We have been living in the Berkshires for almost 20 years. We have two sons in college.

E. David purchased this cottage in 2012

Recently a friend who renovated this house and offered it to us. We fell in love with the gorgeous view, the location on 'Hill of Great Barrington' and decided to buy it.

Our next decision was to rent it out when we can. Guests who have stayed at our house say the picture do not do it justice. It is difficult to describe how wonderful it is. Please read our reviews.

Short drive to Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, Shakespeare & Co. etc. 10 minute walk to downtown Great Barrington which is home to many delightful restaurants, shops, galleries, and theatre venues (Mahaiwe Performing Arts & Triplex Movie Theater) Three minute walk to Lake Mansfield- a summer favorite for swimming (lifeguard on site), kayaking, picnicking, fishing hiking & biking. Walk to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning, listen to a concert on the town green (during the summer), or just relax on the gazebo with a glass of wine. During summer there are many activities & events every day for people of all ages. During the fall, the view from the house is even more stunning, during the winter the house you can visit nearby skiing resorts such as Butternut, Catamount. Our property is 8 mins drive to Butternut Ski area (3.8 miles), and 15 mins drive to Catamount ski area (8miles).

Perfect for a girls weekend!

I stayed at the property on January 24-26 for the weekend with 8 other girls. The house had everything we needed! It was warm and cozy and we had the best time cooking and snuggling in front of the fire after skiing at Butternut. The house was a mile from town and made it easy for us to go out Saturday night. We had so much fun we want to make this an annual trip!

Thanks for everything!

We spent a winter long weekend at this beautiful home and had the most wonderful weekend. There were 2 families, each with 2 young children, and the set up was perfect for us. The view from the kitchen overlooking the mountains was breathtaking. And the location couldn't have been more perfect. We were near skiing, skating, swimming, mini golf, bowling, family friendly restaurants and more. We are already talking about renting it again next year!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you and your young children enjoyed the property and what our town has to offer. Looking at their footsteps in the snow, it seemed like they had a lot of fun playing with the snow and sledding! Keep us in mind for future vacations.

We recently hosted a family weekend at this nicely appointed home in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Although we had a large group of 10, everyone was comfortable, from sleeping arrangements, to community space. The well-designed and well-stocked kitchen was perfect for the two home cooked meals we prepared as we watched the sunset change the colors of the foliage from the awesome view the home affords.
The village of Great Barrington is very nice, with many shops for woman and children. A trip to West Stockbridge and the Red Lion Inn is also worth the time, the restaurant is outstanding.
We will definitely consider this residence again and recommend it unconditionally.

Family Retreat

My husband and I looked for a serene and comfortable home for our family (including children and grandchildren) for the weekend before our son's wedding. This home was everything that was advertised. The scenery is beautiful and we spent many happy hours together in the screened-in porch. The owners, Ephrat and Benny, met us at the house when we got there and helped us settle in. Within minutes, one of our grandchildren was helping Ephrat water her beautiful garden. The fire pit and wood provided by the owners made for a nice Saturday night activity with the children. The canoe was an added bonus and we spent a lovely evening taking turns in it on the lake down the road.
We highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Shachar,
We are so happy to read how you enjoyed our property. It was an honor to host you and your wonderful family. We hope that your son's wedding went well. Mazal Tov to everyone!

Great home in a great location

This is a beautiful, cozy home in a great location that is walk-to-town. The owners were a pleasure to work with throughout the process. Ephrat was very responsive by email and phone on any questions that we had. The linens, towels, crockery and cutlery were plentiful for 12 people and there was lots of room for everyone to sleep comfortably.

The view from the house is spectacular and we spent several hours sitting on the patio overlooking the mountains. We would come back to this home again and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a great, relaxing getaway in the Berkshires.
