    5/5

    Chris and Jane went above and beyond to make our stay at their home a stand-out experience. We are foodies and always look for restaurants that surprise us with outstanding dishes. We were having a hard time making reservations at several restaurants . Jane and Chris immediately jumped in helping us out and made reservations at 3 different restaurants for us. They also suggested a hike which we did and loved. They were just so darn helpful with everything.

    This home is beautifully designed with soothing colors and textures. The beds are super comfy, the kitchen has high quality everything you would need to cook and the landscape has well thought-out plant material (being a Master Gardener I always notice the plants). The property has a pond with a pond house. My husband did yoga most mornings on the porch of this charming little house.

    The only slight down side would be the WiFi is kinda slow and the signal for Netflix can drop . But this beautiful retreat of a house in the forest will delight everyone!

    5/5

    My friends and I went away for a girls weekend. The pictures don't do it justice! The home is beautiful and the property itself was breathtaking. We didn't have to leave the house all weekend! The pond in the yard was the best part! There was a boat we took out every day to enjoy the outdoors. It was such a relaxing weekend and a nice break from the city. We will definitely be coming back!

    Our stay at Bear Pond was incredible. The owners are wonderful hosts and make you feel so welcome. I felt as if I was staying at my favorite uncle & aunt's home with all the personal touches for the guests. The owner gave us tips on the area and even made a gift basket for our family upon arrival.These hosts don't skimp on making sure there are supplies to use during your stay. The kitchen is a perfect place to do meals at home. If you forgot sunscreen or extra paper towels the home is prepared.The house itself is beautiful, organized, clean and cozy. The whole property has an air of magic to it. It's a very peaceful and safe place.Our family had a wonderful time thanks to the owners of this home and them sharing it with us all.It was such a great time together as a family in the Berkshires. Thank you!

  • Those beautiful chairs

    5/5

    The pictures don't do this property justice - it's even nicer than it looks! You feel as if you're in the middle of nowhere but it's still convenient to the small towns and events in the Berkshires. Beautiful landscaping and enough indoor spaces that our group could spread out or come together as we wished. I stopped to admire the Adirondack chairs placed by the pond several times a day -- although a window covering in the bedroom would have allowed me to start doing so later than sunrise! Our family made some great memories here.

  • Amazing Property and Wonderful Hosts

    5/5

    My wife and I and our two young kids spent a very relaxing week here. Chris (one of the owners) was an amazing host. He reached out a week before our arrival to tell us a bit about the property and inquire as to any particular needs. When we arrived, there was a very thoughtful gift basket awaiting us, including some activities for the kids. The house (especially the kitchen) is very well stocked and thoughtfully furnished. During the day, we spent much time out in the sun room, enjoying the view of the home's large private pond. At night, we enjoyed wood fires in the grand family room (plenty of seasoned firewood graciously provided by the owners). The pond on the property is huge. The kids enjoyed hunting for tadpoles by the shore and going out in the row boat. The entire property is very private - down a long driveway at the end of a private road. Yet only a short drive from attractions in Lee, Lenox, Great Barrington, etc. Communications with Chris were great. He was very responsive and helpful. If you are looking for a secluded and relaxing vacation home, look no further! We look forward to staying here again one day.
