Excellent house for families. Very close to town and skiing. Caretaker extremely responsive and helpful. We had a wonderful long Presidents weekend. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away to the area.

What a beautiful place! The view from the back of the house is glorious and manages to be inspiring and relaxing at the same time. The house is lovely, complete with a high-end kitchen and luxurious touches from top to bottom with plenty of room for a large group or an extended family. The pool and hot tub are spectacular, and the teen boys staying with us got lots of use out of the basketball court! The house is only 10 minutes from the center of Great Barrington, and close to many attractions. Sarah, the caretaker, was incredibly helpful and prompt when we contacted her. We will definitely be coming back!

Our family of 9 traveled in several cars on arrival day. Each group was spellbound by the views that suddenly appeared as we turned through the forest toward the house. The younger ones raced to the pool and basketball court down the hill. The adults were thrilled with the open layout of the house which offered privacy to each family but lots of space for time together.

The kitchen is so large and well-supplied that several cooks could work at the same time. There are so many different spaces for lounging and conversation we could be alone or all together as the mood struck. We stayed for the entire month of July and never tired of the views, often ending up just watching the changing patterns of sun and clouds through the afternoon and evening. The sports area, games, gym, pool, hot-tub, sauna, and media room were all in use in the course of a day. All of the equipment worked perfectly and the instructions were easy to understand.

The caretakers, Sarah and Gordon, were always helpful and quick to respond, although we had few requests.

Several of our family members like to take long walks. The house is several miles from town on narrow country roads so they did not feel safe doing this, although other walkers and runners were seen in the mornings. They did however find a lake, a campus, and other areas for walking after a short drive. Despite being a few miles from Great Barrington the house is easily accessible to the other Berkshire towns and points of interest, as well as to food markets and restaurants.

Ten of us stayed an extended weekend to celebrate my birthday.

The house is stunning. The kitchen is enormous, the great room is gorgeous, and the fireplace was a welcome sight on an unseasonably cold night. The house has so many areas for lounging and relaxing. More than enough space for the 10 of us! The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. The pool and the hot tub were easy to operate and were amazing additions. The views are - in a word - breathtaking.

The location of the property is ideal for other activities in the Berkshires. We went for a hike near Bash Bish Falls - a 20-25 minute drive - and went to a Shakespeare production in Lenox - just about 15 minutes away. It's also only about 15-20 minutes from Tanglewood, and 12 minutes from shopping and grocery stores along Main Street in Great Barrington.

We did have a couple of issues come up - the propane ran out and affected our heater, and the grill wasn't working our weekend. Sarah and Gordon were very responsive regarding these issues, and overall this didn't significantly affect what a great time we had.

Hope you enjoy the house as much as we did!
