Overview

About the property

Charming Five Bedroom, Spacious, Beautiful Grounds, Bring the Family

Sarah’s Haven is a Nelson Phipps beautifully handcrafted Cape in the heart of Massachusetts built in 1953 from the lumber milled from the land. All the walls are original pine board walls, handcrafted cabinetry, red oak floors, with a huge central stone fireplace gracing the living room. It has nine rooms, five bedrooms, and can sleep 10-11.

Sarah’s Haven sits on over four acres of pristine privacy overlooking it’s own pond. Daffodils, irises, and lilies abound in the spring, while azaleas, butterfly bushes, orange blossoms, and trumpet vines follow all summer.

Bask in the summer warmth or swing on the rope swing, hike trails, or just enjoy the tranquility and natural beauty surrounding this home. Huge picture windows look out over the pond and the acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. It's the perfect hide-a-way for the whole family.

All this is within ten minutes of downtown Worcester attractions: theaters, colleges, medical facilities, DCU events, and museums.

A beautiful and peaceful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Sarah's Haven. It was a very comfortable and peaceful place to come back to at the end of the day. Wish the weather had cooperated so we could have enjoyed the beautiful property as well. It was a perfect place for a large group - plenty of comfortable beds and lots of space for socializing in the evening. The craftmanship of this house is truly special; obviously a labour of love!

Quintessential New England

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a cabin in the woods to experience autumn while visiting relatives nearby and this fit the bill perfectly. The house is very quaint and made the perfect New England stay. The house was very well equipped and the children loved all the toys and old games there. They were disappointed the air hockey was missing the puck. There were tons of bedrooms but only one full bath so I can only recommend it for a small group. We would probably return every year if there were more outdoor amenities. We loved walking around the property and the rope swing but a playground, hot tub, or small fire pit would have put it way over the top.

Delightful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sarah's Haven was the site of our Girl's Week vacation. It was a delightful retreat for an autumn getaway. Less than 15 minutes from the City of Worcester, there are plenty of options for takeout or eat-in restaurants. We were close enough for day travel to Boston and the Berkshires. We found the home to be cozy, clean and well equipped for our needs. Although we did have an early concern regarding the one full bath, the half-baths and bedrooms were more than acceptable for five women getting ready for days of sight-seeing. The large comfortable living room was perfect for evening discussions and the generous dining room table offered us ample room for our crafting needs. The workmanship of the home is magnificent and a testimony to the love of the surrounding land and the people who lived here. This property is ideal for a family, a couple or a small group of friends.

Homey Haven Ambiance

  • 5 of 5

Sarah's Haven truly was a haven for our family; a home away from home. It was perfect for us as we celebrated our daughter's wedding at Zuka's Hilltop Barn in nearby Spencer. The love of the beauty of wood, made evident by the craftsman-style detail of the home, was an extra delight. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen and the thoughtful anticipation of our needs as travelers. We enjoyed hearing some of the history of the home and the Phipps family story. We would highly recommend Sarah's Haven to other travelers, and hope to return again in the future ourselves!
