"My extended family rented the Cleary home sight unseen for a family birthday weekend and we couldn't have been happier. The house is even prettier than it looks in the pictures, with four big bedrooms--including a huge master suite--and fully stocked with kitchen gear as well as a basement playroom with toys for children. We had a seamless interaction with Kathleen, which always makes a rental experience more pleasant. There's a big open kitchen and dining area that was perfect for our group of 11, and it's minutes from central Lenox, which is the nicest town in the Berkshires. I only wish we'd had enough time to use the hot tub!"

"This older home has so much character. The setting is convenient to Great Barrington and Stockbridge. It has a lovely property complete with a river running through it. The owners thoughtfully supplied everything we needed including soap and shampoo in the bathrooms. This was a wonderful find. I will definitely stay here again."

"I stayed in this cottage for 4 nights in mid August with my parents and 2 children (12,8). We traveled each day, so we were up early and back late. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep. We even drove to Plymouth, Mass one day (a little over 2 hours). We like to find rental properties when we travel, and this was perfect for us. We arrived after 11pm our first night, and I have to say the drive in was a little intimidating. It is a long dirt road with some hills included. I was driving an older mini van, and we had no issues at any time coming or going.
Because of our extensive traveling each day, we only had one afternoon to check out the lake and surrounding area. The lake is gorgeous. Clear water. There is a lot of seaweed looking stuff in the water. One of the locals explained that this is because it is a very healthy lake and not man made. It wasn't a problem, just something i had never experienced before. As for getting to the lake...its not right out the front door. You walk out of the house to the left, down a pretty steep hill and then to the steps down to the dock. There is only a very small "beach" (wouldn't really call it a beach, but it is where my 8 year old played in the water for a couple hours). You can swim off the dock and there is a floating dock to jump off of a little bit out from the pier, but as mentioned, the ducks us this as a bathroom, so you must be careful not to slip in the poo. We only talked to one family, but they were very friendly. You can fish off the pier (not sure about license..we didn't fish).
The kitchen is well stocked and roomy. The shower was a little small, but very wonderful water pressure, and i love the pull down shower head.
Communication with owner was very easy. Answered all questions before, during and after our stay. If we are ever back in the area, we would stay here again.
Thanks so much!!"

"Last minute booking and what a treat! Bruce was a pleasure to work with - made it all so easy. And a great price for the pricey Berkshires area. Centrally located was key since we had only a few days - this fit the bill perfectly. Living space was cozy and inviting. The kids toys were a wonderful surprise for our little one, as well as the jungle gym. Kitchen was awesome. But wow, that great view and the wide open backyard was really special. Just what we were looking for. Would have liked to have a 2nd shower (only has one, for 4 adults) but we made it work for just a couple of days. Would book again, no doubt."
