Lovely stay in the Berkshires
Lovely stay in the Berkshires
This house is fantastic. It’s every bit as beautiful as the pictures, but it’s functional, too. The kitchen and dining area is wide open and spacious. The appliances – including European clothes washer and dryer – are new and first-rate. It’s a very old house that has been renovated and decorated with exquisite taste. It is immaculately clean and carefully maintained without being fussy. Great communication with the owner, who is always there when you need him but otherwise off stage. It feels very secluded but you can walk to a great little bakery/restaurant in two minutes for coffee or brunch. We are thinking of ways to get back there for a second visit.

Words cannot express
Bobby I wish I could put into words how much we enjoyed the overall experience. As great as the house looked on-line, the pictures really could not do it justice. Everything about it was just so nicely done.... And the village setting was a nice bonus. Our only regret was that you didn't work harder to enforce the 3 night minimum!

ADORABLE AND SPARKLING
Every detail in this house was cute, and up to date. Great beds and linens! SOoo cozy and snug, and such a sweet location, the sound of the brook off the back deck, sunny, whispering pines. Really romantic. And spotlessly clean!!!!

oh so chic!
Loved this house! The rustic combined with modern, the beautiful color palette, the hardwood floors with nubby thick carpets, well-stocked kitchen with vodka in the freezer! Comfortable seating, windows everywhere, and oh so chic!

The house was so great. Everything was wonderful. We were so impressed with the way you had restored and decorated it - even better than the pictures.

"the house she always wanted"
We all loved the house and it definitely proved a peaceful, cozy getaway for the holiday weekend. My mom said something like "this is the house I always wanted." I really enjoyed the home. That big white couch is awesome, and doing work on the kitchen table near the window with the stove cranking is a very pleaseant experience.
