Overview

Lakeville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

-- 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, + Den

Please note: My summer plans are in flux, so I cannot yet accept any rentals from May 1 forward. Thank you for your patience.

Adorable, renovated 2-level cottage (it's much larger than it appears from the picture) with views of Lakeville Lake (Wonoscopomac) and a lovely pond. The pet-friendly 1+ acre property abuts the Salisbury / Lakeville 'Town Grove,' which offers boating, lifeguard-protected swimming, playgrounds, paddle tennis court, etc. 2 wood-burning fireplaces. The living room opens onto a dining room, and French doors take you to the screened porch, where you can sit on rocking chairs and watch the sunset over the lake. Each of the 2 large bedrooms has a Q-sized bed, and there is a Q-sized sofa bed in the living room. Downstairs offers a huge den with a full-sized futon, bathroom (with shower) and a separate office area, with a view of the lake and a microwave, coffee maker, and fridge.

Very pet friendly —we have two fenced runs (one small, by the kitchen; one big). A nifty 'pulley' device clips to your dog's collar so he or she can be outside with you on the main outdoor area, and the dog can be off leash in the large run around our fruit trees (pears, apples, cherries, peaches, and plums in the summer.

The washer dryer is conveniently located in the main floor mud room. We have both oil heat and propane, so there's plenty of hot water and a gas stove (and washer/ gas dryer).

Wireless broadband Internet access serves the entire house, and VoiP phone service (U.S. calls only please). Digital Comcast cable includes a premium package that includes high definition HBO, and YES, NESN, and SNY for Yankees /Mets / Red Sox fans.

The Lakeville / Salisbury / Sharon / Canaan / Millerton area is about two hours from NYC, with easy train access (Metro North - Wassaic). Airport access is Bradley CT (about an hour), NYC (about 2-1/2 hrs) or Boston (about 3 hours).

Please note: our property abuts the Salisbury Town Grove, but it is not lakefront property. The bottom of the property is forest. Our path that usually allows visitors to walk to the Grove was damaged during the Sandy hurricane, and is closed until next spring for repairs. However, it is a very short walk (or drive) to get to the Grove. Also please note: dogs are not permitted in the Grove area. If any questions, please email owner.

Notes:
Free U.S. phone calls. Wireless cable broadband (BYO devices.) Ask owner about available office and media equipment (I do not want to detail on a public site). Pets very welcome (except puppies). Enclosed small run by kitchen and a large run, plus a nifty runner gizmo so your dog can be outside with you in backyard, large fenced-in run. Large crate available. Main floor is suitable for those with non-severe mobility limitations - however, access to downstairs and backyard would be challenging. Grab bars in the main bathroom tub and downstairs toilet. 2 steps at front door into main floor. (Not recommended in winter for mobility-challenged bec of ice). While the house is perfect for families with 'tween-agers' and teens, it is absolutely not appropriate for young children under age 7 because it is just too close to busy Rt. 44 and idiot drivers ignore speed limits. Parking only for two cars. No smoking on property (Sorry, but I'm allergic)
