We are devoted Berkshire Hills lovers, and have been coming to this area for over 30 years. The landscape, the cultural activities and the tranquility are a great pull for us to relax and enjoy socializing.

The Owner purchased this house in 1987

Monterey is a special hamlet, very rural and pristine. Two lakes are clean and beckoning in the summer. Butternut, a beautifully groomed ski mountain, is only six miles away for family fun in the winter. Fall is amazing with the foliage. The house, on four acres, is a beautiful contemporary home that brings the outdoors in and makes relaxing easy!

The wooded lot, the skylights, the antique furnishings, the ease of living make this house perfect for a vacation.

High speed internet enables you to stay in touch if need be. The spiral staircase, the propane stove all add charm.

And the quiet cannot be beat!

AMAZING SKI SEASON EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have now rented this home during the ski season for 3 years. Before that, my in-laws rented here for 20+ years in the winter. Its convenience to several ski mountains, fully equipped kitchen, high speed internet, and cable TV make it an incredible place to visit every weekend over the winter. The owners are wonderful, loving and helpful whenever needed. They keep the house in excellent shape, and on the very rare occassion that we do encounter a problem, they are accommodating and very quick to respond. I highly recommend this house for any time of year, and can't wait to return for next ski season!

WONDERFUL TWO WEEKS AT THIS SPACIOUS, COMFORTABLE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Tucked away on a woodsy road bordering Beartown State Forest, this house provides a great base to enjoy and explore all that the Berkshires have to offer. For us that included visits to Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Company, Jacob's Pillow, and The Mount (Edith Wharton's estate) as well as leisurely afternoons walking around Great Barrington and Lenox. The house's three bedrooms have comfortable beds, lovely views, and ample closet space. When we invited friends for a few nights, the layout worked well, as there is a full bathroom on each floor and good visual privacy. Furnishings are tasteful and unfussy. The cushy sofa in the living room was big enough for all of us to converse easily while gazing into the woods through the floor-to-ceiling sliders, which are nice on rainy days, too. We felt close to nature here; one morning a mama bear lumbered by a slider not far from the table where we sat sipping coffee. The owners stocked the house with all the equipment and supplies we needed to prepare good meals and live in comfort. Everything was clean and in good working order. Fans in each room made the inside air tolerable even on hot, sticky days, and it always cooled off enough at night for comfortable sleeping. In addition to leaving us stacks of brochures about local attractions, the owners went out of their way to help us navigate the area and enjoy less touristy activities, including trips to nearby dog-friendly parks and trails as well as the lovely lakeside beach (no dogs allowed) a short drive away. Don't miss the goat farm on the road to New Marlborough! For us city slickers, it took awhile to get used to planning ahead for grocery shopping; it's a ten-mile drive to the nearest supermarket. However, there is a cute General Store close by in Monterey where you can pick up a few basics as well as gourmet specialties -- or sit outside by the stream and enjoy a sandwich.

IDEAL SUMMER VACATION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our 3 week stay in this woodsy area of Massachusetts in the summer of 2012. The owners were welcoming, responsive and always helpful. The house is comfortable and well-equipped. It is located close to Gt. Barrington and a reasonable driving distance from other favorite cultural destinations in the area. Wi-fi had recently been installed and worked perfectly. We recommend seeing the Bidwell House Museum nearby and our grandsons enjoyed a trip to the goat farm and the lake. A great place to stay!

The house is very well stocked with paper goods, pots, pans, glasses, etc. The location is wonderful for peace and quiet and only 2 miles from the public beach. Lee, Gt. Barrington and Lenox have wonderful restaurants. The owners are very responsive to any need. We had one of our best vacations.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
Definitely a winner in every way, lovely setting among garden and trees on a shaded quiet road in the non-touristy part of the Berkshires, with easy access for shopping, restaurants, etc, as well as walking and hiking trails. House is well-designed and beautifully decorated, well-stocked for all culinary, entertainment, and personal needs (especially lovely and spacious, well-lit bedrooms and high-ceilinged living-community-sitting room). Owners were quite helpful, gracious, and accomodating thru the entire process of rental and moving in for our close to 2 week stay. Ease of driving to all parts of the Berkshires. Photos do give this rental full justice, Only drawback; the circular stairway should be considered in theassignment of bedrooms.

A GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a really wonderful week at your home in Monterey. The house was comfortable and spacious - we could spread out, yet we were warm and cozy when it got cold and when it rained, it was a perfect excuse to stay in, read and drink tea. I wrote every morning in the master bedroom with the lovely early sun streaming onto your "rustic" desk. Working on my third novel.
We'd love to return to Monterey and stay in your home on another trip. Thank you for your hospitality and your warm welcome. It was so appreciated!

and parks, as well as a restored home from the 1700s, Bidwell House. Lenox, home of Tanglewood, and Stockbridge are 15 minutes away. Butternut for skiing is six miles away. Monterey is home to many community activities, including Lake Fest and the annual Steak Roast. It is also the home of Gould Farm, a therapeutic community that is over 100 years old, with a wonderful Roadside Store (breakfast/lunch) and a bakery.
