"This charming cottage in the midst of the forest is a delightful find! My husband and I stayed here for about 10 days in August. Our adult kids came out to join us for a couple of nights. We all had a wonderful time, including picnics at Tanglewood and Jacob’s Pillow, wandering around Great Barrington, and a day trip to Mount Greylock and the Clark Institute in Williamstown. But best of all was reading in the hammock on the screen porch with a cup of coffee, or listening to music while chopping vegetables for dinner in the big open kitchen. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, and the hosts have arranged the house very intuitively so that everything is right where you need it. Their recommendations for places to eat, local hikes, and other entertainments helped us get situated right away, and they were very gracious and responsive to any inquiries. We really enjoyed the mix of quiet solitude and cultural activity—not to mention the beauty of the natural setting – and hope to go back when the opportunity arises."Guest: Caroline Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 26, 2014View listing
"Mu husband, 1 year old daughter and I stayed here for a two night escape from the city. Although the weather was very cold, the house was warm and welcoming. The location was perfect for exploring the picturesque nearby towns and countryside. The hot tub was a perfect way to unwind in the evening! The house had everything we could ask for and Holly was quick to respond to queries prior to booking. We highly recommend a stay, we might just be back in summer!"Guest: Tracey C.

"The owner's description was entirely accurate, as was the exterior photograph. The house has many virtues--large (one enormous) rooms, a large deck overlooking a narrow portion of the Housatonic, which widens near the house; top of the line kitchen appliances and a bathroom whose fabulous shower could accommodate four friendly adults; clear labels on everything--tracklights, rooms, stairways, step-downs from room to room, kitchen cabinet contents, a wide range of kids' toys in a first floor living room w/ metal Franklin?(stove); any and all paper goods, cleansers, picnic provisions, hair dryers--you get the idea--nothing missing but a few vases & a cocktail shaker. Two parking spaces adjacent to house. Terrific! The exception: house is a few doors from a general store w/ outdoor seating. No later than 7 am, often earlier, workers drove up (noisy trucks), had breakfast coffee and LOUD conversations. Second floor bedroom fronts on sidewalk, ergo worker conversations. Friends who stayed one night in a rear bedroom on first floor made the same complaint. Bring industrial strength earplugs and a sense of humor. The owner was entirely helpful re questions. With the caveats of outdoor noise and the many stairs (often step-down single steps into rooms and baths, potentially hazardous for visually impaired or older people), the house is splendid. Except for the above, I'd recommend it to anybody. West Stockbridge is the opposite of Lenox, though nearby. A village of sorts with a few interesting shops and adequate restaurants. In August it celebrates a zucchini festival--old-fashioned, goofy, charming, extensive. It's close to Berkshire Botanical Garden--fabulous--and Norman Rockwell Museum--kitsch--and then there's Stockbridge itself, Lenox, et al. All the music, theatre and dance (Beckett--Jacob's pillow) you could ask for. It's great for families with teenagers because the kids can take over the 1st floor (family room w/ fireplace, games, super-big tv, bath, its own bathroom)-- only drawback--outdoor noise big time. Bring earplugs, watch the indoor single steps, have a dandy experience."Guest: fanchon brookline Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 7, 2014View listing
"Once agin we completely enjoyed our week long stay in this wonderful house. It is the perfect spot for relaxation and quiet with all the amenities. We especially appreciate how immaculate and well equipped the house is -- top of line everything, lots of towels etc, and complete directions on how things work. If desired, there is satellite TV and a good selection of DVDs and books. A new feature is the back up generator which we didn't have to use but would be wonderful in a power outage. Toby is an excellent host who is prompt and efficient and great at offering suggestions about Berkshire attractions. We sampled more Berkshire riches by visiting the Freylinghausen-Morris house which is an interesting example of Modernist architecture and art and the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, a fine old style institution. Heartily recommend the house and the Berkshires!"Guest: Theatre People Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 28, 2014View listing
