Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have been living in the Berkshires for almost 20 years. We have two sons in college.

Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington:
Recently a friend who renovated this house and offered it to us. We fell in love with the gorgeous view, the location on 'Hill of Great Barrington' and decided to buy it. Our next decision was to rent it out when we can. Guests who have stayed at our house say the picture do not do it justice. It is difficult to describe how wonderful it is. Please read our reviews.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Short drive to Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, Shakespeare & Co. etc. 10 minute walk to downtown Great Barrington which is home to many delightful restaurants, shops, galleries, and theatre venues (Mahaiwe Performing Arts & Triplex Movie Theater) Three minute walk to Lake Mansfield- a summer favorite for swimming (lifeguard on site), kayaking, picnicking, fishing hiking & biking. Walk to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning, listen to a concert on the town green (during the summer), or just relax on the gazebo with a glass of wine. During summer there are many activities & events every day for people of all ages. During the fall, the view from the house is even more stunning, during the winter the house you can visit nearby skiing resorts such as Butternut, Catamount. Our property is 8 mins drive to Butternut Ski area (3.8 miles), and 15 mins drive to Catamount ski area (8miles).
