"So well equipped, beautiful and a great location"
We loved our stay here, There were 8 of us for a book club weekend. Mary welcomed us and was there if we needed her, but we didn't see her at all if we didn't need her. The house is spectacular, the d… More

"All of us had a perfectly wonderful time!"

The Lake House was paradise. It is situated right in The Berkshires on Rte. 20 with easy access to everything. We golfed, canoed, played tennis, swam, hiked, went to museums, shopped, and spent time a… More
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are happy you had a great time and that the kids loved the boats, and I bet, the water slide, also. The lake is so conducive to kayaking and swimming. The house was designed for privacy with all its bathrooms. Frank even put in an outdoor cold water shower to rinse after swimming! The best part is our location near all Berkshire attractions. Some people, like your group, really took advantage of everything. Some come for the plays, museums, and galleries, and others visit for the nature and beauty around us. Your group enjoyed both! Glad you will return! We would love to have you again! Margie & Frank

"Even better than advertised"
We were a group of 8 friends who have vacationed together annually. This was by far the best appointed house we have rented in 30 years. The owners, Margie and Frank were available,
helpful and pl… More
We were delighted to have you stay with us and hope you return. The Lake House is so close to everything the Berkshires have to offer. The tomato garden adds to the flavor of the place (forgive the pun). By next summer, the lake, boats, and hot tub await you.
"Fantastic home in an absolutely perfect location"
I didn't want to leave. It was the most relaxing and tranquil time I could have imagined. The house is lovely and extremely comfortable -- clean, cozy and situated close to a stunning lake. Spent most… More

My only comment on the "non-responsiveness": Renters have my cell phone and land-line numbers, and I can't respond to concerns if they don't use these.

"Great location, so so ameneties"
On the water with canoes, close to Tanglewood, but tired amenities. Poor second bedroom, not yet cleaned until after we arrived, but most unfortunate it was a very hot weekend and there was no air co… More
I'll just respond to the comment "...not yet cleaned until after we arrived."
The rental agreement specifies a check-in time, and if you arrive earlier, you may find the cleaning lady still there.
I have no problems with other comments that are the renter's opinion, only say that the house is in the woods and we've always found fans adequate on the hottest days.

"Big house, private, but a few drawbacks"
This is a very large house, more than adequate in size for a group of ten people. It has a big yard and a spectacular view of the mountains, especially from an upstairs window. The playroom is a nic… More
I appreciate the review. The reviewer is mistaken on a couple of main points: There are 2 king sized beds - one in the master bed room, and 1 in the room with the large windows and ceiling fan. Regarding the hot water, this is a country house that has a hot water tank and a well. If people do not conserve water, then the hot water may run out and then refill.
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 bedroo… More

My cousin and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was cozy and very convenient for our needs. Having a laundry room just off the kitchen was great when we came back from the lake, the bedrooms we… More
