About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Secluded high on a mountainside and surrounded by thousands of acres of state park and conservation land, The Pod is a rustic early 1970's timber and glass octagon set on a concrete pedestal. Decks on four sides with forest or distant mountain views. One stream runs within 15 feet of the master bedroom, a second is about 100 yards from the house. Our closest neighbor's home is about 150 yards away and invisible through the woods; there are very few homes in the area.

Trails on property connect to South Taconic Trail.

Great food, culture, entertainment, and shopping are all within easy striking distance: Downtown Great Barrington, 7 miles; Stockbridge, 15 miles; Tanglewood/Lenox, 21 miles; Hudson NY, 23 miles; Salisbury CT, 15 miles.

Possible Caveats: Lots of stairs; may be difficult for those with mobility issues or small children. No air conditioning.

Keywords: Berkshires, Great Barrington, cabin, treehouse, mountain, vacation rental.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Louise Feldman and Claude Borenzweig

Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington, MA, USA:
We live in New York City. When our kids were old enough to ski, we found the Berkshires to be perfect: easy/pleasant 2.5 drive, nice little ski mountains, natural beauty, lots of fine extra-curricular activities, and, as it was off-season for the area, we could rent a good house for the whole season for the cost of a week at a Vermont resort.___ After a few years of renting we started look for something to buy. The Pod was a magical find for us.___ We were looking for a modest home on great piece of land and the Pod more than hit the mark. As fans of mid-century architecture, this was a truly unique, modern home.___ Pre-fab from the late-sixties/early-seventies, the Pod was built by a New York fashion person. She had really great taste and color sense. She had "aged" out of the property and we got the house complete with its contents, many of which are still present.___ The kids are grown up now but we still get up there as often as we can to ski in winter. Spring and Fall we enjoy the area and do projects -- we only rent the house out in summer. The first few years it was catching up on "deferred maintenance" and restoration, but these days it's improvements, mostly landscaping.___ We're glad to able to share it with our summer guests.____
