About Karen Cimini

A long-time resident of Berkshire County, I enjoy biking, canoeing, snowshoeing, and spending time with family. My husband and I currently live in Pittsfield Massachusetts.

Karen Cimini purchased this house in 1987

Why Karen Cimini chose Berkshires

The land that we built this home on was passed down to me by my father. I lived here for 27 years and raised 5 children so it is a very special place to me.

What makes this house unique

The privacy of this property makes it very unique. If you are looking for a quiet place to spend a summer afternoon or a home base for exploring this spot has everything you need.

Very nice place.

The home is very organized and clean; it's very close to the A.T. which we used for day hiking. The owner stays in touch and is helpful.

A lovely house in the countryside

  • 4 of 5

4 women stayed here for the weekend and found that the house met our needs for a comfortable and relaxing time. The beds were great and all of the equipment worked well. There were many things to do around Becket and lots of travel brochures available in the house to peruse. The house was well-stocked with movies and games to last the weekend and beyond. Overall, a very pleasant stay. Karen was very responsive to all inquiries and needs. Thanks!

Cozy, clean and charming

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a girls weekend and it was perfect. Karen left the outside and inside lights on as we arrived at night. The house is very well equipped, clean and spacious. Having two full baths was so nice. The 3 bedrooms were perfect. The kitchen was stocked with everything you will ever need. The furniture was comfortable and very clean. We are already planning on renting this home again. Karen was always available for any questions or concerns. We can't wait to go back!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house with our 6 children. Karen was a pleasure to deal with from the get-go; so accommodating! The house was beautiful and very clean. linen and towels were so soft and comfortable. It was so relaxing because it is so secluded and private. The pool was nice but very cold at this point in the season. The best part for my boys was the fire pit - they loved setting it up and of course the fire itself! The piano was so much fun and a novelty for my kids! I definitely recommend this house!
