The home includes a full bath and shower, laundry facilities, and an outdoor cedar-lined shower with a view of the Berkshire sky, one queen bed and one bunk in the bedroom, two single beds in a semi-private sleeping area enclosed by the historic indoor stable off the living room, and one double bed in a semi-private sleeping area adjacent to the kitchen.
There is a large deck off the west side of the barn for casual dining where guests can listen to the rushing sound of Kitchen Brook, a beautiful trout-stocked brook on the property. Enjoy evenings with sausages and s’mores around the large outdoor fire pit. Perfect for family summer vacations, fall foliage, winter skiing and snowmobiling, and reunions.
