Our home

Charming New England Colonial, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths (master suite w/ full bath) PLUS private outdoor shower. Screened porch, playroom in basement, near everything but private & beautiful. Our home is located in a small town halfway between Boston, Massachusetts, and Providence, Rhode Island (25 minutes from both Boston & Providence). We are 55 minutes from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Our town features a beautiful private lake with a swimming beach and boating ramp. The lake is a ten-minute walk from the house or a one-minute drive. It is private, only for town use. There is a dock for boating.

There are local tennis courts within easy walking distance of the house. There are two protected wilderness areas right in town – one a State Park and the other a protected wildlife sanctuary. Both have extensive hiking trails and are very beautiful.

The house itself is set in a very private wooded lot, within easy walking distance to the center of town, which has several good restaurants and shops. Our town has one cinema with several screens. There is a local train to both Boston and Providence, which is also within easy walking distance of the house. Any guest here will have easy access to Boston, Providence, or Cape Cod!

The house itself has approximately 3, 000 square feet and sleeps 7 easily – up to 11 if you don’t mind using the two pull-out sofas. Our home has four bedrooms: one king-size master bedroom with full master bath with soaking tub, separate shower.

Who we are

  1. I am a college professor in a local college and my husband teaches High School. We have no pets, but we do have three well-behaved children (ages 11, 8, and 5), are non-smokers, and enjoy traveling! We are primarily interested in a simulatenous swap, but if someone would rather come to New England in August we could possibly do a non-simultaneous exchange. We take very good care of our beautiful antique colonial and would take equally wonderful care of your home. We have done three wonderful exchanges and can provide references. Thanks for looking!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

This is a small, semi-rural town. It is very woodsy and beautiful, but Boston, Cape Cod, and Providence are all easily accessible. The home is a five-minute walk from the center of town, which is a few square blocks and includes shops, several good restaurants (one truly excellent, New York-quality), a coffee house, banks, post office, ice cream shop. From the house you can also walk to the town's private lake, open only to town residents, which has a beautiful swimming beach, boat ramp, yacht club, tennis courts, and food stand.

Within ten minutes are many, many malls, movie theaters, and shops. Within 25 minutes is Boston -- by train or by car. In Boston there are museums, restaurants, theater -- everything! If you get tired of enjoying the town's lake or seeing museums and theaters in Boston, take a trip to Cape Cod -- only 50 minutes away. Or, drive 25 minutes south to Providence, Rhode Island, to see the FireWater exhibitions, dine in their restaurants, or explore their shopping.
