About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Amenities: 7+ acre hillside property features far reaching mountain views, a swimming pond and small creek. This wonderful 2600 sq ft, 4 bedroom, 2 bath family home has so much to offer the renter all year long! One mile from Catamount Mountain for winter skiing and summer ropes course. Easy drive to Hudson, Great Barrington and all that the wonderful Berkshires have to offer. Satellite TV and Internet, bedding, towels, and washer/dryer are all included.

The home:
The kitchen, dining room and living room are situated in an open floor plan on the upper level with a full wall of glass sliding doors to take in the views. A deck wraps around the living room and dining room and includes Adirondack chairs, table with umbrella, and a gas grill. The furnished screened in porch off the kitchen allows for outdoor living without the bugs. The updated kitchen has high-end stainless steal appliances, oodles of cabinets, counter space, and cooking gadgets. The upper level has the master bedroom suite with a queen bed, full bathroom with tub/shower combination, and window A/C unit in the summer.
If traveling with small children, a Pack N Play and small high chair seat are on site for use!

The lower level floor has 3 bedrooms, a full bath with shower and a TV room with sliding doors that lead to the ground floor deck.

The 7+ acres feature a swimming pond with a floating dock, a small creek running along the edge of the property, and plenty of land to explore and hike. (Fishing in the pond is allowed, but catch and release only please.) There is an outdoor shower tucked in a protected nook on the ground floor. In winter, just step out the front door for great sledding and snowshoeing!

The house is perfectly located for a great get-away. 30 minutes to Hudson for great food, art galleries and antiquing. 20 minutes to the great shops and restaurants in Great Barrington. For hikers, Bash Bish Falls is a 10 minute drive as is the Appalachian Trail. For skiers you are only one mile from Catamount (, 20 minutes to Butternut ( and 45 to Jiminy Peak( Summer renters can enjoy the sense of getting-away-from-it-all, but still be within a short drive to all the cultural events the Berkshires are known for: live theater, dance, wonderful shopping, restaurants, galleries. etc. Plenty of lakes surround the area for swimming, head to Taconic State Park or stay home and jump right into the pond.

NO SMOKING and well behaved pets are considered with a $150 pet fee.
