This is the Essex River and Hog Island, directly across the street from where the Adam Sandler movie “Grown Ups” was being filmed last week. I went early in the morning and set up the tripod at 4:30 AM to take this dawn picture and to get a feeling for how accessible the set of Woodman’s was going to be. I didn’t feel like getting tossed from the set like the day before. So as I saw folks coming and going and I took this picture, I popped my head in to see the crew of people working like mad to put the inside of Woodman’s back together after filming all last week inside the building.
Yesterday morning I went back to Woodman’s to get some pictures when everyone was asleep or there was a skeleton crew but to my surprise there was a crew of about 20 people working feverishly to put the place back together to reopen for the weekend after filming all last week.

My buddy Brian (the rabbit) and I walked onto the set to try to get you folks some up close pics of the stars but we were rebuffed. Actually a more accurate description of what happened was we went into Dunkin Donuts next to Woodman’s and then took a sharp left onto the set and just kept walking until the security guy came and asked us to leave. Drat!
The things I do for you my readers!
Woodman’s building is completely covered in black tarps as they are shooting a night scene inside. What struck me funny is how they indiscriminately nailed strapping wood over the black tarp all over the old woodman’s building. There are going to either be a ton of nail holes left behind when that strapping is pulled off or they are doing to have to redo the siding.
Here is a communication from Lakefront Productions, the company which is working with “Happy Madison” Adam Sandlers’ production company on the movie “Grown Ups”. This went out to all the neighbors around the lake. You can click it and select “all sizes” for the full size version to read how they will be handling boat traffic and the use of fireworks at different times during the summer.
If you click on the picture and select all sizes you can see the set up for cameras filming off the roof and the deck in greater detail.
This swim platform is new to the lake right in front of the Lake House where the scenes are being shot. I’m not sure if it will be part of the movie or just a place for the actors/crew to goof off, but look for it when the movie comes out.
Here’s another round of pics from the set location for the Adam Sandler movie Grown Ups starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Salma Hayek, and Maya Rudolph
Make sure to make a mental note of these pictures so when the movie comes out you can say, “Hey, I remember those pictures on GMG!”

This may look like it’s been on Chebacco Lake forever but in fact it was built to look old and rustic for the Adam Sandler film currently being shot in Essex Ma at Chebacco Lake. More photos from the set to come.
When the movie comes out next summer look for these locations- you saw them here first!
