Great place for us to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were staying here to celebrate Thanksgiving with family in a neighboring town. With 4 bedrooms, it made it possible for our extended family w/ two grandchildren to all be together. It really was lovely to be able to share this space. The living room / dining room, one large space, enabled us to watch the little ones while enjoying our coffee. This back room look out through a porch where you can see the lake. How much fun was it to see the ice forming, the mallards, geese and even a great blue heron on the lake in the morning. If this place was wonderful in late fall, it must be even better in the summer. Those kayaks looked so inviting!

Great cabin right on water with great foliage views

  • 5 of 5

Great 4 bed cabin with open floor plan that was perfect for a guys golf trip. Slept 6 comfortably but could have been up to 9 if needed. Nice yard with fire pit and hammock and great views of fall foliage. We didn’t use the kayaks/canoes but there were about 5 total available for use. Would definitely rent again.

Great price for 4 bedroom on lake

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Ashmere Lake. Took advantage of kayaks and canoe. Did some fishing out on water and off of docks. Caught a 15" Bass and a couple of pickerel. Lake very quiet in the morning- enjoyed sitting on dock (got to watch out you don't step in duck poop) having morning coffee and relaxing in hammock. House clean- newer bathrooms, but living room couch and 3 season furniture cushions need to be replaced, not comfortable at all. Went to Ozzies Steak n Egg for dinner-if larger party-make reservations ahead of time as not many restaurants nearby. Also enjoyed Apple squeeze festival in Lenox, Ma and hiking Kennedy Woods- just watch out for the Black bear also enjoying the woods.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We aim to make the house comfortable for our guests so always appreciative. We've replaced the couch with a broyhill couch and loveseat in the inside living area and will be replacing the cushions on the porch for next spring. Thanks again and hope to have you back. Regards, Mike

Lakeside Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! 3 generations stayed and hiked Greylock one day, finishing off with a meal at Bob's Country Kitchen. The evening was spent relaxing outside by the fire pit and watching the sunset illuminate the clouds hovering above the lake. The next day we took the canoe out on the lake and spotted a bald eagle atop a tree on the adjacent island. The afternoon was teaching the young ones to fish and we caught three bass off the dock, first fish for the 4 yr old! Definitely recommend this place to anyone and the owners/property is very organized and renting was seamless. Thanks for the memories.

Spacious, homey, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property the weekend of New Years Eve to be close to family in the area. For the price, we really got our money's worth! Everyone had a comfortable place to sleep, plenty of room to gather for meals, and by the fireplace! My only regret was not renting in the summer months! The lake view was too tempting, although we watched neighbors across the lake shovel out an ice rink and play hockey! Already looking into when we can make it back!
