Enjoy our direct waterfront cottage on the favored and quiet cove on Third Bay, Highland Lake. Perfect for couples or families. A
It is a Victorian beauty, but fully restored in 2016 to high standards.
Fully equipped kitchen, open-concept. We repurposed original and vintage materials for this loved Victorian era cottage during our restoration. Every window and door has a story. Just ask us!
The cottage boasts central air throughout, radiant heat and an easy-to-use beautiful brick, gas fireplace. Great for crisp mornings.
Bedrooms include: one queen, one full and 2 bunks. Wake up in the queen and full bedrooms to sunrise on the lake. Spectacular views. Also upstairs, is a comfortable reading area and desk, a full bathroom with a 2 person, fully tiled shower, while the downstairs bath boasts a sparkling, new claw foot soaking tub.
Downstairs, you will find a fully equipped kitchen, full-sized fridge, dual-fuel stove (gas stove top/electric oven), dishwasher and apron farm sink. Guests can dine on the old world dining table and Hitchcock chairs made locally, or at the kitchen peninsula. We have an open concept kitchen/dining/living room area which opens, through french doors, onto a large deck, just steps from the lake front. Enjoy the gas grill and picnic table for afternoon BBQs or glowing white lights and sunsets for a lovely evening dinner party.
Bring your boat or jetski and tie up at our lakefront dock. This lake is great for swimming, boating, water-skiing and fishing. Private lawn and water front. Sunny side of the lake. The cottage is close to 'the Secret Spot,' (shallow area great for small children to play in the water).
Our town offers wonderful restaurants and grocers using locally produced food, Farmer's Markets (don't miss Litchfield's Saturday Farmer's Market!), the Gilson Cinema/Cafe, Antiquing, nearby fly-fishing, hiking, and biking. Stop in at a local farm for just picked corn or tomatoes, or an after dinner ice-cream cone.
For anyone up for a Berkshires experience, we are less than a one hour, country drive from Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co., Stockbridge, Great Barrington, Lenox, and the Outlets at Lenox.
During the summer, we request a minimum 7 day booking, Saturday to Saturday. Also, we cannot accommodate pets, due to potential allergies of renters. However, there is a highly respected kennel close to the other side of the lake.
Of course, it's great in the summer, but fall and winter offer their own special activities. Fall leaves, apple picking, hay rides and pumpkin patches in the country. Winter snow, skiing, flannel sheets and cozy fires. Our cottage can comfortably accommodate all seasons!
During off season (all dates other than in June, July, August), rentals of 3 days + have a reduced rate of $200 per night).+ More
