About Vicki Lavertu

My name is Vicki...I live in Easthampton, MA only 1 hour away from the property. Western, MA has been our home for 23 years. Love the area.

Vicki Lavertu purchased this house in 2013

Why Vicki Lavertu chose Otis

Recently purchased this home and take pride in decorating and furnishing this home for ourselves and others to enjoy. I furnished this home in a modern feel with clean lines and simplicity. The kitchen is totally stock with new appliances, dishes and kitchenwares. You will love to cook here!!! I know I do!

What makes this house unique

The two outdoor areas.....the front porch and screened in patio in the back of the home are quite relaxing. They are my favorite spots to enjoy reading, listening to music, or having a cocktail. Being in an outside setting allows all of nature come alive such as birds singing and the warmth of the sun.

Relaxing weekend in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

Vicki's home was exactly as advertised. The open layout was perfect for cooking AND spending time with family. The kitchen had everything we needed, including some of the consumable supplies we had neglected to bring from home. Furnishings were simple and very comfortable, with lots of nice extras....we loved the massage chair!

Everything was neat and clean when we arrived.

With 5 family member sharing the house, there was plenty of room for us to all hang out together and also have space for ourselves.

My only regret was that we couldn't spend more time there!

Nice, comfortable home with a great flow

  • 4 of 5

This home works equally well for a couple or for sharing with friends and family. It is spacious and has a lovely flow. All the bedrooms are comfortable. The master bedroom is exceptionally large and the screened in porch a pure delight. The home is in a rustic setting (a rooster crows nearby, birds nest on the porch, bunnies hide under the car, the road is unpaved and rather bumpy). It is clean, tidy and tastefully decorated, the lighting is pleasing, and the homeowner attentive. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances but is not well suited for significant meal preparation. Other things to consider when selecting this spot: Cell phone service is virtually non-existent at the house and quite spotty overall in the immediate area; wifi service is slow. Finally, it should be noted that although this is a nice home, the other homes on the road are not up to its standards, not by a long stretch.

Very spacious and Secluded Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this home! We were up as a vendor in an art show & my parents came with us! We had plenty of room in this home and Vicki the owner was so accommodating. Any questions or needs we had she was able to help us! Vicki has all you would need in the home including the kitchen and a brand new gas grill as well as lots of entertainment options with TV, Board Games, Pool Table, & Air Hockey and a hair dryer in the master bathroom! We really enjoyed our mornings and night time talks in the sunroom with the breeze blowing through! Thank you Vicki for making us feel right at home!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet getaway to relaxed. We found it here nestled away among trees giving you a nice secluded feeling. The home was very comfortable and well taken care of.

You will appreciate the kitchen lots of counter space to cook together.

We enjoyed relaxing on the front porch for morning tea and the screened in back porch in the evening.

Great location as you were not far away to explore other places in the Berkshires, Tangle woods and Stockbridge are not that far.

Vicki is a great host, she has thought of everything to make you stay comfortable.

Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

I would recommend this home to rent

Beautiful location with all the comforts of home!

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for three friends who were coming from multiple cities to reunite after working together one summer in the Berkshires 30 years ago. It is very spacious and we could have easily accommodated twice as many people. Unlike many VRBO rentals, the kitchen is well-outfitted if you like to cook, which we did. The front and screened in back porches are perfect places to enjoy coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the afternoon. And the living areas have comfortable and plentiful seating.

Vicki is attentive and helpful. We had an issue getting the grill to work the first night, so she and her husband came the next day with a new grill to ensure we had no problem grilling for the rest of the week. Now that is service!!

The house sits off a short, but bumpy gravel road not far from the center of Otis. It is a good location if you want to go to Jacob's Pillow, Lee, Lenox or Great Barrington. If you're planning to spend a lot of time in North County, just build in ample travel time. We went to MASS MOCA one day and it was an hour's drive. The area is so beautiful, however, that driving along the curvy country roads dotted with lakes and ponds is a fun event in-and-of itself.

The only inconvenience is that the wifi is spotty -- a factor of the country location. Otherwise, this is a gem of a home that I would recommend highly.
