Why Steve Bileca chose Sheffield

Perfect for our Family Reunion!
This house exceeded our expectations as a place to get our far flung family together for a reunion! The layout of the house is perfect for a large gathering! The huge kitchen table and large patio dining table made gathering for meals easy and pleasurable. The basement area, which we used as the kids space, with its ping pong table, bunk rooms, plenty of space for play, and access to the yard was great! It allowed the kids to have loud play space while adults gathered in the living room to visit and enjoy the fantastic view of the Berkshires. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking, beds and bedding were comfortable, baths were clean and spacious. This house is so well set up and just easy and comfortable to be in, it definitely added to the pleasure of our reunion and we felt lucky we picked this spot. We were nervous about picking a house for this special gathering online, there is always the possibility that the house won't live up to its description or photos. We felt this one exceeded both and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there! By the way, take the owner's direction to not put your trash outside seriously, there are active black bears throughout the area and we got a close view of one that stopped by just as we were leaving the house one morning. Thankfully we didn't have any trash or food outside, but she was definitely checking for it!
Overall a fantastic spot, we would rent it again in a heartbeat! Thanks to the owners for offering this space for rent and being available to help us with any questions we had.
Awesome place to stay!
This is our third year back at this house and I highly recommend this location. Steve is very easy to work with. He is responsive and always willing to help. The house is clean and roomy and was prefect for our group of 14 for our golf weekend in the Berkshires. Already looking forward to next year.
Great family stay, owners were excellent and easy to communicate with.
Property was a perfect setup for our big family gathering. Beautiful scenery abounds, and the house is a great setup for a big group. We will be back!
the home is beautiful, super clean, and the views are gorgous
This home was booked for 15 adults attending a weekend retreat. The weather was misty, which made for more indoor time than expected, yet the enormous windows made us feel like we were outdoors. The natural light and fall colors on the Berkshire Hills set a calming and relaxing back drop. Simply beautiful (picture doesn’t do this home justice). Plenty of gathering spaces for intimate conversations as well as the large group areas with beautiful sunsets. The bathrooms were well designed, modern and spacious. And this newer home was immaculate! The radiant heat floors were heaven on the fall days. Steve was responsive to questions and requests. It was a fabulous stay and would book again!
Minor Critiques: the kitchen counters are a bit higher than standard and our 5'2" chef made note of this.The open concept dinning/kitchen/living room was a bit loud during our meals, but have found this is the case with all open concept floor plans. In bedroom 4 & 5, the 3rd bed was a trundle for one and a mattress on the floor for the other.
Again, it was a wonderful stay and would book again!
Beautiful place in the Berkshires!
Three families stayed at Steve and Angela's beautiful Berkshire home for a nearby wedding. The house is gorgeous, so clean and comfortable, and it has everything we needed. The huge kitchen table was our main gathering area (along with the screened-in porch before it got too cool). Can't say enough about how great our stay was and how responsive Steve was to any questions we had. Thank you so very much for a great weekend!
Our 10 member family spent two very comfortable days in this very special house. We greatly enjoyed our time there and would love to rent this home again. But, in the future, we don't expect to need a house of this size. Clearly, it was our best rental.
