Litchfield County is the foothills to the Berkshires and our cottage is accessible to everything. Our time is usually spent relaxing on Bantam Lake - nothing like having your own beach to enjoy. Bring your boat and use our dock, or borrow our canoe to explore the lake. Fishing, swimming and playing in the sand all fill our weekends at the lake. Within a few miles of our cottage, however, you can shop or dine or drink or antique to your heart's content. The White Memorial Conservation Area has a trailhead across from our road and our weekends usually include a hike or two and the rolling local hills make for some great bike rides. In the winter, we walk and skate and cross country ski on the lake (when it's frozen!) and the kids love to watch the ice fisherman. Mohawk Mountain is 20 minutes away and is a great family learn-to-ski hill.
