About Katherine Auleta
My husband are bi-coastal working in film and photography.
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 surrounded by 7 private acres, set back in the woods, but still very easy to access from a main Rd, and a short walk or drive into the town of Otis. Our house is a few hundred yards from Otis ridge ski mountain, a tiny little ski hill perfect for first time skiers. There is an Appalachian trailhead 8 miles from our house and wonderful hiking/swimming all nearby.

Our Favorite Spot So Far
This is easily one if the coolest houses we have stayed in for all of our travels. To be able to listen during the night and hear nothing but peace and quiet was completely serene. The house is beautiful, the space just flows. Thank you for letting us stay here, and for the memories we made in the process.
A very special place!
The Berkshire Tree house was beautiful. The Hosts were very quick to respond to our correspondance and made us feel very welcome. They made the special occassion my husband and I were celebrating even more so.
So happy you enjoyed! Love to have you guys back anytime. :-)
Like being in a beautiful treehouse
We loved this house. It is cozy but feels expansive because of the windows all around. It is very private but close to several towns. It is just a fun place to come back to after being out and about. Love this house!
Sweet house. Very private, very clean and nicely appointed.
Easy to get to. Owner made sure we arrived and had what we needed. Instructions were also very clear.
Heaven among the tree tops!
Peaceful, comfortable, creative and ever so welcoming this tree top wonder has it all. It's a gem in the woods and only minutes from the oiutside world! It's a keeper on our list!
Awesome gem of a home.
A great hideaway with everything you will need to feel right at home.
