Nice place..comfy and spacious.

  • 3 of 5

Disappointed we didnt find the dock. Thought the lake was closer.

Wifi was good but reception if you use verizon wasn't

I think an explanation of where to place the trash.

Advance notice on the lack of linens and towels would be nice.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that our guests didn't reach out to us with any questions upon arrival. Our phone number is posted on the fridge and they have our email. Towels were on the shelves in one bathroom and in a basket in the other bathroom. Sheets were in the drawers in each bedroom. The dock is a five minute walk from the house and the directions were on the lakehouse info pages that I emailed. Cell service is spotty in the Berkshires and Verizon is not good in rural areas. AT&T cell service is best in Monterey. Most importantly, please communicate any problems because we are MORE than happy to help our guests. We are always available by phone, email or text.

Thanksgiving Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 8 enjoyed a 4 day Thanksgiving weekend at the house and there was plenty of room for all of us. The house was very clean upon arrival and there was plenty of firewood available if you wanted to use the wood burning stove. The beds were very comfortable and the house was well stocked with all of the necessities.

The owners were very helpful in giving us a run down on places to go and what to see while visiting and made check-in and check-out simple. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and would most definitely rent here again.

Annual Fall Mem

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend and the place held the six of us perfectly.

Truly appreciated the kitchen and living-dining room space for gathering and group conversations.

Liked that it was separated from the TV room where the sports fans could be by themselves.

We ended up hiking several sections of the Appalachian trail on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 24 miles total. Feeling pretty lame today!

Perfect House for Familes, amazing Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days and had a wonderful time! We have kids ages 2-10 and they all loved it. The house was perfect, well kept with everything you would need to cook great meals. BBQ was great. Awesome TV room with comfy couches - perfect for the kids. And the best part was the lake - the water was beautiful and clear. We went kayaking, fishing (all the kids caught) and swimming off the private dock. The town of Great Barrington is very close and is adorable with great ice cream! I couldn't recommend this place more for a relaxing and fun vacation. Mary Beth was very accommodating and the whole rental process could not have been easier. Can't wait to book again!

Great family get-together

  • 4 of 5

Home is spacious for family get-together.Clean and comfortable.Missed the napkins ,paper towels and dish towels but we managed.I expected a lake view but was disappointed.The most important thing to know is in regard to the walk down to dock.It is very steep.Could be a bit slippery on stones and steps.This is an access,not privately owned but I should be noted that this walkway is not suitable to elderly or handicapped.The steep walk up is very difficult.I have a knee that gives me some trouble and I had a rough time. The lake is very beautiful and very quiet.It's a great place to relax.We enjoyed the kayaks and canoe.The water was warmer than our pool back home.The kids enjoyed swimming out to the raft.It is safe for children.There is a nearby beach as an alternative swimming spot.It should be noted that there is none or poor cell service in the whole area.If you like to eat breakfast out ,go to the Roadside Cafe. The food is awesome.Try the pancakes.General Store also serves breakfast but menu is very limited and food not great.Great Barrington is 15 minutes away. Lots to do there.
