A gorgeous house in a quiet location

4 of 5
We arrived in a 95 F heatwave. Unfortunately there are no ceiling fans or air con in this property and the first few days were just too hot particularly the upstairs bedroom. Perhaps some portable air con should be considered or at least a ceiling fan or two. The heatwave was not the fault of Will and Michelle of course and their welcome was warm and the house is eye popping. The fridge had all the immediate necessities and the kitchen was well equipped. Spotlessly clean everywhere with comfortable beds and areas to relax. The pass for the “town pond” beach was most welcome. This is in fact a beautiful lake just down the road. Beckett general store is good for casual meals and a warm welcome and cold beer. As the house is not far from the Massachusetts Turnpike it makes exploring easy. The only downside is that there is not much to do in the area other than visit the very pretty towns full of tourist shops.
