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.
