Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6.

Spend time on a farm with spectacular views and lovely amenities. Mayflower Cottage is the prettiest place to experience springtime and summer in the Berkshires. Spring will bring forsythia, daffodils and baby lambs in addition to long views of the morning sunrise out of the kitchen windows to the east and warm afternoon sunsets to the west, where you'll see Jug End Mountain.

The Cottage is newly renovated and furnished. It has a fantastic kitchen and large farm table to accommodate the 'farm-to-table' experience. Surrounded by acres of protected pasture and hay fields with a southeast facing deck and screened porch.

The Cottage is on the Appalachian Trail 1 mile from the Jug End Road trailhead.

It is walking distance (1 mile) from South Egremont center where there is a country store, library, school house, post office, bank and fine restaurant.

South Egremont has a nine hole golf course at the Egremont Country Club which is open to the public. It is 2 miles from the cottage. Mayflower Farm has a tennis court available on the property.

About Peter and Ellen Maggio

Mayflower Farm has been in our family since 1973. Peter and Ellen have raised three daughters here in Berkshire County and have also been raising sheep since 1997. In 2010 the farm property across the road was available and the family purchased it. Adding the cottage and the barns to the sheep enterprise has been valuable. The entire farm consists of approximately 30 acres of owned and leased land, much of it conserved.

Peter and Ellen Maggio purchased this house in 2010

The guests at Mayflower Farm all agree that the views from the house are stunning!

And, it's fun to watch the sheep.

What makes this house unique

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the Mayflower Cottage! The setting was spectacular with views of the Berkshires and adorable sheep. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful mountain getaway which lets you feel isolated while also being within minutes of Downtown Great Barrington. Would return anytime! Thanks so much Peter and Ellen! You made our stay in the Berkshires very memorable!

Beautiful, peaceful, welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, peaceful setting, lovely welcoming hosts. Sitting on the screened-in porch, listening to the singing of birds and the baa-ing of sheep--we were there for a long holiday weekend, but felt, at the end, as if we'd been away for a month vacation. Hard to leave, eager to return!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cozy ,comfortable place with an awesome kitchen and spacious and relaxing living areas. Sitting on the patio on a cool September day watching the sheep graze as the sun rises and the fog burns off is perhaps the best therapy money can buy. Ellen and Peter are gracious hosts and have done a spectacular job with this cottage. I wish I could live here. We will certainly return. I already miss the sheep!

Wonderful relaxing and beautifully equipped house

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay ay the Mayflower Cottage. The house is well set up for a rental. Everything is tastefully done and everything works! The owners were very reliable. Sitting on the deck and watching the sheep go out, graze in the fields and come back was relaxing. The location is great for going to Tanglewood, Great Barrington and other places. Having the AT right out the door was handy for early morning walks on the trail. We would recommend this rental without any reservations at all.
