After searching for many different places and types of vacations we were fortunate enough to see this listing on HomeAway. We spent a week with our 3 young kids (ages 7 to 11) and had an outstanding vacation. The house is very roomy and has very much a "home" feeling. You can tell that it's a home that the owners take pride in and is not just a vacation location for the owners.
The house was precisely as advertised and was perfect for our week. The bedrooms were very nice, the kitchen and living room were very accommodating and overall the house was very comfortable and contained everything needed - just bring your own food. Their is a screened in porch that is just beautiful for sitting in the evening, reading, eating, playing games, etc., and even more beautiful when watching a sunrise while in it. The property is stunning and is built into the side of hillside or small mountain. It is very quiet and out of the way, which is exactly what we wanted. You do not hear anything, except for the occasional car passing by and you cannot see any neighbors, so you truly feel as if you are way out in the woods - which is exactly what you are.
By far the favorite part for the family (particularly the kids) was the pool. A beautiful pool built into the hill with a large deck surrounding it. We spent most of our time in the pool or the deck just enjoying the quiet. Plenty of seating on the deck and includes 6 chaise lounges. My kids spent 10-12 hours a day in the pool and absolutely loved it. Their is a BBQ outside on the deck as well, which is in very good condition and we used it often.
Stu & Jo Ann, the owners, were a pleasure to deal with and finalizing everything was very straightforward. You could tell that they very much wanted us to enjoy using their house, and we did. We are planning to rent the house in 2013 for a week again.
I would highly recommend this house if you are looking for beautiful place to stay, quiet surrounds (which we very much do), enjoy taking advantage of a very large pool that overlooks the mountains.

We recently stayed in this lovely home in Austerlitz. We really enjoyed the tastefully decorated rooms and the indoor-outdoor flowing floorplan. Every room has a door leading to the wrap around porch and the beautiful views. The bedrooms were well appointed and homey.The pool area has gorgeous views of the mountains, with no other homes in the line of vision. It gives a real feeling of being "away" with just you and the pool and nature. The screen porch feels like a treehouse and was a beautiful place to sit. There was plenty for us to do in the area (in addition to hanging out by the pool). We specifically recommend Bash Bish Falls and the Taconic State Park which are not far away.
The owners were very welcoming and helpful and we appreciate their sharing their home with us.
This is definitely a place we would return to and recommend.
I've rented a few homes and visited lots of friends in the Berkshires and rarely have I come across a house as well-appointed and beautifully maintained as this one in Austerlitz. We've rented this sunlit country home a few times and each visit flew by. The hillside grounds, surrounded by forest, have an expansive feel with a pool perfect for laps, moonlight swims or gatherings. There's an insulated screened-in porch with windows all around, that's my favorite room. With a big glass table for dining on BBQ straight from the outdoor grill, it's a perfect place to catch the killer sunsets. The views from the decks along the house and around the pool are breathtaking--sky, mountains and farmland. As secluded as it feels, the house is wonderfully situated. It's a short drive to golf, tennis, and the incredible restaurants and shops of Great Barrington. Tanglewood is a mere 1/2 hour away. Let's just say the location makes it easy to satisfy cravings for high culture or low, or none at all. Golf and tennis are nearby and there's great biking just down the long driveway along the lightly travelled road. The owners are businesslike but easy and accommodating. With an impeccable, understated esthetic, they designed the spacious rooms for absolute comfort in a bucolic, protected spot. With ample room for kids and guests, it's a dream house I wish I'd found first.
In the Taconic Mountains on the border of Massachusetts and New York State, this is a gorgeous setting year round. Located near Tanglewood, Great Barrington, Chatham, Spencertwon, Hillsdale, Lenox, and Stockbridge, this area provides fine dining, golf, tennis, boating, great museums, theater, film, hiking, biking, etc. in an absolutely beautiful setting. Our house is surrounded by forest and farmland and has a 40 foot long pool great for laps, and sunbathing
