Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jeff,

We spent yet another great weekend at your house. It's beginning to feel like home-away-from-home, as we know where to find things and how to use the spa vs pool, etc.



What a great house, and you cannot beat the view! Thanks for the opportunity to once again enjoy it!



Would you be willing to rent it to us again next year--June 24-27th?

Lovely spacious home with something for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

The listed description was accurate. The furnishings, beds, towels, kitchen were all of high quality. We loved the spacious home with plenty of large spaces for our family to gather together, as well as places to go and read, or be alone. The open kitchen/eating areas is a wonderful space for lots of people to help or hang out. The owner provided excellent service. I would definitely recommend it for families or groups of friends. We enjoyed visiting the Norman Rockwell museum, the Shaker Village (could have spent half a day there), and LOVED wandering around W. Stockbridge(renown artist's workshop who provides mobiles to top museums), and shopping/ice cream in Lenox. We missed the season of Jacob's Pillow and Tanglewood shows-- will try to catch them next time!

An amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our family vacation here this summer and we had an absolutely fantastic time. My little kids had a blast swimming both in the big pool and the hot tub, which was actually a wonderful way to get in the water on a cool morning. The bedrooms were great, including tons of bathrooms, most connected to the rooms themselves. The porches are outstanding; not only did we play board games on the screened in porch until all hours but we sat on the open decks watching blasting thunderstorms over the lake and an incredible meteor shower late into the night. The kitchen was great and bar area were perfect, and there were so many spices and extras stocked in the pantry that we didn't have to run out for every little thing.

Jeff, the owner is pleasant and easy going to deal with, and really just made the vacation so relaxing and stress free. We would definitely recommend this house for a wonderful vacation in the Berkshires.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect spot for a vacation! We have come here for a number of years - usually with ten people, and it's like moving back in to "our" vacation home every year. There are a number of beautifully decorated bedrooms, most with private baths. There's also an outdoor shower with hot and cold water that is always a favorite. This place is perfect for groups and can handle large family style dinners -- both indoors and on the screened porch.

They have everything you need including serving platters and bowls, plenty of dishes, wine glasses, extra towels, pillows, etc. They even stock extra paper towels and garbage bags! There are two extra fridges in the garage so we can stock up and never have to leave the place.

The pool/hot tub and surrounding decks are where we spend our days, and the screened porch and comfy living room are perfect for evenings and rainy days.

The scenery is just as it appears in pictures -- beautifully landscaped with the lake below and sunset views every night.

We can't wait till our next visit!
