The space

Ours is an older house that has been newly renovated. With rich-warm hardwood floors throughout, and bright freshly painted walls. The large kitchen and both bathrooms are newly updated with marble counter tops and a deep kitchen sink. All the bedrooms are bright and sunny, simply decorated and inviting. Also, the bedrooms are on the second floor which allows you to leave your windows open and let the fresh Berkshire mountain air flow through your room. Please remember that ours is an old house whose floors often creak and sounds carry from room to room. Also we have two other rooms available to rent which means there will LIKELY BE OTHER guests in our home. We love children but this is not a great space for children eight and under!

Guest access

Please feel free to use the kitchen, dining room, living room and laundry. There are plates, bowls, silverware etc. in the kitchen for you as well as a full laundry with detergent and static sheets. We rent out three rooms and Melody has an art studio in the attic, which can mean up to six people enjoying our house and the two full bathrooms.

Interaction with guests

We are usually around on the weekends and enjoy visiting with our guests. With busy schedules, Pete and I may or may not get to meet you but we are always available via text, email and phone!

Other things to note

We are just a few steps from the Housatonic River Walk and the Great Barrington Farmers Market. Less than five minutes walk from Main Street, Great Barrington where the small town of offers a charming and vibrant New England experience.

Arriving at this b&b was like arriving at home. We got a warm welcome starting with a personalized welcome sign, fresh flowers and yum cookies. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. Being able to use all of the house (kitchen, living room, laundry service, etc) made it a very comfortable stay. Melody in person is as warm and peaceful as her house is breathing. Really a perfect place to stay as you enjoy the Berkshires area. P.s. Baby Louie's - only a short walk - has the best salads and pizza's!
