Great Barrington cabin description

Secluded high on a mountainside and surrounded by thousands of acres of state park and conservation land, The Pod is a rustic early 1970's timber and glass octagon set on a concrete pedestal. Decks on four sides with forest or distant mountain views. One stream runs within 15 feet of the master bedroom, a second is about 100 yards from the house. Our closest neighbor's home is about 150 yards away and invisible through the woods; there are very few homes in the area.

Great food, culture, entertainment, and shopping are all within easy striking distance: Downtown Great Barrington, 7 miles; Stockbridge, 15 miles; Tanglewood/Lenox, 21 miles; Hudson NY, 23 miles; Salisbury CT, 15 miles.

Possible Caveats: We purchased The Pod from it's original owner 7 years ago. It's clean, complete, and with all systems in excellent working order, but the place could use some paint -- we're working on it -- getting better all the time. Lots of stairs; may be difficult for those with mobility issues or small children. No air conditioning.

Keywords: Berkshires, Great Barrington, cabin, mountain, vacation rental.
