Why Mark chose Sturbridge
We purchased our home after visiting our cousins who live on the lake, for 18 years; we chose the home because it was built in 1928 so it is solid and has charm. It has been well loved and maintained over time; you can sit at the dining room table with your coffee and see the lake on all sides in front of you; the lake is beautiful and calming whether it is gray and foggy or warm sunny and deep blue. It is not unusual to see an eagle fly by with a fish in its talons.

Wonderful hosts, view and location!
Charming lake house. It gave us all the space we needed. The lake stole the show. Loved it!!
Property had a nice charming feel. Our family used the all season porch every day. Had plenty of space for the six of us. We really enjoyed sitting by the lake.
The location and set up was great. A well equipped house with all the basic necessities. The lake was fabulous for swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding. Our family really enjoyed the week there.
Beautiful location on a pristine lake
My family had a very pleasant experience vacationing at this property. The lake and grounds are very clean and inviting. The home is situated on one of the best lots on the lake. The house was large enough to easily accommodate our party and yet still had the rustic charm of a lakeside cottage. Great place for a family get together and plenty of activities available. The property owners were very attentive and communicated well with us before during and after our trip. Thank you to Mark and Bonnie for a wonderful time. I would certainly recommend this property to others for a great lakeside vacation.
We enjoyed a relaxing week at Lake Alum. The house was very comfortable, with room for family meals, games, puzzles and relaxing. The lake was beautiful- amazing sunrises and warm water for swimming. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, swimming to the floating dock and kayaking. Mark and Bonnie were excellent hosts, making sure we had everything we needed.
