June/September Rental: The house comes with its own dock 75 feet from the back deck. There is a boat lift if you have a boat 18feet or less. Also available are a canoe and a kayak that can be put into the water. Otis Reservoir is a highly desirable lake because it is drained down 25+ feet every winter thus killing all seaweed. The water is beautiful and clean for all swimming and boating activities -- no green algea or seaweed. The reservoir is 1/2 mile wide and 4+ miles long. House has a wet room for storing all tubes, paddles, life jackets. Also, it is on the eastern shore of the lake which means it gets the afternoon sun -- more likely to be swimmable on marginal days. Also, good fishing right off the dock or down the lake.

Why Marshal Root chose Otis
Rustic beauty of the Berkshires with beautiful lake views, in a quiet bucolic town with access to skiing, dance, music, theater, outlets. Easy access from both the East (Boston) and the South (NY/CT). High quality home able to host guests from near and far to 'get away from it all' but still have modern comforts, full kitchen, satellite TV and wifi internet.
