Cedar hot tub, steps from river, HarTru clay tennis court, beautiful gardens, home gym, fire pit

Located in the Berkshire Hills three hours from NYC, the idyllic River Run accommodates up to 12 guests in two separate wings of a restored farmhouse.

Just steps from the Westfield River, the sound of the water provides a serene backdrop to an already beautiful landscape, complete with a HarTru clay tennis court, cedar hot tub, and great fishing spots right out the front door.

Inside, a central large kitchen is flanked by a formal dining room – if it’s nice out, you’ll want to make use of the grill and stone patio with a full dining setup. Evenings are lovely in this area, to be followed by a hot tub session in the cedar hot tub that smells as good as it looks. Other outdoor spaces include hammocks, fire pit, and a front porch to watch sunset and listen to the sound of the river.

While you’re in town, put these local gems on your itinerary:

  • Book a tennis lesson; the owner is a pro!;
  • Sample craft beer at Sena Farm Brewery with live music and amazing craft beer in an old barn;
  • Visit America’s largest contemporary art museum, MASS MoCA, about 35 minutes away;
