Local x-country skiing is 20 mins away. Snow shoeing and ice skating opportunities are all close-by. In the summer, the home includes a pass to the members-only Queechy Lake with a swimming beach w/lifeguard that is perfect for families. The town park with tennis and basketball courts, soccer field and a playground is just a 5 minute walk from the house. Hiking, biking and running trails all close-by. Farmers' markets, apple orchards, summer camps for kids, kayaking, world-class museums, movie theaters, shopping, antiquing and dining experiences ranging from James Beard award winning chef-owned restaurants to roadside BBQ stands all nearby. Truly the perfect Berkshires location: 2h15m from NYC, 10 mins off the Taconic. 2h10m from Boston, 7 mins off I-90. 35 mins from the Amtrak in Hudson.

House Description:

The house has 3+ bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. There's a mudroom entry to the main floor, which features a bright kitchen w/breakfast nook, dining/living area w/fireplace, a half bath and a large deck with seating areas, outdoor rug, bbq and mountain views. Bedroom #1 is on the main living level, has a queen-size bed and features an updated, en suite bathroom with luxury 3-head shower.

Upstairs features bedrooms #2 and #3 as well as a loft area. Bedroom #2 contains a modern, queen-sized four-post bed and has an en-suite entry to a "jack-n-jill" bathroom (i.e., a toilet with a sink on both ends and a bathtub/shower in the middle). Bedroom #3 has a full-size bed and a toddler bed. The loft has a flat-screen TV connected to the internet via Roku (there is no cable) and has a full-size mattress on the floor that can be used as extra sleeping space.

The downstairs level has a large family room with a ping pong table/kids' toys/etc., a bonus bedroom (currently unfurnished, but can be made accessible for an additional fee) and an additional full bath.

The home sits on almost 4 acres, has a large open yard, meadow areas and serene views of the Taconic/Berkshire range. It is the perfect home for a family that craves peacefulness, but wants room to entertain family/friends. It is away from it all, yet really close to charming towns, top-notch culture and outdoor activities - come relax and re-charge here.

4-Season Country Escape at Bright & Airy Berkshires Home
average rating of 4.714286 based on 7 reviews

Spacious, comfortable, extremely well-equipped home in a convenient and tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a superb weekend here with family members coming from various locations. The house is very comfortable with lots of light and beautiful views from the living room and deck. The kitchen is excellent, with a large refrigerator, stove and ovens. The living areas are great, with comfy seating, plus really great lighting for reading at night. The bedrooms and bathrooms were fitted out with quality sheets/towels/soaps. The house had very positive energy, and encouraged easy conversation. Our 2 1/2 year old felt right at home with all the toys and child furniture. The location is fantastic - not far from the Taconic and very close to attractions in the Berkshires. The only difficulty was spotting the driveway. We put up a flag at the end of the driveway to make it easy for our family members to find it, which worked great.

We highly recommend the house.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

Clean, nicely decorated, well-equipped house in a pretty location. Easy drive to Tanglewood. Owner was extremely responsive and a pleasure to deal with.

Exterior of the house and deck need a little TLC. Current beds configuration can only really handle 6 adults, 2 small kids and 1 toddler unless you opt for the air mattress in the basement bedroom for an extra charge. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Lovely home on the Berkshire borders

  • 4 of 5

We had a really relaxing few nights stay at Anuj and Heather's country home. It was perfect for our christmas getaway, with a nice log fire and a very well equipped kitchen. It was exactly as expected by the pictures, only bigger. Our Daughter enjoyed the playroom and we enjoyed the deck! Anuj was very responsive to any question, even whilst they were away in India, and was a joy to communicate with. We would certainly recommend this home as a great place to stay for families or friends looking to escape the City!

Beautiful location, well equipped and more generous in size than expected

  • 5 of 5

Our group of family and friends gathered for Thanksgiving. The kitchen was well equipped to handle all of our cooking needs, a side table in the living room contained all the games you could possibly play in a weekend, the basement play/game room was the perfect outlet for the kids (and even some adults) of our group, and the sleeping accommodations were even more accommodating than we anticipated (the loft area is much larger than the photos translate and there is an entire bedroom with a matteess on the floor in the basement with it's own adjacent bathroom that isnt photographed.)

The layout of the space is absolutely perfect for a combined group, with enough space to enjoy together, but still opportunity to have a quiet moment to oneself. The grounds were beautiful and we were fortunate enough to have beautiful weather that allowed us to spend time outdoors.

We were already talking about reaching out for a gathering in the summer with our same group. We would definitely come back.

Thank you

Wonderful Berkshire property

  • 5 of 5

This is a great find. Home is light and airy and very well designed. Large and very versatile kitchen with everything you might need to cook all the farm fresh produce you can buy nearby. Bedrooms are all very comfortable and the deck great to enjoy the views and fresh air.

We loved this home andv hope ee can return someday for another visit.
