Nice average sized spring-fed lake with a real mix of cottages and year-round homes. All boating activites are accepted (no public ramp). Very quiet area making it a popular fishing spot. Town Beach on Taft Aveneu. Many smaller lots required to have tight-tanks for septic system. A new Lake Nipmuc Association has been formed. Meetings are held monthly on the first Thursday evening of the month at 7 p.m. at the Mendon Senior Center.
