What You'll Find

The northern Berkshires provide a perfect natural backdrop to a pair of Modernist homes—one a bed & breakfast—and more than 300 acres of open fields, woods, and wetlands with four miles of footpaths. And whether you’re seeking a peaceful getaway vacation in the Berkshires, or looking for a day trip to explore beautiful sculptures and architecture, Field Farm has something for everyone.

While on site, explore the exterior of the Folly, an architectural wonder of a guest house built in 1966. “The Folly,” a sculptural structure designed by Ulrich Franzen. The name comes from 18th-century English garden structures, but the design is truly modern. Cedar shingles encase a central column surrounded by undulating pinwheel-like forms that together once hosted the Bloedels’ ice skating parties.

Franzen wanted occupants to be “part of nature but also to be sheltered from it.” The bedrooms and kitchen feature overhanging “eyebrow” windows, reminiscent of a Victorian house or airplane cockpit. Inside, built-in furniture lit from below makes efficient use of the limited space.

The broad fields and uplands provide habitat for white-tail deer, coyote, and bobcats. The wetlands are home to an active beaver colony, turtles, snakes, and salamanders, as well as a wide variety of marsh-nesting birds and waders. Look for red-winged blackbirds with their scarlet epaulets, kingfishers darting and swooping above the water’s surface, and regal great blue heron stalking the shallows. Red-tailed hawks and northern harriers waft silently above the meadows.

What is now Field Farm was an agricultural property dating back to the mid-18th century, as colonists cleared the lower slopes of the Berkshires and Taconic ranges for crop fields, livestock pastures, and houses and outbuildings. Previous to European settlement, Mohican and Mohawk tribes were on this land.
