Fabulous Home and Property!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful two-week stay in New Marlborough at this lovely home. My husband and I were there the entire time, and we had our adult children visiting us, as well as several close friends. The house was perfect place for a ‘family and friends’ gathering. It’s big, comfortable and has every amenity. The kitchen is huge, completely stocked with everything you could need and with a lovely area for breakfasts. The bedrooms are all comfortable and inviting. This historic house has fascinating nooks and crannies and is stocked with more books than you can imagine.

Our favorite area was the two connecting porches (one screened in and one open) overlooking the large lawn and gardens. It was the perfect place to sit for hours, talking and laughing with friends and relaxing, both with morning coffee and evening wine.

The pool is a another great space for swimming and lounging. Our dog was beyond delighted to roam on the acreage and roll in the grass. The New Marlborough area has a famous Inn and restaurant right down the road, as well as a delicious ‘farm to table’ restaurant at Gedney Farms-both within walking distance. Great Barrington, Tanglewood and other desirable locations are just a drive away. We couldn’t have been happier with the house, the land, the pool and the location.

Finally, the owners were incredibly more helpful, attentive, and generous. They responded to every question and concern, and provided great information on activities in the area. Getting to know them a little through email was an added and unexpected delight. We highly recommend this home to everyone and look forward to another stay there in the near future.

wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 had a wonderful time over the July 4th weekend. The house and barn were both very well maintained and had real character. The pool was sparkling and the grounds were beautifully groomed. The house was very well stocked with everything we needed, and the kitchen was a dream to cook in. We appreciated the modern amenities of a large satellite HDTV and wireless internet access, as well as the old fashioned charm of an older house.

We hope to come back again very soon!

A Terrific Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of six adults and three small children were very comfortable in this house. We used the Murphy bed in the library and it worked out well. Adjoining that room is a beautiful spa bathroom. We did not use the Jacuzzi because the water from the jets was rusty. The second floor is as described in the offering.

There is quite a range of eating options and we utilized all of them - eat in kitchen, traditional dining room where we ate by candlelight, two porch locations - one screened and one not, and a table by the pool.

The pool and grounds were very well maintained and the house was clean.All my contacts with the family were pleasant and prompt. When I inquired about a gate for the stairs, they purchased a new one and had it sent to the house before our arrival.

We had great weather for our week and used the pool every day. It was completely fenced with childproof gates. We got our own kiddie pool and awning for additional shade.

There is an upscale restaurant right down the road and they have a moderately priced pris fixe dinner midweek. My daughter and son in law said the food was excellent. We also had massages at a spa nearby. It was a beautiful facility and quite delightful.

One caveat - my son in law got a hefty speeding ticket in the area. A GPS is quite helpful on back roads and watch the speed limits.
