This cabin is in a lovely, peaceful setting. Cozy and private, it has enough room for a big family gathering. The cabin has almost 10 acres of privacy and lots of outdoor space, but is very close to all of the Berkshires attractions.

The space

This rustic, low-key and affordable cabin provides lots of space for a family gathering or a cozy weekend for two in the Berkshires. The house has been enjoyed by my family for four generations. Beds for ten (one queen, two twins and three bunk beds), two full bathrooms with showers (one tub) and a well-equipped kitchen. Laundry facilities in the basement.

The house is well shaded by trees on all sides and stays relatively cool in the summer (we supply fans for each bedroom). The front room has an open floor plan with living room, dining room and kitchen. New wood burning fireplace insert that keeps the whole house warm in the winter. Very kid friendly with a high chair, pack and play and booster seat. Board games, puzzles and cards, plus a craft area with some supplies.

We are also pet-friendly but ask that you ensure your pet does not cause any damage to the property and that you remove any pet waste from the lawn, yard or other trafficked or mowed areas.

The house sits on 10 acres with plenty of privacy, a brook running in the front of the property and plenty of outdoor backyard space with seating and a grill.

Guest access

Whole house, backyard and woods, brook.

The approach to the house was great - across a footbridge, over a babbling brook, and into the cozy living room. The house was comfortable with a very warm feeling, and easy to settle in to. The location is very private, with a large yard, picnic area, and lovely gardens.

My group of 6 absolutely loved staying at Kate's place. She was very kind, responsive and accommodating. The living room is so spacious and has the perfect cozy, homey feel. There are tons of towels and blankets and everything you need in the kitchen. The grounds are lovely with wild berries and a large lawn to run around on:) We spent a lot of time wading in the creek. This is a great place for a small group who loves nature, a rustic feel, a good nights sleep and the simple life. We would definitely come again.

I live and work in Boston with my family. I enjoy traveling, cooking, some gardening and spending time with my family. I love to check out local farmer's markets wherever I go.
