Welcome to the HIDEWAY CHALET. A WATERFRONT LAKEHOUSE (swim,boat,fish) in a private setting directly on spring fed, crystal clear Lake Mattawa. Large, flat backyard with the tranquil sounds of a waterfall at the edge of the property. Open concept living with a wood fireplace and pellet stove. The house is well designed and provides a beautiful, quiet setting for your vacation. NEW: KITCHEN AND FIRST FLOOR BATH REMODEL completed in June 2021. New pictures are in the listing.

The space
As you enter the house from the kitchen you immediately see the lake from across the room. It’s amazing how relaxed you feel the moment you walk in the house. There are hardwood floors throughout and wood beams in the ceiling that give it a rustic feel. Most of the house has been recently updated and has an open concept design. The internet works great and we have "YouTube TV" for live TV. There is a DVD player in the finished basement and we have a bunch of movies you can use. We also have a few classic board games. There is an iPhone charger and a Bluetooth speaker.

There are two new kayaks, a canoe and floats for your use. We have 3 adult life jackets and 2 kid size life jackets. Youth less than 12 must wear jackets while boating and from 9/15 through May 15 adults must wear them while in the boat. During the summer months adults don’t have to wear the jackets but they must have them in the boats.

The house comes with a brown carport that fits 2 cars. In the months when there is no snow, you can park in the road next to the house.

Where you’ll be

Orange, Massachusetts, United States

This is a very quiet wooded area and the house sits on 1.75 acre. The view of the lake is great with a large, flat back yard that leads directly to the lake. There is a dirt road to get to the house. In the winter you will want to have an AWD vehicle in case there is snow (if no snow, you’ll be fine). Please refer to the pictures on the site to make sure you don’t miss the turn for the driveway. You’ll need a car to get to shopping, restaurants and local attractions. I recommend getting your groceries first so that you don’t have to go back out shopping.
