About Hilary Mueller

I'm a married mother of four, an I.T. specialist and I love my crazy life! I was born and raised in Great Barrington, with the exception of college and Boston for a couple of years and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. My family and I ski, hike, swim, fish, and do a million other things all in this beautiful town. (That is when we're not at a hockey game, basketball game or a Cheerleading event)

Hilary Mueller purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Hilary Mueller chose Berkshires

Have you ever wanted to sneak away to a little corner of heaven? Well that's the cottage. It's beautiful and comfortable inside and out. When you're there you feel like you're tucked away into nature but you're only a mile from the coolest downtown the Berkshire's has to offer. We're also just 1 mile from Butternut ski mountain, and let me tell you there is nothing better then getting the kids all geared up at the house and being on the mountain in 5 minutes!

Couldn't have stayed at a better place. All of the amenities of home but a fabulous getaway. Everything is easy to get to, town, hiking, excellent restaurants. A perfect relaxing week-end and I'm looking forward to my next stay.

Ski Butternut

Nestled in the southwestern corner of Massachusetts, we are bordered by Connecticut to the south and New York to the west. We're easy to reach by car and are less than 2-1/2 hours from both New York City and Boston. The Appalachian Trail winds through our scenic network of mountains, streams, lakes and forests. We're rich with history and surrounded by natural beauty. In addition we offer exciting recreation, unique shopping, exquisite art galleries and antiques, world-class performing arts and dining and a solid professional community and diversified small-business base.

Main Street -- include the perfect start to any day: breakfast at a café. There are plenty of places to choose from. The popular Martin's Restaurant is a town staple that serves breakfast all day and is located just off of Main Street. The funky Gypsy Joynt is right on the main drag and offers coffee and baked goods, although it's not the place to go for a if you're looking for a full breakfast. But to have a pastry and be entertained by wacky baristas, this is your place.

Walking the Main Street gives you a good sense of the town. It looks and feels like an updated Norman Rockwell painting. (And if it puts you in the mood for some more Norman Rockwell, the Rockwell museum is 15 minutes away.) There's a focus on good food, yoga, meditation and staying small. Great Barrington is a great place to get a cup of coffee window shop, explore the side streets, and allow yourself to wander.
