About Joy Simha

My husband, son, daughter and I have enjoyed wonderful weekends in our home away from home in the Berkshires. I love that all the main family action happens in one large room. We can cook dinner together while hanging on the back porch, or in the living room with the fire place lit. The kids enjoy family board games with us at home or we go for a spontaneous hike on the Appalachian Trail 1/4 mile away. We love to swim in the Green River, or at Lake Mansfield. In the evenings we enjoy Shakespeare and Company, Tanglewood and Jacob's Pillow. When I don't feel like cooking there are some wonderful local restaurants. We can choose from the eclectic (Gypsy Joint), exotic Indian (Aroma), or wholesome farm to table fare (Allium). I buy most of my produce from local farm stands and really enjoy all the Berkshire natives. We love this cabin as our home away from home. We want to share it with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Joy Simha purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Joy Simha chose Great Barrington

It's large enough for 4-8 people, but small enough for everyone to have quality time together. It's located just 1.5 miles from Butternut Ski and about a 1/4 mile from the Appalacian Trail. It's close to civilization, spas, great restaurants, stores, theatre and boutiques but secluded enough to feel like the perfect vacation spot.

What makes this cabin unique

We will allow you to bring well behaved small pets to our home. There is an additional cleaning fee and this can only be allowed after a conversation with me.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of your comfy cabin. The beds were comfortable, the couches were great for napping! We had a ping pong tournament several nights with "the kids" (24, 30 & 33).



The kitchen/family room is a wonderful size for all things social and food prep. And, once David mastered how to use the TV/remote - the world was good again-



So to sum up, it was a pleasure to use your home as we explored the Berkshires!



Thank you and all our best!

Wonderful place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 13 month old daughter, and two dogs spent six days at this beautiful home! We were provided with tons of helpful information before our arrival. The house was lovely, clean, and had a great layout! We loved the open concept, our daughter could play while we used the great kitchen! We visited The Co-Op and Meat Market for delicious meals.

The house is in a great location, not a far drive from downtown Great Barrington, Stockbridge, and Lenox but it feels like you are truly on vacation! We took a half day trip up to Charlemont to do the Berkshire East Zipline, well worth the drive!

Overall, this was a great vacation house and a wonderful area to explore!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This house is warm, welcoming and VERY user friendly. The rooms are comfortable and the entire house is well equipped inside and out. The location in the Berkshires is ideal. The owners are beyond friendly and took every extra effort to make our stay enJOYable. I highly recommend this property. The only downside to keep in mind is that despite the geographical proximity to Lake Buel, there is as best as I can detrmine, no public access to the lake except by boat ramp.

Owner's Response: Dear Elaine and Roy, We are so happy you enjoyed our home! You are welcome back anytime! We usually swim at Lake Mansfield, the Green River, Bash Bish Falls or Umpachine Falls. Lake Buel is a motor boat lake and so it's not ideal for swimming in. Thanks again for being the perfect guests, and we hope to see you again soon!

Perfect home for a family on vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is a magnificent home and had everything you could possibly need for vacation. The home is warm and cozy yet large enough for a family, it has plenty of kitchen and bath ware as well as lawn chairs and a great hammock outside. We had a great time and enjoyed the home as well as the local area. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. I hope to return again!

Perfect cabin for our family of five

  • 5 of 5
We found the cabin to be very comfortable for our three-night stay. The downstairs was nice and cool even in 90-degree weather, and the kids were thrilled to play the Wii. Joy was great to work with, and the instructions were very clear on how to operate everything, as well as where we could find stuff in the kitchen, etc. It was clean with plenty of towels and everything we needed. We'd definitely stay again next time we're visiting Great Barrington.

Awesome rental right in the heart of the Bershires

  • 5 of 5
This is a perfect rental. The location is super, right near Great Barrington and all the amazing restaurants there. The house is so clean and well equipped. The back deck is a perfect place to greet the day with a relaxing breakfast outdoors. For those that love to unwind with a relaxing bath, the master bathtub is an oasis. I would highly recommend this rental.

This open floor plan invites the entire family to enjoy the kitchen, living room and dining area together. Do a puzzle, read a book, play a game or watch a movie all with a fire to keep you warm and cozy. The back porch and hammock are prime spots for reading a book or taking a nap. The whole family can enjoy the game room on the lower level. It's equipped with a WII, Foosball and there's a ping pong table in the adjacent room. You will be torn between enjoying the house and exploring all the entertainment and activities that The Berkshires have to offer. The house is 4 miles from the town of Great Barrington which has wonderful shops and restaurants to explore. Live theaters and nearby cinemas offer a great variety of entertainment. Tanglewood, Jacob's Ladder, Shakespeare & Company, Berkshire Theater Company and The Botanical Gardens are about 20 minutes away. Hiking trails are within walking distance from the house. Favorite swimming spots are a short drive. The best variety of restaurants are available. Shop for produce with local farmstands near by or at the Organic Coop or Guidos just 4 miles away. Price Chopper, K-mart & Big Y are also within 4 miles. Have a spa treatment, manicure or workout at the local hot spots. You will never be bored in The Berkshires! Our driveway allows for 4 cars or more to park. We have a carport available so that you can park in a shady dry place right underneath our oversized front porch. We have an acre yard but adjoining our back yard is continuous woods. Cook your meals in the well appointed kitchen or on the propane grill out back.

There are some wonderful farm to table restaurants near by. We will supply you with some notes of our favorite local excursions. There is also a Berkshire Hiking Book in the house for you to use in planning any nearby hikes. Monument Mountain and the nearby Appalacian trails will keep you very busy.
