Living in the Midwest, we enjoyed a wonderful long weekend in New England. The cottage was wonderful. We ate out some but also enjoyed making meals and staying in, with the well equipped kitchen. A wonderful place to relax and recharge!
Loved the location of this very cute cottage in this scenic town. Plenty of space for us for the weekend. Ashintully Gardens was directly across the street and we took a walk through the property--what a view when you get up to where the ruins are. Easy ride over to Stockbridge and great starting point to exploring the Berkshires. Passed the Big Y grocery store on the way to the cottage--Right off the Mass Pike. Loved having the closed in patio. Had breakfast out there every morning. Beds were comfortable, showers were adequate, smartly decorated, kitchen nicely stocked but not a lot of counter space for food prep but not really a big deal. Cell phone reception was spotty but not a big deal for us. TV is tiny but we only watched a couple of DVD's one evening. The only con would be the ultrasonic mouse repeller--they made clicking noises every few minutes. Thought it was the heat turning on but realized that wasn't it--tried not to pay attention to it. Never saw any critters either. Norman Rockwell museum is a must visit. Poked around Stockbridge and the shops. Went hiking at McLennan Reservation which is about a mile or two down the street from the cottage. Went apple picking at Windy Hill Farm in Great Barrington--lots and lots of apples. Visited Les Trois Emme Vineyard & Winery in New Marlborough. Overall loved the location and would love to stay here again and would recommend the cottage to as a good place to for exploring the Berkshires.
