Lee Home

5 of 5
We had two families spend a long weekend at this home in Lee. The location was ideal. It was located near wonderful shopping and restaurants. We especially enjoyed Zucchini's in Pittsfield. The community in which the house is located allows for privacy, as the house is nestled in the trees. It also has wonderful amenities. We were able to take a short walk to the private lake and spent many hours on the tennis courts located next door. The house itself had everything needed to enjoy our weekend. The layout of multiple levels allowed the children to have a space for themselves to hang out in. The kitchen was well stocked with quality pots, pans and dishes. The owners were available to answer questions and always promptly returned our phone calls or emails. They take pride in their property and keep it well maintained. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a weekend in a beautiful location.
