The communication with the owner, Teva, was exceptional and appreciated as we had plenty of questions. I was initially concerned about the road noise we would hear when being outside, but between the kids playing and enjoying our music on the Sonos speaker it was no issue at all. Indoors, we could not hear it at all.
The grounds on the property are expansive and the kids had a blast exploring all around (yet, the parents felt safe because they were contained and never 'too far'). We particularly enjoyed the fire pit, the hammock and the side deck seating. The inside of the home is beautiful - architecturally interesting and provides plenty of room for everyone. As others have noted, the welcome goodies were top-notch! The extra touches like that, the speakers, plentiful supplies of bedding/towels/household items made the stay super easy for us and meant less to pack.
This was our first time to the Berkshires and it did not disappoint. I'm so happy we picked a home that was in such close proximity to all the local destinations (truly in the middle of everything). We highly recommend saying hi to the happy cows and enjoying the fresh ice cream at High Lawn Farm (in Lee). Also, a hike to the top of Momument Mountain will give you a view well worth your efforts!
Thanks, Teva and Berkshires for an excellent COVID-fall break we'll never forget!
