Recent Berkshires reviews

  • A Special Place

    "We would return to the Pod House in a heartbeat. It was a perfect summer getaway, set up high in the woods with a picture perfect postcard view of the distant mountain range. It's a quick drive to Great Barrington and the other wonderful Berkshire destinations, and just down the road from swimming and hiking in the state parks. The house is special, has everything you could need, and the owners are super helpful with great recommendations for places to explore and excellent restaurants in the area. My husband, two boys and I were only there one week, but it felt like a longer stay. Very relaxing!"

  • Great family getaway

    "Great stay. My family enjoyed every moment from taking a walk, to creating our own artwork, to collecting our own eggs. Kids loved having their own private area upstairs (Like a clubhouse with a special staircase). Great location to see the area. Looking forward to coming back."

  • Wonderful cabin

    "This was our first trip to the Berkshires and I wanted a cabin/home by a lake so that our teenage sons and any friends that visited us would have a ready source of entertainment. I didn't want a fancy home, but rather something that felt like a lake house. This home fit the bill. The living room is just as pictured, huge windows looking out on the surrounding woods. A fantastic place to sit in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the wildlife (in particular a rabbit my oldest son even named) and relax. The lake was a short walk down a grass path and there were plenty of back roads that I could run on in the area. We spent time walking in the area and at Pittsfield State Forest. We also visited the Catamount Trees Aerial Adventure Park and had a fantastic time there. It's not to be missed if you have adventure lovers in your group. And most of all, we relaxed, read books, put together puzzles, and spent time catching up with old friends. It was a fantastic vacation."

  • A Response to the Stern Review Below

    "We are not sure if this is the correct way to respond to a review like the one below - but considering how passionate we are about providing our guests with great service and how much we truly care about our property, we wanted to follow up on the concerns listed - - We are very proud of the property, both the fact that it has it own private dock, its own boats to use and the fact - as displayed and showcased on the site - over four acres of property with diverse paths to stroll and enjoy the Berkshires. A trip around Monterey and Lake Garfield will show that there are very few areas in the Berkshires that provide that much land and private docks access to enjoy the lake. While we are sorry they were expecting the house to be right on the water, we are not looking to misrepresent the house is anyway. - Up until this renter, we have never received about water pressure. It should be noted that like many in the area we get our water from a well, we also invested a great of money to have the water filtered and softened. It is very nice. Immediately after their stay, we went to the property ourselves to understand the issue they were describing. We could not find any issue. We could only fairly assume that a much larger group of people stayed at the house then agreed to and that the well could not handle everyone taking a shower at once. - Regarding the appliance concern. This is really unfair. During their stay the refrigerator broke. Instead of wasting time making an appointment with a repair man, accessing the problem or ordering a part, we immediately just bought a new fridge and paid extra to have it delivered within 24 hour. In the interim, we had our property manager open up our private pantry and let them use our personal fridge and freezer. I am not sure what else we could have done. - Regarding the trash concern. Being in the position is unfair. Our property manager came to the house immediately and cleaned up the mess. We understand the Sterns were not happy with their stay and that is well within there right. Prior to their stay, considering the many, many pre-stay phone calls they made to us - with special needs and questions, we thought it might be a bit of a high maintenance visit. What we did not realized is that after working so hard to address their needs, they would then look to unfairly characterize their stay. Please know we did everything to make their stay perfect. Thank you."
