We had a very nice stay at the house in Hancock. It was
very relaxing and quiet. Your house is very comfortable
and everything works! Walking in the area was pleasan
t. Our dog and I met the pig one morning (the dog and
the cat, too)! I just wanted to let you know how much we
enjoyed our week there.
We had the best time as a family during our stay in the Berkshires. The house had all the necessary supplies to accommodate a family of 5. We made dinner and breakfast in. The family room was a cozy place where we sat by the fire and enjoy many, many games of Uno. (There were tons of games and movies on the shelves.) Even our dog had a great time exploring the property behind the house and walks to the library. A must do for us next year!
