Terrific house for our family get together

  • 4 of 5

Bright, airy, spacious and well-equipped house nicely accommodated our 7-adult family gathering. We enjoyed the deck and a barbecue on Friday and a short ride to a Tanglewood performance on Saturday.

Comfortable and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay in Canaan at this property. It was so spacious, comfortable, well laid out, and lovely to spend time in. We had wonderful evenings on the porch, and the kids were occupied playing ping pong, reading in the comfortable chairs and nooks, playing games on the lawn and eating blueberries off the bushes. We loved spending time at the lake nearby which was wonderful for kids and had a very friendly staff. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in and the beds were very comfortable. We would love to return. Thank you Anuj and Heather!

Spacious, comfortable, extremely well-equipped home in a convenient and tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a superb weekend here with family members coming from various locations. The house is very comfortable with lots of light and beautiful views from the living room and deck. The kitchen is excellent, with a large refrigerator, stove and ovens. The living areas are great, with comfy seating, plus really great lighting for reading at night. The bedrooms and bathrooms were fitted out with quality sheets/towels/soaps. The house had very positive energy, and encouraged easy conversation. Our 2 1/2 year old felt right at home with all the toys and child furniture. The location is fantastic - not far from the Taconic and very close to attractions in the Berkshires. The only difficulty was spotting the driveway. We put up a flag at the end of the driveway to make it easy for our family members to find it, which worked great.

We highly recommend the house.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

Clean, nicely decorated, well-equipped house in a pretty location. Easy drive to Tanglewood. Owner was extremely responsive and a pleasure to deal with.

Exterior of the house and deck need a little TLC. Current beds configuration can only really handle 6 adults, 2 small kids and 1 toddler unless you opt for the air mattress in the basement bedroom for an extra charge. Overall a very pleasant stay.
