About Russell Stein
We moved up to the Berkshires with our kids in 2010 having lived in NYC for many years. We love it up here for the year round sports, skiing/snowboarding, outdoor activities, culture and dining. Our house is perfectly situated. Close to everything but very quiet and not isolated. Equal distance to Catamount and Butternut!
Russell Stein purchased this House in 2012
Why Russell Stein chose Great Barrington
We love our house as there are plenty of spaces to congregate both inside and out and upstairs and downstairs. Its very spacious so you never feel cramped. If you love to cook, like we do, you will love our high end Chef's kitchen with all the equipment you will need to whip up those tasty meals!
What makes this House unique
Private, yet close to town and almost equidistance to Ski Butternut and Catamount Ski.

Charming House with everything you need to "move in"
We spent 2 months in this amazing house just outside of Great Barrington. The location is fantastic to access gourmet market, town of GB, Hudson, CT and of course the culture of the Berkshires. The setting is beautiful, private and lush. The house is very well maintained and we especially loved the kitchen and outdoor BBQ. Russ (the owner) was always available and responsive. This is a great place for a couple or family, lots of space to spread out and to be together.
Wonderfully appointed home with great amenities
A group of eight of us rented this house for the weekend, and it was truly amazing. The entire house has been updated with modern amenities but retains great farmhouse charm. We took advantage of everything the house had to offer including the large modern kitchen, hot tub, fire pit, and the supercool screening room. Russ & Rachel were great hosts, and we look forward to renting this house again.
Jed: Thanks so much for selecting us for your stay in the Berkshires. I am so glad you had a great time, Please come again!
Perfect House for Extended Family Vacation!
We could not have selected a more perfect house for a two-week vacation in the Berkshires. It was spacious, clean, extremely well-maintained and equipped, and set on an absolutely stunning and secluded property. We would return in a heartbeat.
There was more than enough space (indoor and out) for 9 of us across three generations (one set of grandparents, two adult children + their spouses, three grandchildren) to spend a comfortable and relaxing extended vacation. When we all wanted to be together there were multiple places for us to gather...and when someone needed alone time, there were many options for that too.
The kitchen is spacious and extraordinarily well equipped, with a layout that lent itself perfectly to preparing and serving group meals. The outdoor space is beautifully maintained. Most of the yard is visible from inside the house, which makes it perfect for kids to run around outside while the adults are inside or on the porch. And because the house is situated so far off the road, it felt very safe to let the kids run around outside by themselves.
The house itself is incredibly well located - 5 minutes from Great Barrington (shops, restaurants, grocery stores, ice cream...) as well as to any number of swimming holes, waterfalls, hikes, and outdoor adventures. And it's a short ride to Lenox, Stockbridge, and beyond. We did something different every day for two weeks and still have things we wanted to do on our list.
The owners were extremely responsive and helpful before and during our stay, and provided detailed information about every aspect of the house's operation (as well as great recommendations for local things-to-do.)
We recommend this house without hesitation or reservation. Many thanks to the owners for opening their beautiful home to us and others!
We are so glad you had a wonderful vacation. You and your family are always welcome to stay again!
Very nice new home close to everything!
I stayed at this property in July - with my two sons (ages 8 and 10) and a dear friend from Australia with her teenaged daughter. We could not ask for more lovely, clean, updated and comfortable accommodations. The home is set back in a private lot but still within a couple miles of town, and really ideally located for exploring the southern Berkshires. We enjoyed the fire pit, the jacuzzi, the incredible stocked cook's kitchen, and the very comfortable media room, where we tucked away at night with the kids to watch movies. The spacious bedrooms, with ensuite baths, gave us privacy and space. The owners are responsive and helpful, and it felt much like we were at a private inn. The children -- from the 8 year old to the 14 year old - loved their experience too. I rarely take the time to write reviews, but very much wanted to share our nice experience!
I am glad you all had such a great time. Please come again!
Perfect for a Berkshire vacation. The listing accurately desribes the location, as the house is conveniently located. It is clean, well maintained, spacious, fully equipped and the amenities are many.
It is definitely a "home away from home."
The owner was most helpful in answering questions and concerns and I would highly recommend this
property as well as returning for a vacation.
Loads to do in the area - Jacobs Pillow, Berkshire Lab Theater, Mass Mocha ( a must art gallery- in Williamstown) Allium is a great restaurant.and gypsy joynt a fun lunch restaurant.
Thanks so much for your kind words. I am glad everyone had a great time. Please feel free to stay with us again!
Family gathering (six adults) - perfect setting for relaxation, comfortable dining, and convenient to town.
We could not be happier! Home is lovely with many amenities. Hope to stay again next year!
Thanks so much. I am glad that you and your party had such a great time! You are all welcome back next year!
