Perfect place for a last minute trip to Great Barrington. Very hospitable hosts with lots of good hiking suggestions and good conversation over breakfast. Highly recommended!

A very nice private room with full bath just a 3 minute drive into the Great Barrington shopping district. Bill communicated promptly and it was very quiet. The breakfast was a nice gesture, too.

Bill made it very easy to adjust our arrival time. It was easy to find his home at the edge of town and Bill immediately made us feel welcomed. The room was nice, spacious and quiet and set away from the rest of the house to give it nice privacy.

We had a great stay with Bill and Deb. They made us feel welcomed and made sure we were comfortable in the room. We got great recommendations for a hike, and some good tips about Great Barrington. Thank you for a lovely breakfast and for accommodating our early leave. We hope to be back

We spent two most enjoyable nights here. Bill and Deb were wonderful hosts, the room was spotless, airy and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and perfectly tailored to my dietary requirements, which I really appreciated. The house itself is located on a very quiet street on the edge of town, with some beautiful views - it was hard to leave!

This was a cozy neighborhood right outside of town. Because it is rather steep, one might not want to walk there from town but a more ambitious walker could certainly do so, The bedroom was neat and clean with a bathroom conveniently located in the bedroom. I recommend that you discuss what you would like for breakfast so that you know what to expect. Bill, his wife Beth and their son were lovely and we would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful experience staying in Great Barrington at this lovely home! Location was quiet, as was the room itself. Comfortable bed, super book collection, great conversation, and delicious breakfast!
