  • Lakehouse Retreat

    "Home was comfortable with 6 adults and 2 young kids. Upstairs master bedroom was air conditioned, balance of house is not - but even on hottest days, not really a problem. Downstairs always cool at night and didn't seem musty. Great fishing off the dock and access to lake is as easy as it gets. Ample gear for canoeing and kayaking. A bit in the woods - but mosquitoes did not seem to be a problem. Dry weather probably. Many options to sit and enjoy the wonderful view. Beach nearby for kid swimming and house stocked with kid friendly items. Owners were very responsive throughout the process. Traveling to Great Barrington and Lee easy. House was well stocked and clean. Kitchen easy to navigate. Would certainly return."

  • Very comfortable house

    "We had a great week at Maria's. The house was in a very secluded location but within minutes of all the conveniences of Great Barrington. It was very spacious and clean and completely quiet. Maria met me at the house and showed me around. She left some fruit and wine, too. I didn't cook any meals there but I could have because the kitchen was fully equipped. The living room area is open and very comfortable. I'd definitely go back."

  • Peaceful

    "We spent a week here with our son, daughter-in-law and twin 7-year old grandsons. The house is clean, well cared-for and comfortable. Lots of windows with good ventilation and natural light. The front porch has a nice roof overhang that makes it a great place for al fresco meals or games or hanging out in wet weather. Beds are comfy. Having 2 bathrooms is a plus with that many people in the house. Bring your own body wash and shampoo. Kitchen is in good shape, with a fridge, range, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and Mr. Coffee that takes ground coffee. (Don't expect to use your K-cups.) Washer and dryer in the basement. There is a TV and a satellite dish, but there was no signal while we were there. As a backup, there are a ton of DVDs for movies. Lake Garfield is beautiful. Not very deep. Has a fair amount of bottom vegetation - but pretty good fishing and wonderful for boating - kayaks to powerboats. In front of this property, the lake is shallow and doesn't lend itself to diving or jumping off the dock. But the dock is a great place to sit and enjoy morning coffee. There are two canoes and, I think, 3 kayaks. (We brought our own kayaks.) There's also a small aluminum rowboat that would be a good fishing platform. There is a nice 4 burner gas grill and a firepit. Make sure to pick up dry firewood at the Monterey General Store downtown on the way to the place. DO NOT BRING FIREWOOD FROM OUT OF STATE. Massachusetts does not want you to accidentally import the invasive Emerald Ash Borer with firewood you bring from home! I'm told AT&T phones work OK here. We have Verizon. Service at 1 bar is sporadic - and forget about 4G ... BUT isn't that why you go on vacation? to get AWAY from the darned thing?"

  • Great week!

    "What an amazing week we had on lake Garfield! The house was as described. The dock and lake were just spectacular. Having canoes, kayaks and paddle boards all available made it all the better. We have kids, and the house was stocked with lots of toys they could play with, movies to watch on a rainy day, and generally everything we needed. Like a previous reviewer, an appliance broke for our stay (the washing machine), and the owners handled it as well as possibly getting the machine replaced quickly. The area is also truly spectacular. Small farms, fresh vegetables and the great Monterey General Store. Hope we can make it back soon!"
