About Kathy Coyle

If we could live in our home year-round we would but we live and work at a boarding school in PA. We go up and enjoy the house and its beautiful surroundings as often as we can but we also enjoy sharing our home with others who will appreciate its beauty and simplicity.

Kathy Coyle purchased this house in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Kathy,



We can't thank you enough for sharing with us your incredible home -- the most ideal haven for any and all families! We couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect place to enjoy each other and nature ... complete with more toys and books than can even be counted!!! It was truly a pleasure from start to finish and the kids haven't stopped talking about it since we left. We hope to make it an annual adventure!



Thank you for your amazing attention to detail and thoughtfulness, for opening your home to all of us, and for introducing us to the treasure that is Monterey!



Hopefully everything was found in good order. We left a few items in the fridge and freezer that would be good for quite a while, assuming there might be more renters after us. (if we goofed there and you now just have more to throw away the next time you arrive, I sincerely apologize!) Also, the buckets, shovels, etc were brought up from the downstairs to take to the beach and left on the cutting block in the kitchen. And finally, I *hope* we got all the toys back in their proper, corresponding containers! You have inspired my sister-in-law and I to better organize our toy collections :-)



Thank you again -- to you and to your family. We all send our deepest appreciation and are already looking forward to next summer!



All my best,

Lauren

Wonderful Spot in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5
We were two families (4 adults and 3 children) and we found this home to be a perfect fit. Homey, ideal location, and outfitted for children, it was a perfect home base for a ski weekend. Kathy was incredibly accommodating with questions and concerns and I would recommend this home for anyone looking to visit the area.

Great weekend getaways

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house with some friends for a birthday. It was clean, quiet, and completely adorable. The owner was very nice and helpful and didn't make some of the crazy demands I've heard of from friends who have used VRBO. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed. The fire pit in the yard was perfect for s'mores. My group was all adults, but it's a VERY kid-friendly home--full of toys and books. I'd absolutely recommend this house to families with young kids.

One thing worth noting: There's no cell-phone reception at all, and the house doesn't show up on google maps or GPS. (Oddly enough, it does on yahoo maps.) But we all found our way there, and it was nice not to have everyone checking their phones all the time.

Owner's Response: Thank you Layla for your kind words. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the house and had a great weekend. With regard to the cell phone service, Monterey is part of a program called Wired West. Cell service should have servce soon. However, I agree with you that forced disconnection sometimes can be nice.

You are welcome to our home any time!
