Berkshires Lakefront House in tranquil setting close to Butternut, Jiminy Peak and Catamount. Attractive, comfortable, well equipped house in a wooded area on pristine Round Pond in Great Barrington. Relax and enjoy the view from your deck or dock. Fish from the large dock or take the boat out onto the lake. Ideal family retreat and only a short drive to Main St. Great Barrington and cultural attractions (Tanglewood, Rockwell Museum, Aston Magna).
Renters are to provide towels, sheets and pillow cases for 3 queens, 1 full double and 2 twin size beds.
We had a very nice stay at the property. Owner was very helpful the day we arrived. Place is clean and well stocked. Very private. A bit dark in the house, but that is because it is in the woods! Would definitely stay again.
We were originally going to Maine this year to Sebago Lake, but due to Covid-19 those planes were cancelled, we decided to stay closer to home and was very happy with our decision. The home was great lots of rooms, had everything we needed enjoyed floating on the pond to our fires at night! Would recommend this house to family and friends
We spent 6 nights at the house. We enjoyed the private dock on beautiful Round Pond. The house was a perfect size for our family of 4, plus my mom and some friends who came for a couple nights.
Great place to relax. Wonder-full for families. Close to town and items of interest.
We had a wonderful restful time. The setting is beautiful and the house is very comfortable. There is excellent access to many cultural activities in the Berkshires and to Great Barrington.
This house was a wonderful set up for our large extended family. We had 6-10 people at different times during the week. We liked the fact that when sleeping over there was some separation in that there are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs in addition to a large dining table that accommodated a large group. This is in addition to the 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms upstairs. We used the air conditioning unit when needed and it proved to be effective. The kitchen is great and very well stocked. We bbqd on the grill provided. It is a smaller grill but pacing the cooking worked well. We often ate on the lovely deck. We used the provided canoe frequently and enjoyed going around the pond. We used the rowboat less frequently. The pond is super quiet, no motor boats or heavy pond traffic. The house is only about 10 minutes for Great Barrington so getting supplies and going to restaurants was a breeze. Lots of nice towns nearby. The owner answered emails promptly and with some humor. We swam in the pond without any issues. The dock is one of the few that juts out decently into the lake making putting the canoe in and jumping in for a swim quite delightful! Some minor things came up which we did talk about with the owner. One segment of the steps leading down to the dock were a little rickety but the owner came by to address this issue, so hopefully that's a non issue now. Some of our party noticed a bit of a musty odor in the lower level basement. Dominick also said he'd address that (dehumidifier?) There was some construction going on down the road so some parts of our days there were a bit noisy. No one's fault, just the way it is. We also did notice some dust buildup on the master bedroom ceiling fan. Having noted the above minor issues, we'd still heartily recommend this house and location especially if you're bringing a bunch of folks for a relaxing, fun and peaceful stay.
This place was perfect for a group of friends getting together for the weekend.
We had a wonderful weekend, the house was spacious and had everything we needed. It’s in a great location, and we enjoyed the pond a lot! In October, we pretty much had the whole pond to ourselves. Great for kayaking around with the kids, and easy catch and release fishing for them. Definitely hope to stay again.
The most important issue for us was that the lake be a “swimmer’s lake,” free of motor traffic and weeds. We were not disappointed; we loved it! The water could not have been more perfect and the setting is absolutely beautiful. The ladder on the dock was very slippery from algae and we tried to scrub it down; a little scary when climbing out of the water. The house is very comfortable and well stocked. We were not clear whether at times there was air conditioning and at other times not since sometimes the house seemed cooler and dryer than the outside air. Only one complaint— somebody doing target practice every afternoon for about an hour somewhere in the neighborhood!
Great location for hiking and swimming. There is also one kayak and one boat in the property, BBQ grill and a camp fire. Several downsides: the house was not cleaned prior to our arrival (cleaning person forgot to come, and an explanation sheet was missing so we had trouble with the wifi. This was a problem especially since we had no cellular reception in the area. The other thing is that the house only has one AC window unit in the living room. This was good enough most of the time. However, we would still consider coming back. Beautiful house and well equipped.
We just loved this house. It was perfect for my son who is 8 and loved swimming around the lake and especially jumping off the platform. It was also large enough to accommodate friends and family, and well-equipped for grilling and cooking. Very quiet and peaceful with easily accessible boats that are fun to use, and lots of nearby towns to explore. Well worth it!
Our family of 8 adults and 2 children found the house to be comfortable and well equipped. The strongest positive is that it is situated on Round Pond in Great Barrington. Excellent swimming and canoeing. Our 3 year old niece took her first canoe ride. Quite a thrill for her and her parents.
We were two couples and one child, and this house was perfect for us. It was really clean, and had everything we needed. The kitchen is very well-stocked if you want to cook, and we did use the grill on the porch as well. It was quite hot while we were there so we did go in the pond a few times, and took the boat out once. The air conditioning and ceiling fans were welcome. The house is not far from town, with shops and restaurants, but we didn’t find much need to leave our little summer oasis. I would stay at this house again in a second.
Stayed here for a winter holiday weekend and the house is nice. The kids took over the downstairs level allowing the parents to have some peace and quiet upstairs.
Our group of 10 had a great weekend at this home. Communication was easy and the house was the perfect size. Perfect Berkshire location too!
House is great and everything was easy. I'd highly recommend the house.
We just spent a few days at this lovely vacation rental. The owner was very easy to work with and very responsive. The space was very nice-lots of options, with bedrooms and hangout space both upstairs and downstairs. We were 2 adults and 3 young adult kids and had plenty of space. It was immaculate and clean. The kitchen was very well stocked, both in terms of dishes and cookware, but also staples, seasonings, etc. The house is beautifully located on Long Pond and would be a perfect summer destination.
What a wonderful home rental. About a 10-15 minute drive to the mountains, this house was a great find. We were two families with kids, so the set up was perfect--kids in the two downstairs bedrooms, adults in the main/upstairs bedrooms. (with an extra 5th upstairs bedroom.) Two full baths upstairs, one downstairs. The downstairs also had its own couch/tv set up, which was perfect for the downtime in the house (again, kids downstairs, adults upstairs.) Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you'd need to cook yummy meals. Linens are a small added fee, but worth it not to have to travel with them. House also has washer and dryer and working fireplace. Owners were a delight to work with. We look forward to coming back again!
My friends and I were looking to go skiing for New Year's Eve and we stayed here. The home had a great location, very close to the mountain, and there was plenty of room. The downstairs living room was our favorite part! I would definitely recommend this home
