“Wonderful old farmhouse for families with children.”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We spent 3 nights here, 2 with sons, daughters in law and four grandchildren. There were plenty of bedroom plus a foldout couch, and the kitchen was very well equipped. One of my grandsons (8) asked when we would be coming back.. The kids played croquet, and we did a scavenger hunt on the hiking paths behind the house. If you love pottery, the owner's shop is right on the property.

The house is a short drive from West Stockbridge, a charming unspoiled Berkshire town with a studio/coffee house owned by a National Geographic photographer plus a general store that makes its own vanilla extract and maple syrup- in continuous business since 1888.

Liked best: The charm of the old house (1840)
Liked least: Would have liked more explicit directions from the owner. Map quest was confusing.

“Winter wonderland”
Reviewed February 24, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We just spent a wonderful week staying at the Berkshire Farmhouse. The house was exactly as pictured, and Elaine was a warm and friendly host. She gave us a lot of great information as well as let us borrow her snow shoes, which proved to be a lot of fun during our very snowy week. The location of the house was great, close to all the wonderful towns in the Berkshires as well as multiple alpine skiing mountains and cross country trails. I highly recommend staying in Elaine's house and when we come back to the Berkshires we will definitely stay there again!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed January 25, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We were a group of three family with 7 kids under the age of 8 (including two infants). The Farmhouse was a perfect place for us to gather. We equipped kitchen, open floor plan, lots of beds and mattresses, and a beautiful property to walk around.

“Our Norman Rockwell Christmas”
Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in December 2014
1
person found this review helpful

I rented the farm house for my family's "Norman Rockwell Christmas" and it was honestly the best choice of locations I could have made. It fit and exceeded all of our needs - having a bedroom on the first floor and handrails on the shower for my elderly parents; the smart TV and high speed internet for my techie 17 year old nephew, and, for all of us, the feeling you get from being at home even though you are in a rental.

What also made our stay so special was Elaine herself. All through our e-mail communication prior to our stay until we left, she was incredibly helpful, kind, and engaging. You can tell she takes pride in her home and she truly thinks of the comfort and enjoyment of her renters.

Liked best: The combination of the home's charm and beauty, Elaine's stocking of the home with all guests may need, and Elaine herself
Liked least: I would have liked the fireplace to have been functional, but knew before renting it was not operational.

“Cozy Farmhouse”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in December 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We had a lovely (but too short!) stay at this farmhouse. We loved West Stockbridge, with its cute little shops and amazing coffee. The house was the perfect size for the 5 of us, and could have fit several more. It has lots of seating in the living room and a nice big dining room table. The place feels lived-in, not like some rental places that have the bare minimum. There are lovely pillows, rugs, and blankets that seem to have been collected over the years, maybe from travels abroad, lending the space a personal feel. The kitchen has plenty of silverware and almost anything else you could need for a vacation stay. Elaine also recommended a beautiful walk for us to go on in the neighborhood. We had a wonderful time.

“Well-situated, quiet, comfortable farm house in the Berkshires”
Reviewed October 28, 2014 for a stay in October 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Our group of 9 friends stayed here for two nights in late October. Everyone was pleased with the accomodations. The house is close to Stockbridge, Lee, and Lenox. It is nestled in the hills, surrounded by trees, and has a walking trail along a river across the road. There was plenty of space with a large living room, dining room, and screened porch. Eileen, the owner,
was quite pleasant and helpful. And the price was much appreciated considering how much one could spend to stay nearby.

“Rustic Farmhouse”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We were a group nine. We found the house to have a rustic charm complete with hardwood floors and exposed beams in the walls and ceilings. We tended to congregate in the living room and on the screened-in porch. The Kitchen was well supplied and easy to work in. The lovely dining room seats 12. Our bed was comfortable and cozy. The yard was large enough for us to play crochet and bocci. Even though the farm house is in a country setting, it is only a short drive away from the charming towns of Stockbridge, Great Barrington, and Lee. Lastly, the owner was friendly and helpful. She went out of her way to buy us a crochet set, provide us with candles, show us how to work various things, etc. She made our stay a real pleasure that we look forward to repeating next year!
