When you stay here, you’ll be less than a two-hour drive from Boston, making it a perfect weekend getaway in this rural and quiet lake community.

There’s something super charming about an A-frame in the woods. Red countertops and exposed whitewashed brick in the kitchen somehow stay on theme with the changing autumn colors.
