  • Lake Garfield - GREAT!

    "We enjoyed a week of fishing, bird watching, peace and quiet in this comfortable home right on the water! We loved the covered deck to "kick back" and watch the world go by. We explored Great Barrington and other areas in the Berkshires. We plan a return trip next year!"

  • Great place!

    "Rita's rental is in a wonderful location. Immediate access to the bike path, great for young kids. A 3-5 minute bike ride to the Edgartown Harbor just thrilled my 10 year-old daughter, as did the 3-5 minute walk to Katama Market. From the moment we entered the cottage, we noticed how clean and well-maintained it was, including obvious recent renovations. The owner was also a joy to work with as she was always quick to respond with thoughtful answers throughout the process, from reserving dates to dealing with the lease, to questions about the island. This place is a fabulous deal, in my opinion."
