my family and i enjoyed a weekend full of beautiful weather, great views and a very comfortable home. The house was exceptionally clean, with a fully stocked kitchen of all the utensils needed to prepare a meal. The bedrooms were very spacious with a full bath in each of the upstairs bedrooms! very nice! the pool was well kept, clean and quite large with chairs and chase lounges and tables surrounding it. This place is absolutely fabulous and we plan to book again for next year for our family get away and reunion. Since we ski we didnt realize just how close it was to Jiminy Peak so will keep in mind for winter as well.
Our family sends a big thank you for the wonderful vacation we had at your home. It was truly a relaxing and fun-filled time. The grandchildren spent most of their time in the pool, of course, but also managed some exciting whiffle ball games and the much less athletic games of Scrabble with the adults.
Our grandchildren say thank you in their own special way...they are sending a photo of themselves wearing the sombrero collection!
Many thanks, again, to you and Al.
We had a gathering of five families with kids stay at this house for a few nights in June. The rooms are really spacious, comfortable, and clean. The house has great "country style" decor all around, as well. It really gives you the feeling that you've left the hustle and bustle behind. The house was also well-stocked with all sorts of kitchen items, games, etc. The pool was clean and big (well, for city folks, at least), with a nice shallow 3' end for kids. We had a very relaxing time just hanging out on the covered front porch and grilling up some meat. We didn't use of any of the boats or other things the house has, nor did we venture beyond the vast piece of property itself, but I think more adventurous folks would have something to enjoy in that regard. The owners were very responsive and took the time to give me a thorough orientation over the phone right before our stay (without my asking!). For me personally, it was my first house rental anywhere, and I thought it was an unequivocally positive experience all around.
20-30 Minutes from all area attractions including:
Berkshire Theatre Festival
Jiminy Peak Ski Resort
Outlets at Lee, MA & Outlets at Manchester, VT
