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!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a three night stay over the holiday weekend for a two family ski trip to Jiminy Peak. The house was spotlessly clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Our group consisted of four adults and four young children. There was plenty of sleeping space and the kids loved the bunk beds. There is only one full bath, so showers need to be coordinated for larger groups. The house is close to many local restaurants and about twenty minutes from Jiminy. The owners were very flexible with our arrival and departure times. Overall, we had an excellent stay.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed at the house over New Years weekend and we could not have been more pleased. The house was immaculate (I'm neurotic about cleanliness) and the owners could not have been any more helpful. John & Mike accommodated our late check-out request without hassle. The kitchen was well stocked and Mike even went out of his way to purchased a teapot for us! There was plenty of room for all of us and the beds were comfy too. We are already talking about a return trip! Thanks John & Mike.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

My two best friends and I and rented this property for xmas family vacation. The house was very clean and stocked with absolutely everything! John and Michael were very nice and made everything very easy. The intertainment center was awesome, we were able to hear music and sing along with a karaoke machine we brought along with us... there was lots of sleeping and recreational space for everyone, we enjoyed eating dinner together at a huge dinner table and take unforgettable pics... the view of the lake and the mountains was magnificent, I can ony imagine how beautiful it must be in the fall, spring or summer... we went skiing and tubing at a skiing resort which was about 40 minutes away (butternut, great berrington) but there are closer ones to the house. Very convenient...

I would absolutely come back for another vacation or recommend this place to anyone! It was everything we were promised and john and Michael were great! Thank you so much for a fantastic time!
