When I think of the Berkshires, I think of culture, luxury, beauty, elegance... and Ellen and Cecil's lovely cottage captures this perfectly. We spent a fall weekend there and can't wait to come back. Even driving onto the property, we felt like we were on a beautiful southern plantation. The iron gates in the entranceway hall are a clue that you are entering a cross between a grand home and museum. The "great room" is filled with tasteful paintings, sculptures, an antique player piano, and various other forms of art. But it still feels like an inviting home, with elegant furniture, large windows, and all the basic creature comforts. The two bedrooms and large bath were equally tasteful. The location is ideal, being close to Lenox and Lee and within a half-hour drive of almost everything in the Berkshires. We enjoyed biking and hiking up on October Mountain which is just up the street. We hope to return soon!
I love the description of this review and am impressed that in a mere two nights, Jason was able to capture the essence of our guest house! We are so pleased that Jason appreciated all the love and care we put into the rental and that our objective of having it feel special and cozy was realized. We would be thrilled to have them return again especially after seeing how well they left the house at the end of their stay. They were wonderful guests!
In a great location. Bring your bathing suit and tennis racket.
Delightful, Spacious Cottage
We spent 2 July weeks in this airy, luxurious apartment, centrally located for access to Berkshire cultural events. Surrounded by grassy lawns and beautiful old trees.Comfortable furniture, spotless, all amenities provided as noted in listing. Owners friendly and helpful. Would recommend to friends and relatives, except those with young children.
We so enjoyed having the Kagans stay in our attached guest home! They are lovely people and so friendly and fun to be with! They actually invited us for drinks on the back deck! We hardly knew they were here, otherwise, as they were quiet and mostly out exploring all the Berkshires offered. We would welcome them back anytime!
This was our third time at Fox Hollow and again everything was perfect. The little details and extra effort Ellen and Cecil put into our stay (a box of Swiss miss for the kids and a bottle of wine for us waiting on the table :) made our stay truly special. We ca't wait to come back :)
So sweet of you, Miriam, to write such a lovely review! We enjoyed having you and your family here again and cannot believe it has been an entire year since your last visit! Seeing your sons grow each year is really a joy and we are so pleased that you have chosen to come again. It was a delight to hear their squeals of joy when they were playing outside in the snow!We feel very honored to have you all and you are always welcome back! Thank you!
Treasure in the Berkshires
This was our 2nd time at the Ponds at Foxhollow and despite the extreme cold we had the best time. The house is a real treasure, "bright and airy" with magnificent views, beautiful furniture with attention to detail. And best of all - Ellen and Cecil's hospitality - they put out hot chocolate for the boys, extra blankets and a heater because it was so cold. We will definitely be back :)
You sure chose the coldest weekend to stay at our home (The Fowler House) in the Berkshires but were troopers and we are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves both indoors and outdoors! We appreciate your enthusiasm and welcome you back again! You are a terrific family! Hope the third time will be a charm if you come this summer, so you can experience all the cultural activities the Berkshires offers!
Our second stay...did not disappoint
This was our second visit to this home and we were not a bit disappointed. The house is immaculate, comfortable and very well-equipped. The location is both convenient and beautiful and Ellen was extremely responsive and attentive.
The best compliment we can get is when our renters come back again! We are so glad you got to welcome in the new year in the Berkshires and that you felt so at home! Thank you so much for taking the time to send in your review and hope the third time 'round will be a charm!
