Rustic and convenient comfort

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out perfectly for our visit to Williamstown. It’s on a quiet side street within walking distance to town and the College, and services are just down the road. The space is rustic and comfortable, with wood beams and floors, in a setting with the rural feeling of the Berkshires. It has no AC, but the breeze blew through the screened windows and it was very comfortable on a summer-like day. The layout of the rooms upstairs and the two bathrooms made it very flexible for the use of our extended family of two couples and several kids.

Wonderful Find

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four looking to spend a few days welcoming the arrival of the new year in Williamstown. We couldn't have found a better place. When we arrived, it was a pitch black, frigid night in the teens, but the house was wonderfully pre-heated (thanks to the property manager's foresight) and as cozy, immaculate and charming as one could have hoped for.

Over the course of the next few days, we enjoyed sleeping late in the wonderfully comfortable beds and warm house, preparing our meals in the excellently equipped kitchen, accessing local information over the Web via the house's robust wifi, and exploring the neighborhood and nearby town on foot. Everything in the house worked perfectly. The owner Marie was a delight to work with in arranging the rental, as was the property manager in getting the house ready for us.

We'd stay again in a heartbeat!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This renovated farmhouse is cozy and inviting. The layout works really well for two couples, or a family, the kitchen is well stocked with tools and equipment, the beds are comfortable and the location is really convenient. It is just a few minutes away from Mass MOCA, hikes and the center of town.

We really enjoyed our stay and will return.

Great house in a great spot

  • 5 of 5

The house is ideally located an easy walk from Spring St. and the rest of Williamstown. It has a great backyard and is just a very cool space. Also has the most comfortable beds in the world!

This is a very special place

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. The house is charming -- decorated in "farmhouse chic" with gorgeous wood floor boards that have to be more than a foot wide. The house is neat as a pin, and the furniture, lamps, and other amenities (including a washing machine that plays tunes when the cycle is complete, a bunch of DVDs, wonderful family games, novels, maps and brochures of the area, and even a cookbook!) make the house feel like home.

There is a very nice view of a babbling river out the back windows, and a lovely side yard, equipped with grill and table and chairs. The house is 3 blocks from Williams College, yet is is on a very quiet, laid-back street with trees galore. Check-in and check-out was a snap and the house manager was very nice. As other reviewers noted, the pictures simply don't do the house justice.

We will be back, hopefully soon!

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Loved this well-maintained, bright and impeccably clean house in picturesque Williamstown! We were there for The Solid Sound Festival in North Adams (short 10 minute drive), and love everything this area has to offer - from Vermont side trips, to Mass MoCA, The SteepleCats baseball team and all the laid back charm of of Williamstown - it made for a wonderful vacation. The house is conveniently located, and very cozy - looking forward to a return visit!

The location of the house is only three blocks from the Williams College Theater, perfect for those visiting during the Williamstown Theater Festival. Less than a mile from the house is Spring Street, which has restaurants, a coffee house, movie theater, and post office. The Clark and Williams College Museums are also walking distance. Mt. Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts, is 12 miles away with easy to strenuous hiking trails and a vehicle road to the summit. The Ashuwillticook Rail Trail off Route 8 (13 mi.) is a flat, very scenic bike trail that doubles as a cross country ski route in winter; bikes can be rented at nearby Berkshire Outfitters. Jiminy Peak (14 mi.) is the closest ski resort, with a mountain coaster that is also open in summer. Fishing, boating, and a sandy beach for swimming can all be found at Grafton Lakes State Park, NY (18 mi.). Cricket Creek Farm (5.5 mi.) is fun to visit; cheeses and handmade goods can be purchased at their farm store.
