Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you! Our visit was fabulous!! Perfect weekend weather and all. We canoed the lake and were thrilled to see the Canadian geese in "FLOCKS" come in - we didn't even mind their constant squawking through the night and into the morning - LOVED it! I have some great photos to take home with us and share with family and friends. We would love to stay here each year and are hoping to make it possible! Love your place, sweet, clean and just lovely! I highly recommend here to anyone looking for a piece of the Berkshires!

My Summer by Laurel Lake

  • 5 of 5

Renting a house on a lake was a wonderful experience. The house was fully equipped with everything I wanted and not far from Lenox proper. My husband and I bought tickets to various plays in Williamstown, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Jacob's Pillow and Tanglewood. It only had 2 bedrooms, but our grandchildren slept in the 2nd bedroom and our daughter & son-in-law pitched a tent in the grassy backyard when they visited. When it rained they moved into the screened porch on an air mattress. The house was in the woods which gave us privacy, but close to all things we wanted to do. It was smallish, but perfect for us seniors.

Lovely place to relax and enjoy your vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have visited the Cooney Cottage for two years in a row, and are planning our third visit. The house is lovely – the owners take obvious care of the home and they provide everything you can imagine, from kitchen supplies to towels to jigsaw puzzles. Each year, I look forward to my week spent on the porch, dividing my time between a book and simply gazing out at the lake, though last year I did venture out in one of the kayaks to look for the eagles who were rumored to be nesting by the lake. If you are looking for a place to really relax, you’ve found it, and I can’t recommend this cottage highly enough.

Comfy cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage! It was very clean and comfy. We especially liked sitting by the beautiful, peaceful lake. The location is ideal. Lenox is a great town. The owners of the cottage were very nice and communicated with us well. We'll be back!

The Perfect Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the 41st year that I have spent at least a portion of the summer in the Berkshires. I have never stayed anywhere else this perfect. The cottage has all of the amenities described in the listing. It is comfortable and welcoming. I love the screened in porch overlooking the lake. The porch is where I spend most of my time. The lake is beautiful and ever changing. I love to watch the firsherman out early in the morning. There is usually a cool breeze. My friends and family enjoy swimming, boating and grilling in the lovely yard.

This cottage is alway imaculate upon arrival. It is easy to keep clean. The kitchen is very good to work in.

I can't think of another place I'd rather be to escape the heat and crowds of the city. I look forward to many more summers in the Cooney Cottage. My grandkids love to play in the sand and swim in the shallow portion of the lake. My daughter swam all the way across the lake this summer. It is just a perfect place to be.

Since I am very familiar with the area, I know that Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow and Shakespeare and Company are just minutes away. It's fun to have cocktails on the terrace at The Mount and imagine that Edith Wharton is part of the party.

Each summer, a trip to Williamstown, either to the theater or the marvelous Clark Museum is a must.

I can't imagine being anywhere else.

Wonderful place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for the first time during the summer of 2010. It was the best place I've ever stayed in the Berkshires and this was my 39th summer. The Cooneys are great landlords and no question was deemed silly or useless. I was especially thrilled to share the lakefront with my son, daughter-in-law and one year old granddaughter. We all enjoyed the peace and quiet. It has all the amenities you could possibly want. I can't wait to return to this slice of heaven.
