Property description

The cottage is located in the Berkshires on a quiet winding road. Majority of cottages are owner occupied. Therefore you get the privacy & relaxation without the crowds. All the Berkshire attractions are within a scenic drive. Endless activities for the entire family. Something for everyone. The lake is high in minerals which leaves your hair & skin feeling silky smooth. The lake does not show up on tourist maps, so you have private enjoyment.I love waking up in the morning, with my cup of coffee & going around lake in the morning dew. Beaver, Otters, Birds, and Fish greet you along your way. Then take a sunset cruise before BBQ on the deck & gathering around the fire pit.The cottage has electric heat & wood burning fireplace so it can be enjoyed year round. The cottage is fully equipped with all modern conveniences. I can assure you, your entire family will create some wonderful memories here. You will be back again & again. It's convenient, private, a guaranteed Berkshire experience. Jacobs Pillow up the mountain, only 8 minute ride.

Note: Owner holds N.J. State Real Estate License.
