Overview

Great Barrington House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 bath, & a pool. Near downtown Great Barrington, Kids friendly.

Sweet cozy house with plenty of room for large groups coming to enjoy the treasures of the Berkshires. Nestled behind Monument Mountain in Great Barrington. 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a spacious kitchen, living room, TV room, game room with pool/Ping-Pong table & two cars garage. Located within a neighborhood friendly to children.

During the summer it is wonderful to swim in the large pool (18' x 33' feet) and relax with a glass of wine on the big deck surrounding the pool or the porch attached to the living room. The gardens and the goldfish pond offer many areas where you can relax, and hang out. During the winter, guest can enjoy the natural heat of a powerful pellet stove that heats up the whole house (in addition to central oil heat). Short drive to Tanglewood, Kripalu Yoga Center, Jacobs Pillow, Shakespeare & Co. etc. 5-7 minute drive to downtown Great Barrington which is home to many delightful restaurants, shops, galleries, and theatre venues. Nearby Butternut Ski and Catamount Ski, as well as, golf and spa resorts. Short drive to Lake Mansfield, and the larger Stockbridge Bowl Lake. Both are summer favorites for swimming (life guard on site), kayaking, picnicking, fishing, hiking & biking. Green River fishing location is close-by.

The property is located near a beautiful part of the Housatonic River. It is always a delight to take a walk (or bike) along the river towards Berkshire Mountain bakery which is always open and offers a wide array of delicious non-yeast baked goods. During summer there are many activities & events every day in the Berkshires suitable to all ages. Guests also like to visit our Farmers Market in downtown on Saturday mornings, or to hear a concert on the town green (Fridays & Saturdays). Owners supply a comprehensive guide to all the local attractions, including a guide to kid's friendly activities and attractions.

The house has two floors. The upper floor has a living room with two reclining sofas, a TV and entertainment center and an attached large porch with a gas grill.

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Ephrat's home for a girl's weekend. The house was clean, well-equipped (kitchen supplies, hair dryer, iron, etc.), and the perfect size for us. It was easy to access, and Ephrat provided clear instructions for how to get into the house. She was accessible by email for our entire stay. There is plenty of space for air mattresses, if needed. I would definitely recommend this house!

Peaceful in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5
My family of 2 generations thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home and neighborhood in Great Barrington, Berkshires. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed. I noticed the extra personal touch of providing certain supplies and toiletries which are normally not found in vacation rentals. We were all able to find places of interest and my daughter and I experienced a rare treat when the "Beach Boys" performed at Tanglewood. The private pool was a luxury. The owner was very responsive to any needs, questions or advice. A great time was had by all. Thank you Ephrat for all of your efforts. We have found a new favorite vacation spot.

Nice place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home for a family vacation with our grandchildren. Accomodated three families without tripping over each other. The house is in great repair and everything you need is provided. Within 15 minutes of most southern Berkshires attractions. Taft Farm, down the road a short walk, will entertain your young ones with its farm animals. Guthrie Center is nearby, and Tanglewood 15 minutes down the road. Great Barrington, Stockbridge, West Stockbridge, Lenox, Housatonic, and Egremont are all close by. The above ground pool, manicured lawn, and fire pit provide excellent outdoor activities.

Special Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5
My family (2 adults 3 kids ages 4/7/9) and another family (2 adults and 2 kids ages 7/8) rented this beautiful property on weekends for the winter ski season from December 22, 2013 through March 22, 2014. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house conventiently located near Butternut (5 minutes) and Catamount (15 minutes) mountains. The house is also conveniently located near Great Barrington (3 minutes) and has walking/hiking trails adjacent to the property.

The house has 1 master bedroom with a full bath and 3 additional bedrooms (2 on the 2nd floor and 1 on the ground floor). In addition, the house has a roomy / open kitchen with a breakfast bar, full kitchen table and an attached smaller adjacent room for additional dining space, kids seating area, board game room, etc. Lastly the house has a decent size family room upstairs with wrap around couch seating and an additional den/TV room downstairs which also has a pool table. We found the layout of the house to work nicely with our rental situation. It allowed the adults some space when making dinner or just talking while the kids tended to utilize the extra room near the kitchen or the downstairs space to play games, listen to music, watch movies, etc. The house has multiple heating sources including a pellet stove and oil heat. We found the air flow very comfortable.

The owners were very friendly and accomodating to any requests we had. In addition, we found the neighbors to be very friendly.

We've become very fond of Great Barrington and its surrounding and this home provided a great comfortable place to relax and wind down after a day at the mountain.

We spent a whole week at this beautiful home and had the most wonderful time

  • 5 of 5
We spent a whole week at this beautiful home and had the most wonderful time. There were 2 families, each with 2 young children, and the set up was perfect for us. The children enjoyed the playroom, the games on TV, and pool table. They were having so much fun we did not feel they were there. The location couldn't have been more perfect. The house is well depicted by the pictures. It is very spacious, well kept, and very clean. The owners were wonderful to work with; they were very responsive via e-mail, and welcomed us with a big smile as they showed us the house with all its amenities. We were near skiing, skating, swimming, mini golf, bowling, family friendly restaurants and more. The neighbors were very friendly and the dead end street can be a nice area for children to hang out. We are already talking about renting it again next year!
