Welcome to our weekend retreat in Great Barrington! Our house is set in 2.5 acre of land and is surrounded by lush tall trees. While it is only a 5-minute short ride to the town and great restaurants, you will feel completely secluded and relaxed! The house has an open layout with dramatic windows, and is perfect for hosting and entertaining a large family or a group of friends. The finished basement has a pool/ping pong table and an air hockey table for young guests.
House has 4 beds in 4 bedrooms on the second floor -- two queen and two full. The grand master bedroom (with floor to ceiling windows - imagine waking up to that view!) also has a sofa that converts into a twin size bed. There is a sofa bed in Great Room in case you have additional guests. Master bathroom has his & her sinks, and the guest bathroom on the second floor has been newly renovated with a whirlpool tub.
AND the kitchen... our dream came true! This is a perfect entertaining space with open and airy layout with a huge island, which is handmade and shipped all the way from Austin, Texas! Watch humming birds drinking nectar from our window while cooking. All appliances are brand new as we completed our renovation in the fall of 2017. The kitchen is great for cooking, and there's an outdoor propane & charcoal combo grill. The outdoor space is perfect for meals in the summer.
The town & Lake Mansfields are less than 3 miles away. Ski Butternut is less than 5 miles away.
There is high-speed internet (WiFi), 55" flatscreen TV with Apple TV and Netflix (No cable channels). Newly installed high-performing split A/C units in the kitchen and master bedroom (extremely quiet), and guest bedrooms have window units.

My husband and I visited for a much needed long weekend. The house was lovely and perfectly suited our needs. The house is very spacious and the kitchen was a great place to hang out. We also loved the close proximity to the town of Great Barrington for good food and some shopping.
Beautiful property - the house was clean, spacious, stylish and very comfortable temperature and layout- providing room for us to gather or spread out. Super convenient location - 10 minutes to ski and 10 minute drive to pick up groceries or to restaurants along Great Barrington’s Main Street. It was a wonderful stay and we look forward to coming back.
Our stay in Great Barrington surpassed our expectations! The house was located in the woods off the beaten path but still so close to town. It was honestly perfect! The house was large enough for my family and everyone was comfortable throughout. Children had fun in the game room/basement and even enjoyed the “double shower” and “jet bath”. It was as a true getaway, not just a house rental. The house was also stocked with everything we needed to have a holiday dinner. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this house and the hosts and will certainly be back!
My family was looking for a house to get together for a long Mother’s Day weekend in the Berkshires. We wanted a place were we could relax in a private setting yet be close to everything we wanted to do in the area. The house was all that and more. Everything about it was beautifully done, spotlessly cleaned and equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay there. We loved it! The owners, Kate and David, were a pleasure and always available and friendly if we had any questions. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay in a alovely area of the Berkshires.
This roomy house is a mere 10 minutes from town - and yet provides all the privacy one could ask for it. It is immaculately clean. Its four bedrooms provided space for all of us. What's more, it comes with two living rooms and a game room. We were able to cook a lovely meal for our relatives who live in the area because the kitchen is large and opens to the dining space. The owners were responsive and super easy to work with. We would highly recommend this house for a family or group traveling together who want to be able to spend time together but stretch out.
