4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Farmhouse On 2 Beautiful Acres In Northern Berkshires
About James Connolly
We are a family of four, we live and work on Long Island, NY, our kids are teenagers and we do not get up as much as we'd like due to their schedules. I work as an administrator at Hofstra University.
James Connolly purchased this Farmhouse in 2010
Why James Connolly chose Hancock
I love the historic house (but renovated) and the big yard with views to the mountains. And I love adventures, so I go ziplining, kayaking, hiking in the summer, drive to Vermont and explore stuff, antiquing, go to Tanglewood and sit on the lawn for an evening concert, the museums are great. I walk at the Clark Museum grounds or field farm or Greylock almost every day. And I love the beautiful drives everywhere and NO TRAFFIC LIGHTS.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The house is really well-appointed and decorated, homey, roomy - lots of space. I especially love the gazebo in the summer and walking around the grounds. Each room has photos and maps from the area - posters from the Clark Art Institute, photos of the mountains and Vermont and the Shaker Village nearby, Rockwell reproductions. Lots of blankets and books and movies for you to use.

Daughter's Graduation at Williams College
We spent four wonderful days here. Our daughter graduated from Williams College and wanted a place to spend some time after the graduation and celebrate with family. Loved the house, great location, beautiful surroundings and close to many places and activities. Thank you James's family for sharing your little piece of heaven in the Berkshires.
Awesome all around
This was our 2nd time staying here. It’s a great house with an awesome location — Jiminy Peak two minutes away. The communication with James is also fantastic. Looking forward to our 3rd visit next winter.
A lovely home, beautifully equipped and maintained.
The home was just what we wanted and we could not have been more pleased. It was perfectly located for skiing at Jiminy Peak and visiting local museums. I would love to see it in the spring and summer as well. The owner was very responsive and accommodating. We highly recommend it.
This was our second time staying at the farmhouse and we loved it. To sum it up. Perfect location with nicely appointed decor. The owner James could not be more accommodating. Looking to book this beautiful home again.
Awesome vacation rental
This was our second year staying here. The property is beautiful, the house is clean, cosy and well stocked and the area can't be beat. Our best rental experience on HomeAway. James is a great host. Would highly recommend.
Lovely, well stocked home and grounds.
The Berkshires are a rural area of great beauty, trails, outdoor activities with a wide variety of historic and arts and culture activities. Best times to visit are fall and summer, with great skiing in the winter.
