ADORABLE BERKSHIRE COTTAGE

Pittsfield House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

So close and yet so far from home...this little piece of paradise is only 2 1/2 hours from NYC and Boston!

No matter what season of the year it is, this cute cottage is about as comfortable and quaint as you can get! You will really feel like you have escaped to the country in this home with its' great views of Lake Pontoosuc and the rolling Berkshire hills.

This house is so close to Jiminy Peak Ski Resort, only a 10 minute drive! Jiminy is great for families; from beginners to more advanced, there's something for everyone. This mountain resort has activities and fun for the family in all seasons! There's skiing, mountain bike riding, hiking and lots of summer fun for all! It's also only a short drive to lower Vermont, if you are looking for more of a skiing/boarding challenge. The lake down the hill freezes in the winter and is perfect for ice fishing, snowmobiling (available for rent), cross country skiing or just walking on water! Pittsfield also has a local ski area which offers daily and night tubing which is fun for everyone!

In the summer, Lake Pontussuc has swimming, fishing and boat access as well. Additionally, there are other lakes within the town that offer beach access and park like features. The Mall and movies are right around the corner as well. There are public golf courses nearby and many hiking trails throughout the Berkshire's to explore.

It is perfect for couples and families and can even squeeze in a few extra visitors as well! It is very private and set on a large piece of property down a country road. You will truly enjoy every relaxing moment you spend in this home away from home!

Whether it's the great outdoors that's calling your name, or if the theater is more your style, there is something for everyone in this vacation area. There are fabulous restaurants and wonderful shopping throughout the Berkshire area, and of course the cultural world is prevalent everywhere,especially throughout the summer months, so come out and explore what the BERKS has to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Betsey,

We so enjoyed your Pittsfield cottage--I especially LOVED the screened in porch.

Our daughter Jennifer had the upstairs "suite" to practice her oboe

and make reeds.

My husband Jim thought having tivo was great! Anyway, thanks for

having it so well stocked.

The owner was wonderful and very helpful. We loved staying at the cottage, and especially enjoyed our meals on the screened in porch! The cottage was well located as we made trips to Lenox and Stockbridge, then to sights north at the Winslow Homer exhibit and MassMoca. Thanks for such an enjoyable vacation!

Second Time Still the Charm

  • 5 of 5
Our first stay at 20 Exeter Avenue last summer was great, so we booked another stay this one. Our experience was equally satisfying. The cottage is just the right size and has all of the amenities a couple or family would need for their stay. Located just off Route 7, the cottage is centrally located to the area's attractions and necessities. Breakfasts (and lunches) on the back screened patio were a fantastic way kick off the day. Overall, we loved our visits and hope to return next year.

One more comment: The owners have been great to work with and are most accommodating and trusting.

Wonderful week in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the cottage the week of the 4th of July. I found the location and view to be a great peaceful way to start and end my day. I came close to canceling events in town just to stay there and enjoy the view of the lake from the deck. The owners were very helpful and had ample information about their home and the surrounding area.

Convenient and Charming

  • 5 of 5
This home was a great vacation spot centrally located in the Berkshires. Convenient to shopping, grocery stores, museums, skiing, and even a beautiful lake it was a great spot to stay to enjoy all the activities in the area. The home was extremely clean and well maintained. There were lots of nice amenities around from plenty of movies, books and board games to a well equipped kitchen. It was a nice place for a weekend getaway and we hope to come back in the future for a longer stay.
