"We really enjoyed our couple weeks at this authentic colonial farm house in the New England woods, just up from sweet Lenox village. It's well-kept, but you can feel the character from generations of life there. Big, broad porch, beautiful setting, next to Audubon Preserve nature trails, on the back way to Tanglewood. Probably a great place to enjoy winter too. Owner is a lovely woman, very helpful and cooperative."

"We had 4 couples rent this property for two nights for my husband's 40th birthday party. We had a great time and loved the accommodations! Every guest remarked on what a comfortable bed they had to sleep in. There was just so much room and space to move around. I think our favorite place was the front porch which provided privacy and shade from the sun but made us feel like we were living in a time where life was lived on the front porch of a home. We also enjoyed the beautiful backyard during the day for cornhole and ultimate frisbee. It was such beautiful land with cattle grazing - we loved it! The back porch is where we ate dinner and relaxed. The kitchen was amazing and had everything you could need. The house had a great warmth and energy and we felt right at home. There was so much space we could have easily had more couples/friends. We loved the privacy and were so pleased with our stay. Highly recommended! No issues at all!"

"We are not sure if this is the correct way to respond to a review like the one below - but considering how passionate we are about providing our guests with great service and how much we truly care about our property, we wanted to follow up on the concerns listed -
- We are very proud of the property, both the fact that it has it own private dock, its own boats to use and the fact - as displayed and showcased on the site - over four acres of property with diverse paths to stroll and enjoy the Berkshires. A trip around Monterey and Lake Garfield will show that there are very few areas in the Berkshires that provide that much land and private docks access to enjoy the lake. While we are sorry they were expecting the house to be right on the water, we are not looking to misrepresent the house is anyway.
- Up until this renter, we have never received about water pressure. It should be noted that like many in the area we get our water from a well, we also invested a great of money to have the water filtered and softened. It is very nice. Immediately after their stay, we went to the property ourselves to understand the issue they were describing. We could not find any issue. We could only fairly assume that a much larger group of people stayed at the house then agreed to and that the well could not handle everyone taking a shower at once.
- Regarding the appliance concern. This is really unfair. During their stay the refrigerator broke. Instead of wasting time making an appointment with a repair man, accessing the problem or ordering a part, we immediately just bought a new fridge and paid extra to have it delivered within 24 hour. In the interim, we had our property manager open up our private pantry and let them use our personal fridge and freezer. I am not sure what else we could have done.
- Regarding the trash concern. Being in the position is unfair. Our property manager came to the house immediately and cleaned up the mess.
We understand the Sterns were not happy with their stay and that is well within there right. Prior to their stay, considering the many, many pre-stay phone calls they made to us - with special needs and questions, we thought it might be a bit of a high maintenance visit. What we did not realized is that after working so hard to address their needs, they would then look to unfairly characterize their stay. Please know we did everything to make their stay perfect. Thank you."
