A Warm, Inviting Home: There are countless ways to relax in this house. It's filled with books and music--not only an extensive collection of CDs, but also a Mason & Hamlin grand piano. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes and silverware and begs you to cook in it, and the fireplace warms the winter months (in addition to an oil-burning heating system). Sun lovers will want to lie in the hammock on the deck. And for those times when you must be inside, there's a wireless broadband Internet connection. In the Center of Everything: Distance to Kripalu: 2.5 miles; To Bousquet Ski Area: 8.8 miles; To Butternut: 10.8 miles; To Tanglewood: 3.1 miles; To Stockbridge Bowl Town Beach: .8 miles. Dogs are welcome. The calendar shows availability and is kept up to date.
Berkshire Beaver Lodge: Come springtime, vibrant orange Baltimore Orioles nest in the willows. A Great Blue Heron returns to the adjacent beaver pond year after year. More than 75 bird species have been spotted on the property, not to mention the occasional snapping turtle. Thanks to a thriving wetland ecosystem, an abundance of frogs and bats--natural predators of the mosquito--keep the pest problem down. The viewing platform for all this wildlife is the southern facing back deck, which also provides a front-row seat for the fall color display on the mountain out back.
