The LR (w/ fpl), DR and kitchen are in an open layout and the cathedral ceiling with exposed beams provide a spacious yet intimate feeling the moment you enter. With ceiling fans and skylights in every room and a cozy window seat in the inviting glass-enclosed sun porch, the beauty and tranquility of nature can be experienced whether inside or out. The wrap around deck offers a perfect space for enjoying peace and serenity giving little reason to leave. And there is more -- this clean and simple home has exclusive tennis courts as well as beach and lake access to one of the most exquisite and sought-after lakes in the Berkshires. Imagine swimming, fishing, and kayaking on this beautiful pristine lake which is just minutes away. The enchanting sandy beach is also known for countless opportunities to view breath-taking sunsets or to feel completely absorbed in a book on a hot summer day. Quite simply, it is magical here. A perfect retreat.

Additional features include wifi, tv/dvd, washer/dryer, board games, and access to all the amenities of this private lake community.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: We live full time in Montclair, NJ and our Berkshires cottage has been a magical getaway. It is a super fun retreat any time of year but particularly during the summer months -- when there is everything to do or nothing to do -- and either way works out just perfectly!

                          Why the Owner Chose Lee:
                          We had been visiting the Berkshires for 20 years and always knew we wanted a home here. This was the very first house we looked at and immediately fell in love with it. Had everything we wanted - high ceilings, sky lights, exposed wood beams, open and cozy layout, wood floors. property is private and secluded yet part of a friendly community and minutes from town... it immediately just felt like home. And now we can't stop smiling whenever we are here.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          One of the best parts is sitting on the window seat of the sun porch and looking out into exquisite natural beauty. We also love snuggling up with a good book on this window seat -- or taking an afternoon nap. It is just the perfect space to simply just 'be.'
