Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

The Bungalow is a private waterfront home on Otis reservoir with

breath taking views from almost every window. This 3 bedroom, 1 bath

completely furnished cottage is just right for a couple or family

looking for a great summer vacation spot. The Bungalow offers a

private wrap around deck just 10 feet from the waters edge.

Is boating your game? Is fishing your past time? This is the place

for you. Otis reservoir is the biggest recreational body of water

in the state of Massachusetts. The lake has some of the best bass

fishing around. In the past the lake has

been stocked with Atlantic salmon. The aunt and uncle of this

cottage owner, has had the pleasure of reeling in a 10 pound, 30'


Off-season time is just as beautiful as the summer. The fall

foliage reflecting off the water is a sight to be held. X-country

skiing, snowmobile, ice fishing, is right outside the front door.

Downhill skiing is only 10 to 20 minutes away. Take advantage of the

discounted off-season rates but still enjoy the beauty of the

Berkshires at your front door.

The Bungalow has a large kitchen with many cabinets and counter

space. The living room and dinning room face the water with 3 walls

of windows to view the sunrise and the sunset. There are two open

decks for your enjoyment. One half of the upper deck is covered

with an awning. The other have is open where you will have the use

of a gas grill for outdoor cooking, which is easy access from the

kitchen. The lower deck is covered where there is a Hatters Hammock

hanging for those peaceful afternoon snoozes.

There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, one with a king bed and other with two

twin beds. On the first floor there is 1 bedroom with a queen bed.

The bathroom is also on the first floor. There is a washer and

dryer in the basement that you can get to from the kitchen or from

the outside.

This cottage has been well kept and maintained by its owners for

many years.

Serene Summertime Getaway Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cottage along with my sister and her husband for a week in July, a few years in a row. The last time was 2014, after which we moved away from New England. (The date in this review wouldn't allow me to go back any further.)

We all had such a wonderful time in this serene, cozy summertime cottage. All the amenities are here, with a beautiful wrap-around porch right on Otis Reservoir. Perfect for docking a motorboat, kayaking, and swimming.

The cottage and entire property were always very clean, and the owners were always accommodating to our needs.

We loved spending family time, barbecuing, swimming, boating, and sitting on the lakeside porch, sipping early morning coffee in total peace and quiet.

This is an amazing place, not to be missed!
