About the property

The Perfect Home For Ski season In The Berkshires.

A sunny,comfortable,family home on 4 acres, close to town, and with a pool! Everything you need for a perfect Berkshire summer. 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a well appointed kitchen,screened porch,garden,and a fenced in pool.

The home sits on 4 bucolic acres on one of the most desirable roads in Great Barrington. Very quiet and private with great loops for walking,biking, and jogging. It's a short walk to the Rudolph Steiner Day Camp, the little G. B. airport, a dairy farm, a sheep farm, and the Green river for dipping and fishing.It's only a 3 minute drive to down town,Guidos, The Triplex Cinema, and all the great restaurants and shops in G. B. Tanglewood is about a 15 minute drive, and Jacobs Pillow about 25.

Enjoy your meals on the screened porch, huge deck, or set the round table inside for up to 10 ( you can squeeze 12!) The recently remodeled kitchen, which has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens Kitchen Renovation Magazine, has everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal. There is a large pantry, as well as a walnut counter with seating for 4. The kitchen, dining, and living room, open up to each other for great flow. Off the living room is small study with a 52' flat screen TV, and a desk. There is also a powder room and a foyer with cubbys and coat hooks to catch all your clutter. Through the living room is the screened porch.

Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master has a king sized bed, flat screen TV, dressing room, and an en suite bath with a large soaking tub and separate shower. There are 3 more bedrooms that share a full bathroom with tub/ shower combo. 2 bedrooms have queen beds, and 1 has 2 twins. There is also a washer and dryer in the upstairs hallway for easy access.

Best of all is out side! There is a large sunny yard looking out to our field with veggie gardens, and a corn field beyond. There is even a fire pit for cool evenings and toasting marshmallows. And of course, there is the pool! It's fully fenced in making it safer for any small kids in the house, and it's surrounded by its own lawn for playing.

This is not a luxury rental. It's a Comfortable, Stylish Home in a great location, with everything one needs for a perfect Berkshire vacation. Butternut and Catamount ski area is only 10 min away.

The Perfect Berkshire Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect Berkshires home. We are a family of four from NYC. Stayed in this beautiful, bright and incredibly relaxing home from January 2015 to mid April. The house was a perfect size for our family and grandparents but can very comfortably sleep up to 8 or more on any night.

The home is well furnished and beautifully decorated on the inside and out. It is located on a quiet road through a beautiful landscape. Some of our best memories were staring out from the kitchen over a cup of coffee or glass of wine (or two).

The house is located within a 5-10 minute drive from downtown Great Barrington, Butternut & Catamount, Lake Mansfield and other local attractions. The front and back yards are large and fun for our kids to run and play all practically no begging for TV, iPads...beautiful!

The owners are a very warm couple. Keep the home beautifully maintained year round. Provided great suggestions for activities, dining and local attractions for our family.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family getaway: it's a comfortable, cozy and well-appointed home with all the things that you need for relaxation. Located just a few minutes from downtown Great Barrington and the gourmet Guido's grocery, you're close enough to appreciate town, but also far enough to feel like you're out in the country. And it looks like country on the 3 or so acres here: a stunning vista out the kitchen windows reminds you of the beauty of nature in the Berkshires. Even during our winter visit, the backyard was beautiful: tall trees dot a wood-fenced meadow, and the house abuts a dense forest. Inside, the rooms are spacious (especially the master, which has a large bath tub), and the multiple thermostats ensure that you won't be too cold in winter (a problem we've experienced in other homes). Best of all--at least for us--was the living room, complete with a wood-burning fireplace, and smartly-laid-out kitchen. Indeed, the kitchen is so well stocked, it's probably better than your home kitchen.

The house is quite clean and tidy--a very welcome environment for picky travelers. And the hosts are very hospitable. We had a great stay and we highly recommend this property. We'll be back.

August 2014 stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house for two weeks in August 2014. We had a lovely time. The house was well furnished and tidy, entirely consistent with the pictures. Great, usable kitchen that came well-stocked for cooking. Nice vegetable garden that landlord lets you help yourself to. Landlord was very easy to deal with, and flexible when we asked to extend our stay by a bit. House was private from nearly every angle, with no close-by neighbors. Ideal location for easy access to GB. My only recommendation would be if you have young children, bring some toys/games as the house only had board games suitable for adults. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, Functional & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed for a week in this beautifully kept, functionally designed, spaciously relaxing home. Big family meals happened with ease, naps were taken without interrupting noise, and not a single World Cup game was missed. The house was well supplied including the invitation to partake from the kitchen garden. We spent most of our time outside on the brand new deck and swimming in the clean pool. Very close to town and other area attractions, everyone in the family agreed it was a perfect place to stay.
