About Dorene Beller

Artist

Retired Banker

Dorene Beller purchased this house in 2005

Why Dorene Beller chose Monterey

It has the feel of a wonderful and peaceful retreat. It reminds me of when I grew up in NYC and used to visit the country with my family--the look, the sounds, the simplicity! The house is so easy to maintain and provides a lot of privacy when my children and grandchildren visit.

What makes this house unique

JUST ADDED AIR CONDITIONING FOR THOSE HOT AND MUGGY DAYS!Access to a private tennis court within walking distance. Homeowner's Association provides a private dock for swimming and boating. Use of 2 kayaks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Believe the Pictures: A Very Special House.



We spent 5 wonderful weeks in this exceptional house. We loved the space , the well equipped kitchen, the deck for drinks in the evening, the music, the garden , the beautiful lake and the town of Monterey. All you need to do is pack and arrive. The owner left us a book with all the local attractions, restaurants, shopping etc. This is an owner who really wants you to love her home as she does. We loved the art in the house and all the warm touches that made us feel "at home". It was a joy to arrive and find the house so clean and welcoming, a bottle of wine on the dining table and the owner waiting to greet us. Every detail is taken care of. Just a note: loved all the beach chairs for concerts and evening lake sunsets. This house was meant to be filled with people...it just makes you smile.

The best house after many years of renting!

  • 4 of 5
The house was spacious, attractive, well-located, and had more and better cookware than we even have at home! There is more than ample space, making it easy and welcoming fore guests. The sheets, towels, and beach chairs were great, and there were toys, toys and more toys! The owner portrayed the house adequately, and was there to greet us with a bottle of wine and a good walk-around. The only surprise - and it was our fault, not the owner's - was that we did not realize that the master bedroom was in a loft space. Also, the private dock and kayaks were further than we anticipated. The deck was large, had wonderful sun during the day, and had good seating for outdoor meals. The public beach nearby is perfect and it is a quick ride to both Great Barrington and Lee. A good time had by all!

Perfect for Our Family

  • 5 of 5
This family friendly house was perfect for our annual vacation in the Berkshires with our kids and grandkids. The house is lovely, clean and well maintained. We have rented in the area many times and found this house especially family friendly. The house was provisioned with everything a renter could want. Doreen met us when we arrived and explained how everything in the house worked. We felt welcome and well cared for. We are looking forward to returning.

Beautiful home in an excellent vacation location

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week with family in this beautiful Berkshires home. Everything was marvelous…the home, the setting, the location…it couldn’t have been better.

Our three grandchildren under four years old loved the slide, toys and the fun games available at the house. The adults enjoyed playing tennis at the nearby private court and having a separate full bathroom for each family. There was plenty of comfortable sleeping space for the six adults and three children. The house is two minutes from a nice lake-side public beach and within 45 minutes from everything the Berkshires has to offer.

Dorene was wonderfully accommodating and a great hostess, allowing us to use the beach toys, chairs, barbeque, and other amenities at the house.

Thanks Dorene for sharing your beautiful home! We had a magnificent time and made some fantastic family memories.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. I'm so happy that you and your family enjoyed the house and the area so much. It's a long way from Salt Lake City, but it sounds like it was well worth the trip! Hope to see you all again next summer.
