Call now for great summer rates! Come and enjoy our beautiful mountain retreat - A home for every season. This charming home away from home is a wonderful place for family, friends and romance. Only 2 minutes from Jiminy Peak!! Book now

With over 2200 square feet, this new country home has plenty of space for everyone yet a very cozy feel. Each one of the 3 large bedrooms has walk-in closets and beautiful new funishings. The master suite has a king size bed and matching furniture with a brand-new 32' Samsung LCD HDTV. The attached master bathroom has a huge Jacuzzi tub for two. Step out onto the balcony from the living room for a magnificent open view of the mountains. Enjoy a movie on your 46' Sony HDTV while enjoying the heat from the wood-burning stove. The enclosed basement can be used as a playroom or den or as a closed-off 4th bedroom with a couch that opens up into a queen sized bed. Explore the 16 acres of trails on the property and hike your way to the golf course in the back. If you have kids, there are swings and slides on the property for their enjoyment. There's also an attached 2 car garage so that you can come directly into the warm house after a long day of skiing.

And don't forget that just 2 miles down the road is Jiminy Peak - offering skiing and snowboarding day and night. We are located about 25 minutes from Tanglewood. Or drive ten minutes down the road to the Clark Museum in Williamstown and enjoy some Monet and Renoir. Or fifteen minutes down the other direction to the city of Pittsfield for some wonderful restaurants and shops- as well as a beautiful lake for swimming. And don't forget that we are only 2 hours and 45 minutes from NYC.

About Debbie

An avid hiker and biker, I love the outdoors. I've also been involved in the real estate market for about 20 years in New York City. I'm a single mom and a businesswoman.

Debbie purchased this house in 2009

Why Debbie chose Berkshires

I've always loved the Berkshires. Great hiking, biking, skiing....the people are so friendly in this area. When I saw this property, I fell in love with the large bedrooms and walk-in closets. I couldn't believe the size compared to all the other houses I had seen. And the views were amazing...! It's only a short distance from Jiminy Peak, where my daughter takes ski lessons from locals who grew up in the mountains and a short distance from all the culture and activities...Come enjoy my home!

What makes this house unique

The house is very large and comfortable- as indicated by prior renters. We are so close to everything in the Berkshires- Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Company, Jiminy Peak, Williamstown museums, Mount Greylock for hiking, Lakes for boating and fishing....A great place to come and relax and enjoy everything that the Berkshires has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Deborah. I meant to send you a note on Monday, but the week slipped away. We had a great time and the house was perfect. Thanks so much.

comfortable home away from home; ideal location for Greylock

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this rental. The house was comfortable and well-equipped, the owner responded to our questions promptly, and the location was perfect for us since it's only eight minutes away from the Mt. Greylock Visitor's Center. You do have to look carefully for the driveway--it can be a little hard to spot--but GPS will get you there.

All in all, a very pleasant stay!

tucked away cabin

  • 5 of 5

this house exceeded our expectations. it is conveniently located near main attractions, yet tucked away in its own private lot. the house was very clean and spacious. we really enjoyed sitting out on the decks and star gazing at the end of the night. would definitely recommend and stay there again.

Comfortable Home Close to Jiminy Peak

  • 5 of 5

We were two families that comfortably shared this home over MLK weekend. We had 4 adults and 5 children and a dog that the owner graciously let us bring with us and there was plenty of room still. We didn't even use the large bonus room on the first floor. The kitchen had everything we needed and we were able to cook some great meals at the house. Just a few miles down the road from Jiminy but definitely close enough that we were able to be on the mountain in minutes.

Exactly as advertised! Great time!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this terrific Lanesboro house twice last summer, while performing at Tanglewood. It was super-clean and well-appointed with everything you'd want, from TV to Ipod Dock to kitchen supplies. Great for kids -- one of the bedrooms has bunk beds -- but the lower bunk is quite large and fine for a single adult. Deb, the owner, was very responsive and very nice about pets, etc. Lovely in summer, I'm sure it would be ideal for a ski house as well. Best of all, arrangements were flexible and reasonably priced! Thanks, Deb, and I hope to be back!

We had a wonderful stay this summer in this spacious, comfortable, kid-friendly home. Well-located in the Berkshire area, where we found an endless number of things to do and time to relax.
