This beautiful waterfront cabin near Worcester, Massachusetts, is perfect for a family getaway, as it sleeps up to 10 guests. There are two master bedrooms, both of which include a king-size bed, a flat-screen television mounted on the wall, a walk-in closet, and access to the outdoor deck. One of the master bedrooms also includes a tree-shaped ladder in the closet that leads to a loft area above the room. The other bedrooms have a queen-size bed each. The cabin has four bathrooms, one of which has a jetted hot tub, and the rest multi-head showers. There is also an outdoor shower on the stone deck outside the house, concealed by trees and a stone wall covered in vines for maximum privacy.

The spacious cabin itself is fully furnished and charmingly decorated with unique handmade furniture. With one of the owners being a prolific zoologist, most of the decor is nature or animal themed, from the moose statue in the garden to the wall art of wooden fish lining the staircase. A few of the bedrooms are even dedicated to specific animals, such as the zebra room or the elephant room. The living room includes a 60-inch flat screen television, a cozy fireplace, a spectacular wall of windows with uninterrupted views of the stunning lake, a dining area with a spacious table that can comfortably seat 12, and a 230-gallon aquarium with fish from the lake.

The kitchen is fully equipped and includes anything a guest may need during their stay, including a coffeemaker, a microwave, a dishwasher, a toaster, and kitchenware, as well as a kitchen island that can seat up to eight. The basement is a spacious recreation room that includes a billiards table, table tennis, work-out equipment, a darts area, and a theater area complete with a 60-inch flat screen 3D television and surround-sound. Outside the cabin, guests will find a whimsically landscaped estate featuring stone terraces with lounge chairs, beautiful gardens with fruit trees, an expansive mahogany deck overlooking the lake's waters, and a boat landing.
