty of seating areas and chairs, allowing you the option to sit in the sun or the shade. There is also a couple of picnic tables. Katrina leaves you with everything you need - a kayak, rowboat and canoes you can use to explore the lake, plenty of towels if you choose to swim or just dip your tows and a nice large grill for barbecuing. The house is nice, clean and spacious - lots of windows and good natural light. We would definitely come back again.

Scenic Wonderland in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The PERFECT spot for our family to meet for a long weekend. Immaculate home, kitchen stocked with all the cooking utensils you'll need, great open plan from living to dining to kitchen to all be together. Plenty of space with all the decks, screened porch, adirondack chairs,'s paradise. From sunrise to sunset the views are incredible. Our family enjoyed hanging around the outdoor firepit, making s'mores, fishing from the dock, taking rowboat rides around the lake, bbq'ing on the deck, the changing reflections in the water plus the foliage completed the backdrop for our family soccer or softball games in the huge front yard. Don't miss Whittier Farm at end of road for amazing homemade pies, fresh vegetables, jams, premade dinners and more. A day trip to Sturbridge was our only time off property and we could not wait to get back! We would definitely recommend this property and return ourselves. The owner, Katrina, was great to work with and promptly answered any questions.

Slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to take my mom somewhere where she could recover from a long hospital stay , When we pulled up to the house and she got out of the car there were tears in her eyes..., The water surrounds the entire house with breath taking views from all the rooms in the house, The pictures do not do this place justice , It is one of the most amazing water front properties I have ever seen with a huge yard with so many sitting areas and So private.

The inside was also beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed.

We ended up staying a couple of extra days because we really did not want to leave.

We barbecued, fished, went kyaking , and enjoyed making smores and sitting around the fire pit with the family enjoying 9 days of perfect sunny days in the mid 70's, not one drop of rain...Perfect gift from God!

I am hoping to return next year to bring the family together again.

A special Thankyou to the owner Katrina for making this beautiful vacation possible to help my mom recover, I am forever thankful

Excellent Vacation Destination !!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we rented your beautiful home. We had a great time. My mom is 93yrs. old and she loves your place. She said " I hate to leave here, I wished we lived here." We spent time on the deck sunning, ate a lot of meals out in the screened porch. My husband went fishing. The dogs also have a great time swimming and exploring. I had the grandchildren come for the day and they had a great time swimming and playing games. We love your home and will be back next year. It is very relaxing, quiet, private and just a wonderful vacation place. Thank you again for having us. See you next year !!!
