                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My brothers and I now own the farmhouse that has been our family gathering place for generations before us. We would come to the farm every summer from our home in Connecticut. While no longer an operating dairy farm, the house, lawns, fields, and barns that were our great summer escape are still there for us. We love it and think you will too.

                  Why the Owner Chose Canaan:
                  If you are looking for a house with lots of space to gather friends and family, lawns for them to be outdoors, and easy access to interesting places in the Berkshires, you can't find a better vacation spot.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  The view from our kitchen table is mesmerizing.
