Property description

Beautiful, spacious, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, family home in the Berkshires located on a private road on crystal clear Richmond Pond with private dock for swimming and boating. Our home in the Berkshires is comfortable and clean with hardwood floors, skylights, spacious closets, and wood paneling. It has been newly renovated, with a new dishwasher, new refrigerator, new stove, energy efficient washer and dryer, and lush landscaping. There are many books, games, a fully equipped kitchen with a table and six chairs plus additional dining room table which seats up to 10. We provide clean linens, a rowboat, a paddleboat, life preservers, and many water toys. The house sleeps 7 people in comfortable bedrooms. There is a large wooden deck with a table, umbrella, and chairs, and a second shower in an adjacent building with plenty of hot water. No smoking. Good quality Time Warner Wireless Internet is provided, plus cable TV (flat screen), DVD and VCR. (Note that Time Warner Wireless was installed in 2016 so earlier reviews do not list it.) Fishing is excellent in Richmond Pond; it is stocked with a variety of perch, pumpkinseed, bream, bluegill, rock bass, bullhead, brook trout, brown trout, crappie, largemouth bass and pickerel . It is a 15 minute drive to Tanglewood (summer home of the Boston Symphony); also close to Berkshire Theatre Festival, Stockbridge; Barrington Stage, Pittsfield; Lenox; Great Barrington; Jacob’s Pillow; and Williamstown. Albany airport is 1 hour away. Hiking, biking, and water skiing are all available.
