From Tourist to Townperson

Only in the Berkshires can you enjoy the best of both worlds: big-city caliber museums, restaurants and performing arts, as well as quaint country living, all set against a breathtaking natural backdrop.

Many of the qualities that make the Berkshires a great place to visit also make the area a wonderful place to live.

From leaf-peeping and apple-picking in the fall, to skiing on snow-covered mountains through the winter, to hiking in uncut forests and fields of wildflowers in the spring, the Berkshires offers outdoor activities for every season. And don’t be surprised to encounter wildlife, from raccoons and foxes to deer and rabbits. While just hours from the cultural centers of Boston and New York City, the Berkshires has its own first-class art museums, galleries, historical treasures, theaters, dance groups and music venues.

So, if you find yourself coming back to the Berkshires again and again, consider purchasing a second home here. Or, become one of the area’s friendly permanent residents!

From ski chalets to lakeside retreats to a quaint home in one of the Berkshires’ charming villages, there are innumerable options available to the real estate buyer. Whatever your style (and budget), you’re sure to find something that suits you. Contact one of the real estate or mortgage companies in this guide for more information.
