Great property and perfect place for our weekend gathering... a few improvements encouraged.

  • 3 of 5

We love the property, home, and accommodations for a weekend gathering of friends from throughout the Northeast... for eight of us the space is perfect.

Heat was not working well in lower triple bedroom- it was a cold weekend. Washing and drying all sheets and towels is a nuisance, especially with a 10:30 checkout. This is the only rental I have experienced where this is required. Also, responsibility for taking trash to the recycling center would be OK, except it is not open on the weekends. Please provide another option.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. In response to the first concern, I did check the room that was reported as being cold, the day after the rental and found that one of the windows had been left open several inches. This would have made it difficult to keep that bedroom warm on a very cold night. Also, in order to address the laundry concern we are now providing for laundry to be washed by the cleaning service instead of the renter. Lastly, we have just upgraded the kitchen with a brand new premium double oven and convection microwave oven. We hope this will make future rentals very enjoyable as well.

Great location and unique house

  • 4 of 5

The Stockbridge Barn house is very conveniently located to downtown Stockbridge and the surrounding Berkshires communities. Overall the house was great for a group of 7 people like we had. A few dated finishes in the bathrooms etc. I agree with one of the other reviewers that at the price for the house, which was a good deal, washing your own sheets is not "the norm" for VRBO. In any event, we would come again. Thanks!

Overall it's a great property. very consistent with the mood of the Berkshires.

  • 4 of 5

The property was as described. It was clean and had plenty of room for the 5 of us. The beds were made and the kitchen was well stocked.. Considering the cost I don't think we should have been required to spend our vacation time washing linens and towels. That should be a service provided. I would recommend this property preferably when you don't need air conditioning. The air conditioning is only in the bedrooms and the units in the bedrooms are so loud it's hard to go to sleep. The owner is very responsive and helpful. As in past trips we enjoyed the beach nearby, trip to Williamstown theater and Tanglewood.

Fall family weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family get-together (six in all, three couples). As other reviews suggest, the house is well laid out for this kind of grouping and the many windows on the second floor give a tree-house experience. There is a beautiful walk to a pond nearby and also easy access to some great restaurants and, for the fall, terrific apple picking.

Incredible winter weekend at the Romantic Barn in West Stockridge, MA

  • 5 of 5

Our family, eight adults & two young grandchildren, had a wonderful weekend at the Romantic Barn to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday in early December. The layout of the house is so unique - it's fun, spacious and yet cozy at the same time. The living room area with the centrally located open hearth was perfect and the furniture was comfortable and accommodated our entire family. Bedrooms were comfortable and well-furnished. The dining room area accommodated everyone at the table comfortably and the room itself was spacious. We prepared our meals throughout the weekend and found the kitchen was quite adequate and had the essential tools to get the job done. Mother nature provided the winter landscape that gave us many beautiful pictures and fond memories to take home with us. Our overall experience was simply wonderful. We would definitely stay at the Romantic Barn again. I'm grateful to the owner and HomeAway as the booking process and implementation was easy and dependable.
