Charming, Rustic, Casual Summer Home set in the middle of a nature preserve. This cottage is not fancy, but fully furnished, with 4 small bedrooms (2 queens, 1 dbl, 2 twins), full kitchen with D/W, and washer/dryer in basement. 1 bedroom on main floor, 3 bedrooms upstairs. Main bath upstairs with small powder room on main floor. Stone patio with table and chairs and BBQ. The house is built around a great stone fireplace with hand-hewn chestnut beams, and is great for families or the perfect peaceful retreat for a couple or two. The main bathroom is on the second floor, with a shallow bathtub/shower combo. Water is from a well, that produces the best drinking water on the east coast! You can walk to a swimming pond and walk the local trails. Or you can drive anywhere in the foothills of the Berkshires, you're 2 miles from the closest small grocery store in Cornwall Bridge, and 7 miles from Kent, CT, or 10 miles from Bantam / Litchfield. Take the train into NYC if you need a big city hit, closest station is Harlem Valley/Wingdale on the Metro line. Drive up to Mass Moca in western MA, it's about 2.5 hours to North Adams. This is country living at it's affordable finest. The Beehive was originally an old farmhouse build around 1850, and has been lovingly restored and winterized over many years. It is well-loved by it's owners, and the walls are adorned with lovely paintings and antique furniture mixed with vacation necessities. Bring your own personal hotspot (cellphone works fine). There is no TV. This is a place to disconnect, but you can hook up your Ipod or music device to the old stereo and fill the place with your favorite sounds.
Winter Rentals are only possible if the renter will occupy the home FULL TIME. No weekend only rentals.
