Lovely place to recharge

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came for a quiet Labor Day weekend and we enjoyed our stay throughly. The porch is great and we had all of our meals and drinks there while taking in the nature. Lots of natural lighting coming into house made us feel less guilty about staying in and doing puzzles! We walked the short way to the lake access to see the sunset -- had it been any warmer, we would've swam in the lake too. This is the second property of Marlene's we stay in and she's always a gracious host. Lovely home in a darling lake community makes for a recharged & happy city couple!

Hinsdale cottage July 7-14, 2016

  • 5 of 5

The house is cozy, rustic and well equipped, and feels almost as if it is part of the surrounding woods. Our host Marlene was friendly, helpful and very pleasant. The lake is about 1/4 mile from the house, and water craft would have to be delivered by car to the site, although use for swimming per se is walkable.

Welcoming and well equipped!

  • 4 of 5

Marlene was a wonderful hostess. The property was clean and had all of the basics we needed to relax, cook and enjoy some R&R. The space was flexible and we were able to accommodate our adult daughter with us without feeling cramped. It is centrally located to different activities and in a beautiful part of the Berkshires. We did a day trip to an orchard/winery and a visit to some historic towns in Vermont. We would recommend this property to others.

Tidy and cozy cottage in a lake community

  • 5 of 5

Marlene's cottage was the perfect base for our long weekend in the Berkshires. We were greeted with a welcome basket and a full description of the area by Marlene. The walk to the lake is a mere five minutes through a welcoming, cozy lake community. The porch is spacious, and we spent long mornings eating breakfast there, surrounded by trees and a glimpse of the lake. Hinsdale is about a half hour from Tanglewood and Pittsfield is next door. We spent a day boating and swimming in Onota Lake and would've hiked in Pittsfield's state park if our friend hadnt dropped his glasses in the lake :). Overall, an amazing location and the perfect house to enjoy the pleasures of the berkshires.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay! The deck was so peaceful. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived and had everything that we needed. Marlene was a pleasure to deal with.

Really beautiful property, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Really beautiful property, photos do not do it justice. Spotlessly clean, had some nice extras (baby high chair!). Would have preferred a larger bed instead of two small beds in the 2nd bedroom, but I imagine for larger families that works well. You can walk down to a little beach at the lake, took a nice swim out there. Definitely recommend.
