Owner info

About the owner: Originally from Boston, I have lived in NYC, London, Paris and Florence. I love to travel - but I have been based in Williamstown for the past 20 years. In addition to travel, I love yoga, cycling, hiking, skiing, and sailing. If I'm not here, I'm probably off doing one of those things!

Why the Owner Chose Williamstown, MA, USA:
The Berkshires offer a unique combination of natural beauty and cultural sophistication. I hope that my home, furnishings, and property mirror this! I am delighted to share my comfortable home with fellow travelers who will enjoy the eclectic furnishings from my travels and treat the house as if it were their own. Nothing is more delightful than to enjoy an outing at Clark or a hike up the Pine Cobble trail on a hot summer day, and to return to the house for a dip in the pool and a barbecue on the patio!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beautiful home, indoor & out/Delicious Inground Pool/Close to town/Far enough away from town to feel completely rural/Close to hiking trails/Close to museums/Close to the theater/Close to Williams campus
