Canoeing, kayaking, swimming, campfires and ice skating make this home ideal for a summer or winter family vacation. Downhill skiing in the winter and fine dining and world class cultural events in the summer are just a few of the local attractions. Originally built around the turn of the century, we modernized the cottage to accommodate our growing family and endless guests. Two family rooms (one with a fireplace, one with a tv), a large deck, a 12' dining table, four bedrooms, including a bunk room plus an extra sleep loft turn this cozy cottage into an accommodation for two families with a gang of kids. The ambience is part Ralph Lauren and part 'On Golden Pond'; a place where everyone feels at home. It's where life-long memories have been made. We invite you to make a few of your own. PS. If its just for the two of you, all the better ;)

Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: I am an artist and a mother of three grown children.
Having grown up in Miami, I gravitate to property on the water as I have a view of the Hudson River from my NY home and views of Queechy Lake from all but one room of this 'cottage'.
Why the Owner Chose Canaan: I went to camp in the Berkshires, so I have been fond of the area since I was a child.
Just two hours and change from Manhattan, this property offered our growing family the benefits of a wonderful lake house as well as the proximity to year-round cultural events and sporting activities. Whether boating, swimming, biking, campfires or just hanging out on the deck watching the light change on the water, there's nothing better than life on peaceful Queechy Lake. It's like camp! Only nicer...
The Unique Benefits at this House: The view from our home is all natural -- no houses across the lake, only tree blanketed hills. That makes this house truly unique, especially given its excellent Berkshire location.
