Great Barrington house description
Farm house in town but has a secluded feeling, with lovely lawns and gardens, (knob hill) 'on the hill' in Great Barrington, which was just listed as no. 1 as the best little town in America by Smithsonian Magazine. Easy walk to center of town, walkable to Lake Mansfield for swimming, and short walk to saturday morning farmers market. The house has rustic artistic decorations, but with all the modern amenities: washer dryer, dishwasher, wi fi, cable and air conditioning. Four bedrooms, plus laundry room which can sleep one more, two porches (futon sofas on porches). New barbecure grill, lovely flower garden facing big porch. There is a second building (renovated small barn still a little rough) which can be used for an office, though has some of our storage) or an emergency guest room or playroom (during warm weather). SO good for family reunions though not overwhelming for two. Not a huge house but can sleep multitudes.
Family and pet friendly. Also close to two ski areas, Butternut and Catamount, one right in town.

A perfect getaway to fit all of our needs.
A perfect getaway to fit all of our needs.
We were so happy to find this home so close to downtown Great Barrington. There were times when we had our teenage children and friends, who worked at a nearby overnight camp coming and going as well as extended family. There was room for everyone! The home is cozy yet spacious with so many personal touches. It is clearly a family home and does not feel like a rental house. We had everything we could want from linens to kitchen supplies, as well as spices and pantry ingredients! The yard and gardens are lovely and we spent lots of time relaxing on one of the two enclosed porches. It's a short (but hilly) walk to and from downtown Great Barrington with so many restaurants and things to do in the area. Thanks to the owner Jeri who was a pleasure to deal with. We hope to return again next summer.

Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington:
after spending the summer working in Stockbridge ,we decided when we had the down payment we would buy something. seven years later we did it. This was one of two properties we looked at on a saturday afternoon. it was love at first sight.
