Our mountain-view farmhouse sits on a 5 acre knoll, 300' from a quiet country road, surrounded by the sights and sounds of quintessential New England. The location of the property strikes a perfect balance between seclusion and convenience with access to hiking, kayaking, biking, parks, restaurants, grocery, and shopping close by. Restaurant food delivery of local favorites for Japanese (including sushi), Chinese, pizza, sub, salads, etc is available. See in-home guide for details.

The space
A framed view of Mount Wachusett is front and center as you pull into the driveway.

The house has solid flooring surfaces throughout (except carpeted stairs to lower level) and is 100% pet-free, down-free, and smoke-free (no exceptions please). The air is well filtered with our central heating and air conditioning system and there is a thermostat on each level of the home.

We consider comfortable sleeping to be an essential part of any guest experience. Our mattresses are all Tuft & Needle brand. Our pillows are down-free, with medium or firm shredded memory foam or poly fill. Additional pillow options may be available in the 1st floor bedroom closet.

Guest access
Guests are free to use the contents of home and yard, including the outdoor swings, which are for adult use only. Children may use the swings with continuous adult supervision only. The treadmill, stereo system, jetted tub, EPIC home theater, kitchen appliances, cutlery etc... are OK to use. Please enjoy all items with gentleness and due care. Be careful with kitchen cutlery as they are properly sharpened on a regular basis. Please hand wash all knives and cutting boards.

Guests are welcome to eat any ripe food found growing on the property during their stay , including asparagus, strawberry, raspberry, black raspberry, blackberry, gooseberry, currants, peaches, pears, plums, apples, grapes, etc... We ask that you pick only what is ripe, and leave what will not be eaten, or is not ripe, for the next guest.
