Overview

About the property

The Loft is a unique large open floor plan; awesome modernews cabin feel

The Loft is a unique private large 690 s.f. upscale cabin like structure. All of our previous guests have commented that the Loft is much bigger than it appears in pictures, that it exceeded their expectations and is much more charming than any of the pictures depict it. There is a bedroom area with a king bed, a kitchenette area equipped with small appliances, a dining area, a great living room area complete with a gas stove and a futon which converts to a bed, a single bed situated privately in a raised alcove accessed by a ship's ladder and a good sized bathroom with a generous size shower.The Loft has its own private entrance and closets. There is access to a beautiful private beach and lawn with a dock. The Loft has an outdoor grill, complete with a side burner that sits on the large private back deck in the woods, internet, air conditioning and both the back deck and front deck are both accessed by glass french doors which lets in all the light and makes one feel as if one is part of the outside. Enjoy outdoor living on your own expansive deck in the woods or on the lawn at the beach. Swim, kayak, sail or just take in the scenery and watch for the eagles and great blue herons at owners' private lakefront on Goose Pond, a large very clean and beautiful 270 acre lake of which the majority is in preservation. A short walk away (10 minutes) the Appalachian Trail provides great hiking opportunities, you can even walk around the top end of the upper lake or into the infamous Tyringham Valley! The area is spectacular. The Loft is near all of the cultural offerings of the Berkshires: Stockbridge Theatre Festival, Shakespear and Co., Norman Rockwell Museum, Jacob's Pillow, Naumkeg, Kripalu, just to mention a few. Trustees of Reservation hikes are close by too. Fantastic boutique shopping and great cafes are pleasant destinations in area towns. The Premium Outlet Village offers great outlet shopping and is just a 10 minute drive away. There are many great restaurants in the area.

We are on a beautiful lake, in the country but just a short drive to anything that you might wish to do here in the 4 season area of the beautiful Berkshires. The summer offers all of the cultural amenities that the Berkshires if famous for and the lake is warm for swimming. The early summer and fall are also perfect times to visit the Loft and the Berkshires in general. The area is quieter and the scenery is spectacular. Fall foliage on the lake is something not to be misted and the free standing gas stove makes the evenings in the Loft cozy and contributes to a warm and inviting atmosphere. Come and enjoy! Unfortunately, we are unable to allow 4 legged family members at the loft.

About Gail Puntin

We have lived on Goose Pond all of our adult lives and have raised our children here. My husband actually spent summers here while growing up and has never considered living anywhere else.

What makes this chalet unique

Goose Pond is an incredible lake. We have always been in love with it. Goose Pond consists of 2 lakes connected by a channel. Upper Goose Pond is spectacular and is surrounded by National Park Land while much of Lower Goose Pond is in preservation too. It is a large 'mountain' lake that is very beautiful,clean, quiet and sought after by many especially those who kayak and canoe. Bird watchers will love it here. The bald eagle, great blue heron, osprey, loon and many others are seen almost daily. The lake provides great fishing and is stocked with salmon and trout and has native fish including bass as well. In the fall, the mountains around the lake provide spectacular views as does the hiking available throughout the area.

Notes:
Near Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow and all Berkshire cultural amenities; 10 minutes to AT for hiking; other hiking nearby; swimming, kayaking and fishing right from Loft; shopping at Premiere Outlets (10 min). Fantastic boutique shopping in all area towns. Great cafes and dining too. Spring is a wonderful time to visit Goose Pond area. The mist from the lake in the morning is gorgeous and it is still a great time to be outdoors and enjoy the beautiful lake and woods surrounding it. Great time of the year for boutique shopping too! The gas stove makes it cozy and the ambience is wonderful

The Loft at Goose Pond great getaway for a single traveler

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place to stay on a lake and the Loft at Goose Pond came available for my dates. The loft was clean and well equipped for my needs as a single traveler. Gail and Tim are wonderful hosts that can provide many suggestions for things to do and places to eat. The lake is very clean. I brought my own SUP and was able to get onto the lake every day. Gail and Tim gave me the space I wanted to enjoy the surrounding area as well as the lake. I highly recommend the Loft as it not only was great for the solo traveler but is also for couples.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Gail and Tim’s Loft. As other reviewers have noted, the Loft feels bigger than the pictures would indicate. We’re a family of five (kids 12, 12 and 9) and had plenty of room to sleep and hang out. Loft is clean and well equipped with everything you need, including beach towels and freshly stocked Berkshire reading materials and menus. Gail and Tim are great hosts and they really go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The lake itself is beautiful.. great for swimming and kayaking. Highly recommended!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Loft at Goose Pond in July 2018. The owners were very gracious and the property was lovely. The beachfront offered access to the lake, as well as a great view. The location was close to various tourist spots; we enjoyed a performance at Tanglewood. The loft itself was cozy and functional. Overall, highly recommended!

lovely lake lounging

  • 5 of 5

The Loft on Goose Pond was perfect for a girls weekend away to celebrate mom's birthday. It is very clean and comfortable, cozy and fun. We easily found everything we wanted for brunching, grilling, and lounging by the beautiful lake. The loft is removed enough from the hosts' home to feel space, yet close enough to have a friendly check in and chat, and get fun restaurant recommendations. Definitely would like to visit again! Thank you!

Comfortable lakeside loft get-away

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at this scenic property. We were on an autumn “leaf-changing” trip and we got lots of fall colors here. Great area for walks and exploring and close to great towns to visit: Lee, Stockbridge, Lennox. And some great houses/museums to tour. Hosts are very generous and we had everything we needed for a great stay. The lake is just steps away and there is a great cat named Bob.
