About the property

3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, sleeps 6 in beds, 8 max!

Castle Townhouse is a delightful new listing, completely renovated, and in a wonderful central location - just moments to the center of Great Barrington and a few minutes walk to lovely Lake Mansfield! The portico welcomes you into the front foyer, from the wraparound front/side porch (with covered) outdoor seating. Just inside, there is a large main closet perfect for all of your Berkshire gear. The main floor is tidy with a sumptuous living room, complete with new flat screen smartTV, and very cozy seating. The kitchen is perfection with all new stainless appliances, small wall mounted TV, counter seating for 2, huge island for prepping and a country style table that seats 6+. There is a darling small deck off the kitchen door which houses a gas grill during the warmer months. Upstairs you will find all 3 bedrooms: the master bedroom with queen bed, the guest bedroom with queen bed and a third guest bedroom with double ( extra wide) bunk beds. This third bedroom could sleep 2 adults, 2 kids, or even 4 smaller kids ...or a grandparent who wants to bunk in with small ones... there are many possibilities! These three bedrooms share a very large tiled full bathroom with a tub/shower combination along with a large stacked washer and dryer. There is a 1/2 bath on the ground floor as well. Outside, you have the side deck with seating and the kitchen deck with a grill. There is room for two cars with off-street parking in the summer and room for one car during the winter holiday available periods. You are literally just minutes to walk to the Mahaiwe Theatre or to the Castle street Cafe.... beyond that is all of Great Barrington to explore! This is truly a marvelous location!

About Claudia Laslie: Berkshire Rental Properties

Hello! I am Claudia Laslie, owner and creator of Berkshire Rental Properties, specializing in both long and short term vacation rentals, throughout the Southern Berkshires, since 2005. My role is to act as liaison between renter and homeowner and to assist the owner in preparing their rental so that renters have a wonderful experience and want to return to the Berkshires again and again.

I moved to Great Barrington in 2003 along with my two children who were quite young at the time. Looking to supplement my income, I would clean my house top to bottom, pack my kids into their car seats, and rent out my house for weekends. In talking about it with friends, one thing lead to another and before long I was helping others to do the same! My company has come a long way from those early vacation rental pioneering days... thank goodness. BRP provides seasoned guidance to both homeowners as they prepare their homes as well as to potential renters to help them find the best property that fits their needs. I also assist with long term rentals, both furnished and unfurnished.

I am a licensed MA real estate broker represented by Lance Vermeulen Real Estate Inc. If are ready to think about buying your first home, down-sizing your current, looking for an investment property (my specialty!) or finding that second home, I'd be happy to discuss your goals with you and go see some properties!

The Mission:

Berkshire Rental Properties aspires to deliver clean well-prepared homes, through honest advertising, to the mutual satisfaction of both homeowner and guest, by making meaningful connections.

Berkshire Rental Properties is a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Home Creative LLC.

Why Claudia Laslie: Berkshire Rental Properties chose Great Barrington

Every inch of this property has just been renovated; it is rare to find a rental home so fresh and clean! Not to mention in a great location with so many shops and restaurants within a short walk of your front door! ....All we need is you!

What makes this house unique

Super central location: easy walk-to Great Barrington town center, or to lake Mansfield. You are still close to Tanglewood, BTF, and less than 5 minutes to ski Butternut! Plus, everything is new in the house!!

Wonderful summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Since we stayed here during some of the hottest summer days, let me begin by praising the air conditioning. Silent, efficient and with seperate controls in each room.

The house is like new and in a perfect location. Only a 2 block walk to get to main street in Great Barrington. A perfect stroll for our morning cup of coffee or evening dinner.

From Great Barrington it is a short drive to Jacob's Pillow, Tanglewood, many theaters and museums. We have stayed in Great Barrington many times and this is now our favorite place!

Wonderful stay in the Berkshires!

  • 5 of 5

From the time I inquired about the property to the time we left, everything was handled beautifully, and our family vacation was wonderful! The Berkshire property group was incredibly responsive and extremely easy to work with-- everything was explained well and our questions were answered immediately. The house is incredibly well located-- we walked to downtown Great Barrington for dinner and a movie, were able to drive 5 minutes to Butternut, and I was able to ride at a stable 10 minutes away. The house itself is incredibly well appointed and comfortable. The owners were so thoughtful-- there was a very clear, comprehensive welcome book detailing all about the area. They even left us a welcome basket! So nice! The furniture is beautiful, and the kitchen is totally stocked. We love to cook, and were thrilled with the choice of pots and pans, and everything we needed! The home is open and airy-- the photos don't do it justice! Parking was a breeze, and we were cozy in the nice beds at night. We'd definitely come back here to stay! Thank you!

Christmas 2015

  • 5 of 5

This house worked perfectly for our family of 5. It’s within walking distance of town. We had a lovely dinner the first night we were there at a Café which is less than a five minute walk from the house. Everything in the town of Great Barrington is easy to get to: the Performance Arts Center, restaurants, yoga studios, shopping…. The house was comfortable and clean and the new kitchen is very nicely setup and equipped. We came to ski at two mountains which are both very nearby. There is a utility room for trash and recyclable that is big enough for skis, boots and poles. My wife enjoyed a massage at a spa on the southern end of town. We also took a few hikes at Monument mountain and Bash Bish Falls, and even just up the road to Lake Mansfield. At the end of the day, it was nice to come back to the quiet comfort of the house. We would highly recommend this house.
