Numerous nearby state parks, forests, and lakes offer swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, picnicking, and beautiful views. Fall foliage is phenomenal. An idyllic ski getaway, numerous downhill and cross-country ski areas for both novices and experienced skiers are located only minutes away. In Otis Wood Lands there is a serene lake with a safe, sandy swimming beach, as well as an outdoor heated pool. Hike on a trail that begins a short walk from the house through Otis State Forest to beautiful, secluded Upper Spectacle Pond. Enjoy ping-pong and darts in the rec room of the house, or relax in the solitude, reading a book on the deck or the screened-in porch surrounded by the tall trees and the subtle sounds of nature. Minutes away enjoy antiquing, the outlets, concerts at Tanglewood, dance at Jacobs Pillow, plays at the Berkshire Theatre Festival, Shakespeare & Company, and other regional theaters, movies, numerous art museums, including the Norman Rockwell Museum, and many other sites.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We love spending leisure time in the Berkshires. We live and work in the New York Metro Area; the Berkshires provide the perfect change of pace and scenery for us less than a three hour drive from home. For many years we rented cabins and stayed in bed & breakfasts. We spent time as a family and as a couple enjoying the variety of outdoor and cultural activities the Berkshires has to offer. We decided to buy a second home here.

Why the Owner Chose Otis, MA, USA:
We truly fell in love with the house and property on our initial visit. The rustic look, the fully equipped home. and all the community amenities make this the vacation home we had always hoped for.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is a four season property. We swim, kayak, play tennis, hike, snowshoe, ski, bike, and take nature walks; attend dance, theater, film, and concerts; go to museums that are famous throughout the country - Norman Rockwell, MassMOCA, the Clark, and Williams College Museum of Art; visit historic homes; and enjoy dining at restaurants of every ethnicity, style, and ambiance imaginable.
