We were in search of a large house that could accommodate many families for our cousins club weekend and the Berkshire Country Estate was the perfect find! Plenty of room for families to have their own space but also convene together for dining and game playing. We were all very comfortable in this beautiful, charming home and the owners were a pleasure to deal with and very welcoming. The house is well equipped with cooking utensils and a grill so it was easy to eat in as a family. Also, the game room was a big plus for the kids (they loved the air hockey and pin ball machine) and the outside swing set and basketball hoop were a plus and we all enjoyed ping pong in the barn. We even had a family kick ball game on the large yard. I know there are plenty of sightseeing opportunities close to this property but the house was so great, we never left for the weekend! Thank you for a memorable weekend and we look forward to returning:)
A large group of us had a wonderful stay at the Berkshire Country Estate. From owner, house, region and even staff, everything was perfect:
1. We are a group of college friends from 20 years ago and our families. We started with 5 families (15 people) but ended 6 families (18 people). I was afraid we had to find another property. Owner Laurie was so gracious and accommodating that our large group was finally able to enjoy the beautiful place we were looking forward to. She and I had numerous phone and email exchanges to pan out details. I was truly impressed with her professionism as well as flexibility.
2. While owner unable to receive us due to other engagement, she made sure all details informed to us upon our arrival, even arranged her staff to give us a tour to the gigantic house (very much needed. :) ). After our arrival, she even emailed me right back when we needed directions and information regarding surrounding area
3. Needless to say, the house is gigantic :) . Owner was very considerate and arranged extra beds and towels for our large group. Inside of the house has everything to entertain adults and kids. Kitchen has utensils to cook and feed an army. We, a group of 18 only used a portion of them.:) Outside of the house is just as impressive. First day we arrived in afternoon, we couldn't wait and explored the beautiful foliage, trails and woods right at the property
4. Plus the region is as beautiful as it can be in Autumn. OOMS Conservation Area is 2 miles from the house. Its paradise setting made time freeze. Albany and Tanglewood are not far away for those in the group who had never been in the area. Wish we had more time to explore more.
some of us in the group hadn't seen each other since college, so the reunion was imaginably memorable. The owner, property and region added nothing but positive experience to the exciting occasion. It was a perfect time for all of us. Would love to go back when similar occasions rise again. Highly recommended. Thank you, Laurie.
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.
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.
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.
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.
