We have been married for 24 years, and live most of the year in South Florida, where we have a textile business. We have two grown sons and are long-time vegetarians. We are animal lovers, and fans of yoga, hiking, swimming, cooking, theater, and independent films.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

After renting for two summers in Great Barrington, and partaking in the amazing cultural experiences and soaking in the natural beauty of the Berkshire Mountains, we knew we wanted a permanent retreat to return to, year-round. We can have peace and tranquility when we want it, at the same time being minutes away from great restaurants and entertainment.

We love experimenting with different hikes and bike rides, and exploring the various lakes and rivers available within minutes of leaving our property. In summers, Tanglewood is a weekly excursion. Summers also offer abundant locally grown produce. Whatever we don't grow in our garden, we can purchase from the amazing nearby markets. In winter, skiing at Catamount and Butternut is minutes away.

BY FAR, THE BEST HOUSE WE'VE RENTED IN THE BERKSHIRES!

By Far, the BEST House We've Rented in the Berkshires!
  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in this wonderful house between Christmas and New Year's. The house was perfect in EVERY way--spacious, clean, uncluttered with comfy couches, a huge master bedroom and bath (with s working jacuzzi), a modern, open kitchen, new washer and dryer, plenty of nice sheets and towels.... The house sits on a huge and private piece of land (great front and backyard) and it is only a short drive to the town of Great Barrington. The lovely owners checked in with us to make sure that everything was fine. There are no negatives here--this will be our go-to house in the Berkshires for years to come!

Owner's Response: You and your family were the perfect guests and are welcome back any time. We hope you got some use out of the sleds we left for you in the basement. Winter is fantastic in the Berkshires, but please try us in summer, when our peaches, apples, and organic garden are in full bloom!

PICTURESQUE, PEACEFUL AND PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
The house is incredible and in a great area with a spectacular view. Provided for a peaceful New Year's retreat for a small group of young professionals. After just a few hours, we decided that we wanted to make this year the first of many New Year's in Alford. The renter was kind, gave great advice and was accommodating to our schedule. Many delicious restaurants and sites to enjoy near by! Would strongly encourage any one to rent this home for a short or long stay any time of year.

Owner's Response: We love having guests like you who appreciate the house we love so much! When we wake up to that mountain view, all our cares disappear. We vicariously savored Barrington Bagels and Baba Louie's through you! You're welcome back any time.
