Beautiful and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a family vacation. The home is in a fabulous location -- close to Tanglewood, Stockbridge, Lenox, and Gt. Barrington. The luxury kitchen was well equipped and the outdoor grill was a perfect size for coming out for 8! Everything in the house is wonderfully organized and labeled -- easy to find whatever you need. Would highly recommend this house.

What a great house! Kids learned to ski in one month too!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a month this winter so our children would have the opportunity to ski several consecutive weekends at Butternut which was about 12 minutes away. The experience was seamless and the house was fantastic. We live in NYC and found the drive to be very manageable. The owner was extremely organized, helpful and responsive. The kitchen is extremely well stocked for a rental house. This is something that I really appreciated. We have rented many homes though VRBO and are often unhappy with the kitchen equipment.

The kitchen table was great for

Large family meals. All the bedrooms were comfortable and nicely laid out. The kids loved the oversized jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom. They would soak and then enjoy a movie in bed in front of the fireplace after a long day on the slopes.

I would absolutely recommend this house to any family looking for a retreat in the Berkshires! The area was very sweet and had many great restaurants, hiking and sight seeing! We had many meals in Great Barrington at the Brew Pub which we highly recommend!

Enjoy! You won't be disappointed.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this home was wonderful. The beautiful art which surrounded the house made it so inviting. It was so cozy with wonderful bedding and such comfort. The view was so peaceful and relaxing. What I especially loved was how spotless this home was and organized. Everything you could possibly need was at your fingertips and the home itself was gorgeous. I highly encourage anyone who wants to get away to a peaceful country home to rent this home.

Comfort and Beauty

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house last summer for the month of July and loved every minute of it. The home is warm and comfortable, with flat screen TV's in the family room and master bedroom. The furnishings are well-made, with neutral colors. The walls are filled with the landscapes and still lifes painted by his wife, and they are all spectacular. The beds are firm and the linens very lovely. While the house is surrounded by trees and set back off the street, on a sunny day one can sit on the deck for several hours and enjoy the sunlight. There's also a decent screened in porch.

As for the location, you can't get a much better one in the Berkshires. Five minutes to Lenox, Stockbridge and W. Stockbridge, maybe 15-20 to Great Barrington and an hour to Williamstown. The Stockbridge Bowl is a 3 minute drive.

Henry was very responsive in his communication and in making sure we were well taken care of. The kitchen contains top of the line appliances, and Henry has provided condiments and spices, along with a water dispenser.

The only thing I missed was having a disposal, which I'm used to at home. And a pool would have been the icing on the cake.

You will not be disappointed with your choice of this truly lovely home in the heart of the Berks.

Magnificent Home

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home to enjoy all that the Berkshires offers !

The home is decorated beautifully, all custom cabinetry, top quality throughout - kitchen, baths, BR's, Living area. It is warm and comfortable to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery, cultural events and athletic opportunities all throughout the Berkshire Mountain area. From Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow, Shakespeare Theatre, Berkshire Theatre, Hiking, Biking, Tennis, Swimming at the nearby Stockbridge Bowl...you have it all at your doorstep.

The owner is extremely accommodating and demonstrates his desire to insure a pleasant experience and use of his home. Everything from condiments, paper goods, water cooler, propane tanks is supplied.

This is our second time in the home and we plan to make this an annual get away destination where we can enjoy the solitude and welcome our family and friends.
