Excellent! 4.5/5 -
(6 traveler reviews)

Charming and Cozy Country Ski House ,Great Barrington/Berkshires with Panoramic
average rating of 4.5 based on 6 reviews

Great for entertaining with kids

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything to stay comfortably and keep a house full of guests comfortable stocked with books and games, Wi-Fi, a hill and sleds for kids. Two large eating areas (one for kids, one for adults). Our kids had a slumber party and spread out in the sizeable living area with gorgeous mountain views. I rented this based on other reviews indicating it's condition...perfect for a stress free vacation with kids. Nice space but not the Ritz Carlton a more cabin/lodge type of quality which is perfect if you have young ones and don't need to stress. Our kids loved the books and games, sledding in the yard, and spreading out. And Catamount skiing is 5 minutes away, grocery & liquor store plus Stewart's within walking.Perfect Xmas present to the kids.

Family ski trip

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent house for our family ski trip. We stayed for a week with three kids.

The house was warm during a record breaking cold weekend. Super responsive heat.

Well stocked kitchen, we cooked all of our meals there.

Clean and simple.

Would definitely come back!

Perfect trip from NYC with kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 2 nights in August.

Our search criteria was 1. Not too far from NYC 2. Near lake or somewhere kids can swim 3. Nice nature 4. Reasonable price

The house definitely meets them all. It was perfect for our family. Especially kids, enjoyed the nice size swimming pool and back yard.

Richard was very responsive and helpful. Thank you again!

Quiet Getaway

  • 3 of 5

Richard's house was bigger than the pictures do justice. The huge windows made the place light up and the beautiful plants made it feel like home, much better than a hotel. We enjoyed the pool and having breakfast at the picnic table in the morning. Richard was a pleasure to do business with and was very prompt in answering any of my many questions as this was my first time renting :)

Your Skiing and NYS Berkshire Destination!

  • 4 of 5

Richard's house is a comfortable, conveniently-located home, minutes to Catamount Ski Area and a short drive from Hudson, NY and Great Barrington, MA. If you have a pooch or are up for a local walk, there's even a Rail Trail a quarter mile down the road. The home was warm, functional, and must especially be a blast during the summer with a built-in pool (and BBQ). The kitchen allowed us to cook a few really great meals and the dining room table was big enough for all of us (and a board game).

If you're looking for a simple place to lay your head while enjoying all the area has to offer, you'll be hard pressed to find a better value than this house. Thank you, Richard!

Beautiful Ski Weekend in the Berkshires!!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed Hillsdale during a long weekend of skiing in the Berkshires last year. The location of the house was great as we visited multiple ski resorts - Catamount, Ski Butternut, and Jiminy Peak - and it was less than an hour to get to all three mountains! There were lots of good restaurants and bars also located within half an hour from the house. Another nice feature of the house is the view of the mountains out of the front bay window.
