The Cottage is a part of the property. We have here lived in Western Massachusetts on and off for 25 years beginning in 1975. We have no plans to be anywhere else.

Perfect country cottage
The house was perfect!! Everything you would expect of a little country cottage. Homeowners were on property but gave us privacy. The setting was beautiful. I can’t wait to come back and be able to spend a little more time there to relax.
Peaceful location, amazing cabin in the woods - Tranquility
John is a wonderful host, prompt in responding and knows the area very well.
The Cabin is very clean, spacious and has an incredible view over the valley, we were lucky to see the beautiful fall foliage and had a clear star lit nights to end each day, the log fire takes away the chill and keeps the place very cosy. Second time we have stayed and will certainly be back, highly recommended
Serene and gorgeous nature
This place is restful and inspiring, and the hosts are wonderful.
You can take beautiful walks without getting in your car, or drive to many amazing hikes nearby.
Very nice spot, if not totally secluded
This is a very comfortable and charming cottage in a very pretty area. The house is close to a general store with a surprisingly good food, produce and wine selection, and 30 minutes from Pittsfield, which has everything one needs. However, the house did not feel as private and quiet as I had hoped or expected, since the owners' swimming pool--where they gather--is right next to the cottage. (I should have appreciated that from the photos, but did not.) But if one is not looking for total seclusion, or the opportunity to socialize, it is very nice and a reasonable price.
A lovely isolated house in a marvelous landscape.
A very nice house, full equipped, with many details (even a swimming pool). Wonderful. We would like to come back.
We all absolutely loved this place!
Stayed here for long weekend and had a super time. Beautiful location, lovely view, lots of butterflies, hummingbird, deer etc. pretty garden. Cottage well equipped and very cozy. Adored the pool! Owner couldn’t have been more helpful. We didnt want to leave.!!!
