Property description

Parker Cottages of Lake Boon is offering a seasonal, monthly or weekly rental of this vintage, three-bedroom, fully-equipped and exceptionally maintained cottage. It is nestled among six seasonal cottages on 3.5 acres in an opening of tall pines, oaks, maples and fragrant black birch.
Cottage #5 has three bright, airy bedrooms and can sleep up to six. Bedroom #1 includes a queen bed. Bedroom #2 has two twin beds. Bedroom #3 has one double bed.
There's a well-stocked kitchen, one bathroom with a shower, and a very comfortable living area with a center fireplace. Best of all is the breezy, screened-in front and back porches.
Parker Cottages is a family gathering place and is suitable for all ages. There is a very large sandbox and swing set nearby, and cottages are located well off the main road, allowing for easy and safe bike riding for the kids along the winding, dirt driveway. Abundant water activities are within 100 feet of your doorstep. Swimming, canoeing, private docks/boat tie downs and walking and biking trails are offered. There is a public boat ramp for motor boats nearby. You'll enjoy the peacefulness punctuated by happy shouts from the water's edge. When we're lucky to have a rain shower at night, you'll fall asleep to comfortable sound of raindrops on the roof.
If you time your stay well, you can join us for Alda's Pie & Ice Cream Social in mid-August or the July 4th or Labor Day Weekend picnics. A late August weekend around the lake is host to the Lake Boon Water Carnival: including Lighting of the Lake on Friday night with a music boat touring all docks; water races and field games on Saturday; and a boat parade on Sunday. It is free to all!
The convenient location of Parker Cottages of Lake Boon allows for a complete get-away vacation, or a simple shift of home base; allowing you to go off to work in the morning and arrive home to a vacation every night, leaving you the weekend as a bonus!
Parker Cottages of Lake Boon is just 45 Minutes west of Boston; 15 minutes from I 495 in Bolton and 15 minutes from I 290 in Hudson/Marlboro.
Grocery stores, restaurants, shopping centers, apple orchards, seasonal farm stands and the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge are close by. Four golf courses are within a 5 mile range.
Lake Boon is situated along the banks of the meandering Assabet River, which in itself, offers wonderful kayaking and canoeing opportunities.

Enjoy the friendly solitude of this lakeside get-away, a million memories are guaranteed.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1920

About: The Parker family has owned and operated Parker Cottages of Lake Boon the 1920's. The land under which Lake Boon sets, was once Parker Farm. The open, low area was acquired by factory owners in Maynard, MA and dammed up for water power in the mills. When water power was no longer needed, the lake became a recreational attraction. Seasonal cottages were built as needed. Over those many years, we have made-life long friends with our many renters. It especially makes our day when someone who may have spent their childhood summers here at the lake meanders in to see "their" cottage and sit with us on the porch to relive good memories.
