Ski in ski out in winter, 4-season Berkshire getaway. Comfort of a hosted private home. Privacy of being on your own floor (private bathroom, separate entrance, and sitting room.) Our Swiss chalet-style home is located on a quiet dirt road adjacent to the Catamount Ski Area/Adventure Park. Large deck, beautiful outdoor spaces. 10 min. from Great Barrington, 30 min. from Tanglewood, hiking trails out the back door. Guest room is in the lower-level walk-out.

A kiadó hely

We live on the main floor.. Two guest rooms are on the lower level; the other one may be rented out as well. In addition to your private room with its own private bathroom, you and any other guests have will have use of the spacious lower level common area. The two guests rooms are physically at opposite ends of the downstairs, so you will have privacy and there shouldn't be any noise-bleed-through. You are also welcome to hang out on the deck, use the grill, share a story or linger over a cup of tea…. whatever floats your boat. House is built into a hill, so bedrooms are below grade (no windows, brightly lit, naturally cool in summer, very quiet). The rest of the lowe level is at grade with two windows and three sliding doors.

Vendégek hozzáférése

We invite you to join us for breakfast (8 - 10 a.m.) Please let us know about any allergies. We offer a European-style buffet (bread and pastries, fruit, cheese, meat, boiled eggs, cereal, coffee, tea, oatmeal an option). Also, for a small additional fee (payable in advance through the AirBnB system) you can arrange to have a ski-lunch here at the house if you are staying the following night. Please let us know if you'd like this in advance. We offer French onion soup, tomato soup, chicken soup, hot cocoa (plus coffee and/or tea), chili, and home-made mac and cheese. Price is $15 per person.

Kapcsolat a vendégekkel

We'll follow your lead.
We enjoy making new friends but respect the need for privacy – and our home is ideally set up to give you the option to interact or not.
We are always willing to share our knowledge of the area. Karen has hiked the entire Appalachian Trail, so if you need to know about hiking hereabouts, just ask. David is a great cook and can point you in the direction of good restaurants and live music. We are both professional musicians and music teachers: If you're so inclined, you can join us for evening music making.

Egyéb fontos dolgok

We invite you to join us for breakfast (8 am to 10 am). Please let us know about any allergies. We offer low-carb and vegetarian options.

Note that while Air B and B and many GPS systems insist on locating us in Great Barrington, our actual real-life physical location is 10 minutes west of Great Barrington, and three miles west of the tiny village of South Egremont, next door to Catamount Ski Area on the border of Egremont, MA and Hillsdale, NY.

This is the second time staying with Karen and David, such a pleasure to spend time with them in their beautiful home. Being there in fall surrounded by the mountain was breathtaking. I am sure it won't be the last time I stay with them

Karen and David have this lovely place in the mountains that is but a few yards from civilization, You feel you are really close to nature and yet you have all this with all the comforts and hospitality they bring to us. I really recommend their place if you like to be in touch with nature at an unspoiled place , close to conforts of modern life. They are also great hosts!!! The breakfast was great too!!

Had a wonderful stay at David and Karen's secluded country home. Surrounded by woods and far from neighbors, this makes a great retreat. We visited in the summer, but I imagine it would be beautiful in the winter (although the drive on the back roads wouldn't be great for all cars). Your interaction with Karen and David are what you want it to be. You have a private entrance, mini fridge, private bath and shared living space if there's another guest. The kitchen is upstairs and David made us feel like we could use it as we pleased. He also made us an amazing breakfast (and great coffee). Although, we didn't get to meet Karen, based on how kind David is, I'm sure she is wonderful too. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for an escape!

Karen and David were wonderful and welcoming hosts! The accommodations are clean and neat, and the views are lovely! The room was very dark without a window, but I slept so deeply! Breakfast, and Karen's easy conversation, made for a lovely morning before I headed out to explore the gorgeous Berkshires area. It was a very sweet stay.

Thanks so much, Kelly! I am in awe that you managed to ride your bike over that mountain. I am going to buy a bunch of those maps to our trails so I can make them available to future guests. Come back and visit us again!

Karen is a wonderful host, period. She's very easy to communicate with, has amazing suggestions about what to do in the area (and her house is beautifully located, very close to restaurants, trailheads and the skiing slope), and if that wasn't enough she and her husband make you a delicious breakfast every morning. I'm almost sad to be leaving this review because I wish I could keep her house secret! I will be definitely coming back.

The Berkshires are a haven for the arts and the outdoors. Our rustic home reflects our love for both; doing Air B&B allows us to share this wonderful part of the country with others. If you love skiing, hiking, music, and books, you're in the right place!

Karen is a long-distance backpacker and Appalachian Trail thru-hiker who has hiked 18,000 miles all over the world and has written 17 books. She also teaches piano (though not while you will be visiting!).

David is the lead editor at the Guitarnoise website. He teaches guitar (also mandolin, bass, banjo, ukulele, and piano), writes instructional books, and leads creative music jams.

As a travel writer who has been all over the world, Karen thinks the most important part of traveling is getting to know the locals. Hosting Air B&B when she returns to the place she has chosen to call home is a natural fit. We are happy to share our knowledge of the Berkshires with you, swap hiking tales, share a glass of wine or a cup of coffee... or leave you in peace to enjoy your private part of our home undisturbed. Just let us know!

We will be offering Air B&B experiences as well in music, skking, and hiking.

For foreign guests: We speak a little French. Not enough to claim fluency, but enough to communicate with you.
