'Hanzel & Gretal' Pine filled ten acre getaway in the Berkshires. Post & Beam full of sun light and sky lights every where. There are 3 bedrooms 2 bath (one bdr down two bdrs second floor). Sleeps 6 French doors off of living room and dinning room brings you to rear deck. House sits with the Farmington River only 100 feet from deck. Beautiful and very private acreage. No neighbors near this lovely Timber Peg beamed home. You drive on only counrty roads to get around from town to town no lights no stop signs. Beautiful counrty side driving. Great Barrington 20 min away full of great resturants, theather, live music and Lee 10 minutes away has large outlet off of route 8. Near by 2 to 3 miles away is beautiful Otis Reservoir-Tolland State Park for swimming, canoe rentals, hike or just kick back and relax. Jacobs Pillow is 5 minutes away and Tanglewood 40 minutes away in Lenox. If you get a chilly night our fireplace is the best. So get away and be in the real country side. The pictures do not do this house justice!!! Our house is about 1/2 mile from 23E/W
