Property description

This house is a wonderful retreat in the foothills of the Berkshires. It is the perfect location to spend your days relaxing on site or traveling to nearby tourist areas for daytrips. Has everything you need to just move in!

The house is on the middle branch of the Westfield River in Middlefield Mass. The river is 25 steps from the large backporch. The river is perfect for splashing around in! When you walk into this house, you will feel right at home. There are two tranquil bedrooms with a queen & full bed & ceiling fans. Enjoy the evenings relaxing in the large, comfortable living room watching a movie by a fire . There is a great DVD library to choose from or go 'old school' and listen to some records. This house is perfect for families- toys on site, great big yard, bikes, rope swing, and it doesn't end there! This is the perfect spot to get away!

For those of you looking for things to do, it is only 30-45 minutes in any direction before you find fun & entertainment! Art Museums, Shaker Museum, Norman Rockwell Museum, Tanglewood, Lenox, Waterslides, Butterfly Museum, Mt. Greylock; all just a short ride. Local blueberry picking and fairs in August. Rent by the week or month. No smokers need apply.

Also, great yard/location for a wedding or family reunion.
