  • Nice to get away.


    The lakefront area was scenic and peaceful. The proximity of the property to Great Barrington and Stockbridge was a surprise (we did not know the area). The owner provided materials and tips on local sights and hiking trails that we useful.

    The time of year we went (end of May) turned out to be somewhat buggy - causing me to use the outside fireplace to keep them at bay.

    Overall, a nice experience.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Christine, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We greatly appreciate your feedback, and we would like to share some insights from the homeowner:
    -Regarding the absence of a fenced yard, it is important to note that our property does not feature a fenced-in yard, nor do we advertise it as such. The pictures of the property accurately depict a patio with amenities such as a fire pit, BBQ grill, and patio furniture. Many previous guests have expressed their enjoyment of this patio space.
    -In reference to the view, we take pride in ensuring that the view is as precisely depicted in the website photos. Numerous past guests have specifically highlighted this aspect in their positive comments.
    -We acknowledge that the parking space may be considered limited in size. Our website description explicitly states that the parking spot is suitable for vehicles up to sixteen feet in length, designed to accommodate mid-size SUVs.
    -Concerning the electrical outlets, the cottage is equipped with numerous outlets, and we have not received any prior reports of outlet malfunctions, either before or after your visit. It is possible that a breaker may have tripped, but we have not been notified of any such issue.
    -The refrigerator's cooling performance has not been a subject of complaint from previous guests. To the best of our knowledge, all appliances are in good working condition. A new gas stove was recently acquired, and should the refrigerator be found to be malfunctioning, it will be promptly replaced.
    -With respect to the comments about the leather furniture being cold and uncomfortable, it's important to note that we have made extensive efforts to provide a high level of comfort in the cottage. This includes introducing a brand new king-sized bed for the year 2023 and a new futon added in 2022.
    -It's worth mentioning that your comments appear to be inconsistent with the extensive positive reviews we have consistently received over an extended period.
    Our commitment to all our guests is to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests as evidenced in all other reviews.

  • Nice cabin in the woods


    Quaint cabin tucked away in the Berkshires. For those vacationing with a pet, be aware that on Labor Day weekend this neighborhood puts on a fireworks show right by this house. Also, there really is not any yard, just a small patio. Lots of great hiking in the area.

  • Sweet cabin


    We enjoyed the easy accessibility to the lake and the kayaks. Beautiful hiking nearby. Owner was very helpful and responsive. Probably a 5-star for the price. Our only reasons for 4 are lack of private feeling when others are in the house right in front and not a comfy outdoor space. That said, it really is a sweet spot and we enjoyed ourselves.
