Mason Hill is a celebration of everything we love about the Berkshires. Mountain views, a rushing swimmable brook, an historic restored barn and outbuildings surrounded by lush forest. Mason Hill is the perfect year-round getaway for any traveler.
Originally a working farm in 1815, the historic Mason Hill is a wondrous getaway in the heart of the Berkshires. Situated on 8 acres, the original farmhouse is still located on the property with the adjoining post and beam barn fully renovated into a rustic yet well tended living space. The barn home features a fully modern and equipped gourmet kitchen with a dual fuel oven and a large comfortable living room and bar area. The adjacent large bedroom also accommodates an extensive library. The home includes a full bath and shower, laundry facilities and an outdoor cedar- lined shower with a view of the Berkshire sky. One queen bed and one bunk in the bedroom; 2 single beds in a semi-private sleeping area enclosed by the historic indoor stable off the living room, and one double bed in a semi-private sleeping area adjacent to the kitchen. There is a large deck off the west side of the barn for casual dining or reading a book while listening to the rushing sound of Kitchen Brook--the beautiful trout stocked brook on the property. Enjoy evenings with sausages and s’mores around the large outdoor fire pit. Perfect for family summer vacations, fall foliage, winter skiing and snowmobiling, reunions and celebrations. Rental is for entire property, except the caretakers' house and adjoining studio.
