Awesome Lakefront in Otis, Ma.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned this vacation around an already planned long weekend in Lake George, so Berkshire County was a perfect spot. is very helpful.

Since we live in NY it was easy to plan this kind of trip.

I researched many rental properties as my requirements were lakefront with a fireplace. I had mapped out 8-10 Berkshire rentals and my husband and I took a day trip to see these properties.

Trudy's home was the first we saw and we could have stopped right there.

All of the others were very nice but this home was amazing.

A neighbor showed us around the first visit and the second time we came to see the house we were in the area for a holiday weekend so we visited again and we met Trudy. She was so sweet and helpful. I really thought I was organized until I met Trudy and spent a week in her home.

When we arrived the house was in perfect condition, just spotless.

The house is beautiful, warm, comfortable and has great views of the Otis Reservoir. From the master bedroom you can see the lake from the bed.

Everything you needed to spend a week and really enjoy your time was in her home.

She had games and books and plenty of area info.

Since it was late fall we did not get to canoe but one of the days was very warm and a neighbor offered us his canoe to use which was so nice.

We had our families with us for just the weekend and they were blown away by the house. We were very glad we made the choice we did and we were so lucky to be able to have shared it with family.

When we departed on Friday we left the house in tip top shape as we would love to have this opportunity again. Our security deposit was returned very promptly

after the house was checked.

Cheers and Thank you Trudy for designing such a great country home and making it available to share with others.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

The Berkshires offer an amazing array of cultural and recreation activities. Try Tanglewood for the Boston Symphony, Jacobs Pillow for dance Berkshire Theatre, Shakespear Theatre and much more. Recreation starts right at your front door with swimming, boating and sailing. Hiking around the lake will get you in shape or drive over to Bash Bish falls for spectacular waterfall and park. Take the mountian road up Mt. Graylock for a panoramic view of three states and while you're there have a picnic and climb rocks at Hooper Campground. Jimmy Peak ski resort has summer activities as well as winter.
