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).

Lovely home in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The house was very cozy and had plenty of room for our family of 8. I think it is nicer than the pictures online. The three full baths were really nice and no one had to wait for the shower when we were getting ready to go out. We were able to walk into town and to the lake and it was very close to Butternut for skiing. We wished that we had brought our ice skates because people were skating on the lake. The owners were lovely and provided A LOT of information about the house when we arrived which was a little overwhelming. We had never rented a house that was the primary residence of the owner before but once we got used to the idea it turned out great.

This is a beautiful home with a wonderful view in a great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home over this Thanksgiving weekend. My husband and I were celebrating our 45th Wedding Anniversary with our family. I have never written a review before, but I always appreciated reading other reviews and this is a great home and I wanted to reciprocate.

This is a fabulous, immaculate and very spacious home within walking distance to Great Barrington and down the block from Lake Mansfield. Ephrat and Benny were a pleasure to work with. We appreciated all of their recommendations and the tour of their home and how everything worked. They even gave us a basket of fruit and a bottle of champagne to help us celebrate.

The kitchen is gorgeous and the home is equipped with everything you can imagine. Although we didn't use it because it was too cold, there is a great screened in patio and a lovely deck off the dining room. The view of the mountains was beautiful even in late November. We were very lucky it snowed a few days before we arrived. Our grandchildren loved making a snowman, playing in the snow and making smores at the fire pit.

We took long walks around the lake and enjoyed the cute town of Great Barrington. Most important, this wonderful home enabled our family to have a great time together!!

We highly recommend this home to anyone who is visiting the Berkshires and would like to make their own happy memories!!

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this beautiful review! It is so nice to hear how each group enjoys the house. I am so happy to hear that both your group and the guests that dropped by loved the house and the unique gathering spaces it offers. We would be more than happy to accommodate you again. Please keep us in mind.

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.
