GREAT BERKSHIRES EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a four-day weekend and really enjoyed the visit, and the house added to that. We arrived to find it immaculate. Good start!

The layout is very good with two-car parking that is convenient to the back door for carrying in luggage. You enter a really modern kitchen featuring a nice breakfast bar and an adjacent dining room with a great, big dining room table.

There is a sort of foyer in between there and the living room, and on front of the house a play room/3rd bedroom with fold-down futon. The downstarirs is roomy and comfortable.

The bedrooms are in the eves of the house, so on the edges they are a little short, but it didn't bother the kids at all, who had a great time playing and shared the bedroom with two twins. The master features a king bed, and while closets are out in the hallway, both bedrooms have dressers that offer more than enough storage for a temporary stay.

My wife loved the washer/dryer, and was ecstatic to return home with nothing but clean clothes. The basement was clean and neat and well lit, making the washer/dryer very accessible.

The two full bathrooms were modern and comfortable.

All in all, a very pleasing experience. As for location, I don;t think it can be beat. The house is a two-block walk from Williams College campus and downtown. We strolled - even in the cold - to a local bookstore, some restaurants, and even used the college track for a workout in the mornings.

The location is berkshire central, tucked up in the very Northwestern corner of Massachusetts, minutes from the VT and NY borders, close to some skiing, at the end of the Mohawk Trail (RT-2), and about 30 minutes from Lee's outlet shopping and Lenox's Tanglewood and other cultural sites. But, Willamstown is the place to stay. I don't think there si anywhere else in the area that allows for the same level of local, walking shopping, dining and other activities (i.e., we went to men's and women's basketball and hockey games at Williams College that weekend - all free).

Can't recommend the rental highly enough. This place is obviously the work of a very caring and skilled owner who has put in a lot of work and should take a lot of pride.

EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for three days and had a wonderful stay. The house is very conveniently located, exceptionally clean, very well stocked, and very comfortable. The advertisement pictures precisely represent the house – although the house was a bit bigger than the pictures suggested. We particularly enjoyed the using the large kitchen table, perusing the area guidebooks, and resting on the very comfortable couch, chairs, and bed. Its proximity to the College and the organic grocery store Wild Oats is fantastic! Because we are tall, we were concerned after reading online reviews that the master bedroom ceiling might not allow us to move around comfortably, but it was no problem at all – the bedroom was quite comfortable. We had absolutely no problems during our stay and found Amy (our contact) professional, efficient, and a joy to correspond with. During our stay, we enjoyed talking short trips to Pittsfield to visit Arrowhead, Melville’s house, and to Sheffield to shop for antiques. Our favorite area restaurant is Mezze, located only a few minutes away, driving. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this house to others, particularly families of 3-4, or couples on vacation. It was ideal for our travel needs and far more comfortable than staying in a motel or hotel. We loved it! Thank you!

MUSEUM WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
This home was the perfect jump off point for exploring the wonderful art museums in the area. It is only about a 10 minute drive to Mass MoCA (North Adams) and walking distance to the Clark Museum (Williamstown). Comfortable beds and the home was spotless. We loved the large, well-stocked kitchen and huge dining table.

RECENT RENTER WITH 2 SMALL KIDS

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay. The house was impeccably clean and very well appointed. For our family of four it was very comfortable and the pictures and descriptions are spot on. The fact that downtown Williamstown and Williams' campus are within walking distance is a plus. And it's close to great areas and activities including: Jiminy Peak for skiing and boarding, nearby Sheep Hill for walks, sledding and kids activities, field farm for walks and snowshoeing, cricket creek farm for produce and meats, the mass moca, the clarke, etc.... We would recommend the house and area highly. The only slight drawback is that it is on route 2, though traffic is hardly heavy and therefore noise wasn't an issue
