Spacious, convenient, relaxing
Spacious, convenient, relaxing
I stayed here for a weekend with my boyfriend and the house is very spacious and well-kept, so it would be fun to go back again with a big group of friends to take advantage of the space and amenities. It's very close to town, where we found some good restaurants and a lot of great antique stores. It's also near a pretty lake (although the weather was not quite nice enough for a swim). I would recommend this for anyone looking to get away to a nice, clean house for a relaxing time in nature and for exploring a great town. It would also be fun in the winter for a skiing vacation, there's a great big fireplace.

The description is accurate and the house is very clean and well-maintained. The area is very quiet and relaxing although very convenient. The location is excellent, close to Great Barrington where we went for restaurants, shopping, and the movies. It's a short drive to Tanglewood and Stockbridge. The beds are very comfortable. The screened porch is delightful for meals and relaxing. We would recommend this to anyone who wants reasonably-priced accommodations.

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.
