Welcome to Lake Mattawa! Our charming house on the lake offers beautiful views from the elevated deck, as well as a private dock to jump right into the clear water. In cooler weather, enjoy a fire in the fieldstone fireplace. The house is close to all that Western Massachusetts has to offer during all 4 seasons - hiking, fishing, skiing, antiquing & more. 30 minutes from Amherst & Greenfield, 45 from Keene NH & Brattleboro VT, 60 from Springfield & Worcester, & 90 from Providence and Boston.

The space
The house is a lake retreat built in the 1950s from salvaged 19th century barn timbers and includes a fieldstone fireplace. The fireplace is usable throughout the year. The living room, kitchen and dining area are on the first floor and the bedrooms and bathroom are upstairs. The queen bedroom is accessible through the bathroom. There is a deck overlooking the lake as well as a private dock directly across the street from the house with a canoe and kayak. The canoe & kayak are usable as long as the lake is ice-free (generally April through November). The lake is well stocked and is a popular spot for local fishermen all year round. Lake Mattawa has a 10HP limit for boats, so there aren't any jetskis or loud motorboats.

Guest access
You'll have access to the whole house, the dock, the canoe, the kayak and as much of Lake Mattawa as you'd like!

Other things to note
The driveway is level with the basement, so the first floor is up a flight of stairs. The only bathroom is on the second floor, so if climbing stairs is a problem for any member of your group, our house may not be a good choice for you.

The house is located on a rural road lined with a mixture of summer and year-round homes. There is a small town beach less than half a mile down the road that's perfect for small children. Orange Center is less than 10 minutes from the house, and there are restaurants, gas stations, pharmacies and grocery stores all within 15 minutes of the house.

When I travel, I like to hike, I like to eat, and I like to explore local history. I love staying in AirBnbs because they give you much more of an opportunity to be immersed in the locale as opposed to a sterile, boring hotel. As a host, I love being able to offer a comfortable and affordable space for travelers from all over the world.
