This cabin was shared by re-uning nearby Berkshire School graduates and was perfect. It had all the needed amenities, WiFi, Hdtv with a dish, beautiful fireplace, nice kitchen, sleep in screened-in porch and best of all great views all times of the day and in all weather. We had from 3 to 5 staying there in two bedrooms, two blow up beds and a mattress on the porch. Shower worked well and had good flow and plenty of hot water.The road in is a little rugged and would be hard to find for the first time after dark. Close to a great breakfast place, a liquor store with a good supply of Bourbon and an over-priced and fairly rudely run restaurant.
