This is a delightfully private country Cape on one of the most beautiful mountain roads in the Berkshires. You’d never imagine you’re 3 minutes from the town of Monterey, with its old-fashioned General Store, and just 10 minutes to the local dining and shopping hub of Great Barrington.
With a 3-season screened porch, outdoor shower, wood stove, and close access to great hiking and swimming in your choice of pristine lakes - you will not want to miss out! For winter sports fans, there are cross-country ski trails galore, and three downhill slopes - Ski Butternut, Otis Ridge, and Catamount - all within easy reach.
This sweet home has 3 bedrooms: a ground floor master with king-sized bed and its own fireplace, and two guest bedrooms upstairs: one with a queen bed and the other with full bed. Upstairs also has a newly-renovated full bathroom.
The kitchen is fully equipped to make beautiful meals, and the adjacent dining room has places for 6. A spacious sun room with a wood stove is the perfect spot for your morning coffee.
The setting is quiet, country, woodlands. Take a walk on this lovely road or venture out to hiking trails right across the way. Family-friendly swimming on the beach at Lake Garfield and boating ponds are within three miles. Easy drive to Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, theatres, the cinema, and fabulous restaurants. Dog friendly.

My renters really enjoy the outdoor shower, the serene setting, the fireplace in the master and the firepit!
My husband and I stayed at the Crane House for two weeks in late August. We loved being so close to all that we love about the Berkshires, Tanglewood, Stockbridge, Lenox, Great Barrington and Williamstown and the Theatre Festival is only about a 40 minute drive. The house is set in the woods on a mountain and is a peaceful getaway. The home is comfortable with a fireplace, outdoor fire pit and hot water outdoor shower that was a favorite. Garfield Lake is just a short two mile drive and beyond that is the charming Monterey Country Store. Claudia was very accommodating and the home was clean and very comfortable. Probably one of the only places in Monterey with dependable wifi and cell service. We would stay there again.
