LOVELY RETREAT FROM THE CITY

  • 4 of 5
We have rented this property twice in recent years. It is a lovely, well maintained, spacious home. We love the fireplace and the master suite. The only bummer is that there is now AT&T cell service. I loved that everyone had to be off the grid - together! Not many places left to get away from technology. Certainly no fault of Karl or the property of course. Karl is also always up to date on the cultural goings-on nearby. It's fun to have a local's knowledge of where to hear great live music.

RUSTIC CHARM WITH MODERN AMENITIES AND COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
We had such a good time at this house! It’s clean and very comfortable, with a good kitchen and bathroom equipment, a nice Tempur-Pedic bed in the master bedroom (you can even heat the mattress during cold nights, which is a wonder if you have rheumatism like me), an efficient wood-stove in the living-room and even a piano for music lovers. There is a lovely lawn behind the house where both our cat and dog had fun all day long, as well as a balcony on the second floor where I loved sipping my morning tea in the morning sun.
Most of all, it’s located right in the middle of the woods and very close to Lake Garfield, so we completely disconnected from urban stress during the week we stayed there, while also enjoying gourmet shopping at Monterey General Store or having nice little rides in the Berkshires. The owner, Karl, is very professional and hospitable. He had us promise we would come back in the Winter, and it will be hard not to.

NICE WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice family weekend with our only regret being that we couldn't stay longer. Karl quickly greeted us, showed us around, and during the course of our stay left his famous rasberries and maple syrup. We enjoyed hiking, swimming, boating and fishing on our own secluded section of Lake Garfield. We did have an unexpected problem in the house but Karl was there within minutes to fix the issue. A nice relaxing, fun weekend was had by all!

AWESOME.

  • 5 of 5
Karl was exceptionally professional and made every effort to make our time in Monterey comfortable and enjoyable. He responded promptly to e-mails and phone calls and was very nice to meet. My family went to go hiking in the Berkshires and only stayed for 1 night. We wish we had had more time to stay longer! The house was clean, spacious and very relaxing. We enjoyed the nice amenities (cool wood stove, screened porch) and hiking around the property. The house comfortably slept all 5 of us. Would highly recommend for those who want to disconnect and enjoy some nature.

FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We recently took our kids to Hill Cottage. We had the best time. We got to make nice homecooked meals every night, and go sledding and to walks everyday. Karl the owner is a great guy he came down and gave us a tour even taking us upstairs although he had recently gotten hip surgury. He was also kind enough to share his wonderful dog Jessie with my family which my kids loved. The scenery was beautiful especially after the snow we got. We will be coming here again and again. It was an amazing vacation and we could not to happier

CHRISTMAS GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
Took the wife and kids for a little getaway for Christmas. The property has a woodburning stove - my favorite feature of the house and the reason I chose it!!

My wife loved the kitchen....it was huge - we live in a small apartment in Manhattan so this was her favorite feature of the house. It had every accessory she needed to make a perfect Christmas dinner :)

And the kids got their own bedroom....which was their favorite feature!!

The owner, Karl, was a really great guy. I felt bad that it snowed so much and he had to plow with a really bad hip - he's going in or surgery and we wish him a speedy recovery. Thanks Karl :)
