Recent Monterey property reviews

  • A beautiful refuge in the treetops by the lake

    "My partner and I spent a week at this enchantingly unique cottage, and are planning to return next summer. It makes ingenious use of its steep and dramatic site, offering stunning views of the lake from every level while maintaining a comfy and welcoming aura. Photos don't really do it justice. The wooded surroundings offer seclusion, and the lake itself is clean, clear, and beautiful. It was sheer bliss to sit by the fireplace in the evenings. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the top terrace is a perfect place to enjoy lunch or dinner from the charcoal grill. Just two caveats: this is a very vertical property, so if stairs are a problem, you might look elsewhere. And the two side bedrooms, with loft beds, are most suitable for children or adults under 5'7", though the futon couch in the living room is very comfortable. In any case, this place is a true gem."

  • Wonderful time!

    "My husband, our two daughters, and I had a wonderful week at the lake! We loved the house and beautiful yard. And we had a great time playing with the kayaks, canoe, inflated toys, paddleboard, and floating swim dock. We had a lovely quiet week with the lake to ourselves after Labor Day! Everyone was happy to simply hang out at the house and the lake, we didn't need anything else. And we were excited to see bald eagles! One day we went to the Catamount Aerial Adventure Park to climb the rope courses and ziplines. What a fantastic time! It's less than a 1/2 hour from the house. My kids were so sad to leave, they really felt like this was home away from home. Thank you!"

  • Lake Garfield - GREAT!

    "We enjoyed a week of fishing, bird watching, peace and quiet in this comfortable home right on the water! We loved the covered deck to "kick back" and watch the world go by. We explored Great Barrington and other areas in the Berkshires. We plan a return trip next year!"

  • A Charming and Relaxing Home Away From Home

    "Our family of four, including a 20- and 14-year old, had a very nice week in August at this charming house. We enjoyed the convenience of the nearby Lake Garfield/Monterey Town Beach for swimming and kayaking, and hiking at Beartown State Forest. We were able to cook meals there if we did not want to drive to Great Barrington to a restaurant -- the kitchen had all the cookware and dishes we needed. The SoCo Creamery in Great Barrington has excellent ice cream and doubles as a place to sit and use WiFi. The gentleman who is caretaker is very helpful and accommodating, as are the owners. It was too warm to use the fireplaces, but they are large and cozy-looking. The solarium is also a very pretty place to sit for an early breakfast on a summer morning as it overlooks the huge back yard and woods. I would recommend it to families or anyone looking for proximity to outdoor activities and the museums and theaters in the Berkshires area."
