Clean, comfortable and much better than a hotel!
"I stayed in this cottage for 4 nights in mid August with my parents and 2 children (12,8). We traveled each day, so we were up early and back late. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep. We even drove to Plymouth, Mass one day (a little over 2 hours). We like to find rental properties when we travel, and this was perfect for us. We arrived after 11pm our first night, and I have to say the drive in was a little intimidating. It is a long dirt road with some hills included. I was driving an older mini van, and we had no issues at any time coming or going.
Because of our extensive traveling each day, we only had one afternoon to check out the lake and surrounding area. The lake is gorgeous. Clear water. There is a lot of seaweed looking stuff in the water. One of the locals explained that this is because it is a very healthy lake and not man made. It wasn't a problem, just something i had never experienced before. As for getting to the lake...its not right out the front door. You walk out of the house to the left, down a pretty steep hill and then to the steps down to the dock. There is only a very small "beach" (wouldn't really call it a beach, but it is where my 8 year old played in the water for a couple hours). You can swim off the dock and there is a floating dock to jump off of a little bit out from the pier, but as mentioned, the ducks us this as a bathroom, so you must be careful not to slip in the poo. We only talked to one family, but they were very friendly. You can fish off the pier (not sure about license..we didn't fish).
The kitchen is well stocked and roomy. The shower was a little small, but very wonderful water pressure, and i love the pull down shower head.
Communication with owner was very easy. Answered all questions before, during and after our stay. If we are ever back in the area, we would stay here again.
Thanks so much!!"

"We met up with family over the weekend at this lovely home. We had three couples and two children along and everyone had a great time! There was plenty of space, comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. The setting is peaceful and beautiful. Kim was so great to work with. Our car broke down unexpectedly and Kim was amazing in helping us extend our stay while it was fixed. I highly recommend this home!"

"This is a great house for a big family gathering. So comfortable, perfectly furnished, very child friendly and GREAT location - walk to the lake! We felt so at home here. BBQ and porch were wonderful. We are so appreciative of our week and hope to return next year. I've stayed in a lot of rental homes and this was the best by far! Thank you!"

"Very peaceful and quiet home, lots of space to accommodate a large family. Thoughtful accommodations, lots of fun books to read along with board games for the family. Very close to the town of Great Barrington where we enjoyed various tasty cuisines. The area is great for hiking, the views from the mountains are simply breathtaking. Definitely a place I would visit again. Full disclosure, cell phone service at best is very poor and so is the Wi-Fi, but who needs service when you are enjoying quiet bonding time with family and friends."
