Monterey is ideally located in South Berkshire County. The house is set on one of the most beautiful roads in the county, in a woodlands landscape, and surrounded by hiking trails, state forest, lakes and ponds - close to many Berkshire attractions.

It's a classic New England Cape with a contemporary interior – clean, peaceful and bright - and offers a fabulous indoor/outdoor lifestyle. It’s ideal for one or two couples, or a family of four.

Pets considered. Please discuss before booking.

The space
Our home is a classic New England Cape with a contemporary interior – always clean and peaceful, bright and uncluttered. It’s ideal for one or two couples, or a family of four.

The first floor offers an open plan - living, kitchen, dining, a separate living room with beautiful fieldstone fireplace, and a screened porch with plenty of room for both relaxing and dining.

The kitchen, which overlooks the backyard, is well designed and equipped to make beautiful meals. The dining area with banquette comfortably seats eight, and is also a delightful spot to curl up with a book in the afternoon. If you like a more intimate spot for meals in the Winter, set the table in the living room and dine by firelight.

The sunroom is where we gather while cooking and entertaining, watch movies and listen to music. This space is heated by a modern wood stove which provides a cozy ambience.

The formal living room is a nice room to gather for festive beverages by the warmth of the fieldstone fireplace, and a quiet place to lose yourself in a good book, or get some work done.

The first floor also has a half bath. Laundry is in the basement.

Outdoors you’ll find lawns both front and back where you can relax or play, a fire pit which is a fun conversation spot after dark, and a fabulous outdoor shower (hot and cold, available May to October).

On the second floor we have two bedrooms and a full bath. The bathroom has a large shower with glass wall (no bathtub). The bedrooms are nicely sized with closets, bureaus, one queen bed and one full bed.

Our guests love the peacefulness of our Monterey Getaway - some days just taking a long walk on the picturesque road, or grabbing a few winks in the hammock on the porch - and the feeling of life within - cooking, dancing, enjoying good conversation with friends.

Bedroom and bathroom photos in process. Both beds and linens are excellent quality!

David and I love to travel to the ocean, and to visit friends across the country, so we're delighted to share our home with you. When we're not traveling we're cooking, entertaining, dancing, seeing films and enjoying the gorgeous Berkshires outdoors.
