About the Property
sleeps 10 plus(winter)10-14+(summer),sleepin porches,guest house etc., 2 baths
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.
