Amenities include: 3 bedrooms + additional sleep space with queen futon bed, 3 full baths, central ac, fireplace wifi internet, direct TV, heated pool, wraparound decks, screened gazebo with ambient fire pit, tiki bar lounge, gas grill and privacy! Sleeps 6 in beds and 8 total. No Smoking and non-shedding pets are considered.

The owners, who in 1987 built this 2200 square foot home, have been meticulously maintaining this lovely property and have now opened it up for renters to enjoy! Sitting far back from a quiet country road, on five (5) acres, this property offers peaceful privacy while still being only 15 minutes to the center of Great Barrington.

The heated pool is fully fenced and has been maintained to perfection. Summer living has an easy indoor–outdoor flow and winter rentals provide an easy 10 mins drive to ski Butternut!

Inside you have three bedrooms all located on the 2nd floor; the large master suite has a king sized bed, flat screen TV, and a large luxurious bath with two sinks, vanity, platform tub-with Bose radio/CD player for total relaxation, separate shower, and wardrobe room. There is a double futon bed, in the wardrobe room just off the master, to be used for additional sleeping. There are two other cozy bedrooms–one with a queen bed and the third has twin bunk beds with home office. These bedrooms share a full bathroom with tub/shower. There is also a new sleep space: a sleeper sofa which will sleep either one adult or 2 children in the living room! the house now sleeps 10 comfortably! The ground floor also has a full bathroom with shower only–complete with washer/dryer!

There is a 2-car garage with direct entry into the kitchen. The bright open kitchen has high-end stainless appliances, including a 6 burner gas Viking range, over-sized Viking fridge, additional oven, and not one but two prep islands allowing plenty of space to prep, cook, or hang out and chat at the island bar which comfortably seats 4. There is a separate formal dining rooms with wood burning fireplace which seats 10 guests. The Living room is an easy open space with flat screen TV and comfortable seating.

The lawn area is expansive and easy for soccer, touch football or a quick pick-up baseball game! The heated pool is wonderful with decks and comfortable seating, the screened gazebo with a ambient fire pit, provides coverage from insects....and the tiki bar prep station is so fun! Inside you have two small refrigerators, a prep area, sink, blender, microwave, and of course a CD player!

You are just 10 minutes to Ski Butternut and a quick 15 minutes ride to the center of Great Barrington.

You are also close to Canaan CT – just about 15 minutes.

The Berkshires offer so much for the vacationing traveler…. but with this lovely property, you may never want to leave the grounds!

Why Claudia Laslie: Berkshire Rental Properties chose Berkshires

I chose to manage this property for several reasons: the house is very easy to come into - it is super clean, bright and the amenities are terrific: pool, tiki bar, gas fireplace in dining room, luxurious master bath... plus the owners are a delight to work with!

What makes this house unique

While being about 12 minutes from Great Barrington, this is a lovely Berkshire setting with woods behind and a great open clearing in the front.

The grounds are very private, which is terrific because of the pool!

average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Comfortable, beautiful home with high-end everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hayes Hill for one week in August, 2013. The home and property are meticulously maintained and extremely comfortable. The kitchen appliances are top of the line, the master bedroom and bathroom are luxurious and the pool and tiki bar area are great and a lot of fun. Clearly the owners put a lot of thought and care into this house, nothing feels overlooked. We wish the hot tub had been open, but will have to return in the winter to enjoy it...

The property is very private, it felt like we were the only people for miles. Along those lines, the house is a solid 20+ minute drive from downtown Great Barrington, but with everything the house provides, you don't really have any reason to leave. The owners were very helpful, both before and during our stay and even left local menus and a list of supermarkets, etc. so we didn't have to do very much of our own research which was greatly appreciated.

Having a 1-year old, the house was particularly great for us (the convenience of the full kitchen and washer/dryer were invaluable), but I could easily see a group of adults enjoying this house for a fun getaway.

We'd recommend this property in a heartbeat and hope to be back.
