Cabin near the lake
Cute little cabin with lots of things to do in the area. The scenery in the area is beautiful. The cabin was fine for a short visit with friends.
The adjacent second shower is outside attached to the shed. We did not realize that it was not attached via a walkway or some sort of covering. It was too cold to shower in the room as we could not find the heater for the room. If it was summer, the outdoor shower would have been fine. The "adjacent" notation was on the description. I guess we just did not think that meant outdoors.
The location of the cabin parking is a distance from the entrance to the property. We simply parked near the entrance to unload, then promptly moved our vehicles to the designated parking space. It was not any issue at all, but should be noted that there is no parking near the cabin.
It was very dark when we arrived. Thankfully, the instructions for finding the property were very thorough. Don't let GPS take you to the location. We were directed to a scout camp with a locked gate. Follow the written instructions from property owner.
We initially planned on using the paddle boat and the flat bottom boat, but both were filled with water. Again, not a problem, but it would have been fun to have gone out onto the lake. The area is gorgeous. There is a pier that you can use to walk out and view the lake, but no walking access to wander around the lake area.
It was a nice location for the quick reunion with friends from Canada. We enjoyed the nearby parks and tourist locations.
Please do follow our exact directions to the house -- GPS is sometimes mistaken! The second shower is enclosed in a shed with lights, next to the house, as indicated in the description. I have updated our description that guests should unload in front of the house and then park. After a rainfall, our handyman can help bail out water from the boats.
Fall foliage wonderland
Carol’s home was immaculate , cozy and well furnished with everything you’d need. Being close to the lake was wonderful - loons calling , geese and ducks getting ready to fly south and the foliage was breath taking. Carol was very responsive and available to us and left detailed instructions which made our stay easy . This is a precious goldmine of a cottage in an area filled with lots of things to do in the area ... biking/ hiking/ zip lines/museums .... and stores close by for easy access . Thank you Carol for sharing your home with us .
Nice Lake Cabin
Nice Lake cabin on Richmond Pond, centrally located in the Berkshires. We had 4 guys and it worked well for use. Very nice and open living room
Well designed, open and warm, facilities were excellent. The dock and pond top it off. We were very pleased to stay there and hope to return.
Comfortable, cool house,5 min. from lake
House was quite comfortable in a very welcoming neighborhood, and only 5 minutes from the lake. Loved the sliding wrap around window doors in living room. Opening them kept the living room nice and cool. House is only 10 minutes from town which is a plus.
The house is on a slope, so anyone who has difficulty traversing an incline should be forewarned
Actually, the house is on a flat lawn but one path to the house from our private road is inclined; however, the path from the parking area is flat.
This is a nice spot for a weekend get away. We were there for a wedding and it worked out very well. Easy and simple instructions-very nice camp.
Please follow our directions to the house, GPD is often mistaken.
