Originally from Boston, I have lived in NYC, London, Paris and Florence. I love to travel - but I have been based in Williamstown for the past 20 years. In addition to travel, I love yoga, cycling, hiking, skiing, and sailing. If I'm not here, I'm probably off doing one of those things!
The Berkshires offer a unique combination of natural beauty and cultural sophistication. I hope that my home, furnishings, and property mirror this! I am delighted to share my comfortable home with fellow travelers who will enjoy the eclectic furnishings from my travels and treat the house as if it were their own. Nothing is more delightful than to enjoy an outing at Clark or a hike up the Pine Cobble trail on a hot summer day, and to return to the house for a dip in the pool and a barbecue on the patio!

Our family - 5 adults, an 8 year old and a 2 year old - had a lovely week's vacation staying in this home. The house and yard are spacious, and gracious. The pool, with diving board, chairs and umbrella, and float devices, was very nice. The large flat lawn was great for bocce and for kicking around a soccer ball. The patio was also spacious, well equipped, and attractive. The huge kitchen with dining area - and even a second sink - worked wonderfully for us, as did the general layout of the house. Its location felt rural but was close to town and much else - the Clark Institiute, MassMoCA, Hancock Shaker Village; several nature preserves for walking, and hiking areas as well. All this less than 3 hours from NYC and Boston. We were very happy with our choice of this house and this area.
My husband and I, and three other couples, stayed at this beautiful, welcoming house for four days in June 2015. The house is even more spacious than it appears in photos, and is artistically and comfortably decorated with interesting artifacts from the owner's trips. There are many sitting rooms to settle in for a good read or conversation, but our favorite spot was the big farm table in the spacious kitchen to catch up with one another over coffee and tea in the morning. The front porch with hanging flower baskets was our spot for early evening cocktails, and the back patio by the pool was our spot for late night conversations over a dram of whiskey after returning from activities at the college. The whole experience was comfortable and civilized, with the lovely murmurings of the river across the road to lull one to sleep at night. This house was a gracious backdrop to a fun and relaxing reunion with friends. All eight of us want to return again, and other friends are signing up to join us on a waiting list, having heard what a lovely time we had.
We stayed in this property for a week preparing for our daughters wedding and it was truly amazing - beautiful, welcoming, comfortable and great for socializing and entertaining. The grounds are very pretty, there are outdoor spaces for enjoying the pool or BBQ'ing, and the house has a wonderful family room, dining room, and kitchen, and the master is amazing -- it's very nice in the pictures but it is way better than that in real life. We also entertained there and the property and home were perfect for that - a great floor plan and very comfortable and special place. We would return in a heartbeat and highly recommend that you vacation here -- you wont be sorry.
What a perfect place for a family reunion! Conveniently located on the outskirts of town, this home is spacious and well-equipped, with a gorgeous new kitchen and lovely pool, large yard, and patio. The owner greeted us warmly, showed us around, and encouraged us to treat the home as our own, which we truly appreciated. We were extremely comfortable with four adults and two small children, ages 3 and 5, and we would recommend the home to anyone except those who might have difficulty with stairs (access to the bedrooms). Our visit was in mid-July, but we would love to come back in the winter--such a wonderful spot, and so much to do in Williamstown and the surrounding area!
The photos of the house barely do it justice. It combines original, updated, and fully renovated rooms in a harmonious whole. The furnishings and art work are eclectic and beautiful. There are large rooms for everyone to gather and smaller rooms for quiet retreat. We chose this rental because our party of eight included four active boys/young men, aged 14 to 25, and we wanted enough outdoor space for their activities. We set up badminton and croquet, and there still was enough space for vigorous games of soccer and frisbee. The pool is lovely and feels nicely secluded. The retractable awning over the blue stone patio made it possible for us to have most of our meals outside, even when the weather wasn't perfect. Mary, the owner, was responsive and helpful,
This is a dream rental. Beautiful, spacious, warm, quiet, well equipped, perfectly located. We were there for four nights. Eight adults and a 3 1/2 year old. We have all traveled and stayed in lovely places but all agreed this is one of the loveliest, most comfortable places we've stayed. A large, beautiful lawn became a playground and soccer field, followed by luxuriating in a beautiful pool. This place has everything and more than one would wish for in a rental. And on top of everything, the owner is warm, gracious and helpful.
The rich cultural life of the Berkshires is at your doorstep: the renowned summer stock Williamstown Theater Festival, the Sterling & Francine Clark Art Museum's world class collection of paintings and sculpture, a trip to the fabulous MassMoCA, or an unforgettable evening under the stars listening to classical music at Tanglewood. Jacob's Pillow, The Mount, and Shakespeare & Company are also nearby.
There are dozens of scenic hikes nearby that will take you along streams, to waterfalls or to breathtaking views. And all the cycling that you could desire! Whether your are a culture vulture or an an avid outdoors lover, there is something for everyone in the Berkshires.
