Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: We found the Berkshires by chance as neither of us was really familiar with the area. Now that we've had the property for nearly 18 years, we have become authorities on the Berkshires and we share that information with all our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington:
We chose this cottage in the Berkshires because of its proximity to both leisure and cultural activities. Additionally, we loved the light and landscape that can be viewed from the cottage at different times of day.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
When we are at the cottage, we enjoy sitting on the deck and reading or sunning. Locally, there are hikes and bike routes, both mountain and road, that we take advantage of. We explore new areas of the Berkshires for future hikes. We love going to downtown Great Barrington and parking ourselves with our dog, at an outdoor cafe. We spend time working in our garden and bird watching.
