About the Property
5+ Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 10
Inside this classic New England Barn converted to a home with all modern conveniences, the 24-ft. ceiling features original hand-cut beams. Sliding glass doors lead from the living area to the wraparound deck and splendid views across the valley. The kitchen comfortably seats 4; the dining area seats 10. The 2nd fl. has its own couch and chairs on a balcony that's open to the main room and mountain views. Next to the third-fl. Master BR is a rooftop cupola with 360º views.
Walk on our three large meadows or hike the wooded, hilly terrain. Stroll down the meadow to our private swimming pond (125' x 75' across, 10' deep), which is visible from the deck. Explore our old apple orchards and enjoy the wild blackberries as you hike to our trout stream, where rushing water is the only sound you'll hear.
Getting Wet: Swimming on the property is in our pond, which is about 100-150 feet long, 50-75 feet wide, and 9-12 feet deep in the middle. It’s located just a few minutes walk on a meadow path from the Barn, within view, at the bottom of the main meadow. There is no swimming pool. For beach swimming, boating and lake fishing, Cherry Plains State Park is very close by, with Queechy Lake in Canaan and Lake Pontoosuc in Lanesborough/Pittsfield each just a little farther away.
Staying Cool: Our air conditioners (all Q/double bedrooms), ceiling fan (main room) and other desktop fans are seldom used, since we catch a nice breeze coming up from the meadow. For the odd mid-summer cool evening, a cheery fire is perfect in either our stone fireplace or our wood burning stove.
Spreading Out: . FOR EXTRA LARGE GROUPS/FAMILIES, also inquire about available guest cottage .

About: This has been in our family since we converted it into a house; we've had many multigenerational family gatherings here over the years. We love it and hope that you will, too.
Why Lanesborough, MA, USA:
Some friends bought a place nearby and we feel in love with the area when we came to visit them.
The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
Nothing but starts, moon and the sound a tree peepers at night, and a magnificent view of the Berkshire mountains during the day. We're right near Jiminy Peak, but in a totally tranquil, secluded setting. The house is open and expansive and great for family gatherings. Oh, and there's a swing in the living room that will hold three adults.
