If you're looking for quiet & lot's of character then you've found it. My upstairs flat is cozy & airy. PLEASE NOTE: The stairs to my flat are steep & narrow AND we'll share the bathroom! Come enjoy off street parking; a 5 minute walk to the grooviness of downtown GB; a sweet sit on my balcony overlooking the Housatonic River, or take a 25 minute drive to Berkshire culture. I know the area well & can give you many suggestions or leave you alone. My dog Lucy will welcome you then fall asleep!

Such a lovely peaceful place. I stayed at Tom's last year so was familiar with the place. The room is very comfortable and clean. I had the run of the house as Tom was away. Just a few minutes walk from the Main Street in Great Barrington. Conveniently located with a babbling…

Tom's place is very central and a great base for anyone visiting the Berkshires. The room is very clean and quiet with a comfortable bed. Tom left me out some eggs fresh from the farm as well as yoghurts and bread. There is a beautiful view of the river from the kitchen window. I…

Tom's place has an amazing art collection and view of the river. It feels like you get the authentic Tom, with no concessions for visitors' preferences. So, no coffee-maker. Room is also a little chilly, but hey I'm on-board helping out with our climate crisis! I'd stay there…

Response from Tom:
HI Sayak, so sorry about heat. It was turned up, what DIDN'T happen was having the heating vents open in your room. Of course I noticed that AFTER you were gone. It will be toasty next time : ). Best!

Tom's place is just as promised, and a pleasant walk to mainstream GB. His apt. is a myriad of eclectic thought provoking treats. Always a pleasure. My second visit.

I can be the full on host, concierge, grandmother with cookies and suggestions or the quiet, out of the way maitre'd. Just let me know which you prefer.
