Perfect stay in lovely home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our Westie, Zipper, spent 5 wonderful weeks in this lovely home, coming from Georgia to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We were charmed by the many exquisite architectural features in this house; one has only to look closely at the pictures, which are an accurate representation. The kitchen and bathrooms are small by today's standards, but are true to size for a home almost 100 years old! The home was very well maintained, and I would guess it had been a beloved home of a happy family. A couple of things it may be helpful for a large group to know..... All 4 bedrooms are upstairs, and guests staying in the two with twin beds must pass through an adjacent bedroom to access the bathroom. It wasn't an issue for the two of us as we only used 1 of the bedrooms, but a large group of non-family members would want to be aware of this layout. A small claw foot bathtub was added to the half bathroom downstairs, making it a full bath, immediately prior to our arrival, and it was perfect for our needs. In fact, everything about this house was perfect! The owners were delightful to work with as well--responsive, kind, and considerate. There is a river on the property running parallel to the driveway, where we enjoyed coffee every morning. While the house is only about 5 minutes from downtown Great Barrington, the setting is so private that you feel as if you are in the country. The house isn't air-conditioned, and we were a little concerned that we might be trading the heat and humidity of a Georgia summer for one in Massachusetts, but that was a needless worry. Abutting a hillside, the house remained cool throughout our 5 weeks there -- even upstairs (and there are fans in every bedroom). Not only was the location perfect for its proximity to downtown GB, it was also ideal for short day trips to Connecticut (we especially enjoyed Kent), western New York, and the entire Berkshires area. GB itself, as well as 90 minutes in any direction, promises a variety of culturally rich offerings including concerts, plays, etc. And, you must visit the Berkshire Mountain Bakery in Housatonic (about 10 minutes from the house) for the amazing variety of breads and home-made pizzas. The "bread with dark chocolate" was worth every pound gained from our (MY) almost daily indulgence. And, if you're traveling with a dog, you'll want to visit Tina at Ben's Dotter Pet Store and Robin at Wash & Wag for grooming. A delightful stay all around!

Great Home Base for Ski Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Short drive to the slopes, this quaint, nicely detailed home offers the nostalgic coziness characteristic of the gentle Berkshires. Gracious hosts and plenty of snow made our stay pleasantly memorable. After ski, many delicious food choices: Berkshire Mountain Bakery; Old Inn in Marlborough for dinner; Guido's Fresh Market; Taft Farms just down the road. After a long day this is the perfect place to curl up and read a good book. There is a cell signal which is a luxury in the Berkshires. Thank you for your hospitality!
