A private and centrally situated apartment suite within an original, restored Carriage House is a suitable respite in the beautiful Berkshires Hills. Here you can relax in an area filled with cultural activities:such as Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, Barrington Stage, Stockbridge, Mahaiwe & Williamstown Theaters, the Choral or Bluegrass Fesivals., classical music concerts, art shows, auctions, skiing, nature, hiking, etc. The Carriage House, located near town, is set back from the road, privately shielded by trees and flowering plants seasonally. Rejuvenate next door at Body and Soul for a selection of massages or facials.
Light and comfortable, the private apartment is in the owner-occupied bldg. and consists of a living/dining area, small but equipped kitchenette, bedroom (comfortable queen mattress) & bath, 2 closets, a private French door entrance from deck with table and chairs for outdoor eating or relaxing. Efforts to maintain environmentally clean space preclude use of strong perfumes and scented items or smoking. Suitable for 1 or 2 people. The Carriage House is totally accessible to all Berkshire activities and especially those in Gt. Barrington with many top-notch restaurants, Mahaiwe Theatre performances, the Triplex movie house, shops, grocery and organic food stores. It's 3 to 4 minutes to center of town by car or a pleasant 15 minute walk.
Shed your tensions, rest, enjoy a beautiful area & rejuvenate!
We enjoyed our 4 days here very much. Very clean and comfortable, luxurious bed, ample bathroom, relaxing living room. Yes, the kitchen is tight, but I've stayed in larger vacation homes that were not nearly as well supplied. Very convenient spot - for getting a paper in the morning, for the restaurants in Great Barrington, for all the great events going on in the Berkshires, and, especially convenient for us, as a starting point for bike rides. Lois couldn't have been more gracious. Even her dog and cat are friendly!
We had the pleasure of staying 4 nights at this cozy, charming apartment and did not want to leave. This spot feels secluded but is close to anything needed, a perfect combination. Lovely home and grounds.
This is an ideal location for fun and leisure in the Berkshires. The Carriage House is a charming and romantic getaway with all of the amenities of home. Attention to detail and a clean environment made our stay very enjoyable!
This was a wonderful spot for a few days of R+R! The apartment was warm and cozy, clean and felt like home- without the to do list. For a last minute get-away, I decided I wanted a place that was private and quaint where I could completely relax and this totally worked! Lois was wonderful, warm and welcoming! Highly reccomend this comfortable, centrally located slice of Great Barrington!
My wife and I were very pleased at our weeks stay at this vacation rental. The apartment is very close to the center of Great Barrington, yet it is secluded and gives the feeling of being in a rural setting. We found the apartment to be comftorable and clean with the bonus of a huge patio to relax during the day. Our landloard (Lois) was very accomodating in providing extra chairs and lightiing fixtures. We look forward to visiting once again.
While it is true that the rental unit is located near town and is set back from the road (hence the one star), my visit was extremely unpleasant. I woke up to find animal droppings covering the sink and stovetop. The owner has not responded to me since I left so I cannot report that the pest control problem has been addressed.
