The space
Nestled in the Berkshire hills and sitting above Lake Garfield our cottage is serene, private and beautiful. In winter the ridges of East Mountain can be seen from the living room windows. In summer you are surrounded by woods, field and myriad flower gardens. Enjoy your morning coffee in the sun room or in the gazebo. Take an afternoon walk down our country lane and view the sunset.

Guest access
In summer you will enjoy town beach 3 minutes away by car. We are half an hour from any of the summer Arts venues (Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theatre Festival, etc.)that make this area of the country so renowned and so special. In Autumn, hike the Appalachian trail or pick apples at one of our local orchards. In winter curl up in front of our new gas fireplace with a good book and enjoy being inside on such a cold or snowy afternoon. If you are a skier, Butternut ski slope is just 12 minutes away. Stockbridege is 20 minutes away. Great Barrington, which was voted "best small town in America" in 2012 by the Smithsonian is also just 20 minutes away. There you will enjoy nightlife and many wonderful restaurants.

Other things to note
The kitchen is fully equipped and includes coffee, teas and spices.
A note about internet: We have the fastest internet service (Verizon) available in our rural area. Good for services like email and internet search engines, but less good for high data content like movie downloads.
While visiting, please enjoy the slower Berkshire lifestyle that makes our cultural/mountain setting so renowned.

Hi there, I'm Eileen and the "wooden cottage with a bright blue door" has been my home for the last 18 years. Over time I have created a space that truly brings the outside in, and all four seasons can be enjoyed and appreciated from a comfy chair in the sun room. My first career was that of Broadway show dancer/actress, but for the last 30 years I have been a Clinical Social Worker in Private Practice and at Canyon Ranch. I also give wellness lectures at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. Gardens, flowers, dogs and nature herself are my passions. I love all the Arts venues available to me right in my own backyard here in the Berkshires. My partner is Stephen, a fine arts painter. His work can be seen in galleries at the Cape and in Wellesley, Ma. Some of his art work is also hanging at the cottage. A tour of his working studio in Great Barrington can be arranged.
