For hikers, Bash Bish Falls is a 10 minute drive as is the Appalachian Trail. For skiers you are only one mile from Catamount (, 20 minutes to Butternut ( and 45 to Jiminy Peak( Summer renters can enjoy the sense of getting-away-from-it-all, but still be within a short drive to all the cultural events the Berkshires are known for: live theater, dance, wonderful shopping, restaurants, galleries. etc. Plenty of lakes surround the area for swimming, head to Taconic State Park or stay home and jump right into the pond.

About Claudia Laslie: Berkshire Rental Properties

Hello! I am Claudia Laslie, owner and creator of Berkshire Rental Properties, specializing in both long and short term vacation rentals, throughout the Southern Berkshires, since 2005. My role is to act as liaison between renter and homeowner and to assist the owner in preparing their rental so that renters have a wonderful experience and want to return to the Berkshires again and again.

I moved to Great Barrington in 2003 along with my two children who were quite young at the time. Looking to supplement my income, I would clean my house top to bottom, pack my kids into their car seats, and rent out my house for weekends. In talking about it with friends, one thing lead to another and before long I was helping others to do the same! My company has come a long way from those early vacation rental pioneering days... thank goodness. BRP provides seasoned guidance to both homeowners as they prepare their homes as well as to potential renters to help them find the best property that fits their needs. I also assist with long term rentals, both furnished and unfurnished.

I am a licensed MA real estate broker represented by Lance Vermeulen Real Estate Inc. If are ready to think about buying your first home, down-sizing your current, looking for an investment property (my specialty!) or finding that second home, I'd be happy to discuss your goals with you and go see some properties!

The Mission:

Berkshire Rental Properties aspires to deliver clean well-prepared homes, through honest advertising, to the mutual satisfaction of both homeowner and guest, by making meaningful connections.

Berkshire Rental Properties is a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Home Creative LLC.

Peaceful and lovely

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the house over Memorial Day weekend. The house is modern, clean, well decorated and very comfortable. We had two families with a total of 4 kids and everyone had a spot without feeling too crowded. The upper deck is fantastic, with great views. The grounds were super green and lush and very, very peaceful. The house is also very close to Great Barrington, which has restaurants, shops, trails, etc. There are many other fun things to do in the area as well, including with kids.

Gorgeous view, cozy yet expansive setting with a very tasteful aesthetic!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends had a wonderful time at the Breezy Hill residence. Carrie and Sarah, at Berkshire Rentals, were responsive and professional. Megan, the owner, was helpful, friendly and very nice. We've rented a few places over the years and this was by far the most relaxed experience from start to finish. Super fun bird watching and amazing sunsets!

Breezy Hill road

  • 5 of 5

The house and property were lovely and we had a wonderful time there. While the photos were accurate they do not do justice to this magnificent place. The owners left the property in perfect shape for us to move in and immediately start to enjoying their beautiful home. They were attentive, without being intrusive. I highly recommend this to anyone! If I had not just bought a house of my own in the Berkshires, Breezy Hill would be an annual destination for my family....we loved it!!
