Spacious and private
Beautiful house in the Berkshires, located in a private secluded area with breathtaking views. The house is clearly very loved by its owners and is very comfortable and cozy. We stayed there for 5 nights with a large group of friends and it never felt crowded. The kitchen is well equipped, the deck is very large and with views of the mountains. There is a game room in the lower level, with a ping pong table and other games. There is an upright piano which is in great condition and has a nice sound! There are several "living rooms" with multiple seating areas and TVs. The owner is very responsive and replied to emails promptly and was very accommodating. The location is hard to beat - secluded and surrounded by farms with grazing sheep and llamas, it is just a short drive from Great Barrington and other Berkshires attractions, near several ski resorts. We highly recommend this house!
Great house and property for large family gathering.
We stayed in the house while traveling for my sister’s wedding. The house was very spacious. Large enough to accommodate 9 adults and 2 toddlers. The property was beautiful with a large patio for enjoying morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. The owner was very flexible and easy to contact. He allowed us early check in to accommodate our infants napping schedule prior to wedding rehearsal. Paul even sent suggestions for nearby grocery store and checked in after we got to the house to ensure everything was in order. Overall a great experience and would rent from this owner again with no hesitation.
Wonderful House for a Large Crowd
There were 15 family members for our stay, including children. We had a wonderful time! The house was clean and accommodated everyone. Everyone loved the game room.
Good place; perfect for our extended family.
Great house that worked well for our extended family. The yard was big enough for Thanksgiving Day football; the game room was utilized by the younger kids for pool, ping pong, etc. The bedrooms worked out well for all and there was plenty of additional sleeping options (e.g. futons, sofa sleepers, etc.) that no one had a bad nights rest. It worked great for 4 related families to spend Thanksgiving together (and Great Barrington, etc. are close enough to get essentials).
Relaxing in the Berkshire Hills
We just returned from a weekend in the Berkshires, staying at the Hillsdale VRBO. The house is big and clean, with lots of room for our family to spread out. We traveled with 3 generations and everyone enjoyed themselves. Truth be told, the screened porch was the highlight of the house. There was always a cool breeze and great views of the mountains and trees. We ate, relaxed, played ping pong, went to Tanglewood and other Berkshire events. Paul was very accessible by phone and text with any questions that arose over the weekend. They have taken care to set up dehumidifiers in the basement level as it is needed--a reality of summer in the woods.
Lovely home in beautiful woods with great views
We were five adult women (all cousins) who stayed here for 3 days. We loved it. The owner (Peter) was extremely attentive and responsive. We would readily return again.
