Everything you could EVER want!

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough stars to rate this home and location. Everything you see in the pictures and read in the owners description are accurate and understated. This is a piece of heaven. The peace and quiet is incredible, the pond is serene, the fireplace inside and the fire pit outside are just excellent-not to mention the awesome hot tub. The house is designed perfectly and has everything you could want. We will be back and many times-as long they continue to share this piece of paradise. I cannot think of another thing to add to either the home or the location to improve it-it is like being in your own world and when you are ready to return, life is right down the road in the most quintessential "New England" area I have seen. If there were more stars to rate this as better than expected I would have been glad to have given it a "10".

Owner's Response: This is the kind of feedback that makes all our effort worth while. It is, of course, a business, but it has always been much more than that. Sharing a little piece of heaven with people who really appreciate it is most gratifying. Thank you for spending some special time here, and for expressing it so graciously.

Outstanding experience, it looks too good to be true, but it is!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you see in description and other reviews is accurate to the letter. Owner is very attentive, the house is in perfect condition, comfortable, well equipped and clean. My family had wonderful time, the lake is amazing, as clean as it can possibly be, there's even crayfish! Exceptional privacy, yet all the shopping you might need minutes away.

I almost don't want to write this review to keep competition away!

Highly recommended, can't wait to come spend time there again!

Perfect privacy, tranquility, and comfort

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, together with his 91-year-old mother and my 29-year-old son, spent an idyllic week relaxing in this beautiful and commodious house. For the first weekend we were joined by my husband's son and daughter-in-law, and the six of us plus our two large dogs fit very nicely into the three bedrooms and sunroom. In fact, we also fit quite nicely (minus the dogs) into the terrific jacuzzi on the deck, overlooking the pond. The more vigorous in our group took long happy hikes in nearby forests and parks as well as bike rides into Stockbridge, while the less vigorous enjoyed curling up with books on the deck or poking around in the region's many charming boutiques and farmers' markets. Our dogs experienced sheer bliss, start to finish: wild turkeys! frogs! rabbits! The house is brilliantly equipped for cooking, dining, and exploring the region; the kitchen, in particular, offers every culinary tool you could possibly want. We used the big gas grill every night but one. We will certainly want to spend more time in this lovely place!

Piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I returned for a second visit to this little paradise recently and I was comforted and surprised at how wonderful it all was again! I had wondered if it would have lost some of it's wonder the second time around and that was a big NO. Still as perfect and peaceful as it was on our first visit. From the wildlfe to the sightseeing and shopping and poking around this lovely area back to the most perfect home for relaxation and unplugging, it really does not get any better. This home is comfortable, well equiped and clean. The owner is very attentive to every need. All you could ask for in this one lovely spot. It is not a question of IF we will return it is when. Love it!

Perfect 10 ++

  • 5 of 5

It was our good fortune to have rented this house for a week in mid October. This home and property( 35 acres and beautiful private lake) was absolutely fabulous, spacious, tasteful, comfortable furnishings and very well equipped. Our dog enjoyed romping on the property and wading in the lake. The setting is very private but so close to all you want to do in the Berkshires. Owner was very responsive and over all great to deal with. Would highly recommend for anytime of the year.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a "one of a kind" property. Aside form being quiet, private, clean, comfortable, easy to locate and luxurious, it has every amenity you could want while still feeling like your camping in the woods. The views are stunning and the home itself and the property are very well taken care of. I would recommend this to anyone seeking a respite from the real world, who wants a very centralized location close to everything special in the Berkshires, and to those who love to cook, be in front of the fire place and relax in the bounty and beauty of the Berkshires!.

We are DEFINITELY going back!

The property is 35 acres including woods, a 3 acre large open area for sports, and trails for hiking. The property overlaps both South Lee and Stockbridge.

It is 5 minutes from the Red Lion Inn, Lenox and Tanglewood, and the Outlets, but you have TOTAL privacy.
