Beautiful house in peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were here for a long weekend getaway in late June.

House and setting: The house is one of the most attractive and well-maintained we have seen in 20+ years using VRBO. The location is quiet and bucolic, and the casual dining area and the back porch look out on a particularly lovely garden. (Keep an eye out for wildlife, which included chipmunks and foxes -- even a bear wandered through but didn't linger one afternoon!) There are so many lovely features, including a renovated and well-equipped kitchen, remote-controlled air conditioning units, both a den/TV room and a formal living room (with piano!). The house is suitable for an extended family or 2-3 couples, with a ground-floor bedroom suite (including bath with shower but no tub) as well as 3 bedrooms and a bath upstairs.

Convenience: The location is convenient to restaurants and the Saturday farmer's market in Great Barrington (about 10 mins by car). The house is only about 15-20 mins from the outlet shopping in Lee, and a 30 min. drive to Jacob's Pillow.

Management: Teva Smith was professional, very communicative, and responsive.

Tips: Because of some interior decorations, the small fountain pond and hot tub, as well as the wildlife, I would not recommend this house for families who do not plan to supervise children closely. For convenience of directions and check-in/check-out, I would also say to get the VRBO app on your smartphone if you don't already have it. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return!

Perfect for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, very well maintained, furnished and equipped. The garden and property were lovely. The location is excellent, north of Great Barrington and an easy drive to all area attractions.

We can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Harmony in Great Barrington. The home was well decorated, spacious and very private. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a welcome basket that was filled with wonderful treats, coffee and supplies to make s'mores. The thoughtful owner even left champagne and breakfast items in the refrigerator! We enjoyed spending time on the back porch which had a view of a beautiful garden. In addition, the manager was very helpful and responded to our needs immediately. We can't wait to go back!

It doesn't get better than this

  • 5 of 5

Whether for a short stay or a lengthy one, this house and its beautiful property are an ideal retreat from which to experience life in the Berkshires. After five successive one month rentals here, my husband and I can say from experience that we love the well-outfitted house, the idyllic grounds (especially the breezy covered porch with outdoor grill and hot tub overlooking the luscious flower gardens) and the secluded hill location with easy access to town by bike or car. There are not two nicer or more helpful people than the property's owners, and the information book they provide will tell you everything you need to know about local restaurants (terrific), museums, theatre, music and other cultural attractions (also terrific). The nearby markets and the wonderfully appointed kitchen overlooking the garden also make this an ideal house in which to cook and entertain. And for a romantic evening, there is a fire pit just a few steps off the porch. I can't imagine anywhere I'd be happier to be.

Owner's Response: It's been our pleasure to open up our home to you and know that you have enjoyed all that the Berkshires have to offer. With the warm weather approaching, we look forward to sitting on the back porch to relax and admire the gardens.
