Great gathering place!

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this house for two weeks in order to spend time under the same roof with our grown children and baby grandson - and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable time! The house provided ample space for us to gather in small groups or larger ones whether we were indoors, outside on the deck or in the yard. The location in town was ideal for pushing the baby stroller along all the sidewalks as well as easily accessing all the shops and restaurants. With the Red Lion Inn only a block away, unexpected guests had a place to stay while spending the rest of their time with us. We found the homeowner to be very receptive to any questions we had - and very informative about the area. All in all, it was a great two weeks!

Great place

My family and I stayed here for four nights in May and totally loved it. Very comfortable and great location. Great kitchen. Easy access to lots of attractions. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to vacation in the beautiful Berkshires.

Great Getaway in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

We planned a two family trip to Stockbridge for New Year’s, and found this house on Howeaway. The house was perfect- beautiful, clean and well decorated, and of course, very comfortable to be in. Great kitchen where we cooked almost every evening, and a great sitting room where we relaxed by the fire until late at night. Very convenient for a walk to town, a drive to the ski mountains, and all the other nearby attractions. George was incredibly friendly and helpful leading up to and following our trip (he mailed us something we forgot without a problem). We definitely would come back and look forward to more family memories there in the winter or year-round.

The Most Perfect Place Ever

  • 5 of 5

We visited the Berkshires in July and were elated with our experience at this charming, cozy,beautifully done home. It felt like a home away from home and we will definitely be back! Conveniently located close to all the art, culture, yoga, shopping you could need as well as a perfect spot to connect with nature and all the beautiful people in the community. The kitchen is perfect for cooking paired with an amazing view of the stars for a cozy night in. This is the perfect place for a fun friend weekend or retreat, family trip or for a romantic weekend away. The owner George was a wonderful host with great knowledge of the area and suggestions for hotspots and local secrets. Can't beat that its so close to Jacobs Pillow if you are a dance enthusiast! Can't wait to come back!!1

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was fantastic and George made it even more so. He was beyond hospitable and accommodating. The property is so spectacular, we didn't want to leave. Great area with lots to see and do whether its canoeing or kayaking, hiking, antiquing, its all here. Very peaceful and private for those seeking refuge from the hustle and bustle. Highly recommended. Thank you George, can't wait to come back!!!!

Above expectation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited the Berkshires early Sept for some down time and we couldn't have picked a better house. My wife fell in love with the kitchen and the overall design of the house. After our stay my wife even tried to convince me to buy her a Sub-Zero fridge like the one in the house. I told her we should just go back for a week if she misses the fridge.

We loved BBQing on the deck and enjoying the river views. Just a great place.

The owner George was very helpful in suggesting great restaurants and events. He also recommended we visit the Brimfield antique show http://www.brimfieldshow.com

We walked the show for 2 days and didn't even get to see it all. My wife and I bought some really cool items and just loved the show. We're definitely coming back next year.

Thanks for a great stay.
