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.

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.

Lovely cabin - felt very clean

  • 5 of 5

We arrived very late so the owner made special arrangements for us to get the key since she could not meet us at the cabin. Everything went very smoothly. The cabin was clean, all the furniture felt new, and there were plenty of sheets, blankets, towels, pots and panes. Everything one needs to feel right at home. They also provided sundries (e.g. small bottles of shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc) in case we forgot any. This was a nice touch that you usually don't find in a vacation rental.

Only major cons were 1) it's a bit remote from many of the activities in the Berkshires. We had to drive ~20 minutes to get to the nearest town (with a decent sized grocery store) and 2) the grill was quite rusty although they provided an aluminum grating that sits on top of the rusty bars to protect the food.

We'd definitely stay here again!

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!
