The Space

Relax on the porch of this lovely home in Housatonic, an old mill town hamlet at the north end of hopping Great Barrington, Mass. Our tall-trees neighborhood is at a quiet center of all the Southern Berkshire action with a pub, corner market and art galleries right down the street.

The room has a comfortable double bed, shared bath, wi-fi, cable TV, a great book selection, and kitchen access. Bring some snacks to tide you over in case I don't have what you need -- I can offer tea, coffee and bagels but generally you're on your own for eats and I can recommend!

We are located off Route 183 just south of Norman Rockwell Museum, Chesterwood, and Tanglewood, two blocks to the Housatonic River and just north of Great Barrington proper.

We are in the midst of breathtaking cycling, hiking and walking areas in Alford, Great Barrington and SheffieldGreat food, drink and music are nearby at the Brick House Pub, Red Lion Inn, and eat spots in downtown Great Barrington. I am an active cyclist with great recommendations for rides and routes in this region.

Come and go at your leisure.
