Tyringham Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps
Airy modern guesthouse: open kitchen/living room + sunroom & private deck on 14 hillside acres. Cathedral ceilings with skylights and an open-plan kitchen/livingroom lend this guesthouse an airy, contemporary feeling. Fully equipped, stylish and comfortably furnished with a queen-sized bed plus a sofa bed in the sunroom to accommodate two to four people (two couples or a couple with two kids). Excellent cell phone reception - Verizon (4G), ATT (4G), Sprint, and T-Mobile. Flat-screen TV with basic cable and DVD player. Stereo with CD player. Radio with iPhone docking station.
A private sanctuary set on a verdant hillside away from it all, yet close to the best the Berkshire region has to offer: Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Barrington Stage Company, and plentiful dining, shopping, and recreational options. Hike on property or nearby trails. Kayak on Goose Pond.
Guests have use of their own washer & dryer and outdoor grill. Garage parking is available. Guests have access to on-property trails.
We welcome children though we must note that the house is not child-proofed - there is a ladder to a loft (off-limits) that may be tempting to little ones, and a stairway that leads up to the house that has no barrier and could present a hazard. There's also a wrought-iron railing that a small child could either get stuck in or fall through. If these features pose a safety risk for your child, along with sharp-cornered coffee tables and uncovered electrical outlets, you might want to consider other vacation options.
Tyringham is the best-kept secret in the Berkshires, home to musicians such as Yo-Yo Ma, artists, writers, farmers, and many preserved spaces perfect for hikers. A 'Hinterland Settlement' that's one of the oldest towns in the Berkshires, it's near all the cultural and culinary attractions of the Berkshires but tucked away in a peaceful milieu. Goose Pond, perfect for canoes and kayaks, is just down the road from the guesthouse; access to the Appalachian Trail is a five-minute drive. Other nearby places to explore include Tyringham Cobble, Ashintully Gardens, and McLennan Reservation, with gentle waterfalls and a mountaintop pond.
The property is less than ten minutes from exit #2 (Lee) off Route 90, the Massachusetts turnpike. Two hours from Boston, 2.5 hours from NYC, and an hour away from both the Hartford and Albany airports.
Well behaved dogs are allowed with prior approval.
