People LOVE our home: Testimonial- One of the most truly relaxing vacations we've ever had. Every year my 2 sister's, brother and spouses take a fall vacation. I found this great house to accomadate all our needs. I contacted the owner and the rest is history. Joe was great. Willing to rent to us on such short notice. We spoke several times and emailed almost daily. When we arrived Joe was there to meet all of us! The house was most inviting and comfortable. I loved that there were several rooms that you could go to to have your space. Plenty of room for everyone. Whether the ladies were in the huge diningroom having coffee or the men were watching tv. We all felt right at home. The house was most inviting and comfortable. Can't wait to go back!!
Shopping: Berkshire Mall is approx 15 miles away which includes several large retailers, Best Buy, Sears a multi plex movie theater, and restaurants. The Lee Outlets are approx 12 miles away and contain outlets for all major stores including Gap, Calvin Klein, Brooks Brothers etc. In addition specialty shops can be found in the town of Lenox, West Stockbridge, Stockbridge, Great Barrington, Pittsfied and Williamstown.
Never had to leave the house: Testimonial- The house had so many distinct rooms that whomever I was talking to felt as if we had the whole house to ourselves. Lot's of rooms, plently of different places to relax and eat and beautiful gardens in both front and back. We have been renting homes in many different areas with our family now, for over 15 years, and this house felt the most like home than anywhere else we've stayed. The home is not available most time of the year but whatever season we want to get away, we'll always check to see if this house is available.
Broadway producer. Long time NYC residents. Moved to the Berkshires in 2001 for a change of life style. Temporarily living in Bronxville, NY where my wife is attending graduate school. This house is our primary residence, so eveything we have accumulated remains...... including hundreds of books, pictures and personal items. Does not in any way resemble a rental proprty and has the most comfortable beds in the world. For more information on me personally you can go to www.joecorcoran.info
We bought this home as a weekend house in 2001, and loved the area so much we moved our family from NYC, in 2007, to live in a painting all year round. Perfect location and accessible to all areas of the Berkshires. Close to schools and an easy drive to NYC.
Location, charm, accessibility to restaurants, shopping, the movies etc. Our house has the most fantastic screened in porch I have ever seen. We spend all of our time out there, including most of our meals. Extremely rich curtural scene with many artists, theater and it's own film festival. As a New Yorker all my life we normally would travel to the Long Island beaches for vacations. Though no ocean, the Berkshires remains an unassuming jewel, which is why we love it.
