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 Pittsfield

Our family has spent the last 20 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.

                                                        Wonderful house. Loved our visit.

                                                        Great house, wonderful location. We so enjoyed our time there.

                                                        Donna T.

                                                        I truly enjoyed my stay at the lake house. The layout of the house is perfect for families who want to enjoy swimming and kayaking. The fire pit was an added bonus. Waking up each morning with my coffee and viewing the lake was truly beautiful and peaceful!

                                                        I highly recommend it!!!

                                                        Great end of summer week

                                                        Larry S.

                                                        The house was fantastic!! Exactly as advertised. The house was clean, everything worked. We had a little problem but Bob was almost instantly accessible and it was fixed quickly, no muss, no fuss. We will definitely come back as we had a great week.

                                                        Beautiful, clean home, wonderful views

                                                        Mary H.

                                                        My daughter and I enjoyed our week here very much. The house and property are very clean and quiet. Kitchen is well-furnished, nice, clean fridge with a working in-door ice-maker. I could (and often did) spend all day on the 3-season porch that looks out onto Lake Onota. Lawn is beautiful and well-kept. It was a hot, humid week when we were there, but the bedroom AC units kept things cool and comfy at night. Great location, convenient to Lenox/Tanglewood. We discovered nearby Burbank Park (just off Valentine Road) with a flat, paved path along the lake and a little sandy beach. We loved it and will be back!

                                                        Loved our stay in this beautiful home with a great

                                                        Great lake house with lots of amenities really enjoyed our stay here beautiful views to the lake and load the three season room the house was clean and enjoyable and ready for our arrival some small comments for improvements would be better lighting in the three season room it's dark enough that you can't play a game at night adding a light kit to the fan and another lamp would probably be sufficient the same with the hallway there's no light in the hallway at all our biggest complaint would be the Wi-Fi which worked very poorly the entire time we were there it is extremely slow and does not work well please investigate this other than that this is a terrific Lakehouseand was terrific for our family

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        We are glad you enjoyed the home and are sorry for the issue you experienced with the wifi. We had the provider out to check it and have upgraded to a faster service.
