Overview

About the property

This beautiful and immaculate historical home, with large open living spaces and beautiful exposed beams, has a perfect location It is a 3 min drive to the center of beautiful Great Barrington, only 10 min drive to the Ski Resort Butternut! Great swimming only a few blocks away at Lake Mansfield! It easily accomodates two families with areas for privacy and quiet as well as beautiful spaces for family and friends to build special memories together. The house sleeps 10 very comfortably.

This spectacular home was built by one of the Berkshires' most outstanding post and beam builders, D. Lanoue. The frame, first raised circa 1858 in Duanesburg, NY, was restored and reassembled in 1993. The 42 feet by 30 feet form is hand-hewn of mostly hemlock timber held together with wooden pegs.

In addition, the wide pine plank flooring is from the threshing room of the original barn. Deceptively simple in outward appearance, the interior is beautifully decorated with French Provincial antiques and Primitive accessories. Many modern conveniences include all new appliances, dyed plaster walls, an excellent central air conditioning throughout the house, WIFI, Ipod docking station, a DSL line and cable tv with 100 channels.

Just wonderful ! a perfect 10

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful 4 night getaway we savvy senior ladies had at the beautiful " Red Barn". We now have traveled together often enough to appreciate how special this house and location was. It now sets the bar so much higher to meet for our next journey. This house had EVERYTHING you could ever want in the most serene setting.

Absolutely perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and we couldn't have been more delighted with the whole experience. The Barn is absolutely beautiful and the pictures you n the website (even though they are wonderful ) do not do it justice. The whole barn is very tastefully decorated and in keeping with its age. The furniture is very comfortable and the whole place is exceptionally clean. We had everything we needed for the stay and more and the location, the garden, the outside furniture and BBQ all added to a fantastic stay. Club de to the lovely town of Great Barrington, fabulous trails and good restaurants.

On the occasions I contacted Laura she got back to me straight away.

Even though we were only a party of two the place would easily accommodate 10 comfortably. I would definitely return and can't recommend it highly enough! Thanks Laura.

Great Weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year in a row my college friends and I chose to stay at Restored Barn home. It was even better the second time around. Great layout and nice outdoor space. My group was a mix of couples and families and it worked out well for everyone. The open floor plan of the kitchen and living room makes for a great social aspect. The home is minutes from town and a number of nearby activities. This year we spent some time over at Butternut and then ventured over to Hilltop Winery. All and all a great weekend!

Barn life

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property inside and out, conveniently located to the town of Great Barrington. Small lake (pond) within easy walk, with accessible trails and swimming. Lots of things to do and see in the general area. Owner very accommodating, would love to come back.

A gorgeous, comfortable home with plenty of room in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We retuned to the red barn for a second year after our wonderful stay last year. The second time around was as comfortable and relaxing as the first. We enjoyed the beautifully appointed, clean, ample space and well equipped kitchen. From the house we easily rode our bikes to nearby Lake Mansfield and to town (though be ready for the hill on the way back). We cooked many of our own meals and enjoyed hours reading on hammocks, playing ping pong and watching movies as well as exploring the many glories of the Berkshires.

What a great home

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many homes with our kids and this one comes close to perfect. The rooms were spacious, the pictures exactly represent the home, and the kitchen was well-appointed. There weren't a lot of tchotchkes or breakables around, so I didn't feel nervous having the kids there. The yard, patio and grill were well maintained and we really enjoyed dining al fresco. Finally, the place is steps from the town lake, a big draw for us. Laura was also kind enough to recommend a babysitter. Thank you for a great trip to Great Barrington!
