(Discount for multiple/seasonal bookings.) Apartment in spacious Victorian painted lady in a tranquil small-town neighborhood, blocks from Great Barrington's Main Street, with a lake (skating!) and quiet country lanes only a few minutes in the other direction: 3 bedrooms (sleeping up to 6), family dining room, and sitting room with fireplace. Picnic table on lawn outside apartment.

The space
The apartment is one part of a large Victorian house that is divided vertically, with different staircases on each side. The rental side is completely separate with its own entrance.

Great Barrington is a small New England town (population 7, 000) and the center of the southern Berkshires, as well as the market town for the tri-state area which includes northwestern Connecticut and Columbia County, New York. It is the location of "Alice's Restaurant," where folk singer Arlo Guthrie, the son of Woody Guthrie, turned his Thanksgiving Day arrest for littering into one of the best-known songs and movies of the Vietnam War era.

This tranquil spot, surrounded by tall maple, pine and ash trees, is a cool green retreat from the crowds at Tanglewood. Because the house in on the Hill, breezes keep it cool even during hot summer weather.

Where you’ll be

Great Barrington, Massachusetts, United States

The Berkshires have long been known for their rural beauty and for a wide range of cultural activities. The Tanglewood Music Festival in Lenox (about 15 minutes to the north) is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and people come by the thousands from all over the world to be in the Berkshires for Tanglewood. African American intellectual W. E. B. Du Bois sledded down our street when he was a boy in the 1870s, soon after the house was built (in 1868, the year Du Bois was born). The area is very popular in autumn, and there is downhill skiing at Butternut and Catamount in the winter, as well as plenty of cross-country skiing and even ice skating at the lake in our neighborhood.
