We are an old local family that had to move away for work, but kept a space here for family gatherings. parties and escapes. We love to share our home with repeat guests, and hope you will make your own warm memories here.

We bought the house when our 3 now adult children were little. We loved the warmth and simplicity of the log cabin, but the space and light of the five bedroom design clinched it, and the separate family room on lower level is a kid haven. That, and the great room, which really fosters hanging out and conversation, in any season, any time of day. Some day, we will retire here, but until then, we like the thought of nice people using our home to escape, re-connect, sink in. Its a comfortable house.

One feels like one is far away, but if you forgot to get milk, it is literally five minutes to Price Chopper.

There is utter privacy on the back deck; you can do yoga there, or watch the stars. The front deck is big enough to seat twenty for dinner, and you feel like you are in a tree house. There are raspberries in summer, and an infant sized sledding hill in the winter. Or drive around the corner, and Ski Butternut, the most family friendly ski resort in the northeast. If you bring a kayak, it is five minutes to the ramp on Lake Buel. If you hike, try the AT, or Bear Mountain State Forest, or East Mountain State Forest , which our property abuts.

Autumn in the Berkshires is golden, with few crowds, and all crisp New England treats. Farmer's markets abound, but you don't have to cook, because Great Barrington is foodie paradise. Hike or just wander. In Fall, Lenox has the 'Apple Squeeze', the Botanical Garden has the Harvest Festival.

Winter is silver and beautiful, the town is nestled in white mountains, and there are happy skiers in every fireplace-warmed restaurant and bar. Stockbridge recreates Norman Rockwell's Main Street in December. Go to Cranwell for X-Country and the indoor pool at the spa.

Spring in the Berkshires brings the Berkshire International Film Festival. Welcome to Vail without the pretension.

And Summer is birdsong and other music echoing off the lakes. Tanglewood Music Festival, Aston Magna, and dance at Jacobs Pillow. Try the Berkshire Fringe Festival for something new. Do not miss an afternoon on the Red Lion's porch with a drink. The sunset from the Kemble Inn in Lenox has the most romantic view ever. For margaritas any time of year, Mexican restaurant Xicotencatl is five minutes away, and the margaritas are fresh and real. The cabin is located between two giant state parks. We are not only on a national walking trail, but on a wild path for wild turkeys, hawks, porcupines,, raccoons and even the occasional bobcat. We've seen it all from the deck. Rainy days can mean going out to a movie in town, a museum or restaurant, or staying in, surfing the web or watching a favorite film on surround sound TV. Cook up all the cool food you bought at Guidos in the spacious open kitchen. Wait for the pot to boil by the big fireplace, or snuggle in the master bedroom with its own gas woodstove fire. All the furniture is overstuffed, all the mattresses firm. This cabin is a good place to rest after a busy day, and a good place in which to to just stay home.
