A cozy modern log cabin nestled in the hills of the Berkshires in a large wooded area with landscaped yard and fishpond.
The house is a newly built two floor log cabin with all the comforts of home. Inside is a full service kitchen and a great-room with dining and lounging spaces. You can relax and enjoy a full entertainment center with furnished recorded music and movies.
Bedrooms and baths are on both the 1st and 2nd floors. There is a large wood burning fireplace with plenty of firewood. Outside you can enjoy the sounds of the Green River, which is just off the large deck that hosts a chimenia, to take of the chill of the evening and/or morning, and a complete charcoal BBQ including charcoal.
