What makes this house unique

Proximity to both lake and town make this house very convenient

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this adorable cabin with our children for a week in August. The house was immaculate and very comfortable and cozy. The lake was amazing and we all swam and canoed and fished off the dock most of the day. At night Great Barrington has many great places to eat or to entertain the children. The kids loved to go bowling in town. Barbara was a breeze to work with and wonderful with all her suggestions for places to eat. We are looking foward to returning again.

Relaxing and enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. House is very well stocked with everything you will need. It is very nicely updated and it was extremely clean! Short walk to shared dock access. Fishing in the lake was a success. Neighborhood was good to take our dog on a walk as it is mostly private drives. Nice size backyard and small front deck to sit on. We would recommend this cottage and definitely stay again.

We went to dinner in Great Barrington at Allium. Food was very good and atmosphere was very nice.

GREAT weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a few other girls rented this home for a weekend away with plans to hike Monument Mtn. on Sunday. As we pulled up to the property we were in love. For once, the property pictures are exactly what you will find when walking in to this cottage. The home has a good sized bathroom, an open floor plan for the kitchen and seating area, and a great all season porch. The beds were very comfortable. The home was well stocked with everything you might need (kitchen items, towels, etc.) The space could not have been any cleaner or more cozy. The owners emailed and left thorough notes so no questions had to be asked and we could simply enjoy our stay. Although only 10 minutes out of downtown Great Barrington we felt far enough "off the grid" which is exactly what we wanted. We cannot wait to visit again and would HIGHLY recommend this to others looking to stay in the area!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say anything bad about this house… We needed a place to stay last minute and they contacted us within the hour. The house was fully stocked with everything that we needed and more. It was extremely clean and comfortable. We can't wait to go back next year! P.S the only thing I wish it had more of was Mirrors but we made do!!! :-)

Very cute and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying at this cottage. We had no noise issues and we really loved Lake Buel. This cottage had all the comforts of home and a great kitchen. The fully insulated porch was very nice. I would recommend this to any friend or family member.

Comfy, quiet and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful week-long stay in this charming cottage near Lake Buel. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay (good wi-fi, washer/dryer, a/c). It is a quick walk to the lake and we enjoyed taking the canoe for paddles around the lake. It is also very quiet - few cars driving by. Everything is clean and functional. It's a great place for a couple or small family.

It was a great cabin in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the seclusion of the cabin, and the fact that everything was there for us to use.

My only suggestion would be to add a Keurig for coffee:)
