About Lindsey and Steven
Very nice to meet you! We are New Englanders born and raised and love the outdoors, history, and spending time with friends and family. We love this lake and the community that thrives here and hope you will enjoy it too!
Why Lindsey and Steven chose New Marlborough
We fell in love with the idea of visitors vacationing here for generations and want to continue the tradition by sharing it with all who seek a lake getaway.
What makes this Cottage unique
When we were looking for property in 2015, we were drawn to this cottage because of it's location. The landscape is wild, it's peaceful and close to the lake. We also love the big open floor plan of the house, but when downtime is needed, you can retreat to the small bedrooms and enclosed porch.

Exhale and enjoy the best of what the Berkshires has to offer...
Tucked away at the end of a private dirt road amongst the woods of Lake Buel, Lindsey and Steve have figured out how to create an environment where one can escape the pace of modern day life and simply BE...the way nature intended us to be...together, as a community/family amongst all the beauty nature has to offer and at a pace we were designed to flourish (put those iPhones away people...you’re not going to need them). My wife and 4 year old daughter stayed for a long weekend arriving excited but a bit tired and departing refreshed and grateful to have had the opportunity to stay here. The hosts were great, going as far as to leave us hand written notes with various instructions and tips on staying at the cottage and the surrounding area. They even went so far as to leave us some delicious chocolate chip cookies. The cottage was plenty spacious, clean and modern (but not too modern where you felt disconnected from the Berkshires vibe). Our daughter loved the fireplace and indoor hammock/swing...her dolls got more use out of it than we did :)
Overall, A+. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you Lindsey and Steve for being so accommodating and for sharing your home with us.
We had a good feeling about this trip even before we left home. The owners provided excellent directions that included photos for every turn. We arrived at the forested location without a glitch.
We opened the front door, looked in, looked at each other, smiled and said WOW!
We saw an open floor plan with an updated, modern and bright decor. The kitchen was large and fully equipped. We cooked several meals and every tool or gadget we needed was there. The 2 bedrooms, located adjacent to the living space, were both nicely decorated and beautifully prepped. We especially liked having access to the lake and the use of a canoe.
We cannot overstate how hospitable the owners are. They promptly responded to our correspondences before the trip. For our arrival, they wrote a lovely welcoming note accompanied by a bouquet of flowers. They even left us delicious home baked bread in the kitchen. Although we had no reason to contact them, we knew they would be there for us in a second if we needed them.
We are looking forward to many more stays at this wonderful rustic cottage!

A remarkable treasure
My partner and I had a restful and special stay at this truly delightful cottage on lake Buel. The open floor plan is perfect in everyway and the hosts are wizards in the art of hospitality. They strive to set everything up for you so there is nothing to do but enjoy.
Although not the easiest place to locate, the hosts sent detailed directions and pictures to help find our way. I recommend reading and viewing all the pictures and plan to arrive in daylight. We lost cell reception so take that into consideration.
Once found the place couldn't have suited us better. The space contains a well stocked kitchen including every appliance under the sun. A bathroom filled with fluffy towels, a beautiful cozy fireplace and access to a lake paradise. There was great wifi available.
We really enjoyed our time and we highly recommend if your looking for a rustic, homey relaxing experience.
Clean and comfortable:)
The property was perfect. The owners went above and beyond by leaving us homemade pumpkin bread and also left some home-grown tomatoes for us. They were very welcoming. We even left the key at our family's home 2 1/2 hours away so we called Lindsay and Steve after 8PM to tell them we were locked out! They very graciously came to the house with a spare set of keys. They weren't upset at all and were sorry we had to worry about not having the keys. Don't hesitate to pick this place for an escape from the "Rat Race". The lake is beautiful and we put that canoe to use.
Great weekend, loved the canoe for the lake
Fantastic place, very peaceful close to nature. Be sure to bring your bathing suite as the boat dock is 2 minutes away and the kids loved going out in the canoe. We din;t bring our fishing rods but were amazed .at all the fish around the dock especially when we fed them some crackers.
Wonderful time and would definitely come back. Many thanks.
This place is so special
This cottage is oozing with charm and personal touches, quiet, spotless, and peaceful while located a very short walk from a beautiful lake. It is so close to everything the Berkshires has to offer, yet feels so private. I had friends staying at a hotel in town and they preferred to hang out at my cottage! It is obvious so much thought and love went into planning this perfect vacation rental. Thank you so much Lindsey and Steven!
