A Beautiful House in a Beautiful Area

We just returned form our week long stay at "August Moon" in Sheffield and we wish we could turn right around and go back!! What a wonderful, magical place it is. The area is incredible. The house is situated a short walk away from beautiful hiking trails. We took our-five-year-old daughter on several hikes through the woods to a beautiful waterfall, and encountered such wonderful flora and fauna (deer, peepers, butterflies, may flowers, tree trunks bitten by beavers). And there is even an incredible farm to table restaurant a two minute walk from the house that rivals some of the best restaurants in NYC! A short drive brought us to antiquing in Sheffield, markets in Great Barrington (Rubiner's cheese market was our favorite) and restaurants, markets, concerts, theater, dance performances, historical sites, a Shaker village, swimming holes, in short, every thing we could have wanted in a beautiful, serene setting. And if the area isn't enticing enough, the house alone is worth the trip. The owners have thought of everything. The house is beautiful and large but feels homey and cozy. FIre places or stoves in every corner, comfy sofas and chairs in all the rooms. The bedding is divine, and we slept so comfortably and warm! The kitchen has everything one could possibly want to cook and bake with. The grounds are exquisite, with a tennis court, a lush lawn and a beautiful garden, and plenty of outdoor seating to lounge on in the sun or in the shade. We could not have been happier there, and we are already planning our next escape to beautiful August moon in Sheffield!!
