Nice lake house
Stayed here for a winter holiday weekend and the house is nice. The kids took over the downstairs level allowing the parents to have some peace and quiet upstairs.
We’re so pleased your stay was enjoyable. The lower level environment also works with our grandchildren.
my husband I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lake is spectacular and the house is cozy.
The most important issue for us was that the lake be a “swimmer’s lake,” free of motor traffic and weeds. We were not disappointed; we loved it! The water could not have been more perfect and the setting is absolutely beautiful. The ladder on the dock was very slippery from algae and we tried to scrub it down; a little scary when climbing out of the water. The house is very comfortable and well stocked. We were not clear whether at times there was air conditioning and at other times not since sometimes the house seemed cooler and dryer than the outside air. Only one complaint— somebody doing target practice every afternoon for about an hour somewhere in the neighborhood!
Thanks for the feedback. Previous guests didn’t mention the algae on the dock steps. Although there is a brush for this in the shed with the oars and things, now that you mentioned this, I’ll secure the brush alongside the latter on the dock. Thanks for taking the time to let us know.
Great summer vacation. About a minister walk to a beautiful lake.
Great location for hiking and swimming. There is also one kayak and one boat in the property, BBQ grill and a camp fire. Several downsides: the house was not cleaned prior to our arrival (cleaning person forgot to come, and an explanation sheet was missing so we had trouble with the wifi. This was a problem especially since we had no cellular reception in the area. The other thing is that the house only has one AC window unit in the living room. This was good enough most of the time.
However, we would still consider coming back. Beautiful house and well equipped.
Unknown to me; the internet provider upgraded our service whereby a wireless router was no longer required. Therefore, the modem had a different password. The cleaning person was sent as soon as I was advised of the condition on arrival but, she was told not to clean. The info sheet, in more than one location in the house, was not adhered to. Notwithstanding that I also spoke to the renter on Friday morning; at which time the trash and recycling was to be at the road, it was not! This would have been an inconvenience for the next renter so, an additional refuse pick up was necessary at an additional charge. I sent photo examples of the disarray of the kitchen to the renter. We’ve been renting for 20 years and this was among our most disappointing experiences.
Excellent house with great pond for boating and swimming
We just loved this house. It was perfect for my son who is 8 and loved swimming around the lake and especially jumping off the platform. It was also large enough to accommodate friends and family, and well-equipped for grilling and cooking. Very quiet and peaceful with easily accessible boats that are fun to use, and lots of nearby towns to explore. Well worth it!
Excellent summer stay on a beautiful pond
Our family of 8 adults and 2 children found the house to be comfortable and well equipped. The strongest positive is that it is situated on Round Pond in Great Barrington. Excellent swimming and canoeing. Our 3 year old niece took her first canoe ride. Quite a thrill for her and her parents.
Great summer rental
We were two couples and one child, and this house was perfect for us. It was really clean, and had everything we needed. The kitchen is very well-stocked if you want to cook, and we did use the grill on the porch as well. It was quite hot while we were there so we did go in the pond a few times, and took the boat out once. The air conditioning and ceiling fans were welcome. The house is not far from town, with shops and restaurants, but we didn’t find much need to leave our little summer oasis. I would stay at this house again in a second.
