Well-appointed house with great views!

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautifully laid out and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We had three young kids with us who loved walking around and exploring the house. The location of the house is central to a lot of local attractions. Lisa was very responsive and helpful from our initial outreach through our time up at the house. We had a minor issue with the wi-fi our last day at the house and Lisa went out of her way to help us fix it and was extremely apologetic. It was overall a very comfortable stay and we would definitely look to rent it again if we return to the area!

We vacationed there for Thanksgiving, it was very relaxing. The kids had a great time. The house is comfortable and it has everything you need. Lisa has a lot of patience and is very understanding. It is a house that has breathtaking views any time of the year. I can't wait to go there again.

Relaxation and Fun in the Berkshires!

  • 5 of 5
Eventhough the trees have lost their leaves, it does not take away from the beautiful scenery sourrounding this sprawling, beautifully appointed home.
There were a few warm-ish days and I had my morining coffee on the screened porch. Peaceful, birds chirping, you get the picture. We all had our own spotless bathrooms and the beds were cozy and clean! (I am kind of a clean freak!)
Love the downtown area for Thai food especially and beautiful shops. People are friendly and they like out-of towners. There was plenty of space in the house for us to find a quiet place to read and nap and then get together for a great meal. Well-equipped kitchen and big dining room table. I am planning a return visit in the spring so I can see the flowers blooming in the garden. Believe me, when you go up the driveway, and you walk into the beautiful entryway, you'll know this is the place to vacation, be with friends and family and re-charge your battery.

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.
