Couldn't have been better!
Absolutely lovely home in the Berkshires. The open concept kitchen/living room was such a fun hang out spot for us 8 friends getting together for a college reunion! The house was sparkling clean, there was plenty of sleeping areas and extra bedding and a great kitchen to cook in, stocked with all the tools you might need! Becky went above and beyond being a great hostess by always promptly responding to my many emails with questions and calling to check that we were all settled in and had everything we needed. We used the lake pass and had a lovely morning spent swimming and relaxing on the sweet gem of a lake! Ooms conversation area is a close by and easy walk through beautiful fields around a pond. I would highly recommend this house to everyone and do hope to go back again sometime!
We stayed for 2 weeks and had a wonderful stay. Two adults and 3 kids, the house was beautiful and more than enough room. The grounds were beautiful too. We had a fire in the pit one night. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. Becky is very attentive and answered all our questions. Than you for an excellent stay!
Nice home in the Taconic's
Great house in the woods with everything you could want for a relaxing stay and easy access to New York/Massachusetts area.
Clean, quiet and enjoyable
All went very well with our stay in Chatham. We were met by the owners who were very easy to interact with and welcoming with their home. Please note this is actually their house - so needs to be attended to as it were your own. Large outside space and two car garage which are helpful when you have a few people staying on the property. Very close to where we needed to be for our weekend activities so that was a plus!
Great place,clean,nicely equipped with everything that you might possibly need.
We had a great time.
Home away from home
The house is in a beautiful and convenient location: it was so nice to be able to leave right from the house for a little walk in the snow, up the hill and across the woods. Breakfast in the kitchen looking out at the winter visitors to the bird feeders was a treat! It was also a quick drive to Stockbridge, to Edith Wharton's home and to the Norman Rockwell Museum that we all really liked!
