Bungay Lake is truly a hidden gem. It is not well known, even to the folks who live in these towns. At 110 acres it is fully recreational yet has very little boat traffic because there is no public access. The water has always remained clean and the Association seems to do testing nearly every year. The dues to join are posted on their website. The residents take part in a themed 4th of July Boat Parade every year. Over the last 10 years, many homes around this lake have been remodeled or expanded. The location and proximity to highways and shopping certainly justifies all the full-time residences. In the early 80's, the Government built a fail-safe dam at the South end of the lake bordering the Fish Hatchery. This give the residents better control over winter draw-downs and possible flood protection. The Associations coordinates Hydro-raking every other year (a method of mechanical weed removal) for individual homeowners who sign up. The location is just 25 minutes to TF Green Airport in Providence and about 50 minutes from Logan Airport in Boston.
