My wife and I have visited Richard's Egremont home many times. It's cozy and roomy, well appointed with great furnishings, and comfy beds. We love the setting which is very priviate and has nice vistas. We've watched shooting stars from the deck several times. A great place from which to explore the Berkshires. Just down the road from Great Barrington, you are close to good restaurants, shops, culture, and entertainment. And there are lots of wonderful nature sites and walks in the immediate area. Super!
