About Alexander Atwater

My family has strong roots to the Charlemont area dating back to the mid 19th Century. Our great uncle Allan Healy even wrote the definitive history of Charlemont.

Alexander Atwater purchased this house in 2005

Why Alexander Atwater chose Heath

There are few places left in the world where we can slow down and re-connect with our natural environment. New England and in particular this area offers the chance to get away from the stresses of modern life!

What makes this house unique

Radiant heat in lower level of house. Large comfortable sofas and beds. Large windows and downstairs open plan layout give the house a light and airy feeling. This house will have a calming effect on all. Functioning wood stove.

Beautiful and clean house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with an infant and our senior parents and aunt to visit our nearby sister. It was the perfect house with excellent living spaces and beautiful views. We expected a lovely house from the photos, but the photos didn’t portray the perfect layout that made our weekend.

We look forward to returning for another visit as do our parents.

Great place to stay. Wonderful view, convenient to both Shelburne Falls and Charlemont.

Very comfortable living quarters. Plenty of space for all of us to spread out in the house.

Easily felt at home here.

Peaceful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this well maintained house, with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. It's a short ride from Shelburne Falls and outdoor attractions in the surrounding area. There is a beautiful view and nice walk down to a pond. Plenty of room for five people.

Beautiful home in a gorgeous setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home and setting. The listing pictures are spot on. The kitchen equipment is basic and perfectly functional. There is no microwave or outdoor grill, and if you have particular cooking in mind, you may want to bring some of your own equipment or have fun improvising. One could spend a week with no desire to leave the property. Very relaxing. Bring a book and take lovely walks through the back fields and woods. Nearby are all of the cultural and sporting attractions of western Massachusetts, including Berkshire East (skiing, mountain coaster, mountain biking, zip lining, rafting), Zoar Outdoor (rafting and zip lining) and Crabapple Whitewater rafting, the village of Shelburne Falls (Bridge of Flowers, glacial potholes, artists, restaurants), the Clark Museum in Williamstown, Mass Moca in North Adams, and all of Northampton (Smith College Museum of Art, Smith College Botanical Garden, so many restaurants, galleries, music venues, etc.).
