An almost perfect cottage in the woods
We were two mature couples sharing the house for 10 days. We found the house just about as described. It's down a long driveway bordered by woods. While it's off a main road, you'd never know it. It's quiet, peaceful and dark at night so sleeping is great. The covered deck overlooks trees and wild flowers with butterflies in abundance. There are lots of places to park yourself and enjoy nature. However, the charming town of West Stockbridge is a very short drive away. It's even walkable. Most other Berkshire attractions- the Mount, Jacob's Pillow, Tanglewood, museums are close by. A good supermarket and the Outlets are just a short ride. The furthest away was North Adams with the MASSMOCA art museum where we spent most of a day. Even that was well under an hour. The house was very comfortable and extremely well stocked. There's even an office for those forced to bring work on vacation. About the only things you have to bring are your clothes and toothbrush. The kitchen is totally stocked with condiments and basic cooking ingredients as well as just about every appliance you need if you are cooking in. Netflix is available for an evening spent in the comfortable living room. We did find the hot tub a little difficult to get in to and there were are few other quirks in the house but nothing that spoiled our stay. Don't panic if the owners do not respond immediately. They will within a day or two as stated on the website. It would have been helpful to have a few more directions about where to find items in the house and how to operate things especially the balky door to the deck. The wifi was also inconsistent. Overall, however, this was a superb location, a great house, and one of the best vacations we ever had. Even the weather cooperated with the heat wave breaking the second day of our stay. The house is not centrally air conditioned but has lots of fans and window units in the bedrooms.
An ideal location
The house, down a long unpaved road through woods, is in a very private setting and an ideal location (3 Miles to Tanglewood, 1/2 mile to Main Street in West Stockbridge, close to Norman Rockwell Museum & many other cultural sights). There are no sidewalks on Lenox Road so you cannot walk into West Stockbridge but parking is easy & available. Loved Public Market and 6 Depot for breakfast & lunch. The house has one window air-conditioner in the master suite. The master has very large walk-in closet & bathroom. There are ONLY three small fans in the living room/kitchen area. The week we stayed there was a unusually hot week so it was uncomfortable in the main part of the house until the sun set. We woke early every morning as you must leave the drapes open for the window air-conditioner to work. The kitchen is well-stocked for the most part but microwaveable dishes/plates should be obtained. The dishwasher is below par; I opted to hand wash all our dishes. The highlights of the house: We especially loved the outdoor shower. Always plenty of hot water. And, the covered deck overlooking the beautiful property was ideal. We sat out for breakfast and often had happy hour on the deck. Never had a chance to use the hot tub as it was too hot/humid during the day and too buggy in the evening. Television service was sparse & couldn’t get NETFLIX although WiFi worked well. All in all, we had a good week except for the unseasonably hot temperatures.
Thanks for staying and yes it has been unseasonably hot and humid this summer. The Roku, Netflix and dishwasher are all working fine, not sure what happened for you. All dishes are microwaveable, says it on the backs. House was nice and clean, much appreciated.
Location, location, location
We loved staying at this house. The location was great - secluded off the road by a long driveway and surrounded by woods, yet close to Tanglewood, Lenox, and Stockbridge. The house is very close to the smaller, charming town of West Stockbridge where there is a market/deli, great coffee shop, and a farmer’s market. The house itself is well stocked with kitchen supplies and basically anything we needed. Hot during heatwave because only partially air conditioned but there were many fans. There is also a back deck with awning where we loved sitting overlooking the gardens, woods, and wildlife. We brought our dogs and they were in dog heaven with acres to run around and explore. The owners, Ellen and Michael, were friendly, responsive, and helpful with any questions. All in all, we highly recommend this house!
95% Perfect location!!
This is a roomy, comfortable, beautifully decorated house that had everything we could have wished for. We were two families sharing the house, with kids 11 and 12 years old and a dog. The kids were always happy, the grownups were always happy, and so was the dog :-). The property was beautiful and quiet, with a perfect deck off the kitchen for relaxing at any time of day. The owners were wonderful and generous to work with. The only reason we're giving it a 95% instead of 100% is because two of the bedrooms had either no shades or flimsy blinds - both of which easily let light into the rooms in the morning, which is a bummer if you're on vacation and hoping to sleep in (or hoping that the kids sleep in). Also, we tried the hot tub but it wasn't that hot and had to be kept to 90 F, so not as enjoyable. Otherwise, everything was wonderful.
Thanks for the wonderful review. You left the house in excellent condition, much appreciated. I guess I didn't explain that you need to increase the temp in the hot tub prior to using it, takes about an hour, but that will help me for next year. And shades might be a good idea too!
Perfect place for our getaway.
The house was close to everything we wanted to do. Tanglewood, Norman Rockwell Museum and the Red Lion, yet it is tucked away in a wonderful private spot. The house was equipped with everything we could possibly need. Loved the back porch for coffee in the morning and cocktails at night. I would recommend this home and I will most likely return if I go back to that area.
Glad you liked it!
Great relaxing spot
