About Rick Synnott
I own a Travel Agency for 30 years and love to travel. I really have been fortunate to see the world but I believe the most beautiful spot is this cottage which I live four doors away from-it is hard to describe the new lease on life you obtain after a week of being on the water and going to sleep after the most beautiful sunsets over the Berkshire Mountains. I am also a licensed realtor with the State of CT to sell and list properties
Rick Synnott purchased this House in 2001
Why Rick Synnott chose Winchester
It is in the best location of the lake with beautiful sunsets on your very private dock. Views from the great room are spectacular overlooking the lake. There is a vacant lot next door to you to add to the privacy. You are 240 feet off the road which is great for safety and serenity.
What makes this House unique
Stationary dock with Brazilian Hardwood. Dock does not bob up and down from occasional boat waves- safe and great for that book you planned on finishing ages ago. Open kitchen and great room overlooking the lake. Extremely private for a lake house. Private deck overlooking dock with gas grill.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Relaxing week on the lake
Had a wonderful week, great weather & the lake was a welcome relief on hot days. Dock and waterfront area very well maintained and spacious. We enjoyed the great views from the cozy cottage as well, look forward to returning to Highland Lake.
Best Vacation in the cleanest property - great views and awesome sunsets.
The cleanest property that I ever rented. What a relief to walk in and see it spotless with such detail to every part of this property. Great location- very private with beautiful view of the lake and gorgeous sunsets. The stationary dock was great to lounge around and read without it going up and down with every wave. Can't wait to go back.
We had a lot of fun here and appreciated Rick’s willingness to be available if necessary. The views were great and the stone wall areas by the water beautiful.
Great location on a beautiful lake
Although the weather did not cooperate the week we stayed, we were all able to enjoy ourselves. The location is gorgeous and the lake is so clean.
We had a great time at the lake house!
House is cozy and the the location on the lake is amazing! Spent most of our time enjoying all of the activities outside!
Thank you for taking your valuable time to write a review that will help others decide if this is the best property for their vacation. We live four doors away for 28 years now and love the location on the lake-gorgeous sunsets right on your private stationary dock. Our cove offers a beautiful view of the lake and Berkshire Mountains and is not a busy part of the lake. Thank you again for writing a review.
A True Find You Just Have to Experience!!
What an amazing week we spent at this spotless cottage. It was a pure delight! Everything, and I mean everything was exactly as Rick described. The decor and cleanliness made it a welcoming place to reside and honestly we hated to leave. The beds were so comfortable that it was easy to sleep in and relax. Yet when we felt like being active there was plenty to do. The lake itself is incredible. The view was spectacular and I can't even begin to describe the sunsets. The cottage had plenty of space to entertain both inside and out. Plenty of room for company to stay when friends and family dropped in. This cottage is so well maintained both inside and outside that it is impressive. Rick, you have thought of all the little things that make this cottage a beautiful home. Thanks for sharing your piece of heaven. I can't wait to return. I definitely recommend this property to rent. I can guarantee that you won't be sorry.
