Our cabin is in a perfect central location to enjoy all that Berkshire county has to offer. Most local attractions are within a ten mile radius of the cabin. With local markets, big grocery store,department store, and great restaurants are only about 3-5 miles away. But yet the cabin creates an atmosphere of a cozy little place, with a private back yard, to just get away from it all. Berkshire County is a vacation destination for all four seasons.. Come and explore!!

Lovely Log Cabin Escape

  • 5 of 5

This place was soooo lovely! Our group of six thought it was a perfect place to stay and Lorie was a lovely host. It was also a great location, near both Caramount and Butternut mountains. I highly recommend this place! We will definitely go back!

Awesome ladies weekend!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything we read about the cabin was as stated. We came for a ladies weekend to celebrate a 50 birthday, and had a great time. Lorie was great to work with and answered all our questions right away. The cabin was a perfect setting to hang out and relax. The spiral stairs to get up are tricky, but manageable. Would definitely seek out this property again if the need were to arise. Great memories were made here this weekend. Thank you, Lorie.

Great Log Cabin!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great little log cabin perfectly located about 5-10 min away from the slopes and great little restaurants. There is a nice backyard area where our dogs were able to run and play. We really enjoyed the warm vibe, the fireplace and the sweet notes that were left for us. My one remark is that its listed to sleep 10 people and as a group of 10 it was very tight. We ended up bringing two air mattresses and using the pull out sofa bed. Comfortably this can fit 6-8 people. Even though it was very tight with 10 adults, we had a blast (even with one bathroom) and really enjoyed our time spent in the Cozy Log Home!

Very grateful for a lovely weekend.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is so cute and original. With the spiral wooden staircase leading to the second floor and the true Berkshire feel. It is easy to get to and is also tucked away for enough privacy at the same time. There is a cute market down the street with sandwiches, jellies, pies and anything you can think of from local farms and stores in the Berkshires. The owners of this place were fabulous! I would absolutely stay again! Thank you !!!!!
