Built in 1860, the Riverhouse has been updated and outfitted for modern-day convenience but retains it's charm and unique appeal. The only house located on the banks of Rising Pond, it offers spectacular views of fall foliage, wildlife, and catch-and-release fishing from the deck. Easy access from the bank of the property for small boating and sculling. Located in the heart of the Berkshires, Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co., the Rockwell Museum, Chesterfield, summer stock theatre, music, and dance are all just minutes away.

Guest Access

This is the completely private two-bedroom upstairs apartment in a two-floor duplex. Guests have total access to all of the grounds along the river, charcoal grill (in the warmer months) and two parking spaces on the property. The Riverhouse is located directly on the river bank and near a road. Small children must be supervised at all times when outdoors.

Interaction with Guests

My mother-in-law will greet you with the key and be available for any questions or needs you might have during your stay.

The Neighborhood

The Riverhouse is secluded and peaceful but very centrally located to all winter and summer activities. Taft Farms for local products and produce is just 1 mile down the road and the Berkshire Mountain Bakery is within walking distance for fantastic baked goods, pizza, soups and delicious tapenades.

Getting Around

There is a local bus that stops directly in front of the Riverhouse but a car is recommended.

Other Things to Note

If you are lucky, my brother-in-law's band will be practicing in the music shed and you will be treated to wonderful live music during your stay.
