Why Owner chose Monterey
We fell in love with Lake Garfield and the Berkshires. It's so easy to get to Moore Cottage from both New York and Boston. And Berkshire County is an amazingly rich area, historically, culturally and recreationally.
What makes this house unique
Moore Cottage is close to many cultural activities, including Jacob's Pillow, the Norman Rockwell Museum and Tanglewood. It's fifteen minutes from Great Barrington and Lee; 20-25 minutes from Stockbridge and Lenox, all of which offer fine (and ethnic) dining, interesting shops and boutiques and great opportunities for hiking (including access to the Appalachian Trail in Monterey and Tyringham), walking, boating and fishing.
