Hello, I'm a 65 year old snowbird spending 6 months in Ft. Lauderdale & traveling and 6 months in the Berkshires. I love South Egremont. Lots of beauty and really close to everything. I love to cook so my kitchen is well outfitted. I also will cater meals if you like. If you like to walk or hike this is the place for you and yet we are very close to Great Barrington. The view from this property is outstanding and setting is magical!
Jonathan Rick purchased this cabin in 2005
I have lived in the Berkshires since 1973 and before that I grew up in Sharon, CT just over the border line into CT. I love this area the natural beauty and the amazing amount of attractions available here.
Peace & quiet & lots of nature.
We loved everything about this place! The view, the leaves turning the fresh cool air, the stars, the sunrises! We loved the fireplace and cozy sofas to read & snuggle. Thank you for a magical week, we will be back!
A friend and I found this cabin to be even better than the accurate description in the listing. Yes, the cabin is vintage-but-updated with a great view and location. But it is also a space, inside and out, with the perfect ambience for a visitor who seeks comfort and beauty in the midst of glorious hills and woods. We weren't here to cook, but the kitchen is one where good cooking happens, so chefs will love it. The screen porch was our hangout when at home; probably the stone fireplace would be the centerpiece in winter. Jonathan is a thoughtful and skillful host. We recommend it most enthusiastically!
We really enjoyed our time at the cabin. The place is idyllic. Snow had fallen a day before, so we enjoyed warm drinks by the fire. With the town nearby we went out for dinner and had plenty of choices. The cabin is great, beautiful, and with the screened in porch, perfect for all season.
We were looking for a mountain getaway to celebrate our first anniversary - a little cabin in the woods with a big fireplace where we could relax with our dog, Ajax. Jonathan's cabin is everything we could have asked for. Beautifully situated in the woods of the Berkshire hills, you feel like you're alone. Views for miles. The cabin is cozy with all the amenities you could want. We cooked dinner there every night as well as breakfast. Used the fireplace all three nights, the wi-fi and the video set up every day. Although it feels like you're away from everything, it's a quick 7-minute drive to town. Jonathan was great with getting us in - emailing and texting directions as well as restaurant and grocery store recommendations. We now know where to go when we need a getaway in the mountains. Thanks, Jonathan, for enabling such a lovely anniversary weekend.
"Fair Rising" was very warm and inviting, clean, and fully stocked with all the comforts of home. My husband and I and our two female Bichon Frise really enjoyed ourselves and felt right at home. We both lead very busy and hectic lifestyles and it felt great to just step away from our everyday routines and just enjoy our time together with our little girls. The area is safe and conveniently located to restaurants, supermarkets, stores, gas stations, and much more. It was wonderful coming up to the Berkshires this time of the year (October) to see the changing of the leaves. We will definitely come again during the summer months to witness all the lush green trees, manicured yard, and the adjacent meadows. The views went on for miles and miles. We will be sure to recommend "Fair Rising" to all of our friends and family. We would like to thank Jonathan Rick for sharing his beautiful cabin with us and for all to enjoy. He was very informative and easily reachable by email.

The cabin is very pleasant and fully stocked to enjoy an extended stay whether you are spending all day in the cabin or venturing out to see the great sights, sounds and people of the berkshires. It's rustic, but that's the charm of the place for sure. All appliances worked fine and the fireplace was excellent! John was extremely helpful as we mapped out our potential tourist activities. Of course we couldn't do them all, but certainly enjoyed those we did pursue.
The color change of the leaves was beautiful. The deer and bobcats in the area around the cabin and the rustling of the wind and cool breeze out on the screened deck made for an "exactly what the doctor ordered" vacation!
We have just returned from seven weeks in this wonderful cabin in southern Berkshire County. The cabin is marvelous - with views that go on forever and a feeling of serenity that would be hard to equal anywhere. (This was our third visit) During the winter Jonathan made renovations that only serve to amplify the cabin's charm - raised ceilings in what we have come to think of as "our" bedroom with a skylight that let the moonlight come through - a cathedral ceiling likewise in the kitchen - a second window in the kitchen which brought the mountains even closer - and an outdoor shower (which I enjoyed every day!). The cabin's location, its charm, its place above the trees, its 30 mile views - its peace - all are wonderful. Thank you Jonathan for a wonderful summer. (ps our Lab "Sweet Loretta" had a wonderful time too and she sends her thanks as well!)
I am looking for renters for the entire summer season or at least the entire month of July and August.
