There is only one cottage--30' away from our home--on this three-acre property. It has its own entrance and its own parking space. The pool is shared with us, but you will have it to yourselves for most of the day--just ask for private time.
There are windows on three sides, a ceiling fan and a window fan.

This property was well taken care of and in a great location not far from downtown. We took advantage of all the walks/hikes recommend to us and explored Lenox and west Stockbridge as well. Hosts were pleasant and available. Thanks!
From the moment we arrived we felt in awe of the pool and the view, and the feeling of being tucked away into our own little paradise. Also Great Barrington was a very short trip away, where we could get tasty treats and beverages to enjoy, and hike the beautiful paths. The town is very progressive, people were respectfully wearing masks, and the vibe was welcoming and accepting. Our host was friendly, responsive, and available when needed, and we felt very comfortable being ourselves. We are so grateful for having been able to enjoy the rest and relaxation we needed.
Spectacular views with a solid efficiency apartment. Poolside is grand looking towards the Berkshires. No stove/oven but there’s a microwave. Great dog option with a wonderful grass field for frolicking.
I cannot say enough about this amazing cottage and property. Our hosts were just lovely. I felt especially cared for when a storm knocked power out briefly and Frederika checked in on us immediately to let us know flashlights and candles were in our room. The property is stunning and the location, while close to town (great restaurants and shopping) is as beautiful a country setting as one could ask for. I was able to “work from home” a few days and enjoy pastural and distant mountain views. The pool was a wonderful bonus. Just loved our stay. We hope to return soon !
This is a wonderful spot from which to explore the beauties of the Berkshires. The apartment is perfectly organized, the bed super comfortable, and the views unparalleled. Couldn't be better - I look forward to coming back!
My wife and I stayed here in August 2020 and had wonderful time. The property and surrounding area are beautiful. The apartment is cozy and exactly as advertised, and the pool is amazing. And to top it all off, the host was quick to respond, very accommodating and incredibly kind. We highly recommend staying here!
We had a wonderful stay at this studio cottage in Great Barrington last week! After 5 long months in self-isolation in NYC, this property had everything we needed for a relaxing week away. The cottage itself is very comfortable and perfect for 2 travelers. We were a little concerned it would be warm at night with no AC in July, but it actually got very cool and Frederica left great tips for managing the temperature well. The pool on their property was simply perfect and has a beautiful view of the hills around their home. This is also a great location to feel like you're in the middle of the countryside, but just a quick drive away from the town center with plenty of shops and restaurants. We had no trouble finding places to eat with outdoor dining and were also able to grill for ourselves a few times. Great proximity to hiking trails as well and we spotted a ton of wildlife including two bears, a fox, and beavers while driving around. Could not recommend this property more highly!
My daughter and I greatly enjoyed a week at this studio. The views are spectacular, the pool was crystal clean and property well tended. Close proximity to town is fun for eating out and visiting shops. Great walking with views like non-other Ive seen in Western Mass.
We had a very relaxing stay at Frederica's and Efren's property. The view is stunning, the pool so wonderful, and the rental really nice. We had excellent weather for the entire time and spent much of the day outside. There are great hikes right around the apartment as well as a bit further afield. And there was amazing food to be had in Great Barrington Check out the Bistro Box -- that was really the best.
We stayed at the lovely cottage of Frederica and Efrem. The cottage was clean, with all the necessary amenities. They even included a lovely bottle of wine. Location is perfect for visiting GB, but also other towns of the Berkshires such as Lenox, Southbridge, Lee, etc. We did a lot of cycling while there and the roads were great. The pool was a nice respite from the afternoon heat, and the views from the property are the exact reason to travel to the Berkshires. Additionally, our hosts welcomed our little dog, and she loved running around the beautiful yard! We would definitely recommend the cottage to friends, and hope to return again ourselves!
My husband and I were only able to stay at this property for a few days, but our time there was wonderful! We enjoyed the serenity of the property and beautiful views. The cottage was clean and well stocked. It was everything that we needed for a relaxing few days. The time that my husband and I spent relaxing in the pool looking at the beautiful surroundings was priceless. Frederica was very attentive and anxious to make our stay the best that it could be. We wish that we were able to stay longer!
We had a very nice visit to Frederica and Efrem's cottage. It is a great little place on a gorgeous property. We appreciate them sharing it with us!
Beautiful spot, comfortable accommodations, we’ll be back!
What a beautiful slice of heaven Frederica & her husband have created. The space was charming, comfortable and well-appointed. The pool --overlooking a stunning Berkshire view --was a great place to unplug from the world with a nice long float. A bottle of wine, fruit and chocolate were lovely & hospitable touches with the nightly light show from fireflies in the field rounding out a relaxing and romantic experience. We will surely seek out this lovely haven if our work travels bring us to Tanglewood again!
Lovely cottage; quiet and peaceful. Very close to everything in GB. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway.
The picture is real (except we didn't see the rainbow). It's a lovely first floor studio cottage with a kitchenette; very comfortable, well stocked, and beautifully decorated overlooking a gorgeous scene. The pool was an extra pleasure. Great location -- minutes from downtown Great Barrington and a short drive to Tanglewood and many of the other special Berkshire locales. The hosts are very gracious and helpful. We highly recommend and would definitely return.
We had a lovely stay at this perfect location. The cottage has everything we needed, and the view from the pool cannot be beat!! Thank you for your warm hospitality!
