  • Perfect in every way

    "My husband and I and our four sons wanted some real family time before half of the kids jetted off to college. We explored a number of properties in western Connecticut. The innkeeper for the Amselhaus was incredibly friendly and communicative from the very start and we felt welcome before we even walked in the door. Once there, we felt instantly at home. I can honestly say I have never stepped into a vacation rental and felt as instantly at home and comfortable. We stayed in the north house which was perfect for our family. There were fresh cookies for all of us, coffee for the making in the morning, all the kitchen items one would need as well as a book of information about where we could eat out and activities we could take part in in the area. We sat on the porch and watched the river, the kids played croquet and "chilled out" in the living room watching old Sponge Bob episodes in the evening. (We don't have cable TV at home so this was a treat for them....even the older ones.) Every part of the trip was made special by the accommodations. And the review written about the comfortable beds were right on. We slept in absolute comfort. We are all looking forward to coming back again and my husband and I are entertaining the idea of an anniversary trip for just the two of us. There are many great activities to take part in including Kent Falls down the road and a mining museum. There are restaurants and even some that deliver to the Amselhaus. If you are looking for a comfortable place to come with family or just for a couple, I can not rate this place more enthusiastically. My only fear is as word gets around about this gem, we wont be able to book it."

  • Comfortable and laid back in a beautiful location

    "First, it's important to note that Kim was the most attentive VRBO/Homeaway host I've ever had. She checked in with us to be sure we'd arrived okay, she checked in to make sure everything was all set, and she responded promptly when we had a question. She's great! The house is similarly great. We were three women and our three (8-10 month old) babies, so we were a handful. The house was perfect, with a semi-open plan, large spaces, and not a lot for the little guys to hurt themselves on. The beds were incredibly comfortable, especially with the cool breezes coming in the windows. The kitchen was spacious and allowed us to pull together group meals even with all the kids crawling around our legs. Everything matched the listing exactly and we weren't met with any unpleasant surprises. (One pleasant surprise -- there's a piano in the semi-finished basement!) We especially loved the outdoor space -- the wraparound porch and the expansive lawn -- and how close we were to great hiking (Bash Bish Falls & the Iron Works were beautiful and easy even when carrying the extra twenty pounds of kid) and the charm of Great Barrington. All told, loved our stay."
