A private, centrally located 1-bedroom apartment suite in 1888 owner-occupied Carriage House, set up on a hill off the road in the beautiful Berkshire Hills. 4 min. to downtown Gt. Barrington. Although the apartment is in the same building, it has a totally separate access via a long deck with privacy, mostly surrounded by trees.

The space
Shed your tensions, rest, enjoy this beautiful area & rejuvenate! Light and comfortable, the private apartment consists of a comfortably furnished living/dining area, electric fireplace, desk, dining table/chairs, TV, DVD player, and WiFi. There is a small but well-equipped kitchenette, including pots and pans, dishes, mini fridge, stove and sink, silverware; a bedroom with comfortable queen mattress, a/c, closet, linens, and bath including towels, soaps, paper products, hairdryer & a second closet, with ironing board and iron. A private French door entrance from the living room onto the deck has a table and chairs for outdoor eating or for relaxing summer times.

Efforts to maintain environmentally clean space preclude use of strong perfumes and scented items or smoking. Suitable for 1 or 2 people. Rates change seasonally. Ask. 24 hr. between reservations.

The owner resides in the remainder of the building, which is surrounded by trees, giving the effect of a tree house and utmost privacy.

The Carriage House is also totally accessible to all Berkshire activities and especially those in Great Barrington with many top-notch restaurants, Mahaiwe Theatre performances, the Triplex movie house, Colonial Theatre, Shakespeare Theatre, Arlo Guthrie Music Center, performances at the gazebo, Yiddish Theatre, Norman Rockwell Museum, summer art and street fairs, as well as summer theatres, fall Harvest Festival, winter Norman Rockwell Christmas, skiing at Catamount (8 mi.) or Butternut (2 mi.) or Bosquet (24 mi.). Hiking trails and canoeing down the Housatonic. Visit historic homes and Berkshire Cottages - fall homes of the Newport Mansion society. Many shops, grocery and organic food stores and restaurants. Outdoor dining on the street with buskers on weekends. It's 4-5 minutes to center of town by car or a pleasant 15+ minute walk. Rejuvenate next door at Body and Soul for a selection of massages or facials. It is 10 minutes to Stockbridge; 18 minutes to Lenox to practice yoga at Kripalu or take a workshop. 25 minutes to Salisbury, Ct. Further south a bit to Lime Rock Park auto racing.

Masks required most places, and some require proof of vaccinations. Look up on individual websites, such as the Colonial Theatre, Mahaiwe, etc. and some restaurants as well.

Hi- I had a lengthy career in film production but moved from NY to the Berkshires, my original home, to recoup from an illness. That changed my life and I started a Bed and Breakfast here, which I later revised into a vacation apt. rental, ongoing for 20 years. I lead a meditation group, several weekly metaphysical teleconferences, as well as work with private clients and write. Have been part of 3 metaphysical/channeling journeys to Egypt and Israel, with another planned late March. My dog and cat companions live here too, but are separate from the apartment. I hope you will enjoy this lovely and peaceful and healing area of The Berkshires as much as I have.

During your stay

As I live in the remainder of the building, I'm easily available to help with
questions, planning, directions and so forth. Maps and current event flyers
are in the apartment per season. Calling on the phone is always an option too. You are welcomed here, but given as much privacy as you would
like.

Please Note: Winter visitors should have snow tires or 4 wheel drive for my driveway. Some winters have considerable snow while others very little. Drive is plowed, but snow tires strongly advised.
