About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home right on the lake

This adorable and comfortable lakefront house sits on a private country lane in the heart of the southern Berkshires. It’s quiet, but close to everything, and comfortable year round for swimming and boating or for skiing. Enjoy lunch on the screened porch overlooking the lake. Build a fire in the wood-burning fireplace or outside in the fire pit. Take the canoe out on the lake or take a dip off the dock. One bedroom and a bathroom are on the main floor, while two bedrooms with lake views and a large bath are on the second floor. The house is fully furnished and the kitchen fully equipped.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We bought our lake house as a retreat for us and our family and friends, many of whom live in nearby Boston, New York and Hartford. It's a great gathering spot and we have already made lasting memories in this special spot.

Why the Owner Chose Egremont, MA, USA:
We've always loved vacationing in the Berkshires, with its cultural attractions, natural beauty and varied recreational activities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best parts: the lake just steps from the door, lunch on the screened in porch, beautiful views, the family of ducklings gliding by early in the morning, snowy walks on bright winter mornings.
