Beautiful home, well maintained, and perfect for our family
Our family spent Christmas here as it was perfectly located between multiple family members. The house was very well maintained, a great size and space for multiple family members with kids, and had an amazing kitchen. Linda was incredibly accommodating and available for questions. I would definitely return here in the future!
Cozy and complete
Laura and Doug offer a great relaxing home with a fantastic open kitchen to cool and socialize and a cozy comfortable all season sunroom to relax. Spend a remote thanksgiving there and we’re very happy with the space.
Great weekend away
The house was exactly what we wanted. The owners are very helpful and thought of everything we might have needed to enjoy our time away from home.
a large 2 nd floor apartment
we as old people struggled with our heavy suitcases getting in and out, but they helped. The
place was clean and spacious. A little buggy one night with mosquitos, perhaps a loose screen
We enjoyed it The steps were a challenge to me being 80 YO
Fabulous House with so many extra touches
I rented this house this past weekend with four other women friends. We are all seasoned travelers and renting on VRBO is not new to us.....................this house is a gem. It is beautifully decorated in a peaceful setting, there were great gathering spaces throughout the house and it's nestled in a lovely wooded area. This is a fabulous location. The kitchen is well stocked and easy to use and we cooked dinner and breakfast. I would not hesitate to come back or rent this home for a week. It's a fabulous, fabulous house.
Great weekend get away in the Berkshires!!
Linda was a great host & tour guide! We loved our stay in her house. Perfect for our group (2 families with little kids). The sand box, the little outdoor play house, the books, toys and Netflix ;-) were a big hit. The fenced porch is great to enjoy the warm summer nights without mosquitos. Come see for yourself!
