We bought this house as a vacation home in 2005. The same year that our twins were born.

Noriko and Dale purchased this house in 2005

We wanted a country get away that was close enough for a weekend away from our home. We wanted a place that was quiet, yet close enough to the town center. We also wanted a home that was driving distance to all of our favorite destinations such as Tanglewood, Lake Mansfield and Butternut ski resort.

We loved the fact that it had a three season porch that helped us experience the outdoors without actually being outdoors. We also loved the downstairs entertainment area and wet bar.

Winter getaway

  • 4 of 5
Place was as described and the right size for a family of 5. Comfortable and located within short driving distance of Great Barrington center and Ski Butternut. We enjoyed the fireplace and pool/pingpong table in the finished basement. Owners were very responsive and they have a caretaker in town if needed.

Spacious, convenient, relaxing

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for a weekend with my boyfriend and the house is very spacious and well-kept, so it would be fun to go back again with a big group of friends to take advantage of the space and amenities. It's very close to town, where we found some good restaurants and a lot of great antique stores. It's also near a pretty lake (although the weather was not quite nice enough for a swim). I would recommend this for anyone looking to get away to a nice, clean house for a relaxing time in nature and for exploring a great town. It would also be fun in the winter for a skiing vacation, there's a great big fireplace.

Comforts of home

  • 4 of 5
The description is accurate and the house is very clean and well-maintained. The area is very quiet and relaxing although very convenient. The location is excellent, close to Great Barrington where we went for restaurants, shopping, and the movies. It's a short drive to Tanglewood and Stockbridge. The beds are very comfortable. The screened porch is delightful for meals and relaxing. We would recommend this to anyone who wants reasonably-priced accommodations.

The Berkshires is a perfect four season getaway for people who enjoy sports, nature, the arts to total relaxation. The Berkshires offers ample opportunity for hikers, skiers and golfers with various mountain ranges for summer climbing as well as winter skiing (Jiminy Peak, Butternut, Cranwell golf resort). People who enjoy the arts can choose between Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Berkshire Opera and Theatre Festivals. While others who want to get away from it all can visit Kripalu or Canyon Ranch for yoga or for spa get away. Great for families with young children with petting farms (Ioka Valley Farm), strawberry, apple and blueberry picking, swimming lake (Lake Mansfield) as well as the summer highlight of the David Grover Band at the Great Barrington Town Hall.
