Passing by Lake Whitehall in Hopkinton last Thursday, I had to stop and take this shot. It was late in the day and was one of our last warm days of the season.  The temperature was in the 60's.  And, I am fondly thinking of that now...  Lake Whitehall State Park consists almost completely of water and very little park.  The lake was once used as a source of local drinking water and is now a little bit of paradise for the small boater and fisherman.  There is a nice little boat ramp on the Route 135 end of the lake and some restrictions that keep this a very quiet spot.  Since boaters can only launch something as small as a canoe this completely cuts out any chance of noise or huge wakes from power boats.   The watercraft speed on the lake is limited to 12 MPH and there are no jet skis a...

UNDER AGREEMENT - CLOSING SOON!!! Someone just took advantage of a great opportunity to own a cute cape in Hopkinton.  A little updating and this home will be just the place to enjoy the quiet area near Hopkinton High School.  The fireplaced living room with hardwood floors, new neutral carpet on stairs and upstairs bedrooms and the fresh paint are just the beginning.  The windows, roof and siding were done within past few years.  What a fantastic location! Walk to town and schools. Did you know that HOPKINTON was rated #19 for best places to live in American by Money Magazine?
