Beautiful home with so many extras!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the weekend at the home with 8 family members. Plenty of space to sleep everyone had their own bed. Thomas told us all we had to bring was toiletries and food and boy was he right! This home was fully stocked with linens, kitchenware, cooking supplies, paper goods. We enjoyed listening to the creek running by, watching the frogs in your pond, sitting by the fire, and watching the birds at the bird feeder. The house is secluded, but on a road with several other homes. The open floor plan allowed us to all be together in one space comfortably.

My kids 10 and 13 enjoyed exploring the kids closet upstairs for toys and perusing all the video, DVD, game and music choices.

It is pet friendly and our pup really enjoyed the yard.

Thomas was so easy to work with- great communication. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at my cabin. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you will come again. Spring, summer and fall are wonderful in the Berkshires as well, but of course warmer and you don't have to worry about your car getting stuck in the snow. Tom

Everything we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with a 10 person group while visiting the Berkeshires. Cabin was large enough to accommodate all of us but still felt cozy with the fireplace, sofas, blankets, and wood furniture/decor. Location was convenient for exploring the Berkeshires and plenty of space to park multiple cars. Would stay again!

I loved this cabin! It was my 25th birthday and my friends and I had a blast. It was beautiful,

  • 4 of 5

Close to Bash bish Falls, and the quaintest little town. The table extension was great for everyone to sit for family style dinner and board games. I would only recommend to bring your own bedding, and advise that one of the rooms fits 7 people. It can be cozy, but know that ahead. Overall we loved it. Would return.

This house was perfect for our weekend out of the city. About 10 of us were staying here for a wedding, and we were all very comfortable. The cookies and bottle of wine upon our arrival were an excellent touch. Thank you, Gilberts!

A cabin in the woods indeed - perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Hill House cabin in the woods was perfect for anyone who wants peace, relaxation and privacy. It is located right by the Green River and very close to other places such as Great Barrington, Bash Bish Falls and Tanglewood Music Center. It includes all you need except for toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner and soap. The cabin was decorated nicely and the candlesticks and votives were perfect. The charcoal broiler was great for BBQing and there is a nice fire pit by the cabin. There is plenty of space in the cabin and one feels like they are home because it is very cozy and comfortable. The deck was great to hang out and eat breakfast and dinner. There is an additional dining space outdoors by the fish pond. It was a great stay and I would recommend it.
