Lanesborough house description

A pleasant 2-to-3-hour drive up the Taconic Parkway, the NY Thruway or across the MASS Pike/Route 90 transports you to our luxury-inn-type experience within easy reach of just about EVERYTHING! (James Taylor @ Tanglewood July 3-4: Clark Art's new visitor Center, renovated galleries, and expanded campus opens July 4.)Hike- bike- swim or golf! Visit museums; attend theater and performing arts events. Browse antique & outlet shops... dine at restaurants galore...all are nearby.
Cozy Sweet Suite at Peaceful Waters Lakeview is a perfect writer's retreat, musician's refuge, painter's inspiration, or vacation central for all your cultural and recreational activities with essential guest amenities surpassing any hotel suite. Enjoy Internet with your lake view inside or out in sunroom.

Upgrades! Sunroom with comfy loveseat/gateleg table off bedroom. Bigger gas grill, expanded garden seating. Teakwood bench, mat & shower massage. Knotty pine ceilings, 42-inch HD TV, unique rustic decorating accents mix country ambience with elegance. Widened driveway & opened up landscaping keep Sweet Suite modern and convenient!

Savor lake & mountain views from cozy sunroom or landscaped garden courtyard surrounded by latticework privacy fence intertwined with flowering vines. Soak up sunshine with morning coffee, tea or afternoon wine on a cushioned glider, chaise lounge or on bistro chairs tucked in shady garden spot.
Use full-sized gas grill to sizzle up some supper -- add freshly picked herbs from our garden. Sit by the lake or have a refreshing swim! Pontoosuc Lake is about 100 yards away -- beach chairs, blanket, umbrella, towels, CD player/radio provided.

Need rest? Our comfortable newly remodeled snug suite, located in a separate wing of our house, is in a quaint, quiet flower-infused neighborhood on a dead-end street. Park beside your private front door and deck complete with two Adirondack chairs bathed in morning sun.

If on a working vacation WiFi can be used throughout the Suite -- sitting room to patio.

Love nature? Watch humming birds, cardinals, woodpeckers, goldfinches and other feathered friends at our feeders. Our bunny we fondly call Tippy II is a daily visitor. You may DEFINITELY see a pair of Bald Eagles. They've become regular visitors to the lake below. An Osprey diving for fish, a Cooper's hawk on the hunt -- complete the 'National Geographic'-like picture. Relax with a book from our extensive, eclectic library, play board games or pop a DVD in one of 2 players – one is portable.

Pontoosuc Lake is a water paradise. Swim, picnic, power or sailboat ride (A boat rental is down the road.). This rental has dock! Fall brings spectacular foliage reflecting off water, powerboats disappear. The lake becomes quiet. Graceful kayaks and canoes appear serene. Later, eerie shadows and sparkling snow bestow a magical landscape.

Additional recreational activities: golf, bike on Ashuwillticook Rail Trail north to Adams, MA; hike up to top of Massachusetts’ highest peak, Mt. Greylock. (Road to peak/trail heads is about 10 minutes away.) Marvel at all-marble Natural Bridge and ode to railroads at Heritage State Park in North Adams, hike the Appalachian Trail, explore one of area's many hidden waterfalls – guides in our library.

Lanesboro is conveniently located in the center of Berkshire County; Berkshire Mall with cinema 5 minutes away. Rejuvenated Pittsfield 7 minutes away has the Colonial Theatre, Barrington Stage, Berkshire Museum, Beacon Cinema, Hancock Shaker Village and trendy restaurants. Locals love Matt Reilly's Pub & Restaurant’s lake-facing deck for fresh-cooked lobster or burgers, the beer club at Old Forge Tavern AND watching for the moose! Baker's Miniature Golf and Driving Range is less than a mile away.

Other nearby Berkshire cultural hot spots, many open all year include; Clark Art Museum, Williams College Museum of Art (free admission), Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), Norman Rockwell Museum, Williamstown Theatre Festival, Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theatre Festival, Berkshire Botanical Gardens, Chesterwood, Kripalu yoga center and more. Drop the kids off at school -- or summer camp – as Williams College, Mass. College of Liberal Arts, Berkshire Community, Bard of Simon's Rock, Buxton are easy commutes.
