The Library is one half of the second floor of a large house located on a hill on the east side of the village of Housatonic, part of Great Barrington. The Library is private, spacious, and very comfortable. There are two bedrooms, plus the common room, and the space comfortably holds four people. Set up for independent guests, the Library provides amenities you'll need for breakfast or snacks, including a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker, but NOT a full kitchen.

David’s place is great! The Library is very cool, private, and comfortable. Excellent location for a fall foliage weekend in the Berkshires; we would definitely stay here again!

We had a wonderful time in the Library. It is an eclectic area with two comfortable bedrooms. It is well located for a trip to Tanglewood and its environs. It can be a bit cold at times. We are very happy with our decision to stay here.

Response from David:
The place is actually rather cozy, being well insulated and with zoned heating. The two nights in question were unseasonably chilly for August, and Jason probably should have taken the three different window fans out and shut the windows. Itry not to intrude in the guest space without being asked to, so I hadn't done this myself. These fans--one for each room--are provided for comfort during warm spells and for guests who like lots of fresh air during warmer days. Nonetheless, they are of the kind that are light and easily put in and removed.

I lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts for 25 years before moving to the Berkshires in 2005. Out here is the "Shire," I undertook a deep renovation of a Greek Revival Duplex, built my art studio, and landscaped the heck out of the hillside property. This is a wonderful place to …
