Great Barrington House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 10

Extraordinary privacy and convenience just a 10-minute walk to Main Street.

You don't have to choose between privacy and convenience when staying at this grand 1863 home - it offers the best of both! This 5 bedroom, 2 bath single-family home was the Sunset View Inn in the early 1900's. It rests proudly on 3 acres at the end of a dead-end street. At this house you can spread out, sleep in, and enjoy a game of croquet or badminton on the lawn. Use the WiFi and flat-screen TV to stay connected, or turn devices off and tune into the birds singing and the wind rustling the trees instead. It will feel so far away, yet it's so close. The woods behind are part of East Mountain and the land to the front is wooded park land. Many of the Berkshires' best attractions are within a 15-20 minute drive including Tanglewood, Norman Rockwell Museum, Shakespeare and Company, Berkshire Theater, and Chesterwood. Several hiking and skiing locations are also very convenient with Monument Mountain and Ski Butternut just 5 minutes away. Enjoy sunsets on the fully screened front porch. Pack up the picnic items provided and enjoy a concert at Tanglewood. Take these same items along with our beach towels to enjoy a swim at Lake Mansfield – just five minutes away! You can choose to stay in and cook using our fully stocked kitchen and outdoor grill, or you can dine at one of the many fabulous restaurants in town. When done, you can enjoy varied entertainment downtown – whether ou walk or drive is up to you!

Perfect location for mini-reunion

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our mini-reunion of 6 friends. It is spacious and well-equipped with everything we needed. The house is on a private, very quiet, and beautiful property with an easy walk to the main streets of Great Barrington. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries. We would definitely rent this property again.

Cozy private inn

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property, with exceptionally available owner who takes miticulous care of her home. Wonderful natural exposure on a quiet dead end road. My nine family members had the most enjoyable weekend here. Highly recommended!

Great family gathering spot

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I were joined by my 2 children and their families, including my 2 grandchildren. We were all very pleased with the house. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. House is a bit on the old side, that's why the 4 stars; it was a bit noisy and disturbed the kids a little. But, overall, a great place and beautiful grounds. Very clean and the owner was accessible and friendly. I would definitely stay there again!

A Great Barrington Charmer

  • 4 of 5

Amy's house is charming. It is well located and has plenty of outdoor space in which to lounge or toss a Frisbee! The LR is large. It is well equipped with extra camp chairs and beach towels. The only negative was that three of the five bedrooms have no AC units, relying on the two bedrooms that do for cool air. For people who like privacy, closed doors meant very warm rooms at night. Despite this, our family would happily stay there again.

Great house, private, very roomy & clean! Close to downtown.

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriends & I had a great time at this property. Amy, the owner was very accommodating, just a phone call away & she gave good ideas on what to do in the areal & what restaurants to go too. The property is very private which was nice. A good time was had by all & I would definately recommend this property for a get a way weekend or vacation!
