A wonderful, cozy cabin in beautiful New Marlborough
We had a fantastic stay at this cozy, charming cabin. We stayed for 3 nights on either side of our wedding weekend at Gedney Farm and this cabin provided the perfect home base. The views of the open fields are beautiful. Thank you again for a fantastic stay, Jim.
Congratulations on your wedding - thanks again for staying with us!
I had the most FANTASTIC stay!! I worked in Great Barrington for 3 months while staying at Mr. Hannigan's property. I had no issues. His hospitality was above and beyond!! The scenery and wildlife was so beautiful. The Umpanchee waterfalls only 7 miles from this house. Believe me when I tell you . . . You will not be disappointed. Thank you Jim!!
Clean & cozy!
This was our 2nd year in a row coming to this house in the Berkshires in the fall. We'll definitely keep coming back! The house is always clean and cozy, and this year not only did the only leave us a bottle of wine, but numerous candles as well to set the mood for the weekend. Despite the rain for almost the entire stay, we made the most of it by putting on a fire, playing games, and enjoying being out of the city. Hope to be back for our 3rd year in 2017!
We recently added a queen size platform bed in the loft. The fireplace is a cast iron stove that keeps the cottage nice and warm and sits on a large piece of soap stone. There are a variety of games and we continuously update the book case with both fiction and non-fiction books for those avid readers.
Cozy Little Place - Perfect for Outdoor Hanging
Great place to stay if you are looking to "unplug" and enjoy quiet and the outdoors. We stayed here for a wedding, and were able to walk to the venue at Gedney Farm - couldn't have been more convenient! We arrived late Friday and were greeted with a bottle of wine from the host - very sweet touch for these wine lovers. The yard is HUGE, with a BBQ and a fire pit, though we had some trouble finding the fire pit. Tip: it's close to the road, past the BBQ. We did all of our cooking on the grill because the oven was pretty dated and BBQ > cooking indoors. Grocery store, liquor store...basically everything...is a 15-20 minute drive in Great Barrington. On the way to Great Barrington you pass a trail head for the Appalachian Trail, and I'm sure other fun, outdoorsy things. We just didn't have the time to really explore (wish we did!)
The cabin itself is cozy, but the "bedroom" is nothing but a loft, accessible by some pretty steep (almost ladder-like) steps that can be a little daunting, especially after drinking. We brought our dog with us, and he was terrified of the stairs. He had to be carried up and down every time. Just beware!
One other thing to note: bring drinking water and water to cook with! The tap water and shower water smell like iron, a lot. We ran both for a few minutes, and it got worse, not better. This was my least favorite part, but not a deal breaker in the least. You're in the Berkshires, not a 5 star hotel.
The yard is actually on 3 acres, most a well maintained field. Across the street is a land preserve -- very peaceful and quiet. The cottage is surrounded by a 1,000 sq. foot cedar deck. The stove is being replaced and is propane based. The futon downstairs serves as a queen size bed for convenience. The water is well water as there is no public water supply. The well is 340 feet deep. The cottage is cozy, private and provides the quintessential "Berkshire" feel.
A lovely cottage surrounded by meadows in a peaceful, beautiful part of the Berkshires, and reasonably close to Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow and other destinations. Nice touches include a bottle of wine from the owner, an outdoor patio with a grill, and a couple of bikes in the shed. A very nice weekend getaway for a couple. Recommended.
The Appalachain Trail and Umpechene falls are both a 5 minute drive for the cottage. Olde Inn on the Green, fine dining, has been operational since the mid-1700's and is a 3 minute walk from the cottage!
I can't recommend.
This cottage is very small, dirty and needs repairs.
The cottage is always cleaned by a service after every rental. The cottage is 900 square feet and sleeps four - a double bed in the loft and queen futon/sofa downstairs. We have never had such complaints in the past and while we asked for specific recommendations and comments from this renter none were received. Please review all other comments.
