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.

Beautiful home for a weekend getaway with the girls!

  • 5 of 5

The Red Barn provided us with everything we needed for a relaxing and fun weekend. The home was clean, the kitchen well stocked, the beds were comfortable, the decor was charming, and the open floor plan on the back of the house was perfect for socializing with a large group. While we did not need to contact the homeowner during our stay as everything was in perfect working condition, prior to our visit she was very responsive and helpful in answering questions. I would highly recommend this beautiful vacation home and would love to return to it in the future.

Absolutely charming

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely charming! When you walk into the Red Barn, it feels like you're home. Hang your coat and sweater to the right, sit down on the bench and kick your shoes off to the left. The kitchen is well-equipped with nice pots and pans.

The master bedroom bed is first class which is always our choice when renting a home. I could not find a crib for our granddaughter in the area and Laura was so nice that she found a crib for our granddaughter, delivered the crib to the house! We love the Red Barn and will certainly vacation there again. Best memories, wishing for more. I forgot to add that Great Barrington is only a few minutes away from the Red Barn with the best grocery stores!

Great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

Rented the Restored Barn house for a weekend away with college friends. The house was beautiful and spacious, the kitchen/living room layout was especially great. Nicely decorated with roomy bedrooms. Laura, the owner, left easy directions and was happy to answer any questions I had leading up to the weekend. The house is in a great location as it close to town, but still feels tucked away.

We went hiking in nearby Lenox and Sheffield (but discovered trail heads in closer proximity to do next time)and enjoyed the town of Great Barrington. We have been renting homes in the area for a number of years and this was by far our favorite. Can't wait to come back!
