Solitude, the Berkshires, Columbia County and more are yours in my open sun soaked three bedroom country home. Magical gardens, country road strolls, swim in the private community lake, tennis, hike up to the fire tower for a 360 view of the Berkshires, Catskills, Green Mountains. Shop and dine in Chatham, Lenox, Stockbridge, Great Barrington, Woodstock, Saratoga, or grill on the deck, have a fire in the pit and let the peepers sing you to sleep.
Enjoy your visit.
Please leave my home in the condition you found it when you arrived.
Recycle, reuse, reduce and compost.
My home stays very comfortable in the summer months. Open widows on cool evenings. Close windows in the morning and lower the shades on the east facing windows (towards the back yard and woods). On the west facing windows (front of the house) lower the shades in the afternoon, when the sun shines in. On humid days, the dehumidifier will assist in keeping the house comfortable. On particularly warm days, the air conditioner in the west facing bedroom will keep the mail living area cool.
There is no cable television. Local stations from Albany broadcast major networks as well as PBS. Additional programing, movies, games, etc. can be viewed the ROKU streaming player.
There are stringed instruments in my home which I prefer not be used. If you have small children, arrangements can be made to have the instruments relocated during your visit.
Please acknowledge the important role railroads have played in the local and national heritage, as trains still pass this way.
No pets inside my home. However, if he/she is a well behaved guest, the enclosed porch adjacent to the main living area will accommodate your pet nicely. An additional security deposit will be required for accommodating your pet.
No smoking in my home, on the decks or porches. Please leave no trace.
I am pretty much a native of this part of the planet and have spent most of my time here as a Special Education Teacher and growing my family.
What I love about living here: sweet air, hikes, the lake, cows, biking on country roads, snow sports, diverse music, bookstores, art, lots of very delicious food and extremely wonderful people.
