Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: This will be our retirement home. Tom is a consultant to health care and charitable organizations. Karen is an attorney working with employment and discrimination cases. Lola, our field spaniel is a wonderful ten year old! We live in Boston and enjoy the Berkshires as well as international travel with volunteer choir called Sharing A New Song.

Why the Owner Chose Sheffield, MA, USA:
We bought this place because the Berkshires is an incredible wealth of culture, BSO, Tanglewood, Theaters, Museums, Spas, Recreation, All Seasons, etc. We also have good friends in the area and love cultural events, the out-of-doors and the Berkshire community.

The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
Quiet, nature setting with lovely scenery, art and other amenities. Private and still within 15-20 minutes of conveniences. Very nice back porch with mountain views, perennial gardens, close to many outdoor and cultural activities! Cherry floors, tiled kitchen and baths, designer lighting, international travel pictures and New England decor. Very comfortable home for escape from the City! Allows dogs!
