Guestbook comments from the owner
What a beautiful setting. Even when it rained, we looked forward to that lovely babbling brook which ran under the house.

The home was built in 1973 by The Riley's. They custom designed it along with a noted architect. It was their dream for many years to move from Long Island to 'the country'. They bought 144 acres, built the dream house, and moved to the beautiful Berkshires with their six children. After all the kids moved on to their own lives the house was much too big for two people so it was split it half, hence we have a rental unit. Their is a magical feel to 'The Castle' on the hill. Maybe because of the river that runs underneath it or the serenity around it or the view from the large odd shaped windows...We call it the castle because when the younger children went to school that's what their friends called it.... 'oh you live in that white castle on the hill'. Now it is entrusted to the six children who recently renovated it for a rental income and keep half for their own vacation place. Everything about the land speaks of timelessness and a happy dream come true.

The Berkshires in rural, but not too, sophisticated in a Berkshire way and fun! It doesn't matter what you like to do for your vaction you will find it in the Berkshires...all year long.

The most unique benefit is the stream that runs under the family room, the architecture and the height and sound of the trees.

Castle in the Sky

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The home was clean and comfortable. The area was beautiful and we found plenty to do. We especially loved all the hiking opportunities and we enjoyed leisurely walks past the farms down the road. The few minor issues we had were promptly taken care of and the whole process of renting was a pleasure. We are looking forward to returning in the future to spend more time and highly recommend this property.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves at the "Castle". It was perfect for us and our two small dogs. The home is comfortable, sparkling clean, not overly cluttered and well-stocked with essentials. The land is beautifully maintained and so peaceful.

We have been coming to the Berkshires annually for many years. We are more familiar with the Lenox/Stockbridge areas so it was a treat to get to do some interesting things around Lanesboro/Pittsfield/Williamstown. There is always so much to do in the Berkshires no matter where you are.

We had the pleasure to meet Joanne (and her sister) in person. No matter what the issue is (and with us it had to do with the TV and computer, but that's because we are electronically challenged), she responds immediately and couldn't be more accommodating.

We hope to be able to return again next summer to this very special place.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
My mother and I stayed here and were very happy. The condo was very clean and the layout was great with bedrooms and bathrooms on opposite sides of the condo. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal. I loved having coffee in the morning at the kitchen table while i looked out the windows. Very peaceful and relaxing. Joanna is very nice to deal with and quite accommodating. I grew up in the Berkshires and highly recommend this property if you going for a visit.

The Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I along with our 4 kids recently stayed at the Contemporary Castle in the Sky and had a wonderful time. While visiting the Berkshires we went to Williamstown, North Adams, and Lee, the house was conveniently located. The house is nice and cozy with a fireplace in the living room that was stocked with wood and worked beautifully. I would like to come back in the summer as I can only imagine what the great view from the living room and deck. Thanks so much JoAnn

Gorgeous getaway

  • 4 of 5
Breathtaking views, spacious and welcoming. Creative design elements artfully integrateed with modern, bold touches. Exceptionally comfortable furniture throughout. Gorgeous artwork everywhere, with a layout designed for maximum privacy and comfort. Fabulous space to get away from it all, or entertain guests. Plenty to do in the area but the space is so peaceful you might not want to leave!
