Dalton is a quaint Central Berkshire Town that is only 30 minutes to Tanglewood and Jacobs Pillow and lacks the summer/fall tourist traffic of the Southern Berkshire Area.
The location is convenient with 10 minute access to grocery stores, Walmart and the Berkshire shopping mall makes it unique. If peace and tranquility are one of your vacation objectives, then this is the home for you!!
A Birdwatchers Paradise...Hikers explore the woods on and behind the property...Fishing & Boating 2 miles past the house on Hinsdales Lake Ashmere...Downhill or Crosscountry Skiing at Jimminy Peak or Brodi Mountain 20 minutes away...Fall Foliage Color overload right at the property!!
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall this vacation property offers year round possibilities!!!
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Janice was born and raised in the Berkshires. The home was purchased in 2001 so that she could go back home to visit from her life in Florida She is a busy Real Estate Broker in (Lee and Collier Counties) Naples, FL and cannot make it back as much as she'd like, so she is SHARING the house with all of YOU!!
Why the Owner Chose Dalton, MA, USA:
Janice likes the quietude of the country. This 8.5 acres backs up to more forest and not far up the road is the Cleveland Reservoir (State Property) The location of the property is such that you feel like you are in the middle of no where but its all straight down the hill 5 miles away!! THE PROPERTY IS UNIQUE ONE OF A KIND AND BY NO MEANS RUN OF THE MILL (That is what drew me to it immediatley!! As a 30 year REALTOR I have seen it ALL!!)
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The real benefit to those folks who will be traveling to Tanglewood or South County allot is the lack of traffic in Dalton!!!! In addition, I have a secret back way to Tanglewoood that ONLY us locals know. It lands you right smack at the parking and NO TRAFFIC!!!( I mean ZERO)
