Williamstown house description

The historic Musterfield House was built in 1784 There are six bedrooms and 16 can sleep comforably.. This beautiful 5000+ sq ft home was a stop on the underground railroad. This is an exceptional home for groups from 6-16 The home is comfortably accomadates large groups and .small.


The House Inside: A former guest told me she and her family felt they had rented their own Bed and Breakfast. Providing charm, comfort,and class. You will enjoy if you are a large muti generation family, playing softball in the big yard. or looking to dine elegantly with friends. We have hosted 'girls weekend away', Williams events, family reunions, friends coming to from all over the country to spend time together. The house is great for 6 or 16 its very flexible. Read a book in the library, while noisey kids play a video game.You wont be bothered. They knew how to build a house 227 ago.

The Amenities: We try to provide all the comforts of home. The kitchen with its huge center island, is perfect for several cooks. It is well equipped to cook gormet meals. Dine at the causal table or a formal dinner for 12 in the dining room. Games, toys, videos, b, there is a closet full of fun things for adults and children. The outdoor area has a huge propane grill, a fire pit, everything for dining outside. There is a (12'x4') small swimming pool for children. We have tried to think of everything.

The fun people have had!: I raised my family in the house, it has been so satisfying to know the fun my renters have had there. Once again the house ifs filled with love laughter and good times. I always stop by to be sure all is going smooth. I have been able to share a little of those good times. The history of the house is fascinating. From its role as a part of the Underground Railroad during the Civil War, to the 200+ babies that were born there. So close to all the great attractions of the Berkshires but a true country house with horses (sometimes) in the back yard.

                          The Bershires are the summer cultural capital of the USA. The arts offerings overflow. Theater, Tanglewwod ,opera , Shakespeare and Co. Dance at Jacobs Pillow. Then there are the outdoor activities. Golf, white water rafting, hiking, tennis. Or just relax, breath the country air, the breezes, open the windows in the house and the cross winds will cool you as you listen to the sweet summer sounds. It is a wonderful destination for children. I think you would find the house very 'child friendly' in both summer and winter. I have all the equipment for toddlers and babies. (crib, high chair toys etc) They can run the open acres of the back yard and you can sit and the huge deck and watch them while you enjoy a glass of wine. There is a Mass State Park a mile down the road Get vegatables from the farmers market, go to a 'farm team' baseball game. Williamstown sophisticated or simple its up to you.

                          What I feel is a bit special, I offer you a home to rent and not a house. You are in a beautiful country setting yet so close to anything you might need.
