"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!"

"Waking up to the sound of the waterfall was how we started each day in this Berkshire paradise. Beautiful, private property in a fabulous location! We couldn't have imagined a better home base, providing access to nature,water sports, and all the cultural venues in the area."

A panacea to the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. It's tranquility and serenity will amaze.
"The tree house is a work of art both inside and out. We had privacy yet were close to restaurants; grocery stores etc and all the good things the Berkshires has to offer. The house is accurately represented, however, it looks better in person. So Zen. The owners are an absolute pleasure, thoughtful, organized and very responsive. There is a list of people that can be contacted in case we should have needed anything..which we did not. It's footage on paper may seem relatively small...yet once in...it feels beautifully spacious. The pod is Immaculate. It's simple yet stylish. Comfortable. The beds are comfy. Everything needed is provided with thoughtfully placed touches of luxury.
My husband and two 11 year olds went with our dog and had plenty of room. This a special place, it gave us an opportunity to get back in touch with nature and leave the chaos of the rat race behind. Each morning, we awoke and each evening we went to bed with the view of tree tops, the singing of birds and the sweet gurgling of a sweet stream just feet away from the bedrooms. Absolutely enthralling.
We enrolled our children at Hi Rock Camp for two weeks...an idea I got from a previous reviewer...which they loved! While our children were busy canoeing and horseback riding, my husband and I got to spend time relaxing. The internet service is fast and reliable - the GB's are limited yet within reason for regular internet use. For my husband and I...that was the best part...being able to spend our time with our family without the lure of the usual distractions.
To the owners, thank you for your lovely hospitality and for sharing your unique & amazing home with us! We hope very much to return."

"The process of renting and communicating with the owners was very easy. Francis and Rosemary are very friendly and helpful. The location was easy to find and accurate to the description on the site. It was a wonderful place to relax and explore the Berkshires. Neighborhood is quite and friendly and extremely beautiful with the view of the lake. One big plus is that it is an ALL SEASON accommodation, would love to see it in the winter time. This is a wonderful place to stay and we have been recommending it to our friends and family."
