Overview

Williamstown Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

NEW UPGRADE COMING -- Walking ramp to front door. ***Summer price break: 2 weeks, $1,600: FALL SPECIAL --Sept-Oct -- $800/week***Feel like stepping out your field- and- forest-surrounded front door and going for a walk down a quiet country road, hearing only the low mooing of nearby Holsteins? Or perhaps each morning embarking on an invigorating hike up one of the many scenic trails circling the state of Massachusetts’ highest peak?

If these simple pleasures seem to beckon like an escape from the frenetic pace of modern life, then a stay at this little lush, green oasis is perfect for you. But that doesn’t mean isolated!

Newly upgraded Country Bungalow offers a simple comfortable retreat with treat-your-- toes silk carpet, mid-century modern antique ambience, the latest conveniences such as HD TV and Internet access so you can finish that book, script or thesis. The living room also has a queen-sized futon, for extra seating and an overnight accommodation for extra guests.

Plus, Country Bungalow provides the rare gift of a secluded location in Williamstown, where composing music won’t bother the neighbors, and capturing a landscape filled with iconic black and white dairy cows grazing against a verdant hillside backdrop for your next plein air masterpiece is a easy as setting up your easel in the backyard. You’re only interruption may be the distraction of a scurrying chipmunk or the fluttering wings a blue bird or cedar waxwing pecking at the garden. And what could be more soothing, than the soft sounds of a gurgling brook that meanders along the edge of the property, ebbing and flowing with the rain flow.

NEWLY ADDED -- to please the busy professional, parent or spouse needing a little alone time for work or play -- is a sitting room, with amazing views through the French doors, easy access to the backyard as well as the second bathroom -- which is located on the bottom level.

A computer desk has recently been added to this area as well as a restored countertop with single-serve coffee maker extra boost is needed to finish that report or manuscript. A small TV with built-in DVD player is also new and will keep the little ones need entertained with a movie, while Dad is watch the PGA on TV.

And it should be noted that watching the black and white calves grow (because the farmer only raises a few dairy calves each season), can be enjoyed primarily for their aesthetic beauty as iconic parts of the landscape as the barn is about a half mile away from the house.

The homeowner lives nearby, so any issues can easily be addressed. And while Country Bungalow is remote, its location is easily reached off the main roads and most of the street paved for ease of access.

Williamstown, which is home to the celebrated Clark Art Institute and esteemed Williams College (summer home of the prestigious Williamstown Theatre Festival), offers a mix of quaint cafes, trendy restaurants and shops, a modern library and excellent golfing. All these pleasures are only about three miles away – perfect for a leisurely bike ride into town. Or on the way to town, picnic at a park that is alongside a nearby babbling brook.

The Berkshires offer visitors a wealth of cultural and recreational activities, from hiking, biking, golfing and boating to fishing. Next-door city North Adams is home of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), the Western Gateway Heritage State Park with its a unique museum about the construction of the Hoosac Tunnel, the geologic wonder, the all-marble Natural Bridge, and a road to drive to the top of Mt. Greylock -- the state’s highest peak that has historic Bascom Lodge for dining and the Veterans Memorial Tower for those with constitutions strong enough to climb to the top of it -- that is newly paved.

Competitive cyclists can get an excellent workout heading south to Pittsfield on Route 7, but those with children may decide to load the bikes into the car and head south on Route 8 from the Tunnel City to the quaint town of Adams. Here, breakfast at the Daily Grind, and shop at Lynda’s Antique Clothing Loft before heading for a safe scenic trek on the bike trail called the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail, which connects Adams to the end of the trail in Lanesborough, MA, located at the Berkshire Mall. Pittsfield, the county seat, is home to the Colonial Theatre, Barrington Stage, Berkshire Museum, Beacon Cinema, Hancock Shaker Village and trendy restaurants. Other nearby Berkshire summer cultural hot spots, many open all year include; Norman Rockwell Museum, Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theatre Festival (now teamed with the Colonial Theatre), Berkshire Botanical Gardens, Chesterwood, Kripalu and more.

Besides, Williams College, Country Bungalow is conveniently located near Mass. College of Liberal Arts, Berkshire Community, Bard of Simon's Rock, Buxton, as well as Bennington College and Southern Vermont College in Bennington, VT. From Williamstown, touring the Green Mountain State’s bucolic countryside and shopping outlets in Manchester are easy.

So pack your hiking gear, bikes (or use ours, we provide 2) and of course camera, because when you book your stay at Country Bungalow, besides picturesque cows you’re likely to snap shots of deer, gliding hawks or eagles, flocks of turkeys, moose and coyotes from the comfort of your chaise lounge.

We look forward to seeing you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Carl, Rosemary and Fran,



This was a lovely home base for Williams College graduation and a few days of relaxing afterward.

We saw mother deer with fawn, foxes, and a bear on a hike up Mount Greylock!

Also enjoyed the cows and calf!

Best wishes,
Jun 2014

Cozy, clean, nice.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Country Bungalow for our son's orientation at MCLA in North Adams. The house was cozy and clean, with everything we needed, plus cows, which enchanted the kids. Carl was extremely accommodating. I only wish we'd been able to stay more than two nights! Be aware that cellphone reception is spotty at best, but the wifi worked perfectly. The tradeoff for poor cell service? You're in the gorgeous Berkshire Mountains at the foot of Mount Greylock. So lovely, and a wonderful getaway.

Nice Getaway House and Spacious Property

  • 5 of 5
We booked this house for our trip to attend the Williams College reunion and it worked out really well. A very nice property – close enough to town, yet far enough away to feel you're in the Berkshires. The house has a huge backyard with garden views as well as a neighboring cow pasture.

A couple of additional details:
• 2 Full Beds (Bedrooms) and 1 Futon Couch (Living Room)
• 2 Full Bathrooms
• Linens Included, but not Body Wash or Shampoo
• Full Kitchen Utensils

Overall, I would recommend the house for a Williamstown getaway and the owners provided great customer service (they found and returned a car key I left there)!

Restful Place Just as Advertised

  • 5 of 5
I'll keep this short. Williamstown is a lovely place and this rental is a great base of operations. All the features advertised are in good and workable condition, including a full kitchen, basement laundry, central heating and wifi. If you need a luxury hotel room, obviously this is not what you want. Howeer, we have two small kids, and wanted to get to know the area at our own pace. This place worked perfectly for us.

Notes:
Love black and white Holstein cows? Property abuts rolling pastureland at the base of Mt. Greylock, where the owner raises a few cows from calves to adulthood each spring. A trailhead to Mt. Greylock is a short walk away -- at other end of the road guests can frolic in the cool waters of the Green River.
