About Maggi Smeal/ Ed Hattler
My wife Maggi and I are both physicians. We were married at this home and we love the beauty of this peaceful retreat. We have 2 grown children and currently live in California. We come here to bike and hike and ski during the day and have family meals in the evenings.
Why Maggi Smeal/ Ed Hattler chose Great Barrington
My father in law and brother in law searched the Berkshires to find a special property for family gatherings. The view from the patio is breathtaking. The large common room gives you a feel of being connected to the outdoors. We have celebrated many special occasions here! We are cyclists and enjoy rolling through the farmlands, gazing at the mountains, streams and waterfalls with occasional wildlife sightings!
What makes this House unique
This property is a retreat. It takes you away from your day to day life. It's the perfect location to connect with the natural world, to gaze at the stars at night, to see wild turkeys and deer and lots of different birds from the house and patio. There is a trail from the house into Beartown State Forrest and its a short walk to Benedict pond.
