"Kate was so accommodating and friendly, not to mention the house was absolutely beautiful and ready to be stayed in. My fiance's family came to visit from Brooklyn, NY and we just didn't have enough room in our small apartment. We decided last minute to rent a house and Kate was able to accommodate them within two days notice. The house was super cozy, nice and warm, and slept everyone comfortably. She relieved a lot of stress for us that weekend and we cannot thank her enough. We will DEFINITELY be renting her home again. What a perfect visit :)."

"This was our first time in the Berkshires, and it definitely won't our last. This cottage was perfectly comfortable for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids. The bunk beds were a big hit. The yard is huge with a play structure, and we roasted smores almost every night. Craig responded quickly to our questions, and kept us posted with updates during our stay. We will definitely consider returning.
great location (very close to Tanglewood, Lenox town center, grocery and liquor stores, athletic club)
very close to the lake access (a couple of hundred feet away). The lake access is not big, but was hardly ever anyone else there, so it felt almost private. The lake is beautiful. There is a larger beach a long walk away, but it wasn't much better than the private beach.
Cons (these are for planning purposes, and were not major issues for us):
Close to train tracks. Freight trains came by every hour or two.
Kitchen has basic utensils and cookware, but it's not stocked with food staples. Definitely bring your own essentials (e.g. high quality knives), if cooking is your thing."

Beautiful, Well-situated Family Gathering Place, with everything you could possibly desire!
"Everything was perfect about this home: our family (ages 8 months to 94 yrs.) enjoyed all the activity spaces indoors and out, the well-stocked kitchen, the wonderful yard and sitting areas, and the convenience to the Stockbridge Lake (including the use of a canoe and kayak). Owner Hillary was extraordinarily helpful and patient in quickly responding to all our little planning questions. We would all highly recommend this home to anyone who would like to spend a relaxing week in a spacious, super-homey setting. While there, we enjoyed biking on the Ashuwillticook rail trail in Lanesborough, dining at the Bascom Lodge on Mt. Greylock, seeing a play at Shakespeare & Co., visiting the Norman Rockwell Museum and Naumkeag Mansion and Edith Wharton's summer home at The Mount, and eating out at Chez Nous and Sullivan Station in Lee, along with the Red Iron Inn in Stockbridge. And we only scratched the surface of things to do in this area. Would love to return!"

"We spent two weeks at Silvernail Farm with our 5 yr old and 3 yr old and made some memories that we will not soon forget! This home is beautifully decorated, comfortable, welcoming, spotless, and really well set up for a family with children (e.g. outdoor play toys, a game closet full of puzzles and board games, a chest full of kids' DVDs). My most favorite things about this house is the large rectangular window right above the kitchen sink that provides a panoramic view of the beautiful scenery, and the hammock in the yard. The children played outside all day in the sandbox, the play structure, and on the tree swings. We used the grill to make dinner, and took advantage of the few rainy days to watch movies as a family. The house is extremely well situated to all the wonderful amenities of the Berkshires. We were able to attend multiple concerts at Tanglewood, as well as a show at Jacob's Pillow, and the Clark Art Institute. This house is a gem, and we are already making plans to return this Fall and next summer!"
