About the neighbourhood
We are located in the small town of Alford, just down the hill from the center in the house of my grandmother, Susan Andersen. The views in our little valley are stunning. We are on an old farm, a dairy farm many years ago, but we no longer farm. We have fields and woods, perfect for hiking; the Alford Brook goes through our property. There is wildlife to see - deer, fox, turkeys, coyotes, and great birdwatching. We are located within 15 miles of Tanglewood, the Norman Rockwell Museum, and many other Berkshire locations. We are also close the Catamount, Butternut, and Bousquet ski areas.
