My son and I stayed here for most of a week. The property is positively magnificent. The sprawling lawns, gardens, pond with resident heron, and mountain view were divine. The pool was crystal clear and the water heavenly. The house is impeccably maintained and gorgeously decorated. Every imaginable amenity is there. I honestly couldn't find a single flaw. I had come to the Berkshires to go to Tanglewood and it was a driveable distance. Quite close to Great Barrington (great for shopping), BashBish Falls, South Egremont, etc. A Caretaker was on hand for any problems (there weren't any), and the owner Jonathan is wonderful to work with. Both my son and I had had tough years and this was the perfect antidote! Wish I were there now!

My husband, son and I spent a great week at Jonathan's house. The pictures are very accurate - the space is THAT great! The house is beautifully decorated, without seeming inaccessible. Our 7 year old was very much at home and we only had to limit his access to one room that had a beautiful grandfather clock that would never have survived his inquisitive hands! The kitchen layout takes a little getting used to (e.g., the fridge/freezer are drawers and that's not immediately obvious), but everything you need is there and it's fine for a visit. The pizza oven is a lot of fun for a group activity and well worth the (marginal) effort. The local grocery store is great and very close. The gourmet market is also good, but very pricey. Go to the grocery store first - you'll probably find everything you need there. Bring reusable bags though, otherwise you have to pay for bags. (There are reusable bags at the house.) We had family and friends visit while we were there and even though we were "fully booked" - it never seemed crowded. There are many different spaces for everyone to spread out and do what they want. We didn't need them, but I imagine the fireplaces are quite cozy in the colder months and since a few of our family members are professional musicians, the piano was a nice addition. The pool was great - clean and heated. The house is close to many great attractions - just keep in mind that it's local roads, so give yourself enough time to get where you're going. It will take longer than you think. Jonathan was very gracious, responsive and helpful. We hope to return next year.....for a longer stay.

We have rented the Red Barn for 3 months this winter. We loved all the time we spent there. The house is beautiful. The views amazing. The sunsets views from the living room can not be beat. Had family join us for holiday and the house easily accommodated everyone and the kitchen was a pleasure to work in.
