Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom

Welcome to our Schoolhouse Cottage located in the heart of the Berkshires. Set in front of the ledges of Warner Mountain, this historic home was originally a three room schoolhouse until the late 1920's and the development of the regional school system. It then passed through two owners and was finally purchased in 1953 by a family who lived there for many years. Now updated, the cottage has become a peaceful 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage with all the comforts of home.

Located on the side of Butternut Ski Resort, this property is under half a mile to the resort entrance, making it extremely convenient for skiers. Jiminy Peak and Catamount Mountain are also a short drive for skiers. Tired of hitting the slopes? A five minute drive will bring you to the restaurants, theaters and shops of Great Barrington. Venture down route 7 to explore the hidden treasures in antique shops. Or call it a night and relax in your own private rental with a fully equipped kitchen and smart tv. Kids have plenty of room to play in the large front and side yards.

This cottage comfortably sleeps 3-4. Bedroom one has a queen size bed. Bedroom two has a twin bed that pulls out into two side by side mattresses, similar to a trundle and comfortable for two. Note that these may not be separated due to the design. The living room has a couch that pulls out into a double bed also comfortable for two. Towels and linens are provided. Please note, for any guests traveling with pets, the yard is not entirely fenced. We advise that you keep your pet leashed at all times.

A maximum of 5 guests are allowed, with a cleaning fee based on the number of guests.

1-2 guests...... $50

3-5 guests ..... $75

Check in is at 3:30 pm and check out is at 11:00am.

Great house and super close to Butternut

  • 5 of 5

My family of five stayed in this great cottage after Christmas for a few days of skiing and it was perfect. We were less than five minutes to Butternut and only 10 minutes to town. Owner was easy to contact for questions and quick to respond when needed. House is very comfortable and we had plenty of clean linens and space for everyone. The second bedroom easily fit our three girls with two in one bed and the third in the twin pull out chair. Good value compared to staying in a hotel but for longer stays that require laundry or dishwasher it may not be ideal. Would recommend and stay again for sure.

Very nice stay at the cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay at the cottage. Everything was as advertised and I especially appreciated the cleanliness. Also appreciated the ability to have a 1 night rental. The only problem we had was getting the television to work. Even my young, tech savvy son couldn't do it but we didn't care so 5 stars on our stay.

clean, bright and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Shana was very accommodating, responsive and easy to communicate with and the cottage is more spacious than it appears in the photos. The wifi worked well and there are lots of television channels.The place was immaculate, the beds were comfortable, and we really felt at home! We loved the shower and the huge, fluffy towels. The only improvement I can suggest is lowering the bar in the open closet in the master bedroom as the hangers are out of reach for short people. It was great to be right on a main road for easy access but a family with pets or toddlers who may bolt need to use caution; even though there was not much traffic going by the cars do travel at high speeds. It was the perfect place for our family of 3 and dog. We appreciated being able to book for one night. Highly recommend!

Cute and quaint cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to a beautiful home and there was a welcome basket of snacks and goodies along with a personal thank you card from the owner. The rooms were pristine and cozy. Couldn't ask for a more peaceful and comfortable place. Will definitely use again!
