A snowmobile trail runs through the property offering hiking in the warmer season and snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing in the winter. Bring the whole family -an additional one bedroom apartment may be available for larger groups and/or special events (additional charge - PLEASE NOTE that the additional apartment is NOT offered out as a separate rental to other guests when guests book the Main Lodge, but Main Lodge guests have the option of adding the apartment on for an additional charge if they would like larger accommodations). Special events such as weddings, reunions, and retreats are welcome here - please inquire for details.
Guest satisfaction and enjoyment of their time here at the Rose and Goat Retreat are paramount to me. I love to travel with my husband Cal and our two boys, and we know how important clean accommodations are - and to that end I strive here at the Rose and Goat Retreat. I split time between the Rose and Goat Retreat in the Berkshires, Nantucket Island, and our Ormond Beach, Florida beach house.
Margo Van Peterson purchased this estate in 1974
My father bought this 50 acre property in 1974 from Marjorie Moore. It was a summer cabin place since the 1920's and where I spent summers as a child at Comsomore cabin. All seven cottages had names and I have rebuilt three of them, keeping their original quirky names - Comsomore, Lingerhere, and Hilltop. The Rose and Goat Retreat Main Lodge we built in 2000 in the spot of Marjorie's country store and former home, which sadly, the years had taken its toll on and was beyond restoration. My father's dream was to establish a retreat here for those looking for physical, mental, and spiritual rejuvenation. This place is very special to me and I love to share it with others who find it special as well!
The spectacular views take my breath away every time I look around - as well as every one else who comes here!
We had a younger generation thanksgiving get together at the Rose and Goat retreat, and it was absolutely perfect! The location was great, a short hop to North Adams and about 30 minutes to Williamstown, and the views from the house are spectacular. Margo was incredibly helpful in planning our getaway, and was a kind and generous host. We are looking forward to returning to Rose and Goat!
We recently stayed at the Rose and Goat Retreat's main lodge for our daughters 4th birthday weekend. Margo the owner was amazing to work with - extremely thoughtful and responsive, she went well above and beyond our expectations. When we walked into the lodge we were completely blown away by it's charm, views and comfort. There were 7 of us and we were easily accommodated with room to spare. We did a lot of cooking and found everything we needed. Very close to Williamstown and we visited the farm there with the kids. Our final evening at the lodge it snowed (in October!) and we sat by the fire and enjoyed a cozy evening in an amazing setting. We will definitely be back, this place is a true gem.
We had a wonderful time. Our hostess Margo was a delight. She greeted us upon our arrival to make sure we had all the accommodations that we expected at that time. A bottle of wine and flowers set the atmosphere after she left. The home was lovely, with all the comforts that we desired...a secluded location, with amazing mountain views, yet close to all the sights. The local shops, restaurants, a concert at Tanglewood, and white water rafting were the high lights of our trip. Great location to enjoy all that the Berkshires have to offer in a rental that is truly spectacular. Thank you Margo for sharing your beautiful home with us!
