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.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1992

Why The Owner chose Berkshires

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Berkshire Mountain Cottage Experience

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the Berkshire Mountain Cottage with a friend. The owners, Bruce and Shira, were friendly and accommodating. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. We were there during an unseasonably hot weekend, so sitting on the lovely screened in porch was not really much of an option for us. It would have been great to have an air conditioner in the second bedroom. However, we were able to work around this by leaving doors open from the air conditioned main bedroom and living room. All in all, we had a lovely stay, and we would definitely come back.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a lovely three-day stay at Bruce and Shira's cottage. It was really well-located to going out to dinner in Great Barrington, and to seeing many of the other local sights, such as Bash Bish falls, Benedict Pond, and Mt. Washington State Forest. The cottage is pleasantly decorated and comfortable, with AC in the living room and a ceiling fan in the bedroom. Everything was very clean, and Shira and Bruce were friendly and helpful via email when we made the reservation, and stocked our fridge with a few basics for our arrival. The cooking area is a just a small kitchenette, but well equipped with utensils; it was perfect for breakfast and snacks, and for preparing the dinner we cooked out on the grill. The property was really quiet and peaceful too. Overall, a really pleasant experience and a good value.

Clean, convenient location, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this cottage and enjoyed concerts at Tanglewood, Shakespeare theater, fabulous restaurants, and hiking in the area. There was a bottle of wine and snack on the table when we arrived. Kitchen is equipped but there is not a full sized stove. We loved being in the Berkshire Mountains and would choose this cozy cottage again the next time we are in the area! Owners were very easy to reach and gladly responded to our questions.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long MLK weekend of skiing and LOVED it. The cottage is very charming and well decorated. The property is beautiful and the kids loved running around in the snow out front. The porch entry was perfect for getting our ski gear off before going into the house. We also loved their collection of old vinyl LP's. The reservation and key exchange was easy. We would definitely stay here again for a weekend escape from the city!

The cottage is extremely pleasant, cozy, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is extremely pleasant and cozy on beautifully landscaped grounds. It is genuinely warm (which can be a real issue in the Berkshires that are often damp and chilly). The place is in excellent shape with all the basic necessities of making breakfast and lunch. The area is quiet and quite lovely.
