This beautiful, serene, and wooded location is just minutes from Lake Garfield in Monterey Mass, in the heart of the Berkshires. The room has a private en suite bath and a view of our 14 acres of backyard and woods.

The space
The bedroom is airy and has ample space and a comfortable double bed. It's the only bedroom on the second floor of our modern, newly built house.

Guest access
There's an ensuite bathroom and access to the living room. A ceiling fan moves the air in the room but we do not have air conditioning.

Our backyard and gardens are surrounded by woods. You could even walk down to the brook that runs through our woods and take a dip.

We are 2 minutes by car and 10 minutes walking distance from the Monterey town beach (Lake Garfield) where you can swim, canoe or Kayak, fish, and enjoy the beautiful views. Close by is the Roadside Cafe, the best local breakfast in the Berkshires! It’s open Wednesday-Saturday.

We are 15 mins from Great Barrington, a 25 minute drive from Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, The Norman Rockwell Museum, Chesterwood, Stockbridge, Lenox, and all the Berkshire attractions both north and south.

Other things to note
Coffee and/or tea will always be available in the morning. A popular Monterey breakfast spot is the Roadside Cafe, operated by Gould Farm, open Wednesday-Saturday. Great Barrington's well-known breakfast eatery is Botannica on Railroad Street.

We are a 14 minute walk or a 2 minute ride away from Lake Garfield with its small sandy "beach" and grassy picnic area and easy parking. There's a ramp for a canoe, kayak or boat. A mile away is the Monterey Library with free WiFi.
Great Barrington with all its wonderful restaurants and shops is an easy, scenic 9 miles away on Route 23.
Tanglewood is the same distance away from Monterey as it is from Great Barrington and Jacob's Pillow is even closer than from GB. Pittsfield (Barrington Stage, Berkshire Museum and much more) is equidistant--Monterey or Great Barrington. So you can exchange the hustle and bustle of GB (and higher room prices!) for the peace and quiet and economy of our Airbnb room!

During your stay
We are here if you need anything. In summer, you will find me puttering around in the garden, which is my favorite activity. You are free to come and go as you please and enjoy your vacation!
