Very clean and inviting.
The house was very clean and inviting. The kids had so many toys to play with glad we didn't pack many toys.
Lovely stay in the Berkshires
They have a well maintained home that is perfect for people traveling with or without little ones! My wife and I have a one-year old and we appreciated how child safe their home is, especially the door that shuts off the top of the stairs from the rest of the main room!
The location is great! Very peaceful and serine, but also not to far from the nearby towns of Sheffield, Great Barrington, Canaan, Salisbury, and Millerton.
The owners were very attentive to our needs (such as getting the internet up and running again).
I highly recommended this home as a vacation rental!
Excellent for family with young kids
We really enjoyed our stay. The kids loved all the toys to play with. The tree fort had a sort of pulley thing which seemed a bit dangerous but other than that the whole place was incredibly family friendly. There were tons of linens and towels. Everything we could need. Our children are small, ages two to six, and they were perfectly thrilled with the inside toys, the fort, the pool, etc.
Ww were wo blessed to be able to find this treasure with the beauty of God's creation all around.
Our experience with being here was true thankfulness. Out kids were in the area taking a course and we (grandparents) had a comfortable and very homey place to take care of our grandson. I was so impressed with the kindness and helpfulness of Marie the owner. We were treated like family and they even changed their own plans to be here this week with their kids to accommodate us. The home is decorated to be enjoyable and was super comfortable and clean. The property was stunning We enjoyed every moment and look forward to being back Thank you.
Perfect Family/Friends Country Getaway!
What a perfect getaway home and location for family and/or friends. My family had the most wonderful stay here and can't wait to come back. The listing is just as described and pictured - bright, clean, spacious, full of toys/books for children, and kid friendly. On a beautiful back country road, close to so many berkshire attractions, with a farm right across the way. We woke up each morning to horses grazing in the field across the road. A big treat for little ones. There's a great big kitchen table on which we had lots of big family feasts and late night game playing. There's a nice rocky hill and a large yard for all kinds of play. Marie was so kind, thoughtful, attentive, and available for any questions we had. She was full of suggestions for things to do in the area. There's great hiking, skiing, tubing, horse back riding literally all minutes from the house. We can't wait to go back!!
Home away from home!
My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying at this house on more than one occasion. The house lends itself to a peaceful and relaxing stay all year round. The views surrounding the house are spectacular. The house is surrounded by wide open fields, grazing horses and beautiful nature all around. The kitchen amenities are amazing. If you like to cook, you will find all the appliances and kitchen tools you could ever hope for. In the summer time we enjoyed barbecuing on the enclosed deck.
For nature enthusiasts, there are great places for hiking nearby such as Bartholomew's Cobble and Monument Mountain. Sheffield is located just twenty minutes from Great Barrington. We enjoyed going to local shops and restaurants, bowling and going to the movies in town. Our niece and nephew enjoyed swimming in the local Green River and at Lake Mansfield in Great Barrington. They also loved horse back riding at the Blue Rider Stables in South Egremont. The house is full of toys, games and puzzles which kept them occupied and content.
We LOVE staying at this house! It is simply a lovely and relaxing place to spend a week away from home. HIGHLY recommended for couples and families!
