A warm, inviting, clean and modernized property with a beautiful view and direct water access. The owners were very responsive, helpful, generous and have provided for their guests extremely well. The property is accurately described and the cleanliness and modern amenities made us feel instantly relaxed when we arrived. An excellent property!

An amazing getaway for any season !

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely vacation stay at Ridge House. This house was spotless clean and included everything you would need to make your stay complete. The owners responded quickly to all of our questions and were so accomodating. The view and location is incredible. With only a 10 minute drive to Jiminy Peak, it’s a perfect winter getaway. The lake is in the backyard and i can’t wait to visit again during warmer weather. We are definitely coming back this summer! Thanks Chelsea and Raphael for an incredible stay !

Fantastic Winter Break Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic stay at the Ridge House! 9 of us (4 adults & 5 kiddos) stayed at the Ridge House for 4 nights. We arrived to a spotless and sweetly decorated home. We skied at nearby Jiminy Peak, which was about 15/20 min away. We made dinner every night and found the kitchen to be very well appointed. The lake views were fantastic and the house was warm and cozy. The owners responded promptly to any questions we had. We are considering renting again next year and highly recommend this house for an easy and relaxing get away.

Beautiful, well maintained house perfect for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

I came with 10 girls for a long weekend and this house was perfect. There were beds for all of us, a great kitchen, dining and living room space for us to hang out, and a gorgeous view from a private dock. One small downside was the one shower, but it wasn't a big deal. It got very hot while we were visiting and the owners kindly came and installed the ACs for us. We rented kayaks from across the lake one afternoon, which was easy and fun. Also, the neighbors were extremely friendly and definitely added to our experience. I'd highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a lake house in the Berkshires!
