Otis House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
This three bedroom cabin (built in 1993) is the ONLY property in Otis that borders BOTH Benton Pond and Big Pond. At Benton Pond, we offer 400 feet of water frontage along with a canoe for your enjoyment. Our gazebo sits on a cliff overlooking the pond and is a great place to enjoy a picnic. Our water frontage at Big Pond includes a dock where you can park your motorboat for fishing and waterskiing. Walking trails criss-cross the 43 acre property for your hiking enjoyment.
In addition to the three bedrooms, the house consists of a large screened back porch that during the summer season can serve as an extra bedroom or dining area. There is a covered front porch, a side deck, and a balcony off the upstairs master bedroom. These outdoor spaces nearly double the amount of usable space.
After spending your day walking, boating, or just enjoying a good book on the porch, you will be ready to enjoy some of the many cultural activites that Berkshire County offers. In less than 30 minutes, you can listen to the Boston Symphony from your lawn seat at Tanglewood. Or, if theatre is more to your liking, try the Berkshire Theatre Festival in Stockbridge or Shakespeare and Company in Lenox each less than 30 minutes away. Stockbridge is also the home of the Norman Rockwell Museum. Finally, if modern dance is more your thing, it is just a 20 minute drive to Becket and the Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival. In addition, there are some fantastic restaurants and the Mahaiwe Theatre in Great Barrington.
The house is available in the summer as well as the fall when you can view some of the most beautiful leaf scenery in the world. Come join us!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your lovely cabin in the woods for the last week. We were looking for a quiet spot for a family get-away and we found it! We spent in numerous hours reading, playing games, laughing, telling stories, etc. on your back porch. The weather was perfect all week (thanks for taking care of that for us!), the trails in the woods constantly beckoned for dog walks, the cabin was well-appointed with everything we needed, the serenity was all encompassing. All in all — the perfect vacation. Thanks so much for letting us rent your place!!
