Another excellent stay in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

One again we completely enjoyed our stay at the cottage in the woods. The cookies and loaf were delicious and the kitchen incredibly well stocked. Also everything worked perfectly -- especially enjoyed the World Cup on TV and the high speed WiFi. In spite of some extremely hot weather, the cottage cooled down well with the room air conditioners and fans. The quiet was only broken by the charming chickens and rooster from the nearby farm. Great access to The Clark and Williams College Art Museum as well as superb theatre at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Heartily recommend.

Peaceful and welcoming home in Pownal

  • 5 of 5

This house has worked out perfectly for us. We were looking for a place to stay for the Fresh Grass festival at MassMoCA, but we wanted to be in nature and enjoy peaceful mornings to relax. The screened porch has been perfect, and we feel close enough to North Adams while also feeling “away”. The hosts have been very accommodating of requests and the house was well equipped with snacks and homemade treats for us. We have everything we could need and more. Simple and lovely; we’d stay here again for sure.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house, what appears to actually be very nicely remodeled and enlarged camp, is very spacious with lot's of furnishings All modern appliances, good hot water, cold AC. The screen porch is a big plus. Comfy chairs and a pair of puffy recliners to watch the evening spread through the trees. We did not get to use the rear open deck due to rain, but we did fire up the grille one night and it's a real nice one.

The location is great for visiting all the various museums, historic sites, and just driving the country roads taking in the views. There is a great beer and wine/liquor store a couple minutes away with a huge selection including dozens of local craft beers. Try Winchester's Market for made to order deli sandwiches too.

This is a quiet country setting. You hear the horses that live down the road, and the rooster too, and that's about it beside the songbirds.. Super private. Only a couple cars a day go by and that's only because they live nearby. If you want to relax in peace and quiet this is for you.

Peace and perfection

  • 5 of 5

This is a peaceful, lovely, well-supplied home in the woods. We were greeted warmly by the owners on arrival. From the treats on the counter and in the refrigerator to all the amenities throughout the house in anticipation of individual needs, we felt well cared for. It is obvious that the owners love the house and love being inn keepers. This is where you want to stay when you are in the area. It is perfect.
