Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Well-appointed, clean house that was close to fun activities! We enjoyed sitting in the yard while the kids played and the cows grazed! Owners are close by and available as needed.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My co-workers and I wanted to get away for a weekend. We found this property clean, fully stocked and even more beautiful than it looks in the pictures. Kitchen is spacious and the dining room table is great for meals and games. We will for sure be back! :)

Lovely home, great location, and fantastic hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My entire family (3 generations!) needed a place to stay for the weekend in Shelburne Falls, and we couldn't have found a more perfect place.

The house is in excellent condition, with super comfortable furnishings and absolutely everything we needed, from extra towels and blankets to the well stocked kitchen.

Larry was super helpful with the couple things we needed, and otherwise left us to our own devices, and it was great to have a host that I knew was just a text or a phone call away. We also really appreciated the welcome gift of a homemade loaf of bread and a jug of milk, so lovely!

The location was great, just a few minutes drive into downtown Shelburne Falls and just off the main route with a pretty view of the river across the road. It was rather cold out and we had activities planned for the whole weekend, so we didn't explore the property at all, but I have no doubt it's lovely to explore in the warmer months.

Just an all around excellent experience, great property and perfect hosts. Can't recommend more highly!

Charming, comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely visit. The home is comfortable and has all the amenities. It is on a property with hiking trails and close to many outdoor adventures. It is very clean and comfortable. Larry makes guests feel quite welcome. Four stars at the wifi was not working. Larry, the owner, made vigilant attempts to fix the wifi during our stay. It was appreciated!

Beautiful country property

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but positive things to say about our time at this house. Our family of 5 was so comfortable and happy during our stay here. From the time we checked in and saw the fresh baked pumpkin bread, to the time we explored the back woods trails before checking out, we enjoyed our little weekend getaway at Kerry Lea.

The house is *immaculate* and fully stocked. The couches and beds are THE most comfortable we have ever enjoyed while away from home. The kids loved the closet of family games, and they are already asking to return in warmer weather when the cows will be there. We had fun walking in the woods on the private trails. It really felt like our own state park!

The location is fantastically convenient. Everything is nearby. We were a very short drive to Berkshire East mountain, which was great. And on our way out of town we saw the local tourist attractions, which was fun.

Communication with the owners is excellent. Could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you so much, Larry and Jeanne! My husband's birthday weekend was full of great memories. :)
