The estate is also close to Newport RI (mansions and chateaus of the gilded age of Carnegie, Vanderbuilt and high society as well as sailing competitions), Watch Hill RI (most elegant town on the Atlantic ocean) , and 2 hours to Cape Cod (national seashore with bike trails, pristine beaches in quaint towns of Falmouth, Hyannis and Provincetown).

The often visited Wachusett Mountain Ski area with Mount Monadnock and Quabbin Reservoir (where you can experience an abundance of outdoor activities) a is also 1 hour away.

This area offers much activity and major attractions such as Old Sturbridge Village ( 100 ACRES), where you can see life as it used to be, and the famous Brimfield Antiques Show of hundreds of acres of antiques from dealers nationwide (in May, July, Sept).

Other nearby activities include horse back riding, antiquing, museums, shopping, biking, hiking, farms, fruit orchard pickings, boating, fishing, golfing, snowshoeing, and skiing, perfect for visiting any time of the year. Fall foliage is spectacular!

Location is at the intersection of Interstates 84 and 90 (Massachusetts Turnpike).

This is the PERFECT place to rejuvenate yourself and take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday city life. Enjoy your getaway any time of the year!
