About the Property
Enjoy comfort and seclusion on the slopes of Race Mountain for up to 15 people..
The open floor plan centers on a great room, with cathedral ceilings, large fireplace, sunken seating area, and generous windows facing the eastern views. Reclining sofas are just asking to be lounged on in front of a crackling fire. The well-appointed kitchen easily accommodates the hustle and bustle of preparing meals for large gatherings- we’ve had a wonderful time testing that out! The dining table seats 10.
Four bright, comfortably furnished bedrooms offer flexible sleeping options. 3 of the rooms can be configured with a king bed or two twins. Crisp bedding and uncluttered spaces allow for a deeply relaxing night of sleep. Three full bathrooms, including one with a luxurious Japanese-style cedar soaking tub, all have tile floors and thoughtful lighting.
Special touches are sprinkled throughout the house, from the family-heirloom Steinway piano to the handmade copper chandelier above the dining table. Perhaps best of all, climb a ladder, treehouse-style, from the airy common area on the second floor to reach the loft. Wall-to-wall cushions invite cuddling, movie watching or the creation of an imaginary kid’s fort. Two decks, one on each level, and a screened porch provide space to entertain in the fresh air or to look out at the stars.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The Berkshires are known as 'America's Premier Cultural Resort', and Race Brook is a short, scenic drive from the best of the area's attractions. Enjoy music at Tanglewood, a stroll at the Botanical Gardens, dance at Jacob's pillow, and all the natural riches of the most rural, mountainous area of Massachusetts. In the winter, enjoy nearby skiing and snowshowing. Great Barrington, the hub of south county, is just a short drive away. Billed as the 'best small town in America' by Smithsonian magazine, GB is a vibrant, bustling community brimming with boutiques, entertainment options, outdoor spaces, and friendly local characters.
Set on an 85 acre property, the Race Mountain House is surrounded by forest. Head out the back door for an incredible network of hiking trails; the Appalachian trail is right nearby and a short hike leads to Race Brook Falls. Though the Mountain House is set back privately, our affiliation with Race Brook Lodge, just down the hill, provides guests with easy access to a swimming pool and other hotel amenities, while the adjacent Stagecoach tavern offers a great nearby option for fine dining.
Vibrant gatherings, workshops, and classes occur in Race Brook Lodge’s unique gathering spaces and on the permaculture-based Race Brook Farm.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Race Brook Lodge is the Berkshires' most interesting Chintz-Free rustic mountain escape. We have 30 rooms and host all kinds of workshops and retreats, weddings, community celebrations and other gatherings. We also have an organic farm and outdoor education center where we grow food for our restaurant, The Stagecoach Tavern and host workshops in Permaculture Design, Natural Building and Organic Agriculture. The Race Mountain House is the newest addition to our family and we are very excited to welcome you here!
Why the Owner Chose Sheffield, MA, USA:
This is a sacred piece of land... sitting on the side of Mt. Race and surrounded by protected public land and Nature Conservancy reserves. It borders our B&B, Race Brook Lodge and our fledgeling organic farm where we grow food for The Stagecoach Tavern.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is very spacious and comfortable and the view is truly epic. There is direct access to great hiking trails to Race Falls, Mt. Race, Mt. Everett, Guilder Pond, and Sage's Ravine. It's also very close to Great Barrington and Catamount Ski Area. And you'll love the large Japanese soaking tub!
