It’s no wonder why a multitude of actors, composers, and artists have hideaways in the Berkshires. This classic Berkshires home, originally built as a schoolhouse in 1866, is steeped in history and rural charm. Full of wooden touches and warm accents, the home has been thoughtfully designed for relaxed, rural living. When you sip your morning coffee, you’ll have views of horses in the rolling fields. Later on, gather the group for meals by the traditional wood-burning stove between walks along the brooks and journeys into Wahconah Falls State Park. The home is secluded enough to let you disconnect surrounded by natural splendour, but there’s no shortage of entertainment to be found. Famous for its culture just as much as its landscape, The Berkshires are just as robust with art exhibitions and literary events as they are with rolling hills. Even Moby Dick is said to have been written somewhere amidst these very mountains. If you’re looking for a place on the east coast where the famous goes to truly hide, this is it.
