Great Barrington Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Secluded high on a mountainside and surrounded by thousands of acres of state park and conservation land, The Pod is a rustic early 1970's timber and glass octagon set on a concrete pedestal. Decks on four sides with forest or distant mountain views. One stream runs within 15 feet of the master bedroom, a second is about 100 yards from the house. Our closest neighbor's home is about 150 yards away and invisible through the woods; there are very few homes in the area.

Great food, culture, entertainment, and shopping are all within easy striking distance: Downtown Great Barrington, 7 miles; Stockbridge, 15 miles; Tanglewood/Lenox, 21 miles; Hudson NY, 23 miles; Salisbury CT, 15 miles.

Possible Caveats: We purchased The Pod from it's original owner 7 years ago. It's clean, complete, and with all systems in excellent working order, but the place could use some paint -- we're working on it -- getting better all the time. Lots of stairs; may be difficult for those with mobility issues or small children. No air conditioning.

Keywords: Berkshires, Great Barrington, cabin, mountain, vacation rental.

Your fatigue is welcome here

  • 5 of 5
The pod house made for a incredibly relaxing get away, but when we wanted to go hiking, shopping or driving around the beautiful Berkshires all we wanted was accessible. The house is wonderful, fully stocked with anything a couple or a family would want. Even in July we needed to take the evening chill off, so the wood stove and fire pit were most welcome. You really don't have to leave the pod house. You may not want to once you settle in! The view is breath taking. There is a small stream right outside the bedrooms and off the back deck that is mesmerizing. Our week there could not have been better. We will be back and hope you will consider renting the pod house, too. Oh, and the owners were a pleasure.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for two weeks in July while my kids attended day camp at Hi-Rock. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, found it to be clean, well-organized and had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and dressed with fresh smelling cotton sheets. The house is ideally nestled into a hillside with valley views that frame the sunrise. The wraparound terrace is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the view but there is also a back patio for the afternoon sun. Lying in bed at night with the wall to ceiling windows is like sleeping in front of a diorama. It is an excellent base to kayak, hike, shop, swim and spa. I did all of that but would have been content to just sit and enjoy the view.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Pod with our dogs and had a wonderful time. The backyard is a mountain, with hiking trails to explore. The place is close enough to Great Barrington to drop in for lunch or get some local food to cook on the grill. The whole house is windows, and the views are all beautiful. It's secluded, and the nearest neighbor is across one of the streams that runs down the side of the mountain. The neighbor was really friendly too, telling us how to get to the trails. The location is only a couple miles from great hiking spots, swimming holes, waterfalls, scenic views, farm to table restaurants just about all of the nice things in the berkshires. The house itself is well taken care of, and we had a really great time staying there.

A Fantastic Mountain Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
The Pod house is a wonderfully secluded little treehouse in the mountains. My husband and I stayed there during July and enjoyed the best that the Berkshires had to offer: art offerings, nature, and we even found wild blueberry patches! The owners are very easy to deal with and the place is cute and comfortable. It is far enough from the crowds to get away from it all, yet close enough to town to get a nice dinner.

Our week surrounded by mountains, state parks and great Berkshire towns.

  • 5 of 5
My significant other and I truly enjoy the tranquil Berkshire environment. Staying at the Pod House only enhanced our experiences. Within minutes of the Pod, you will find state parks, swimming areas and great hiking paths. You are also only minutes away from interesting towns and other cultural institutions. Just have your coffee or tea on the deck while viewing breathtaking views as the sun rises is a sight to behold. Even while being in the kitchen or living room the outside views are right there with you. Through the windows of both bedrooms your sights of trees and nature are everywhere. The owners of the Pod House were very maticulous in ensuring that there guests were supplied with all the "tools of the trade" in the kitchen and elsewhere in the house. Obviously, by reading this review, you can tell we enjoyed ourselves staying at the Pod very much.

The Pod provides a lovely, woodsy
setting with expansive views. The house
is clean and cozy. The owners are easy
to work with. While a bit of a trip to
the Lenox, Stockbridge end of things,
their spot is close to Great Barrington
and some of the interesting Columbia
County towns.
