Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 12-15)

A perfect place to celebrate the big holidays or the simple joys of time with the people you love. Picture preparing a feast in the state-of-the-art kitchen complete with Gaggenau ovens and gas and electric cook tops; granite counter tops; Monogram refrigerator; three dishwashers; and wine cooler. Serve the meal in the formal dining room with views of the mountains and room for 20 or in the casual breakfast nook.

Then, depending on the season, head outside for some sledding in the back yard, cross-country skiing in the pastures or a leisurely country walk on one of the most pristine hills in the county; relax in the hot tub or take a dip in the heated pool; sip a cocktail on the patio or porch while the kids play in view in the play house or the fields that surround the house.

Catamount Ski Area is a six minute drive away. Tanglewood, many other cultural attractions and restaurants are nearby.

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen of us in our extended family came from four different states to enjoy a week in the Berkshires at this fine Egremont home. For seventeen years we had gathered at a different spot in the Berkshires, but this year we tried something new.

The age range included grade-schoolers, teenagers, middle-agers, and grandparents, and there was something for everyone--from the refreshing pool, nicely set aside from the house through the hedges, to the fully equipped gourmet kitchen, to the game/TV room with foosball and air conditioning, to the wide wrap-around porch with cool breezes and comfortable furniture for reading and relaxing. The piano and extensive library were added bonuses for this family of musicians and readers. The house was beautifully situated on the property, with long-range mountain views from the front and beautiful rolling farmland from the back. The long dining room table fit all 13 of us, and the screened porch off the kitchen served as a perfect breakfast room.

Situated in Egremont, just outside Great Barrington, the house has the best of both worlds, with rural farmland surrounding it and tennis courts/park nearby, but just minutes away from grocery stores (Big Y) and restaurants (Baba Louie's Pizza is always a favorite). The local air strip just down the road was a fun outing, getting to see small planes up close. Of course, the Tanglewood Music Festival was a destination, and very accessible from this spot, as are all the towns in the western Berkshires.

The caretaker lives down the road and was attentive to our needs. I would recommend this home to any family as a relaxing and fun gathering place.

A Magical Place for Family, Friends and Groups

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to find this house when my then-fiance and I were looking for a "home base" for our Berkshires wedding party. What's so special about it is that you can, for a week or a weekend, feel like you're in your own amazing country retreat. There aren't a million rules and restrictions, simply treat the place with respect and leave it as you found it. When I tentatively floated the idea of hosting a pre-wedding pig roast the response was totally enthusiastic and easy. We wound up having 125 people, 4 generations, swimming, great food, slip and slides. It was amazing. That was 2009. We returned in 2013 with 4 other couples who had attended the wedding for a reunion with a dozen little kids. It was the hottest weekend of the summer and yet the breeze blew through the house (which sits on a hill) and everyone was cool and comfortable.

The grounds are expansive, the house is huge and rambling but still barefoot comfortable, there's total privacy and the nearby hiking, biking and cute little towns can't be beat. Most of all, the owners are great people. You can feel it in their house.

fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

My family has spent several weeks in this home, and it's wonderful. Spacious, clean, well-appointed, in a lovely spot with both privacy and gorgeous views, very near downtown Great Barrington, which is charming, and a short drive from Stockbridge and other Berkshire towns, we could not recommend it more highly and look forward eagerly to our next stay.
