"We first chose to rent Kim and Ray's house for a few weeks several summers ago, after looking at several others, and being struck by the beautiful setting and the light, airy feeling of the house. In fact, we loved being there so much that we have stayed there repeatedly over the past few summers, and really miss it when we don't manage to get there! Ideally located on a hilltop in Alford with fabulous views from the deck overlooking the Berkshire Mountains, it is a wonderful respite from the hustle and bustle of our lives in Manhattan. The house is extremely comfortable, with lots of wonderful private and public spaces. With a well-equipped kitchen, outdoor grill, and easy access to farmers markets and excellent shopping, there is little reason to go out to eat, but there are many delicious options within a short drive from the house. Kim and Ray are wonderful hosts - they are extremely responsive and nice to deal with – and we really enjoy dealing with them. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable, peaceful retreat in the Berkshires.

"Really enjoyed this house. It's a great location in a very nice neighborhood. The swimming area at the lake is a short walk, has lifeguards and is perfect for younger kids. Well furnished, spacious kitchen, good quality furnishings and linens, very nice baths. Great Barrington is a wonderful town in a very beautiful part of the world, and there is so much to do within an hour's drive. This was our second summer renting from the owner (we stayed at her other house a couple blocks away last year) and she is great to work with."

"You're in for a treat, this place is a real sanctuary.
We have had the pleasure of staying here for years, and consistently come back for more. Our last visit, we made ourselves at home right away. As usual, we enjoyed the stunning view of the lake, cooking in the fully stocked kitchen, movies by the fireplace, and hiking.
Beyond these favorite pastimes, our most recent stay in the cottage was particularly memorable because our 10 month old daughter took her first steps here. This is truly our home away from home.
Highly recommended. We look forward to more memories ahead here."

"A very comfortable place to stay and a great location. The house is on a quiet street and has beautiful lake views and access to the lake down a short hill, and it’s also just 2 minutes off Route 7, so it’s very convenient for exploring the area. The house is well-equipped and has anything you could need. I especially appreciated having a washer/dryer after a hike at nearby Mt. Greylock got very muddy."
