That's a James Taylor song "The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time." Good to remember!

This is a simple house, about a mile from the center of town, on a dead-end street with a big back yard on the river. It's about 12 miles to Tanglewood, 8 miles to the Norman Rockwell Museum, a mile to the Mahaiwe Theatre the Triplex Theatre, and town where restaurants abound! 4 miles to ski Butternut.

And I've just added an Apple TV.

The space

There are 3 bedrooms, and 1 bathroom all upstairs. Queen size beds in two rooms, and a single bed – if you need it – in another room.

Guest access

You'll have the whole House.

Interaction with guests

I'll probably be working or checking out another Airbnb in some interesting place – if I'm lucky.

Other things to note

2 night weekend minimum in June, July, and August, plus holiday weekends.

Ginger’s home is cozy and wonderful. We enjoyed the back yard and watching a movie on the Apple TV. It feels nice to be in the space. Highly recommended.

This house is a nice quiet place to stay when visiting the Berkshires. It is within walking distance, or a short drive, to downtown Great Barrington. The house is clean, the kitchen is complete, and there is comfortable seating in the living room. The latter has a TV connected to the internet and we watched two (free) Netflix movies in the evenings. We enjoyed our visit.

Ginger's home is beautiful and in the ideal location as you can easily walk to town but it feels secluded. Ginger is a very thoughtful and attentive host who wants to make sure your stay is wonderful. Highly recommended!

We came to Great Barrington to visit a friend who had just had a baby. There were two of us who stayed at Ginger's place and found it comfortable, clean and convienient. Check in was easy. Ginger was there to meet us at the house and explained how things work. The area is lovely and lots of great hikes. Body and Soul is fabulous if you need a massage.

This was exactly as advertised, but with some unexpected extras. Ginger was a great host, and greeted us with a bunch of local information including real estate listings (we had said we were looking at the area as a possible retirement location), and a bottle of wine in the fridge for us. We didn't have time to cook, but she left us lots of staples to use if we did, and offered access to her extensive spice rack. The house is older but well maintained, clean, and had everything we needed. it's close enough to town to walk to restaurants and shopping if you want, but far enough (maybe 15 minutes) that you might prefer to drive especially in bad weather.

Ginger User ProfileGinger is a superhost.

I'd like to travel more, to visit my friend's all over the country, and the ones I've met from different parts of the world, including some of the great people I've met through Airbnb. I'm learning new languages, writing short stories, and building websites. I have a passion for rivers.
Some of my favourite quotes:
"Just a different version of you." Norman Lear
"The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time." James Taylor (Actually that's a great song!)
