New Marlborough Cottage Rental Photos and Description

great place to get away from it all

Compact home with tremendous space. Great for family + in-laws, or 2 - 3 couples. Open ground floor with kitchen, dining and living in one large open room. Master bedroom with queen bed, kids bedroom with 2 singles on a sleeping attic. Lower level has a garden room with its own bathroom and very comfortable sleeping couch for 2.

The house is located on a gravel road, and surrounded by endless forrest. There is no WIFI, and only spotty cell phone reception, so a great way to get away from it all.

5 minutes away from York Lake for boating and swimming. Close to the Southfield Store, the most delicious place for coffee, lunch and dinner (and WIFI....). Dining at the Inn on the Green. 20 min by car to Great Barrington.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house and Florian, the owner, was responsive and a pleasure to communicate with. The house is in a beautiful spot right near York Lake and is quite lovely. There is a big living room ainple but great main bedroom and a big lawn, plus a bonfire put where we roasted marshmallows for S'mores.

I would have rated it five stars but you pay quite a lot for what you get. The house ought to have wireless internet and the owner family (which is, by the look of things, wonderful and a family I'd love to meet) ought to clear out a bit more of their stuff from the closets and drawers. Also if you bring small kids be aware that there is a sleeping loft whose stairway warrants close supervision to use.

Love this wonderful house

  • 4 of 5

My husband, daughter and myself have stayed in this charming house multiple times and each time we love it more. The location is wonderful - quiet, peaceful, away-from-it-all but easily accessible to Southfield Store, New Marlborough and Great Barrington. Very accommodating hosts!

Hansel and Gretel Pam A.

  • 4 of 5

Private, special, quiet, very pretty, simply well done home. Spent 10 days with my 2 teenage daughters. No cell, no tv, no screens. We read, walked to the coffee store miles down the road, cooked and explored the beautiful area. Open floor plan so although small you don't feel cramped. Can't wait to go back.

The woods

  • 4 of 5

Adorable house in the woods. No ac, fan, tv or cell phone reception so was a bit like camping, but with a house instead if a tent. Lots of bugs and wildlife. The bears are more scared of you then you are of them. Friendly neighbors. Farm up the road.
