Lovely house, but watch out for costs

  • 4 of 5

The house was lovely: tidy and well organized. It looks just like the photo and worked very well for us. There were three bikes in the garage (but bring your own helmets) that was not listed but was a nice surprise. In addition, the house is located very near the Rockwell Museum and we walked there. Finally, we met one of the owners and she was very nice. Bring your own stuff if you plan on going to Tanglewood or other outdoor events - blankets to sit on, folding lawn chairs, printed tickets, the house has none of that. We had only one negative. I have deducted one star because of the payment system. The house is not cheap and on top of it, we were charged $105 from our deposit for "VRBO credit card charges". We also were charged $200 directly by VRBO. The added $300 was a lot of money. Airbnb is probably a better way to go.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, Thank you for the feedback about Tangelwood chairs, etc. I will share with the owners, who always want to know how to make the house more functional. I have no control over the vrbo fee they apply to renters. Any time a credit card there are fees associated with using it. As a company working only on commission I am not be able to absorb those credit card fees. there are several options on how to book thru vrbo so I hope we can go over them more carefully in the future. This was the first season where this came into play so I hope to be more clear moving forward. Susan, you were a fabulous guest. Please feel free to contact me any time. :) Claudia Laslie Berkshire Rental Properties

Really lovely house - worked perfectly for our family's vacation

  • 5 of 5

In general I'm hesitant to book a house rental based on internet pictures. But our family was nothing but pleased with the Linde House! The house is clean, spacious, comfortable, and the kitchen was better equipped than my kitchen at home! The outdoor space including the seating area was especially lovely. The house is very well located - a quick trip into Stockbridge, 5 minutes to Chesterwood, and 10-12 minutes to Tanglewood. Couldn't have asked for a better home base for out two week Berkshire family vacation.

Summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our adventure began with looking on the internet and we found a lovely house-Linde House. Claudia Laslie from Berkshire Rental Property was very efficient and helpful at the same time. In preparation for the rental we went out and bought sheets and towels for our stay but was pleasantly surprised to find an immaculate, well appointed house so all of our purchases remained in the car. We found the home to be extremely comfortable and also enjoyed eating breakfast outside under the pergola. The beds, showers, kitchen, etc. were very comfortable.The owners were so nice and friendly and didn't even get upset when we locked ourselves out of the house and they came right over to let us in. They also left us bottles of water and a bottle of wine with appropriate Berkshire magazines to help us with our vacation plans. We hope to return to Linde House next summer. We would not hesitate to recommend this rental house!!!!

My Favorite Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I love this property and try to stay here every time I visit the Berkshires. This house Is beautiful from the outside in, very tastefully decorated and the furniture is wonderfully paired for the rooms they are in. With the first floor hosting a bedroom with a full bath right next to it, it makes this house ideal to stay in even when traveling with someone that can't take a lot of stairs. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood with beautiful mountain views this home just automatically makes you feel welcome and like you belong. When planning a stay here all you need is your clothing and any personal affects you would need to keep yourself happy. The kitchen has full dining and cookware, a ping pong table for entertainment, a mini den with an elliptical and Xbox there's something for everyone. Even a wonderful hill in the backyard that will be perfect for sledding in the winter. This home is perfect for people that enjoy beautiful sights, and outdoor fun. My personal favorite room of the house is the master bedroom, the moutain views you get in this room are just amazing! The master bath is perfect as well hosting a large tub, and a full size shower, and yes a WALK IN closet, big enough to make any girls heart sing. There's plenty of attractions ranging from minutes to just over an hour away. There are Plenty of shopping and dining options in the area. This home is also located near three area ski resorts; Catamount, Butternut, and Bosque. In the summer months I know Catamount has an adventure course, plenty of areas for hiking and biking, tons of nearby streams for fishing (be sure to have a fishing license), even lush woods that would be great for hunting deer, and turkey. My only complaints when at this home are that I need to leave! The owners do a great job presenting the home and are very responsive to their guests. I hope anyone that stays here enjoys it as much as I do, I cannot wait until my next stay!
