Why The Owner chose Berkshires

We love this house and it shows throughout:

From the great room with vaulted ceiling and slate tiled fireplace, to the granite counter tops in kitchen and powder room, to the bright and spotless sunroom (with windows on 3 walls and skylight windows above!), to the screened-in eat in porch, the open deck off the screen porch, to the private decks off 2 of the 4 bedrooms, to the custom built 7 ft kitchen table, to the speaker system for the family room, outside deck, patio, or master bed and bath...all planned and built for relaxation and rejuvenation of the spirit.

The master bedroom and bath (with walk in shower with seat) is perfect for those who prefer 1 level living.

We built this home with love and it shows. If you appreciate fine details in woodworking, respect quality craftsmanship, and like to see nature and lake life outside your bedroom window, our lakeside home may be the spot for you!

Does privacy matter to you? On over 2 1/2 acres with 160' of lake frontage, our own sandy beach bottom, the hammock hanging by the water, two private docks and use of our canoe and kayaks, this spot is a haven.

Minutes from Great Barrington, Stockbridge, Tanglewood.

Come and enjoy!

What makes this house unique

Our lake is spring-fed. The fishing is fine! We have the great pleasure of witnessing a family of bald eagles who reside in the pines lakeside this year. Amazing to share space with such creatures!

You choose between deep relaxation and endless activity. Spring, summer or fall, choose from wine-tasting, spa dates and antiquing to hiking, biking, canoeing and exploring.

In winter, there is ice skating on the lake and skiing only 2.8 miles away at Butternut!

Year round the culture, arts, entertainment and restaurants of the Berkshires delight.

A wonderful family week by the beautiful Lake Buel

  • 5 of 5

As a British Family of 4 travelling in the USA, our stay at the Lakehouse was voted the highlight by parents and teenage kids alike! The lakeside position is so beautiful and every consideration to make a fabulous stay has been thought of in the hosts' wonderful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Sally, for your kind words. You and your family are exactly the reason we share our lakehome: a beautiful family sharing special times, creating memories together. The photo of the bald eagle you took while out on the lake will be part of our decor. What a shot! Thank you for your perfect care of our home. You were the most gracious guests. Hopefully you come back to Lake Buel again! Cheers! Dina

Fun lakehouse for a family weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here for a couple families celebrating fourth of July. There were 8 of us in total - 4 adults and 4 children - and the house was more than enough space, beautifully furnished, and in a great location about 75 yards off the lake. Dina was a gracious hostess and made sure the house was immaculate before we arrived. We swam from the dock and small beach next to the property (although the lake is fairly weedy), canoed and kayaked, roasted marshmallows in the firepit, grilled, and did a daytrip to Tanglewood for a family concert. Highly recommended for a relaxed family weekend. Thanks for hosting us.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kermit, for your thoughtful review. Since your visit, we have increased the size of the sand beach and added a stone patio under a tree-shaded area. All of this we did with visiting families in mind! Thank you for your care of our lakehome. We are glad to share our Berkshire haven with lovely families like yours. Dina

Thank you for a wonderful week at this beautiful lake house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly located- peacefully overlooking the lake and yet 10 minutes to Great Barrington. It is spacious, immaculate, lovely, and comfortable-(the pictures don't do it justice). The house is equipped with everything you might need- from the cookware, to the hammock, to the tennis rackets, to the beach towels- truly everything. We loved spending time on the tranquil lake canoeing and kayaking.

The owners were warm and helpful. It almost felt like we were visiting friends.

Thank you- we can't wait to come back!
