The Cottage at Holiday Farm is a gorgeous place to spend the month, week or a mini-break weekend. Centered in the heart of a real, working farm there are miles of wooded trails and farm roads right outside the door. You can wander the farm, enjoy seasonal sports activities from cross-country skiing to mountain biking or you can simply relax as you take in the breath-taking views.

Located just outside of Pittsfield, you are less than fifteen minutes away from a bustling city where you can enjoy the day at the Berkshire Museum or (a little further out) explore Hancock Shaker Village, take in a show at Tanglewood or see what’s new at MassMOCA.

My family of 10 gathered at the farm for what was a wonderfully memorable Christmas. The experience met all my (high) expectations - the house was clean and well-maintained, the layout perfect for a large group, and the property a relaxing and fun place for city-folk to spend the week. The kitchen is huge with all necessary equipment to prepare a holiday meal and the two rooms on either side of the kitchen allow for TV and noise in one, quiet conversation in the other.
Bedrooms were large enough for siblings to share and having 3 full baths was ideal.
We enjoyed walking the property, lots of places to explore and piglets, sheep, cows, and the owner's/worker's dogs to meet.
In preparation for the visit, Mary answered my questions promptly. When a problem arose with contractors showing up to work on the property manager's house, which is attached to the farm house we rented, she addressed it immediately and sent them home for the week.
My family and I highly recommend spending time at the farm.

What a wonderful place to stay. My far-flung family stayed there over Thanksgiving and we had a great time. Desiree and Jesse were terrific and the house was exceptional. Cooking over Thanksgiving was a breeze. The kitchen is huge and well-equipped.
And the farm itself is lovely. We will definitely be back.
