Property description

Autumn may be the best time to spend time on a farm with spectacular views and lovely amenities. Mayflower Cottage is the prettiest place to experience the fall foliage in the Berkshires. You will have long views of the morning sunrise out of the kitchen windows to the east and warm afternoon sun sets 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose South Egremont, Egremont, MA, USA:
The guests at Mayflower Farm all agree that the views from the house are stunning! And, it's fun to watch the sheep.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
South Egremont is a beautiful Berkshire town. It is an easy commute from both NYC and Boston and it is close to Great Barrington and all of the wonderful visitor attractions that the Berkshires have to offer.
