Everything we could have hoped for!

We chose Perry's home to hold our tiny little wedding over a long weekend. For just us and four of our closest friends, this was the perfect winter destination. We caught over a foot and a half of fresh snow and held our ceremonies during the beginning of the blizzard in front of a huge rock on the slope down to and overlooking the lake; it was absolutely breathtaking. The house itself is well-equipped and terribly comfortable. The kitchen has everything and the living room is amazing; the big U-couch and huge square coffee table became the center of our stay. The fireplace is wonderful and there was plenty of wood. The beds and bathrooms are super nice. I know it lists only 3 bedrooms, but this house would easily accommodate 10 people as advertised. All-in-all, I can't say enough about the place. Also, Perry made himself very much available in advance of our stay. He provided heaps of information and some great recommendations, and always responded quickly to our questions. If you're considering this house, just pull the trigger; you're going to love it!

Lovely home on incredible land. Cozy, well equipped retreat surrounded by state land with myriad trails for hiking and running. A stunning pond outlined by grand old trees, beavers, deer, birds abound is set in the home's backyard, visible by most windows. So nice!

Relaxing retreat

We enjoyed such a blissful and relaxing weekend at this house in the Berkshires... There was more than enough of space for my husband and me, his cousin, another couple, and our dog, and the house had everything we needed on the first cold weekend in October — firewood, blankets, decks of cards, DVD's, plus all sorts of pots and pans (and even fresh chard from the garden!) for making stew. The location is incredible; directly behind the house is a huge pond with a walking trail all the way around it. Our dog has never been so happy to be anywhere, and wanted to do several laps around the pond every day. We also discovered a great running trail nearby (left out of the house, then a left on Savoy Road) along with other local hikes suggested by the helpful owners. An all-out perfect weekend retreat!

Lovely weekend away from the buzz

We had the most lovely time in a most wonderful spot of the work! The house is everything we needed and more. Beautiful location right near the lake which you can enjoy right when you wake up (at least that is your view in some bedrooms). The garden is lovely and we were allowed to harvest what was ripe (beet root leaves - yum). Plenty of space for all of us! The two bathrooms are accessible from two sides which is great when the house is full with people. It was so nice for us and our extended family to all sit around the dinner table, near the fireplace and later at the campfire... The house manager was very pleasant to deal with and gave us plenty of information on how to make the post of our stay: best lakes, best hikes, best local shopping etc. We would definitely love to come back!!

From early mills dotting the rural landscape in the 18th century, to the hydropower dams & factories of the 19th century, to the tap & die industry of the 20th century, Plainfield has been centered within the Berkshires, influenced by a unique role in regional, national & world history.

Perfect for family summer vacations, reunions and celebrations. This is a leaf peepers delight! Hiker's heaven! Skier's retreat! Many hiking, biking and mountain biking, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing trails abound.

Within Plainfield guests can go hiking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, watching wildlife, white water raft, zipline, admire the fall foliage, wild flowers & make picnics.

Our regional bounty presents exceptional culinary experiences throughout the seasons.

In Plainfield one can eat pancakes with real maple syrup when visiting the Massachusetts Maple Producers Association Sugarhouse, pick strawberries, or eat quality local organic farm fresh foods.
