Fifteen minutes to Berkshire East for skiing and zip line tours or Zoar Outdoor and Crabapple Rafting for rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, zip line tours, etc. Kenneth Dubuque State Forest is a 5 minutes walk. Good for hiking, biking, horseback riding, xc skiing and snowmobiling. Drag a lawn chair over to the pond, fetch a glass of wine and watch the antics of geese, ducks and maybe a beaver while the sun sets beyond the pond. The babbling brook has places where kids can play in an old swimming hole, catch minnows, and build rock dams. House sleeps 8-two bedrooms with double beds, one with a queen bed, and bunk beds and a fold out couch in the basement for young people. New equipnment and furnishings: House has a new Energy Star washer, dryer, dishwasher and new carpeting in the living-room and dining-room. Wi-Fi satellite internet is available and reaches the back yard and the nearby pond and brook areas. We have a new gas grill, a small fire pit and a folding picnic table along with many outdoor chairs. The Unique Benefits of this House: What is unique about this area is its quiet. No stores, no street lights, no stop signs. But, there are plenty of birds, turkeys, moose, bear, deer, rabbits, hawks. You get the idea I think. The stars are very bright at night and the brook can be heard from far-away. Trees, stone walls, ponds abound. Hawley's population is a whopping 320 hearty souls. Just sitting and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature is rejuvenating. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: C0084671290More

We needed a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of the city and we found the perfect place. Flight’s End was secluded, had a lot of empty space for our four legged friends to explore, a pond across the street, a babbling brook,...More

We booked Flight's End for our recent mini vacation and were extremely pleased. The house is definitely a place where people lived and grew old, and had a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. There is a nice brook on the property and a pond just across the...More

Thanks for the review. We are in the country and broadband and cell service have not reached us. Most people come to get away from their connected life and just chill.

About the neighbourhood
Country setting with lots of outdoor stuff to do. Skiing, hiking, biking, three state forests, Deerfield River, kayaking, tubing, zip-lining, fishing. Shelburne Falls with the Bridge of Flowers, the Trolley Museum, the Glacial Potholes and of course boutique shops and restaurants. You can take a 4.3 mile walk around the 'square' and never see a car or even another person. Local markets are available in the neighboring towns of Ashfield, Charlemont and Shelburne Falls. Side Hill Farm (yogurt, grass fed beef, etc) and Headwater Cider are half way around the 'square' (1-2 miles).
