Spacious and private

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in the Berkshires, located in a private secluded area with breathtaking views. The house is clearly very loved by its owners and is very comfortable and cozy. We stayed there for 5 nights with a large group of friends and it never felt crowded. The kitchen is well equipped, the deck is very large and with views of the mountains. There is a game room in the lower level, with a ping pong table and other games. There is an upright piano which is in great condition and has a nice sound! There are several "living rooms" with multiple seating areas and TVs. The owner is very responsive and replied to emails promptly and was very accommodating. The location is hard to beat - secluded and surrounded by farms with grazing sheep and llamas, it is just a short drive from Great Barrington and other Berkshires attractions, near several ski resorts. We highly recommend this house!

Relaxing in the Berkshire Hills

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weekend in the Berkshires, staying at the Hillsdale VRBO. The house is big and clean, with lots of room for our family to spread out. We traveled with 3 generations and everyone enjoyed themselves. Truth be told, the screened porch was the highlight of the house. There was always a cool breeze and great views of the mountains and trees. We ate, relaxed, played ping pong, went to Tanglewood and other Berkshire events. Paul was very accessible by phone and text with any questions that arose over the weekend. They have taken care to set up dehumidifiers in the basement level as it is needed--a reality of summer in the woods.

Lovely home in beautiful woods with great views

We were five adult women (all cousins) who stayed here for 3 days. We loved it. The owner (Peter) was extremely attentive and responsive. We would readily return again.

Great home in a secluded location with fantastic mountain views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the long Presidents weekend for skiing. The home is huge with multiple living areas with fantastic sunrise views. We loved the living room off the kitchen with the fireplace and the kids spent most of the time we weren't skiing in the game room basement. The kitchen is a tad small for the size of the house, yet functional. Overall we had a great weekend and would rent here again.

Beautiful piece of property with incredible views of the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is huge and very comfortable. It had plenty of room for our family reunion. The kids loved the playroom. Everything was clean and in good shape. At the end of the weekend, everyone voted to come back again next year !

Exactly as decribed. Clean, spacious, and beautiful house!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so perfect. It's very big with lots of rooms and the location is great!! We were able to give everyone their own room -- some spent a day skiing some went to Hudson for the day. Great NYE trip.
