About Cynthia LaPier

We live in the Berkshires full time when we are not traveling or at our other home on Martha's Vineyard. The Berkshires are great! Gorgeous landscapes abound, unlimited opportunities for outdoor activities, with great restaurants, culture and people!

Cynthia LaPier purchased this house in 1997

Why Cynthia LaPier chose Berkshires

When I saw this property almost 20 years ago, my breath was taken away. It's located on a network of protected dirt roads with gorgeous views of the Taconic Range - The Appalachian trail runs right along it. The house is cozy in the winter, cool in the summer, full of sunshine and views. The kitchen is great to cook in. In the summer, the pool is the main attraction - its a beautifully landscaped 20x40 in ground pool accessed from the house by the large deck. In the Fall and Winter the views can't be beat and the walking, hiking, x-country skiing, snowshoeing are right outside the door. At the end of the day relaxing with a fire in the wood stove is just the thing.

Cozy winter visit

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice stay over New Years weekend. The house was comfortable and cozy, with lots of toys and games for our granddaughter--who also loved visiting the goats. We're sorry that it was winter, because the pool and patio area looked great!

Wonderful home for family

  • 5 of 5

A very family friendly home with goats and ducks to greet you as you arrive. The A/C worked even on 85+ degree days. Host was great at communicating. The pool was a great bonus for the kids. It's really not a bad drive to get anywhere in the Berkshires from here. Comfortable beds (even the pull-out couch in the playroom) and ultimately a great home away from home for a week.
