My beautiful country home is located 15 minutes outside of Great Barrington, close to Butternut Ski Resort, in the charming town of Mill River. It is a wonderful home for a weekend get-away, peaceful as well as close to local restaurants and entertainment. The main floor is a bright, airy space with an open floor-plan living room, dining room, kitchen and bath. There is a master bedroom, a queen bedroom and a single bedroom on the second floor, and a large queen bedroom on the third floor.

The space
The house is open, light-filled and colorful. It is great for entertaining, or quiet days and nights listening to peepers down at the marsh. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, simply decorated, and filled with books and art. Every window looks out at bright green nature.

The house easily sleeps seven, more with a bit of planning and inflatable beds. There are three bedrooms with queen beds, one with a single bed. There are three bathrooms, two with showers and one with a romantic clawfoot tub. The first floor bathroom has a washer/dryer, and bath/beach towels. Sheets and extra blankets are provided.

The kitchen is great for cooking and hanging out. The appliances are new, and there is everything you need for dinners at home as well as entertaining.

Great porch overlooking the lawn for relaxing, grilling, and dining. Peepers, finches, and wildlife abound. Watch a heron fly upriver while you play croquet on the lawn.

The house is child friendly but it is NOT a baby-proof house. There are glass tables, stairs and old floors. The house is perfect for couples and families with kids over five. No pets please!

Guest access
We are a short walk to the Mill River General store for ice cream and necessities. The garage is stocked with croquet, badminton, and bocci ball - perfect for playing on the lawn on lazy afternoons. There are many wonderful lakes and river to swim in during the summer, and tubes, beach chairs, and an inflatable boat are available in the garage.

High speed internet, wifi, washer, dryer, all kitchen amenities.
Gas grill on deck.

Ten minutes to ski , fifteen to the town of Great Barrington, and close to surrounding towns of Lenox, Stockbridge.

Summer arts and dance festivals - Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, and more. Many places to swim and be by the water - beautiful Umpachene Falls Park, minutes away by car or bike, features cascading waterfalls with several pools, falls and chutes to play in. York Lake and Beartown State Park are also nearby.

Dining at the Southfield Store, Cantina 229 and the Inn on the Green.
Local farmer's markets and roadside fresh eggs.

Other things to note
HOUSE IS AVAILABLE FOR LONG TERM RENTAL BEGINNING IN SEPTEMBER.
BOOKINGS ACCEPTED FOR JULY AND AUGUST FOR ONE WEEK OR LONGER ONLY!

SPOTTY CELL SERVICE IN NEW MARLBOROUGH!! This is either a blessing or a curse. Please check the directions and plan your route before you travel.

There is window air conditioning in the house that is quite sufficient on first floor and second. There is an air conditioner in the third floor bedroom and in the art room/office on the second floor. Many fans throughout the house.

Bathrooms are old-fashioned; two showers, (one inside the standing tub, and one bathroom has only a claw-footed tub).
