This was the perfect summer getaway for our family. The house was spacious, yet cozy and comfortably accommodated three couples and an infant. Each couple had their own room and bathroom, and enough privacy (even the one in the loft space). The living space was great, kitchen had everything we needed and the pool was clean, well-maintained and perfect for the sunny days. We spent almost every meal on the large deck, dining outdoors and grilling. The view from this house, located atop a hill, was fantastic. You could see for miles across farmlands towards the mountains. The location of the house was also great. It felt secluded and private. It was a short or moderate drive to cute towns like Hudson and Great Barrington, farms/farmers markets, grocery stores, shops, hikes, etc. Also, it was just under a three hour drive from NYC. Alan was a lovely host, checking in with us periodically to ensure we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying our vacation. Our family could not have asked for a better experience for our summer getaway, and we will certainly be returning again!
