After visiting the Berkshires for 20 years we bought the home of our dreams in a very special location. We are fortunate to have purchased it from the original owners.The home was designed and built by Gail Fein, a well-traveled artist that spent many years in the Berkshires. After traveling throughout the world and spending summers in many locales, she settled on a permanent move to Great Barrington.
Margaret purchased this House in 2015
Why Margaret chose Great Barrington
The home was built on a 200 acre farm that was subdivided into 10 residences. The home is off a private road, off Lake Buel Road, situated against Butternut Mountain. Once you arrive you will experience the same serenity and beauty Gail did when she purchased the lot.
What makes this House unique
The home was uniquely designed using the highest quality materials, enabling visitors to experience the beautiful surroundings and tranquility of the area. From the chef kitchen to the master bedroom, one will find that no expense was spared.

Beautiful, comfortable, well located/well stocked home in great location
We enjoyed a wonderful extended stay at 8 Butternut Lane in July 2018. The house is architecturally interesting, spacious and beautifully decorated, with an amazingly well-stocked kitchen and everything you need for a picnic at Tanglewood. Margaret is a great and very responsive host. The location is perfect: very quiet and peaceful, but only 10 minutes from heart of Great Barrington, about 25 minutes to Tanglewood and short drives to great hikes and the many other attractions/excellent restaurants. We loved having meals on the deck, sitting around the firepit at night, etc. All in all, a memorable stay.
We loved the house, ideal for family skiing at Butternut!!
We stayed for a week for skiing at Butternut with young kids. The house was perfect, spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated, amazing modern open kitchen, hot tub, crib, only minutes from the slopes and town. The owner is very helpful and organized and the process is extremely easy. Given the house has 3 floors with 2 bedrooms upstairs, main rooms and kitchen on main floor and 2 bedrooms on lower level it is very convenient for 2 families. We had a wonderful time and would love to come back!
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed our home and your time in the Berkshires, hope to will return soon!
Shhhh. Best kept secret in the Berkshires!
We are a multi-generational family spread across the globe that gathers periodically for quality time together. We were looking for a cosy, comfortable and gracious house that feels like a home. Margaret's is exactly that and more.
Not only is Margaret incredibly helpful, welcoming and accommodating, the house is exactly as described and then some. We love to cook and wind up spending more time in the kitchen than any other room. The kitchen is fully equipped with top-end appliances right down to the little niceties you didn't know you even needed.
The round dining table was perfect for accommodating 8 easily and 10 in a pinch. We wound up playing board games at the table for hours on end when we were snowed in. So incredibly lovely!
The house is such perfection I'm loath to write such a glowing review for fear we won't be able to reserve it when next we have the opportunity to gather. If I could move in to Margaret's today, I would!
Great Berkshire house near Mountain, Town, Lakes, Music.
We had a wonderful stay in this spacious and clean and artistic home. It was easy to rent and easy to deal with owner and a property "overseer". The house has an open feel so you can cook in the kitchen while others sit by the fire. There are four bedrooms, but it is set up in a great way for two families to share (or for kids to get their own space) as two bedrooms are on the bottom floor of three floors and two others on the top floor, and kitchen, living space are in the middle. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms are airy and spacious. The showers and baths are great. Plenty of closet space and the house has everything you need and is easily accessible for a hassle free stay. Very close to Butternut (under 2 minute drive), close to Great Barrington (maybe 7 minutes) and Stockbridge. And so it is in an extremely convenient location. The house and area are extremely quiet but does not feel isolated. Just a minute up the road is an entrance to part of the Appalachian trail with a beautiful hiking section if you turn right up the hill and go for an hour. There is a lot of eclectic art and figures around this interesting house (be careful if you have kids who want to throw balls indoors but everything is displayed out of the way) . Heating and cooling is all up to date and simple. The woods behind the house are beautiful and there is an area for grilling and sitting. All in all, we could not have been more comfortable and we loved our Berkshires week.
Ski Mountains, great hiking including the Appalachian Trail, Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theater and more, all close by
