Recent Great Barrington reviews

  • Perfect for large family

    "This is quite simply an amazing property! We had 11 family members in our party for 5 days, and we were amazed at how this home met our needs with a high level of comfort and privacy for everyone. Every detail was taken care of by the owners who were gracious hosts and really nice people, too! We entertained a total of 17 for New Years Eve and there was ample space and seating for everyone. (great house for entertaining) The chef's kitchen with professional Wolf range made the cooks in our party very happy. 2 dishwashers made cleanup easy. 3.5 miles to Great Barrington made it easy to get to town for coffee at "Fuel" after a morning run. This was truly exceptional! Can't wait to come back in summer! Thanks Gayle and Joel for a memorable holiday!"

  • Our 2nd time - wonderful property, location and hospitality

    "This property is amazing. The location is perfect - 5 mins to town, 8 mins to butternut. Set back from the road, secluded (no visible neighbors from inside the house) on a river, amazing bones (exquisite chandelier, grand piano, antique details, sweeping staircase, carved moldings and French doors, fireplaces, hardwood floors) along with great, tasteful and useful upgrades (lovely claw footed tub, new mudroom, easy access to new washer, dryer, nest heating controls, blueray player). The living space is grand and comfortable - plenty of seating (essentially 2 living rooms connected). The wood for the fireplace is accessible and plentiful - bonus there is no extra charge for wood! There are views of the river from the bedrooms - and each bedroom is tasteful and comfortable. Master is spacious. For bathing - well stocked (shampoo and body wash, plenty of towels). Water is plenty warm and water pressure great. Great dining space fits 6-8 comfortably. Kitchen is small but easy to use and well stocked. The owners are incredibly easy going, personable and professional. We were welcomed with a personal note, bottle of wine and biscotti. Any time I emailed the owner - I got an immediate and reasonable response. And as a second time renter of the property - already had established trust with the owners. Our kids talk about this house during the year - and we promise them a week next year. Highly recommend!"

  • 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!"

  • Wonderful place to stay

    "We stayed here for a long MLK weekend of skiing and LOVED it. The cottage is very charming and well decorated. The property is beautiful and the kids loved running around in the snow out front. The porch entry was perfect for getting our ski gear off before going into the house. We also loved their collection of old vinyl LP's. The reservation and key exchange was easy. We would definitely stay here again for a weekend escape from the city!"
