paul ehrlich purchased this House in 1996
Why paul ehrlich chose Hillsdale
Very private property with great views at the end of a cul de sac. With views of Catamount. Very close to Tanglewood and ski mountains. perfect layout for large family gatherings with many separate living spaces. And bedrooms in separate parts of the home providing maximum privacy for all.
What makes this House unique
House resides in a private community on a private road with all luxury homes. You will never see a car as we are at the end of a cul de sac. Yet we are close to all the attractions that the Berkshires has to offer.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Perfect for large family trips
If you are planning a family reunion or similar affair with multiple generations, this is the perfect place. There are separate rooms/wings so each family group can have its own quarters yet gather for joint activities.
There is a long gravel driveway up to the house that can get a bit tricky in winter. That happened to our group on one of our days there, but the owner sent someone to sand as soon as we called him.
Suitable for a family get together
House was well furnished and located away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close to places of interests..Rooms were clean and spacious. However, the two rooms in the basement are not very conducive for people with allergies. The owner was flexible and cooperative. The initial price quotation by VRBO did not include Additional guest fees and housekeeping.
I appreciate the kinds words but I do need to correct something. All fees were in the original quotation. The two fees in question were clear in the standard VRBO/HomeAway format and in plain sight. No small print.
Basement room by the game room is an extra 6th bedroom. I do not even advertise it. Its totally finished, dry and comfortable. Its a walkout with 2 French Doors.
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.
