Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was outfitted with the basics. We spent all our time on the deck and the lake. In the end the paddleboat didn't work, but we were still able to fish from it. Owners were helpful and offered fishing advice, and some proven lures. The Berkshires are scenic and this place was just what we were looking for. It was a great Labor Day weekend for our family.

Owner's Response: hello Ben , we are so happy you and your family enjoyed your stay at the lake, it was Franks pleasure to give you a few tips, and the lure to use ,we are thrilled you and your son had a great time catching fish, about the paddle boat in the end, hopefully the kayaks made up for that. if you stay in the area again we would love to have you stay with us again, thank you frank and theresa

First VRBO Experience

  • 4 of 5

The place was decent. A bit musty as most waterfront properties are but nothing bad. The place is comfortable and convenient to Jacobs Pillow which was our main reason for going. It rained a lot so we didn't get much pond time but it was nice when we did. Paddle boat was broken but the kayaks were good.

Bathroom could use some updating and the crank windows were a bit problematic and 2 were locked shut so no cross ventilation in the BRs. The bed was comfy enough.

The deck is nice and we enjoyed it when it was not raining.

No internet or cable was a nice change of pace for us.

All in all, much nicer than a hotel at about the same price. We'd do it again.

Charming, rustic getaway

  • 4 of 5

This charming cabin on a pretty lake had what we needed for a weekend in nature. The large deck was a highlight. Be warned that there is no wifi and if you have T-mobile, no phone service.
