John's place was perfect a quiet R & R! The views of the pond from almost every window and patio are charming.Everything you could want was provided including some staples in the very well equipped kitchen. The apartment felt very private and John was a very considerate host. We plan on coming back.

John is a very conscientious host. We really brought napkins and cooking things with us but he had all that ready for us. Just bring your bare necessities when visiting John as he has provided the Rest. The area inside and out is perfect.

My stay at John's was magical. John was a very mindful and accommodating host. The apartment was charming and well equipped. I couldn't ask for a more peaceful view of John's beautiful yard and private lake. This place is a must-stay.

Our group of three had a nice time by the lake for a quick weekend getaway. Great nature / hiking options nearby, and John has some good maps and recommendations. We didn't have time to use the boats and enjoy the lake this time around, may have to make a return trip! One queen bed and a pull-out couch, John also offered us an air mattress as an alternative to the sofa bed. Thanks again!

My husband, daughter and I spent a few days at John's place to have a little R&R and do some fishing. We had a great time and John was a really nice guy and great host. The apartment is a garden level / lower level unit that is very spacious for a 1 BR, and has a sliding doors to the back yard, with lake views. The space was very clean and cozy. To access the apartment you must go through John's private home, which turned out to be no big deal but was not what we expected. We fished from the little floating dock off of his yard and caught yellow perch, a bluegill and a chain pickerel. We also went for a hike nearby and spent some time in the town of Sturbridge, which was a beautiful 20-minute drive.
