Private, Yet Close To Town

Located in: Alford
This property is very private, back a long driveway on a quiet country road, yet is a quick ride to the center of Great Barrington (7 mini), approximately 20 minutes to Tanglewood (closer via the back roads shortcut!), close to Butternut and Catamount ski areas, as well as all the Berkshire attractions. Very close to some of the nicest swimming places in the Berkshires. Hiking nearby / and on the property.

On the property there are 8 acres of hiking trails, plus another 35 acres adjacent of trails, plus 90 acres across the road of trails (great for XC skiing in the winters too!). In the front of the house is a very nice open field which we keep well mowed, so nice to amble around in. Lots of outdoor seating too! And a fire-pit.

The house is a 2 bedroom / 2 bath house newly renovated, clad in dark siding and cedar, with large panoramic windows and skylights. Drawing upon our collection of mid-century furniture, we have outfitted the house with some iconic pieces. The house is fully furnished, yet deliberately spare, a blank canvas for you to use for a few days, a week, a month or longer.

It is perfect for a family or 2 (or 3) couples.
Upstairs is a HUGE BEDROOM, with a queen sized bed. It's a loft-like open sitting area with plenty of light, and also a small exterior balcony. Approximately the size of a nice large studio apartment, with high ceilings and forest AND mountain views. And a bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower. This room is also excellent for practicing yoga, high ceilings, wood floors; 6 mats will easily fit in here (and we can put you in contact with several excellent yoga instructors who will come to the house to give you private classes). Or put all the kids up here, it's like a separate private apartment.

Downstairs there is a streamlined COZY BEDROOM, like a large stateroom in an ocean does NOT mean cramped though. Full sized bed. Full bathroom adjacent.

BEDS are new pillow top mattresses, very deluxe and comfortable; 300 thread count all cotton sheets and duvet covers; down pillows, down comforters OR hypoallergenic comforters and pillows, as you wish.

The LIVING ROOM has a fireplace, a great desk for working / writing (and a fold out / fold flat sofa bed.

There are sliding glass doors out to a small deck, and a step down to a large meadow and beautiful woods with hardwood copses, beech woods, old stone walls.

DINING ROOM is well appointed, good light, very convivial possibilities, seats 8 comfortably, but is not huge, you won’t get lost in it. Great light and views.

The KITCHEN is well outfitted; VIKING RANGE, with convection oven, vented hood, dishwasher, Cuisnart food processor, a blender, drip coffee pot, & French Press, also a coffee grinder. China is also mid-century; there is a lovely deck off of the kitchen, with outdoor seating and grill.

Small covered deck off of living room, and small deck off of upstairs bedroom as well.

There is an art studio, with heat and great light all around, skylights, work tables - a great place for a project of any sort (and as we live just up the road, if there are any tools or resources you need, chances are we can bring them right over)

Washer / dryer.

Bicycles available, plus many other useful things. We live just up the road, and so are available if there is anything you need.

Excellent high efficiency / hot water circulating furnace and a cozy fireplace with insert.

Cost is as noted in listing, plus a cleaning fee and deposit, depending upon length of stay. Your weekly cost also includes as much as you need from our organic farm up the road.

We are very flexible about checking in / checking out. However unless you specifically confirm the times you're coming (and going) we must ask that you check in after 4pm, and check out by 12:00 pm

Thanks and feel free to ask any questions.

Oh - and a note regarding reviews - several of these reviews are from another site; we pasted them in. I put them in here so you could see that we work as thoroughly as we know how to do, in order to ensure our guests have a wonderful and memorable experience in this house. If there were a review with critical feedback, we would have posted that as well, and also responded with how we changed things so as not to have the issue occur again. This house is a serious venture for us, and our strongest wish is that our guests are completely satisfied. (and please don't take this as a challenge to give us a poor review!). VRBO reviews are marked as such. Thanks again!
