Additional Location Information
SKI RESORTS: For the winter ski season, the house has close proximity to two local family-friendly mountains. Catamount Ski Resort is just 6 miles away and Butternut is 12 miles away in Great Barrington. Jiminy Peak Ski Resort is a larger mountain with more advanced terrain and is 1 hour away.After your day on the hill, stop for dinner at the cozy Stagecoach Tavern, less than a mile from the house and serving wonderful farm-to-table cuisine.
HIKING: Race Brook Falls trailhead is a short walk down the dirt road where you'll discover a beautiful 3-tier waterfall It's not a stretch to say that "Hawaiian waterfall" comes to mind when you visit Race Brook during the summer months. With lush greenery created by waterfall mist, cascading water over rocks, wading pools, and peaceful surroundings, you can easily imagine yourself in a remote Hawaiian rain forest.
SWIMMING: A refreshing dip is a must for cooling off. Here are some ideas:
Green River Water Hole: amazing spot! (2.5 miles north from S. Egremont on Route 23)
Lake Mansfield: a 40 acre body of water less than a mile from downtown Great Barrington. The lake has historically been a site for recreation, social gatherings, and solitude. Generations of swimmers have enjoyed its cool waters. A small beach with lifeguard and roped off swimming area is great for families with children.
