Private Get-away, Stunning Views
My girlfriend and I rented this cottage last July 2008 as a quiet two week get-away. We were looking for a place where we would have access to a variety outdoor activities and the summertime Berkshires cultural scene. The cottage is at the top of a beautiful cut field just on the margin with the woods - a great bird-watching spot. There are stunning westerly views to Twin Lakes below and the mountain ridge in the distance. The private access road is just over a 1/2 mile long and has a few bumps but was easily managed by us and visiting friends with a variety of rides including a low-slung Porsche Boxster. We initially left our 15' Whaler at the bottom of the driveway in an open parking area well off the street and later at the dock. The lake and the private dock are a pleasant 6-8 minute walk down the hill through the field. On days we didn't want to walk or had too many coolers and lake toys, we drove the car down to the lake. The lake is crystal clear with an excellent bass and brown trout fishery. Kayaks can get access to the second (West Twin) lake under a low set of bridges that blocks access to most power boats. The description of the cottage is accurate. It's best described as Ralph Lauren rustic. It's tastefully decorated and is a comfortable place for two couples or a family of 4-6 max. The covered porch with lake & mountain views was a favorite place to watch sunsets or the T-storms rolling in from New York state. The cabin was professionally cleaned and well maintained given that it is a vintage cabin. No issues with the deposit. We would recommend this property to those who enjoy the outdoors and are looking for a quiet and romantic hide-away.
