We had a wonderful family get together and we all love to cook. The kitchen is so well equipped with an exceptional variety of spices and herbs and everything a gourmet cook can dream off, feeling almost in paradise. We also used the Weber grill on the porch.
The house is tastefully furnished and very comfortable and Linda and Doug were really so helpful throughout our stay and giving tips where to go and what to see. We will definitely be back when we are in the area again.
Our family with three young children rented this house for a week in February, our home away from home during our ski vacation. It was easily accessible from the highway and close enough to all of the Berkshire sites we wished to visit. The accommodations suited our family wonderfully - all of our needs were met and we were very comfortable. The owner, Linda, was hospitable in introducing us to the property and also gave us the privacy we were hoping for. The children are asking to go back to Linda's house! Staying here is a fond family memory.
This is a beautifully appointed home with comfortable furniture and decor. Well equipped kitchen, lots of space to work and and chat. Felt well taken care of with comfortable beds, quality linens and plenty of towels. It is a great area for the arts, cultural events, history and beautiful scenery. Couldn't ask for more or better - thank you Linda and Doug for a fantastic stay.
Beautiful home and quiet. Very relaxing atmosphere. And, Linda was very nice and easy to deal with.
Linda was Very attentive and easy to work with. House was exceptionally clean. Location was perfect. Left us a book about the house and area. Very helpful.
