What a beautiful house to have our small family reunion in recently. Being away from the hustle-bustle of any town made our visit quiet, intimate and rejuvenating.
The house itself is very open and comfortable. The living room with several seating areas provided lots of space for visiting and reading. The media room was cozy and inviting (we worked on a puzzle there).Both rooms were adjacent to the kitchen which made for great flow and visiting even while participating in different activities. This house in incredibly appointed with beautiful dishes, great cooking utensils and everything you might need to run a household - even on vacation!
The grounds are spectacular! While we were there in August, the flowers were splendid. We were encouraged by the owner to pick some and bring them inside which we did. In the front of the house,we enjoyed playing croquet on the spacious lawn and loved swimming in the heated pool.
In the back, we had a number of meals on the large deck which overlooked a sizable lawn including a frog pond and also a forested area. We saw a deer and some wild turkeys.
Within a half hour's drive, we went to Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow and some summer theater- lots to do within a short drive. The large , super grocery store was also about 25 minutes away.
Our family loved the house inside and out - and we would highly recommend it.
