Wonderful home! We were there for the Brimfield Flea Market and it was easy to get too from the house! Wonderful lake, very clear. Enjoyed the kayaks! Would stay again!
Diana was so awesome to interact with- always prompt on her responses and incredibly helpful during all aspects of our booking and stay. Her home is absolutely gorgeous inside and out, and was immaculate upon our arrival. The location was ideal for us during our son's wedding at the Publick House because it was only a 10 minute drive to all the pre-wedding and wedding activities. I highly recommend this property and this owner!
We stayed here during a sweltering week in July, 2016, and really appreciated the central air. The house is spacious and well-equipped and I have little to add to the many positive reviews except to note that according to the owner the house has heat and is suitable for fall and presumably winter rentals (I asked about Thanksgiving, specifically). The owner, Diana, is very responsive and accommodating. Very nice place indeed.
This place is great. Our family of 5 spent 4 nights here in August of 2016 and couldnt have asked for anything more. Diana was very easy to get a hold of- very responsive to us. The place was in really good shape and we LOVED the lake and Kayaks. We loved the location. Boston was only an hour away and we were able to get to all around New England easy from here.
If you are traveling to this area and want a clean, comfortable, centrally located vacation spot with lake access- this is the place for you.
I rented this home for a guy's weekend themed around playing Disc Golf. The house is great. It is very spacious and has a great lakefront location. Canoeing around the lake was amazing. We were also two minutes away from Main Attraction, a small establishment that served me the best lobster rolls that I've had in years. The house is located withing 15-20 mins away from several disc golf courses and we really had a great time playing with the locals. Diana is great. She is very easy to get in touch with and promptly returned our deposit in 3 days. I recommend this home to anyone travelling to Holland/Sturbridge.
Great place for anyone who is looking for a relaxing place to kayak, canoe and fish. We went for a long Memorial Day weekend and spent most of our time either on the lake or sitting on the deck enjoying the beautiful view. There is a lot to do in the area but because the weather was so good we had no reason to venture off and chose to enjoy the lake. The house was very spacious and very clean. Diana was very easy to communicate with for booking the weekend as well as being available during our stay. The deposit was returned within a week. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again!!
