Wonderful place to celebrate with extended family!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a beautiful long weekend in this lovely home. Our extended family of 8 adults and 3 teens were very comfortable in home. There was plenty of space to hang out, both inside and out. We went to several Tanglewood concerts, swam at Lake Mansfield, and enjoyed poking arount the town of Great Barrington- only a short 10 minute walk. Benny and Ephrat made sure we were comfortable and checked in by text message twice during the weekend to be sure we were comfortable. I would highly recommend this property for a weekend get-away in a beautiful home with gorgeous views.

Lovely anniversary weekend

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a long weekend here. We were joined by our adult sons and their significant others. The house has plenty of space, a wonderful view, and is well appointed with everything you need. We are likely to return.

Great Place for Girls Weekend!

  • 4 of 5
What a great weekend! We were welcomed with cheese, crackers and wine. The views are outstanding and the home is beautifully kept. The homeowners take great pride in sharing the ins and outs of the place and provide you with a myriad of information of things to see and places to go. They were especially helpful when asked to recommend a spa close by, Body and Soul was amazing and a quick walk. I would definitely recommend this home for family vacation, visit with friends or just a weekend get away.

Perfect for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the property on January 24-26 for the weekend with 8 other girls. The house had everything we needed! It was warm and cozy and we had the best time cooking and snuggling in front of the fire after skiing at Butternut. The house was a mile from town and made it easy for us to go out Saturday night. We had so much fun we want to make this an annual trip!

Thanks for everything!

Berkshires Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We spent a winter long weekend at this beautiful home and had the most wonderful weekend. There were 2 families, each with 2 young children, and the set up was perfect for us. The view from the kitchen overlooking the mountains was breathtaking. And the location couldn't have been more perfect. We were near skiing, skating, swimming, mini golf, bowling, family friendly restaurants and more. We are already talking about renting it again next year!

Exactly as promised!

  • 5 of 5
We recently hosted a family weekend at this nicely appointed home in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Although we had a large group of 10, everyone was comfortable, from sleeping arrangements, to community space. The well-designed and well-stocked kitchen was perfect for the two home cooked meals we prepared as we watched the sunset change the colors of the foliage from the awesome view the home affords.
The village of Great Barrington is very nice, with many shops for woman and children. A trip to West Stockbridge and the Red Lion Inn is also worth the time, the restaurant is outstanding.
We will definitely consider this residence again and recommend it unconditionally.
