“Wonderful, Comfortable Berkshire Farmhouse!”
Reviewed May 9, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our group of eight adults had a very wonderful experience at Elaine's Berkshire farmhouse. We found it in excellent condition. Full kitchen had everything we needed to create some wonderful meals. The house itself was very comfortable with room for all and did not feel crowded. Elaine is very warm and hospitable - a great hostess! So much fun to visit her pottery shop out back. I'd like to return with the kids sometime! I highly recommend it!

“Amazing Weekend!!!”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Some girlfriends and I decided to meet up for a weekend and found this wonderful home which was super convenient for all of us - some coming from MA others from upstate NY. When we arrived we received a guided tour of the home which had everything we were looking for. An extremely well stocked kitchen, plenty of space, plenty of beds, wi-fi, a beautiful and huge dining room table, sun porch, was was incredibly clean. The house has amazing charm and we were surprised at how cozy and warm it was considering it's an old farm house - not a draft to be found! The pottery studio out back was full of amazing and unique pottery and the walking trails around the property were fantastic too; Elaine was kind enough to point us in the right direction to access a pretty trail. One afternoon we headed into downtown West Stockbridge (which was right down the road) and we were so surprised to find such a cute downtown full of restaurants and local shops.
I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice getaway - we are already in the planning stages of our next visit.
Thanks for such a great weekend Elaine.

“Cozy New England charm, comfortable for a group”
Reviewed March 14, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Comfortable house for 6 adults, full of New England charm. Screened outdoor porch, spacious dining room table, and fully stocked kitchen. One full bathroom on each floor. Environmentally conscious owner with recycling and composting. Excellent wi-fi. Warm, even on a chilly weekend, because it is well insulated and has high-efficiency windows downstairs. Nice trails in the back of the house, perfect for birdwatching or long walks, and close to the road on the front of the house, making it easy to find even in the dark. House is on the grounds of the owner's excellent pottery business, but it is separate from the house, so it still feels private. Four bedrooms upstairs and one large bedroom downstairs separated from the living room with louver doors. All six of us had a wonderful weekend and the owner could not have been nicer or more welcoming. Planning to return in the fall!

“Lovely Getaway!”
Reviewed March 3, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Elaine is wonderful host and her home is extremely comfortable! Elaine was very responsive during the planning period and very welcoming when we arrived. The house is in a great location and close to lots of activities in The Berkshires. The kitchen is great for a few cooks at once, the beds feel like sleeping in the clouds, and the water pressure is strong. We had a great time enveloped in this rustic charm!

“Wonderful house in a picturesque setting”
Reviewed March 2, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We were a family of 6: myself, my wife and 4 children (aged 5 - 10). We stayed for a week between Christmas and New Year and had hoped to ski at the nearby Catamount, but there was not enough snow.

So instead we stayed in and relaxed, went for nearby walks in the countryside and explored the Berkshires.

It was a wonderful - the house is cozy and warm with a lovely living room with lots of comfy sofas and chairs, a well equipped kitchen, a spacious formal dining room and a porch and 5 lovely bedrooms. It was a short drive to lots of smart Berkshire towns and museums.

Elaine was caring and super helpful without being too intrusive. Her pottery shop was also a real treat.

“Awesome Stay”
Reviewed January 11, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Elaine was great! She may be the nicest person I have ever met. She was very accommodating, warm, and laid back; responsive to our needs, without ever being intrusive. House was great! A cozy 5 bedroom, 2 full bath, with a surprisingly large living space, perfect for a large group of people to enjoy. Location was great! Extremely accessible from the tri-state or Boston areas, with all the "get-away" charm. Centrally located among the cute town centers of Great Barrington, Lee, Lenox, Stockbridge, Housatonic; no more than 20 minutes.
