Big-city culture and ideas with a small-town, friendly vibe—that’s the essence of Great Barrington. Named one of the 20 Best Small Towns in America by Smithsonian Magazine and one of the top 25 Dream Towns in Massachusetts by Boston.com, Great Barrington, located in the southern Berkshires, boasts a vibrant downtown full of retail shops, cafés, restaurants, galleries, and more. Evenings come alive with many venues offering live music, casual and formal dining, and a variety of special events. Catch a film at the Triplex Cinema, or take in a dance, theater, comedy, or music performance at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center —then kick back with a glass of wine or beer at one of the many outstanding restaurants.
On the outskirts of town you’ll find markets and home and garden stores, the local farmers’ market, and the small, privately owned Great Barrington Airport. If you love the outdoors, try canoeing or kayaking on Lake Buel, skiing and snowboarding at Ski Butternut, or hiking the many trails at Monument Mountain, where literary giants Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorn, and Oliver Wendell Holmes frequently met to indulge in a bit of creative conversation.
Great Barrington is a terrific choice in Berkshire County real estate for those who want to live in a small, safe, community-minded town, but still want to be part of the action. Let us help you find the perfect home for sale or rent today.
