"Bruce was an absolute pleasure to work with. I reached out to him a week prior to an impromptu weekend gateway, and he responded immediately. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised at how tasteful decorated and well-organized the place is. The owners' attention to detail is apparent throughout the house, from neatly-labeled soap dispensers to perfectly stacked books. Our young children loved the toys and books, and the expansive yard with a swing set, hammock, and meticulously maintained flower beds. The owners live right beside this cottage, so we had the chance to bump into them here and there which made our mini-vacation extra intimate. While the younger children napped in the house, I sat in the backyard and watched my older one on the swingset. With the mountains in the background and hearing nothing but the breeze blowing through the leaves, I wondered how one could ever get tired of this view.
The only down side is that the house appears to have been converted from a farm house, so noise and light insulation is definitely lacking. One can easily hear conversations in the bedrooms upstairs and vice-versa. But Bruce's hospitality has more than made up for it. Thank you for making our family weekend in the Berkshires simply sublime!"

"This was our second VRBO home rental experience and it was a great one. The house is on a secluded road, but 15-20 minutes from many activities. We visited the NR and Shaker museums and enjoyed Mt. Greylock. Check out Les Trois Emme Winery, great owners and wine. The home was spacious, comfortable and spotless. It had everything you need including use of the garage. There were enough towels for a small army! We enjoyed the foliage, gas fireplace, large kitchen and direct TV. The heat worked quickly and the house seemed well insulated. Toby provided us with restaurant and shopping suggestions that were very helpful. Thanks Toby for a great week."

"Situated just acros a very busy (and noisy) Rt. 7 from Williams College, this was an excellent location from which to base excursions to various cultural experiences in the Berkshires. The Wiliamstown Theatre Festival (based in the Willams College Theatre) was a five minute walk across the street, the Clark Art Institute a fifteen minute walk down Rt. 7, the Bennington VT Music Festival (chamber music) was a twenty minute drive and Tanglewood approximately forty-five minutes to an hour drive. The house itself was simple and adequate (a bit dusty and cob-webby when we arrived) with a large fenced-in back yard which was great for our dog, a fully equipped kitchen and generally comfortable living quarters. A couple of quibbles: many light bulbs were burned out upon our arrival (which we replaced from the house store room supply) and the one bed that could accommodate my 6'4" height was "cratered" from what appeared to be an unsupported bed frame. Otherwise, it served our needs well for the week."

"This property was perfect for our purposes. Our family of four wanted to be near relatives for Christmas without imposing. We hosted a pre-Christmas party for nineteen with no problems on space and I made a prime rib dinner for Christmas, having every kitchen accessory imaginable. The living dining area is very spacious as is the kitchen. We loved the wood burning fireplace with plenty of wood available. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. Although we did not use the porch in the dead of winter, I can see it would be a true asset in the summer. Overall, it was just what we wanted."
