. . . and that was before we even left the home.
Wonderful three level home (you're renting a home, not a house.) to use as a base for exploring the Berkshires or as a destination in itself. Immaculate, spacious property in a beautiful setting on a lake. The open layout of the house is great and kids have the best bedroom (with a bunk bed) upstairs with a loft like balcony. A place away for them and still in earshot for you.
Plenty of entertainment in the basement for young and old (limited channels on the tv so bring DVD's for the kids. . . but thats not why you are there anyway.) and a serene setting on the main level to enjoy the view any time of year. After arriving at night, the first thing I did upon waking and walking to the great room, was run back and get my camera. Don't let the 30 min travel to skiing keep you away in the winter, it is well worth it. The rest of the seasons sell themselves.
Well appointed kitchen, plenty of housewares to take care of everyone, comfy beds, enough bathrooms and the owners belongings are minimal and out of the way.
The only thing that keeps this from being a slam dunk, especially in the winter, is no fire place. Almost didn't choose this property because of it, but it would have been my loss.
The owners are very amicable, the transactions went smoothly and they had plenty of helpful hints and tips for the home and the area.
I'm trying to figure out now, when the next time I could get back there.
Don't hesitate to choose this property.
