About the Property
Brand New 4200 SF 4 Bedroom 4 Private Baths Lake Front Views With Boat Dock!
The lake has a free boat launching area. Try your luck fishing for varieties of Trout, Bass, Chain Pickerel and Northern Pike; Yellow and White Perch, Bullhead and outsized Carp. Pontoosuc currently holds the state record for Tiger Muskellunge, at 18 lbs. 3 oz. Or rent a Jet Ski, canoe, or sail boat to better take advantage of the lake during your stay, April through October. In winter if you like ice fishing, set out your tip-ups and then watch them from the west-facing windows. Or drive onto the ice, as is common when conditions allow. Cross-country ski or snowshoe at your leisure.
Attractions below are listed in the order of their proximity your rental unit.
Walk to “Pitch and putt,” miniature golf and driving range. For a fresh seafood meal or a burger, walk a little farther to Matt Reilly’s Pub and enjoy fried belly clams, a great burger, and all legal beverages, Lanesborough Restaurant and Pizzeria, Donut Man, and Simon’s Market with deli items and package store.
Only ten minutes south brings you to Cultural Pittsfield’s resurgent Arts and Entertainment district anchored by the Gilded Age, meticulously restored Colonial Theater where you might catch James Taylor who resides nearby in the town of Washington.
Visit any number of attractions for both the visual and performing arts including the Lichtenstein Center, the Barrington Stage Company, the Berkshire Museum, or the Beacon Cinema. From April to October enjoy the free downtown festival 'Third Thursdays,' which features live entertainment, artists, vendors, and activities for all ages.
Twenty minutes to the north, discover historic Williamstown, Williams College and its ultra-modern ’62 Center for the performing arts; the Sterling and Francine Clarke Art Institute; the nationally renowned Williamstown Theater Festival; the elegant Williams Inn with its fine dining, rich history, and weekend jazz. Continue east, a short drive along Rte. 2 to North Adams to find “Mass MoCA,” Museum of Contemporary Art.
Of course, in addition to ski areas, it’s a short ride to Tanglewood or to Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival.
Or just put your feet up and hang out on the front deck or in the comfortable surroundings of your rental unit as you watch the flora and fauna of every season.
