A Wisconsin native, and Massage therapist for 19 years, I am enjoying the friendly and welcoming attitude of Wiliamstown and the Berkshires. My husband and 2 daughters all work, study and play in the Berkshires. We most especially love the theatre and culture that is available. The Clark Art has family days, the Williamstown Theatre Festival is always offering free theatre and childrens events as well as Broadway bound performances. Summer and Winter fun at Jiminey Peak, and unbelievable shopping just north at Manchester Vermont make this a perfect town to raise your kids. I am on the Board of the Williamstown Community Chest, a winner of the Sam Walton Emerging Entrepreneur award for women, and most recently a winner of the Berkshire Visitor Bureau's marketing award. This is one of the most beautiful area's in the country and we all benefit from the massive influence of Williams College, never a weekend goes by where there isn't some festival, activity or hike you can enjoy. A place where there is a smile for everyone and a hot cup of coffee around the corner, Williamstown is wonderful to kick up your feet and soak in the good life.
This apartment has a perfect storm of vacation desires. We knew so many artists, actors from NYC who needed lodging during the Williamstown Theatre Festival, once the whole building that my business was in became available, I couldn't resist buying it. Located with walking distance of all the many cultural institutions, festivals, and events... especially all Williams College events and activities. The exceptionally lush Taconic Golf Course is 2 blocks away, and 3 different restaurants all within a 10 minute walk. The apartment itself has had many celebrities, writers, and skiing enthusiasts stay, over and over again. The apartments charm, and location on the Green River seal the deal on this ideal vacation experience.
The upstairs apartment creates a hideaway like experience with river behind and small town charm in front. A unique location so close to town, so quiet and welcoming, and yet affordable and private.
