We LOVED this house, and a snowstorm during our stay only made it more magical! The owner really has thought about the renter in SO many ways: the kitchen is awesome; there are ample surfaces for belongings in the bedrooms and bathrooms (we've rented homes where we lived out of our suitcases and cosmetic bags, only having a surface big enough for a toothbrush to place our things, but when renting this house, it was evident that the owner thought this through); the view is amazing (!!), and there is a high-end grill and lovely deck; multiple shoe trays were a huge help in the snow; the animals are a wonderful addition/entertainment; the game room and TV room provide something for everyone, and although we enjoyed them both, we spent most of the time either on the yellow couch or in the kitchen, marveling at the breathtaking view and sunsets! The owner's kindness regarding us renting with 2 larger dogs is super appreciated; it is a gift when someone with such a special property allows them! We all loved Shelburne Falls too-- we made it there 3 or 4 times and had great food and fun (McCusker's Market was amazing)! We can't say enough about our wonderful visit! The owner, Karen was super easy and professional to work with and also super responsive regarding any questions (and even though out of town during our stay, arranged anything we needed). The property was very clean and well-maintained. It is rural so expect to use your car for supplies and outings, but the property provides much entertainment (including hiking) without leaving. We would recommend this property to a friend or relative. Thanks Karen!
