Amazing view, great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for the weekend of my wedding, and we were so pleased with all aspects of our stay. The property itself was ideally located just a short walk, and even shorter drive from town. Though I didn't get to go for a dip in the lake, I did run past it in the morning when out for a jog, and it made for a very scenic run! We had a big family dinner on Friday evening, and there was plenty of space for everyone to eat and enjoy each other's company. As opposed to staying in separate rooms in a hotel, staying here made us feel like we were at home. It was such a pleasant weekend, and I would highly recommend this property to others looking for a spacious house near downtown in Great Barrington.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us stayed at this beautiful home, relaxing in the evenings, enjoying the view and taking advantage of the location to hike and explore the area during the day. The house surpassed our expectations, so well stocked and immaculate. In the evenings we would enjoy the terrace, cook out on the grill then sit around the fire pit to roast marshmallows for s'mores.

Locally, we enjoyed the hike to Bash Bish Falls and the Shaker Village. We would definately recommend this home to our friends.

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a good time. You are one of the few groups that actually checked out extensive spice collection. Glad to hear that you made good use of everything we supplied as well as the house and the location. Please keep us in mind for future vacations.

Beautiful home with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our quick getaway with friends with a lot of wonderful amenities we didn't have time to use! Very close to Main St to enjoy some local cuisine and plenty of room for us to hang out and socialize at the house.

Beautiful home, with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend in this beautiful home, celebrating a small wedding. The ceremony was actually performed down at the lake (a short walk from the house), but it might also have been on the beautiful patio looking out over the mountains. Instead we used the patio for the after-ceremony champagne toasts, before going out to dinner.

The write-up says 4 bedrooms, but there are actually 5 bedrooms, plus 3 ½ bathrooms. It is all very comfortable and nicely decorated. The common areas – living room, screened-in porch and stone patio – are really nice. The owners have left everything you could possibly need, especially in the kitchen and outside.

The owner was also extremely helpful in making local recommendations for restaurants, etc. which helped to make this wedding weekend memorable. All in all, a perfect place for this special weekend.

Owner's Response: Dear Wendy, It was so nice to host this small wedding and help you prepare and plan for it. This is the first wedding we had at this house. I am so happy to hear that you had such a nice time. I do believe this house can be a magical place for such occasions. I hope that in the upcoming years you will have many happy occasions to celebrate. Best, Ephrat

Wonderful stay in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

Benny & Ephrat are wonderful hosts and their house is beautiful. A large group (8 adults and 2 young kids) rented the house for the new year. The house was beautiful - great layout and there was plenty of space for everyone. It was well stocked with anything and everything you might needs - cooking supplies, toys for the little ones, toiletries, etc, etc. We hope to return again soon!

Great Place ot Stay in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for a family vacation. Easy driving distance to most things in the Berkshires, walking distance to Lake Mansfield and Great Barrington. The house itself had fantastic views with almost everything we could have asked for, including a smoker. Ephrat is incredibly well-organized, so you will be well taken care of during your stay.

One negative is the sound-proofing. You could hear most everything that was going on in the main kitchen and living area in the master bedroom on the first floor and up on the second floor.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your time at my property and thank you for taking such good care of it. I am sorry that you did not tell me about your experience with the noise. Unfortunately you arrived late and did not get the tour we usually give our guests. We do have a solution for the noise - we have fans that are used to move air, but also serve as sound insulators. Thank you for this review. In the future we will remember to point this out to guests that come late. Ephrat
