"A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature."
- Henry David Thoreau
Activities and Attractions
The area is friendly and safe for walking, biking, waterskiing, swimming, boating, and fishing. Lake Lashaway is 1½ miles long and ½ mile wide, and was rated one of the top bass fishing lakes in Central Massachusetts by the Boston Herald.
Within walking distance to town are two restaurants, post office, a country store, two beauty salons and public library. It's only a ¼ mile walk to the public beach with lifeguard during season.
Many activities are only a few short driving miles from the cottage, including a golf course, bowling alley, Warren Farm and Sugarhouse and Brookfield Apple Orchard, or just take a leisurely drive through our picturesque surrounding towns.
In less than ½ hour you could be in Old Sturbridge Village or Brimfield Antique Markets. It's only ½ hour to Worcester, 1½ hours to Boston, 1½ hours to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos and 3½ hours to New York City. This cottage is perfectly suited for either a fun-filled active vacation or a relaxing get away.
