Peaceful and quiet home surrounded by woods on a very private, single lane dirt road. The beautiful yard is grassy level and very large with 200+ ft. of water frontage with docks, decks and patio. The driveway continues into a boat launch ramp. The yard is large enough for events like weddings and reunions with a maximum of approximately 60 people. (For events, please see "Other things to note" below.) The driveway can accommodate approximately 12 cars. There is very little on-street parking.

The space

Conveniently located in No. Central Mass. even though the immediate surroundings look like you are far away from it all. It is 2 miles to downtown Westminster which is a small town but with all the conveniences and necessities. The house has a fully-finished walk-out basement, a main 1st floor and 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor. There is one bathroom on the basement level and one on the 1st floor main level, both of which have shower stalls, not bathtubs. There are no bathrooms on the 2nd floor bedroom level yet because those are planned in the next addition.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house, yard, boats etc. There are 4 kayaks, one canoe, one Sunfish sailboat, 2 paddle boats and a 12' v-bottom aluminum rowboat. Also there are two BBQ grills, a fire pit, horseshoes, volleyball, badminton and a lot of lawn furniture. It sits on a 1 1/2 acre lot. The house has wifi, Comcast on demand with 6 flat panel TV's from 32" up to 60", 3 dishwashers and 2 microwaves. There are complete linens, towels, full kitchenware and cookingware. All the usual condiments are in the cupboards like salt, pepper, olive oil, spices, garlic etc. There is always coffee, cream and asst'd sweeteners, plus a lot more condiments in the fridge. There are extra folding tables for more dining space and 6 air mattresses for more sleeping space.

Interaction with guests

There is a keyless combination door lock and you can let yourselves in or, if you prefer, I will greet the first guests arriving for a quick showing and any questions and then I will be staying in Leominster for the duration of your visit, which is about 20 minutes away. I will be accessible by phone/text/email 24/7 for any questions. I,and/or the cleaning ladies and lawn maintenance people, will return only after the last guests have checked-out.

Other things to note

There are a lot of requests for large events, especially weddings, and I would like to accommodate those requests. . There is special pricing for events. I just need to know the type of event, how many people attending the event, how many people staying overnight which is usually a 16 person maximum, but some guests exceed that and there have been up to 25 sleeping in the house. Also, approximately how many cars and if you would like me to arrange off-site parking at a nearby motel. Because the neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful, and sound travels across the water a lot, a large and loud event would disturb it, so I don't allow DJ's or live bands with loudspeakers. The largest tent that fits in the yard where the volleyball court is would be 30' x 60' but usually a 20' x 40' tent is plenty large enough for the maximum of 60 people. I'll try to accommodate any events of approximately these parameters, however they're not etched in stone so just let me know what you have in mind.

Tony’s house is gorgeous and is ONLY second to the incredible privacy and sprawling yard. Full of different areas to enjoy daytime activities and perfect for late nights around the fire pit, this place is a dream come true. Tony is incredibly fast to respond to any questions you may have even before the booking takes place. As a first or second time renter, I couldn’t have asked for a better owner or experience once we arrived. Thanks, Tony!

There were 12 of us--3 families and there was plenty of space for us. We were here for a couple of days around Thanksgiving, but there's a lot to do inside and outside. We made a fire in the living room's wood stove. Plenty of space for everyone to hang out. Huge collection of movies as well as 2 guitars , a keyboard and karaoke. It's right on the lake, which is beautiful. The yard is very level, is sheltered by trees and gets a lot of sun. We played volleyball and badminton at the end of November in t-shirts because the yard was so sunny and warm. It would have been nice to have an extra half bathroom, but we managed fine without it. We'd definitely come to back.

Tony's home was perfect for my father-in-law's Celebration of Life. The two lower levels provided a great layout for entertaining. I received many compliments on my location choice. While the home is not overly fancy or formal, everything was very comfortable we found the kitchen very usable and appreciated how it opened up right into the living room. My father-in-law was an avid skier and the view of Wachusett Mountain was really perfect. The road driving in was a little rough, but nothing my small sedan couldn't handle. My favorite part was my morning coffee on the dock, after a light dusting of snow. So peaceful. Friends were saying they'd love to visit again--either in the summer to enjoy the lake or in the winter for a ski trip. Thanks Tony!

This house is awesome! Tony literally has everything you need already available at his property. If you need it, it’s there and if you need more, he communicates right away. Great view on the late and lots of activities. Thanks for the great stay, Tony!

You can't ask for a better host and property. We were luck to have Tony as our host for a beautiful small wedding. 100% worth it. Coming back soon!

*STAY HERE* Really, I can't plead with you but if you are looking for an amazing place to stay with a host that will treat you like gold this is it. We rented this house as a place for the wedding party and other guests for my sisters wedding (about 18-20 people in total). The house is amazing and Tony goes above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful stay. Honestly the only bad thing about it was having to leave so if you can add a few days onto your stay here because you will want them! All the guests were amazed by the house and we were all saying we could have had the wedding there. Tony also made our stay really easy with his flexibility and willingness to go above and beyond. Thank you for making my little sisters weekend truly special!
