Property description

This all season 4 bedroom rental is located at the northeast corner of the lake on U.S. Route 7, just north of Pittsfield in The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Property is 15 Min Drive To Jimney Peak Ski Resort
The lake has a free boat launching area. Try your luck fishing for varieties of Trout, Bass, Chain Pickerel and Northern Pike; Yellow and White Perch, Bullhead and outsized Carp. Pontoosuc currently holds the state record for Tiger Muskellunge, at 18 lbs. 3 oz. Or rent a Jet Ski, canoe, or sail boat to better take advantage of the lake during your stay, April through October. In winter if you like ice fishing, set out your tip-ups and then watch them from the west-facing windows. Or drive onto the ice, as is common when conditions allow. Cross-country ski or snowshoe at your leisure.
Attractions below are listed in the order of their proximity your rental unit.
Walk to “Pitch and putt,” miniature golf and driving range. For a fresh seafood meal or a burger, walk a little farther to Matt Reilly’s Pub and enjoy fried belly clams, a great burger, and all legal beverages, Lanesborough Restaurant and Pizzeria, Donut Man, and Simon’s Market with deli items and package store.
Drive less than five miles: East to The Berkshire Mall (Macy’s, Best Buy, Target) and see the brand new, soon to open Berkshire Carousel; head South to Zucchini’s fine Italian and American dining and banquet facility; or North to The Olde Forge Tavern for a sumptuous burger and a wide variety of beers including those brewed locally.
Only ten minutes south brings you to Cultural Pittsfield’s resurgent Arts and Entertainment district anchored by the Gilded Age, meticulously restored Colonial Theater where you might catch James Taylor who resides nearby in the town of Washington.
Visit any number of attractions for both the visual and performing arts including the Lichtenstein Center, the Barrington Stage Company, the Berkshire Museum, or the Beacon Cinema. From April to October enjoy the free downtown festival 'Third Thursdays,' which features live entertainment, artists, vendors, and activities for all ages.
Twenty minutes to the north, discover historic Williamstown, Williams College and its ultra-modern ’62 Center for the performing arts; the Sterling and Francine Clarke Art Institute; the nationally renowned Williamstown Theater Festival; the elegant Williams Inn with its fine dining, rich history, and weekend jazz. Continue east, a short drive along Rte. 2 to North Adams to find “Mass MoCA,” Museum of Contemporary Art.
Of course, in addition to ski areas, it’s a short ride to Tanglewood or to Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival.
Or just put your feet up and hang out on the front deck or in the comfortable surroundings of your rental unit as you watch the flora and fauna of every season.
This property is located on 180' of waterfront. Weekly and monthly summer rental is available year round Also, everything is provided for your stay. Just bring clothing and toiletries. This Property is particularly well suited to groups or families who want to be together while still maintaining a measure of privacy. We're convinced you'll find this rental offers something for everyone and is a compelling mix of home and away, the quaint and the modern, the old and the new - a place for all seasons. Come ready to relax, to roam, to socialize, and even to work in a setting that is an inspiration. Add a chapter to your memoir, a chorus to that composition, a verse to that poem, or a note to a friend, as you enjoy the serenity of your lakefront rental.
