About Karen Cimini

A long-time resident of Berkshire County, I enjoy biking, canoeing, snowshoeing, and spending time with family. My husband and I currently live in Pittsfield Massachusetts.

Karen Cimini purchased this house in 1987

Why Karen Cimini chose Berkshires

The land that we built this home on was passed down to me by my father. I lived here for 27 years and raised 5 children so it is a very special place to me.

What makes this house unique

The privacy of this property makes it very unique. If you are looking for a quiet place to spend a summer afternoon or a home base for exploring this spot has everything you need.

Beautiful get away!

  • 4 of 5

6 of us gathered for a girls' weekend and the house was practically perfect. Very comfortable and well taken care of, with a great common area for all of us to gather. The pool was fantastic, complete with fun floats. The house is kind of remote - about 20 minutes from stores, etc. on country roads without street lights - part of the charm, but a little daunting for some drivers at night. If you want to truly get away from it all, hang out by the pool, soak up the beautiful scenery, this is a perfect house.

Great stay at a lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Karen's beautifully maintained house. The pool was awesome. Everything you could need was there - a grill, fire pit, great appliances. We would stay at Karen's place again when visiting the Berkshires. Awesome place for using as a home base to explore the area. Karen was always available to answer questions. Great experience!

Perfect quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family (including a 6 month old baby) and I had a fantastic 2 night stay at the cozy ranch house. We drove up from Boston to attend the 4th of July concert at Tanglewood.

Reservation-easy via Homeaway! Karen, the owner, was easy to reach and always provided timely feedback. From the moment we booked the house, Karen was always available via texts to help answer questions and directions. Fantastic owner who really cares about her property and renters.

Property-it is indeed cozy and quiet as stated in the name. The house was nestled in the woods. We were so excited to drive up to see the surrounding. The house has 3 bedrooms, each room has a window a/c unit and a fan. The kitchen was well equipped and we used the grill to make a nice steak dinner for 4 and sat outside by the table next to the pool. We then capped the evening with a nice fireside chat. The house is quaint and has everything we needed, even great wifi! We never turned on the TV but there is one. We didn't get to enjoy the pool on this trip but it is clean and surprisingly large. Lastly, we enjoyed sitting on the front porch and enjoy our baby played on the ground while the birds chirp the day away.

Lover's Lane was a charming stay for our family. We absolutely loved it and recommend it. We hope to return some day!

Fabulous home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

This vacation spot was perfect for our sisters-getaway. It was very clean and comfortable. The house and yard are very private with no neighbors on either side. It has a beautiful in-ground pool with plenty of seating. The front porch was cozy and was perfect for relaxing during the thunder storm. Although we did not use it, there is a fire pit that would be perfect for making smores. We had a fantastic time and will return in the future. I give this home an A.
