“Ideal location missing some details”

Those who used the cottage this week ranged from me alone to one night with eight people for one night. Sleeping was not a problem. The house is ideally located between Lenox and Stockbridge and for us that was a highlight. It is truly on the water and although not suitable for swimming due to the lily pads we had access to canoes and a kayak which we thoroughly enjoyed. The screened-in porch is lovely. The house has antiques, art, and kitsch which we liked and yet I agree with other renters that items we look for need to be more organized as closets are unkempt. This is my sixth different rental in the area so I have room for comparison. On the down side - this is the only rental that had the renters put sheets on the beds. It is typical that the landlord will ask you to wash sheets and towels but what I hadn't planned on was that this was an extremely lengthy process due to a smallish washer and low pressure. The owner was not very responsive to household concerns even with multiple messages and I suggest he have a property manager or a neighbor a renter could speak to promptly. As one reviewer pointed out, with some investment of organization and cleanliness this would be ideal. Would we rent it again even with the disappointments? - yes. However, I would bring my own linens and not spend hours of my vacation there doing laundry.

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.

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 conditioning and poor ventilation. Could be a great house if fixed up and cleaned up and tidied up.

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.

Nice house but tired bathrooms and kitchen. One great bedroom, two so so. Hot one nite and needed non existing a/c. Great screened porch with view of water. Canoe was a plus. With a little updating and a good cleaning,it could be fantastic.
