Amazing Cycling Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We thought we would take this opportunity to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Berkshire Estate. This estate has it all. Some of the highlights of the estate include; beautiful pool, separate building complete with table tennis, workout room, numerous fireplaces, beautiful bedrooms, games room with pinball, secluded location, and so many more amenities that they are impossible to list.
The entire estate is furnished with period pieces that very much add to the ambiance. The purpose for our visit to the region was primarily cycling but the Berkshire Estate is perfect for any large group looking for a pampered stay.

Perfect family Holiday get away

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful Holiday stay at the Berkshire Country Estate. The lay out of the home was spacious but cozy at the same time, making it ideal for our family activities. It was truly the perfect setting for a relaxed family centric get away. The consensus was we are already looking forward to the opportunity to return next year.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
We had an extended family group (14) with three generations stay at the house for an extra long weekend. Everyone had a great time. We played air hockey, pinball and charades inside, went walking on the trails and around the pond outside, and went to Jiminy Peak for skiing. The house was excellent, the grounds interesting and varied, and the location was nice. I highly recommend this house. Thanks Laurie.

Wonderfu family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our very large family had a wonderful vacation at this gorgeous home. The house was sparkling clean and well stocked with everything we needed. We swam in the beautiful pool, hiked the many trails and cooked lots of meals in the huge kitchen. Laurie and Mark met us at check in and made us feel at home.
There was plenty to do both at the house and in the surrounding area for everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and gladly recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely getaway.

Mid-June Family Reunion, 2012

  • 4 of 5
I, being the grandmother, took the Berkshire Country Estate House for a family reunion -- a total of 6 people since the grandsons could not join us. It was spacious and comfortable and provided us all with both private and together time. We very much enjoyed touring to the small town venues during the day and spent our evenings together either watching movies, reading, or just relaxing and talking. Usually we unwound by swimming in the lovely pool. We enjoyed both the house and the marvelous setting. Being limited in time, we didn't do as much as we would have liked, so needed more time. On the night of our arrival, our host, Mark, provided us with a catered communal birthday party (inasmuch as we are seldom together on birthdays) and it was a great way to begin our holiday together!
