The kitchen comes fully-equipped, including a microwave and dishwasher, and conveniently located on the first floor is a washer and dryer.

                  The location of the house is only three blocks from the Williams College Theater, perfect for those visiting during the Williamstown Theater Festival. Less than a mile from the house is Spring Street, which has restaurants, a coffee house, movie theater, and post office. The Clark and Williams College Museums are also walking distance. Mt. Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts, is 12 miles away with easy to strenuous hiking trails and a vehicle road to the summit. The Ashuwillticook Rail Trail off Route 8 (13 mi.) is a flat, very scenic bike trail that doubles as a cross country ski route in winter; bikes can be rented at nearby Berkshire Outfitters. Jiminy Peak (14 mi.) is the closest ski resort, with a mountain coaster that is also open in summer. Fishing, boating, and a sandy beach for swimming can all be found at Grafton Lakes State Park, NY (18 mi.). Cricket Creek Farm (5.5 mi.) is fun to visit; cheeses and handmade goods can be purchased at their farm store.
