Location Details

When you're not laying out on the beach or enjoying all the waterfront activity along Lake Garfield, the Appalcahian Trial Access is just a few miles away. Head out to see some of the area's historic attractions. Drive about 15 miles to see a live show at the famous Tanglewood venue. The town of Lenox also hosts many other cultural attractions, including Shakespeare and Company, The Mount, and several more theaters, art studios, museums, and more.

Exhibits at the Norman Rockwell Museum are about a 14-mile drive away, as is the Bershire Theatre Festival, while you can see live dance shows at Jacob's Pillow just under 14 miles away. After seeing a show, make your way to Great Barrington and dine at farm-to-table establishments like The Prairie Whale and Allium Restaurant + Bar.

Explore the outdoors during your stay and hike, climb, bike, cross-country ski, snowshoe, and more in East Mountain State Forest or Beartown State Forest. In the winter, bundle up and pack your gear to shred the slopes of Ski Butternut with 11 lifts and runs for all skill-levels across 10 acres. Both Catamount and Otis Ridge are also nearby.

  • Perfect cozy Berkshires spot


    We so enjoyed our stay at this lovely house. There was plenty of room for the whole family, lot's of great toys and games, and gorgeous scenery from every window. We even saw a bobcat! The weather was very cold and wet while we were visiting but the house stayed warm in this cozy house.

  • Wonderful and cozy winter stay


    This is a fantastic house nestled in th Berkshires with easy access to hiking and snow sports at Butternut, with a grocery store in Lee within 15 minutes. The house is very well equipped with everything you need for daily living. The beds are comfortable and the towels are plush. The house warms up quickly and stays warm even in deep winter. A couple of things to watch out for include no T-Mobile cellular reception right at the house (but there is WiFi at the house) and steep and somewhat uneven stairs from the main floor up to the bedrooms (can be challenging for small children or mobility impaired).Best of all, the owners share small pieces of their family history in the memorabilia displayed throughout the house and it's a real treat to learn about the family's connection to jazz music in America. We had a wonderful stay here and will plan to return on our next trip to the Berkshires.

  • Cozy winter location


    We had a cozy stay at the Monterey house. House had all the supplies needed. Beds were comfortable. Stairs are steep so need to be careful on them. Would stay here again!

  • WOW - such a beautiful house - great location, impeccably clean, well stocked, cozy with great family vibes!


    This was by far the best rental we have ever had the pleasure of experiencing! Loaded with vintage items, a GREAT vinyl record library that we fully enjoyed, lots of family items (artwork, photos) all around the house gave us a sense of a very loving family hosting us for the weekend. The house is nestled in a wooded area with pretty trees all around. We used the upper level deck and the lower level screened porch for coffee, cocktails, etc. The kitchen has a unique older stove that was fun to use (it worked beautifully). The card table in the living room came in handy for some marathon poker games listening to the great music selection. Easy , short drives to surrounding towns for shopping and dinner. Definitely recommend this house for a quiet and cozy get away. Many thanks to the family for sharing their treasures with their guests.

    The house was clean and comfortable. You can tell the owners make lots of memories there, and we did too! The screened-in porch and outdoor seating area were lovely. Lots of toys and games for kiddos. Thanks!
