Charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our 4 days here very much. Very clean and comfortable, luxurious bed, ample bathroom, relaxing living room. Yes, the kitchen is tight, but I've stayed in larger vacation homes that were not nearly as well supplied. Very convenient spot - for getting a paper in the morning, for the restaurants in Great Barrington, for all the great events going on in the Berkshires, and, especially convenient for us, as a starting point for bike rides. Lois couldn't have been more gracious. Even her dog and cat are friendly!

Felt like we were in a cozy treehouse!

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying 4 nights at this cozy, charming apartment and did not want to leave. This spot feels secluded but is close to anything needed, a perfect combination. Lovely home and grounds.

Fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful spot for a few days of R+R! The apartment was warm and cozy, clean and felt like home- without the to do list. For a last minute get-away, I decided I wanted a place that was private and quaint where I could completely relax and this totally worked! Lois was wonderful, warm and welcoming! Highly reccomend this comfortable, centrally located slice of Great Barrington!

An Ideal Setting

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were very pleased at our weeks stay at this vacation rental. The apartment is very close to the center of Great Barrington, yet it is secluded and gives the feeling of being in a rural setting. We found the apartment to be comftorable and clean with the bonus of a huge patio to relax during the day. Our landloard (Lois) was very accomodating in providing extra chairs and lightiing fixtures. We look forward to visiting once again.

Pest Control Problem

  • 1 of 5
While it is true that the rental unit is located near town and is set back from the road (hence the one star), my visit was extremely unpleasant. I woke up to find animal droppings covering the sink and stovetop. The owner has not responded to me since I left so I cannot report that the pest control problem has been addressed.
