Wonderful house, beautiful property, and a terrific area to explore...two big thumbs up!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for 2 weeks with 4-6 adults and 2 kids and found the house spacious, well layed out, and very comfortable. There was great outdoor play space for our kids (3 & 8), a big grill for cooking, and a patio with beautiful views and nature all around. The surrounding area has some wonderful restaurants around, great farms to visit and buy produce, and lots of different activities available. The owners, Amanda and her husband, were incredibly helpful with suggestions and planning before we even arrived. We would definitely rent here again if coming back to the Berkshires area.

What an excellent place!

  • 5 of 5

This house and property is just that, a beautiful retreat nestled in the woods. We were constantly impressed with how nice the house was, and how pristine the yard was. We had plenty of space, everything in the house worked perfectly and was very clean. The house is close to so many exciting hikes and small towns, we could have spent more time there. Highly recommended, and would love to stay again!

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely house. Amanda, the owner, was great about responding and offered helpful suggestions before our arrival. She was so easy to deal with. There were 8 adults and 2 children and we had more than enough room. The large kitchen table was a great place to gather for meals, games, etc. The third floor had a huge room which was a bonus as a play area for the kids. There was ample pantry space and the bedrooms were big and comfy with lots of room for suitcases, etc. There is a basketball hoop and some fun outdoor games in the garage. A newly completed fire pit was one more nice touch that we enjoyed using at night. George, the caretaker, was so friendly, responsive, and helpful. He made himself readily available, stopping by several times to check in. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone needing a large accommodation.

Terrific House

  • 5 of 5

We had a spectacular week at this house. The occasion was a family gathering of our kids and five grandkids, ages 18 months to six years.

There was more than adequate room for everyone to have their own space for sleeping, bathing, and recreational activities. The playroom on the third floor proved to be a great spot for the older kids to entertain themselves while the adults were socializing. The books, games and sporting equipment that were provided was an added benefit. The kitchen and dining areas were spacious and provided a great variety of options.

The grounds are maintained impeccably and the views from the back deck were fabulous, both morning and evening. It was, as Amanda promised, a 10 minute drive to downtown Great Barrington and less than that to the beach at Lake Mansfield.

I would definitely recommend this house to others. Thanks Amanda.
