Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is very spacious, comfortable and clean. On the first floor there is a living room , family room, dining room, half bath, and study where the WIFI is setup. We used the WIFI which worked well. The kitchen is large and well equipped with mixing bowls, a variety of different sized pots, baking pans, lots of plates, glasses and serving pieces. We especially enjoyed the family room which has a great entertainment system as well as glass doors to an outside deck. We are bird watchers and enjoyed the many birds that came to visit the feeder on the deck. It is a great house for a summer barbeque as there is a charcoal grill and a large dining room. There was great communication with the owner who quickly responded to questions and met us when we arrived to show us through the house. Highly recommend.

Spectacular home with beautiful mountain views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using HomeAway and we were thrilled with the accommodations. We had an extended family reunion and I can't imagine a nicer home in Williamstown, MA. Everything we needed was in the house and our host Venetia was very helpful and friendly. We have run our own Bed and Breakfast on Cape Cod for almost 25 years so we know a little about the hospitality business and Venetia is a top notch host and her home is top shelf too.

Wonderful summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time our family had in this lovely, spacious home. There was plenty of room in the house for my husband and me as well as our children and grandchildren. Venetia could not have been nicer. She answered all our questions and greeted us at the door. The house was as clean as can be and had a large isolated backyard for all the kids to run around in. The area was had terrific places to visit for both the adults and children. Don't miss going up Mt. Greylock for the most stunning views!

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Williamstown for an annual alumni golf tournament at The Taconic Golf Club every year for several years now. With a group that fluctuates between 6 and 12 people, we have always struggled to find a nice, comfortable house with plenty of beds and sleeping areas, functional kitchen and clean, comfortable spaces to hang out and tell stories about the day. NOT ANYMORE!

This house is wonderful! We had 7 people this year and we were all EXTREMELY comfortable in the house each of the 5 nights we were there. There is plenty of space, plenty of different rooms and spaces to lounge as well as a spectacular outdoor deck and yard to enjoy the summer Berkshire evenings. Bathrooms are large and very functional including a great master shower and a spacious hall bathroom. Two downstairs half baths are also really nice to have near the kitchen and living rooms, as well as an excellent first floor laundry room with nice appliances. The kitchen is great to hang out in with a pair of very comfortable arm chairs as well as plenty of counter-height stools at the island.

In securing the house, Venetia was wonderful; completely responsive, upfront, easy to coordinate with and a real joy to rent from. Her rental policies are also VERY reasonable and check-in and check out was a breeze. No need to vacuum or replace the sheets, take trash to the curb or anything else. Simply strip the beds, leave the house clear of debris and she takes care of the rest!

We absolutely loved our stay here in this Williamstown Colonial and look forward to staying here again next year (fingers crossed!!!). Thank you so much, Venetia, for your wonderful hospitality and sharing your lovely home with us. We can't wait to come back!!!

Great house! Accurate listing, smooth transaction

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well-maintained property with great gathering space on the main floor and ample comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen was well-stocked. Great back deck and yard. Owner was a pleasure to work with. We will certainly be back in the future!

Wonderful and spacious space!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this place, perfect for family with or without children. We spent a beautiful MLK playing the piano (a little bit out of tune, but, no complaints about that :):) Children loved the huge closet full of toys and we loved the spacious kitchen and great views while cooking dinner. It is very well located, close to Mass Mocca and the other museums in town and close to the skiing facilities. There were enough clean sheets, blankets (11 of us) and towels for everyone. Maybe it would have been useful to have more available wood for the fireplace and also more toilet paper. Other than that, it was a lovely weekend in a great house!!!
