About Bob Watkins

We are a family of 5 that loves everything about the water - swimming, skiing, playing, fishing, kayaking, or just simple watching it. We could no longer resist the temptation to have a more permanent 'base' to enjoy it.

Bob Watkins purchased this house in 2012

Why Bob Watkins chose Berkshires

Our family has spent the last 15 years enjoying Onota lake. We love it so much we decided to purchase a home on it. We plan on building many memories here and invite you and your family to do the same.

What makes this house unique

From the moment we walked into the large sun room on the second floor we knew this was the house. With it's 180 degree view of the lake and Berkshire Mountains there is no place better to be, unless of course you want to enjoy the huge covered deck right beneath it.

excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week. The house was clean with plenty of room for a family of 5. I loved the three season room overlooking the lake. I would wake up and drink my coffee while watching the birds landing on the lake. It was fun to take the boats out. The house is convenient to Route 7. We would do it again.

Outstanding home & location!

  • 5 of 5

My brothers & I stayed at this beautiful lake house for a week of bass fishing & relaxation. We had a fantastic time! The house in a great location on Lake Onota and has all the amenities and creature comforts you could ask for. The owner is pleasant and very helpful. The sunsets were outstanding and it was a great experience overall. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice stay at a scenic lake in the Berkshires.

Clean, well maintained and stocked lake house

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our time spent visiting family and friends. The view was gorgeous and the weather warm enough for us to enjoy the beautiful sun room. The house was clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. Upon our arrival in the evening, we had a small issue with the heating system. The owner returned our call very promptly and the issue was solved. We would definitely stay here in the future!

Most exceptional

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this lake house. It was set up to meet all my needs and then some. The rooms were clean, spacious and simply furnished. The location perfect for all the local area has. The neighborhood quiet and I felt totally safe. I hope to rent this house again. And I recommend it to any who are looking.
