This cute cottage features a fully-equipped RECENTLY RENOVATED KITCHEN!! New stainless-steel appliances, a five-burner gas stove, cheerful red-checked flooring, a beautiful farm-house sink. It's truly a pleasure to cook in.
Four-season sun porch was also recently refurbished with new cork flooring, furniture and paint job. Cozy and relaxing!
The cottage has many other amenities: Located on four acres off a dirt road, the house offers visitors restful seclusion, but with plenty of culture and great winter skiing nearby! Minutes to Great Barrington, Lenox, the Lee Outlets, Tanglewood and Jacob's Pillow. The surrounding area features access to state and local parks and beautiful cross-country ski trails. It's just a mile to the village of Otis and the Otis Ridge Ski area.
In addition to a large DVD collection, the house includes a Roku 'streaming entertainment device' and complimentary subscription to Netflix. Pay-per-view movies are also available for a nominal fee.
Three bedrooms (two with double beds and one with bunk beds) sleeps six. Additional comforts include washer/dryer; new dishwasher; gas grill; deck with Adirondack chairs and cafe table for two; glassed-in porch; a wood stove with firewood; and a caretaker nearby. Wireless Internet available. Beautiful, well-tended gardens. Quiet and secluded, a great place to get away!
We really enjoyed our stay. We all miss the place and wish we were still there.
Everything about the house was great. We have rented over a dozen houses in the past 10 years with varying degrees of amenities, locations, proximity to towns, shops, nature, etc. Your house ticked all the boxes. Easy to get to from Boston and New York. Near a big town, nature, general stores. Fully furnished and equipped - one of the group said that the house had everything we needed, down to the lemon juicer. Another was looking for needle and thread to darn his sock and was happy not only to find both items, but also remarked how organized the drawer is! Of all the homes we have rented, yours is definitely in the top 3.
Thank you again for a great visit. Best wishes for a happy new year!
My family and I stayed in this wonderful house for almost two months last summer and it was the perfect spot for us. We have two small children and there was plenty of space, inside and out, for them to explore. The house was equipped with all of the amenities we needed for an extended stay - especially the kitchen. Everything was clean and obviously well cared for and much loved by the owners, who were incredibly helpful in working with us to set up our arrangements for the summer. There is great swimming and hiking close by and Otis is centrally located to several destination spots in the area. We look forward to returning to this little gem in the Berkshires again in the future.
This place is absolutely lovely!!! We had an incredible stay here. The place is situated in an area filled with many fun things to do, and close to every conceivable Berkshire activity. We came to stay with an elderly gentleman and an overly active black labrador, and both were extremely happy with the accommodations!!! The dog was so excited to be there, and the elderly man was very happy that there was a bathroom available on every level. The place is meticulously kept- it has everything you could ever want for a summer/winter vacation. Emilie is amazing, and even though we didn't get a chance to meet in person, she did everything in her power, even from afar, to make sure we were taken care of. The cottage is decorated in such a tasteful, and individual, quirky way, everybody in our party commented on it. It is so inviting, and welcoming, and makes you feel like you are a guest of the family. New, retro, yet at the same time, strangely familiar...i can't recommend this place enough, except to say that i hope nobody seriously searches out this hidden gem, so that we can book it any time we want!
My family and I ( 6 of us altogether) spent 4 nights in this beautiful location. We swam and trekked nearby, shopped at the outlets and enjoyed a concert at Tanglewood despite the rain.The house is roomy with two baths and bedrooms separate for the kids, and a lovely deck. Very clean and appointed well for eating in. Very quaint and nestled in a beautiful wooded area. We had a great time.
The Berkshires has a wealth of summer and winter activities, from skiing, hiking, biking and lake swimming, to music at Tanglewood, dance at Jacob's Pillow, shopping at the Lee Outlets, and dining in Great Barrington or Stockbridge. The Clark Art Museum and MASS MoCA are an easy day's outing. Otis Ridge Ski Area is less than a mile away; Butternut is only twelve miles.
