Our cozy, family friendly and completely remodeled lake house enjoys modern conveniences with private lake access and quick access to Boston (only 45 mins!). The vacation getaway is located on Lost Lake in beautiful Groton, MA bordering serene conservation land on 2 sides and facing a small private beach with dock. The location offers a balance of natural beauty with a convenience to amenities allowing you to get away from the fast paced city life but return at your leisure!
Inside: Our home was completely remodeled in 2017 and is essentially a new house with new kitchen appliances, revamped electrical/plumbing system, new flooring throughout and updated bathroom. The house was designed to maximize a smaller footprint with an open concept, cathedral ceiling, smaller bedrooms and easy access to the outdoors. Wall to wall windows provide relaxing lake views and the kitchen faces conservation land with a pretty cove teeming with wildlife.
While smaller, the house encourages family and friend interaction as well as spending time enjoying the outdoors. This is not the place to come if everyone wants to go in a separate room to watch TV or play on an iPad! The home is equipped with high speed WiFi and a 55” flat screen TV to enjoy movies, sports or that favorite TV show. The master bedroom has new French doors opening up to the living room offering lake views (the perfect way to wake up). Play & relax in the lake, then cook in a modern kitchen or grill on the deck.
Outside: There is a nice beach at the water's edge where you can listen to the waves beating against the sand and rocks and watch ducks, geese and swans (last year we had a family frequent the dock). There are two fire pits: one on the private sandy beach and the other closer to the home and woods. Up above at the house, is a new deck overlooking the lake where you can watch boats on weekends in the summer and ice fishing in the winter. It is generally peaceful but we do have respectful neighbors on both sides as you face the lake (one of which is rarely there but for an occasional weekend drop by in the summer and almost never spends the nights). While the natural beauty of the location is undeniable, please understand that this is not a wilderness retreat - there are often boats on the lake and neighbors enjoying the lake - especially on summer weekends.
The house is designed for outdoor living so while it can accommodate 6 guests; it is more comfortably suited to a family of 4-5. It is a two bedroom with a brand new comfortable pull out couch which sleeps two. Welcoming day visitors is fine but we require that parties of ten or more (total) be requested / approved in advance.
Late Checkout Option - we understand weekends are short and many times guests want to stay all day Sunday but not overnight. If our booking schedule permits, we offer a late checkout option for those who would like to extend their checkout time from 11 am to 7 pm on the last day of their stay. The rate is 50% of the full-day rate for that particular day.
While we love our 4-legged family members, unfortunately due to ensuring our home is suitable for all with allergies, we don't allow any pets.
There is no smoking inside the home under any circumstances.
Guests must recognize that the water is a hazard. Guests must assume all responsibility for their personal safety when swimming and boating. State law requires the use of personal flotation devices. We require all guests to sign a Liability Waiver before arriving.
