About the property

Lovely 4 bedroom, 3 story classic Victorian home in Castle Hill neighborhood!

Amenities: 4 bedrooms, 2 and ½ baths – sleeps 8 total ( max 6 adults), WiFi, cable TV, good cell service, central AC, fenced yard, screened-in porch, covered front porch and deck with Mountain views.

Built in 1903, this updated and yet stunning example of Victorian craftsmanship is a perfect place for family and friends looking to find an easy getaway in the Berkshires. The interior is sunny and bright with a clean and modern design. The exterior is classic Victorian with several outdoor features such as a covered front porch with outdoor seating, screened-in supper porch, and large back deck with barbeque and views and access to the fenced-in yard, this home offers wonderful possibilities.

The sought after, well-regarded neighborhood called “The Hill” is a throw back to an easier time where children actually climb trees and ride their bikes in the street. An easy 5-minute walk will find you in the center of downtown Great Barrington for a meal, shopping, shows, cinema, galleries and much more. This home is also an easy walk (or 1 minute drive) to Lake Mansfield Park for swimming (sandy beach with lifeguard on duty!) picnicking, or having fun on the climber/swing sets. No motorboats allowed but canoes/kayaks are available for rent in town or bring your own! This lovely in-town location is 5 minutes from Ski Butternut, 15 minutes to Catamount, 25 minutes to Tanglewood and 25 minutes to Jacob’s Pillow.

The house is well appointed on the ground floor level with a large living room, music parlor including a grand piano, large eat-in kitchen (at the counter seats 5), separate dining room area with large farm table and French café chairs with seating for 8, ½ bath, and large pantry/laundry room. The living room and parlor comfortably seats 10 guests. There are inviting touches throughout the house such as: lovely artwork, books, games, puzzles and toys to entertain both children and adults! The kitchen is well equipped with high-end stainless appliances and All-Clad and Le Creuset cookwear. All tools needed for baking are available including a Kitchen-aid stand mixer. Kitchen includes a large assortment of high-end small appliance including microwave, food processor, blender, coffee maker and 4-slot toaster. At the kitchen sink, a Multi-Pure water filter system is built-in. The deck and screened porch are accesses from both the kitchen and the living room.

The second floor has 2 bedrooms: the master suite with a king bed and full bathroom with tub/shower combination, ensuite. The second large bedroom has a queen bed and access to the 2nd floor porch. A second bath is on this floor and shares a full bathroom, shower only.

The third floor is a delightful converted attic space with two rooms. One bedroom has 4 twin beds: 2 extra long singles and the third is a twin trundle, which can be made up as a twin, two twins or a king-- perfect for a group sleepover. The other room has one extra-long twin and small trundle bed. All three floors have central air-conditioning.

The extra-long twins have organic rubber mattress and due to their generous length and quality, these mattresses are very comfortable for adults as well as children.

Outside you have a delightful front sitting porch and lovely cottage gardens with pathways leading to the front walk and side parking area. The back sun deck is private, with outdoor seating and a grill for dining al fresco. There is also a cozy screen tea porch, on the side of the house, accessed through the family room. The yard is fenced with a delightful playhouse!

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Blue Hill was perfect for my family. From the beautiful grounds to the adorable kid's rooms in the attic, the house offers families a perfect escape an easy walk to town, the Gazebo, a playground, shopping dining, and coffee shops. The beds were amazingly comfortable, there were plenty of extra blankets for cooler nights and the house was well laid out for our family to enjoy without keeping the kiddo awake. The kitchen had great, updated appliances, all of which were easy to use. Both Berkshire Rental Properties and the homeowner were super easy to work with and the home owner was easily accessible to answer questions during our stay. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
