Cummington Fair Starts Today!

Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy all that the Hilltowns of the Pioneer Valley have to offer. There are so many activities to choose from: hiking, swimming, kayaking, tubing, antiquing, and county fairs, to name a few. Today is the opening day of the 148th Cummington Fair. It is my personal favorite, because the setting is lovely and wooded. It's off the beaten path, and the drive to and through Cummington is beautiful. It's got all the bells and whistles of any county fair - cotton candy, candy apples, overpriced games where you can win "prizes" that will wind up in the recycling bin, pony rides, loads of animals, etc.

While you are driving through the hill towns, be sure to check out Maple and Main Realty's hill town listings!

The Cummington Fair runs today, August 25th, through Sunday, August 28th. Check out the schedule here.


A Charming Getaway by Norwich Lake!

 

 

Nestled on a beautiful 1-acre lot, just 4/10 of a mile from Norwich Lake, sits this charming and cozy summer weekend getaway cottage at 208 Norwich Lake in Huntington, MA.  The home comes with boat access to the lake, and is merely a 20 minute drive to Northampton center.  The yard is cleared - with space for a fire pit, barbecues, and whatever outdoor games you enjoy - badminton, bocce, volleyball, etc.  Beyond the cleared area, the land is wooded, with lovely views of the mountains and fields across the street.  The current owners have taken great care of the home, which has a newer septic system, plus updated electrical and plumbing systems.

The lake association fee is $150 +/- per year for access to the boat ramp.  Running water is provided by the association for a yearly fee (TBD).  Since this is a seasonal home, water is turned on from April 15th to October 15th (or thereabouts).  Offered at $150,000 - this cottage would make a perfect family summer weekend getaway.  Contact Julie Held (julieheld@mapleandmainrealty.com) for showings or more information.
