Renting through VRBO has proven to be a useful strategy for our family to maintain our family farm while work brought us away from the Berkshires. We have decided, however to cease renting at the end of August. We had planned to rent a home in Vermont which offered many of the same amenities as ours to live a final year near our daughters school -- due to health and other challenges that changed our plans, while our house is no longer available, you may be interested in renting this fantasic home in Waltham, Vermont -- close to Middlebury (a college town very similar to Williamstown) :https://www.vrbo.com/128697ha . To the many wonderful families who have rented in the past we are happy to have shared our home with you. We are posting this explanation as several renters have expressed confusion when asking for a reservation that was declined recently and to offer an alternative, albeit not in the Williamstown market, to folks who have enjoyed their stay at Cobble Hill Farm.

About Chuck Hunt
Chuck's family has owned the farm property for nearly 100 years. We built our home around an existing home in 2005 to raise our growing family -- three girls including a set of twins. We built the barn and riding facilities in 2007 to run a riding program for children and adults. Today, we are living in Vermont for Jane's work.
Chuck Hunt purchased this Farmhouse in 1997
Why Chuck Hunt chose Williamstown
With plenty of room for family, close to wonderful cultural, sports and outdoor attractions with many choices for dining out, our property is the perfect site to relax year round. Whether visiting Williams College for a prospective student or as an alum, many people make Williamstown an annual destination.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We have an above ground outdoor pool with a large deck with breathtaking views, a large great room with a pool table, a functional kitchen with a SubZero refrigerator, dishwasher. Our country dining room has a large table with access through french doors to a wrap around deck. The great room has a working fireplace. Our rural setting allows you to watch the neighbor's cows graze, have a game of wiffleball or frisbee and we have an awesome hill for sledding in the winter. Every room in our home is light-filled and the many windows offer wonderful views of the surrounding mountain ranges.

Cozy and welcoming!
This place was a great place for a get together. We had 8 adults and 4 small dogs. We did not feel cramped and there was plenty of space. When we had 2 friends visiting the couch room got a little tight, but we weren't spending our days on the couch anyway. There was plenty of fridge and freezer space and we all fit at the beautiful dining room table.
We went up for a hike on the Appalachian trail. After the hike we had all 3 showers going at once for at least 45 minutes and never ran out of hot water.
The owners are on site in the downstairs, but they never complained about noise or the dogs. They were extremely friendly and while exploring we accidentally went into their apartment.
The only con was not having a pool or the pool table, but the owners were great about it! In the end the entire group was very satisfied with our stay and we would definitely stay again!
This is a great very large house
We stayed for the local Williams College graduation. Three generations had a great time!
Meticulous farmhouse with such character
Hosted 9 adults without issue for a team building business meeting. Plenty of space for work and fun. Great location wit beautiful views from the deck. I highly recommend this property!!
Large family compound that felt homey and inviting!
We had a wonderful family gathering at this special property! Having two full kitchens helped immensely as we were hosting a crowd for Thanksgiving dinner. There was definitely room for our family to spread out. The views of the surrounding mountains were exquisite! The owners and caretakers were lovely and accommodating. Thank you for a memorable week in the Berkshires!
WONDERFUL COUNTRY FARMHOUSE!
Cobble Hill Farmhouse was wonderful! We had a cousin's family reunion there over the weekend and it was a perfect location. We had plenty of bedrooms and baths. There was also a lovely great room and large eating area. There is even a beautiful in-law suite downstairs with another stove/oven for cooking for a large group, which we did. We had appetizers on the lovely outdoor deck area and a cozy campfire in the fire pit area. We would definitely all like to return. Thanks to Jane for the prompt and pleasant communication.
Our group enjoyed our stay at the farm. It rained very hard one day we were there and we stayed indoors with 2 toddlers and 6 adults but with all the space we didn't run out of things to do or feel cramped. Loved that the house was so close to all the activities in town. We would stay again.
