vacation rental description

This charming, comfortable cottage is located on Lion Hill Road in the small lake community of Big Pond.
Access to the water is a three-minute walk across the road. The cottage faces East, but gets sun all
day long because of a three-sided wraparound deck, on which is also located a fantastic large
outdoor shower with hot land cold water and a picnic table over looking a Cezanne-type woods. 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 quiet mid-week. The house sleeps
5 in two bedrooms: one with a dboule bed and the other with a double and a single bed. All have
excellent mattresses. (If necessary, someone can sleep on the sun porch.) Both bedrooms have celing
fans. and electric heaters for chilly eveings. 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, wood-burning Franklin stove, VCR, and cassette/tape
deck. The sun proch as a couch and two chairs as well as a dining table that seats 6 very
comfortably. Most funishings are country antiques with an occasion Oriental rug. Lots of lamps with
decent wattage for reading. A canoe and row boat are available for your pleasure. Oar, paddles, and life preservers plus chairs for
Tanglewood can be found in the shed to the rear of the house. There is ample room to park two cars
behind the house.

cottage rental amenities

Shopping is at the Price Shopper in Lee or Great Barrington (the
latter is better), but locally are the The Otis Egg Store,
Terranova's General Store (which has good meat and great ribs )and The Other Brother
Fish store. In East Otis, Hall's, with wonderful ice cream and an old fashioned soda fountain,and
Katie's, also with good meat and a takeout area for fried chicken, clams, etc.  Papa's, also in East Otis, specializes in organic foods and has a local market on Saturday mornings. This is also the local service station. The local
bar/restaurant is the Knox Trail Inn with music on weekends in East Otis. Two places serve breakfast
and lunch, one in East Otis and one in Otis and one restaurant by the Otis Ski area, the Grouse
House, serves dinner.
Don't expect too much of anything being open in the Berkshires after
10:00 unless you go to Railroad Street in Great Barrington or the
Knox Trail Inn. This is not the land of dance clubs!

activities and attractions in Otis Berkshires MA

Big Pond is very free of people mid-week but, of course, on weekends
families congregate for water skiing, etc.

minutes; It's accessible to other cultural highlights: 30 minutes to
