Recent Berkshires reviews

  • Berkshire Bliss

    "We loved our stay at the Bershire cottage. The owners Shira and Bruce were quick to respond and very accommodating. The cottage itself was perfect. Decorated beautifully, immaculate, and thoughtfully stocked (there was even wine and cookies left as a welcome). The cottage is located in on a very private lot with beautiful views. A quick 7 mile drive and you are downtown Great Barrington. We found the location central to exploring all that the Bershires has to offer. Thank you Shira and Bruce for sharing your little slice of heaven. We can't wait to come back!"

  • A comfortable stay in a beautiful place!

    "For the second year, my childhood friends and I have stayed for a weekend at the Golden Hill Farm house and we are already planning our return for next year! This large house is perfect for our group of six with a well stocked kitchen, large dining table, and comfortable beds. Peaceful views out the window, birds, chickens, horses... The house is a short distance from great dining in Lenox, outlets in Lee, and New England charm in Great Barrington. Wendy and Tim are a pleasure to book with. Would recommend this house without reservation!"

  • Perfect stay in lovely home

    "My husband and I, along with our Westie, Zipper, spent 5 wonderful weeks in this lovely home, coming from Georgia to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We were charmed by the many exquisite architectural features in this house; one has only to look closely at the pictures, which are an accurate representation. The kitchen and bathrooms are small by today's standards, but are true to size for a home almost 100 years old! The home was very well maintained, and I would guess it had been a beloved home of a happy family. A couple of things it may be helpful for a large group to know..... All 4 bedrooms are upstairs, and guests staying in the two with twin beds must pass through an adjacent bedroom to access the bathroom. It wasn't an issue for the two of us as we only used 1 of the bedrooms, but a large group of non-family members would want to be aware of this layout. A small claw foot bathtub was added to the half bathroom downstairs, making it a full bath, immediately prior to our arrival, and it was perfect for our needs. In fact, everything about this house was perfect! The owners were delightful to work with as well--responsive, kind, and considerate. There is a river on the property running parallel to the driveway, where we enjoyed coffee every morning. While the house is only about 5 minutes from downtown Great Barrington, the setting is so private that you feel as if you are in the country. The house isn't air-conditioned, and we were a little concerned that we might be trading the heat and humidity of a Georgia summer for one in Massachusetts, but that was a needless worry. Abutting a hillside, the house remained cool throughout our 5 weeks there -- even upstairs (and there are fans in every bedroom). Not only was the location perfect for its proximity to downtown GB, it was also ideal for short day trips to Connecticut (we especially enjoyed Kent), western New York, and the entire Berkshires area. GB itself, as well as 90 minutes in any direction, promises a variety of culturally rich offerings including concerts, plays, etc. And, you must visit the Berkshire Mountain Bakery in Housatonic (about 10 minutes from the house) for the amazing variety of breads and home-made pizzas. The "bread with dark chocolate" was worth every pound gained from our (MY) almost daily indulgence. And, if you're traveling with a dog, you'll want to visit Tina at Ben's Dotter Pet Store and Robin at Wash & Wag for grooming. A delightful stay all around!"

  • The Berkshires at Its Best

    "I knew when we booked this home that we'd be in for a true Berkshires experience. And, it did not disappointment. This home is the real deal for those seeking a true log home, beautiful, and serene getaway. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a pitcher filled with fresh basil and mint from the garden that we put to use that evening when we made and enjoyed a candlelit dinner on the screened in porch. My morning coffee never tasted so good... sitting on the porch watching the sun and clouds rise is breathtaking. We visited Guido's local fresh market (which is a must) and were lucky enough to bump into Meryl Streep in the cheese department. We also took in Tanglewood and some of the local wineries. However, in the middle of a beautiful Saturday afternoon, on of our friends said, why don't we go back and simply enjoy that beautiful home? Which is exactly what we did... we sat outside, laid out blankets, let the dogs run around, and simply enjoyed our surroundings. I highly recommend this home and its owner."
