About the Property

Chalet, 1 Bedroom + Den with Bed, 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 4 pp /2 couples)

The tree house has a queen-sized bed in a private bedroom with full bath and a double bed in the living room, as well as a sofabed in the living room. With its geometric, octagonal shape, this luxury rental has plenty of nooks and crannies in which to snuggle up with a new vacation read. There is an additional full bathroom off the living room, making mornings and nights a breeze for when this upscale accommodation is at capacity.

A modern wood-burning fireplace is the centerpiece of the living room, surrounded by large windows that offer vacationers stunning views of the woodlands around the tree house. The dining area off of the kitchen includes similar and equally as impressive views of the surrounding area, as grand windows are a prime feature in this luxury tree house.

A fully stocked kitchen allows guests to cook all their own meals, should they so choose, and includes a fridge, a dishwasher, and utensils. Guests will also enjoy Wi-Fi throughout the accommodation, as well as an outdoor barbecue on the patio. Linens are provided.

Location + Surroundings
Guests will find this glamping site in western Massachusetts in the Berkshire Mountains, only an eighth of a mile away from Otis Ridge, a popular, family-friendly ski area. This highland area is home to world-renowned cultural attractions and gorgeous nature destinations. Right outside the octagonal tree house is a peaceful hiking trail that leads to a large, tree-lined pond, while another path leads to a ski slope. Great Barrington, a charming New England town, is 20 minutes away by car.

Additional information
For a weekend night stay, there is a $50 increase per day, bringing the daily rate to $250.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I'm a creative who work/live in Manhattan. We travel constantly, but love our getaways in the country when we can.

Why the Owner Chose Otis, MA, USA:
The Berkshires are an idyllic part of America. Despite being extremely 'country', this area boasts some incredible cultural experiences. Tanglewood , Jacob's Pillow, Mass Moca, and Kripalu are all top notch experiences. The artisanal food available is up to par with any big city farmers market, and nearby Great Barrington is a wonderful little city full of great shops and an independent movie theater.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Our house is a few hundred yards from Otis ridge ski mountain, a tiny little resort just bought and updated by Butternut. It's perfect for firsttime skiiers and children. We are also within 30 miles from the larger Butternut, Blanford, and Bosquet mountains. There is an Appalachian trailhead 8 miles from our house and wonderful hiking/swimming all nearby.
