About the property

This is a large house, suitable for up to two families, with three bedrooms.

For the winter, this lakeside Berkshire retreat is close to skiing and has all the amenities that a family could need. In the middle of winter, the ice on the lake can be thick enough for skating. It's fifteen minutes from Catamount ski hill, which is an excellent hill with runs that are suitable for beginners to advanced skiers. One thing we love about the hill is that they have the best instructors out of the many New York area ski hills, and they have a couple magic carpets, which is perfect for kids who are learning to ski. We bought this house not only because the lake is incredible from the spring to fall, but also because we love this ski hill so much. As a bonus, in the fall and summer, the hill has this incredible ropes course. Furthermore, we have someone come to shovel the snow if you're at our house when it's snowing. If you have kids, we have extra ski gear that you can borrow for them if it fits.

Designed to be comfortable and homey, our house has three bedrooms, two with queen beds and one with a double bed. We also have a double futon in the living room upstairs and a comfortable fold-out sofa bed downstairs. The house can accommodate ten people and it's suitable for kids. It has large, comfortable beds with new bedding, plenty of games, a large front lawn and a fire pit, which is fun at any time of the year.

For people looking for rentals from the spring to fall, we are located on the lake, one house away from the community beach and dock, which is lots of fun for kids. Also, the water near our house is deeper and has fewer weeds than other areas around the lake; residents around Robinson Pond come to our area to swim. Guests can use the two kayaks, a rowboat, paddleboat, life jackets and fishing rods.

In terms of cleanliness, we hire professional cleaners before and after your stay. We also have all dressers cleared for your use, as well as hangers for all of your clothes. We don't like clutter when we rent a place, so we don't have clutter in our place. You'll find you have plenty of places to put your things.

Our house comes with a full kitchen upstairs, and a refrigerator, sink, microwave and washer/dryer downstairs. The kitchen is fully stocked with multiple appliances, plates, cups, utensils, and spices. We also have towels, sheets and blankets for your use.
