BERKSHIRE SKI GETAWAY!

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. Recently renovated it is now 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.

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.

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.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
This is a great find in Great Barrington. You could walk to Butternut, and it's mintues away from Main Street. We had plenty of room for 5 of us, and had a wonderful picnic in the backyard (which is big enough for a whiffle ball game). Overall a great deal, great location, and great owner who was very responsive to our emails.

Owner's Response: Dear Jodi,
So glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Thank you for leaving a review, we appreciate all feedback. I did want to check in and see if you had any suggestions on what would have made your stay more enjoyable. Aside from the cable, which I hope gave you no further difficulties, is there anything else that would have improved your stay? Thank you so much.

Kind Regards,
Shana

Rental as promised - Great for Butternut skiing

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is exactly as it appears in the pictures. Very clean, and had what we needed for a 3-day weekend. Wi-Fi and TV worked great. Super close to Butternut, plus during peak times, you drive up to the mountain's entrance from the opposite direction of everyone else -- no long traffic line to get in!! The property was shoveled and maintained, even during the heavy snow we had one day. The kitchen's appliances, pots and pans were perfect for us to cook when we wanted, and restaurants are very close, and have take-out, too! Only note that the 2nd bedroom with the twin bed extends into a larger bed as described -- that is exactly what it does -- it allows for the 2 mattresses to be side to side -- our kids worked it out, but the beds do not separate from each other. The cottage did fit our family of 4, along with our pups and their crates. Shana was flexible and responsive to our requests when we decided on her rental cottage.

The perfect spot for skiing!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at School House Cottage with our two children for Christmas. The cottage was perfect for us because we planned to go to Butternut for skiing every day and it is under 1 minute away. I would highly recommend it as a cozy, well maintained, very clean and convenient place to stay. Everything was exactly as described on the website and there is a loverly walk up through the woods behind the cottage for excellent views over the mountains.
