  • Amazing views, plenty of sunlight, very close to Great Barrington


    We stayed here 3 nights with our two little kids for a long weekend skiing at Butternut Ski Area. It's a 15-20 mins drive so pretty close and convenient.

    Great Barrignton downtown is even closer and that worked great for us.

    Kimberly (the host) was absolutely amazing. I asked for suggestions for places to eat etc and she was super helpful and nice.

    The views from the house are exceptional. We stayed there in February and the lake/pond was frozen and snowy, but that didn't take away from the gorgeous views especially from the dinning room.

    The kitchen was updated and had everything we needed.

    Having a fireplace we could use was wonderful! We did enjoy so much cozying up on the couch with the kids and watching tv.

    I'm only dropping one star as the master bedroom mattress was not comfortable, and both me and my husband didn't get a great sleep during our stay. Also the master bedroom has a very strong smell of "old house" and could use some love for sure. The curtains definitely take away from the beauty of the huge glass windows. Yes, definitely will need a way to cover up those windows at night, but please find a more "modern" way to do it :)

    The bathrooms are clean and nice.

    I'd definitely recommend this place 100%. I think we might be back in summer to experience the great lake views :)

  • Nice property


    Overall it was a nice place. My first try with VRBO so I learned a lot. I thought I had picked a place that would be accessible for my husband with mobility handicaps but the house proved challenging with narrow door ways and no grab rails for him. Also, couldn't use fireplace or access the pond (advertised as waterfront). TV was firestick and I couldn't use it. Bummer for news and weather.
