About Bob Watkins

We are a family of 5 that loves everything about the water - swimming, skiing, playing, fishing, kayaking, or just simple watching it. We could no longer resist the temptation to have a more permanent 'base' to enjoy it.

Bob Watkins purchased this house in 2012

Why Bob Watkins chose Pittsfield

Our family has spent the last 15 years enjoying Onota lake. We love it so much we decided to purchase a home on it. We plan on building many memories here and invite you and your family to do the same.

What makes this house unique

From the moment we walked into the large sun room on the second floor we knew this was the house. With it's 180 degree view of the lake and Berkshire Mountains there is no place better to be, unless of course you want to enjoy the huge covered deck right beneath it.

jiminy peak weekend

  • 4 of 5

I would rent this home again. Right on the lake, quiet community. It was very clean and well organized. It was comfortable for two families. Only 15-20 minutes to jiminy. 10 minutes to Pittsfield. Owner was helpful and responsive. The family room was too cold to be used but we didn't really need that space anyhow.

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week of skiing/boarding @ Jiminy Peak. The location was convenient, and beautiful. The house was very well kept. The kitchen had everything we needed, washer/dryer/dishwasher all worked great. My kids loved the fooseball table & the assortment of games the house was stocked with.

We'd definitely check this home first for our next visit to the Berkshires.

beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Great location on a small peninsula on a large lake. The views from the back porch are stunning! Very quiet and private, with two bedrooms on the main floor and a private bedroom/bath/family room below. It was perfect for our small family gathering.

Great views and accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at this waterfront home. The listing description was most accurate and the house lived up to the photos. The view from the front room were breathtaking. The kitchen was well appointed and all the rooms were well furnished.

We would certainly recommend this place as it was very clean and well maintained.

The owner went out of his way to ensure that our stay was most pleasant.

This was an ideal place for our five day outtings in the Birkshires. There is plenty to see and enjoy! It would be even better during the summer as the lake beckons you to get in and enjoy a miriade of water activities.

Fall Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We booked this lake house as a surprise for a family member. The pictures and the description on the VRBO website were spot on. We wanted a place where our family member could wake up to a beautiful view and a place large enough to entertain and this place was PERFECT. The kitchen was well equipped and all the furnishings very very nice. Our entire family LOVED this place. We had one cool night and the fireplace was GREAT and the Fall leaves were brilliant. Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay to enjoy the Berkshires. We WOULD rent again!
