About the property

2 Bed, 2 Bath, Public Lake Access, Public Park next door, lots of local hiking

Backyard deck, full cellar, w/washer/dryer on first floor next to kitchen, outdoor patio and deck, sleeps 4, 2 private parking spaces. Public lake access within short walking distance across road. The house has a lake view from the front porch lake revealing the water fowl and plants the lake has to offer. We have observed eagles soaring and fishing multiple times on a serene spring day. Once while kayaking with a friend, the eagle dove right in front of us and sat on a tree limb at the waters edge as it devoured the large lake trout it caught!

The lake house on 6 Lacona Street is quaint and comfy for total relaxation and serenity. The backyard with manicured lawn and beautiful flower bed is perfect for reading and eating at the patio table.

There are (2) kayaks available for your use.

About Lynn Bassett

I moved to Lanesboro in 2013 to work at the local public school and just had to be near the lake. I live with my best friend , Bubba-Boo my black cat and we love the lake. I hike Mnt Greylock often and kayak as much as possible. Balance Rock state forest is just up the road and also has some great hiking trails. I love to go to the live theater (Shakespeare) shows and the Williams College sporting events. There are so many great restaurants to try out. I frequent a few local diners in-town that are just fantastic for home cooked meals!

Lynn Bassett purchased this house in 2013

Why Lynn Bassett chose Pittsfield

This lake view house is perfect for 4 people that want to have some healthy fun. The walking/bike path is less than 1 mile away and is so relaxing on a lazy day. The public lake access just down the road is a short walk and is a pleasure to use. During the winter the lake is frozen and everyone enjoys the ice skating, snowmobiling, ice fishing and cross country skiing on the lake. Bon fires lite up the clear nights as people enjoy the lake during the winter months. In the summer the lake comes alive with the summer lake people out on the water for fishing derby's and fun. The lake contains 2 islands, a public beach and many access roads to launch canoes and kayaks. This lake house is simply beautiful. quaint and perfectly located for lake and local area fun. Come and enjoy yourself.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful, quiet street neighborhood. Public park just across the road. Short walk down the street to the public lake access to launch your canoe. Walk across the road and out onto the frozen lake to join in the fun that everyone enjoys on the lake during the winter months. Front porch and back deck areas for sitting and relaxing.

My family and I spent 5 nights at this sweet little house. We enjoyed the back yard and felt right at home. Lynn is the most considerate host. I hope to come back real soon!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed hosting my lake view house this summer. This is the first year we partnered with HomeAway to rent out our home. We are blessed to have had the best people stay at our home. We were fortunate to have met some very interesting and wonderful people from all over the country who treated our home as theirs. Best, Lynn
