Waterfront Summer Cottage, Big Pond, East Otis, MA

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 6 Sleeps

This charming waterfront cottage is located on the pristine 333 acre lake known as Big Pond, one of the Berkshires most hidden treasures. Enjoy and relax on the deck as you watch the sunrise every morning or just to enjoy the beauty of the lake at your fingertips.

This cottage sleeps 6 comfortably with 2 bedrooms, each with a double bed and a loft with two single beds. There is a large spacious living room with a wood stove to enjoy on a cool night if you are not having a fire on the beach in the fire pit. It also has a large spacious kitchen and dining area.

This cottage is completely furnished.

If you are not relaxing on the deck you can sit on our privately owned beach area and relax by the waters edge. There are beach chairs to use, a dock to sit on and a raft to swim to.

This cottage sits in a little cove and is ideal for young children because the water is shallow near the dock and they can walk out about 50 feet before it starts getting deep.

The lake is clean and ideal for swimming, fishing, kayaking, boating, windsurfing and so much more.

The house and location were just beyond perfect for our family vacation. homeowners were incredible and attentive to our needs. breathtaking views from the back deck to the inside of the house, this beautiful house is super comfortable and immaculate! walk right out your back door to the crystal clear lake, which also made for great swimming, and the use of the canoe was a great addition to our wonderful vacation!! we look forward to returning next year!

Our stay was fabulous. Rented two cottages for our first annual family vacation. The owners are very pleasant and willing to meet your needs. Kitchens were well stocked with appliances and paraphernalia for easy meal prep. We will definitely be returning every summer.
