Where you’ll be

Sheffield, Massachusetts, United States

We live fifteen minutes from Great Barrington, MA and have quick and easy access to area private schools (Salisbury, Berkshire and Hotchkiss). The setting is rural with sweeping western views. Many wonderful walks, hikes and bike routes are minutes away. We are also five minute drive from Twin Lakes, Salisbury, CT. Definitely a destination for hikers, bikers, birders and most especially gardeners. Skiing is 20 - 25 minutes away at either Catamount or Butternut ski areas. Cultural institutions are well within reach including Tanglewood, Norfolk Music Festival, Music Mountain, Mahawie Theater, Norman Rockwell Museum and more. Big Elm Brewery and Berkshire Mountain Distillery are located just down the road. Finally Guido's Marketplace (best market around) is located 10 minutes away.

I am a nature loving person with a great interest in the outdoors especially plants. I am director of education for a botanical garden in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts and have a deep interest in gardening especially growing food organically. I am married to a wonderful man who makes his living as an artist and partime director of an NGO educating poor girls in Nepal. We have two beautiful grown daughters, Tibetan by birth and adopted from Nepal. Its time to see more of the world as my job starts to wind down. I travel light..usually with backpack....... Having been a NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership Shcool, Lander, Wyoming) instructor for over ten years my motto is "Leave no Trace".......... Elisabeth
