About the Owner

Scott is an architect and Ann is a teacher and we love the natural beauty of Great Barrington, hiking, the cultural activities and the great restuarants and local farm fresh food at the markets. The Berkshire Coop is in walking distance to our house and we are frequent visitors.

Cottage In The Heart Of Great Barrington
Great Barrington Berkshires

Great house, great location, great house!!

  • 5 of 5
This 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath home was absolutely perfect for our family of 4 ski week getaway. Tucked right off of Main Street in beautiful Great Barrington; we were in the absolute best location you could ask for! The house is so charming and special. As an interior designer; I appreciated every nook and cranny of this little gem. There was every accommodation you could think of in this house from Netflix, cable, great library of DVDs, comfortable beds, washer/dryer, fantastic eat-in kitchen and cozy family room with a 1/2 bath right on the main floor. The full bath upstairs was shared by me, my husband and 2 boys... Although used to having our own bathrooms back home; this totally worked...and there was no shortage of hot water:) A welcome folder upon our arrival and a call to make sure we arrived safely was just the finishing touches to our stay at this wonderful house. We will definitely be coming back....

Our two families really enjoyed our stay at this lovely, cozy, and very clean cottage. It is located in the heart of Great Barrington and an easy 5-7 minute walk to the food co-op and many boutique shops, cafes, restaurants and the cheese shop, which we love! The owners were very responsive and helpful while booking the property. We had no issues at all during our stay. We are looking to book another stay in 2015!

Our family enjoyed all the amenities we would have at home: the kitchen was fully equipped, plenty of board games for the family, the beds were comfy and inviting, wi-fi and bluetooth worked well, and most importantly, the home was well-heated. Thank you Ann and Scott for a lovely winter stay!

Perfect winter getaway!

My husband & two young kids stayed at the cottage in January, and we had a wonderful time! It was super clean, cozy, and had everything we needed for our stay. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the house is outfitted with all the essentials. We loved cooking in the kitchen and enjoyed warming up by the cozy gas stove. They even had a nice selection of toys and books for the kids. The owners are very helpful and were available to answer any questions we had. Highly recommended!

Cozy, relaxing and great for families

We stayed with our three year old and had a wonderful vacation. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We loved that it was easy to cook but there were also so many great restaurants nearby. From the bedrooms there is a beautiful view of the sunset over the mountains and the town. Our daughter loved walking to the playgrounds and to get ice cream. Great hikes, lots to do, and friendly neighbors. Very quiet and relaxing.

From the Owner

This cottage is charming, has wonderful light and a beautiful setting. We love sitting on our porch, or reading by the fire from our gas cast iron stove. At night the sky is filled with stars, and all is quiet and peaceful.

From the Owner

We are in walking distance to town. We enjoy attending events at the Mahaiwe Theater, seeing movies at the Triplex Cinema, having coffee at Ruby's or enjoying pastries at Patisserie Lenox in the center of town. This is a real town with a wonderful library, hardware stores, Martin's - the best breakfast in town, and the best Japanese restuarant we have eaten at - Bizen. We love the small gourmet resturant Allium, homemade pasta at Fiori and the great pubs in town, all within waking distance of our house. There are a few different venues to listen to live music right in town. We walk to the Berkshire Coop and buy groceries, choose exotic cheeses at Rubiners Cheese shop. The Farmers Market that runs from mid May through October on Saturday mornings is a must. Once we discovered The Music Store, we were hooked on this town, a place to buy ukuleles and strings of all kinds. There is also an art supply store and three different high end toy stores, plus let us not forget the best hand crafted ice cream -SoCo. Within a twenty minute driving distance are cute towns, Tanglewood, the Norman Rockwell Museum and the Hancock Shaker Village. There are so many high quality theater productions within twenty minutes, that there are too many to list. For skiers, it is a ten minute drive to Ski Butternut and about fifteen minutes to Catamount Mountain.
