Overview

Great Barrington Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom

Welcome to our Schoolhouse Cottage located in the heart of the Berkshires. Set in front of the ledges of Warner Mountain, this historic home was originally a three room schoolhouse until the late 1920's and the development of the regional school system. It then passed through two owners and was finally purchased in 1953 by a family who lived there for many years. Now updated, the cottage has become a peaceful 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage with all the comforts of home.

Located on the side of Butternut Ski Resort, this property is under half a mile to the resort entrance, making it extremely convenient for skiers. Jiminy Peak and Catamount Mountain are also a short drive for skiers. Tired of hitting the slopes? A five minute drive will bring you to the restaurants, theaters and shops of Great Barrington. Venture down route 7 to explore the hidden treasures in antique shops. Or call it a night and relax in your own private rental with a fully equipped kitchen and smart tv. Kids have plenty of room to play in the large front and side yards.

This cottage comfortably sleeps 3-4. Bedroom one has a queen size bed. Bedroom two has a twin bed that pulls out into two side by side mattresses, similar to a trundle and comfortable for two. Note that these may not be separated due to the design. The living room has a couch that pulls out into a double bed also comfortable for two. Towels and linens are provided.

A maximum of 5 guests are allowed, with a cleaning fee based on the number of guests.

1-2 guests...... $50

3-5 guests ..... $75

Check in is at 3:30 pm and check out is at 11:00am.

What makes this cottage unique

The unique benefit of this property is by far the privacy yet extremely close proximity to Butternut Ski Resort and the beautiful town of Great Barrington.

Perfectly well appointed cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house seemed like it was recently renovated. Incredibly clean and well kept. It had everything we needed for our stay. The owner knew that we were bringing our dog and even left us dog bowls and doggie biscuits. Very thoughtful. We will definitely stay again!

We had two children, one beginner skier and one advanced. Having a home base so close to the mountain we could give the beginner a rest and give the advanced skier as much time as she wanted on the mountain. The home had everything we needed for our family. Highly recommend it!

Perfect Butternut getaway

  • 4 of 5

I can really recommend this place to anyone wanting to be near Butternut's ski slopes as it's literally a 1 minute drive away. The cottage is small but has everything you need and suits a family of 4 perfectly.

Perfectly adorable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights in September and absolutely loved the cottage from the moment we arrived. It is clean, spacious and decorated so nicely. It was a little home away from home. The location is 3 minutes drive to main downtown area of Great Barrington. Plenty of outdoor space to enjoy a morning coffee and let our dog run around. Quietly tucked in a neighborhood, but so close to shops and restaurants. Shana was wonderful and so easy to communicate with. We plan to return again next year and would recommend to couples and families.

Perfect Berkshires HQ

  • 5 of 5

Loved this tidy, quaint and comfortable ouse and the beautiful natural setting. Bare minutes to all that Great Barrington has to offer. The owners were a delight to work with and we would definitely stay here again!

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house sits in a beautiful little yard that backs up to these large boulders and trees. Its a quick drive into town. The whole house was updated and was in great shape. We loved our stay there and hope to return next time we are in the area.
