  • A Special Place

    "We would return to the Pod House in a heartbeat. It was a perfect summer getaway, set up high in the woods with a picture perfect postcard view of the distant mountain range. It's a quick drive to Great Barrington and the other wonderful Berkshire destinations, and just down the road from swimming and hiking in the state parks. The house is special, has everything you could need, and the owners are super helpful with great recommendations for places to explore and excellent restaurants in the area. My husband, two boys and I were only there one week, but it felt like a longer stay. Very relaxing!"

  • Fabulous Berkshire house!

    "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. Yoko and Joshua"

  • Great Mother/Daughter Getaway

    "My daughter and I stayed over the Memorial Day week-end and this was the perfect home base. Joanne was so accommodating. I found this on Thursday night and we were able to go on Friday even though we were having some troubles with the booking site, I called her and she was SO EASY to work with. We were glad to be able to meet her and Sadie in person. As for the property..... AMAZING! The abundance of windows and their positioning make you feel like you're in a tree-house! All you see where ever you look out is green! We loved walking down the road passing all the farms in the morning and evening. It was easy to get to restaurants and grocery stores. We found a great place to horseback ride and took a day trip to Vermont! We chose to come home each night and eat in, cooking together with the beautiful sun coming through the kitchen windows - amazing! Loved the fireplace in the center of the living room and had one each night, never turned on the TV (with a 17 year-old, that says alot!). So well set-up with the what you need, but no clutter, making it simple to enjoy just being with whomever you're with. This place is great for anybody and everybody! We didn't want to leave, but we will be back! Oh yeah, and those beds. Best night's sleep EVER!!!!"

Berkshires Travel Tips

Lodging in the Berkshires Will Give You One of the Best History Lessons

When planning your next visit to Massachusetts, schedule a stop in the Berkshires to experience some of the most unique shopping, landscapes and outdoor activity the entire family will enjoy. Discover new opportunities in your choice of lodging in the Berkshires, and you’ll look forward to another visit in the near future.

Lodging in the Berkshires Gives Access to Historical Footpaths

Rather than take a generic hike through the hills, plan on traveling down scenic trails in Williamstown near Williams College from your Berkshires rentals. Walking is the only way you may be able to travel to the summit of Mount Greylock where you'll capture a breathtaking view of the Hancock Shaker Village and Berkshires resorts located below.

Find Your Souvenir in Unique Shops near Berkshires Rentals

Other than mainstream shops for your every necessity you may need at your lodging in the Berkshires, there are several unique shopping experiences waiting for your discovery. Pay a visit to Where’d You Get That?!, a shop located in Williamstown for mementos found nowhere else. Venture to Stockbridge from Berkshires rentals in search of unique artistic pieces at Different Drummer’s Kitchen, JazzySadie’s Polish Pottery or Animal Crackers Unlimited. Of course, a stop at Persnickety Toys is in demand if the kids come along on your vacation to Berkshires resorts.

Learn about the Shaker Communities While Staying at Berkshires Resorts

At least one day away from your lodging in the Berkshires should be spent in the Hancock Shaker Village. You can drive there and enjoy coffee in the local café before ordering a breakfast made with Shaker recipes. Watch educational videos to learn about the Shakers, then tour the local artisan shops and watch several demonstrations while escaping from your Berkshires rentals. Take the kids to the Discovery Room and let them play dress-up with Shaker costumes, play Shaker games and even learn to use a loom or milk a cow druing your unforgettable stay at Berkshires resorts.
