Imagine deciding to go on a picnic and knowing that you can sit by a great watering hole or you can listen to the Boston symphony at nearby Tanglewood in Lenox. If biking is more up your alley, the terrain offers routes for experienced & novice riders alike. Monument Mountain offers a terrific hike up the mountain, go fishing, or walk down a great trail to Bish Bash Falls to see an amazing waterfall and swim in the cool, clean water. There are two major summer theaters that offer shows for children and for adults, with meet the artist gatherings after some of the shows-If you prefer.
Our family spent Christmas at this wonderful house. It is a perfect place to create memories in the Berkshires. Close to Butternut and Bish Bash Falls. We hiked to the falls and it was wonderful. The house is comfy and cozy well equipped with everything you need for a great stay. The cherrry floors in the bedrooms are just beautiful. There is a gourmet kitchen with everything from top of the line pots and pans to every spice under the sun!! The owners even made our stay extra special by leaving a nice bottle of wine on the counter for us. How nice is that? We would highly reccommend this home. You will not want to leave on the day of your departure. We wish we were still there!! Thanks Edy and Chris. It was a 10 plus!!! We hope to come back soon!!
Our family of 5 enjoys the Berkshires for our holiday vacation. Our stay in Sheffield was very convenient to all the locations we enjoy: Hunter Mountain for skiing (an hour & 20 minutes drive), dining & movies in Great Barrington, shopping at the outlets in Lee and visiting Albany (the ice skating rink is great & it's free!) Edy & Chris' house was a great choice for us: ample space for this NYC family to spread out, super kitchen to prepare meals (chock full of supplies which is fantastic!). Edy is a pleasure and we thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days stay!!
Everyone had a great time on the trip and we loved staying in your beautiful house. By the end of the trip we were already planning another visit!
This house is spacious and attractive both inside and out. It is well-equipped with a diverse collection of books, games, condiments, and appliances. It free of clutter, so that you can put your stuff down easily, move around without worrying about upsetting something from a coffee table, and store your clothes in the dressers. The garden is large, with a lawn big enough to play a game of soccer or toss a frisbee. The fireplace and living room are exceptionally suitable for those of us who like to burn wood and talk. The dining room seats a family of six. The beds are comfortable, the linens are clean, and the house smells of fresh. The owner and her staff are a pleasure to deal with, so that we feel welcome while we are there. My friends and I have stayed here twice, and we fully intend to stay here again.
We had a lovely stay in the Berkshires over the long Columbus Day weekend. The area surrounding this rental is beautiful, the weather was perfect, and we really liked the small town of Great Barrington, which is about 5-10 minutes drive from the house. The house was adequate, and probably good value for the price in this popular area, but could use some updating in decor and furnishings and a thorough cleaning. The kitchen is nice and well stocked, and the living room was comfortable. Our children enjoyed the games and toys available for young guests to use. The yard and exterior could do with some maintenance and the house is nearly directly on State Route 7, the main thoroughfare in the Berkshires, so traffic noise was a minor issue. Overall, we had a very good experience and both couples and both children were well accomodated for in the house, but we will look to stay elsewhere in future visits to this area.
This was my first rental through Home Away and it won't be my last!
Every aspect was a pleasure, from communications with Edy prior to the visit to the sad day when we had to say farewell to friends, family and depart.
House was everything it was advertised to be and in perfect condition with beds made and even included a welcoming bottle of wine. Home had everything we needed including a brand new Weber grill.
We probably did not travel about as much as many and for the most part could not follow up on the interesting activities that Edy suggested. Our family included a 6 month old baby, so friends and extended family were invited to stop by for visits.
During a rainy day we drove to the Clark Museum in Williamstown for a return visit. Very much enjoyed a morning at the Norman Rockwell Museum. Sheffield Pottery displays the work of many local artists and is worth a visit as well.
Sheffield, surrounded by quality antique shops, is close enough to the bustle of Great Barrington, but quiet and relaxing.
I highly recommend this property.
