Otis is a very peaceful and safe town tucked away in the foothills of the Berkshires.Never any crowds or traffic problems to contend with.
The beauty of the area and its culture was the background for many of Norman Rockwell's paintings.Its a place to take in what Mother Nature does best.
Almost waterfront location limits the direct motorboat/jetski noises and cost of direct waterfront properties without sacrificing a view of the water and quick access to the beach area.
This cottage was perfect for our family which includes a toddler and a dog. The beach was directly across the street (no pets allowed) and the dock is located a short walk away. We were able to let our dog swim off the dock and we spent time at the beach with our baby where there is also a giant sand box filled with toys which she loved.
The cottage was exactly as described and the owner was great to work with even letting us stay late on the day we checked out. We especially liked spending time on the front and enclosed porches.
We would certainly consider renting this cottage again if we return to Otis in the future.
My wife and I booked this great cottage.We wanted an area that was peaceful and where
we could swim without driving anywhere.This cottage turned out to be a great choice.
Rate was fair (as we checked around) booking was easy and our whole getaway turned into exactly what was needed.
The water was crystal clear with a sand and rock bottom at the beach area and every place around the Resevoir we swam.
.Having stayed at smaller ponds in the area and the Berkshires what a surprise this was.
No muck,weeds,lily pads etc.Also no one bothers you about just parking and jumping in or having a picnic lakeside.
Especially nice was the Tolland State Forest to bike,use beach or just walk through.Also noted a free boat launch
and parking area.
Overall cottage was perfect for us and we will return.
We booked here and enjoyed our vacation very much.
The weather was a bit chilly to swim the first day but we used the kayak provided by the owner
to explore the reservoir and fish from the dock at the beach area.
Ive never experienced a lake with such clean water and a sand and rocky bottom as Otis Resevoir.
No lily pads or muck to contend with like other lakes in the area (yuck)
At night the SAT TV with DVR service was a great little extra.
Also a ton of books to read and CDs were there.
Cottage was clean and quite comfortable.The outside deck was great for just reading the paper
relax or get some rays.
Gary the owner allowed us to extend our stay 2 more nights than originally planned at a discount!
All in all..Very pleased!
We rented this cottage for a last minute getaway having been in the general area before.
Making reservations was quick and easy and we found Gary (the owner) very friendly and easy to work with.
Upon our check in I was pleasantly surprised to see everything was basically as pictured on the Homeaway site.
Otis Resevoir is by far superior to any of the lakes in the area especially better than the ones we experienced in Beckett and surrounding towns.If you like clean pure lake water with a rock and sandy bottom this reservoir is the place.
Gary also allowed for us to checkout later than stated in the cottage info sheet so we had a full day extra to fish and boat.
Overall a great getaway spot!
We have vacationed in the Otis area before but really enjoyed our stay at this cottage the most.No other pond in the area compares with the water quality of
Otis Resevoir.The cottage was in a great location and had everything we needed to feel comfortable away from home.Reservations were fast and easy and our damage deposit was returned with in one week.
We have paid more for direct waterfront cottages but found being a bit off the water was a lot quieter when it came to the power boat noises.The beach across the street was a very relaxing place to be and our five year old had an absolute ball.We will be back!
Overall our family of three enjoyed our stay at this cottage.
The beach and swim area across the street was very nice and the water quality
was the best we have ever experienced.Having family in Otis we have stayed at others in the area but Otis Resevoir is by far the best and cleanest.
The cottage was cute and quite comfortable.We also enjoyed sitting on the outside deck at night.We have booked for next year already!
