Cavendish house description

Private wooded setting on 80+ acres, pond, mountain views, spacious living room with wood stove, sun room. Beautiful mixture of antique & contemporary furnishings. Writing desks in every room for the contemplative visitor. Satellite TV, VCR, stereo with cassette and CD players. We now have WIRELESS internet as well! Jenn-Air stove and oven, microwave, and fully furnished kitchen. We even supply the cottage with good sharp knives for the gourmet cook! Grill, picnic table, hammocks and tire swing on the property.

My response time: I always respond promptly to any inquiry by phone or e-mail. My spam catcher occasionally stops these e-mails from getting to me, so if you don't hear back quickly, please try calling.

The area: Cavendish is a quiet town, located 7 miles from Ludlow and the Okemo Ski Resort. The Cottage at Stone Walls is situated on 75 acres outside of the village. There are many historic, tourist, and outdoor attractions in the area, but if you want peace and quiet, you have only to stay around the property and you will not be disturbed. Writing tables in every room, beautiful sunny views to inspire you. Plenty of room for your children to play and run around outside, tire swings, hammocks, etc.

References: I would be happy to put you in contact with previous guests of the Cottage, many of whom return year after year.
