Second visit was as good as the first
Stayed over a week and enjoyed the quiet mountain top with wonderful views.
Great bird watching. Took in local culture such as the Clark Museum and the Susan B. Anthony home and lots more. There is a nice 22 mile bicycle path within a mile of the cottage which provided a nice adventure for us. Mt Greylock was a fun place to spend a day. We hiked in Vermont which is close by and MA. Wayne is very accommodating and friendly. The Cottage is clean, well maintained, and has a great screened in porch with French doors which open fully to make the porch into an extension of the cottage, We spent lots of time there listening to nature. Stars are spectacular with great views of the Milky Way. The mountain top provides a nice breeze in hot weather. I highly recommend the cottage for a getaway with plenty of activities and culture close by. We saw 2 concerts at Tanglewood. The outside tickets are only $20 and the outside is a as good or better experience than the inside!
Cozy and convenient
We have been staying in the Berkshire area for years and recently had to find a new property, we were pleased by this cottage. Upon making the arrangements the owner was very helpful and answered questions promptly. The home was clean and cozy for this family of three. My daughter loved sitting on the window seat, it was like her own perch. We travel often to Williamstown and North Adams so the location of this home was perfect. The only reason I am rating this home with 4 stars instead of 5 stars is the cottage sits right behind the main house so we really didn't feel as if we could explore the surrounding area. We were also hoping to roast marshmallows but there was no firepit. All in all it is a lovely place to stay.
The set-up is this: I live in the antique farmhouse near the road, and the cottage is about 70 feet uphill and to the rear of the farmhouse. Both houses enjoy privacy since the farmhouse is oriented to the south and west, the cottage to the north and east. Each feels as if it's in a world of its own.
I'm so sorry to learn that the visitor felt inhibited about exploring the property, because that's something I encourage people to do. Visitors often make use of the expansive lawns between the two houses, moving Adirondack chairs down there, picking raspberries, walking their dogs and so forth. I suspect that the reviewer, hailing from the big city, may not have had the full hang of country ways!
Please come and treat the property, truly, as your home away from home!
Great foliage first weeks of October
We had a great week in October in this well maintained cottage. It has great windows for the warm weather and good heat for the cold. Borders park land so the stars are wonderful - its worth it just for the stars. Good birdwatching. Nice host.
Mass MOCA are is a short drive. Lots of local fun to be had. Plenty of peace, quiet and nature too.
Dont miss the Crane paper company tour. (Its where they make the paper for US currency).
We will be visiting again.
