Comfortable stay at a beautiful lodge

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house! The house is even better than in pictures - I found it more spacious than expected. We found many details that were well thought through: a/c + plenty of fans ensured we are comfortable, good lighting, dark blinds in all bedrooms, comfortable beds. Kitchen has everything you need to cook, there is a new Weber grill on the front deck and a beautiful new patio with a fire pit in the back. We are considering coming back in the winter!

Great cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the all wood A-frame cabin. It felt like we were in a fairy tale forest cabin. Everything we needed was there, including window air conditioners and portable fans, paper products, extra sheets and towels. We enjoyed hiking and dining in Great Barrington. The stone back patio is a gorgeous outside space.

Beautiful home and location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in this wonderful home and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The home was so clean and well maintained. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we might need. The beds were very comfortable and we were very thankful for the air conditioners in each bedroom. The brand new patio and fire pit were amazing...we had several evening fires and meals on the patio. The home is located on a quiet road but very close to town. We took several day trips, including trips to Bash Bish Falls, the Hudson River Valley and Stockbridge, MA.

We would love to come back to this peaceful home. It was a wonderful week of relaxation in the lovely hills of New York.

Beautiful, clean and spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great home. My family and I just had the opportunity to rent this house during our three day Christmas weekend. The house is a perfect size for one or two families. It has everything you can think of, extra blankets, sheets, towels, etc. There were 5 bikes lined up when you enter the house. There was also an air hockey machine my entire family had a lot of fun with that. There is a nice spacious deck on the second floor, great for bbq's or just to hang out during the warm weather.

I would truly recommend this house to anyone looking to relax and enjoy your home away from home. Also, the owners Bill and Eileen were great. Very quick and responsive to all of my emails. They left us a big box of chocolate. I think that's just a wonderful way for them to welcome us.
