Property description

Beautiful, fully renovated getaway at the end of a dirt road, surrounded by protected woodland. The beautiful view of the pond is yours to enjoy. Hike around the pond, take out the canoe or ride a bike. The house is near the Appalachian trail and all area attractions.

Features include 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, brand new kitchen, open living and dining room and laundry room. There is a wood stove available, with gas heat back up. On the Lee/Becket Line, you are 5 minutes from Jacob's Pillow and 15 minutes from Tanglewood.

The house is filled with antiques that need to be treated gently. Also, it is not the best place for young children, because the stairs inside, both going up and down are open on one side and between treads.

When you walk in you are on the main floor. It has the kitchen, living/dining room and a half bath. Upstairs is the master bedroom that has 1 queen size bed; 2nd upstairs bedroom has a double bed on the bottom and a twin on top (can't be separated and the top bunk is really for children) and a full bath with a tub/shower; downstairs there are three bedrooms--bedroom 1 has a queen bed; downstairs bedroom two has a queen and a twin bed; downstairs bedroom 3 has a twin and not much room for anything else. Also the beds and pillows are protected with plastic covers. You can put an extra sheet or pillowcase on (respectively) if you find this uncomfortable.
The downstairs bathroom has a large walk-in tiled shower.

Check-in is after 3 pm and check-out is between 10:30 and 11 am.
