Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much, Andrea! We had a wonderful time, and the home was absolutely beautiful. We actually all voted it the best house we have stayed in, in the ten years we have been doing our family ski trip.

Home Run !

  • 5 of 5

Our only complaint was the wedding weekend went by too fast, other than that it's the best house in a great location for a big gathering. We had 2 families staying at the house, another family lives in the area and another stayed in Lenox. Great house with lots of room to spread out. We're already planning our next gathering but we'll be sure to add a couple more days so we can relax and enjoy all the house and area has to offer. Thank you. A Whitehouse

A large beautiful home! We enjoyed every minute!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family celebration of my husband's big birthday

and we were dazzled by it. Everything I expected and more. The 6 bedrooms and baths and the bed sizes fit our family perfectly. The house was well kept and really decorated beautifully. We had lots of fun playing pool, bocci ball and assembling a puzzle we found in the house. The grounds were spacious with plenty of room in which the kids could run around. Too bad it was too early in the season to use the swimming pool. The owner was responsive to my questions and came around to see how we were doing. The location was perfect-Just 5 minutes away from Stockbridge. A Price Chopper for groceries was only a couple of minutes away in the other direction. We were sad we had to leave and would definitely love to go back. My 10 year old grandson kept saying that the house was so beautiful that he wished he owned it so he could live in it!

weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend getaway with extended family. I gave this as a gift to my in-laws for Christmas and we all had an amazing time. The home was the perfect place for us. We had room for everyone to congregate, but also fabulous nooks and crannies which made for some nice breaks - and for great hiding places during the kids game of hide and seek. As my nephew said when we were leaving, "Can we come back here every year? This is my dream house!" I couldn't have said it better myself.

Fine spot for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a fine venue for our large family group. In addition to housing multiple family members, we used the property to host a special party for a larger number of guests. Andrea and Shawn were very helpful in helping us think through the logistics of working with the property, quick to answer my questions, and were very willing to work with us as we made arrangements with the many vendors we needed for the larger party. They were also very understanding of some of the inevitable glitches that can come up when a large group comes together. The swimming pool was a great get-away for our own family as well as guests who dropped by. If you are thinking of having a special event associated with a family gathering and need a large space, this is a fine choice. (BTW, if you are planning on using the AeroBed, throw in a set of sheets when you pack, as the linens are just for the regular beds.)

Thanks Andrea and Shawn for this lovely venue for a large family event.

My wife and I stayed at this property with five other couples. We had plenty of room, the house is very spacious. We really enjoyed the fireplaces, pool table, and sitting by the in-ground pool. We will definitely return when it's my turn to host the reunion again.

Wonderful home for gathering in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the General Williams House at the end of June. The owners were very responsive and a pleasure to work with. The house location was convenient to Tanglewood, Lenox, Jacob's Pillow. The house itself was beautiful - nicely appointed rooms, many bathrooms, inviting and spacious common area, grill and backyard for meals outside, large dining table, modern kitchen, pool table, pool. We had a fantastic time and we would love to return to this house again!
