Santarella House Tyringham - Red Colonial

  • 5 of 5
We booked last minute in Tyringham to be close to Great Barrington and Butternut. When we arrived we were thrilled to feel the comfort and warmth of this house. Full of character and charm, uncluttered and well stocked, the house was perfect for our group. It is spacious and extremely clean and neat. The property is beautiful and the two fireplaces lovely. Main Rd is in a picturesque valley. We discovered a wonderful/hike walk up a hill - 1/2 a block from the house in woodland virtually untouched by people or homes - magic. The owners live near by. They are gracious and easy going. You will not regret a stay at Santarella. We look forward to another chance to make more memories in this magical house.
