|Minimum Stay||6 nights|
This beautiful, bright & sunny 3 bedroom home was built in 1997 and was completely refurbished in 2004 when my wife and I purchased it. This is not a 'rental' house (we use it as our family ski house all winter). It sits on 10 acres and is very private. Has outstanding views, an enormous yard (great for kids), and tastefully landscaped. The furnished screened in porch sits upon a very large wrap around deck to enjoy the views and beautiful summer nights in the Berkshires. There is a stream running along the entire property that is very relaxing to listen to at night. The proximity to the stream and woods also offers great exploring.
Large open floor plan with living room and kitchen on first floor with an oversized stone floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the living room. All three bedrooms are on the second floor. The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, master bath and a private deck overlooking the mountains.
Master Bedroom; king bed (2nd floor)
Guestroom #1; queen bed (2nd floor)
Guestroom #2; full and twin beds (2nd floor)
Whether you stay for the entire season or just a week you will find that the house is relaxing, clean and comfortable. We look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for considering our Berkshire home for your vacation.

My wife & I purchased this home in 2003 so we could enjoy the beautiful Berkshires together as a family in a clean, comfortable & care free environment. It is a place where we go to 'get away' and be together with few distractions. We are a skiing family and live on the coast therefore do not use the house in the summer and would like to offer it to someone who appreciates the area and the relaxed atmosphere the house and area offer.
Rick & Ronda purchased this house in 2003
The house is 2.5 hours from both NYC and Boston. It also is just 10 minutes from Jiminy Peak Resort which is terrific place to visit in the summer. Also close to Great Barrington, Southern Vermont and Tanglewood. The areas wonderful day trips are endless in all directions.
You will find our home to clean and comfortable and an all around great place to vacation.
I must confess that I found this listing after another lease agreement happened to fall through at the last minute. Well, that's the best thing that could have happened to me, a blessing in disguise. Loving all the Western Mass summer attractions, I never stayed on the New York side of the Berkshires before. If that is your concern, don't fret. Tanglewood is less than 25 minutes away, and many other great spots are also close: the Shakespeare Theatre, Barrington Theatre, museums, great restaurants, and lots of hiking and nature. I've been staying in the Berkshires for years, and this property has the most beautiful view I have ever seen. It's so open, bucolic, serene -- and the backyard is well maintained, so sitting in the back, and playing in the grass, is a joy not overwhelmed by bugs and wild growth all over (all of that is kept at a safe, but beautifully close, distance). The house itself is spacious enough to be comfortable for several people, and it's VERY clean. This is important when you're staying so close to the woods and mountains. I didn't see anything more than a couple ants while I was there. It's not an overstatement to say that my summer stay in the Berkshires this year was magical and unforgettable; and Rick's family's place allowed that to happen. You can tell that he and his family love this house and take good care of it. That's always a good sign. If you want beauty and comfort and all things Berkshires, then this is a wonderful place to stay. You absolutely will not be disappointed. And, it most certainly helps that in all his dealings, Rick is quickly responsive and easy to reach. I strongly recommend.
We love everything about this house! It is beautiful, spacious and comfortable, in a private setting with amazing mountain views. This was a fantastic spot for our family of 5 which includes 3 kids ages 10 - 15. Our children loved exploring the wooded areas around the house including a creek and playing ball on the huge lawn. It offers a perfect balance of a tranquil setting and nearby adventure. Museums, nature trails, Shaker Village and shopping are all within close driving distance. The house was spotless, had a well equipped kitchen, large fireplace, and beautiful master suite (super comfy king size bed) with mountain views and an outdoor deck. Really, we could not ask for a better relaxing and rejuvenating destination. The only down side was having to leave at the end of our stay!
Wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU, Rick, for sharing your beautiful home with us. Our stay last summer was just perfect ~~ warm days with cool mountain breezes at night ~enjoyed especially on the porch! Your home was the perfect spot for my husband and I to get away ~ our own private home away from home. Had a great time exploring Great Barrington for shopping and great food but could easily come home to prepare our own meals when we wanted since everything we could have needed was right there. So peaceful, clean and comfortable in every way. Thanks again, Rick! It was great talking with you and we'll be in touch again soon. Planning our next visit ~ this time with the kids. We know they're going to love it too! So glad we discovered you ~~ Regards, Carla
We've stayed here several times and can't wait to go back. The house is centrally located and convenient to all Berkshire attractions, but the house itself is the best part of the trip. There is something about this house that just makes you relax as soon as you walk in. The views are amazing, there is plenty of room, but it still feels cozy. We went with 2 adults and 3 kids, and it never felt crowded. We all enjoyed sitting around the fireplace so much that we didn't turn on the TV at all.
The house has everything you could want, and the owner, Rick, is great to deal with. Our first time there, we arrived to find the coffee maker wasn't working. I called Rick, and a new one delivered the next day! He even got us some nice gourmet coffee for our trouble.
If you are considering renting this place, go for it, just don't take our week! (too late, it's already booked!)
This was a fabulous rental by every measure. The house itself was beautiful, comfortable, and clean. The setting couldn't have been more splendid, with a big lawn and views of the nearby Berkshires and fields of wildflowers. The views could be enjoyed from inside the house as well as from the screened in porch, 2nd floor deck, and lovely lawn. The owner was also a pleasure to deal with and gave us many helpful tips about nearby activities. We highly recommend this rental.
20 minutes from Tanglewood
Great location for nearby day trips to Southern VT, Williamston, Great Barrington, Stockbridge. Queechy Lake (great swimming spot) is 15 minutes away.
