Monterey is a bucolic hamlet of 1000 residents. It is heavily wooded, has two lakes and many trails. Close to many of the most popular cultural activities of the Berkshires, but quiet and very serenely beautiful. In addition to a goat farm, the town has a library, church, a General Store,

and parks, as well as a restored home from the 1700s, Bidwell House. Lenox, home of Tanglewood, and Stockbridge are 15 minutes away. Butternut for skiing is six miles away. Monterey is home to many community activities, including Lake Fest and the annual Steak Roast. It is also the home of Gould Farm, a therapeutic community that is over 100 years old, with a wonderful Roadside Store (breakfast/lunch) and a bakery.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: We are devoted Berkshire Hills lovers, and have been coming to this area for over 30 years. The landscape, the cultural activities and the tranquility are a great pull for us to relax and enjoy socializing.

Why the Owner Chose Monterey, MA, USA:
Monterey is a special hamlet, very rural and bucolic. Two lakes are pristine and beckoning in the summer. Proximity to the many cultural activities in the area make the location ideal. Close to Tanglewood, Kripalu, Cranwell, Berkshire Theatre Group, Jacob's Pillow, the Mahawie and others. Butternut, a beautifully groomed ski mountain, is only six miles away for family fun in the winter. Fall is amazing with the foliage. The house, on four acres, is a beautiful contemporary home that brings the outdoors in and makes relaxing easy!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The wooded lot, the skylights, the antique furnishings, the ease of living make this house perfect for a vacation. High speed internet enables you to stay in touch if need be. The spiral staircase, the propane stove all add charm. And the quiet cannot be beat!i The lake is one mile away and is tranquil. The general store is even closer and offers a big deck over the Konkapot River for morning coffee. The experience of living in a rural hamlet of less than 1,000 calms the soul and brings quiet and beauty.
