Holiday home in the Berkshires; Becket, Massachusetts, USA

Are you interested in visiting New England? Contact us and see what we can work out. We are both retired and very flexible in terms of time. We often do non simultaneous exchanges. Two or three week exchanges are possible in the fall.. Weekend exchanges in New York City, anytime, would be of interest but we are open to other adventures as well!

Regardless of the season in the beautiful Berkshires of western Massachusetts, there is so much to see and do throughout the region. Visit this beautiful area of New England during the autumn for spectacular fall foliage as well as the many cultural attractions. The location of our home is within 20 minutes of Stockbridge, Lenox and Great Barrington.

During the summer, you can  take advantage of the Tanglewood Music Festival, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, theatres, museums, restaurants, shopping, golf, tennis and many outdoor activities. Canyon Ranch and the Kripalu Center are within 15 minutes of our home. There are many art galleries in the nearby towns. Or just relax on our screened porch and enjoy our garden in the woods!
