Guestbook comments from the owner

This home was the perfect house for six girlfriends to have a fall getaway! It was even nicer than we had expected! The kitchen was well equipped, open floor plan with a large island and plenty of room for us to cook and drink wine together! The dining table had lots of room for us to all sit comfortably and we found ourselves sitting and talking long after the meals...enjoying the beautiful views from the expansive windows. The bedrooms were wonderful…. Plenty of room for all six of us, and we all had very comfortable beds! This home was very clean, spacious, decorated nicely and well maintained. We enjoyed a spa day at Cranwell and some of us did some shopping in Great Barrington. Our Host gave us lots of advice on things to do and places to go! We are already talking about booking again for next fall!

Spacious home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here in Lenox. Great home and superb location, close to downtown Lenox. Huge bedrooms and kitchen, plenty of space for my family. We really enjoyed sitting out on the porch and in the chairs outside while drinking coffee and playing cards and listening to all the birds. It was such a relaxing time we didn't want to leave! Kathleen was very responsive and wonderful.

Relaxing in Lenox

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific girls get-away in the country we had in this perfect home. Large, beautiful and comfortable…with 3 fireplaces and a gorgeous kitchen! It was the perfect place to enjoy being together cooking, knitting, laughing, watching movies and touring the local attractions.

The owners, Michael and Kathleen, were extremely helpful with suggestions of things to do and places to eat as well as being sure our every need was met.

I would highly recommend this beautiful house in the woods.

A perfect 10!

A perfect country getaway

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this absolutely lovely home with 6 friends in the Fall. We had a terrific time both in the home and enjoying the Berkshires. The property is only a mile from the center of the village of Lenox.

The house is beautiful and spacious and well cared for and beautifully appointed.

Really enjoyed the owners who were so helpful, delightful and accommodating. A perfect country get away!

A gorgeous Berkshires sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been more pleased with this lovely and spotless house. A group of us were staying here while attending a wedding at The Mount, and it was the perfect place to relax and recharge before a long night of celebrating! The house was spacious, easily housing 9 people, and felt very homey. We enjoyed a breakfast in the screened in porch, and tended to our weary dancing feet in the hot tub after coming home at night. The kitchen is gorgeous, the beds are comfortable, and the scenery is so beautiful. This house is tucked away so that from the backyard, the porch, and most of the house, you really feel like you're secluded, the only one for miles in the beautiful Berkshires. Would recommend this house to anyone!

beautiful property, beautiful looking house - the property is but the house very poorly maintained

  • 3 of 5

we arrived for a 2 month stay to find the BBQ filthy - nasty according to the guys who delivered a new one. they said they forgot to clean it. it was never cleaned. The front screen door was completely smashed in and hard to open. The refrigerator was really dirty, the freezer on one side filthy. Before we arrived I asked if they had a slow cooker. the slow cooker had burned on food. the owner told me her husband is a chef and doesn't clean pots so well. I wound up ordering a new one. in fact most of the pots had to be washed before using. had no dishwasher for 5 weeks because it leaked all over the floor every time i tried to use it. the owners did call but then dropped the ball and it took 5 weeks. the fans in every room had layers of dust. the cleaning service i used said there were dust balls all over the house, under and around the beds. the vents in bathrooms were filthy. the entire right side of the house was peeling or missing paint. it looked like a house that belonged in a slum, not Lenox. the screen fell out of the MB window. I put it back using a Q-tip. They looked and said it would be fixed - two months we lived with a Q-tip in the screen. Owner will say I agreed to have it done after we left. Untrue. I don't live with Q-tips holding screens in my house. after a rain, the garage was flooded. i called them and the owner said, "We're lucky, it doesn't go into the basement." Really? fix the garage doors which were totally misaligned, put rubber between the floor and the garage door so water doesn't get in. The garage smelled so badly I stopped parking my car there. Besides, I needed boots to walk in it after a rain. I had to put the lawn chairs in the shower they were so dirty. The towels in the MB were disgusting, raggy and completely discolored. For what they charge a night, they should have the best towels, not what they had.

The house has the potential to be wonderful. I rented it because of the kitchen and dining room. They are beautiful. The master bedroom is beautiful. But they take care of nothing. It isn't worth half what they charge. I told the owners about all of this, some of it as we were getting ready to leave. But they certainly know about the smashed front door, the peeling paint all over the side of the house. I took pictures of everything but unfortunately HomeAway will not allow posting. I did give them to the owners.

Owner's Response: This tenant arrived on Saturday and had a beautiful brand new BBQ grill delivered by Tuesday morning. We knew we were putting the house on the market at the end of 2017, so we chose to have the house painted, deck power washed and re-stained and screen door replaced in the Fall so the updates would be fresh for market. When the tenant notified us that the dishwasher was leaking-a problem we had never had-I called around immediately and found one company that dealt with our brand. They come to Lenox ONE day a week. The 5 week delay was waiting for the part and then waiting for the company to be able to replace. It was completely out of our control. This tenant's review totally ignores how responsive and attentive we were to any issue brought to our attention. Her comment about the window screen that broke was "It's a house; things happen with houses" and we DID say we'd deal with it after the tenancy. our handyman promptly dealt with some minor issues such as a stuck kitchen drawer and a drain problem. The only unhappy tenant we have ever had in over ten years of renting this property.
