About Dina Raymond
My husband, children( both twelve ) and our poodle Laura and I live on our property year round and love to share the beauty of the lake and it's surroundings with our guests. We have been renting all three of our cottages for 16 years! I am from NY and my husband grew up in Northampton. We met in Shelburne Falls and were married right here in our own backyard!
Dina Raymond purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Dina Raymond chose Goshen
The property has an interesting history. Originally the property was the Goshen Town beach and then was sold to the Raymond family in the 1950's.This gem of a lake has been a summer attraction for many guests from around the world for 16 summers!

Beautiful lake view
Our family really enjoyed staying at Dina and Bob's cottage. We had some bad weather and some gorgeous weather which did not stop us from swimming and playing in the lake. The cabin is super comfy with plenty of room to relax and the grounds were very spacious for my kids to run around and play as well. We were able to entertain some friends at the pond. We went on 3 nearby hikes in the DAR state forest. Super great and relaxing!
Thanks Zibby! Great to have you all here at the Goshen Ocean!!
All in one vacation! Best ever!
Welcoming accomodations on beautiful lake front
The studio is homey and comfortable, and Dina and Bob made us feel very welcome. And it was wonderful waking up in the early morning and taking the short walk down to the gorgeous lake, rowing a boat out while watching the mist rise and listening to the birds. We had a lovely stay and will definitely be back!
Restful and pleasant stay by the beautiful lake
The studio apartment was the perfect space for my family's (two adults and two kids) short vacation. The studio is clean and has AC and heating, beds are comfortable, the bathroom is large, and there is a small kitchenette. The entrance to the apartment is separate from the rest of the house and it leads onto a beautiful lawn in front of the private beach at the lake. Dina and her family are very friendly and welcoming, truly concerned with the comfort of their guests. We've stayed at "Goshen Ocean" many times and we always have an amazing time! Can't wait to come back!
We had a wonderful week in Goshen, including being able to host a once-in-a-child's-lifetime birthday party on the lake. Dina and Bob and their kids were very generous with their time, beach toys, and space. The distance to Northampton is surprisingly short, only 15 minutes, allowing us to commute back and forth easily when necessary. Thanks again, Raymonds!
Another Relaxing Two Weeks
This makes five vacations I have stayed here in Goshen, as you can tell, we love it here. We had several friends and relatives visit us, with some of them sleeping overnight in the spare bedrooms.
These charming and rustic cabins remind me of my uncle's lake cabin, and remind my wife of lake cabins she stayed at as a child in Canada. The cabins are always clean, and well stocked. We made most of our meals on site this time, which was fun, especially using the gas grills.
I highly recommend this rental. Many times we are the ONLY people on the lake, its amazingly clean, peaceful, and serene. Your hosts are always welcoming and helpful in finding local resources if you need them.
Come learn how to kayak, canoe, sail or row with their array of boats!
We are located 20 minutes from Northampton ,a dynamic town full of great shops and restaurants. The quaint town of Shelburne Falls, famous for it's Glacial Potholes and the Bridge of Flowers is 20 minutes drive,. Snow Farm offers an abundance of art classes from weaving to glassblowing. Great local produce abounds (seasonal) with Farmer's Market's selling crafts to organic food.There is also a fantastic yoga studio 3 miles from our property! There is zip lining ,downhill mountain biking and a fun mountain coaster ride ( year-round)at Berkshire East in Charlemont , a 20 minute drive away.
