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.

Why Jeri Drucker 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.

House was just what we needed
Perfect for a two family get away. Close enough to walk to town on a nice day. Beautiful views all day long. Would recommend a stay at this house to anyone.
This was a great place to stay with our family for a week. It is conveniently located and just a short walk to Main Street in Great Barrington or Lake Mansfield. Plenty of room for everyone indoors and out. Thanks again for everything!
Great Wedding House!
We had a wonderful weekend and this home was a large part if it. We really loved the decor and personalized touches plus the beautiful garden was a great space to catch up with old friends. Jeri was great to coordinate with and very responsive. We had our questions answered before we arrived in a detailed e-mail with local recommendations as well!
Cozy Berkshire home next to lake and town!
Amazing house! So beautiful with a huge yard. Soo many beds could fit at least 13 people comfortably. The house looks just like the photos. Jeri is super helpful. So close to Great Barrington town and Lake Mansfield. Would definitely come here again. Thank you!!
The best decision we made for our wedding!
Renting this cozy home was truly the best decision we made for our wedding this summer! It was incredible to be able to have all of our family and friends from out-of-town stay in one place, as opposed to scattered throughout the Berkshires in extremely pricey hotels. The owners of the house were so generous with their belongings that it really made us feel like we were at home. On the night of our wedding, we slept 17 people (using a comfy chair!). It is well laid-out and can house several couples and then many singles. It is also a very short but hilly walk to Main St, Great Barrington. I would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to spend sometime with a large crowd in the Berkshires!
