A beautiful home and sized for our entire family and grandchildren.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! Had plenty of room for our entire family of 4 children and their spouses and 5 grandchildren with room to spare. We loved the fireplace and kept it going the entire visit. The home is secluded yet easy access to Great Barrington for any needed items. We had a great time and hope for an opportunity to do it again.

The caretaker and owner were wonderful and provided us with zero time pressure for moving in or leaving. Many many thanks to the town of Great Barrington for their rapid response for an unanticipated emergency we had during our stay. We are forever greatful.

Friends Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 8 friends that take an annual vacation together. This home was perfect for our large group.

The home and grounds are absolutely beautiful. All bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and decorated beautifully. The kitchen is amazing! We enjoyed drinking our morning coffee in the gazebo and watching the turkey and deer meander across the grounds. I highly recommend this property for anyone. Whether it's friends, family, large group or even a small group. Perfect in every way.
