Always a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this house and my family just loves it. It's just the right size for the 4 of us, and the view of the sunset in the living room while sitting by the fire is just what we need to unwind. Also, very close to skiing and other Berkshire activities.

Kathy is an excellent host and the house is always stocked with essentials like coffee, milk, and eggs to make our stay easy.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed between Christmas and New Years and absolutely love the house. The light coming into the living room in the afternoon is gorgeous and you sit by the fire.

It’s a cozy place with original mid-century detail. And Kathy was a great host who had the fridge stocked with a few essentials that made it easy for us in the mornings. Would stay again in a hearbeat.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

First I will say the house is very nice. In many ways it is nicer than the pictures show and the owners may want to have a pro photographer shoot it sometime.

The house is well stocked, very clean and nicely set up. The house does show it's age in spots, but that is part of the charm.

During our stay the weather was extremely cold. We did have issues getting the 3 bedrooms all to comfortable temperatures. The house has one heating zone. When we made the master bedroom comfortable, the other two were very hot. Make the 2 bedrooms comfortable and the rest of the house, especially the master, was on the cold side. In our case a space heater in the master would have been welcome and solved the issue.

I certainly recommend this house for others and will consider staying again.

Cathy was fantastic! She made sure through email or phone calls that things were going well. Great piece of property so close to mass and Ny. A great spot to have a vacation. There’s a lot to do if you are an outdoors person !!

Comfy Cottage in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

Kathy is a great host and keeps this sweet little house very clean and comfortable. The exterior appears to be somewhat modern as opposed to inside which takes you back in time. It reminds of a writer's cottage where one comes to escape a hectic city life. It is very relaxing (no television) and the location is convenient to the many boarding schools in the area. There were breakfast items in the fridge and coffee was provided as well. Definitely a good value.

Sweet little house.

  • 4 of 5

This is a very comfortable little house between Canaan and Salisbury. Very private ,clean and welcoming. All the beds are very nice. I loved that Kathy had eggs ,muffins ,butter, coffee and creamer and more in the fridge waiting for us. We had Wifi, no TV, but when my grandkids came to visit there were board games to play and places to go. We ended up staying a couple days extra. Very happy here.
