About Jay

We reside locally - three miles from the property. We couldn't resist this beautiful property when it came to market. It's a cute house in a gorgeous spot. Quiet and private amid open meadows.

Jay purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Jay chose Berkshires

Swamp House is surrounded with some of the last open preserved farmland left in Richmond. In our opinion it's located in the most beautiful spot, in a really beautiful place.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Peace and quiet, privacy, amazing views, endless places to walk and explore, bike, run and sing. With friendly cows as daily visitors (depending on the mood of the cows, but you can bribe them with apples).

Comforts of home tucked into a stunning landscape.

My family and I gave this property 5 stars. It was clean and exactly as expected. We were comfortable, cozy, and had everything we needed for our time away. The property was perfect for a family soccer game and exploring open fields and woods out back. We even got to feed the cow next door crab apples! We used the fireplace each evening and enjoyed the veggies from the garden outside and fresh apples! Jay, the owner, made the whole rental experience so smooth and answered all of our questions super fast and shared information about local spots for hiking, biking, and exploring. Thank you! :)

Wonderful stay.

This farmhouse is very cozy and comfortable, very clean and well maintained and situated in a beautiful part of the Berkshires. Our children loved exploring the surrounding meadows and pond. The owner Jay was really great to deal with. We look forward to returning!
