Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jeff,

We spent yet another great weekend at your house. It's beginning to feel like home-away-from-home, as we know where to find things and how to use the spa vs pool, etc.

What a great house, and you cannot beat the view! Thanks for the opportunity to once again enjoy it!

Would you be willing to rent it to us again next year--June 24-27th?

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 adults and 2 teenagers spent the long weekend at this house. It was absolutely the perfect setup for us. Everything you could possibly need was included. Jeff was very easy to deal with and everything was better than we expected!

The view is just spectacular!! The sunsets are amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Jeff was great to work with. We had a small arrival issue and it was taken care of quickly and we were all very satisfied. The house was clean; the beds were super comfortable, and the spa was just what we needed. We watched the shooting stars at night and totally enjoyed the property. Thank you for a great weekend. All of the ladies raved about what a fabulous time we had. Hope to come back again.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 10 college friends who had a wonderful 3 night stay at this house. The setting was beautiful overlooking the lake and mountains and the house was clean, spacious and very well equipped. The kitchen was well stocked and plenty of dishes and silverware were provided. The large dining table was a perfect gathering place for all of us. The bedroom/bath layout was awesome and all the beds were very comfortable. We didn't use the pool/hot tub but they looked great with all the decking and furniture. The ride to Lenox and Stockbridge was easy. Jeffrey was very responsive and easy to work with. We would highly recommend this house for any group looking to spend time in the Berkshires.

Perfect for a college reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights and it coul could not have been more perfect. The view was spectacular! The house was very, very comfortable and clean. Checking in was very easy. Jeff was so helpful and available. We all agreed that this beautiful, comfortable home was just perfect for a college reunion. I highly recommend this not only for all of the activities near the house, but for the ease and comfort of staying there. The house is very well equipped with a fantastic kitchen and dining room. We hope to be back!! Thank you Jeff.

Lovely spacious home with something for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

The listed description was accurate. The furnishings, beds, towels, kitchen were all of high quality. We loved the spacious home with plenty of large spaces for our family to gather together, as well as places to go and read, or be alone. The open kitchen/eating areas is a wonderful space for lots of people to help or hang out. The owner provided excellent service. I would definitely recommend it for families or groups of friends. We enjoyed visiting the Norman Rockwell museum, the Shaker Village (could have spent half a day there), and LOVED wandering around W. Stockbridge(renown artist's workshop who provides mobiles to top museums), and shopping/ice cream in Lenox. We missed the season of Jacob's Pillow and Tanglewood shows-- will try to catch them next time!

An amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our family vacation here this summer and we had an absolutely fantastic time. My little kids had a blast swimming both in the big pool and the hot tub, which was actually a wonderful way to get in the water on a cool morning. The bedrooms were great, including tons of bathrooms, most connected to the rooms themselves. The porches are outstanding; not only did we play board games on the screened in porch until all hours but we sat on the open decks watching blasting thunderstorms over the lake and an incredible meteor shower late into the night. The kitchen was great and bar area were perfect, and there were so many spices and extras stocked in the pantry that we didn't have to run out for every little thing.

Jeff, the owner is pleasant and easy going to deal with, and really just made the vacation so relaxing and stress free. We would definitely recommend this house for a wonderful vacation in the Berkshires.
