We stayed here for a weekend while dropping our son off at college. Our family has used MANY vacation rentals over the years, and I have to say that this was the cleanest place we've ever stayed. The home is immaculate, which is always a great start. The owners were super-easy to work with and very responsive. An extremely well-stocked kitchen - tons of dishes and silverware. If you were hosting a large group, you'd certainly have more than enough flatware and dishes to put on quite a meal! The living room and and dining area or open and extremely light. Great space in the eat-in kitchen, as well. Really, really well laid out for family/group use. The deck and the screened porch are fabulous! The kitchen, living room, etc., are all on the second floor which makes great use of the wonderful views. Three bedrooms on the second floor, plus a good-sized and newly updated family bathroom with double sinks. On the main floor there is a large family room area with its own tv and a fold-out couch. A great "bonus" space if you want to provide some space between children and adults. Full-sized washer and dryer on main floor - super for not dragging wet/sandy/muddy clothes through the whole house. Main floor also has a bathroom with a shower. Furnishings are well-chosen and comfortable but family friendly. A few notes...the neighbors were really nice. We were here with my parents, 74 and 85. I think they would have preferred fewer stairs, but the upstairs views made it worth the climb. If their mobility was limited, this house would have been too hard for them. Be careful pulling out of the driveway - I did some damage to the rear end of our car while backing up. (Duh.) It is hard to find this place in the dark, so go slowly. I must confess that the pillows on the beds were sub-par, but we travel with our own, so not a tragedy. In fact, I think the pillows are our only negative for the whole house! We would certainly stay here again and I would recommend this space to a friend if they were looking for a rental in the area.
We had a great time in the forests of Otis, a perfect quiet retreat. Lots of room at the house for games and relaxing.
This home was the perfect size, layout, and location for our family vacation.
My husband and I spent the weekend and the place is beautiful. Very roomy, clean and comfortable. The location is very private and quiet for a nice relaxing weekend. It is also close enough to take in some of the sites in the nearby towns. Great place to take in foliage season. Kevin & Anne
house was clean and there are lot of rooms to spread out.
the kitchen was well equipped.
the town of otis itself doesn't have too much offerings. one has to drive out to great barrington to find a decent grocery store.
We had a great stay here in Otis. Most thoroughly enjoyed the upstairs fireplace, well-appointed kitchen, and extra space downstairs. There is more room than appears in pictures! Clean, neat; excellent and extra sheets and towels and blankets. Couldn't have asked for anything more in the house.
