Warm and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults had a wonderful time at this lovely home. The weather was bitter cold, and our plans for hiking every day were put on hold. Despite the change in plans, we loved being together at the house - the fireplace was great (and going constantly), lots of ping pong tournaments, games, and reading. The kitchen was fabulous for preparing lots of big meals. Just a great home to spend time with people you love. Anuj was very responsive and we had everything we needed and more. If you're interested in yoga, lots of yoga nearby - we practiced every day at Radiance or Super Soul. Don't miss the Flavours Restaurant in Pittsfield! Thank you to Anuj and Heather for providing the perfect setting for our family to get together.

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!
