We dont have a meet and greet as we live primarily in Boston . A key is left in a lock box that is attached to the basement door to the right of the main entrance . We personally inspect and make sure the home is clean and ready for guests when you arrive . Clean sheets duvet and pillows so no need to get skeeved out lol. The key will be in a lock box and you will have our phone number for any questions . This is our personal home that we go to very often it just seems a shame to have this slice of heaven and have it sit idle when we are in Boston for work. We wanted to let others get the same relaxation that we feel when we come here through out the year.

The is not often rented for a month but if requested it is available for one month rentals at 40% off the daily rate. This reduction for month long rentals reflects the added ease in not preparing the house for guest on a weekly basis. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE . THERE IS NO GARBAGE PICK UP . GARBAGE REMOVAL is the responsibility of the renter for long term rental . Also note there is no cleaning fee and while we do not expect beds to me made and floors and bathrooms scrubbed we do appreciate that long term rentals take care of bedding and towels while on your holiday as we do not have a endless supply. The house has no Telephone. My cell phone is reliant on linking with wifi from the internet . There is no cable , Television is a 30 inch tube tv and accesses streaming through the rocu player, for Amazon prime and hulu. We do not have a stereo . Music is played through your device ( smart phone or tablet ) and bluetooth connection with wireless speaker. Various sundries will be left for convenience but ample storage is available for groceries. The green bureau and the large armoire is all yours along with plenty of Kitchen cabinet space.

I like the quiet of the lake , Im a artist and when we have the chance to get out there to paint , its heaven. We live in Boston and get out to the house for long weekend once a month . The house is secluded, even though its just off of route 9 and close to everything I need. I can not spend as much time as I would like there and would love have people love the home as much as I do when im not there. I like to keep the house , for guests as I would like it for myself if I were to go some place . All bedding , duvets and blankets are washed each guest so no need to get skeeved out :)
