Come enjoy this unique and beautiful retreat home, set on 50 acres of wooded land, with a breath-taking view over a 2 mile long, 190-acre body of water, and no houses in sight! Peaceful, healing haven, and great get-away spot for a romantic weekend or family vacation. Perfect for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and hiking--or just relaxing in a hammock, on the deck, or in a bedroom overlooking the water. Comfortably accommodates from 1 to 11!

Play in the sandy shallows near the dock; swim to an island and back; explore the water in a canoe, kayak, or rowboat; or fish to your heart’s content. There are no jet skis or gas-powered motor boats on the lake, so it very peaceful and perfect for swimming and boating. Hike on our private trails. Or just gaze at the water, and curved, forested shores, and breathe in the peace and quiet and beauty.

The house, built in the 1920s with antique lumber from the owner's mill, is beautiful, simple, comfortable, and spacious. The first floor has a large, fully equipped kitchen with a cozy breakfast nook. There is also a beautiful dining room with a fireplace for more formal meals and celebrations, and a screened-in porch with a large dining table and hammocks, both overlooking the water. These rooms connect to an expansive and comfy living room, with a beautiful stone fireplace, also overlooking the water. The second floor has a master bedroom with a fireplace and bathroom and water views on two sides. There are three other, good-sized bedrooms, two of which face the water, and a second bathroom with a shower and antique claw-foot tub for soaking. A large outdoor deck on the water’s edge is another great place to take in the water, woods, and ample wildlife, including turtles, blue heron, owls, and an occasional beaver.
30 minute (15 miles) drive from Worcester; 51 minutes (34 miles) from Amherst.; 1 ½ hours (61 miles) from Boston, 3 hours from NYC.

We hope you will come and experience the tranquility and beauty of our home and the surrounding area. We have many precious memories of gatherings of family and friends in this unique spot, and trust that your stay will provide the same. While this is a great place for get-togethers of families and/or friends, and alcohol is allowed, we are not looking to rent to those who are planning to have loud parties or make excessive noise.
Please read the house manual before your stay. Guests are welcome to use the boats. Wipes and sanitary items should not be flushed in any of the house toilets. There is no smoking allowed in the house and we also do not allow pets. We reserve the right to ask people who are not following the rules and guidelines to vacate before the end of their stay without a refund. Most importantly, it is our family home most of which is irreplaceable and we want it to be treated respectfully. Thank you!
New England forests have ticks that can carry lyme, so take precautions if you're walking in the woods; the 1/2 mile long driveway is also a beautiful walk.

The house and property blew us away - it was the perfect escape from the big city; probably the best airbnb experience we have ever had. Truly relaxing, charming, full if history and feel very lucky that the house is now open to new visitors.

What an amazing place to spend some down time. We enjoyed the natural and quiet beauty surrounding the home and found it to be a relaxing stay. We enjoyed kayaking, canoeing, fishing, swimming on the lake and riding our bikes on the Mass Central trail Railway trail and we also saw and heard a variety of wildlife each day. We also had time to venture out for ice cream and found the local area to be accessible and laid back. Would recommend this spot to anyone looking to take a break and recharge.

This was our second time at Julie's and Morgan's lake house. This place is a rare gem. If you're looking for a secluded house on a lake with breathtaking views, this is it.

If you want a peaceful, relaxing, place on a beautiful pond this is the place to be. It was just about the family and talking around a camp fire, cooking outside (or inside if you want), kayaking and canoeing together and just enjoying the family and the outdoors. We were seldom in the house, except to sleep. You can be as active as you want or you can just sit and enjoy the peace and the beautiful view of Brooks Pond. Thank you Morgan and Julie!

What a special, magical place! Everything about this property far exceeded our expectations. The house itself if right out of a story book, with quirky and interesting details throughout. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms stocked with shampoo, soap and towels. The kitchen has every pot, pan, dish, and utensil you would ever need. We had 4 kids and 6 adults, and spent the days canoeing and kayaking, swimming, walking through the woods, relaxing in the hammocks on the screened-in porch, cooking, eating, and just hanging out on the beautiful deck overlooking the lake. There was never a reason to leave the property all weekend. I highly recommend staying here--you'll never want to leave.

Julie's home on the lake is truly a magical place to stay. If you're looking for a place in nature, on a lake, which is secluded and still has all the comforts of a nice house with adorable charm and character, and fully equipped kitchen, look no further. We were a group of 6 adults and two kids and were very comfortable. We spent our entire time (3 nights) at the house and never wanted to go anywhere else. We spent hours fishing, boating (kayak, canoe and rowboat), swimming and bit of hiking. We also picked lots of blueberries from our canoe. Our evenings were spent preparing dinner, grilling, and then eating dinner in the beautiful dining room. I can't wait till we'll be able to visit again!!
