Spacious and private

  • 5 of 5

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 home in a secluded location with fantastic mountain views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the long Presidents weekend for skiing. The home is huge with multiple living areas with fantastic sunrise views. We loved the living room off the kitchen with the fireplace and the kids spent most of the time we weren't skiing in the game room basement. The kitchen is a tad small for the size of the house, yet functional. Overall we had a great weekend and would rent here again.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is huge and very comfortable. It had plenty of room for our family reunion. The kids loved the playroom. Everything was clean and in good shape. At the end of the weekend, everyone voted to come back again next year !

This house was so perfect. It's very big with lots of rooms and the location is great!! We were able to give everyone their own room -- some spent a day skiing some went to Hudson for the day. Great NYE trip.

Great Lcoation,Large house,Spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

We had a reunion of 14 adults as our annual Fall-Color meet for 2 days in Oct 2016. The house is so huge that we didn't realize we were that many people and also it is beautifully decorated making us feel like our home. The house had about everything from outdoor grill to fireplace to Piano to game room to fitness gears etc. We ended up spending most of our time in the house. The view of the mountains from the house is just spectacular. It looked really pretty with the leaves changing their color daily. The owner of the house was very responsive to all our needs and was very much flexible to accomodate our needs. I would definitely recommend this place and would love to visit this house again in future. Hence 5 stars for this home on behalf of me and my friends.
