  • 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. Highly recommend!"

  • A Response to the Stern Review Below

    "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."

  • Fantastic, Friendly, Comfortable, Delightful

    "As we drove up to this house, our mouths dropped at how beautiful this house was. Then, with every step into the house, we were more pleased. It was everything we hoped it would be and more, for our New Years Eve getaway. The kitchen was perfect for cooking, which we did a lot of, filled with every pot, pan, spice, and dish one could ever need; the dining room was a fantastic place for all 11 of us to comfortably enjoy our meals, which we did morning & night; the main living room was warm and welcoming with the fireplace burning, and where we spent most of our time; and each one of us slept like babies in the very comfortable bedrooms. I can't say enough about how wonderful, clean, spacious, warm, and beautifully decorated this house was and how fantastic Carol was to all of our needs. We absolutely want to make this an annual event!"

  • Absolutely Wonderful

    "This was a girls weekend retreat. I have been using HomeAway (cyber rental) for the past 15 years. This was one of the cleanest I have stayed at. I have never returned to the same one twice as there are just so many different places to go. We all agreed though to return to this one next year if possible. The yard is quite large for being in a lake community. The kitchen was well stocked. There is a grocery store near by (10 min). Pittsfield is close enough to go out to eat. We just had a great time and can't say enough good things about it."
