Car: Recommended

Property is located in the Black Diamond Road section of Mountainside. It’s height above the base area gives it peace and quiet, as well as fantastic views that are not found in the lower Hemlock Village section of Mountainside. The elevation and exposure to the mountain also ensure a fresh breeze. It takes about five minutes to walk down to the base area. Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort is a fun place to be year-round. Non-winter activities include: Mountain Biking trails, Aerial ropes course & zip lines, Bungee Trampolines, Alpine Slide, Mountain Coaster, Bungee Swing, Climbing Wall, Chairlift access to summit, hiking trails, pools, tennis, dining, shops.

The house is 14 miles from Williamstown and a great “base camp” for Williams College activities. Very close to all Berkshire things to do: Tanglewood (19mi), Canyon Ranch (19mi), Cranwell (20mi), Great Barrington (32mi), and Edith Wharton’s The Mount (21mi). Also close to many public golf courses (only 14 miles to Taconic Golf Club, the #1 public course in Massachusetts), great rivers for fly fishing and white water rafting, amazing hiking trails, and miles of road and rail trails for biking. Wine tasting, hot air ballooning, rowing/sculling, fresh farm produce, amazing restaurants, cultural and recreation activities, and endless antiques/shops are all nearby. Pittsfield is 12 miles away for groceries and essentials. Or you can read a book and never leave!
