The SpaceAn historic property within a short drive to all the Berkshires has to offer: Jiminy Peak, Berkshire East, Bousquet, MassMoCa, WCMA, The Clark Art Institute; it's all only 30 minutes from this vacation home property. The house is a unique combination of a restored 1880 barn attached to a 1866 one room school house on a small, lightly traveled back road. The property is situated on 6 rural acres surrounded by woods and horse pastures. The house has radiant floor heat throughout most for silent, comfortable warmth. A cast iron wood stove makes the game room and guest loft warm and cozy. The home was design for entertaining with a large open format, big dining room and game room complete with bar, billiards table and foosball table.
The house is fully furnished and sleeps 9. One bedroom is on the first floor to accommodate those with an aversion to stairs. Kids will love the open space inside the house and out. The yard is perfect for sledding and sleds are here waiting for you.
Cross country skiers rejoice: Notchview Reservation is 5 minutes up the road and a ski-friendly golf course is right across the street! If you want back-country skiing, just walk over to the neighboring Holiday Farm with 100's of acres of ungroomed wooded terrain. Guest AccessThe whole house and 6 acres of yard and wooded land is your to explore: There are foot bridges in the back woods that lead you to trails, Holiday Brook and an ancient mill pond bed compete with old stone foundation ruins of an 18th century saw mill. Wahconah Falls is a 1 mile walk up the road and Holiday Brook Farm is a fabulous working farm right across the street where you can visit the farm yard, see the animals and buy their homemade Maple Syrup. Come stay in March and you may get to visit the sugar house and watch them make the Maple Syrup. Interaction with GuestsI like to greet my guests and show them through the house. If I am not available to do this in person, my father, who lives just a mile away will greet you, show you around and make sure you are comfortable.
