About Noriko and Dale
We bought this house as a vacation home in 2005. The same year that our twins were born.
Noriko and Dale purchased this House in 2005
Why Noriko and Dale chose Great Barrington
We wanted a country get away that was close enough for a weekend away from our home. We wanted a place that was quiet, yet close enough to the town center. We also wanted a home that was driving distance to all of our favorite destinations such as Tanglewood, Lake Mansfield and Butternut ski resort.
What makes this House unique
We loved the fact that it had a three season porch that helped us experience the outdoors without actually being outdoors. We also loved the downstairs entertainment area and wet bar.

Great place for a family vacation stay
We really enjoyed staying in this property and found it's rustic style very homey and easy. The owners were responsive and accommodating and the location in a woodland area just outside of Great Barrington was beautiful. The fireplace in the living room and the gas burning stove in the window enclosed porch were both welcome features. The ping pong/pool table proved a hit with our younger adult family members.
A Nice Place
The property is well located and close to many of the cultural
attractions we enjoyed. Kitchen is well equipted and easy to use. Both bathrooms are nice and have obviously been upgraded.It would be more comfortable with central air but the two window units did help. The local property manager was very helpful with our needs.
:Lovely House, Good Location
Beautiful house with many places to sit with friends, great bbq area on deck. Close to many interesting area attractions. Hosts helpful in answering questions and dealing with issues.
Another wonderful Thanksgiving in the Berkshires. Spaces for everyone including kids..The porch is my favorite space.
Beautiful setting in the Berkshires.
The house was perfect for our family Thanksgiving weekend. There was plenty of space for young and old to spread out. Close to shopping, restaurants and all that the Berkshires have to offer all year round.
We were pleased that our guests were able to enjoy the house during the Thanksgiving week.
Peaceful, private house near everything in the Berkshires
We spent a week in this very private home in a lovely, quiet neighborhood in Great Barrington. We enjoyed being a few minutes away from the "downtown" of Great Barrington and its shops and restaurants and also having the relaxing privacy of our rental. The house is also near Stockbridge (about 10-minutes) and Lenox is about a 15 - 20 minute drive. We especially loved the very large, attractive screen porch with its array of comfy furniture, dining table/chairs and the ceiling fan. It has sliders leading to the dining room/kitchen area.
The house is well suited for two couples since it has two full bathrooms. The main floor has a nice two-sink plus tub/shower bathroom that has been newly remodeled and the downstairs (basement level with its large entertainment room) has another bathroom with a walk-in shower. There is also a laundry room in the basement area. Given that it was summer, we did not spend time in the basement entertainment area but I can imagine it would be a nice feature in the colder months with its big screen TV and pool table. The living room on the main floor is spacious and offers a large fireplace which would also be lovely on a cold day.
There is a brand new deck but apparently because it is new, there is no deck furniture per se (although one could move furniture from the screen porch area). The deck is right off the porch room.
We enjoyed our stay at this house and were also pleased with how Noriko dealt with a few concerns/glitches we encountered.
We enjoying having lovely guests at our home. We do try our best to make them feel comfortable. That's our responsibility to our guests who choose our home over all others.
The Berkshires is a perfect four season getaway for people who enjoy sports, nature, the arts to total relaxation. The Berkshires offers ample opportunity for hikers, skiers and golfers with various mountain ranges for summer climbing as well as winter skiing (Jiminy Peak, Butternut, Cranwell golf resort). People who enjoy the arts can choose between Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Berkshire Opera and Theatre Festivals. While others who want to get away from it all can visit Kripalu or Canyon Ranch for yoga or for spa get away. Great for families with young children with petting farms (Ioka Valley Farm), strawberry, apple and blueberry picking, swimming lake (Lake Mansfield) as well as the summer highlight of the David Grover Band at the Great Barrington Town Hall.
