Thoughtfully furnished with plenty of spread out room in the multiple common areas. 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths; large sun room with 7' high windows and two sky-lights; dining room with table for 6 to 8 people; freshly painted family room with brand new hardwood floors, a desk for doing homework, and a nook with books and games; living room with a working fireplace and a large HD TV; tiled and hardwood floors throughout; brass grab-bars and handrails for safety at steps; washing machine and dryer in the basement; backyard patio with gas grill; a mere half-mile to SkiButternut and less than 2 miles to downtown.

Plenty of dressers, closet space, linen closet and pantry. The driveway is wide and level and has plenty of space for cars and turning around.

The kitchen is loaded with everything you need for great home-cooking, and plenty of extra drawers and cabinets for your own special goodies. Plus there's a breakfast bar for those eat and run mornings.

About Paula Hatch

I am a Great Barrington native and I produce concerts for a non-profit classical music organization in the Berkshires. I am an avid skier in winter and a water person in the summer.

Paula Hatch purchased this house in 2004

Why Paula Hatch chose Berkshires

This house is well located in the Berkshires. It is a quick 1.5 miles to downtown Great Barrington and minutes to all the cultural and natural attractions of the Berkshires. I live five minutes away and am readily available for help and assistance as you make yourself comfortable.

What makes this house unique

The sunroom, with its 7' high windows, looks across the patio and back yard to the mountain behind the house. Who knows what you might see but the turkey parade usually begins in late afternoon! Seriously!

Clean, Comfortable and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We live in Long Island and needed a getaway. Paula's house was perfect. It was clean, comfortable and was in the perfect location. No snow to ski, but we hiked, visited museums and hung out in Great Barrington. The town is minutes from the house. Paula met us at the house when we got there and was very helpful. No need to worry about any bait and switch, house is the real deal!

Comfortable and inviting

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as my nephew was getting married in Great Barrington and we preferred a house over three hotel rooms. We had my 89 year old father with us. Paula has things set up for an elderly guest-first floor bedroom and bath, two living rooms and kitchen. The living room had a TV he could easily operate and his own thermostat. Since he's from Florida "warmth" was one of the criteria! Paula takes great care of the house, it's super clean and everything was great. Just a minute down the road is Butternut Ski Area, and we took a nice hike on Saturday morning. Thanks so much for a lovely stay!

Large and extremely spacious property. Very well equipped, you have everything a family would need for an extended stay ( we stayed there for 5 days).

Comfortable beds and mattresses, all of us slept very well.

Great stay- clean, cozy well stocked!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this place. Paula has done an awesome job. New hardwood floors, extremely clean, and nicely decorated. The sunroom is great and we spent a lot of time there. The backyard was beautiful. Instead of exploring as planned one afternoon, we sat out back with a glass of wine . It was just too pretty to leave!

I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Great location in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house and invited two friends. We could not have been happier. The property is so conveniently located to everything and the owner Paula is so nice. We were interested in Tanglewood and hiking; Tanglewood is 20 minutes aways and there is a great mountain to hike down the road and others within a 30 minutes drive as well. The place was clean, large and suited our needs perfectly. We also brought our dog which Paula was generous to allow and she loved it as well since there was a large backyard.

Fantastic Ski house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house with our young children for the month, and found it extremely spacious, comfortable, warm and the ABSOLUTE BEST LOCATION POSSIBLE! We skied every day at Butternut, and with little kids were able to come home whenever we needed to. Great Barrington is a wonderful town, and we were a mile from everything we could want or need! The house is very clean and well maintained with a fantastic layout and room for plenty! The house looks even better in person than in the pictures. Paula was readily available, accessible, kind, and extremely helpful. We have nothing but fantastic things to say about the house, Paula, Butternut Ski Resort, and Great Barrington!
