Property description

A private, centrally situated apartment suite within an original, restored Carriage House is a suitable respite in the beautiful Berkshires Hills. Here you can relax in an area filled with cultural activities:such as Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, Barrington Stage, Stockbridge, Mahaiwe & Williamstown Theaters, the Choral or Bluegrass Fesivals., classical music concerts, art shows, auctions, skiing, nature, hiking, etc. The Carriage House, located near town, is set back from the road, privately shielded by trees and flowering plants seasonally. Rejuvenate next door at Body and Soul for a selection of massages or facials.

Light and comfortable, the private apartment is in the owner-occupied bldg. and consists of a living/dining area, fireplace, small but equipped kitchenette, bedroom (comfortable queen mattress) & bath, 2 closets, a private French door entrance from deck with table and chairs for outdoor eating or relaxing. Efforts to maintain environmentally clean space preclude use of strong perfumes and scented items or smoking. Suitable for 1 or 2 people. The Carriage House is totally accessible to all Berkshire activities and especially those in Gt. Barrington with many top-notch restaurants, Mahaiwe Theatre performances, the Triplex movie house, shops, grocery and organic food stores. It's 3 to 4 minutes to center of town by car or a pleasant 15 minute walk.

Shed your tensions, rest, enjoy a beautiful area & rejuvenate!
