Great Views, Great Space, Great Summer

This is a great summer house for a group of family or friends to relax, swim, cook, hike, and hang out. We've spent several summer months there with friends over the years and have loved the casual, unpretentious character of the place, which is private and peaceful with a deck, fields, woods and a stream to explore. Our (city) kids have loved the unlimited outdoors, along with the gazebo, the couch-swing in the main room and the recently added windowed cupola. The barn is spacious and homey with idyllic open views of the surrounding mountains, visible from inside and out. The owners are reasonable and responsive. We also like the fact that there are so many outdoor and cultural activities in the areas. We go to Tanglewood often for music on the lawn and also to the Clark Museum in Williamstown. Lenox, Williamstown, Stockbridge, and Pittsfield, MA are all within 20-45 minutes, with theater, restaurants museums as well as waterskiing, hiking, and a bird sanctuary (Lenox). There are movies at the mall in Lanesboro (20 minutes) and we highly recommend Jiminy Peak, which has an alpine slide for thrills, as well as miniature golf, trampolines, and a lot of other activities for kids (of any age...) Bottom line: This place offers beauty, privacy, quiet and space at a reasonable price, with the action of the Berkshires close by.
