This ideal location provides guests with the seclusion and access to nature, while maintaining connection to a rich cultural center with tons of events, restaurants and great shopping. Getting AroundThis rental is walking distance from the Peter Pan bus stop in Great Barrington. However we recommend guests use a car as much of the beautiful Berkshires require driving.
