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.

It was our second time at this beautiful home and once again a great weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here four years ago when our son began college nearby and were happy to return to see his graduation. The house has beautiful views of the property, a well stocked kitchen for our family gathering and comfortable bedrooms. Thank you Rebecca for sharing this beautiful home!

Perfect getaway with rustic New England charm!

  • 5 of 5

This house came stocked with most anything you'd need. Some rentals don't have condiments or coffee. The house and surrounding area is beautiful. The owner responded quickly to any inquiries. We had a wonderful time at Sarah's Haven.

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!
