Guestbook comments from the owner

Marlene, we had a great visit, and since most of the rentals we have done previously required that we bring our own towels and linens, we did so by force of habit. I am also a firm believer in leaving as little work as possible for anyone else.

You were extremely thoughtful , and the little touches including the gift basket, etc. were just amazing. Thank you so much, and we will be sure to think of you when we book again.

Modern/Clean Cozy Cabin Yet 15 Minutes From Pittsfield, MA - Had A Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

First time at this rental and was well represented in the listing. Owners were very engaged and available both prior to and during the stay.


- Modern construction with modern appliances, etc.

- Internet (not super fast but expected in the country), TV/DVD.

- One block of beautiful lake.

- A few small towns with convience stores within minutes, only 15 minutes from major shopping.

- Highly recommend the Price Chopper (Market 32) in Pittsfield for groceries, Starbucks and prepared food.

- Owners very accessilbe and accommodating.

Things That Could Make A Great Experience Even Better

- Better sofa in living room. Currently there is a recliner chair (comfy) and futon (not so comfy).

- Night stand on both sides of the bed - between phones that need charging and place for eyeglass, etc. one of us had to put those things on the floor and risk being stepped on by us or our kiddos.

- Hot water supply was minimal. Good for quick showers but not for baths. We have 2 kids who require baths plus my wife likes to enjoy a relaxed bath on vacation and the hot water supply got you to just about half a tub full of water.

We had a great time and would certainly consider a return stay!

Owner's Response: Hope to replace futon next spring. Will put some sort of nite stand on other side of the bed. No problem. Can't under stand not enough hot water. It is a large electric hot water tank only 5 years old. Have had repeat families with small children and no complaints from them. I will have my plumber check it out. Thanks for the info.

Nice Cabin - Horrible Bed and Futon

  • 3 of 5

THE GOOD - Beautiful newer log cabin, all the amenities, good central Berkshire location, Marlene was prompt and responsive, shower excellent.

THE BAD - The beds and futon need to be replaced - very uncomfortable. Replace these and this place is a solid 4.5 stars out of 5

Owner's Response: Sorry that you were unhappy with the beds and futon on your recent weekend. I plan to correct that problem before opening the cabin in the spring. Thank you for your insight.

Beautiful, comfortable, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cabin over 2 days since we were attending a show at Tanglewood. We look for peace, quiet & nature, and we found all of that in this cabin. On top of it all, it was bigger than we expected, and looks very well kept and up-to-date. Super clean! Marlene was very nice to us through all of her communication prior to our arrival and when she met us in person. The little lake beach was very close by and we loved how quiet and private the area is. PERFECT place for a getaway from the city! Would love to come back.

Hinsdale Nice Lake area Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful, new, home-like cabin with updated kitchen and two bedrooms, back deck and driveway. It was perfectly suited for our vacation need as a small family with a toddler. We love how close it was to the lake/mini-beach, it was truly a gem in this less well known town in the berkshires area. The closest grocery store was about 20 min drive. The owner was very attentive to every questions I had. We would definitely give it a full score if there were washer/dryer on site.

We will be returning if we are vacationing in the area again! Thank you!

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

It was our 2nd visit. The house is very nice and cozy.

We had everything we needed, it was clean and good organized. We had a good time at the area as well, we went for a concert at Tanglewood and a couple of shows in Williamstown.

We have only one suggestion -we wish that it would be a grill and umbrella/tent on the deck - we would of stay more outside.

But everything else was just perfect.

Thank you very much.

Owner's Response: I plan to have a grill and some sort of canopy in the near future, but first I would like to expand the deck out to accomodate a grill.

A cozy log cabin just been built on top of hill overlooking Ashmere Lake in Hinsdale, Ma. A perfect place for rest and relaxation. Walking distance to the private beach for sunning, swimming, fishing, boating or just exploring.

Located outside of Pittsfield, you are a short distance to many Berkshire attractions such as Norman Rockwell Museum, Jacob's Pillow, Shakespeare & Co., Kripalu Yoga Center, Canyon Ranch, Berkshire Museum, Hancock Shaker Village, Tanglewood, Jiminy Peak, Mass MOCA, Barrington Stage Co, Williamstown Theatre, Clarke Art Museum and the Prime Outlets (shop till you drop!).

Hinsdale is a quaint central Berkshire town that lacks the summer/fall tourist traffic of the southern Berkshire area.The area is surrounded by beautiful lakes and hills with many opportunities to get outside and enjoy nature.Fall foliage color overload right around you. A fully equipped kitchen, ceiling fans, central heat if needed.

Just bring your suitcase, everything else is included!
