Monterey house description

NOT YOUR USUAL RENTAL PROPERTY! Think about Summer Vacation 2015 at this charming country, wooded retreat on 3 acres in beautiful and historic Monterey. Entering this lovely home will make you smile! JUST ADDED AIR CONDITIONING means you stay cool on those hot and humid summer days!!

Walk into a bright and airy multi-level home with cathedral ceilings, skylights, an open floor plan and views of the surrounding woods. It is very artistically decorated, sparkling clean, and stocked with.everything you need--linens, dishes, pots and pans, etc.. Lots of privacy between upstairs and downstairs levels makes the house perfect to have guests or for 2 families.

This is a 'child-friendly' home with lots of children's toys, games, books and videos. There are even Pak N Plays and booster seats/high chairs available for the little ones. The house comfortably sleeps up to 6 adults + children in 3 full BRs + convertible den with queen sleeper and 3 full baths, SEE CONFIGURATION OF HOUSE and more details by clicking on 'More Details' on lower left, corner of this box.

Walk to Lake Garfield's sandy town beach, staffed by a lifeguard, to fish, swim and socialize! Private tennis court is steps away. Nearby community dock for swimming and boating is private and available for your use.

You can walk to Monterey General Store for a cup of Joe and The New York Times or Boston Globe; 10 minutes to Lee and Gt. Barrington's shops, restaurants,movies. Close to Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Stockbridge, Lenox. Near working farms for fresh produce, great baked goods and animal-viewing.

This is a flashback to simpler times!!

Sorry, no pets due to allergies. (This house is perfect if you have animal allergies!!)

Owner will be nearby should you need any assistance or have any questions during your stay. A detailed house/area manual will be provided.
