Spacious one room cottage on a private 7 acre estate with swimming pond, lily pond, streams, gardens and views. Only the owner shares this peaceful natural retreat, minutes from everything exciting in the Berkshires and Columbia County.
Originally built by artist caretakers to a Manhattan horticulurist, the cottage has it's own driveway and is a spacious, 550 sq. feet with a large bedroom/sitting room, separate full kitchen and a sky-lit bathroom. There is a queen size bed, reading and dining areas, Cable TV, DVD, a CD player, WiFi, air conditioning and heat. It is comfortable, has charm and is well equipped.
From a picture window where a table is placed, you can look over the gardens to the lake, a glorious view all year round.
In summer you can hear the stream trickling from the small front deck. Or step out the back to a private shade garden with cushioned lounges for reading, a propane grill, table and chairs for outdoor dining.
A gazebo cantilevered over the water is for your use alone. Perfect for reading, relaxing, a glass of wine before dinner.
In winter, the cottage becomes a cozy cabin.Bring books, hiking boots, snow shoes, even skis. Catamount is less than a half hour away, Butternut a few minutes more.

that the property was once woods and although beautiful and almost always quiet, neither the cottage not the main house is immune to bad weather, critters, power outages and other such country things. We certainly do our best to prepare for contingencies that are beyond our control.
Also be aware that the property is between cell phone towers so it is rare for a cell phone to work until you reach the main road. There is internet and a phone with answering machine so you can make and receive calls. Many guests have expressed delight at the positive effect on their vacation; and of course, cell phone service is available at most shopping centers along the road.
CHECK IN:2PM . Check out 11AM. Check out times may be flexible. Inquire.
Smoking is not permitted. Sorry no pets.
