What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?

Not only can you revel in the immediate beauty of the surrounding nature, launch your motorboat and fish just down the street, but you can also quickly reach Tanglewood, Bousquet Mountain Ski Area, or Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, or indulge in fine dining and boutique shopping in popular Lee, Lenox, Stockbridge, and Great Barrington.

If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?

The secret is Upper Goose Pond.  If you enjoy kayaking/canoeing, you must go there. It’s so beautiful. Kayak to the far end of lower Goose Pond and go through the passage to Upper Goose Pond. Take a picnic and find a place along the shore and, if you’re lucky, you may be able to picnic on the little island. You won’t be disappointed!
