About Joe

I owned a media company, television and film up until a few years ago. I've returned to the fine arts pursuing painting as well as working part time as web developer.

Why Joe chose Hillsdale

This area is full of accomplished people with privacy respected. It is an unspoiled natural wonderland with brooks, streams, river, shy wildlife, all sorts of birds, with a tranquil sound of the stream emanating to the bedrooms.

The house offers full practical amenities including washer dryer, internet and TV.

It's a perfect winter getaway as well with skiing at Catamount minutes away.

What makes this house unique

You will be in a cultural mecca for the performing and visual arts along with major American historical sites. Plenty of attractions and activities for the entire family. Skiing at Catamount or Butternut minutes away.

Excellent, well equipped, secluded house, quiet and perfect

  • 5 of 5
Perfect quiet getaway, totally secluded but close to all amenities. The house is very well equipped, with great kitchen, outdoor equipment with grill, lounge chairs, floats for the pond etc. The house was super clean with clean linens in all the bedrooms and bathrooms. Plenty of space indoors and outdoors. Overall excellent value (we have rented many houses before and this house tops them all...). Joe gave us a detailed tour of the house, committed and friendly. We would love to go back.

Beautiful, Private, and Luxurious

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five (me, my husband, 2 girls, 1 dog) drove up for a long weekend away from NYC and we had such an incredible time. The home is on a perfect piece of land- secluded but easy to get to places, pretty views from every window (and there are many)- and well kept so you can walk around and enjoy the outdoors. What really surprised us was how well-maintained and large the house was on the inside. The pictures do not do the house justice. The art is exceptional, rooms are big, the furniture is comfortable, the kitchen is stocked with supplies, etc. We were met with the owner upon arrival and got a full run through of the fireplace, garage, etc. It was brief, friendly, and informative. We also had a great time exploring the local sites. We took our two girls to the Amish Village and the Edith Wharton Mansion and spent time exploring and eating out in Great Barrington. We had a couple of minor questions about the home and the owner was easy to get in touch. We highly recommend this house! It was our best VRBO experience so far.

Owner's Response: That's great Sara, some of the older artwork is by my wife's aunt and uncle from the WPA during the depression, greatly missed people but their art survives.

amazing house

  • 5 of 5
the house is amazing, nice bedrooms, a lot of game, really quiet house
The pond is small and the water is cold, but really fun for small kid

We enjoy our stay very much.

Maybe, if the owner could add some curtains for the bedroom, that would be perfect for the one who love darker bedroom to sleep.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you all had a good time and that your child enjoyed the stream and pond as I've yet to see a kid not enjoying it.

Your comment about total darkness is very noteworthy. While it's a different demeanor, moon, stars, early morning glimpses of animals visiting the pond, I can understand a guest wishing to, or perhaps needing to, choose total darkness. Not sure how or when this can be done, but it's on my radar.

an amazing retreat from the city!!!

  • 5 of 5
This Thanksgiving holiday my partner myself and two couples had the pleasure of visiting Joe's cabin and I can honestly say that it was one of the best Thanksgiving holiday's that I can remember having. I practically didn't leave the cabin for three straight days and I was completely content lounging around, reading and feeding the fire in the wood burning stove. When we did venture out to Great Barrington we had a lovely time walking around and visiting craft stores. And this doesn't happen often, but the property itself actually looks nicer than the photographs. Not only would I recommend visiting to anyone, but we all hope to visit again at our earliest convenience! Thanks Joe for sharing your wonderful home away from home with us!

Amazing Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5
My 5 friends and I (and my dog) spent a truly amazing Thanksgiving vacation at the house. Because of the snow we spent most of the days inside cooking and laughing and watching movies by the fire. The house was completely set up with everything we needed and exceeded every expectation.
Beautiful landscapes and a quick drive to downtown Great Barington.

Totally Amazing house, hope to stay again soon!
