Photos and Description of the Monterey vacation chalet rental

2 Bedroom Monterey Home Sleeps 6 Comfortably

This beautiful gem has been lovingly cared for by our family for 13 years—and has served as a relaxing retreat all year round. Our goal: to make you feel like it's your home away from home. It's comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated in the French country style—and is the perfect spot to relax or use as a home base for all your Berkshire activities.

It is family-friendly with child gates for the stairs—and plenty of games, toys, books, and movies for your children. No kids? These things are tucked away so you don't need to use them if you don't want! (Also, we use no pesticides on our property—and use only natural cleaning products on our you can feel healthy and safe in our home.)

There are 2 bedrooms upstairs: one master with a king-size bed and one smaller bedroom with a twin bed and pull-out twin bed. There is one downstairs bathroom. An open downstairs floor plan flows from the living room (with a wood-burning stove fired up by plenty of wood we have stored for you), to the kitchen to the dining room.

There's a super comfy pull-out sofa with a queen-size bed in the living room if you need extra space for your family or friends.

Off the dining room is the beautiful screened-in porch where you can sit for hours relaxing and enjoying the breeze and sounds of the Loom Brook from the back of the house. A connected deck allows for easy grilling with the gas grill.

In the summer, our house is just minutes from Lake Garfield, where there's a lake beach perfect for kids and adults alike! A lifeguard is present during the summer months—making it perfect for swimming out to the floating docks (it will bring back camp memories!). You can also canoe and kayak on this lake. We have sand toys, beach umbrellas, and chairs ready for your use. Love to hike? The Appalachian Trail crosses our road, which is perfect for walking any time of the year. We're also situated right near the Beartown State Forest with all its trails. Love to mountain bike? We have one bike available for your use; feel free to bring up your own bikes and ride along our dirt road — or on the nearby trails.

We're also close (about 20 minutes) to blueberry picking and apple picking.

We're 40 minutes from Tanglewood, 45 minutes from Jacob's Pillow, and just 25 minutes from the town of Great Barrington with its restaurants, bars, Triplex cinema, and the historic Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center.

Fall brings the beautiful splendor of the fall foliage home here; it surrounds the house and everywhere you turn. Go for walks, take in kayaking or canoeing on Lake Garfield, or just take a visit to the nearby Taft Farms for their pumpkins, fresh cider and hot donuts, and corn mazes.

Our home is just 15 minutes from Butternut Ski Resort, which is where our children have learned to ski from age 3. It's the perfect family resort and our home is close enough to put season's passes (or just one-day passes) to good use. You'll love coming home to the warmth of the wood stove and the comfort of our home. We also have snow shoes available for your use.

We are minutes from the town of Monterey, which is small but quaint. The Monterey General Store is gourmet; you can get delicious soups and sandwiches (as well as pies and treats) here, along with staples for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We are also just minutes from the Roadside Cafe, the perfect country diner for breakfast, lunch, and dinner Wednesday through Saturday. (There's also Great Barrington, Stockbridge, Lee, and Lenox—as well as Pittsfield...which is 45 minutes away...for more delicious restaurants.)

We are about a 25-minute drive from the outlets in Lee, about 30 minutes to Stockbridge (with the quaint and historic Red Lion Inn) and Lenox with the Cranwell Resort & Spa (where you can play golf and have top-notch spa treatments), the Kripalu Yoga Center, and Tanglewood (as well as Canyon Ranch).

Pets are allowed by individual request.

Our goal: to have you fall in love with our home just as much as we love it. We want you to feel this is your Monterey home away from home!
