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!

Williamstown weekend

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect weekend getaway for our group -- a small gang of Williams alumni. Close to campus, yet still at a comfortable remove, the house was an ideal retreat. It's perfectly maintained, with very nice furnishings and comfy beds. Through the entire rental process, Marie was efficient, responsive and very pleasant. Absolutely no complaints. We'll certainly keep this home in mind for future Williamstown gatherings!

Beautiful Farmhouse with Character and Comfort

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the most wonderful winter getaway in this lovely Williamstown abode. The house is so comfortable and cozy, perfectly balancing its rustic character and New England charm with all the modern amenities and comforts. The house is impeccably maintained and very well-equipped, with lots of cozy seating, big comfortable beds, beautifully remodeled bathrooms, and warm lighting. The house is also very conveniently and centrally located, just a few blocks from Williams College campus and a short drive to Mass MoCa, yet it maintains its private and secluded feel. We especially enjoyed gathering in the dining room and watching the winter dusk descend upon the small forest patch outside, just one of the many beautiful and timeless moments this house made possible. Thank you, Marie! We cannot wait to return.

Wonderful House in a wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of our family were totally satisfied with the comfort of the house. The two main bedrooms are well sized and the "kids" room attached to the larger bedroom (one must walk through it) worked well for a 5 and 7 yr.old. The house has two huge, very recently remodeled bathrooms - one upstairs with a claw-foot tub and shower, one on the first floor with an excellent shower and large enough for a brand new stacked washer and dryer as well.. The kitchen is up to date, with plenty of room to mill around, but for eating we needed to sit around the dining room table which was large enough to accommodate us all (6) and probably 2 more. The living/dining room area is large and very well appointed - lots of very comfortable seating/reading options. We thought the photos didn't do the house justice - it's very charming.

And, finally, location. It's a five minute walk to the campus and the Spring and Water Street Shops. The Clark is a half mile away, with Mass Moca, a 15 minute drive.

Excellent Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The home was a lovely location for our Thanksgiving holiday. We found everything in excellent condition and the house was very well maintained. The location was also ideal for anyone looking to enjoy downtown Williamstown, which is a 10 minute walk from the house. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and cozy space, and plan to return for another winter vacation.

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.
