Anastasia's place was just what our family of three needed as a home base for our explorations of the area. They keypad access made it so easy for us to come & go. Everything was very clean & well cared for, comfortable, simple, attractive, & the wi-fi access was really helpful. If we'd spent more time in the unit itself, I think we would've appreciated a little more room to spread out (the bathroom in particular is "cozy," but again, very clean). We would've liked some more places to sit & relax (the futon is really it, but since we needed to fold it out for extra sleeping space it wasn't really handy for lounging), and additional reading lamp or two would've been nice. But since we were out quite a bit (Walden Pond, the Minute Man National Historical Park, and historic Concord are all just minutes away) it served our needs perfectly. Overall, very well done, and Anastasia was a responsive and welcoming host. We'd definitely stay again.
This place was absolute paradise.
You have this small but very cosy and modern cottage about 25 meters from the lake, with a private little beach with real sand (kids loved it!), your own jetty, where you can fish from if you like, there’s a canoe, toys, beach chairs.. the first 10 meters of the water is not that deep, so perfect for smaller kids.
The lake is very quiet and idyllic, encapsulated in the woods, with lilies floating on the still water; especially in the morning it’s very beautiful. It is perfect to unhaste, unwind, unplug and disconnect (even though the internet works really well).
The cottage is great, with a private porch, big barbecue, very nice kitchen, bathroom and outdoor shower… everything we needed.
The location is also great, close to a supermarket, some nice towns near by, driving distance from Boston. The owner is very friendly and accommodating.. In short, we have zero complaints and nothing but praise.
Usually when we travel we like to explore the area as much as possible, but we found ourselves wanting to stay in to enjoy ‘our’ beach and lake.
I hesitate somewhat to recommend it, as I would hate to see it become too successful and perhaps we’d never get a chance to stay there again, but I’m also hoping for a discount next time. :-).
Would definitely recommend!
