The house was spacious- the great room was spectacular with plenty of seating for our large group. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and look forward to returning, hopefully in the summer so we can enjoy the in ground pool.
Here is the correspondence we had with the owner(s) after our Thanksgiving visit with 12 of our family---and the extent of their response to our concerns. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your home for the Thanksgiving holiday. The house has a great deal of charm and we particularly enjoyed spending time in the Great Room around the fireplace. However, we did want to make you aware of several issues we identified:
1) We found a dead mouse by the fireplace
2) We found mouse droppings in several areas of the house including the kitchen cabinets and in one of the sofa beds (in the den), which left us unable to use that bed.
3) There was no bath soap anywhere in the house.
4) There were no washcloths available. We called Amanda, and we were still not able to locate them. The bath towels are old and tattered and really should be replaced.
5) Kitchen items were sparse, including no potholders and we ran out of dish washing liquid
6) Ice maker in freezer did not work, so we had no ice
7) There was dried fecal-looking material in the lower floor master bathroom sink
8) The front walkways had snow/ice and were not fully cleaned---placing our elderly parents at risk for falling. There was no shovel available to clean areas of snow
9) Refrigerator is dirty and we found moldy vegetables in there
10) Linens were in disarray- we were not able to easily find additional sheets, pillows, or blankets---certainly not the bedding we needed to sleep 12, instead of 10.
11) Overall, house needs an in-depth cleaning- many areas were dusty or had cobwebs

Thanks again for the use of your home.
From Owner: Wow. I had no idea. We haven’t been up there since June because I had an athletic fall and have been in and out of hospitals through September. Let me talk with the pest and cleaning people.
We heard no follow-up and our request to have them refund some of the costs (e.g. the hefty cleaning fee)---since it hadn't been adequately cleaned when we took occupancy) went unanswered. Disappointing.
We had a wonderful time at this place. The bedrooms were very spread out and each had their own bathroom, so our big group could spread out and not get in each other's way. The property was beautiful and remote, the pool was clean, the lawn was mowed, so we were outside the whole time. The rooms all had air conditioners so everyone was comfortable at night. The great room was perfect for games. Really, everything just worked and we can't wait to come back.
We cannot say enough good things about our stay; the house was spacious, eclectic and very well equipped to handle our large group! From top to bottom the property was just perfect for our family gathering; with a stocked kitchen, 5 large bedrooms (several with en suites), and a great open concept living space, we were able to cook meals consistently throughout our stay without ever feeling cramped, slept well, ate together and there was never a wait for a bathroom! The property itself was incredible; we setup a volleyball net, enjoyed the pool and took advantage of the great BBQ! The cute town of Great Barrington is a short drive away and fun to explore; we plan on renting this house annually and will definitely take advantage of the nearby lakes and scenic sites next year - this time we had plenty of fun just hanging around the house. Thanks to the Stern's for being such lovely hosts - we had a few questions upon arrival that were answered promptly and we always felt like we had someone to call on should any additional questions arise. Plenty of linens and the house was in great condition for our family. It was a bit hot when we first arrived but most of the bedrooms had air conditioners and it cooled off at night so that wasn't too much of an issue; the entire house isn't air conditioned but the pool was perfect for cooling off. Thank you again - we'll see you next year!
My family has stayed at this house a number of times and look forward to returning every time we leave. The house is gorgeous and spacious, and the property has character and views. You can basically get lost in the great room, itself a house constructed with charming antique British barn framing within it, and hold a huge dinner around the massive table or bring your whole family around the large fireplace. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with an entertaining bar and wet sink as well as all the other common appliances. The bedrooms are large and house a lot of people and the beds are really comfortable and arranged with enough variety for any family. The yard is fully enclosed and the pool is a wonderful treat on top of it all, large enough for a large family. We love staying at this Berkshire house!
This house is great for a group of friends or relatives because it has a gorgeous large room made out of a barn, and also smaller nooks and spaces with sofas and lamps for quiet reading and conversation, Internet browsing and movie watching. It is tucked back on a quiet dirt road loop where you can take safe walks with children and dogs, while being accessible to the cultural sites the Berkshires are famous for. My extended family is planning another visit later this year.
Dealing with the owners was a pleasure, and everything was neat and clean. The open kitchen area is great for several people cooking together. They have been very generous in leaving available their many art works in this beautifully decorated comfy home.
South Egremont é uma cidade de país pré-por rotação, em uma região sofisticada mas discreta do leste dos Estados Unidos. Sinuosas estradas, trilhas para caminhadas Appalachian, córregos e rio percorrendo campos onde cavalos, cabras e vacas pastam. Cada pessoa que você se encontra que cresceu e ainda vive em Berkshires gosta de dizer-lhe como como um miúdo que posou para Norman Rockwell. Jasper Johns é um dos maiores pintores da vida nos dias de hoje e vive nas proximidades.
