Berkshire County affordable homes is one of the most desirable vacation home destinations on the East Coast, attracting residents from New York City and Boston and points in between. The proximity of Berkshire County to the adjoining New York towns of New Lebanon, Canaan, Austerlitz and Hillsdale adds to their draw.
Berkshire County affordable homes attract second home owners from New York and Boston going back to the gilded age with the development of huge “cottages.” Many of these cottages have been transformed into inns or condominium complexes. The Boston Symphony’s summer concerts at Tanglewood have help with a rebirth of the “Berkshires” and the towns of Stockbridge, Lenox and Great Barrington have become centers of summer activity.
A large number of retired persons own Berkshire County affordble homes or condominiums and stay in the Berkshires for the summer or longer. As a result a large stock of affordble and condominiums is available in these areas. Some of the towns in the Berkshires remain sparsely populated, but Pittsfield is seeing a resurgence and the Town of Richmond is sought after by vacationing and permanent residents.
