Cobble Hill Farm, located on 21 acres only a few miles from the center of Williamstown, MA is the perfect setting for a family vacation. Comfortably sleeping six adults, with expansive decks and property for walking, sledding, or a dip in the pool, you will find activities and attractions for all ages. With close proximity to the Williamstown Summer Theater and local museums, as well as myriad outdoor activities in this picturesque, small New England rural setting, family and friends will feel like they are miles away while having easy access to restaurants, skiing in the winter, golf in the summer, shopping and services. Spend the day hiking and end with a barbeque on the deck or marshmallow toasting around the fire pit or tour the Clark Art Institute followed by drinks at one of our many quality dining facilities, families will find much to do and the ability to relax and recharge at our farm retreat every season of the year. Please note that we ONLY accept reservations and ONLY communicate through VRBO/HomeAway and only take credit card payments through their secure on-line system.
Chuck's family has owned the farm property for nearly 100 years. We built our home around an existing home in 2005 to raise our growing family -- three girls including a set of twins. We built the barn and riding facilities in 2007 to run a riding program for children and adults. Today, we are living in Middlebury, VT where Jane has a full time job running an education technology company.
Chuck Hunt purchased this farmhouse in 1997
With plenty of room for family, close to wonderful cultural, sports and outdoor attractions with many choices for dining out, our property is the perfect site to relax year round. Whether visiting Williams College for a prospective student or as an alum, many people make Williamstown an annual destination.
We have an above ground outdoor pool with a large deck with breathtaking views, a large great room with a pool table, a functional kitchen with a SubZero refrigerator, dishwasher. Our country dining room has a large table with access through french doors to a wrap around deck. The great room has a working fireplace. Our rural setting allows you to watch the neighbor's cows graze, have a game of wiffleball or frisbee and we have an awesome hill for sledding in the winter. Every room in our home is light-filled and the many windows offer wonderful views of the surrounding mountain ranges.
We stayed at the Cobble Hill farm over Labor Day weekend and truly enjoyed it in every sense. We found the home spacious for six adults and four children. The bedrooms are all very nice and the master is quite ideal, with a wonderful view. Then again, the large bedroom downstairs, with its proximity to bath, sitting area, and second kitchen, is really like a master suite (though the bedroom lacked window curtain - a problem easily surmounted). The living room area upstairs is quite large and relaxing - a great spot for family board games. Our school aged children (and the grown-ups) loved the pool, which is a very nice above ground style with a deck that has a terrific view. The grounds gave us plenty of room for multiple lawn games and, for our two baseball players, dad used the expansive upper grazing land for hitting shags to the boys (the farm fence subbed well for the walls of Fenway). The Williamstown location made for easy access to the top of Mt. Greylock (via Notch Road in North Adams) and some of our party enjoyed a visit to The Clark Institute and its wonderful artwork. The kids also enjoyed part of a day at the nearby Jiminy Peak Mountain park (I made it down the mountain slide twice myself). We also enjoyed a round of golf at the delightful "A" in Pittsfield, a terrific, no-nonsense course that is great for the kids. With our intent of having a family get-together in a relaxing, beautiful setting, Cobble Hill farm more than met our expectations. We hope to be back! Oh, and on one starlit evening, we truly enjoyed the fire-pit area on the lower grounds. S'mores, the Milky Way, and pleasant conversations well into the evening.
This house was perfect for a our big family.
We filled 6 bedrooms and enjoyed the open floor plan.
The kids had fun playing outside and hikes were always on our agenda.
Great location which feels secluded but actually near to shopping.
This is the second time we have rented this house.
The first time was for a bachelorette party.
This is a beautiful house, wth ample space in the kitchen, dining and living areas for 10 people, and beds to match. The location is really special, up on a hill with fields stretching down to the road under an expansive mountain view to the west. It's a short drive (~5 min) to town but it feels like a different universe. Will definitely rent again in the future!
The house was large and comfortable with an eat-in kitchen and sunken living room. It was just as advertised and worked perfectly for a reunion weekend with two other families. The best part was the huge property with the stunning view of the mountains. The location was also great- just minutes from apple-picking and hiking trails, and not far from the many well-know Berkshires attractions. Overall we had a great experience with this rental!
I rented this property over Columbus Day weekend with family and friends. The house is beautiful and the pictures are an accurate representation. The layout is perfect for a larger group and the home is well appointed. There is plenty to do in the area though requires a car ride to get to most places. Try zip lining or visiting one of the many local farms. The owners were easy to do business with which is not always the case when renting properties. I would recommend the property and area for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of Massachusetts.
We had a wonderful stay at the Farm. The property has gorgeous views and you can sit out on the patio or at the pool to enjoy them. The farm is roughly a 2 mile, 5 min drive from the center of Williamstown, but very private. There are tons of bedrooms and bathrooms and lots of sheets, towels, blankets, etc - all very welcoming and well thought out for guests. Jane was very professional and easy to work with.
A short drive to the campus of Williams College, easy access to Berkshire area museums (the Clark Art Institute, Mass Moca) and attractions (Hancock Shaker Village, Tanglewood, Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, Manchester (VT) Outlets).
