Watch the sunrise in the morning and then gaze up at the many stars in the sky as you sit infront of the outdoor firepit, The Berkshires has a lot to offer for you would like to see more pics please ask we would be happy to send you more.....

The nasty and greedy owners

  • 1 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for a week in July. It was advertised for 6 people, however, there are only 4 chairs and a small dining table that cannot be extended. One bedroom didn’t have lights. The sleeping sofa in the loft was broken so one person in our party had to sleep on the floor. The kitchen appliances are outdated. The electric stove oven doesn’t work. The light above the stove is broken too. The owners advertise wireless internet which doesn’t exist. The house is contaminated with some kind of insects so there are piles of wooden dust dripping from the ceiling in the loft. We reported all these issues to the owners the first day we arrived but nothing was fixed before we left. And as a great finale, the owners refused to return our security deposit claiming that we violated some of their ‘rules’, though sec deposit supposedly required to protect owners from damages to the property which were none. We have filled a complaint with HomeAway and filed small court claim. Not recommended to anyone who doesn’t want to deal with these dishonest people.

Owner's Response: all we can say is these "guest" have stayed in this house for the past five years and were planning on next year's visit. NOT once did they write a review on vrbo, not even a small note in our log. what changed this year? NOT the house! what made them write such a dispecable, spiteful review.They were "Embarrassed because they were called out doing so many things wrong, we just could not over look . We won't belittle ourselves by listing them or debating this fabricated hateful so called review. Please read our other reviews, and don't let this fraudulent fable keep you from enjoying this peaceful lakeside retreat, in the Beautiful Berkshires, or as one "guest " called it "a gem in the rough "

Charming Place

  • 5 of 5

My son and I had a wonderful time - the place was so lovely we didn’t venture anywhere else, but just enjoyed relaxing by the lake. The house was clean and had all items we needed.
