Guestbook comments from the manager
My friends and I stayed here for my 30th birthday, and the house was lovely! It had everything we needed to cook full meals, and also was quite spacious. Even though there was snow on the ground we made use of some of the hiking trails and walked near the lake. The fire place was probably my favorite aspect of the house, and made it perfect for a winter retreat. We are even considering coming back during the summer!

EVERYTHING WE COULD HAVE HOPED FOR!

  • 5 of 5
We chose Perry's home to hold our tiny little wedding over a long weekend. For just us and four of our closest friends, this was the perfect winter destination. We caught over a foot and a half of fresh snow and held our ceremonies during the beginning of the blizzard in front of a huge rock on the slope down to and overlooking the lake; it was absolutely breathtaking. The house itself is well-equipped and terribly comfortable. The kitchen has everything and the living room is amazing; the big U-couch and huge square coffee table became the center of our stay. The fireplace is wonderful and there was plenty of wood. The beds and bathrooms are super nice. I know it lists only 3 bedrooms, but this house would easily accommodate 10 people as advertised. All-in-all, I can't say enough about the place. Also, Perry made himself very much available in advance of our stay. He provided heaps of information and some great recommendations, and always responded quickly to our questions. If you're considering this house, just pull the trigger; you're going to love it!

REALLY SPECIAL RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home on incredible land. Cozy, well equipped retreat surrounded by state land with myriad trails for hiking and running. A stunning pond outlined by grand old trees, beavers, deer, birds abound is set in the home's backyard, visible by most windows. So nice!

RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed such a blissful and relaxing weekend at this house in the Berkshires... There was more than enough of space for my husband and me, his cousin, another couple, and our dog, and the house had everything we needed on the first cold weekend in October — firewood, blankets, decks of cards, DVD's, plus all sorts of pots and pans (and even fresh chard from the garden!) for making stew. The location is incredible; directly behind the house is a huge pond with a walking trail all the way around it. Our dog has never been so happy to be anywhere, and wanted to do several laps around the pond every day. We also discovered a great running trail nearby (left out of the house, then a left on Savoy Road) along with other local hikes suggested by the helpful owners. An all-out perfect weekend retreat!

LOVELY WEEKEND AWAY FROM THE BUZZ

  • 5 of 5
We had the most lovely time in a most wonderful spot of the work! The house is everything we needed and more. Beautiful location right near the lake which you can enjoy right when you wake up (at least that is your view in some bedrooms). The garden is lovely and we were allowed to harvest what was ripe (beet root leaves - yum). Plenty of space for all of us! The two bathrooms are accessible from two sides which is great when the house is full with people. It was so nice for us and our extended family to all sit around the dinner table, near the fireplace and later at the campfire... The house manager was very pleasant to deal with and gave us plenty of information on how to make the post of our stay: best lakes, best hikes, best local shopping etc. We would definitely love to come back!!

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
Great place to relax! Comfortable with fun kitchen to cook in, beautiful country walks outside the door, great books, movies and games and a flexible and easy to access host. Can't wait to return! We loved that they accepted dogs as well!

GREAT HOUSE, EVERYONE WE DEALT WITH WAS FRIENDLY - COULD HAVE BEEN CLEANER

  • 4 of 5
My family and I (8 adults + a dog) had a great weekend at the house. It is a great house with plenty of room and plenty of amenities, including an excellent fireplace and plenty of wood! The grounds are excellent, with paths through a lush woods down to the lake. The beds were comfortable and the showers both has good water pressure.

The one thing that was not great was the general cleanliness. The floors did not appear to have been mopped or vacuumed very recently, and there were random dirty tissues in various places, plus other things like that. Not entirely disgusting, but it could have very easily been better taken care of, and it would have made our stay A LOT more pleasant. Great bargain, though, considering everything else, so we really feel like it all worked out.

Owner's Response: We are truly very sorry that this has been the experience of our guests. Reality is that our cleaning staff was not doing the job our guests appreciate and have thus been fired and replaced. We sent 2 different cleaners on 2 different days during their stay to show them we are serious about cleanliness.

We take great pride in our service and amenities, but most likely we have no idea about a problem, such as a mopping and vacuuming, unless someone called to report it. Clearly, we would have done anything to make this group happy had we known about this before their stay. And trust me, there is no end to the list of creative solutions we come up with.
