About Shannon Mulholland

We are a young family based in Brooklyn. This is our second home where we stretch our arms and enjoy the outdoors all year around.

Shannon Mulholland purchased this house in 2017

What makes this house unique

If you are visiting April-Oct, chickens reside on the property. This is part of our organic tick remediation. The normal grounds keepers are caring for the chickens, so the renters need not do anything. They can however, help themselves to farm fresh eggs. The grounds keepers are putting the eggs in the fridge. The renters can eat as many as are produced! They just need (!!!) to be sure to wash them before cooking, as these are farm fresh and not "processed" as would be if they were sold in a store.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to thank you for renting your beautiful house this summer. My colleagues and I have had the good fortune to stay here for the past 5 or 6 summers, and we love it.

We love this house!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve been renting homes in The Berkshires for “family weekends,” bringing together our siblings to be with our father, now 92 and living in West Stockbridge. By my count, we’ve been in six different homes over the past six years. None has matched this home for quality of every kind: a very workable kitchen, bright suites and bedrooms, formal and informal dining areas, and a great living room where we gather around a blazing wood fire.

During warm weather, we’re drawn to the chickens who roost in their own home on the property. During winter weather, which he had in abundance last weekend, the house offers everything from snow shoes to cross-country skis to sleds for the children.

The house itself is nestled in a wooded area full of song birds and wildlife, and has an expansive front yard — think “meadow” — for wonderful viewing. There’s a splendid front porch on which we settled in for long conversations during summer and autumn weekends.

And best of all, is Shannon: She has the house spotless and ready when we arrive, and she stands ready to assist with any questions or concern all weekend long. We’ve never had a more caring, simple, gracious host to make our weekends complete.

Recommendation? Get this home (unless you’re competing with us for one of our weekends)!

amazing family reunion location

  • 5 of 5

everything on VBRO is accurate-this was the idea location and the home's warmth and physical space was more than expected-my entire family and grandchildren loved the home and it was super young child friendly. Any issue or question we had an immediate response from Shannon on email. Thank you for assuring a family meet up could work so comfortably and be enjoyed.

Rest, relax and recharge in this magnificent home

  • 5 of 5

This home and property recharged my family and I from the moment we drove down the long driveway till the moment we drove back out. My children were outside most of the weekend, cruising down the zip line, catching crayfish in the pond and swinging on the swing. I loved admiring the colonial molding and windows in the home while resting in a comfy bed! When it was time to get outside for a jog, I took the road straight out from the house and enjoyed the most stunning landscape with rolling hills and all the best of rural scenery. During meal times, we had plenty of space to cook, serve the children and all sit down later for a nice adult dinner at the large living room table. The home is close proximity to wonderful shops, lakes and cafes. You will not be disappointed with your visit to the this clean and well decorated home. Enjoy the porch!!

Great place to relax and explore !

  • 5 of 5

When you make the drive up to the house set back on the expansive grounds, you know you are in for a relaxing New England time. We spent times exploring around the grounds, playing games with the kids, barbecuing, and catching up with family and friends. And, located centrally to quaint towns, we explored, ate at one of a kind restaurants, visited museums, and took in the history and scenery that is unique to the area.

The house was clean, well equipped, and spacious - even with a large group in residence! We'll be back soon for the fall foliage, and perhaps some winter scenery and sports if our schedule allows!

Perfect for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a special house -- welcoming, warm, clean, comfortable and filled with light. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen cozy, and the living and dining rooms perfect for a weekend of bonding and togetherness. The kids loved the sprawling yard and toys in the house, and the old folks had a great time in rocking chairs on the front porch. We hope to return !

Amazing property. Truly a classic Berkshires beauty. Tons of space outside and inside. Fully stocked with everything we needed and lots of comfortable beds and furniture. Property was clean and owners were lovely and very responsive. This was a perfect weekend getaway and I highly recommend this home to anyone in any season!
