Our large family (my husband and myself, 3 grown daughters, their mates, a few g'kids) had a wonderful reunion in this house. Ample, perfect for togetherness as well as spacious enough for "down" or private time. Very short walk to the dock and lake, where we could fish, lie around, take a kayak or canoe ride, or sit and sun bathe. There's also a family friendly beach one mile (easy walk for all) down the road -- safe for little kids, clean, roped off. We barbequed, ate in, and spent one day in nearby -- and lots of fun -- Great Barrington. This family was easy and straight forward to deal with. We're happy to be returning this summer.
