My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful time at this little get-away. While small, it is equipped with everything you need for a super-comfortable stay. The kitchenette has all the dishes, glasses, and pots and pans you could want; the bathroom is large and full of lovely towels; and the bed is lush and comfortable. The gentle breezes blew through the open doors and windows. It is secluded yet right close (walking distance) to wonderful shops and restaurants. There is some street noise that wafts up during the day (although you can't see cars--it's truly like being in a tree house), but the noise dissipates considerably at night. Lois is generous and welcoming. We will definitely go again!
Very nice spot for a break in the Berkshires. Great location, comfortable lodging and good service.
As the saying goes - Good Things Come in Small Packages and this is place is certainly one of those packages. Place was very clean, nicely decorated and had everything I could need for a wonderful long weekend break. High on a hill surround by trees I felt like I was sleeping in a tree house. The kitchen while small had everything I needed to make a nice dinner. The bathroom well stocked with soft plushy towels. And the bed was so comfortable I hated to get up in the morning. This is a nice retreat for an individual or a couple. The owner was very pleasant, and her pup Tessa was a sweetheart.
We enjoyed our 4 days here very much. Very clean and comfortable, luxurious bed, ample bathroom, relaxing living room. Yes, the kitchen is tight, but I've stayed in larger vacation homes that were not nearly as well supplied. Very convenient spot - for getting a paper in the morning, for the restaurants in Great Barrington, for all the great events going on in the Berkshires, and, especially convenient for us, as a starting point for bike rides. Lois couldn't have been more gracious. Even her dog and cat are friendly!
We had the pleasure of staying 4 nights at this cozy, charming apartment and did not want to leave. This spot feels secluded but is close to anything needed, a perfect combination. Lovely home and grounds.
This is an ideal location for fun and leisure in the Berkshires. The Carriage House is a charming and romantic getaway with all of the amenities of home. Attention to detail and a clean environment made our stay very enjoyable!
