COVID-19 STUFF:

*All bookings subject to COVID-19 regulations by the state of Massachusetts.

*Until circumstances change, all guests from out-of-state are asked to observe a 14-day self-quarantine while at Brooksong.

*Cleaning staff is working double to sanitize. I try to block 2 days off between each booking for safety reasons.

Part of this bright, sprawling property was built in 1866 as a schoolhouse. Its historic charm now includes all the updated comforts of home. Welcome to Brooksong!

The space
Brooksong is full of historical flourishes and quirks, but the house has been completely renovated with comfort in mind. Play pool, sip cocktails at the antique 1920s bar, sing songs around the outdoor fire pit, cook dinner in the huge kitchen or grill on the porch in the sun. Lovingly maintained, Brooksong has the ideal combination of classic and modern decor. Skiers and hikers will love the surrounding area, which is incredibly picturesque. Wahconah Falls State Park is just up the road, and there are several places nearby to hit the slopes, including Jiminy Peak, about 20 minutes away.

I work hard to make sure my business doesn’t endanger my guests, cleaners or the local population during a pandemic, and if you choose to stay with us, I hope you will help me keep it that way. The good thing is that safety and enjoyment at Brooksong require minimal effort! We have few neighbors and they are separated from the property by farmland and woods. Our water comes from a well. Self-sustaining farms are within walking distance. The nearest hospital is BMC, about 12 minutes away by car. There are many stores nearby to get supplies, such as Costco and Home Depot; as well as grocery delivery in the area. We provide face masks and gloves, if it’s absolutely necessary to venture into town—but not much should take you away from the property. The WiFi at Brooksong is excellent, and all the infrastructure necessities of the house are constantly maintained. My house manager is on call 24/7 for any problems.

Honestly, there are few better places to get away from crowded areas and ride out the current situation than Brooksong. We will do our best to make sure you feel safe and comfortable during this stressful time.

Location

Dalton, Massachusetts, United States

In addition to Brooksong's five acres of land, the Berkshires have many other beautiful woods and meadows to hike in. Wahconah Falls State Park is just up the road, and the dramatic waterfall is definitely worth checking out. There are several places nearby to hit the slopes; the closest, Jiminy Peak, is about 25 minutes away. For some culture, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art is a half hour's drive from the house. The town of Dalton has some quaint restaurants and shops, and the Berkshires are renowned for their array of adorable villages and hamlets to browse. Pittsfield is about 10 minutes away and has all the strip mall options you could ask for: Stop & Shop, Home Depot, Target, etc. In other words, you'll be secluded but not cut off from civilization. Holiday Farms is a great organic farm just up the road and there are many similar establishments nearby, so I highly recommend trying some local meat, dairy and produce.
