We wanted a quiet lakeside getaway where we could relax, fish, use as a base from which to explore the Bershires and that's exactly what we got! Easy access, equipped as described (we used the canoe every day) and in a quiet end of the small lake, we were able to fish off the dock, just hang out and watch the ducks, heron, and chipmunks. We loved that there were gates on the stairways so our dog was able to be easily contained and the screened porch was great! All communications were excellent and the house was in good shape with typically dated furnishings in the living areas but comfy beds and all amenities. My 87 year old mother visited one day and she was able to easily access everything. Stores are a few minutes drive away and there are lots of things to do if one gets tired of relaxing! Although wifi was readily available and usable, my partner didn't even open his laptop the entire time we were there! How great is that? I would definitely recommend.
