About E. David

We have been living in the Berkshires for almost 20 years. We have two sons in college.

E. David purchased this house in 2012

Why E. David chose Berkshires

A friend who renovated this house and offered it to us. We fell in love with the gorgeous view, the location on 'Hill of Great Barrington' and decided to buy it.

Guests who have stayed at our house say the picture do not do it justice. It is difficult to describe how wonderful it is. Please read our reviews.

What makes this house unique

Short drive to Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, Shakespeare & Co. etc. 10 minute walk to downtown Great Barrington which is home to many delightful restaurants, shops, galleries, and theatre venues (Mahaiwe Performing Arts & Triplex Movie Theater) Three minute walk to Lake Mansfield- a summer favorite for swimming (lifeguard on site), kayaking, picnicking, fishing hiking & biking. Walk to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning, listen to a concert on the town green (during the summer), or just relax on the gazebo with a glass of wine. During summer there are many activities & events every day for people of all ages. During the fall, the view from the house is even more stunning, during the winter the house you can visit nearby skiing resorts such as Butternut, Catamount. Our property is 8 mins drive to Butternut Ski area (3.8 miles), and 15 mins drive to Catamount ski area (8miles).

Sprawling, welcoming home with great outdoor spaces

  • 5 of 5

This house was as advertised on the website and was perfect for our family. It's a sprawling house with lots of bedrooms and bathrooms, a comfortable living room, a beautiful kitchen, a screened in porch and many decks and patios on which to enjoy the beautiful setting. We were in the area for a family wedding, and it was ideal, both for our family to stay at and for other members of the extended family to drop by. The house was clean and showed much pride of ownership. We would definitely recommend it to others and would stay there again.

Beautiful large home with an incredible view situated within walking distance to a lovely lake

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really don't do the place justice! We came up here as a large group to attend a friend's wedding and this home helped make the experience the best weekend of our summer. Comfortable and ideally located close to the town center, this recently remodeled house is spacious and has all the modern amenities you would need for a group get-a-away and then some. There are several comfortable bedrooms spread across three floors with lots of places to hang out, both indoors and out. The hilltop location also give this place a great view of the near by mountains, which we enjoyed while eating breakfast and dinner on both the second floor deck and ground level patio (complete with grill!). It is also a short walk to a lake and small nature trail. The hosts were friendly and took the time to give us a full tour of the house and acquaint us with the area to make a visit seamless. Wonderful place and highly recommended!

Amazing view, great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for the weekend of my wedding, and we were so pleased with all aspects of our stay. The property itself was ideally located just a short walk, and even shorter drive from town. Though I didn't get to go for a dip in the lake, I did run past it in the morning when out for a jog, and it made for a very scenic run! We had a big family dinner on Friday evening, and there was plenty of space for everyone to eat and enjoy each other's company. As opposed to staying in separate rooms in a hotel, staying here made us feel like we were at home. It was such a pleasant weekend, and I would highly recommend this property to others looking for a spacious house near downtown in Great Barrington.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us stayed at this beautiful home, relaxing in the evenings, enjoying the view and taking advantage of the location to hike and explore the area during the day. The house surpassed our expectations, so well stocked and immaculate. In the evenings we would enjoy the terrace, cook out on the grill then sit around the fire pit to roast marshmallows for s'mores.

Locally, we enjoyed the hike to Bash Bish Falls and the Shaker Village. We would definately recommend this home to our friends.

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a good time. You are one of the few groups that actually checked out extensive spice collection. Glad to hear that you made good use of everything we supplied as well as the house and the location. Please keep us in mind for future vacations.

Beautiful home with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our quick getaway with friends with a lot of wonderful amenities we didn't have time to use! Very close to Main St to enjoy some local cuisine and plenty of room for us to hang out and socialize at the house.

Beautiful home, with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend in this beautiful home, celebrating a small wedding. The ceremony was actually performed down at the lake (a short walk from the house), but it might also have been on the beautiful patio looking out over the mountains. Instead we used the patio for the after-ceremony champagne toasts, before going out to dinner.

The write-up says 4 bedrooms, but there are actually 5 bedrooms, plus 3 ½ bathrooms. It is all very comfortable and nicely decorated. The common areas – living room, screened-in porch and stone patio – are really nice. The owners have left everything you could possibly need, especially in the kitchen and outside.

The owner was also extremely helpful in making local recommendations for restaurants, etc. which helped to make this wedding weekend memorable. All in all, a perfect place for this special weekend.

Owner's Response: Dear Wendy, It was so nice to host this small wedding and help you prepare and plan for it. This is the first wedding we had at this house. I am so happy to hear that you had such a nice time. I do believe this house can be a magical place for such occasions. I hope that in the upcoming years you will have many happy occasions to celebrate. Best, Ephrat
