Enjoy this unique beautifully renovated attached cottages' hand hewn beams, reclaimed wide board walls along with modern amenities like downstairs in-floor radiant heat, modern yet period kitchen and bathrooms. Built together with the main house but still private, it sits on over 7 acres of clear land and is located on a quiet level street less than 2 miles from Jiminy Peak Resort. Relaxation and excitement are near to each other.
Take a book, a chair, and a drink out in the field to relax while the kids play in the sandbox, play set, or spacious backyard. Feeling active? Take a walk around the field, cross country ski, sled on nearby hills, or take a bike ride on the quiet street. Getting chilly?
Start a fire in the fire pit and make some s'mores and plan your next days events. Nearby you will find Ioka Valley Farm for kids activities and maple syrup, the museum in Pittsfield, Theater Festival, Clark Art, and Williams College in Williamstown, , concerts and spa's in Lenox, art at Mass MOCA in North Adams, Hancock Shaker Village over the mountain in Hancock, and many more cultural venues plus various State Parks and lakes for swimming, boating, fishing, wildlife watching and hiking.
Enjoy coming home from all this activity through the ground floor (no stairs) mudroom where there is plenty of room to kick off your shoes and hang up your coat. Next you will find the full bath with tiled floor and tiled full size tub/shower surround, beadboard wainscoting, and a piano bench for dressing. You can walk across the hall to a bedroom with queen bed and windows with a view of the stone wall and mountains beyond. For infants or small children a 'pack-n-play' is provided to use in this or any other room.
Exit this bedroom and on your left you will find the full size fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen overlooks the dining room via large pass through and the living room via oversized doorway and features a large refrigerator, soapstone sink, and unique countertops made from reclaimed wide wall boards. You will find plenty of room for you to have help preparing your meals.
The dining room has a large oak table, buffet, and a high chair for the little one. In the living room you can sit on the comfortable couches and enjoy the light coming in from the french doors and multiple windows or close the blinds and turn on the flat screen TV and watch your favorite show from the satalite or your DVD movie.
Up the steps you will find a bedroom on your left with two twin beds, and bedroom on your right with a queen bed and a toddler bed. At the top of the stairs and between the bedrooms is a bathroom and for some alone time you have a reading nook with books and a rocking chair.
Do you need anything you don't have? We live in the main house and will be glad to help you if you need anything from additional extra large pots, wood for the fire pit, to driving instructions.
See you soon!
