Huisregels
Deze ruimte is niet geschikt voor kinderen jonger dan 12 jaar en huisdieren, feesten en roken zijn niet toegestaan.
Breathtaking views of mountains of three states from the most gorgeous lodge in the Berkshires! See for yourself why this view was referred to as "America's Switzerland" in the 1920's. Watch the most spectacular sunset while enjoying the warmth from one of two fireplaces with your favorite person. While you feel a world away this retreat is less than 10 minutes away from MASS Moca, North Adams and an easy drive to Clark Art and local ski resorts (Jimmy Peak, Mt. Snow and Berkshire East).

De ruimte
The Wigwam Lodge @ America's Switzerland is a part of the Wigwam Western Summit which's a resort destination in the Berkshires. The resort includes a seasonal Coffeehouse/Gift Shop, 4 seasonal cabins, The Bear's Den (the apartment in the lower level of the Wigwam Lodge) and of course the Wigwam Lodge. The resort was built by the Mansfield sisters in 1914 with a gift shop, a 5 level look out tower (removed in 1985), 10 rustic cabins and the Lodge. The Lodge was built in the 1940's first as a residence for the owners, then converted to a Tea Room for tourists and cabin guests after WWII.

Abandoned for nearly a decade, Lea bought the property in 2018 with a vision to restore the Wigwam to its former glory.

The greatest transformation of the Lodge took two years (2018-2020). Turning the Lodge into their dream home, Lea and her partner Wayne created an open floor plan, restored the two sided stone fireplace and renovated the kitchen and the bathrooms. They furnished the home with designer touches to create a beautiful and comfortable home to complement the stunning view from the living/dining room windows.

The main floor of the Wigwam Lodge will take your breath away. The kitchen has exposed beams, white cabinets, butcher block countertops and all upgraded SS appliances. The live edge breakfast bar is great to sit at while sipping your morning coffee and look at undercast above North Adams. The double sided stone fireplace is a main feature of the retreat and it's wood burning on one side (the living room side) and gas on the other (the dining room side) so you're able to enjoy the warm of the fireplace and the feeling of being in Switzerland anytime.

Enjoy a winter hike in our private summit or a longer hike to Spruce Hill (The Hoosac Range Trail). Enjoy the outdoor firepit and cook on the grill (weather permitting) and play outside distanced from the rest of the world! You have arrived!

Toegang voor gasten
Guest can use the entire house, deck and firepit.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
Although the lodge is ideal for events because of its sizes, wrap around deck, outdoor space and view..etc, no events or partying is allowed. This property is also NOT pet friendly. The Lodge is perched on the Western Summit of the Hoosac Range Mountains and the distant view of mountains of three states and in the valley the small city of North Adams is simply stunning. One thing to note : The Bear's Den (another Airbnb rental) is in the lower level of the Lodge (separate entrance). Both units have reserved parking spaces. If you need more than one parking space please park only one car in front of the lodge and the additional cars in the parking lot.

The Wigwam Lodge @ America's Switzerland is located at the Wigwam Western Summit on top of the Hoosac Range off the famous Mohawk Trail. The Wigwam is a historic property and was the first retail/gift shop that was opened in 1914. There are 4 rustic cabins on the 4 acre property in addition to the Wigwam Coffeehouse (the old gift shop) and the Retreat. It's a winter wonderland at the Retreat from November to April so be sure to prepare appropriately. Located right on the Hoosac Range Trail, you don't need to drive anywhere to enjoy snow shoeing, cross country skiing or winter hiking.

I've retired from working in the corporate and non profit world to focus on my second act (eco tourism) in the Berkshires. In 2018 I met the man of my dreams (Wayne) and together we bought the Wigwam Western Summit which had been abandoned for more than a decade. We renovated the Wigwam Coffeehouse in 2018, the 4 cabins in 2019. During Covid since we couldn't open the coffee house we turned our energy to completely renovate the Wigwam Lodge. We love spending time outdoors whether it's hiking, running or snowshoeing. People say nature is food for the soul and we are constantly hungry for more of it! In 2021 we are working with the local community (local guides and artists) to launch the Wigwam Woodland Experiences. Guests can enjoy guided hikes, History walk of the Hoosac Tunnel, guided snow shoe adventure, North Adams Art Walk (with an artist)..etc. We also rent snow shoes in the winter since we get so much now! We love hosting and are available to provide recommendations to make your stay more enjoyable!

Tijdens je verblijf
From May to October we operate the Wigwam Western Summit Coffeehouse which is a short walk away and we live nearby. In the winter we plow the driveway and salt the deck while preserving most of the snow for the view. Guests are welcome to use the firewood provided next to the fireplace or use the gas fireplace. Although this retreat has numerous beds and can accommodate many more people, we would prefer to rent it to a couple who wish to spend quiet getaways rather than using it as a party house. This is an ideal retreat for someone who wish to visit Mass Moca, Clark Art, ski or use it as a base for winter hikes or cross country skiing. It's a delight to cook in this well stocked gourmet kitchen. All basic supplies, utensils, bakeware are provided. Breakfast items provided for stays of 3 days or more (bread, butter, eggs, cheese, oil). Fresh coffee beans, coffee grinder and a pour over station to make our famous "Pour Over Coffee" with instructions will be provided. For tea lovers we will provide assorted tea bags from our coffeehouse. While the Coffeehouse is in season guests can order breakfast to be delivered to the Retreat in picnic baskets.
