If you enjoy the simple life- this is it! Seasonal fishing camp that has been a joy for the present owner since 1970. Rustic as it may be, it is a comfortable place to get away and relax. Set high off Rt 7 the cottage is original Orvis cute. 3 season use. There is a large main room that is anchored by a fireplace with a wood stove, has a lofted ceiling with open beams and a large window looking east. Wood flooring and paneling adorn this 16 x 35 cabin. There’s rudimentary “kitchen” sink & counter. Simple shower stall and toilet in the bath and the bunk room is cozy. Down the spiral staircase leads to a walk out lower level room with a woodstove and native stone wall interior. A small mechanical room is beyond. Set on roughly 1.5 acres with mountain brook (house water source) as the northern border and the Housatonic State Forest snuggles the property on the west and south sides. Roadside parking. That’s it…simple, charming, rustic and not fussy an unappreciated lifestyle in today’s world!
