    There aren't enough incredible things to say about this property. Tucked away in the tranquil woods of the Berkshires, it's a true gem among gems. The floor to ceiling windows both upstairs and downstairs give a picturesque view of the lake that’s only steps away. Walk out wrap around decks, screened (downstairs) and open (upstairs), are the absolute perfect place to relax and soak in the nature that surrounds you. The upstairs den is a relaxing nook where you can start a fire, sit back with a glass of wine, and unwind to your music of choice streaming through any of the multiple Sono's speakers around the home.

    The icing on the cake was the master bedroom/bath. Skylights in both rooms let in the perfect amount of light, the bed is beyond comfortable with premium linens and the walk-in shower and standalone tub are absolutely amazing!

    The entire place is spotless. I'd go as far to say it was likely the cleanest we've ever stayed in (both for a hotel and short term rental) and the communication from the property owner was second to none. She made everything so easy for us from check in to check out.

    The location is perfect, central to the best ski resorts, restaurants, towns and shops that the Berkshires have to offer.

    Each detail within this property sets an overall experience that can best be described as a "peaceful, positive energy affirming vibe." If you're lucky enough to secure a week at this rental don't hesitate. We're already planning our next stay.

  • Lovely Retreat in West Otis


    We really loved our stay at West Otis during Thanksgiving week. The area is beautiful in the Fall and the location feels very tranquil and remote yet there are towns nearby and the lake that the house overlooks has a few quiet neighbors so you have tons of privacy and a generous property to explore. We had Snow during our stay which made things more magical and fun! Driving the area is a treat as there are pretty views on any of the roads leading to the house (the valley near Tyringham is gorgeous). The nearby town of Stockbridge (12 miles) offers some great hiking and an adorable little town to explore and shop, and there are tons of hiking trails in the Berkshires!

    The Lovely house is big with 2 floors and a nice entry/mud room but super comfy and modern. The open floor plan was airy and bright is stocked with great furnishings, linens, art, and decor, but never feels crowded or cluttered; and there are lots of nooks to just relax, or gaze out the windows at the pond while having morning coffee on the upper deck porch. The house has everything you need for a peaceful stay in the Berkshires and the kitchen is well equipped if you want to prepare large or small meals, with great new appliances. The beds are medium firm but very comfortable, and we found it easy to relax any time of day. The forested property is very pretty and fun to explore.

    The Hosts are incredibly responsive, helpful and informative will answer any questions quickly.

  • Tranquil Retreat in the Berkshires


    I just returned from a long weekend stay in this amazing home. The views of the pond and woods the house inspired me to paint. The house was beautifully cared for, immaculate and comfortable. The kitchen was fully outfitted to cook if you like, which we did. The host was also very attentive and responsive to our questions. They have thought of everything to make your stay an amazing experience. I highly recommend this host and her house and look forward to returning!

Thank you for your lovely review and the photo of your beautiful watercolor! The house does seem to lend itself to such contemplative activities. Please come again."

  • Absolutely perfect!


    I cannot speak highly enough of this little slice of paradise! A beautiful, well thought out retreat in the Berkshires. Everything was top notch! The beds were comfy, there were many cozy sitting areas. The open floor plan was airy, yet provided private spaces. The view was delightful, so wonderful to look at a lake all day. It was private, quiet, remote, yet so many up to date conveniences. Both the hot tub and deep bathing tub were big hits . Our hosts were so helpful and informative. Loved every minute of our stay!
