Rest and Relaxation
My family spend the Columbus Day weekend enjoying the views of the fall foliage and could not have picked a better home for our stay. The home was impeccably clean with all amenities included as described. The heating system plus the gas fireplace kept us warm and cozy. The additional mother-in-law apartment is a few feet across the main house where my wife and I slept and found it convenient and roomy. It gave us an extra level of privacy. The bathrooms worked great with plenty of hot water for the family members staying in the main house (no issues of hot water in the apartment either). I was able to contact Christine when we arrived and she was certainly hospitable and provided plenty of information. For example, we were planning on heading to an outlet near by, but she suggested an alternative plan, since where we live there is an abundance of malls/outlets. As a result, we were able to head to a nearby orchard and had a great day. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would plan on returning.
Sat - grabbed a meal at The Southfield Store and headed to The Incredible Naumkeag Pumpkin Show
Sun - Drove to the summit of Mount Greylock to view the foliage and dinner at Donaji
Mon - Hilltop Orchards and dinner at Salmon Run Fish House. My side adventure, 30 miles of cycling at sunrise through Sheffield and Ashley falls (Ride with GPS - Southfield-Ashley Falls Loop 27)
We loved this charming house in the Berkshires
My son got married this past weekend @ Camp Wawa Segowea in Southfield, Ma. I found this house on Vrbo & stayed here with my husband, my mother & father, my sister & her husband & my other sister...so 7 adults. There were 4 bedrooms, so more than enough rooms. The house was in the perfect location to the wedding venue, only about 2 miles, which was so convenient. It also was across the street from the Southfield Store, which was convenient for our several meals (breakfast, lunch & coffee) & such a bonus...we didn't have to cook. The house had a separate small house, in which my husband & I stayed in & there were 3 bathrooms in all, which was perfect for all of us to get ready for all the festivities of the wedding. The house was extremely clean. The check in & check out was very easy & convenient. I emailed with several questions before our trip & got quick responses. They even let us check in earlier, which was great so that we didn't have to come back...we just unpacked & went to the rehersal pre-dinner festivities @ the camp. The house was even nicer than the pictures on-line. I highly recommend this property.
Main house is lovely and well appointed. Nice kitchen that was well stocked and dining area. Bedrooms and baths were nice. Nice deck and fire pit. We stayed in the “guest house” which we thought was attached but was actually across a parking area. This was the only king bed available. Furnishings and kitchen and bath were rustic and oldish compared to main house and there was a strong odor from all the wood paneling. Wi-fi in guest house was very spotty in spite of a repeater. Very nice having Southfield Store across the street.
A Charmer in the Berkshires!
The house is a charmer with several fine amenities and the added bonus of an "in-law" house that my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed while our guests stayed in the main house. Great kitchen and BBQ which we took full advantage of and the landlords could not have been nicer. There's also the fabulous cafe directly across the street with homemade everything and always delicious! The rental only loses a star for the lack of air-conditioning in the main house on a very hot weekend. I blame myself for not alerting the landlords, but didn't want to bother them and kept thinking it would improve and it was only four nights so...
Otherwise, highly recommended!
Our family of 5 spent an autumn weekend in this lovely home. It has a modern updated interior. We especially enjoyed the fire pit.
It was nice to meet you Allen and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again.
Gary and Christine
Get house, great hosts
We rented this house for 2 nights for a weekend wedding. Communication was great. Christine and Gary responded quickly and effectively to my many questions. Check in was a breeze. The house is actually nicer than the photos. We had 6 family members with us and the 3 rooms in the main house easily accommodated all of us. The kitchen is super modern and well designed and equipped. Dining room was very comfortable . The town is small but near lots of others including New Marlborough and Great Barrington and Lake Buel. Since it was a busy weekend we also used the apartment just behind the main house for naps and getting away from it all when we needed. Great apartment with plenty of room and a very comfy bed. Lots of room in that kitchen and in the hot weather the apartment was actually quite comfortable even with out AC which is provided. (maybe being on a slab cooled it down?). Lots of room to park our 4 cars.
The main house is on a small lightly travelled main Street which is very quiet, especially at night. Lovely little deck area in the back with a nice table and bbq. There's a grassy area of the deck that's quite lovely. We set up a badminton set and played away before the wedding. It's walking distance to a great little breakfast coffee lunch spot with really fabulous desserts. Such a treat!!
Gary and Christine were very flexible re arrival and departure times, which we really appreciated. Christine met one of us to help orient us on the first day. Nice touch.
Actually there were a lot of nice touches all over including first aid kits, plenty of amenities like nice shampoos etc.pitchers of water in the fridge when we arrived, etc.
Minor things which didn't really affect us were: One of the shower doors was damaged( a note said it would be fixed shortly) so we couldn't use that one but we did use the other bathroom showers without a problem. On that super hot weekend the AC in the main house ran a bit warm but was still comfortable enough to beat the elements.
I'd highly recommend this house and would definitely return if we should be in the area again. BTW, we had guests visit and they were all mightily impressed. Enough said!!
