Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at my cabin. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you will come again. Spring, summer and fall are wonderful in the Berkshires as well, but of course warmer and you don't have to worry about your car getting stuck in the snow. Tom

We expected a lovely home but we were absolutely FLOORED with delight! Hill House is everything we wanted and MORE! Gorgeous, spacious home inside and out. Excellent location near the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival! Lots of special touches, including a "Welcome" bottle of wine and Milano cookies! We loved it so much we hope to rent again next year! Thank you, Tom!!

CHARMING CABIN, GREAT HOST.

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! The house is beautiful, clean, full of details that make it unique. You can see that it has a soul. Tom was very accommodating, I HAD NO REASON TO CALL HIM SINCE EVERYTHING WAS IN ORDER AND IN THE SAID PLACE MENTIONED IN AGREEMENT. The nature around the house is amazing very quite, All of the beds are comfortable and big enough for adults. We also enjoyed the river that runs down the hill (the water was so clean and refreshing!), Our stay was wonderful and I would recommend this place to everybody without a shadow of a doubt! our family was well pleased.

looking forward to visiting again soon. Thanks again, Tom!

A lovely, peaceful retreat with room for all to be together or off alone in the yard or on the deck.. Well equipped for cooking and plenty of games for young children. Tom, the owner, is very responsive to emails and makes his home quite welcoming.
