Monterey chalet description

This is a wonderfully “rustic” setting but, once inside, that is where the rustic elements end! This home boasts high end appliances and kitchen accessories, clean fresh sheets with down comforters, flat screen TVs, and other carefully prepared details that make your in the woods chalet getaway all so extra special.

The main floor has a sweet galley kitchen with bar seating for 2 and dining room seating for 8. The kitchen has a 5 burner stainless gas range, stainless fridge, microwave, blender, and a useful array of prep knives. The living room has sumptuous leather seating, a huge flat screen TV and floor-to-ceiling windows which afford you a constant view of this magnificent Berkshire setting! This area all open onto a fabulous deck with more seating, two umbrellas, views, and gas grill with prep station. The wood stove provides a constant warm glow all winter long… The main floor has its own ground floor master suite with Queen bed and full bath with a combined tub and shower. There is also an office which has been converted to a bedroom with a twin bed also on this main floor! These main floor bedroom have ceiling fans and/or portable room fans but this home stays wonderfully cool due to the house being at 1800 feet above sea level!

Upstairs you have another master suite: a lovely tucked away loft with proper closing door, king bed and full bath with shower only. This upper level bedroom has central AC. A second flat screen TV with DVD player is wall mounted in this cozy, luxurious space.

The lower ground floor level, which has doors that take you outside, has two twin beds, and a queen sleeper sofa. This is an easy area, greats for kids, but well appointed for adults too. This area can be considered as a games room, playroom, romper room… and it also has easy seating with another TV/DVD player and game station for kids of all ages! There is also a washer / dryer on this ground floor level and your outdoor gear is easily stored on this level.

Outside You will find a twisty driveway – we recommend, minimally, a front wheel drive vehicle for winter stays – leading you to this woodsy setting with outdoor fire pit. Lake Garfield Public Beach is less that 1/5 miles, Great Barrington is just 15 minutes and Ski Butternut is an easy 10 minutes drive! You cannot beat the the fun easy vibe of apres ski in this location!

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About: Hello, I am Claudia Laslie, owner and founder of Berkshire Rental Properties. I manage vacation rentals throughout the Southern Berkshires and my role is to act as the liaison between the renter and the homeowner. There is no fee to the renter for my service. I look forward to working with you to help you find a rental property that works well for your needs.

              Why Monterey:
              I chose to manage this wonderful home not only because of its stunning natural setting and easy proximity to local attractions but also because the owner has given wonderful attention to details. The furnishings, linens, and kitchen appliances are all of excellent quality!

              The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
              The deck with views is spectacular. The fire pit is cozy and woodsy and the home is roomy, providing privacy and space for two families or several friends to share together!
