                  The Berkshires is a perfect four season getaway for people who enjoy sports, nature, the arts to total relaxation. The Berkshires offers ample opportunity for hikers, skiers and golfers with various mountain ranges for summer climbing as well as winter skiing (Jiminy Peak, Butternut, Cranwell golf resort). People who enjoy the arts can choose between Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Berkshire Opera and Theatre Festivals. While others who want to get away from it all can visit Kripalu or Canyon Ranch for yoga or for spa get away. Great for families with young children with petting farms (Ioka Valley Farm), strawberry, apple and blueberry picking, swimming lake (Lake Mansfield) as well as the summer highlight of the David Grover Band at the Great Barrington Town Hall.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We bought this house as a vacation home in 2005. The same year that our twins were born.

                  Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington:
                  We wanted a country get away that was close enough for a weekend away from our home. We wanted a place that was quiet, yet close enough to the town center. We also wanted a home that was driving distance to all of our favorite destinations such as Tanglewood, Lake Mansfield and Butternut ski resort.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We loved the fact that it had a three season porch that helped us experience the outdoors without actually being outdoors. We also loved the downstairs entertainment area and wet bar.
