We were 3 adult family members traveling together. We were looking for something other than a hotel suite with a king bed and a sofa bed to meet our needs. This apartment allowed each of us to have her/his own bed and bedroom as well as a sitting room where we could spend time together. It is part of a historic old house -- quaint, but cozy, clean, quiet and convenient. WiFi was a much appreciated perk. Jane and her staff were very friendly and helpful.

Wish we had planned more time to enjoy the beautifully cared for grounds around the house, but we were kept busy all week taking in the interesting museums, theaters, restaurants and historical sites in the area.

Thanks Jane.

What is not to love about this place? The location is perfect, just a short walk into town. The apartment is very clean and cozy. 3 bedrooms up, downstairs kitchen, bath, living room and study. The kitchen is especially well equipped for cooking. Jane, the owner, is completely hospitable and gracious. The grounds are lovely. A great place to retreat, write, think, sightsee. A short jaunt from Kripalu. I'm already going back next year.

We spent a week in this beautiful house. In fact it is an independent house which is part of a bigger house. The location is excellent for traveling the Berkshires and for activities there.
The house is fully and generously equipped, you have only to buy fresh supplies.
It feels home with a lot of beautiful hand picked furniture, pictures, lamps and flower pots.
There is a large size pool but it was too cold for it.
I will return there and warmly recommend the place to my friends.
