Breathtaking Escape!

  • 5 of 5
Not only was the view from the house beautiful, but the house itself is so "home-y" and comfortable. The drive from the house to anywhere is very enjoyable because it is so scenic. Lisa was very wonderful to plan with and made sure I was comfortable in her house. There were absolutely no problems! I had a great weekend up in Alford.

We Loved It Here!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house in a great area. It is large and extremely comfortable to hang out in. The house sits across from a large field, which is nice to look at and helps make the house quiet and private. It is well-equipped and clean. I found the fireplace a big plus on a chilly fall evening. The house is very convenient to Great Barrington and all the wonderful places in the Berkshires. And Lisa, the owner, is a pleasure to deal with. Whether for a weekend, a week or a month, this is just a wonderful and relaxing place.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
This spacious, well appointed, warm and comfortable home overlooking a meadow was just the perfect spot for my family and my brother's family to spend a fun-filled fall weekend. There was tons to do in the surrounding area but we all looked forward to the end of the day when we would come back to the house, cook a nice meal, light a fire and just relax! We thank Lisa for making everything go so smoothy! We would definitely like to come back, maybe in the winter for skiing.

This place is really wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a long weekend and really loved the house and the location. The house is beautifully furnished, really well outfitted for cooking or whatever and very comfortable, with open views and lots of land/privacy. The house was super clean too, which means a lot to me. Since it was pretty cold out, we spent a fair amount of time inside, but with so much space and tons of big windows and light it was a perfect place to hang out in. The area is so pretty with lots of nice towns, great drives and skiing close by. We plan to come back in warm weather to enjoy the beauty there and would definitely want to stay here again.

Lovely, peaceful retreat but minutes from town

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a few days and it was even better than the photos! Pristine condition, with lovely views. We really felt like we had gotten away, with all the modern conveniences, but it is a short drive from anywhere you'd want to go in the Berkshires -- restaurants, movies, etc. Best of all worlds. Loved it!
