Cozy and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Only exception to an enjoyable stay were the lightning- cabin is very dark and the lack of photos to reveal the narrow staircase - in consideration for older individuals or those who may be handicapped .

Almost new log cabin very conveniently located

  • 4 of 5

We came to this cabin looking specifically for a place to enjoy all the theatre, music, dance and dining the area offers while still being able to bring our two small dogs. To that end, this is a great place to stay. Everything in the cabin feels new, the kitchen, the furniture, the a/c (which we really needed). There are a couple of caveats to note. In the cabin itself, there is a small bedroom/office on the ground floor. And though the only closets are on the second floor, we found that we could only use the downstairs area because indoor access to the upstairs is via very steep spiral stairs that kind of float upwards with no handrails. Staying up there would have made late night access to the downstairs (i.e. The Bathroom) too scary for us. A young family with kids would've found the challenge to be fun, I'm sure. Also, the property, although nice and private, is on a very busy road. Though we could've driven elsewhere to walk the dogs, I made small walks on the road with them and questioned how safe that idea was. Still in all, I would recommend staying here as it is a charming cabin with easy access to all the Berkshire attractions.

Cute, Cozy Weekened Trip with Good Friends

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a terrific visit at this property! We loved the cabin's ambiance, the cute pond in the backyard and the tire swing. There was plenty of room for our five person group, and it was great that the cabin was equipped with kitchen appliances, towels and sheets. The location was perfectly nestled between several towns in the Berkshires, being particularly close to Great Barrington, making our destinations easily accessible! We would all definitely recommend :)

Had a great time. The house/cabin is very cozy and nice.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. It is very much a "log cabin" feel and the pictures are an accurate representation of the house. It is very cozy. As the listing states it has been recently remodeled and the kitchen and bath are new and nice. I found everything I needed in the kitchen to cook breakfast everyday and eat in pick up meals several nights.

The property is close to the road which is rather busy and well used so there is some street noise during early morning rush hour travel which was not a problem but something I didn't anticipate from the photos. There is a farm next door which has a few horses and is very picturesque. We brought our two small dogs and the photos do not show the stairwell which is really neat but also a bit harrowing. It is clearly original to the house and is a few logs ascending upwards in a spiral but with no hand rail or risers so the dogs had to be carefully carrying upstairs where we slept. There is the option of using the outside stairs that go to a deck off the second floor and through a sliding glass door which is another option. Again this wasn't really a big problem or even a negative but it is not shown in the photos and is something to be aware of. Definitely not for the mobility challenged however.

Overall we were very pleased with the house and it was accurately represented by the listing. Relaxing, comfortable, clean, safe, cozy. Nice location, out of town enough to be a rural setting but just a short few minute drive to Great Barrington. We would definitely return.

Perfect!!

Absolutely perfect! Everything we would have needed for our Father's Day weekend was at Lorie's adorable cabin. Great location near downtown Grear Barrington, the Norman Rockwell Museum and our two visits to Tanglewood. Hope to return soon! Thank you Lorie!

Notes:
Our cabin is in a perfect central location to enjoy all that Berkshire county has to offer. Most local attractions are within a ten mile radius of the cabin. With local markets, big grocery store,department store, and great restaurants are only about 3-5 miles away. But yet the cabin creates an atmosphere of a cozy little place, with a private back yard, to just get away from it all. Berkshire County is a vacation destination for all four seasons.. Come and explore!!
