    The extraordinary Palmer Brook Lake property surrounds a totally private 125 acre lake with no development on the shore other than a 1400sf log cabin built as a clubhouse for members-only Berkshire Fishing Club. Nearly one mile of town maintained road frontage, with docks, dam and hiking trails. Limitless possibilities as an estate parcel, shared development, or to grow as a commercial enterprise. Background: The property was purchased in 1968 and an earthen dam was constructed to create Palmer Brook Lake. First formed when a stream was dammed over 40 years ago, this private lake has a completely natural look and appeal. The property and lake has been used solely for recreational purposes - camping, hunting, sailing, hiking, fishing. In 1998 a private membership fishing club was established, The Berkshire Fishing Club, developed to maintain and monitor the property in the absence of the owners.

Amenities: This property is a paradise, a home to beavers, otters, nesting geese and common mergansers as well as other water fowl and birds. Great opportunities exist for hunting or observing white tailed deer, black bear, moose, ruffed grouse and wild turkey. The lake has a very strong largemouth bass population which offers some of the best fishing opportunities in the region. A recently built, rustic log cabin overlooks the lake and is the only dwelling on the property. A recently built, rustic 24 by 44 foot log cabin overlooks the lake and is the only dwelling on the property. one mile of town maintained road frontage, with docks, dam and hiking trails. There are skiing resorts, golf clubs, hiking trails, and famous cultural institutions such as Tanglewood (concerts), Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Shakespeare and Co. (theatrical productions) and other musical and theatrical summer groups â“ all located nearby. For those who crave the tranquillity and beauty of true wilderness yet also want access to fine dining and the arts, all within easy reach of New York or Boston, this is a rare chance not to be missed. The Sale: The owners have come to realize that th...
