About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Get away from it all at our beautiful Berkshire lakefront wooded retreat. Swim, canoe, kayak, sunbathe, play tennis during the day, then enjoy the evening a short drive away at Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, or perhaps go to the movies in Great Barrington. Have dinner at the Red Lion Inn, or one of the fabulous restaurants nearby, or have it at home as you watch the sun set over the lake.

This private, modernized, 5 bedroom* cottage consists of two floors. The upper floor has a full kitchen (includes a dishwasher), a large great room with a dining and living area, featuring a beamed cathedral ceiling, skylights, a dramatic fireplace, and an entertainment area with a wide screen TV. The dining room table seats eight and overlooks the lake. A screened porch overlooking the lake extends off of the dining area. An open porch overlooking the lake extends off the living room area. The master bedroom, with a study area and a king bed (can be separated into two twin beds), and one full bath are on this floor. Downstairs, three bedrooms (one with a queen bed, one with two twin beds and one with one twin bed) have lake views. The fourth bedroom, with two twin beds, also has a couch which can double as a queen bed. A full bathroom and a utility room with a washer and dryer are on this floor. The middle bedroom has large sliding glass doors which open to a large patio area with a garden, lawn chairs, a charcoal BBQ Grill and two picnic tables.

A flight of half-steps (constructed for a gentleman who had just had a knee replacement) leads to the dock and the lake. Two canoes and two kayaks come with this rental. Lake Garfield is managed for weed control (the water is lowered each winter to kill off the weeds) so the water is one of the the clearest in Massachusetts.

A magical lakeside retreat with all the comforts of home and easily accessible to the world-renowned art, culture, dining, and entertainment of the Berkshire hills. Look forward to a memorable vacation.

* Although this cottage has 5 bedrooms, the maximum full-time occupancy is 6, and the rental fee is set with this in mind; extra sleeping capacity is meant for transient visitors only.

In addition to exploring Monterey (check out the General Store for great homemade pies!), we invite you to explore Lenox, Stockbridge and Great Barrington, all just a short drive away. Enjoy everything in these quintessential New England towns, from eclectic restaurants to boutique shops and musical entertainment. A must visit is Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and world reknown for its summer music festivals. If you're the artistic type, check out The Norman Rockwell Museum, Shakespeare and Company and Jacob's Pillow. If you are a history buff and enjoy exploring old mansions, visit Naumkeag, Chesterwood, and Edith Wharton's home The Mount. Want to play a round of golf or enjoy a day at the spa? Check out the famous country clubs of the Berkshires, including Cranwell and Blantyre. The Berkshires is one of our favorite places and we hope you get a chance to discover why!
