Downtown Great Barrington. 5 minute walk to downtown in an "up and coming/eclectic" neighborhood. Two other rooms available to rent which means there WILL BE OTHER guests in our home. Two full shared bathrooms, living room, laundry and kitchen, all available to guests. Our vintage house has floors that creak and sound carries. Pete and I may or may not be there to greet you. Room measures 10.5 feet by 11 feet or 115.5 square feet.

The space

Ours is an older house that has been newly renovated. With rich-warm hardwood floors throughout, and bright freshly painted walls. The large kitchen and both bathrooms are newly updated with marble counter tops and a deep kitchen sink. All the bedrooms are bright and sunny, simply decorated and inviting. Also, the bedrooms are on the second floor which allows you to leave your windows open and let the fresh Berkshire mountain air flow through your room.

Guest access

Please feel free to use the kitchen, dining room, living room and laundry. There are plates, bowls, silverware etc. in the kitchen for you as well as a full laundry with detergent and static sheets. We rent out three rooms and Melody has an art studio in the upstairs attic, which can mean up to six people enjoying our house and the two full bathrooms.

Interaction with guests

We are usually around on the weekends and enjoy visiting with our guests. With busy schedules, Pete and I may or may not get to meet you but we are always available via text, email and phone!

Other things to note

We are just a few steps from the Housatonic River Walk and the Great Barrington Farmers Market. Less than five minutes walk from Main Street, Great Barrington where the small town of offers a charming and vibrant New England experience.

Melody and Peter's space was my first Airbnb ever, and I'm so glad I chose them as my hosts. Unfortunately I never got to meet them in person, but Melody was an excellent communicator providing clear check-in instructions and multiple suggestions for dinner. As other comments mention, I was greeted with a plate of cookies and a nice bottle of red :). The whole house is clean and tastefully decorated with artwork made by the owner, as well as small bouquets of flowers and many plants. The porch has a cute sketchbook for guests to add to. There are hardwood floors so you will hear other guests walking around, up and down the stairs (I felt a little guilty making noise at night but what can you do?). Bathrooms are well stocked with all the necessities and more. My bed was comfortable enough with a very soft mattress. The neighborhood is less than a block from a public library and the Housatonic River with a very short public walkway. Just 2 blocks from cute, unique shops, cafes and restaurants! The street is very quiet at night and not well lit, but I felt completely safe walking back from dinner. I was woken up in the morning by a passing train just before my alarm went off. Melody provides a silk eye mask and earplugs for those who wish to sleep in. Overall, I would definitely recommend Melody and Peter's place to anybody looking for an affordable, convenient room in the Berkshires. I will think of them the next time I'm in the area!

Response from Melody And Peter:
Emily thanks so much for your thoughtful and thorough review! We really enjoyed being your first AirBnB experience and I do hope you come stay with us again soon. Your suggestion for a mirror in your room is spot on and I'm now on the lookout for a perfect little vintage mirror for room "A". :) Safe travels!

A super charming and comfy place! Melody even thought to pre-chill the room for us on an unexpectedly hot day, which was MUCH appreciated. Great communication and easy check in/out.

Thanks so much Katherine! I'm so glad you both enjoyed your stay AND that you enjoyed the body wash, shampoo and conditioner that we provide. It's a high quality, organic and scent free brand. ;) We hope to see you again soon.
