Additional Location Information

The Race Mountain House has parking for up to 10 vehicles. It is a a 15-minute drive from Great Barrington MA and 5 minutes from downtown Sheffield where Peter Pan Buslines delivers travelers to and from New York City. Also, the Metro North commuter rail from NYC lands at Wassaic Station, about 35 minuts drive from The Race Mountain House.

Set on an 85 acre property, the Race Mountain House is surrounded by forest. Head out the back door for an incredible network of hiking trails; the Appalachian trail is right nearby and a short hike leads to Race Brook Falls. Though the Mountain House is set back privately, our affiliation with Race Brook Lodge, just down the hill, provides guests with easy access to a swimming pool and other hotel amenities, while the adjacent Stagecoach tavern offers a great nearby option for fine dining.

Vibrant gatherings, workshops, and classes occur in Race Brook Lodge’s unique gathering spaces and on the permaculture-based Race Brook Farm.

Just down the road, bustling Great Barrington, described by Smithsonian magazine as "the best small town in America", offers plentiful shopping, entertainment, and a welcoming, colorful local community.

In the heart of the southern Berkshires, "America's premier cultural resort", Race Brook is a short, scenic drive from the best of the area's attractions.
