Sterling house description

Welcome to our lake house located on a private way deep in the heart of Sterling, MA. Our house is located right on Lake Waushacum, surrounded by natural preserves, reservoirs, tall pine, and endless activities most notably, swimming, boating, fishing, sunbathing and antiquing. You are surrounded by apple orchards and organic farms. Enjoy, relax and take back the scenery during any season. Since we have young children of our own, we made sure you have toys available along with Graco baby swing chair, high chair and children's books. We offer Beautyrest mattress and boxspring sets for every room, including 2 Queens beds, the crib and the twin bunk bed. We offer a 16' Canoe so you can take a paddle out on the beautiful lake and a brand new Grill for your outdoor enjoyment.

LOCAL TIPS:

Less than 13 miles from our home is WACHUSETT MOUNTAIN has a long history of tourism on the mountain. Summet Elavation - 2,000 feet, Vertical Drop - 1,000 feet, 22 trails, 110 acres of skiable terrain, snow making, The longest trail is 1 1/2 miles on “Balance Rock.”. Over 600,000 people visit the mountain year round with at least half of that number visiting the Wachusett Mountain State Reservation in the summer and fall. The Learning Center at Wachusett Mountain offers Special Beginner Packages to Advanced Training Clinics. The Wachusett Mountain Ski School gives class lessons daily (both private and semi private lessons are also available.) The mountain boasts the largest ski school (200 instructors) in Massachusetts. Over 10,000 Beginner Ski School lessons are taught annually. Complete rental shop featuring more than 2000 pairs of Head shaped skis and more than 800 Head snowboards. Special features available for the children ages 4-12 include the Polar Kids, Polar Den Club and Polar Playground. The 38,000-square-foot Wachusett Mountain Base Lodge, cited for excellence in architectural design, boasts a warm, comfortable atmosphere with exposed beam construction, a huge fireplace and sun decks surrounding the building.

If you want to make your own NEW ENGLAND CLAMBAKE, my favorite stop is West Boylston's SEAFOOD Market. To get there, turn left on Route 12 about 6 miles, and it's on the left hand side. They have the freshest fish, shrimp, claims, lobsters at great prices. A local 'specialty' is the New England Clam Chowder or Lobster Bisque, it's delicious with crackers as an appetizer.

2 Must Stops only minutes away from the lake house include the Clearview Farms and Roto-Spring Farms:

CLEARVIEW FARM is a 32 acre seasonal orchard and farm stand run by Rick and Diane Melone. It is located at 4 Kendall Hill Road in Sterling, Massachusetts. This farm has an interesting historical background because of it’s ties to the home of Mary E. Sawyer, the little girl in the nursery rhyme “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” A statue in the center of Sterling commemorates Mary and her lamb. Diane is a sixth generation descendant of Mary and currently owns the Sawyer homestead. Rick still farms some of the original Sawyer farmland. This site has been a farm for 200 years and in this family 6 generations. The farm includes: 20 acres of apples, 4 acres of peaches and nectarines, 12 acres of pumpkins, 6 acres raspberries and blueberries, 2 acres of other vegetables.

ROTO-SPRING FARM offers over 50 varieties of HOME MADE ICE CREAM, organic fed meat, produce, fruit, eggs and they even have a petting zoo for little ones. Be sure to look at their calendar of events such a hay rides, pumpkin festivals, etc...

I recently discovered Cutie Patutie’s Consignment shop full of inexpensive, gently used merchandise. To get there, turn right on Route 12 toward Leominster about 6 miles, and it's on the left hand side. They have a lot of useful items for reasonable prices. It's a great place to pick up odds and ends along with toys and books for children.

The Sterling Town Clerk's Office serves as a vendor for MASS WILDLIFE, for issuing fishing, trapping, hunting and sporting licenses and stamps. Licenses are available when the office is open to the public: Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Licenses may also be purchased online please refer to the URL link added on this site.

Town History:

THE TOWN OF STERLING Massachusetts was founded in 1781 and is located in the Worcester County area and is set at the foothills of Mount Wachusett. Sterling was named for the Earl of Sterling, a Scottish Lord. Sterling is home of Mary Sawyer of 'Mary had a little lamb' fame. There is a statue of the lamb in the Town Common which attracts many visitors each year. Every year during the month of September the Sterling Town Fair attracts many people from near and far who enjoy the many attractions of the fair which include horse and oxen pulls as well as game booths, rides, food and music and much much more!
