Beautiful chalet

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend, two dogs and I loved this apartment! We loved the outdoor deck and location, right at the base of the Berkshire East Mountain Resort. Great size space, and well kept. The only down side is the beds are full size and we had a hard time sharing a room, so had to spread out a little. Not a huge deal, we will gladly return! The kitchen has all you need, and we loved waking up to go out and drink our coffees on the deck. We discovered the beautiful flower bridge in Shelburne Falls, about 15 min away. We drove to Lenox for the botanical gardens, and specialty chocolate cafe. The drive was beautiful. It was nice to be off the grid for a bit. Great find for the price! Thank you Ben.

It was ok

  • 3 of 5

First off the location is ideal if you are planning on doing anything at the Berkshire East Ski Resort. Nice little apartment but very basic amenities. It is great if you want to get off the grid without sleeping in a tent. There is little to no cell coverage but they do offer a house phone. The wifi was glorified dial up that wasn't able to stream the provided Roku/Netflix. I would recommend bringing a book, puzzles, dvds for entertainment. Also if you have trouble with stairs it is good to know that the only bathroom is upstairs with the bedrooms on the main level. Overall it wasn't amazing but wasn't bad.

Perfect Weekend Spot

  • 5 of 5

2 friends and I decided to come up here to get out of the city and do some hiking. Ben truly made this place feel like a home to us for the weekend. The home is tucked away from the road and private. Being surrounded by the trees but then also being so close to the Berkshire East Resort for some hiking was more than we could have asked for!

From the bedrooms, full kitchen, and living area - it was a great way to relax and rest after a full day of hiking and exploring. There were food menus, local guides, attraction pamphlets, really anything you needed to make your trip that much more memorable .

From the first night, we were saying how we would do this again next year in a heart beat! This is truly a gem in Charlemont. I cannot recommend this Chalet highly enough and cannot give Ben enough thanks for opening up this apartment to us for the weekend!

Shared but private chalet in the woods near to a stream. Berkshire East ski/activity area is literally around the corner. Do the amazing zip lines!! Make sure the tv is activated before you arrive!
