Description of the Upton vacation home rental
"North Pond" has been in my family for 70+ years, It has been updated a number of times and is now a year round home now which we rent it out in the winter but enjoy it durning the summer. However, there are few weeks that others may enjoy it as well. We went swimming 6 20 06 and the water was a comfortable 76 degrees. A tenant has written a book about his stay called "North Pond Dawn".

We have kept it in a cottage feeling. This encourages me to relax even more. The house is about 40 �� back from the lake and the decks are out 10 �� above the water. It is on point reaching out into the lake, where you can see almost both ends of the 3 miles long lake. I have enjoyed this peaceful lake ever since I can remember. There is a dock with water depth of about 9 �� at the end, great for swimming, fishing and boating and there is a small sandy beach on the property, great for young children learning to swim.

Being at the end of a dead end road, we have a great feeling of privacy with 2.7 acres with 300 �� of frontage on North Pond. Yet there are a number of year round homes within walking distance. The lake's surface is about 234 acres which is an average of 9 feet deep but goes to depths of 20 feet. The water warms up quickly and is usually around 75 to 80 degrees in the summer. We wenting swimming the weekend of 6 18 06, and the water was 75 degrees. We see an abundance of birds: including many ducks and a Great Blue Heron (see picture).

This getaway offers you all the amenities for a Maine vacation yet just 40 minutes from Boston. Its is close too many fine restaurants. I hope you will also have many special memories. Landlord is Realtor.

What People say about North Pond (Lake Maspencok)
Peppercorn Hill, in the east, commands a fine view of North Pond, from which flows Mill River, separating Upton from Milford. Pratt's Hill and pond, and a smaller pond, beautify the scenery on the north of the central village.
Upton...hardly anybody knows about this small central mass town. It has many historic buildings and sites. One third of the town is conservation land and state forest. There are some hidden historic Indian sites and some beehive cave chambers. On a clear fall day, you can see the tip of the Boston sky line from Peppercorn Hill.
