- 1 BR, 1 BA, sleeps 2

A private, centrally situated apartment suite within an original, restored Carriage House is a suitable respite in the beautiful Berkshires Hills. Here you can relax in an area filled with cultural activities:such as Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, Barrington Stage, Stockbridge, Mahaiwe & Williamstown Theaters, the Choral or Bluegrass Fesivals., classical music concerts, art shows, auctions, skiing, nature, hiking, etc. The Carriage House, located near town, is set back from the road, privately shielded by trees and flowering plants seasonally. Rejuvenate next door at Body and Soul for a selection of massages or facials.

Light and comfortable, the private apartment is in the owner-occupied bldg. and consists of a living/dining area, fireplace, small but equipped kitchenette, bedroom (comfortable queen mattress) & bath, 2 closets, a private French door entrance from deck with table and chairs for outdoor eating or relaxing. Efforts to maintain environmentally clean space preclude use of strong perfumes and scented items or smoking. Suitable for 1 or 2 people. The Carriage House is totally accessible to all Berkshire activities and especially those in Gt. Barrington with many top-notch restaurants, Mahaiwe Theatre performances, the Triplex movie house, shops, grocery and organic food stores.

A wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful time at this little get-away. While small, it is equipped with everything you need for a super-comfortable stay. The kitchenette has all the dishes, glasses, and pots and pans you could want; the bathroom is large and full of lovely towels; and the bed is lush and comfortable. The gentle breezes blew through the open doors and windows. It is secluded yet right close (walking distance) to wonderful shops and restaurants. There is some street noise that wafts up during the day (although you can't see cars--it's truly like being in a tree house), but the noise dissipates considerably at night. Lois is generous and welcoming. We will definitely go again!

Good Things Come in Small Packages

  • 5 of 5

As the saying goes - Good Things Come in Small Packages and this is place is certainly one of those packages. Place was very clean, nicely decorated and had everything I could need for a wonderful long weekend break. High on a hill surround by trees I felt like I was sleeping in a tree house. The kitchen while small had everything I needed to make a nice dinner. The bathroom well stocked with soft plushy towels. And the bed was so comfortable I hated to get up in the morning. This is a nice retreat for an individual or a couple. The owner was very pleasant, and her pup Tessa was a sweetheart.

Charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 days here very much. Very clean and comfortable, luxurious bed, ample bathroom, relaxing living room. Yes, the kitchen is tight, but I've stayed in larger vacation homes that were not nearly as well supplied. Very convenient spot - for getting a paper in the morning, for the restaurants in Great Barrington, for all the great events going on in the Berkshires, and, especially convenient for us, as a starting point for bike rides. Lois couldn't have been more gracious. Even her dog and cat are friendly!

Felt like we were in a cozy treehouse!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying 4 nights at this cozy, charming apartment and did not want to leave. This spot feels secluded but is close to anything needed, a perfect combination. Lovely home and grounds.
