Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I stayed at this wonderful house for two weeks in August 2006. The house was in a perfect location for us -- very near Great Barrington and all its great restaurants and shops -- but far enough away to feel like we were way out in the country. Our boys and Black Lab particularly loved swimming in the Green River just down the road. And I spent many afternoons on the deck reading books and listening to music, enjoying the peace and quiet. We also got in several hikes, including Ice Glen, and visited Lenox and the Shaker Village. There are so many cultural and outdoor activities nearby and the weather happened to be almost perfect the whole time we were there. It was a great escape from the heat and humidity of Washington DC. The house is charming -- lots of light, comfortable furnishings, charming decor, and best of all, an enormous, airy, open great room that has windows on all 4 sides! Dave and Louise were there for our arrival and they helped us settle in by making sure we knew how to operate the TV, stereo, etc. They made us feel very at home right away! We have some lovely memories of our weeks there, and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a Berkshire-style vacation. We hope to return someday soon.

We had a wonderful week at the Carriage House. The location is perfect. The house is very comfortable, especially the main room, and the large, well-furnished deck is terrific--we ate many meals on the deck and spent a lot of time reading there as well. The wireless internet was a nice plus! Dave clearly cares very much his renters enjoy their stay.

Lovely, rustic retreat

  • 5 of 5
The location of this house is just terrific: it sits atop a hill in a secluded, wooded setting yet it's just a short drive into the center of Great Barrington. The house itself is spacious and nicely planned, so it will easily accomodate a family. It's also interesting architecturally. The overall feel is rustic Adirondack cabin (and be prepared for a few ants at your picnic) but that makes the surprisingly gracious and expansive living room/dining room at the heart of the house all the more dramatic. We enjoyed having happy hour on the screened porch and meeting the chipmunks for coffee in the morning on the open deck. But it was the greatroom with its high ceilings, exposed beams and built-in bookshelves that really gave the house special charm -- as did the fresh flowers and wine left by our very attentive hosts! Really, I should add that the home's owners are another big plus. They're wonderful to deal with. Friendly, responsive, and extremely well-organized. Moreover, because this is a home they still use themselves they leave the house stocked with an astoundingly complete array of household goods, from cookie sheets to laundry drying racks to silver cocktail shakers (all of which we took advantage of).

excellent house

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this house for the month of July, 2013. This house is just wonderful: breath-taking views from on top of a hill, spacious rooms a charming large living room and beautiful porches. Perhaps the best thing is the graciousness of the owners, who did everything they could to make us feel welcome. They are available for any problems and create a feeling that one is visiting at a friend's

Swell place to vacation!

  • 4 of 5
For the second year, this was a perfect spot. Rustic and secluded, as described, but just a few minutes from Great Barrington, which is a delightful and busy town. The restaurant scene seems to be heating up. It's easy to take advantage of Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow and the many museums. Also nice to just sit on the porch and take advantage of the lovely home David and Louise have created.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5
We love this house--and have stayed there three times. It is set in a way that makes you feel surrounded by woods, but you are only a very short drive to shops and town. The great room is both huge and cozy--our family loves it.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at this house. The main room is beautiful and has lots of light, plenty of seating areas. We spent a lot of time on the screened porch. The location is terrific - just minutes to Great Barrington for groceries, restaurants, movies, and more. But despite being close to GB, the property still has a sense of privacy. It's the last house on a private road, which was really nice. Just a very peaceful place, and the owners were a pleasure to deal with.
