Golden hill farm

Our VRBO Berkshire vacation rental is a charming historic family farmhouse with lots of room and comfort surrounded by 22 acres. Built in 1782, our farm was famous for breeding Plymouth Barred Rock chickens. About one hundred years ago, one of these barred rock roosters won the grand prize of $2000.00 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, that’s a lot of cash for the 1800’s! Many other grand prizes were won as well, and thus our rental unit has a built in wall safe that was used back then to hold the winnings (we don’t have the combination to the safe, but we have left a stethoscope there if you would like to try to crack the code.). 

Owned by the Bradley family, the farm was one of the first and largest dwellings in the area. To this day, the street is named Bradley St. after them. The river runs through our little valley, which sometimes brings bald eagles, ospreys and great blue herons migrating through. There also is a train track that brings an old fashioned freight train through, and you can even book a ride on the  Berkshire Scenic Railway, which runs in the summer and early fall.

Whether you would like to visit the Berkshires for everything it has to offer, or are planning a wedding, reunion or other special event and need a place for your family to stay, we would love to talk with you more about how we can help. Please look at our pictures, and check our links. Feel free to contact us with any questions, we’d love to hear from you.
