About the property

Big Pond, Charming,, Comfortable Cottage

This charming, comfortable lake view cottage is located on Lion Hill Road in the small, quiet lake community of Big Pond. The cottage has 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, a huge outdoor shower, a sun porch and a deck on three sides of the cottage.

Access to the water is a three-minute walk across the road to a shared dock. A short walk down the road to the left will take you to the public beach with sand and a roped area for children to swim, but the lake is also shallow near our dock.The cottage faces east, but gets sun all day because of the wraparound deck. The back deck overlooks a Cezanne-type words. Houses are on both sides, the one on the south is set way back from the road and the one on the north is hidden by a privacy fence. The area is very quite mid-week. The house sleeps 5; one bedroom has a double bed and the other, a single and a double. All have excellent mattresses. Both bedrooms have electric heaters for chilly evenings and ceiling fans.

The rest of the cottage consists of a breakfast nook, a large well appointed kitchen (sorry no dishwasher) , a full width living room with two couches, a wood-burning Franklin stove, VCR, DVD, cassette/tape deck and wi fi.. The sun porch has a couch and two chairs as well as a dining table that seats 6 very comfortably. Most furnishings are country antiques with an on occasional Oriental rug. Lots of lamps with decent wattage enhance reading. LaFuma lounges are available for your enjoyment as are a kayak and row boat. Oars, paddles, and life preservers plus chairs for Tanglewood are in the shed to the rear of the house. There is ample room to park two cars behind the house. Sheets and towels are not supplied. Otis has an excellent laundromat.
