Renting a house on a lake was a wonderful experience. The house was fully equipped with everything I wanted and not far from Lenox proper. My husband and I bought tickets to various plays in Williamstown, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Jacob's Pillow and Tanglewood. It only had 2 bedrooms, but our grandchildren slept in the 2nd bedroom and our daughter & son-in-law pitched a tent in the grassy backyard when they visited. When it rained they moved into the screened porch on an air mattress. The house was in the woods which gave us privacy, but close to all things we wanted to do. It was smallish, but perfect for us seniors.
