A summer retreat in the Berkshires, great for gatherings of family and friends. Swim in our private pond, have lunch out on the deck, gather by the fireplace or sit in the screened-in gazebo to watch the moon rise while the frogs and crickets hum.

Der Wohnraum

This is a classic New England Barn converted to a comfortable modern home. The 24-ft. ceiling features original hand-cut beams. Screened sliding doors lead from the living area to the wraparound deck and views across the valley.

My folks converted the barn into a house when the original farmhouse on the property was burned down. Turning a setback into an advantage (a favorite maxim of my dad's), they made it a welcoming place to relax: open, with views overlooking the Berkshire hills; homey and comfortable, but with everything you need for a relaxing stay (my Mom was not going to make her morning coffee in the fireplace); spacious, with extra beds for friends and an emphasis on room to gather with loved ones. We've had a giant family reunion at the house every fall for thirty-plus years.

The open galley kitchen is equipped with electric range/oven; microwave; pots & pans for cooking and baking; tableware and cutlery for 12 (we make vats of applesauce every year with no problem). The kitchen table seats 4-6; the dining table seats 10.

You’ll find a mix of queen, double and twin beds in our five bedrooms. The second floor has its own couch and chairs on a balcony overlooking the main room. Next to the third-floor bedroom (accessed vial semi-spiral stair)is a rooftop cupola with 360º views, plus a convertible sofa for extra guests. There are also steps leading to the house; those with mobility issues should keep this in mind.

There are 2-1/2 baths and a washer/dryer in the basement.

The air conditioners, large ceiling fan and room fans are seldom used, since we catch a nice breeze coming up from the meadow. For the odd mid-summer cool evening, a cheery fire is perfect in either our stone fireplace or our wood burning stove.

You can hike the woods of our 120-acre property; head up the mountain or down to the trout stream. There's also the private pond at the bottom of the meadow, visible from the house. It's about 100 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 9-12 feet deep in the middle: perfect for a swim, paddling in the rowboat or just sitting on the dock, listening to the birds, bullfrogs and crickets.

30 minutes from Tanglewood and Great Barrington. Only 10 minutes from the Hancock Shaker Village and Jiminy Peak, which has a variety of mountain activities in summer. For beach swimming, boating and lake fishing, Cherry Plain State Park is very close by, with Queechy Lake in Canaan and Lake Pontoosuc in Lanesborough/Pittsfield each just a little farther away.

We love our house and hope that you will, too. We expect that you'll make yourselves comfortable, and that you'll leave the house as you found it-- this means replacing any furnishings that have been moved, and using common sense when it comes to appliance use, the septic system and safety precautions.
One dog by prior arrangement is ok; no cats (sorry, owner is allergic).
With a wooden barn in a wooded area, fire is an extreme risk, so utmost caution is required: no smoking anywhere indoors, and absolutely no outdoor bonfires. Grilling is to be done on the grass, not the deck; coals go only in the designated ash can.
As there is no municipal trash collection, guests will need to make a visit to the town dump or, if that's closed, take all trash with them on departure.

Elissa's family's barn is the perfect place for a large group of people to have a home away from home for a weekend or a week! From all the beautiful natural wood beams, to the wood stove, to the sweeping vistas from the deck, to the perfectly little reading nook in the cupola of the barn; the barn was everything we could have asked for and more! My family and I were so happy with our stay that I have a feeling we'll be staying there again and making a tradition of visiting the barn.

we had a family wedding in pittsfield, ma - and were looking for a way to avoid hotels. all five couples agreed that we made the right decision, despite a little bit of a drive into town. the space was charming with unbelievable mountain views. much cleaner than we expected for a "barn." the communal living space was wonderful for relaxation and the beds and bathrooms were just what we needed. we didn't use the kitchen, but plenty of appliances / dishes etc. i'm not sure we'll be making it back to the area, but if we were to, it would be a no-brainer to use this space!

Wonderful space with a small lake/pond nearby which is very swimmable! The rooms are comfortable, and the common space is spacious, comfortable and very cozy. Many Berkshires attractions are 30-45 mins drive away which while you can enjoy beautiful views in a rather secluded place. Had a great experience communicating with the host and staying at the house. Thank you!

We enjoyed Elissa's house so much last year that we chose to return this year for our annual family gathering of children and grandchildren. As last year, we found the house to be a particularly comfortable and conducive space for a family visit. The large common area, open kitchen, and high ceilings were great for game-playing and communal eating. At the same time, everyone had a private restive bedroom space where they could turn in early if they wished, while others continued to converse and catch up till the wee hours of the morning. We loved preparing meals in the well-lighted, fully-equipped kitchen - and we also appreciated having the grill on hand for barbecuing. The wrap-around deck was great for conversation, reading and reflecting in the outdoors. Some of us enjoyed fishing in the pond; all of us enjoyed the warmth of the great room's fireplace in the evening. And the view out towards the mountains - it is simply spectacular, so magnificent that it leaves a mark in your heart and mind. There is also plenty to do within a short drive: walks in conservation areas, horseback riding, lake swimming, mini golf, exploring of local history. However, we mostly took advantage of the opportunity to just be together and enjoy each other's company in a beautiful and comfortable space!

This is such a beautiful place to stay, with plenty of room for our family. The house was lovely, and we enjoyed relaxing in the living room and wandering down to the pond. It feels a world away from everything, but all the amenities of the Berkshires are right nearby. Elissa was extremely helpful; on our first night, the past wet went out, and she let us know where the grill was for cooking, and how to track when the power would be back. I highly recommend Elissa's barn for a relaxing getaway.

This is cool, offbeat hippie barn, with lots of steep steps and levels. It's a fantastic place for a family reunion. Lots of room to hang out as a family. We cook a lot--note there is no blender and only a pretty useless lettuce spinner. There are fans, but we didn't discover them until we were pretty roasted for a couple days. We loved the vibe and gorgeous views. Elissa is a pleasure to work with.

I'm a native New Yorker. I teach, ride my bike everywhere and work a shift at my local food co-op every week. When it comes to the Barn listed here, I'm the official host, but the house is really a family place.

My parents wanted us kids to get out to the country sometimes. As a kid, I built fairy houses in the woods, swam in the pond, sped down the meadow on a toboggan with my siblings in winter, and was begrudgingly dragged upstate as a teenager ('there's nothing to DO' was my complaint at the time; now, of course, it's the whole reason I love to go).

Note: I myself am sadly monolingual, but others in the family speak fluent French, Arabic and passable Spanish.
