About E. David

We have been living in the Berkshires for more than 20 years. When our children left the nest, we started "filling the nest" with guests we enjoy hosting.

E. David purchased this house in 2012

Why E. David chose Berkshires

A friend who renovated this house and offered it to us. We fell in love with the gorgeous view, the location on 'Hill of Great Barrington' and decided to buy it.

Guests who have stayed at our house say the picture do not do it justice. It is difficult to describe how wonderful it is. Please read our reviews.

What makes this house unique

A home away from home. We provide more amenities than most, so that you do not have to bring so many things from your house (e.g paper goods, fruits, bread, wine, cappuccino, and bathroom supply such as shampoo, soap, lotion, toothpaste, etc)..

We also provide detailed guides to our area, including things to do, massage/spa, art & galleries, historic homes, shopping & restaurants.

This house is a short drive to Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, Shakespeare & Co. etc. 10 minute walk to downtown Great Barrington which is home to many delightful restaurants, shops, galleries, and theatre venues (Mahaiwe Performing Arts & Triplex Movie Theater) Three minute walk to Lake Mansfield- a summer favorite for swimming (lifeguard on site), kayaking, picnicking, fishing hiking & biking. Walk to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning, listen to a concert on the town green (during the summer), or just relax on the gazebo with a glass of wine. During summer there are many activities & events every day for people of all ages. During the fall, the view from the house is even more stunning, during the winter the house you can visit nearby skiing resorts such as Butternut, Catamount. Our property is 8 mins drive to Butternut Ski area (3.8 miles), and 15 mins drive to Catamount ski area (8miles).

Perfect for our group of 12. Enough beds for everyone, big open space to hang out on Main floor and owners provided so much to make our stay special. I look forward to staying there again!

perfect home for family get-together

  • 5 of 5

With a lovely wine, bread and fruit basket waiting for us, we knew we were in for a special treat. Our family lives in 3 different cities, so when we have a chance to be together a private home is our 1st choice. And this one gave us plenty of space, scenery and special touches. Kitchen was fully stocked for the one meal we cooked together. It was perfect!

We also enjoyed the area - two wonderful restaurants, the Farmers' Market, the nearby lake, and lovely walks. Everything was as "advertised", and we really had a wonderful weekend.

BEAUTIFUL HOME FOR A BLISSFUL BERKSHIRE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious, and very clean home that easily sleeps 10! Wonderful indoor and outdoor space to hang out as a large group. Contact with the owner is fantastic and very thorough! We were greeted with fresh fruit and a nice bottle of wine. Navigating the house is easy as there are many helpful signs in addition to an informative DVD. The location of the house is walking distance from Lake Mansfield as well as downtown. The house is comfortable and makes for a relaxing stay. A short distance from various Berkshire attractions makes this spot very desirable.

Lovely home in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The house was very cozy and had plenty of room for our family of 8. I think it is nicer than the pictures online. The three full baths were really nice and no one had to wait for the shower when we were getting ready to go out. We were able to walk into town and to the lake and it was very close to Butternut for skiing. We wished that we had brought our ice skates because people were skating on the lake. The owners were lovely and provided A LOT of information about the house when we arrived which was a little overwhelming. We had never rented a house that was the primary residence of the owner before but once we got used to the idea it turned out great.

This is a beautiful home with a wonderful view in a great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home over this Thanksgiving weekend. My husband and I were celebrating our 45th Wedding Anniversary with our family. I have never written a review before, but I always appreciated reading other reviews and this is a great home and I wanted to reciprocate.

This is a fabulous, immaculate and very spacious home within walking distance to Great Barrington and down the block from Lake Mansfield. Ephrat and Benny were a pleasure to work with. We appreciated all of their recommendations and the tour of their home and how everything worked. They even gave us a basket of fruit and a bottle of champagne to help us celebrate.

The kitchen is gorgeous and the home is equipped with everything you can imagine. Although we didn't use it because it was too cold, there is a great screened in patio and a lovely deck off the dining room. The view of the mountains was beautiful even in late November. We were very lucky it snowed a few days before we arrived. Our grandchildren loved making a snowman, playing in the snow and making smores at the fire pit.

We took long walks around the lake and enjoyed the cute town of Great Barrington. Most important, this wonderful home enabled our family to have a great time together!!

We highly recommend this home to anyone who is visiting the Berkshires and would like to make their own happy memories!!

Sprawling, welcoming home with great outdoor spaces

  • 5 of 5

This house was as advertised on the website and was perfect for our family. It's a sprawling house with lots of bedrooms and bathrooms, a comfortable living room, a beautiful kitchen, a screened in porch and many decks and patios on which to enjoy the beautiful setting. We were in the area for a family wedding, and it was ideal, both for our family to stay at and for other members of the extended family to drop by. The house was clean and showed much pride of ownership. We would definitely recommend it to others and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this beautiful review! It is so nice to hear how each group enjoys the house. I am so happy to hear that both your group and the guests that dropped by loved the house and the unique gathering spaces it offers. We would be more than happy to accommodate you again. Please keep us in mind.
