"This is a wonderful cottage with sunshine streaming in through the living room skylights and a tree-filled view from the kitchen windows. A little brook babbles behind the house where a deck offers leafy breezes. Beds are very comfortable and shower has lots of hot water. Neighbors are very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again."

"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!"

Great place to stay, very comfortable and close to Great Barrington and surrounding attractions
"Very peaceful and quiet. Great house layout. Never had a chance to use fireplace because the weather was warm. Master suite is huge and comforable. The master bathroom was a little cold. We will be going back. Great Barrington is right down the road for dining and shopping."

"This rental was a fine venue for our large family group. In addition to housing multiple family members, we used the property to host a special party for a larger number of guests. Andrea and Shawn were very helpful in helping us think through the logistics of working with the property, quick to answer my questions, and were very willing to work with us as we made arrangements with the many vendors we needed for the larger party. They were also very understanding of some of the inevitable glitches that can come up when a large group comes together. The swimming pool was a great get-away for our own family as well as guests who dropped by. If you are thinking of having a special event associated with a family gathering and need a large space, this is a fine choice. (BTW, if you are planning on using the AeroBed, throw in a set of sheets when you pack, as the linens are just for the regular beds.)
Thanks Andrea and Shawn for this lovely venue for a large family event."
