Guestbook comments from the manager

We recently booked a weekend adventure and stayed at kims hideaway in East Brookfield . We were celebrating our wedding anniversary as well as my birthday. Kim had given us fresh flowers on the table upon our arrival. It was so thoughtful! The apartment was exactly as described. Neat and clean with a ton of extras. Teas and candles were a nice touch and a very well stocked apartment with everything we needed. My husband lost his wallet ( for 2 hours) and Kim went above and beyond to help us find it. We eventually found it . He hid it ( don't ask why! Lol) Thanks Agian kim your the best

Cozy hideaway for a perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay and Kim was very accommodating! The hideaway is clean, comfortable and well stocked with kitchen supplies. Very quiet and tucked just off the main road with a great view of the lake. Met Guy on Sunday as he was cleaning up the dock after a snowstorm and enjoyed a brief conversation. Overall I would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning during the summer. Thank you for making it a great weekend!

This was our second stay at Kim’s Hideaway and we enjoyed it thoroughly! We were very cozy by the electric fireplace in the living room and watching the snow fall on the lake.

Great little find!

  • 5 of 5

We just wrapped up our second stay at Kim's lakeside hideaway. What a beautiful time of year to visit, with the fall colors across the lake beginning to pop. The reds are stunning! Kim's place is always clean, cozy and very welcoming, and Kim is very helpful and accommodating. You'll find everything you need, all on one, lower level, including a washer and dryer. The queen-sized bed is very comfortable. We would easily rent this place again, and highly recommend it. The only complaint I would have is the loud bar music at night (I assume that's where the music is coming from). However, turning on either of the large screen t.v.'s drowns the noise out, and it all ends at a reasonable hour anyway, so you can enjoy a good night's sleep.

Great little property - again

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed our second stay at this lovely little property and continue to "discover" new advantages to its location. The apartment itself is very efficient, clean, and well equipped with a great layout to accommodate a single or couple. In addition, there is a very quaint "mom-n-pop" diner located 2 doors down on the same side of the street that offers good breakfast and lunch choices at very reasonable prices. Another restaurant (with a bar) located 2 doors down in the opposite direction offers a full menu for lunch and dinner in a slightly upscale atmosphere that includes live music on weekends. Also, when in the mood for music while enjoying a drink, there is a bar located directly across the street from the diner where they have live music several nights a week. In other words we can easily get to any of these options without having to move our car! We are already booked at this property for our next trip to the area.

Plan a fall visit!

  • 5 of 5

We felt like having 5 days in New England, on a lake, quiet with views over the lake, a touch of fall in the air and the sounding of lapping water, AND in a pleasant private place where all we had to do was to arrive. We had it all. Kim's Lakeside Hide Away was totally comfortable, everything supplied and so clean & cosy. We stepped outside and sat down by the water, there was a canoe to use and a paddle boat if we wished, watched the Canada Geese on the water, ate in if we wished or dined out (plenty of places to go to), watched TV at night...totally lazed and relaxed. During the day we explored this fascinating 'Brookfield' area (loaded with history & little towns), visited farm stands, antique shops and drove to Worcester for a day (11 miles away) to explore and the 'Black Stone Heritage Corridor'...many places to hike or take a gentle walk through the woods. SO much to see and do, we will come back again. Thanks Kim for being such a helpful host & having such a neat place to stay!

Beautiful romantic weekend away right on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Kim was great to work with and very accommodating. Her place has all the amenities of home. There's also restaurants and entertainment within walking distance. Paddle boat was fun and it took me back to my days of youth. Definitely a great place to stay! We loved the chair swings overlooking the lake!
