Property is great.

  • 5 of 5

The property sits right on a quiet cove on a beautiful lake. The house itself is well equipped and plenty big. It could probably use some updates but it has everything you need and the whole point is to be outside and enjoy the lake access. If you're worried about a lake house not having state of the art appliances, you're doing it all wrong.

The owner was easy and accommodating to deal with and we hope to return next year. Overall, we were very happy with the house.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I booked a weekend getaway to take my father fishing for the weekend. The house was perfect. Overall everything was clean, organized, dated but in good shape. It easily sleeps 10 and would be perfect for kiddos or a larger family getaway. Nice private dock in a quiet cove. The cove itself is great, as it was hidden from the wind and is a nice quiet area away from boats - perfect for some dock fishing or taking a dip in the reservoir. The fishing itself was awesome.. nice and steady landing smallmouth, largemouth, and pickerel. Two local stores nearby for supplies. Nice little hidden gem in Otis.

Nice overall, needs some improvements

  • 3 of 5

Nice property with good amenities, though it could have been cleaner. Unfortunately, all the mattresses are old or substandard. Love the large front porch thought the table could be nicer (it's a picnic table) The large deck is nice as well With another table and some deck chairs. Gas grill was new. Had trouble with it working (it has some safety mode) but the owners were able to assist with resetting it. good size dock was nice for my boat though a little challanging to approach There is a large rock in front that made me concerned. Would have expected the owners to have removed it. Cove is great and I love the lake...have been boating on otis for years There was insufficient flatware for a facility that sleeps ten. we cook a lot and the lighting in the kitchen was challenging. Lost power one night in kitchen and you have to wait for the owners just to reset a breaker. Property is dog friendly which was nice! Single bathroom was a real challenge at times but we managed. Overall the property is nice, just needs some updates and improvements to really stand out

Roomy with an amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

The drive to the cottage was beautiful! The house was spacious and accommodated the 9 of us and 3 dogs very comfortably. Loved having the large deck and also the screened in porch for later in the evening. The private dock was wonderful for lounging and swimming. Definitely recommend the location and plan on going back next year myself!

Our Annual Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoy our stay here annually. From the cottage it is a fairly easy drive to Stockbridge,Tanglewood and Jacob's Pillow for the summer entertainment we enjoy. Evenings are spent star-gazing and watching the moon's reflection on the lake. We love nature walks, cook-outs on the grill, and blueberry picking in a town nearby. Breathing the fresh mountain air, swimming in the pristine lake, and finally finishing that novel in a lawn chair on the grass lets us know we have truly left the Big City behind. This comfortable, well-equipped cottage is an oasis of calm in a hectic life.

Best kept secret :)

  • 5 of 5

This cottage did not disappoint! Our whole family really enjoyed our entire stay. From the great deck, front porch overlooking the water (dreamy views) and amenities like the modern kitchen, we felt like we were at our vacation home away from home!! The kids loved the lake (especially the cove where it's more private). We will definitely be back again!
