"We stayed in this special house for a long weekend in June while we attended a wedding in Monterey. The place is very beautiful, with large windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen is really charming, and well equipped. There is a dock that leads right out from the house to the lake. We felt like we were in a magical hideaway. The main bedroom is big and bright; the two little bedrooms are meant for kids, but we had an adult sleep in each bed, and it was comfortable. There is no internet, but our at&t phones worked just fine, and we went to the nearby general store when we needed to use our computers. We were nice and warm at night. The shower worked well. We recommend this place fully!"

"When we arrived for a week on Lake Garfield in Monterey, MA, we were welcomed to a spotlessly clean, well stocked home with beautiful fresh greenery in vases! The views of the lake and sunset were spectacular! A bald eagle stopped by daily to perch in a tree while scanning the lake for food. What a wonderful sight! The yard and patio were beautiful. The dock was well supplied with water "toys" and room for our 16' Bass Tracker. When our niece came to visit and forgot a life jacket for her 4 year old, there was one in the utility room!!!! We have rented several vacation homes in the past but this was by far the most pleasant. We plan on returning next year for another relaxing week on the water. Thank you!"

"We were very pleased with the charm of this lovely house right on Lake Garfield. The new blonde pine panelling was not only bright and clean, but it permeated the house with the lovely aroma of pine. The living room/kitchen area boasted windows on 3 sides giving glorious views of the lake. The house is clean and decorated in a cozy fashion, and the large deck was a joy early in the morning for that first cup of tea and throughout the day in either shade or sun. There were many bird feeders hanging on the porch and trees and we saw a great many birds. Lake Garfield is very beautiful and my family used the 2 kayaks and the canoe to explore it. This part of the lake is in a 5-mile an hour, no wake zone and was quiet and beautiful even when the lake was busier with boats. There is a beach directly across the lake from the house for swimming. The owner is very pleasant and he called after we had settled in to make sure that we had everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay at this house and would definitely stay there again."

"What an amazing week we had on lake Garfield! The house was as described. The dock and lake were just spectacular. Having canoes, kayaks and paddle boards all available made it all the better.
We have kids, and the house was stocked with lots of toys they could play with, movies to watch on a rainy day, and generally everything we needed.
Like a previous reviewer, an appliance broke for our stay (the washing machine), and the owners handled it as well as possibly getting the machine replaced quickly.
The area is also truly spectacular. Small farms, fresh vegetables and the great Monterey General Store. Hope we can make it back soon!"
