About the property

great place to get away from it all

Compact home with tremendous space. Great for family + in-laws, or 2 - 3 couples. Open ground floor with kitchen, dining and living in one large open room. Master bedroom with queen bed, kids bedroom with 2 singles on a sleeping attic. Lower level has a garden room with its own bathroom and very comfortable sleeping couch for 2.

The house is located on a gravel road, and surrounded by endless forrest. There is no WIFI, and only spotty cell phone reception, so a great way to get away from it all.

5 minutes away from York Lake for boating and swimming. Close to the Southfield Store, the most delicious place for coffee, lunch and dinner (and WIFI....). Dining at the Inn on the Green. 20 min by car to Great Barrington.

lovely stylish cabin in the woods .. perfect get-away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during the coldest week of the year for a ski trip. The cabin is very quaint, colonial and yet stylish. The kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of games, books and other activities to enjoy. We have 2 boys (4 and 6) who loved the loft space. They were able to navigate the stairs, but I wouldn't recommend the loft for children of any younger age. The owners were very responsive and left us a lovely bottle of wine. The wood-burning stove kept the entire house warm, even on the coldest day. Can't wait to stay again for a complete get-away.

A peaceful oasis in the country - even better the second time!

  • 5 of 5

I was so thrilled to come back to this special spot in New Marlborough with my family. The house was spotless, peaceful and calm, and the perfect home base for a country weekend spent hiking, apple picking and just enjoying the quiet.

Peaceful, perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is a special house, and we enjoyed every moment. It was cozy, comfortable, beautifully designed and in the perfect location to enjoy the rest of the Berkshires. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house and Florian, the owner, was responsive and a pleasure to communicate with. The house is in a beautiful spot right near York Lake and is quite lovely. There is a big living room ainple but great main bedroom and a big lawn, plus a bonfire put where we roasted marshmallows for S'mores.

I would have rated it five stars but you pay quite a lot for what you get. The house ought to have wireless internet and the owner family (which is, by the look of things, wonderful and a family I'd love to meet) ought to clear out a bit more of their stuff from the closets and drawers. Also if you bring small kids be aware that there is a sleeping loft whose stairway warrants close supervision to use.

Love this wonderful house

  • 4 of 5

My husband, daughter and myself have stayed in this charming house multiple times and each time we love it more. The location is wonderful - quiet, peaceful, away-from-it-all but easily accessible to Southfield Store, New Marlborough and Great Barrington. Very accommodating hosts!
