Join us for an incredible 3-night Fall getaway to the Berkshires!  We'll be staying at the Lake House Guest Cottages of the Berkshires right on the shores of beautiful Pontoosuc Lake.  The region features something for everyone, so this can be a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style trip!  We'll be coordinating a group whitewater rafting trip (see below) on September 11 and will also plan a day of cycling along one of the region's several rail trails.  There is ziplining, aerial adventures and excellent museums nearby.  Take a hike or a drive up Mount Greylock to take in the sights, or go easy and lounge on the lakeshore at the cottages.  Our host offers free use of the waterfront, docks, patio, kayaks, paddle boards, canoe, peddle boat, life jackets, and more, so there's no pressure to even leave the grounds.

The $439 cost includes 3 nights accommodations in one of the "cottages."  This is a condo-style arrangement where we will share a multi-bedroom fully equipped cottage.  The only remaining bedrooms are a single King Bed per bedroom, so the trip is best suited to couples (or really good friends!) that are willing to share a bed.  We do have a few rooms that offer separate beds per room; however, they are already sold.  If you would like to go but do not have a roommate, please reach out to me first.

If registration is full, please sign up for the waitlist.  I will add additional cottages as soon as I have enough on the waitlist to fill one.  

Whitewater Rafting:    We have reserved a full day whitewater rafting trip along the Fife Brook section of the Deerfield River.  It is a dam-release river featuring class II rapids with one class III section.  A riverside picnic-style lunch is included, along with a slide show, showers, and all necessary equipment.  The rafting trip is optional, not included in the base price, and costs $120 per person (including all taxes and fees).

$300 Deposit due at time of registration.  Balance due by July 1.  Pay via check made payable to Upper Cape Ski & Sports Club PO Box 3149 Pocasset MA 02559. 

Please consult the club deposit/cancellation policy.
