What a delight...

I had not seen Maya's Garden House prior to our family's arrival, because we were being treated by a family member. What a true delight, the second we arrived. The home was so comfortable, clean, roomy and complete with virtually every amenity and "extras," from a complete, modern kitchen, frosty air conditioning, a huge supply of towels, cleaning products, etc. The decor was pretty without being pretentious, the emphasis on comfort. We felt "at home" the moment we arrived. The grounds are breathtaking. Aside from the wet-sink gas grille AND charcoal grill BBQ patio, there was an outdoor chimney, ready with a load of firewood and acres of gardens to enjoy, with seating tucked away in the nicest areas. The location is a big plus, too, with the house tucked away from the road, but an easy, short drive to shopping. We loved every minute of our time there and would gladly come back again. Maya's gardening and decorating touches made our stay a delight.

What a hidden gem! Owners Carl and Maya, who are on premises...the rental house is situated behind their home on 15 acres of beautifully landscaped property...outdid themselves. The totally renovated and remodeled barn features original structural beams in a large, open great room setting featuring two conversation pits with comfortable furniture, a totally modern kitchen with lots of room, a large dining room area/table, large screen TV and lovely decor throughout the home, pretty but not pretentious. Lots of little touches abound and it feels like a home, not a rental property. The A/C kept the entire house comfortable even when it was hot and muggy outside and they thought of everything, amenity-wise...complete kitchen, even a basket of toiletries in the master bathroom. As comfortable and spacious as the actual house was, the grounds are even more breathtaking, including a deck, a separate gas grille AND charcoal grill patio, an outdoor fireplace and everywhere you look, picturesque garden settings. Best of all, with a deposit, we were able to bring our two terriers with us, so it really felt like home. We were amazed the moment we entered the home for the first time and

Charming House in a Beautiful Setting

Our family has always loved the Berkshires, and we have spent many vacations there. But of all the places we have stayed, this is the first one we have called home.

It is charming in a warm, inviting way. The furniture is comfortable, the kitchen is spotless, and everything we needed was supplied. The gardens with stone kitchen and fireplace are beautiful.

Maybe best of all is falling asleep to the sound of the fountain, and waking up with wild turkeys in the field behind the house.

We will be back next year.

This house is not fit for rental

We arrived from England and found Maya's Garden House cold, dirty, run-down and in need of much repair. After one uncomfortable night we left and found another property. I think the owner agreed with us when we told him we were leaving and it seemed that he and his wife had not even thought of checking things before our visit. I note that the property is unavailable until late March 2010 and hope that in that time the owner will completely refurbish the house. We lost our deposit and had to find somewhere else the next day which was not a good start to our holiday.

Less than a mile from Butternut Basin Ski Resort.

The Berkshires, in addition to being beautiful, have the greatest concentration of music, theatre, dance and other cultural events in the United States. And Great Barrington is the center of it all. Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Berkshire Theatre Festival, and Shakespeare and Company are all less than 1/2 hour away, and there are restaurants, antique emporiums and lakes to swim and fish in everywhere.

Winters are also special, with lots of ski slopes, and if it's too cold, the Community Center has weight rooms, a pool and cultural activities for children and adults.
