I do ask that you help me keep the rental rate as low as possible by washing the sheets and towels. This saves a tremendous about of time in turning over the house. Much thanks!!

Private and Convenient with Beauty all Around

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely and clean with beautiful updates on the lower level and absolutely beautiful, private grounds very close to the village center. Kitchen is well equipped with most everything you need to cook in (except the groceries) and within walking or quick driving distance from a variety of enjoyable restaurants and coffee shops. You can relax in the outdoor gazebo or on the deck facing the pond, go for a kayak or canoe ride, enjoy the fire pit, or visit the area's amazing shops, museums, orchards, wineries, gardens, and trails. There are stairs to the bedroom level that might be challenging for some. Very hard to leave this place behind.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational group of 5 adults, a toddler and an infant had an enjoyable stay in July! The kitchen is extremely well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots, gadgets and even some basic cooking needs (oil, condiments, etc.). The 3 year old enjoyed pretending the sliding window between the kitchen and sun room was a McDonald's drive-through.

The 2 kayaks and canoe were used the first two days for quick trips down the pond - life jackets were available and the dock makes for an easy launch. We never saw anyone else on the pond - it's not one you would swim in. The gazebo was a pleasant place to eat in when we used the grill one of the nights. The location was an easy drive to both Tanglewood and Jacob's Pillow. A small grocery store and a couple of restaurants are within a very short walking distance (skip the Art Park for now - not much to see).

A geese family seems to regularly visit the property in the evenings, so watch where you step! Also, be aware that there are always dozens of bees around the lavender surrounding the doors. We ignored them and they didn't bother us. Street parking in front of the house fits 4-5 cars in parallel. We never figured out how to access the cable channels but streaming on our own devices via wifi worked fine. We brought our own sheets to avoid the last minute sheet washing. Thanks for a great stay, Chris!

Very nice house in great location.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, well equipped, and well maintained house in great location in West Stockbridge. Walk to small town center, easy drive to music at Tanglewood, theatre, hiking trails, and everything else in the Berkshires. Beautiful private and peaceful grounds on water (Shaker Mill Pond) with gardens and backyard deck. Excellent family getaway with adult children. Owner was responsive and very easy to deal with.

Hated to Leave

  • 5 of 5

Cocktails in the evening after Tanglewood with friends in Chris's new garden with the fountain bubbling in the background on day one, and Tanglewood in the evening on day 6 with my 5 year old granddaughter. A perfect week. Practically roll out of bed in the morning into Six Depot Cafe for their delicious breakfast, although you can make your own, everything but the food is in the house, and I mean everything . There's also upscale Rouge Restaurant and Truk Express for Vietnamese food, both a 5 minute walk to the small town center. Relaxing in the gazebo, kayaking on the lake, the list goes on and on..

I hesitate to recommend this property, because if it is available next year, I want it to be available WHEN I WANT IT.
