ADIRONDACK-STYLE COTTAGE W/DOCK AND BEAUTIFUL LAKE & MOUNTAIN VIEWS-PEACEFUL!

Salisbury Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom sleeps 4

Roaring Bear cabin is our family's 1920's cabin situated on a pine forested hillside overlooking East Twin Lake- Lake Washining 'laughing waters'. It has a relaxed, charming, attractive cabin decor - quilts and antiques. Adjacent to a large 1500 acre nature preserve, the cottage is private, but not remote (about 1200 ft distant above the lake). There is a private dock and swim float and your rental includes a canoe.

Power boat rentals, breakfast and lunch are available at O'Hara's Landing just 1/4 mile from the dock. There are two large (unscreened) porches to enjoy the beautiful sunsets, lake and mountain views.

New Kitchen: We have recently installed a complete new kitchen at the cabin with stainless gas stove top, cabinets, Corian counters and double stainless sink. Our water pressure has also been enhanced to provide comfortable amenities, but preserve it's woodsy cabin appeal. Additional enhancements include the installation of a dishwasher, wine cooler and small in kitchen refrigerator.

The cabin was built by our grandfather, John Hunter Stearns, in 1922. We are always in awe when we drive up the .7 mile access road and realize that it was built at a time when constructing such a road up the side of a hill was extremely diffucult and yet it it has served all of his descendants so well for many generations as has the cabin.

The cabin sits nestled under towering pines, with amazing, unique panoramic mountain and lake views- bathed in peace and quiet.

While the cabin maintains it's charming rustic exterior, the interior has been upgraded to provide modern conveniences and comfort without compromising or changing it's authentic appeal.

We have been stewards of the property for over 40 years. Our children have learned to fish and use power boats here. We were married 25 years ago on 'Isola Bella' (beautiful Island) in the center of the lake at a most lovely event where we transported all of our guests to the island by classic powerboats.

It is a natural getaway where you are afforded privacy without compromising expansive views of the entire southern Berkshire mountain range.

CUTEST LITTLE CABIN

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 10, 2014
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
My husband and I rented this cottage for a long weekend July 2013. This place was terrific...we spent a long weekend here and enjoyed every minute of it! It was super secluded and quiet, exactly what we were looking for coming from the crowded and noisy city. It is definitely a little rustic but that is exactly what makes it soo charming and cute. The view of the lake was spectacular, and each evening we would watch the sun set over the lake. We swam and fished on the lake during the day, then walked back up to the house for dinner. There is a little farm stand very close by where you can purchase fresh produce (its the cutest little stand!) and the kitchen at the cabin is fully equipped with everything you could ever need to cook.

The owners Susan & John seem like lovely people, and they were incredibly helpful and easy to work with.

This is such a lovely place with great access to everything...beautiful surroundings...a fun place to stay! We would definitely come back again and are looking forward to the next time make it up there!

Empty Nesters Retreat

After coming up to Twin Lakes for 26 years with children and friends, we now find ourselves able to come here as a couple to sit quietly on the beautiful front porch watching the sun set. The pictures that John and Susan supplied on the web sight show the authentic beauty of the interior design. The sense of history that surrounds the cabin in the Litchfield Hills is breathtaking. It is an amazing experience to watch the deer walk across the front, listen to the birds chirping and the sense of quiet isolation that surrounds the cabin.

Everyone associated with the cabin was accomodating and welcoming from the Property Manager, Melody who met us at O'Hara's in the pouring rain; to Robin, the incredibly resourceful general contractor who showed up immediately when we needed him as well as the caretakers of the beautiful Isola Bella Island across the Lake. The owners were also very attentive and responsive and very welcoming.

Although the long driveway leading up to the cabin is certainly daunting initially, with it's hairpin turns and narrowness of the road, it is manageable although we never drove up and down at night. The cabin was ideal for our needs as a couple - the kitchen facilities were luxurious for a cabin in the woods and the shower was great and the double bed was very comfortable!

We had a wonderful and restful 2 weeks here and not only would we recommend it to another couple, we look forward to the opportunity to return again next year.

An Oasis in the Woods.

I spent a week here while visiting friends and family in the area, and had a wonderful time. The cabin is amazing and beautifully appointed, and is remote enough to be very private but not so much that I, a single woman, would feel too isolated. I spent evenings on the porch enjoying the lovely views of the lake and took full advantage of the private dock during the day. The walk to and from the lake was nice and I had no problem navigating the driveway with my truck. The owners John and Susan were extremely accommodating as well as helpful in answering any questions I had. Melody the property manager was informative and friendly and did a great job getting the place ready for my arrival. My security deposit was returned promptly and without issue. If you're looking for a secluded spot to get away from it all with a charming historic atmosphere plus great dining and recreation in the area, I absolutely recommend Roaring Bear Cabin. I hope to visit again very soon.

Fantastic long weekend on the lake

We visited with another couple for a long wedding and had a great visit. The cabin is just beautiful. We loved it right away. It has a really special quality, a sense of history and family in the structure and the decor. The view is truly breath-taking. The owners were friendly, responsive and informative. The drive up is probably not for a smart car which is what we almost rented by accident, luckily the car rental place had changed our car for a small suv. Our friends made it up fine in a regular sedan. Slow and easy as the owner explained to us and any one can do it :) Just an amazing property and we had such a lovely, memorable stay.

Interesting Cabin

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 5, 2010
  • Stayed: Jun 2010
We stayed in this interesting and private cabin while hiking on the Appalachian Trail. We hiked during the day and used the cabin as a base at night. The cabin itself is delightful with a great view of the lake and a nice porch where we ate dinner in the evening. The decor reflects the history of the cabin and it's place in the lives of its owners. If you need amenities like AC and a dishwasher look elsewhere; but if you want a great getaway place in the woods where you can unwind and relax, look no further.
