About the property

Chalet, 1 Bedroom + Den with Bed, 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 4 pp /2 couples)

The tree house has a queen-sized bed in a private bedroom with full bath and a double bed in the living room, as well as a sofabed in the living room. With its geometric, octagonal shape, this luxury rental has plenty of nooks and crannies in which to snuggle up with a new vacation read. There is an additional full bathroom off the living room, making mornings and nights a breeze for when this upscale accommodation is at capacity.

A modern wood-burning fireplace is the centerpiece of the living room, surrounded by large windows that offer vacationers stunning views of the woodlands around the tree house. The dining area off of the kitchen includes similar and equally as impressive views of the surrounding area, as grand windows are a prime feature in this luxury tree house.

A fully stocked kitchen allows guests to cook all their own meals, should they so choose, and includes a fridge, a dishwasher, and utensils. Guests will also enjoy Wi-Fi throughout the accommodation, as well as an outdoor barbecue on the patio. Linens are provided.

Location + Surroundings

Guests will find this glamping site in western Massachusetts in the Berkshire Mountains, only an eighth of a mile away from Otis Ridge, a popular, family-friendly ski area.

Great Barrington, a charming New England town, is 20 minutes away by car.

About Katherine Auleta

I'm a creative who work/live in Manhattan. We travel constantly, but love our getaways in the country when we can.

Katherine Auleta purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Katherine Auleta chose Otis

The Berkshires are an idyllic part of America. Despite being extremely 'country', this area boasts some incredible cultural experiences. Tanglewood , Jacob's Pillow, Mass Moca, and Kripalu are all top notch experiences. The artisanal food available is up to par with any big city farmers market, and nearby Great Barrington is a wonderful little city full of great shops and an independent movie theater.

What makes this chalet unique

Our house is a few hundred yards from Otis ridge ski mountain, a tiny little resort just bought and updated by Butternut. It's perfect for firsttime skiiers and children. We are also within 30 miles from the larger Butternut, Blanford, and Bosquet mountains. There is an Appalachian trailhead 8 miles from our house and wonderful hiking/swimming all nearby.

What an incredible romantic place. Totally secluded and private. The pictures don't do it justice. Make sure to bring lots of firewood because the fire is awesome. Restaurants were 25 min away which didn't bother us but something to think about. Cute ski mountain literally down the block. If you like hiking or snow shoeing tons of trails a short drive.

Beautiful nest

  • 5 of 5

This home is a truly special place nestled into the side of a hill. Starry night gazing awaits. Day trips to the best of the Berkshires are easily accessible.

Highly recommend! Peaceful, private and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Charming and cleverly designed "Treehouse" situated in a peaceful and private woodland setting. Comfortable, clean and very well maintained. Instantly felt at home. The owner is also very attentive, eager to provide information about the surrounding area and considerate (even checking in to see you things were). Located in "South County" of the Berkshires which is within close driving distance to waterfalls, wildlife sanctuaries, hiking trails, lakes... Left there determined to rent the place again in another season just to enjoy the same accommodations and surroundings during a different time of year. I loved ever minute and left rejuvenated!
