About Bill Rosenblatt

We're a family of 4 that lives primarily in NYC, upper west side. We were drawn to the Berkshires because Jessica works with classical music artists who perform at Tanglewood and Bill went to grad school nearby in Amherst. The Berkshires have been a place to relax and unwind from city life for us for 25 years.

Bill Rosenblatt purchased this house in 2008

Why Bill Rosenblatt chose Great Barrington

We love the house and the area but don't get up there as much as we used to now that our kids are both teenagers. We're avid foodies and find that the Great Barrington area is incomparable for food shopping and farmers markets.

What makes this house unique

The house has a private, secluded feel. It sits on three acres of land down a gravel driveway. Yet it's a short distance from town and shopping. We have a formidable array of kitchen equipment, top quality bed linens, high speed cable Internet, toys, games, musical instruments, and many other things to make your stay enjoyable!
