About Brooks Singer

I live in Arizona now but enjoyed the Berkshires for many years.

Brooks Singer purchased this house in 1990

Why Brooks Singer chose Berkshires

We lived in the Berkshires for years but moved to Phoenix and only visit occasionally. The house is very well kept and is meant as a place to relax, have fun and build memories.

What makes this house unique

The house is in a great location. Very quiet. It's also near everything great in the Berkshires. It's the best rental value of any home I have seen by far!!! Who else has a jetted tub and steam shower at these prices!?

Lovely Berkshire get away with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property as our base for a wedding in nearby NY. The house is lovely and has even more amenities than I had remembered from the posting. The owner gave excellent directions to the property -- something that was invaluable. There were only three of us, but the house can easily fit a larger group. The pizza recommendation was also a hit. I think the most telling recommendation is that my homebody husband wanted to stay longer than the two day rental. We will definitely consider this location for future visits to the area.

Retreat from the real world

  • 4 of 5

This home was just right for our family during a wedding weekend in the Berkshires - well-appointed kitchen and plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Brooks provided VERY specific directions to the home, which were extremely helpful, as the house is located on a small dirt road and would otherwise be hard to find. Although the house had wifi, I had trouble logging on for the bit of work I had to do and drove into Great Barrington to a Dunkin Donuts to access a stronger wifi signal. We also had very little to no cell service, but the house has a home phone in case of emergency. Plenty of towels were provided and the beds were comfortable. Beautiful setting in a peaceful and scenic part of the country.

Wonderful vacation in this Berkshires gem!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this fantastic house. The decor is colorful and textured, and the location is ideal. It is clean and spacious with a very well equipped kitchen. The master bedroom is very large, with a spa-like master bath that has a steam room.

We did a lot of hiking, biking, museums, dining out and just enjoying staying home and looking out at the trees. The house is situated in a secluded area, away from the road, but easily accessible to Tanglewood, Great Barrington, the Appalachian Trail, and quiet roads for bicycling.

Wonderful ski house

  • 5 of 5

For a ski family (2 adults/3 children) the house was perfect! Only 10 minutes to Catamount and Butternut. The house was exactly as pictured. Not too far off the main road. The house was clean, great layout with two dinning areas and comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen is well stocked with all the cooking tools you need. Towels and sheets were provided. Brooks was a pleasure to deal with and very quick to answer any questions you may have.

Overall we had a fantastic stay and would love to return again.

Great Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO in the Berkshires, and apparently we chose wisely! The house was well stocked, has great layout with master suite on first floor and huge deck. Our dog had a blast as our 2 other couples. The house a bit difficult to find at first but that just added to the charm. Bottom line...Highly reccomended!!!

Great place to stay, very comfortable and close to Great Barrington and surrounding attractions

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful and quiet. Great house layout. Never had a chance to use fireplace because the weather was warm. Master suite is huge and comforable. The master bathroom was a little cold. We will be going back. Great Barrington is right down the road for dining and shopping.
