Beautiful! Will be back!
"We had a wonderful long weekend in your beautiful cabin. We were so pleased to find a place that felt cozy as home with a warm ambiance, nice furniture and a huge picture window of the meadow and mountains. Although the cabin is not large overall, the living room, screened porch and kitchen are roomy and generous. The kitchen is well appointed. It was such a nice setting that we decided to stay home for dinner instead of going out; cooked some fantastic steaks on the grill. (The meat market at Guido's.) I will also remember the breakfasts on the porch, lazy and tranquil.
Thanks so much Jonathan for sharing this treasure!"

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.

"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!"
