From Route 6, the "Mid-Cape Highway" Lakefield Farms is a convenient 2 miles south of Exit 4. Most of the neighborhood is bordered by Great Hill Road and Race Lane; some homes are located between Newtown Road (which leads south about 3 miles to Rt.28 in Cotuit) and Race Lane(which runs southeast about 5 miles to Rt.28 in Centerville). It is adjacent to the Rolling Ridge development and across from the Ridge Club Golf Course. Two other golf courses are within two miles of us: Holly Ridge and the Barnstable Fairgrounds Golf Course. Children here attend the Oak Ridge School in grades K-8, then Sandwich High School. We have a private, sandy beach on Lawrence Pond and are only a few miles from salt water beaches on Cape Cod Bay such as Sandy Neck Beach and East Sandwich Beach. Lakefield Farms is a neat, comfortable, quiet community consisting of both families and retired couples.

Lakefield Farms is served by Town water, although some owners have wells. Underground utilities, which include Verizon DSL, Comcast digital cable TV and high-speed Internet access, add to the attractive quality of our neighborhood. The Stop & Shop Supermarket, CVS Pharmacy and other shops are located about 3 miles away, heading toward Forestdale and downtown Sandwich. The Heritage Movie Theaters are a short distance past the Stop & Shop supermarket, as are restaurants, hardware stores and other businesses.

We have certain "voluntary restrictions" which are actually only voluntary in the sense that, once you voluntarily elect to purchase property here, you automatically agree to them. These covenants are available on this website's home page by clicking on Trust Documents and are also on file at the Barnstable County Registry of Deeds. Our Trustees are volunteers, elected for terms of three years at our Annual Meeting held in mid-June at the Clubhouse.

Our clubhouse, located at 21 Great Hill Road, has a private beach on Lawrence Pond, with a tennis court, picnic area and boat ramp. The private clubhouse is well-maintained and available to owners (only) to rent for parties and functions for which they are present to host. See the photo tour from our home page.It is not rented to those living outside of our neighborhood. All those living here pay an annual assessment. These "dues" pay for staffing and maintenance of the common areas. No one else may "join" our Clubhouse or use our beach and tennis facilities(unless a guest of and with a property owner). These facilities exist only to benefit homeowners in Lakefield Farms.

Lakefield Farms Trust is serious about collecting our annual assessments. Homeowners who are in arrears may have liens placed on their property, liens which must be certified as being paid prior to sales or remortgaging. These liens "follow the land"; see our Trust Documents for details. Unpaid assessments are charged interest and may also be charged collection fees. All Realtors® and lawyers are advised to contact us for important details on any property they represent as early as possible to obtain a Certificate of No Assessment from our Office. Our Trust's Office Manager keeps office hours part-time at the Clubhouse. Please call ahead for an appointment to view the Clubhouse. At other times, you may leave messages on the Clubhouse office machine at 508-428-8568.
