Property description

‘The Peni’

This year-round vacation home (1,800 square feet) has been in our family for three generations. It has an exceptional location on a private peninsula with 1,500 feet of water frontage. Every room of the house has stunning views of Lake Hamilton. The main house has three bedrooms (a queen, a double, and a single with two single beds), and two baths. The kitchen and bathrooms (both with showers, no tub) were renovated in 2011. The living room and west bedroom were renovated in 2013. There is a gated private drive with plenty of parking. The long shoreline supports a variety of wildlife. You are likely to see great blue heron, ducks, geese, cormorants. The lake is stocked, and the deeper waters just off the south shore are considered some of the best fishing on the lake. There is a public boat launch a hundred feet from our driveway, and the property has a dock as well as a raft.

Each season provides special vacation opportunities; swimming, boating, fishing, fall foliage, ice fishing and skiing. There are also activities and events weekly at Old
Sturbridge Village.
No Smoking in the buildings.

Keywords: lake house, year round vacation home, surrounded by water, leaf peaking.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1926

About the owner: We are three siblings (Zabby, John, and Robin) who are sharing the family project of renting 'The Peni' where we spent all our childhood summers swimming, boating, fishing, playing with cousins, and riding our pony. Zabby runs a study program in Paris for a New England prep school, John is a retired teacher, and Robin is a lawyer. Both John and Robin live in Holland near 'The Peni'.

Why the Owner Chose Sturbridge:
In 1926, our grandparents acquired a part interest in 'The Peni' when they purchased the hill just to the west of it. They quickly realized it was an ideal swimming place. At the time, there were no other 'camps' on the lake. They went to great lengths to acquire the remaining shares of this extraordinary spot, and their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren have benefited ever since. It continues to be a favorite place for the family to gather for swimming, boating, and family reunions.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Swimming, boating, fishing, privacy, space, wildlife, and bird life.The long, convoluted shoreline of 'The Peni' provides many swimming spots as well as places to explore. There are lovely walks in every direction including into the Quinebaug Woods, formerly part of the family property, now owned by Trustees of the Reservation and open to the public. There is a wide variety of fine dining in nearby Sturbridge.
