High Pocket Vacation Rental is located in picturesque Colrain, Massachusetts nestled on a knoll at the end of a secluded dirt road.
Our farmhouse is 160 years old with a new 4 stall timber frame barn, a separate game room, and a hot tub on 545 acres.
A myriad of trails for all abilities await your exploration on horseback, foot, or mountain bike.
There is plenty of good pasture . Veterinarians, farriers and feed stores are nearby.
If your idea of the perfect vacation includes your equine friend, High Pocket Vacation Rental is the place for you.
Horses are available for rent to guests only.
With your horse, or without, our area has plenty to interest you. Our private trails can be ridden, hiked, biked, and skied. You'll pass beaver ponds, enter lush forests and open meadows, and may chance upon some of our local wildlife. For those bringing their own horses we include a daily 2-hour guided trail ride. We also offer picnic rides.
Four season activities include fishing, swimming, hiking, biking, golfing, canoeing, rafting, and alpine and cross-country skiing.
We are not far from the stores, golf courses, and ski areas of Wilmington, VT and Mt. Snow. Nearby Shelburne Falls and Historic Deerfield feature quaint shops, antiques, and farm stands in season.
Mass MoCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) in North Adams, Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, and the Five College towns of Northampton and Amherst are just a short scenic drive away.
Many fine restaurants with a variety of pricing and cuisine are within 20 miles of the farm, as are live theater and movies.
High Pocket Vacation Rental has it all . . . country leisure a stones throw away from urban sophistication!!
Your hosts, the McKusick Family.
Your hosts, Sarah and Mark
We have lived in the area since 1980 and run a farm down the road where we raise goats and manage a small herd of horses. Our three daughters are recently now 'out of the nest' either in college or working. Mark is currently farming full time, spending any free time clearing trails and maintaining the old ones. Sarah is getting back into her photography, and trying her hand at travel writing whenever they get away on adventures, which happen annually.
Mark or Sarah purchased this farmhouse in 1998
'We live in Paradise' is a recent phrase coined by a local friend of ours. No matter where we travel, we always love coming home to these old hills covered in a blend of hardwood and pine forests, just out of the way of development and the clamour of too many people! We are surrounded by Nature and the wildlife that flourish here.
15 minutes from Shelburne Falls and Greenfield, Ma.
